Dr Pim Van Lommel’s take on Consciousness and NDE (Near-Death Experience)
An interview by Iain McNay
Dr Pim Van Lommel has gained a reputation for his knowledge and research into NDE and so has authority on the subject of consciousness and NDE.
In 2007 he published his book, Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience.
In this interview he looks in detail into what actually happens in people’s experiences during a NDE, and how it can dramatically change their lives. It raises such fundamental questions as: ‘Where is Consciousness located?’ ‘What Happens when we die’ ‘Who am I?’
Regarding research by Dr Van Lommel, you might check out his study of 344 heart patients resuscitated after cardiac arrest, of which 62 reported having an NDE. All had been clinically dead at some point during their treatment.
