    1 thought on “Science & the Near-death Experience: How Consciousness Survives Death

    1. This book is a cut above most of its fellows in the New Age or Spirituality shelves in the bookstore It raises many issues, confronting normative science with anomalous data, but draws few convincing conclusions.A strength of the book is its attack on certain kinds of monistic materialisms, particularly those which see mind as entirely dependent upon and derived from brain Here the evidences leading to contemporary quantam physics and of placebo effects, ESP, cognitive emotive therapies and espe [...]

    2. This book does a good job of summing up the primary objections to the strict materialist assumption of mind brain The book starts with consciousness and neuroscience, then moves from there into the near death experience while addressing all of the materialist arguments.It s interesting to note that as a last ditch attempt to get away from an afterlife scenario, many materialists will claim telepathy or clairvoyance might be involved two phenomena they deny as pseudoscience under any other contex [...]

    3. This book makes fascinating reading I hadn t been much interested in NDEs and their validity didn t much matter to me one way or the other as evidence for life after death I had been vaguely aware of the scientific explanations for them which which would dismiss their validity But this book changed my opinion The reality and validity of such experience seems very plausible Carter deals very well with the usual materialist explanations for NDEs and finds them wanting I would normally expect a lot [...]

    4. Good book that references a lot of studies and scientific facts to convincingly make the argument that the mind is separate from the brain and that our consciousness survives death First part of the book was really technical and discussed a lot of scientific and biological facts and studies, but it was still interesting to read about The rest of the book contained a lot of verifiable case studies and examples of near death experiences I don t see how someone could read all of the facts and argum [...]

    5. Science And he Near Death Experience How Consciousness Survives Death is the second book of a trilogy by Chris Carter As far as NDE books go I d say this book is definitely well researched and logically presented The first book of the trilogy is called Science and Psychic Phenomena The Fall of the House of Skeptics and the third is Science and the Afterlife Experience Evidence for the Immortality of Consciousness In Science And The Near Death Experience, Carter may not be revealing any new infor [...]

    6. This was too academic for me I probably could ve understood it but I ve already read other things that offered some proof skepticism The amount of work I d have needed to expend to get additional proof skepticism didn t seem worth it.The author is fond of directly quoting brilliant people This is all good, but I like my books to be succinct distillations of wisdom that are as easy to understand as possible I think the author could ve done this as other authors have For example, even though I did [...]

    7. Carter produces a thorough scientific investigation accreting the case for the separation of consciousness from matter and the inadequacy of materialism to account for NDEs He provides incontrivertable proof within the parameters of, and buttressed by, quantum mechanic theory.The question of whether consciousness can permanently survive after death rather than simply while near death is evidenced but not proven beyond reasonable doubt by studies of deathbed visions, the content of which are cons [...]

    8. This is an excellent introduction to the subject of NDEs If you ve been reading into the area for any amount of time you may be frustrated by the seeming repetition of the essential ideas, but, then, this book was not written for you Rather, this book was written to introduce the topic to neophytes.Where this book misses a step, though, is that it involves itself in demeaning attacks on the materialists in the same way that they have attacked non materialists This is not helpful Good news the at [...]

    9. Review, and rating, pending.But, meanwhile, most importantly if you accept the author s line of reasoning and I m not saying you should as providing evidence of an afterlife, then you may as well note that his evidence says that prior beliefs play no role in determining anything about near death experiences Everyone gets the same peace and joy and reunion with loved ones et cetera So ultimately there s little point in worrying about whether it s true or not or altering your behavior you re going [...]

    10. A well argued book that is unashamedly pro the near death experience as proof that consciousness survives beyond death Carter draws on philosophical and scientific research, and develops his case from these writings.

    11. An book with interesting patches about quantum physics and his defense for the separation of mind and body arguing against materialism naturalism.

    12. I did not think this book was written very well He stopped short of proving that near death experiences are real.
