Scientific Evidence
for the Afterlife

 

20 Nobel laureates have investigated, and accepted, the evidence for post-mortem survival of consciousness

 


 

Editor's Note: This article is part of a series; see the 8 link-icons below - each is best reviewed within a wide corpus of knowledge. My research, for 50 years, attempts to get at what's real and true. Concerning priority of the topics, there's a song-lyric, "love changes everything" - so it is with the scientific evidence of the afterlife; its reality changes everything.

Afterlife Bible Hell God
Jesus Christ Clear Thinking Satan Summary

 

 

"It is not so much what you will find when you come to this side of life as what you will bring with you... Sleep is the best definition of death I know anything about - just going to sleep unafraid to awake in a new and beautiful room, and to be satisfied... [on Earth] you are the apprentice to your own soul. Here you are the promoted individual... Bring all of your soul treasures - you will need them, your culture, your love of art, of music - all this you will use... Every want shall be satisfied. Material possessions you will not need... We are undisguised, for on our foreheads is the insignia of whatever we have gained in culture, love for humanity, charity, selflessness, energy and force, ambitions for the sake of others - all this is here waiting for us when we are given ... our Wage, whatever we have earned during our years of apprenticeship." Frederic W.H. Myers, Vanishing Night,  transmitted to Juliet S. Goodenow, 1923

 

Editor's note: After you've reviewed the 30 items below, you'll want to make special note of the article on Summerland.   

 

"There is a great body of evidence which, taken as a whole, absolutely and unqualifiedly proves the case for the afterlife... This evidence would be technically admissible in the Supreme Court of the United States, the House of Lords in England, the High Court of Australia, and in every civilized legal jurisdiction around the world." Victor Zammit, retired attorney of the Supreme Court of Australia

 

 

The “Hubble Deep Field” photo becomes a peering of 12 billion light-years into the primordial past. Nearly all 3000 objects in this image are galaxies, clusters of billions of stars. These cosmic lighthouses present themselves to the eye as close neighbors, but this seeming proximity, due to enormous viewing-distance, is only apparent, not real, with actual separation, typically, measured in millions of light-years. Dr. Myers, noted above, informs us that a favorite recreation in Summerland is that of space exploration. 

Editor's note: For some time I've been aware of physicists’ estimate of the universe’s 200 billion galaxies, each with an average of 100 billion stars (our own Milky Way has 400 billion stars). This strikes us as overwhelming enough, but recently I’ve learned that, in addition to these full-bodied galaxies, there are “dwarf galaxies” with a hardly-worth mentioning star population of only a few billion. And there are trillions of these “dwarf galaxies”! Trillions! - not just trillions of stars, but trillions of galaxies, each comprised of billions of stars!

A recent headline: “Ex-Pentagon UFO Chief: We May Not Be Alone.” The article offers assessment of witnessed spacecraft maneuvering in ways and at speeds currently outside the parameters of known science. All of which begs the question: among the trillions and trillions of stars out there, how many serve as home-planets of intelligent life? The afterlife reports (see below), some of which issue from scientists on the other side, often speak of a universe filled with life and intelligence.

Let us consider this: If only one in a million stars is orbited by a planet; and if only one in a million of these planets has given rise to life; and if only one in a million of life-bearing planets is home to intelligent life; then, across the universe, there are millions and millions of planets supporting intelligent life. Odds are, among this exceeding multitude, there are civilizations far older and far more sophisticated than our own. As Carl Sagan used to say, "Do you wanna take a ride?"

 

Spiral galaxy NGC 2841 resides a mere pebble’s toss from the Earth, 46 million light-years. It’s larger than our own galaxy with a diameter of 150,000 light-years (versus 100,000 for the Milky Way). In “The Wedding Song” we find Elenchus revealing that he’s arranged for a star to be named for the girl he loves. The certificate bears a message: “Dear Kairissi, it may be a long time before I can give this to you. I was not able to give you anything when we were young. Now it’s my wish to give you all things – one star at a time. Elenchus.” Is this not why God created stars?

