This book presents 104 reliable, often firsthand accounts of
perceptions during NDEs that were later verified as accurate by
independent sources. These near-death experiencers were everyday people
from all over the world—many of whom were clinically dead, unable to
see or hear, and yet able to perceive new vistas of a world beyond the
senses and even beyond death.
This English edition was translated from Dutch. Robert and Suzanne
suggested a number of the new cases, helped with the editing of the
book and wrote the foreword to this edition.

2019 study "NDE
Visions of the World's Future" -- We are seeking NDEr
participants in a study:

that were accurately predicted by near-death experiencers (NDErs); (2)
identify similarities in future world events received by different
NDErs; and (3) identify what significance the visions of future world
events have for NDErs.

of George Ritchie's
of the out-of-body experience (OBE) portion of his near-death
experience (NDE), including locating the all-night cafe in Vicksburg
and the hospital ward building at Camp Barkeley near Abilene
which explores the idea that a phantom limb could have the same
properties as the self-conscious mind: an objective spatial reality,
that has a subtle interaction with physical objects and a subtle
interaction with another person's body
Collecting cases of apparent
physical interaction during NDE OBE:
reports of interactions with physical processes and objects, including
interactions with another person's body and "merging" with another

cases that involve physical interactions
during the OBE phase of the NDE. Interactions might include
(1) light (like seeing a light bulb or readout from a
monitor), (2) sound (like hearing lights humming, monitors
beeping), (3) smells or tastes, (4) touch
(like sensations when passing through a physical object), (5)
body of another person (like sensations in touching or passing through
a person), (6) the body of another person where your touch appeared to
be "felt" (when touching the person, the person
“felt” it in some way),
(7) "merging" with another person (where you could see and
with their eyes and ears), or (8) anything resembling these kinds of
Phantom limb cases
involving (1) sensing the touch of another person, including massage
over your phantom limb, (2) being able to feel an object when you touch
it with your phantom, (3) touching another person with your phantom
which they can feel, (4) relief of phantom limb pain due to Therapeutic
Touch or other type of energetic work on your phantom, or (5) seeing
your phantom limb as a faint glow.
