Nice to hear from you, I couldn't have said it better myself Mark. The fact that Science has to respond to this is great but when the “Fine Tuning' problem arose Science had a rethink and then they came up with multiple universes, they just made them up really. But in the end they may have to face up to uncomfortable solutions, Dawkins couldn't refute the simulation concept, I wonder whether he has ever read Chuang Tsu' 'dream' allegories as the Chinese master was talking of the same concept, dream, illusion, simulation and of course Socrates' Cave allegory comes to mind aswell.
Dr J b Taylor said “What are we?”...... “We are the life force power of the universe” she could say this because she experienced it, she knew herself. You, Ray, myself and others have had similar experiences not because of an Brain Haemorrhage but a union brought about by our personal growth and Grace.
We follow what seem different paths but we all seek the same union, although we may use different methods and names.
I read a book by Dr Peter Fenwick some years ago, about 300 reported NDEs, he has noticed the different reports of these experiences for instance, Catholics generally saw the Virgin. I shan't say much about it, but leave a link to a interview where he covers most of his findings. See what you think.
