Science and the Near-Death Experience – An Exciting New Book by Chris Carter

Science and the Near-Death Experience by Chris Carter

"Science and the Near-Death Experience" by Chris Carter

Chris Carter, author of, “Parapsychology and the Skeptics,” has the parapsychology community buzzing about his new work, “Science and the Near-Death Experience: How Consciousness Survives Death.” 

Using evidence from scientific studies, quantum mechanics, and consciousness research, Carter reveals how consciousness does not depend on the brain and may, in fact, survive the death of our bodies. Examining ancient and modern accounts of NDEs from around the world, including China, India, and tribal societies such as the Native American and the Maori, he explains how NDEs provide evidence of consciousness surviving the death of our bodies. He looks at the many psychological and physiological explanations for NDEs raised by skeptics–such as stress, birth memories, or oxygen starvation–and clearly shows why each of them fails to truly explain the NDE. Exploring the similarities between NDEs and visions experienced during actual death and the intersection of physics and consciousness, Carter uncovers the truth about mind, matter, and life after death. 

Carter challenges materialist arguments against consciousness surviving death (that consciousness is wholly a creation of the brain) and shows how near-death experiences (NDEs) may truly provide a glimpse of an awaiting afterlife.

Stacy Horn, author of “Unbelievable” (a history of Duke University’s Rhine Research Center) says on her blog, “I am very excited to learn that Chris Carter’s new book, Science and the Near-Death Experience is out!! He did such a great job with his previous book, Parapsychology and the Skeptics.”

Former Senator Ted Stevens Had A Premonition He Would Die In A Plane Crash

Senator Ted Stevens Foretold His Death

Several sources have reported briefly on the anecdote that Ted Stevens, the former Alaska senator who died August 9 in a plane crash, had a premonition of his death.

Alaska Pride reports: “One fact not widely reported is that Senator Stevens reportedly had a premonition that he would die in a plane crash. This premonition occurred back during the 1970s, before he was involved in a plane crash at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport on December 4th, 1978 that killed five of seven people on board, including his first wife, Ann. As a result, Senator Stevens placed a premium on air safety during his stewardship, becoming a key supporter of legislation intended to help relatives of those killed in air crashes.”

The Washington Post reported: “…he told acquaintances of a premonition that he would die in one of the small, tinny airplanes that traverse Alaska’s wilderness.”

The premonition is mentioned briefly in most reports of his death, and the mention typically amounts to something like, “Stevens once spoke of a premonition,” or “Stevens told acquaintances of a premonition,” or just, “Stevens reportedly had a premonition…”

Does anyone know where to find the original report of his premonition, or where more details are spelled out?
