      "I was watching from the corner of the room. And I saw this white
      light." http://tinyurl.com/bq9ug

      *** UA doctor offers reason for near-death experience:
      As the body fails, consciousness "leaks out" of the body and
      becomes part of the "quantum void," he said. In that state,
      consciousness can exist "for a time."

      *** Dave Bennett's near-death experience:
      "I was in a dark void, but I felt a great peace. Then a light started
      to glow around me, and I saw several light beings ...

      Brinkley was in Spokane Monday visiting sick veterans at the local
      Veterans Administration hospital. http://tinyurl.com/embqg

      *** From life, to death, to life: Dick Reissner's NDE:
      As the flatline on his heart monitor sounded his demise, the last
      thing Reissner remembers seeing was the startled look on his
      wife's face, which Sue Reissner refers to as her "silent scream."

      *** Author remembers meaning of life with near-death experience:
      During the operation, a slip of the scalpel turned a nondescript
      surgery into a flat-line emergency during which he became eerily
      detached from his body yet aware of people and events immediately
      surrounding him. http://tinyurl.com/errba

      *** Near-death survivors recall "the Other Side":
      The survey by psychiatrist Peter Fenwick of Kings College in London
      followed a television program on the subject, after which 2,000
      letters were received -- focused on correspondents who seemed to
      have what researchers describe as "core" experiences,
      Spiritdaily.com reported recently. http://tinyurl.com/kfrn4

      *** A near-death experience:
      The New York chapter of the International Association for Near-Death

      experience while working as a commercial diver in California in
      1984. http://tinyurl.com/kn4dt

      *** Sharing their near-death experiences:
      "People who were brain-dead could see what was going on in a
      waiting room, or around them, in precise detail. We are not talking
      about a hallucination here because it was quite real," he said.

      *** Video: Christian Andreason describes his NDE:
      "I felt myself being lifted up and surrounded by this light," he said.
      In real time, he was only gone for two minutes, but what he saw felt
      like it lasted a lifetime. http://tinyurl.com/7jn83

      *** Nearly comatose man's brain rewires itself in most dramatic
      recovery in US history:
      Doctors have their first proof that a man who was barely conscious
      for nearly 20 years regained speech and movement because his
      brain spontaneously rewired itself by growing tiny new nerve
      connections to replace the ones sheared apart in a car crash.

      *** Researchers find molecular "brake"' to cell death:
      Researchers at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer
      Center have significantly refined the scientific understanding of how
      a cell begins the process of self-destruction - an advance they say
      may help in the design of more targeted cancer therapies.

      *** Learning about life from those facing death:
      "Life happens now and it can be lost in yesterday or misspent
      waiting for tomorrow," says Dr. William E. Hablitzel, author of "Dying

      and Wisdom along Life's Journey."

      *** Brushes with death renew life for most:

      spirituality, said Lee W. Bailey, philosophy and religion professor at
      Ithaca College in New York.

      actual clinical death have a near death experience," according to
      Peter Fenwick of the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London.

      *** "Mind over matter" no longer science fiction:
      Brunner and two colleagues from the state-financed Wadsworth
      Center in Albany, New York were demonstrating a "brain computer
      interface (BCI)," an astounding technology which digitalizes brain
      signals emitted as electrical impulses -- picked up by the electrodes
      -- to convey intent. http://tinyurl.com/k4qvd

      *** Human brain waves control robot:
      In a step toward linking a person's thoughts to machines, Japanese
      automaker Honda said it has developed a technology that uses brain
      signals to control a robot's very simple moves.

      *** Coming soon: mind-reading computers:
      An "emotionally aware" computer being developed by British and
      American scientists will be able to read an individual's thoughts by
      analyzing a combination of facial movements that represent
      underlying feelings. http://tinyurl.com/gwqlq

      *** Woman with perfect memory baffles scientists:
      Give her any date, she said, and she could recall the day of the week,
      usually what the weather was like on that day, personal details of her
      life at that time, and major news events that occurred on that date.

      *** Satellite could open door on extra dimension:
      An exotic theory, which attempts to unify the laws of physics by
      proposing the existence of an extra fourth spatial dimension, could
      be tested using a satellite to be launched in 2007.

      *** The strange world of quantum entanglement:
      Entanglement is a strange feature of quantum physics, the science
      of the very small. It's possible to link together two quantum particles,
      photons of light or atoms, for example, in a special way that
      makes them effectively two parts of the same entity. You can then
      separate them as far as you like, and a change in one is instantly
      reflected in the other. http://tinyurl.com/jgnxv

      *** Molecule-sized switch could control DNA machines:
      A molecule-sized switch just 50 nanometers wide may someday
      control microscopic machines and also could make DNA
      sequencing faster, less expensive, and more precise.

      *** The past-life memories of children:
      His book "Life Before Life: A Scientific Investigation of Children's
      Memories of Previous Lives" tries to verify statements from children
      who claim to have had past-life experiences.

      death and life and everything in between":
      Carter Phipps, senior editor of "What Is Enlightenment?" magazine,
      takes readers on a scientific and philosophical journey into the
      whole evolving process of death, reincarnation, and the afterlife.

      *** Dreams that predict the future:
      Famous psychic Edgar Cayce maintained that the visions presented
      in dreams are necessary for personal development and should be
      applied in waking life. http://tinyurl.com/fqjq3

      *** Famous discoveries from dreams:
      Otto Loewi and his Nobel Prize winning dream, Srinivasa
      Ramanujan and his mathematical discoveries, Kekule and his
      molecular discoveries, Louis Agassiz and his fossil discovery,
      Madame CJ Walker and her million dollar product, Elias Howe and
      the sewing machine, Abraham Lincoln and his premonition of death,
      Paul McCartney and "Yesterday", Mary Shelley and "Frankenstein",
      Stephen King and "Misery", Robert Louis Stephenson and Dr. Jekyll
      and Mr. Hyde, Jack Nicklaus and his champion-winnng golf swing.

      *** Tap your dreams to change your life:
      A young guitarist has a dream in which he hears amazing guitar riffs.
      He awoke abruptly and, in a near panic, grabbed his guitar, turned on
      his recorder, and played the riffs from his dream before they faded
      from his mind. The resulting song became the band's first
      number one hit. The song revolutionized rock music. The young
      guitarist was Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and the song is
      "Satisfaction." http://tinyurl.com/gdlpe

      DuBois tells readers about her experiences with people who have
      lost loved ones. http://tinyurl.com/h73cz

      *** Signs: Gifts from dead? Scientists study question; many
      bereaved believe:
      Butterflies, rainbows, garage doors that go up and down for no
      reason -- these are the kinds of stories the living tell about signs
      they believe they have received from the dead.

      *** "I've found God," says man who cracked the genome:
      The scientist who led the team that cracked the human genome is to
      publish a book explaining why he now believes in the existence of
      God and is convinced that miracles are real.

      *** Dog makes cell phone call to save owner's life:
      Beagle receives award after dialing 911 when man suffered seizure.

      Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality
      by Dr. Dean Radin
      The latest scientific research shows that psychic phenomena is both
      real and widespread, and are an unavoidable consequence of the
      interconnected, entangled physical reality we live in. In this
      illuminating book, Radin shows how we know that psychic
      phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis are
      real, based on scientific evidence from thousands of controlled
      lab tests. Radin surveys the origins of this research and explores,
      among many topics, the collective premonitions of 9/11. He reveals
      the physical reality behind our uncanny telepathic experiences and
      intuitive hunches, and he debunks the skeptical myths surrounding
      them. "Entangled Minds" sets the stage for a rational, scientific
      understanding of psychic experience.