Below you'll find 30 favorite examples of scientific experiments, next-world testimonies, mystic revelation, unexpected visits, studied opinion, and accumulated research over years, regarding post-mortem survival of human consciousness.

 

#1 Dr. Gary Schwartz: detecting the presence of light-radiating Spirit entities in a biophoton laboratory.

The following experiment, conducted by Professor Gary Schwartz, University of Arizona, is elegant in its simplicity, easy to understand, yet offers some of the most potent empirical evidence for the existence of an afterlife.

"What happened next I witnessed with my own two eyes. In watching hundreds of hours of outputs, I rarely saw photon sums above 50-75. I was now seeing a 173-unit photon, and it occurred shortly after I had [silently] asked [invisible Spirit entities] to make a big [display of light]."

#2 Dr. Gary Schwartz: testing the abilities of psychic-mediums under controlled laboratory conditions.

"Some of the mediums failed the test; some were so-so; but a few, such as John Edwardsucceeded amazingly and brilliantly - with the likelihood of pure chance orchestrating results in the realm of billions to one."

#3 The Scole Experiments: considered by many to be the most evidential affirming data for the existence of an afterlife. 

For five years, physicists, electrical engineers, psychologists, university professors, medical professionals, and others would observe and analyze an astounding panoply of psychic phenomena.

"I had the opportunity to take part in two sessions of the Scole Experimental Group in 1995 and 1996. My own observations, as well as later personal reports of my colleagues, left me convinced of the genuineness of the phenomena." Dr. Ernst Senkowski, Physicist

Over 100 items materialized during the five-year period - including various coins, jewelry, lockets, a silver thimble; but, my favorite: an "original" copy of the Daily Mail from 1944, printed on paper of that era, no longer being produced.

#4 Direct-Materialization Mediums:

Most people have heard of psychic-mediums, those with an ability to receive messages from the other side of life. But direct-materialization mediums offer much more. While exceedingly rare today, they might facilitate the actual bodily appearance of persons from the Spirit-world.

"I am your Betty! I kissed her lips, which were warm, soft, and natural; and she commenced to weep."

#5 Direct-Voice Mediums:

Direct-voice mediumship allows persons on the other side of life to audibly speak, such that, anyone near the medium will be able to hear their voices.

"I think I can safely say that I am the most tested medium this country has ever produced... I have been boxed up, tied up, sealed up, gagged, bound and held, and still the voices have come to speak their message of life eternal." Leslie Flint

“Here [in the ‘real world’], no one glories in being a leader. The first thing a person must learn here, if they are to progress, is to lose this idea of self-importance. Those who are really progressed on this side never, never, give that impression. I would say to you, above all things, if you want to discover truth, avoid men of power and position.” Elizabeth Fry

#7 The Cross-Correspondences:

This area of afterlife-research was designed and implemented by persons in the Spirit-world. Their purpose was to provide, what they hoped would be, unassailable evidence for the survival of human consciousness.

"In 1875, as young adults, they had agreed to marry; but before the wedding Mary died, having contracted typhus. Arthur, in grief, never married. From the other side, she initiated an effort to reach Arthur, which, according to Mary’s surviving family, displayed a certain note of desperation – rooted in something that Mary had failed to tell Arthur before she died."

#8 The Near-Death Experience.

Over 20 years ago, my first contact with afterlife evidence was the near-death experience (NDE). While I've discovered even more compelling confirmation since then, the NDE remains a very important area of research.

A popular rebuttal against the NDE by materialists is that of the oxygen-deprived dying-brain theory. But specialist scientists in this area, brain surgeons and cardiologists, say this idea is nonsense.

The most evidential NDEs, impossible to refute, that is, by any rational person, are the NDEs by those born blind but now able to see; little children who see things and know things outside of their cultural conditioning; shared NDEs by those who die together and see things together; and the NDEs of those who travel while out of the body and become privy to events and conversations later confirmed to have occurred.

