I always look forward to Sarah Veale’s weekly post Mysteria Misc. Maxima link roundup on her Invocatio blog. Today i especially enjoyed the article from the Canadian online news website called MacLean’s written by Brian Bethune called

Why so many people–including scientists–suddenly believe in an afterlife

Some of the NDE’s (near death experiences) in this story are pretty amazing as the debate wages on whether these experiences are spiritual or neurological chemical reactions of a dying brain. Enjoy!

    • Being an agnostic on soul survival, the jury remains out for me. But i think we have many levels of spirit and souls, some universal, some personal, some animal life energy. And i think our own Will determines a lot whether we survive to reincarnate or haunt or even become an incubus/succubus, just for the fun of it ;)

  1. It’s a really interesting subject, I was reading something recently that said Quantum Physics has some theory about a higher consciousness existing at the quantum level and that it could exist independently of the body….fascinating. (I suppose we will all find out sooner or later though!).

      • I think Carl Sagan said something about everyone effectively being made of stardust or star-stuff because the cosmos recycles everything so every atom of everything in it has existed since the beginning of the cosmos and will continue to exist until the ‘end’ – just not necessarily in the same form! (He probably said it a lot more concisely though!).
