"Glimpses of eternity" is Dr. Raymond Moody's latest book. In it, Moody describes a paranormal or supernatural phenomenon which he calls Shared-Death Experience. It's essentially a Near-Death Experience shared by more than one person.

According to Moody, the people standing around the deathbed of a loved one sometimes have the same near-death experience as the dying person. They even participate in the "life review" of the departed person. Sometimes, information about the dead person not previously known to the relatives is disclosed and later found to be accurate.

Moody clearly believes in the reality of these experiences. Indeed, he considers them to be the smoking gun evidence for the immortality of the soul. If more than one person experiences the same supernatural event, what other evidence do we want?

Of course, sceptics will frown and use their usual arguments: "it's all anecdotal evidence", "it could be folie á deux", "it can't be replicated in a laboratory".

Perhaps.

And then, perhaps not.

Personally, I don't claim to know whether humans have an immortal soul and where it goes after death, if we really have one. However, I respect Moody for being a fearless seeker, who boldly go where the "anecdotal evidence" seem to be pointing.

"Glimpses of eternity" might be the most sensational book yet by Dr. Raymond Moody. Purely anecdotal evidence? Or the truth at last? Read it and make up your own mind.

Glimpses of Eternity: An investigation into shared death experiences, by Raymond Moody, with Paul Perry, Rider (Random House), 2010, 192 ff.

By Howard Jones

Dr Raymond Moody is an American philosopher and practicing psychologist who has specialised in a study of afterlife experiences. This is one of several books on or around the same theme since publication of his best-seller, `Life After Life', in 1975.

This book, like the earlier one, is a collection of anecdotal descriptions. The difference here is that these accounts are not NDEs in the sense that the subjects themselves are close (in time) to their own (transient) death state. Instead, they are close spatially to others who are dying - at the bedside or even holding hands - and with whom usually, but not always, they have an empathic relationship. These accounts perhaps are closer to OBEs rather than NDEs, though there are many points of similarity between the two different kinds of accounts.

These descriptions of what is interpreted as being the afterlife are quite close to those we read from mediums, like Lisa Williams, when they communicate with the spirit world. Other books that provide evidence of discarnate survival and communication with the living - like those by Michael Tymn for example - tell very similar stories.

The validity of the accounts presented in these books by Moody is supported (though as Moody himself says, not proven) by the words of other mystics or prophets. `The Tibetan Book of the Dead', some of Plato's dialogues, Saint Paul's letter to the Corinthians, and the writings of the Swedish engineer turned mystic, Emanuel Swedenborg, all tell similar stories.

I have nearly finished reading it and must say I do enjoy the multitude of NDE`s . Quite a number of them in there . If read in conjunction with the New Testament the spiritual feel shines through better .

Read half of it. Just essentially a long string of anecdotes. I should hasten to add that, unlike "skeptics", I don't disparage anecdotes. These are interesting anecdotes. But what is required is an analysis as to what it all means.

As in court cases, a lone witness's testimony has to be trusted to a large degree.
Cynical people do sloppy research and have then smeared Dr Moody's reputation
with their assumptions.
Near Death Experiencers are on a par with inspired inventors, musicians and artists.
Normal reasoning based on physical evidence alone will gradually lead you away from truth.
An honest scientist will carefully research newly discovered truth even when it breaks the mould of his old notions.
Many predjudiced know-it-all 'scientists' have, on first hearing, immediately mocked new ideas.
Eventually the sheer volume of evidence or wealth of testimony begins to open their minds and cause them to doubt their old paradigms.

This is a fascinating follow up to Raymond Moody's 'Life After Life', published in 1975. He was a pioneer in collecting evidence, some very convincing, that the spirit goes on after death. This book tackles the interesting phenomena of 'shared death experiences', when relatives, or medical staff, from all over the world, witness similar unexplainable events at the moment of death, sometimes travelling with the departing soul for some of the way.
Raymond Moody is an intelligent, energetic seeker of truth, who confesses that it took an awful lot of evidence before his scepticism turned to belief. Catch him on Youtube and read this book and the original one with an open mind.
