COMMENTARY: POPE'S ADVISOR REPLIES
TO MY BOOK I have been asked whether the Pope
(then Pope John Paul, picture below) ever replied to my
open letter to him. The answer is no, he did not.
However I sent a copy of an earlier version of the book
A LAWYER PRESENTS THE CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE through someone
I knew at the time - a Jesuit priest, Fr. Peter Little
from N. Sydney. A couple of months later he said he had
received a succinct reply from Pope John Paul's advisors
about the book, words to the effect:"this New Age
writer does not mention God ...".
IRRELEVANT COMMENT? I
found this a very strange comment. First, writing about
the existence of God would be a different book with different
evidence. There are many atheists who accept the afterlife
but do not accept the idea of the human-like God of the
Old Testament. Secondly, I do not regard myself as a 'New
Age writer'. I am a lawyer who investigated the evidence
for the afterlife. One would have thought that the Pope
and his advisors would have found the subject of interest
and would respond more intelligently - and more diplomatically.
THE CONCLUSION OF 'CALLING EARTH'
Producer of this brilliant video, Dan
so much for mentioning my documentary in your latest newsletter.
To bring you up to date: please note that the completed
version is now up on Vimeo at the same link,
I'm currently working on a transcript that may be used
by some folks in Poland and Brazil to produce translations
for subtitled foreign-language versions. I'll keep you
posted about these as they become available."
"YOU DON'T DIE GLEN...WE DON'T DIE"
This is what a 'being of light'
told a very surprised Vietnam Veteran, Glen Brimer,
during his NDE. Glen talks about the huge problem he
later had integrating the overwhelming love he experienced
for every living thing during his NDE with the brutal
reality of warfare.
NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE OF HOLLYWOOD ACTOR JANE SEYMOUR
When actress Jane Seymour was 36 years of age, she had
a severe case of the flu and was given an injection of
penicillin. She suffered an allergic reaction which led
to a near-death experience."I literally left my body.
I had this feeling that I could see myself on the bed,
with people grouped around me. I remember them all trying
to resuscitate me. I was above them, in the corner of
the room looking down. I saw people putting needles in
me, trying to hold me down, doing things. I remember my
whole life flashing before my eyes, but I wasn't thinking
about winning Emmys or anything like that. The only thing
I cared about was that I wanted to live because I did
not want anyone else looking after my children. I was
floating up there thinking, "No, I don't want to
die. I'm not ready to leave my kids." And that was
when I said to God, "If you're there, God, if you
really exist and I survive, I will never take your name
in vain again." Although I believe that I "died"
for about thirty seconds, I can remember pleading with
the doctor to bring me back. I was determined I wasn't
going to die."
Then Jane suddenly found herself back in her body.
THE CHESS GAME FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE Vernon
Neppe, MD, PhD, FRSSAf, is a neuropsychiatrist based in
Seattle. Here he provides a detailed analysis of a chess
match played between a living grandmaster, Victor Korchnoi
and an ostensible deceased grandmaster, Géza Maróczy,
whose moves were communicated through a spiritualist medium
using automatic writing. Neppe argues that this is a strong
case supporting the hypothesis of survival of consciousness
after death. It combines an unusual degree of accurate
information with a high level of chess skill, plus aspects