#9 Cora Richmond, the most famous psychic-medium and one of the most famous women in the world of the latter 1800s. But today we ask, "Cora who?"

"At the urging of Mrs. Lincoln, President Lincoln and several congressmen were said to have attended Cora’s lectures in Washington, D.C. when she was still a teenager, and to have been much impressed with her. The abolition of slavery was one of the key themes in her lectures during those early years."

“My God! was I then really dead? How can I describe to you the emotion which swept through me, and which seemed to shake my whole being to its very center! How strange it seemed to be dead, and yet with such superabundant life! How mortals misapprehend the meaning of the word. To be dead means to be alive with a vitality earthly humanity does not know…"

#13 Dr. Rupert Sheldrake: the mind's epicenter is not found in the brain; therefore, consciousness is not extinguished, and continues on, when the physical body, along with the brain, dies. 

"I’m not confident memories are stored in brains. I think that brains are more like tuning devices, more like TV receivers than like video recorders. Now that’s really a scientific question, how is memory stored? It has religious implications because materialism says that memories are stored in brains. The brain decays at death, therefore, memories are wiped out at death. There’s no possibility of any kind of personal survival without memory."

#14 Automatic Writing:

The name of Paul Stookey [of "Peter, Paul, and Mary"] "does not appear as the author of The Wedding Song, either on the record or the sheet music. Neither does he receive any of the royalties - because, he says, after he prayed he was 'given' the song. All he was required to do was to allow the pencil to move across the page."

#15 Dr. & Mrs. Carl Wickland, a husband-wife medical team of trance-mediumship, for 40 years serving confused spirits who could not understand that they had died.

"Realize that this little Earth is only a grammar school. It is not a University, not even a High School; it is only the first lesson of life. Do not become hypnotized in any way by dogma, creed or belief, but find God within yourself and be free."

"The first thing I had to do was to conquer self ... selfishness. We must conquer that before we can do any work at all in the spirit world."

"Memories of [so-called] 'past lives' are caused by spirits that bring such thoughts and represent the lives they lived. A spirit impresses you with the experiences of its life and these are implanted in your mind as your own. You then think you remember your past. You make the mistake of taking this for the memory of former incarnations."

#16 Reincarnation On Trial: The Central Issue: Whose Memories Are They?

Charles Tweedale: "Proof of survival after death we have in abundance, but absolutely no proof of reincarnation as a general principle. Such proof, if it were attainable, would be the greatest calamity that ever befell mankind.”

Elizabeth Barrett: “My whole nature would cry aloud against that most pitiful result of the struggle here – a wrestling only for dust, and not for the crown [if there were no future state in which to love Robert]. What a resistless melancholy would fall upon me if I had such thoughts! ... Dreary and ghastly, it would be! I should not have strength to love you, I think, if I had such a miserable creed. And for life itself … would it be worth holding on such terms ... not worth playing to an end.”

#17 Silver Birch: a 3000 year-old afterlife-entity channels his wisdom:

"Those whom the natural law has joined by love can never be sundered, in your world or mine... the real love ... only comes once to each man or woman ... the real love is so magnetic, so overwhelming in its attraction, that it must find itself and claim itself, when once you have got rid of the imperfections of the Earth, which were deterrents to recognition." 

"The whole purpose of earthly life is to awaken the dormant slumbering souls to the reality of their existence. Your world is full of living sleepwalkers who go through the day's activities in a dream."

#18 Andrew Jackson Davis: writer, lecturer, well-known psychic-medium of the 19th century, a spiritual counselor to Abraham Lincoln:

"[The true, spiritual] marriage is the blending, the entrance, of two souls, each into the other, thus making of two, one perfect being. Every individual is born married; that is, every male and female, affinity with affinity, has a true and eternal companion. Each will become a messiah and salvation to the other; each is designed to work for the spiritual development of the other."

