TMI is proud to call Dr Eben Alexander a friend and we were doubly excited to see his story featured on "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman" on the Science Channel. Dr Alexander's story is particularly powerful for a lot of people who might think that NDEs are fodder for hippies and New Age types because Dr. Alexander comes at this very personal experience from the perspective of a Neurosurgeon. Here's his story:
Dr. Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE), in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that – completely!
He was shocked to find the hyper-reality of that spiritual realm, which many had reported in NDEs. He has spent the last thirty months reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary scientific understanding. His spiritual experience is totally consistent with the leading edges of scientific understanding today.
Together, science and spirituality will thrive in a symbiosis offering the most profound insight into fundamental Truth, yielding unimaginable power. The keystone is in global progression of individual conscious awakening.
