Raymond Moody on "Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife"

October 24, 2012

In 1975, Dr. Raymond Moody coined the term "near death experience" and published the first definitive account of patients who described dying and coming back to life.  He tells Steve Paulson what he's come to believe after listening to thousands of reports.



Professor Moody spent forty years trying to figure out what happens after death? You rot.

Apparently, little changes in mere millennia. Contemporary Greeks thought dead in the street later sit up all the time, after sobering up.

UVA grants PhDs to twenty-four-year-old geniuses who can't locate their own buttocks with both hands? Astonishing.

The cranio-physiological states of stressed loved ones at deathbeds are likely "not compromised"?

A doctor trying to resuscitate her own mother had a delusional experience? Shocking!

Four-plus-dimensional surging vortices of energy - "Words are failing me."

Me, too.

Paulson: "What you've been talking about, the vast majority of neuroscientists would say is not possible."

The vast majority wouldn't waste their breath or time, one way or the other.

"We haven't yet arrived at science."

Not in Alabama, apparently. To think - UNLV had Nobel within its grasp!

Here's how you can induce one of these experiences: using a metal hammer of stout size (claw, ball-peen, sledge etc.) direct a sharp blow to your own cranium. If the first impact fails to elicit the desired response, keep at it.
