A neurosurgeon describes his journey to heaven while he was in a coma.
A famed Harvard neurosurgeon says his near death experience has completely changed his scientific views on “consciousness after death”.
In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was in a coma for seven days with bacterial meningitis. During this time, the doctor claims that although his cortex or the area of the brain which controls our thoughts and emotions was ‘inactive’, his consciousness was still functioning.
Like many others who have claimed to have traveled to another place or seen heaven, Alexander conveys he, too, journeyed to another dimension where the presence of God, peace, love and a higher consciousness surrounded him.
As a medical doctor and a scientist, the doctor is well aware of what can occur in the brain when someone is close to death. A prior skeptic of those professing out of body experiences, the neurosurgeon explains, “According to current medical understanding of the brain and mind, there is absolutely no way that I could have experienced even a dim and limited consciousness during my time in the coma, much less the hyper-vivid and completely coherent odyssey I underwent.”
What do you think? Are these experiences real or is there some scientific explanation that has not yet been discovered to explain these claims?
