A hugely knowledgeable neurosurgeon who had operated on hundreds of thousands of brains during his occupation, Alexander knew that what humans of religion name the “soul” is mostly a made of mind chemistry. NDEs, he might were the 1st to give an explanation for, may suppose genuine to the folks having them, yet truthfully they're easily fantasies produced through brains less than severe pressure.
Then got here the day whilst Dr. Alexander’s personal mind was once attacked by means of an incredibly infrequent affliction. The a part of the mind that controls idea and emotion—and in essence makes us human— close down thoroughly. For seven days Alexander lay in a health facility mattress in a deep coma. Then, as his medical professionals weighed the potential for preventing remedy, Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had come again.
Alexander’s restoration is through all money owed a scientific miracle. however the genuine miracle of his tale lies in other places. whereas his physique lay in coma, Alexander journeyed past this international and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the private geographical regions of super-physical life. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine resource of the universe itself.
This tale feels like the wild and beautiful imaginings of a talented fable author. however it isn't really delusion. earlier than Alexander underwent his trip, he couldn't reconcile his wisdom of neuroscience with any trust in heaven, God, or the soul. That trouble with trust created an empty area that no expert triumph may possibly erase. this present day he's a physician who believes that precise overall healthiness could be completed simply after we discover that God and the soul are actual and that dying isn't the finish of private life yet just a transition.
This tale will be awesome regardless of who it occurred to. That it occurred to Dr. Alexander makes it innovative. No scientist or individual of religion may be in a position to forget about it. examining it's going to swap your life.
