Renowned near-death researcher Dr. Raymond Moody was joined by editor and author Roy Abraham Varghese for a discussion about life-after-death, and what lies on the other side. Moody said he'd recently become more confident about the reality of life-after-death because of numerous accounts of "shared death experiences." Bystanders who were at the deathbed of a loved one reported seeing a light, the appearance of a tunnel, and "even including...co-participating in the panoramic life-review of the person who was passing away," Moody detailed. They're in effect "empathically co-living the dying experience of those that are close to them," he added.
Varghese has also concluded that life-after-death is genuine, after correlating a variety of data including cross-cultural beliefs throughout history, and contemporary testimonies from near-death experiencers. He noted that a new type of NDE has been reported, similar to the 'shared death experience.' Three soldiers were hit by a bomb, and they all reported seeing each other leaving their bodies.
The two authors agreed that "the other side" wasn't a physical place as we would typically understand it. "What we're dealing with is another state of existence that is outside the framework of time and space,"-- for instance, experiencers describe seeing everything all at once in their life review, Moody explained. He has a new book coming out called Between Two Worlds (co-authored with Paul Perry) and the first chapter is available as a free download here.
Last hour guest, paranormal investigator Joshua P. Warren shared two reports. One concerned an Egyptian pictograph in the village of Nazlet el Samman, that possibly portrayed an alien. The relic was recently covered over with plaster, perhaps in reaction to the publicity. Warren also discussed a doomsday scenario that was shared with him in a private document, outlining how Earth may be vulnerable to a gamma ray burst that could come our way in 2012.
