Science has been slow to accept the link between the spiritual and the scientific, but recent findings are forcing some scientists to consider the possibility of the survival of consciousness beyond physical death. Dr Sam Parnia, cardiologist, is one of them. He and his team, who have recently completed a three-year study on over 1500 patients in both US and UK hospitals, found:
Cardiac Arrest survivors commonly experience a broad range of cognitive themes, with 2% exhibiting full awareness. This supports other recent studies that have indicated consciousness may be present despite clinically undetectable consciousness.
In 1955, Neurosurgeon Dr Wilder Penfield stimulated a patient’s right temporal lobe and induced a sensation of the person leaving the body, as well as many other phenomena such as hearing music and recalling past events as if they were happening in the present. We suggest that these sensations appear to imply that our consciousness is not limited to our physical bodies, irrespective of whether these phenomena are the result of the stimulation of the temporoparietal junction, as claimed by Blanke and Arzy (2005) or the loss of blood to the brain, which is the most commonly accepted explanation.
Similar experiences have also been noted by Dr James Whinnery in centrifuge experiments where extreme G-forces exerted on fighter pilots resulted in the reduction of blood flow to the brain and frequently led to a ‘gravity induced loss of consciousness’. During training exercises and even in combat, fighter pilots have reported experiencing these effects too and one of the pilots shared that, while in this state of unconsciousness, he was aware of being on the wing of his plane watching his body fly the plane.
In a famous experiment in the 1960s, parapsychologist Charles Tart and colleagues, tested a woman who claimed that she often was aware of being “out of her body” during sleep. They placed a randomly selected number on a shelf above her bed while she was sleeping and observed her to ensure she did not physically get up to check the number. On awaking, she correctly identified the number written on the paper. Despite stringent checks, there appeared to be no reasonable explanation for this beyond her having read the number as she ‘floated’ above her body while she slept.
Added to these examples, we have the renowned personal medical cases of Dr Eben Alexander and Anita Moorjani who have written wonderful books about their experiences of being conscious, although moribund.
Our discussions of the brain and consciousness have tended to be limited to that of a singular experience, or as we read in The Keys of Enoch®, Key 214: 8,
I (Dr. Hurtak) was shown how man conceives of his consciousness with a “period” of time which becomes a focal point of containment and does not allow for the ongoing movement of his consciousness flow.
In the examples discussed here, we see growing awareness of consciousness unlimited by the physical body in scientific testing and medical and personal examples. There are also a number of anecdotal reports in spiritual literature and in the work of those investigating the phenomena of consciousness, such as the late Robert Monroe of the Monroe Institute.
Humanity’s consciousness is thus beginning to “understand that both space and time do not really exist, but are only a series of dots mirroring his/her consciousness which is beyond beginning and end.” (Key 307:3)
