I’m thinking…

…about knowledge.

Beginning on page 248 of “The Holographic Universe” by Michael Talbot, he writes of another part of the NDE (Near Death Experience) that possesses many holographic phenomenons.

In the chapter “Instantaneous Knowledge”, Dr. Joel Whitton, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto Medical School who also holds a degree in neurobiology, writes about findings gathered from his many subjects who had experienced NDE.

To summarize the findings, they all reported that they learned that pure, unconditional love as motivation for thoughts and actions in this life was one of two primary functions of life; the other being the gathering of information/knowledge. Subjects agree that these two functions are eternal.

“What form does the knowledge contained in the thought balls ** experienced during NDEs take? According to NDEers all forms of communication are used, sounds, moving hologram like images, even telepathy – a fact that Ring* believes demonstrates once again that the hereafter is “a world of existence where thought is king”.

The thoughtful reader may immediately wonder why the quest for learning is so important during life if we have access to all knowledge after we die? When asked this question NDEers replied that they weren’t certain, but felt strongly that it had something to do with the purpose of life and the ability of each individual to reach out and help others.”

Having experienced one OBE myself in the mid-80s, it is good for me, I think, to gently hold my 20’s and open my mind to discover eternal truth.

I invite you to obtain this book, ISBN 0-06-092258-3, and consider the information within as you travel your own personal path of discovery.

*(Dr. Kenneth Ring, president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies, as a psychologist with the University of Connecticut)

** Robert Monroe, former radio and television executive, who has experienced many OBEs (Out of Body Experiences), describes the instantaneous explosion of information as “thought balls”. These thought balls occur for OBEers and NDEers alike and are described by some that the information arrives in “chunks” that register instantaneously in one’s thoughts. In other words, rather than being strung out in a linear fashion like words in a sentence or scenes in a movie, all the facts, details, images and pieces of information burst into one’s awareness in an instant; one NDEer refers to the bursts of information as “bundles of thought”.