#19 Dr. Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

"This is the best survey of real evidence for the existence of psychic phenomena ever compiled. Clear, comprehensive, engaging, and convincing, it provides hard facts, not hazy opinions. It is a bastion of substance in a sea of credulous psi publications that separates the real science of parapsychology from the morass of [fraudulent claimants] who have unfairly caused parapsychologists to become pariahs to their colleagues in the more conventional sciences." Michael Epstein, Ph.D

Dr. Dean Radin lists many dozens of peer-reviewed, scientific journal articles, accessible via link icon herein, featuring experiments/research which support the reality of the afterlife. He comments that "hundreds or thousands" of these could be offered.

"Before us the countryside reached out in a seemingly unending prospect. In another direction I could clearly perceive what had all the appearance of a city of stately buildings… each of which was surrounded with magnificent gardens and trees, with here and there pools of glittering water, clear as crystal… Here were fine broad thoroughfares of emerald green lawns in perfect cultivation... This city was devoted to the pursuit of learning, to the study and practice of the arts... It was exclusive to none, but free for all to enjoy with equal right."

#21 Kahlil Gibran, The Beloved; sacred eros as catalyst to spiritual evolvement.

"For Gibran, romantic love is a means - perhaps the best means - to self-realization, without which one is less than a full person... love is a force, pre-existent, which we may tap into with the trigger - the beloved."

"The first sight of the beloved is like the spirit that moved on the face of the waters, from which flowed forth heavens and the earth. The first sight of life's companion echoes God's words, Let there be... It is the beginning of magical tremblings that separate the lovers from the world of space and dimensions and carry them to the world of revelation and dreams."

#22 Angel Encounters

"It seemed to me that mere minutes had passed when I heard a voice saying, "I just want you to know everything is gonna be ok." Looking to my right, I was surprised to see a fisherman standing there, within arm's reach of me. His super-deluxe 3-tier tackle box was wide open, and his line was already in the water ... How could he have walked the distance from the parking lot to halfway across a quarter-mile bridge, open a large tackle box, and have his line already in the water, all without making a sound!"

#23 Emanuel Swedenborg, one of the most famous men of the 18th century: statesman, physicist, musician, inventor, engineer - and mystic-seer of Heaven, whose visions and writings would influence intelligentsia for the next hundred years.

"[Romantic-spiritual] love is peculiar to man because only he [of the animal kingdom] can become spiritual, of elevating his intellect above his natural loves … no other animal can do this … all in the heavens are associated according to the affinities and relationships of love …

"There is provided in heaven a marriage with one whose soul inclines to mutual union with the soul of another, so that they no longer wish to be two lives, but One … the delights of [romantic-spiritual] love are superior to all other delights in heaven and in the world

"Each married partner becomes continually a more interior spiritual person; for that love opens the interiors of their minds; and as these are opened, a man becomes more a man, woman becomes more a woman."

#24 Dr. Frederic Myers, via medium Juliet Goodenow, speaks from the afterlife:

"[The true] marriage is the uniting of Twin Souls. This is the only spiritual marriage and the only marriage that survives bodily death.

"There shall be no marriage ceremony in Heaven - because Nature itself is the officiating minister, uniting souls destined to be one - each person has its own Twin Soul. Cohesion attracts and unites them, as the dawn blends into the day."

In these Sacred Two, the mesmerized crowd witnesses a marriage of Love and Wisdom. Together, these Twins will lead many to a higher perspective. Everyone will want what they have, will desire to be like them - and their educative mission begins today, their wedding day, by living and displaying the cosmic meaning of "made in the image."

Why teaching-examples of authentic romantic love are included in this roster of afterlife evidence.

#25 Dr. Amit Goswami, Quantum Physicist, addresses what has been called "the only mystery" of science.

"Consciousness is the ground of all being" because consciousness collapses wave-forms, transforming them into particles, and thereby draws from Potentia a material form to manifest in the world.

All things of the universe exist within consciousness - not, consciousness as just another element within the universe.

As consciousness is necessary to precipitate matter, such process becomes evidence for the existence of a Great Consciousness, the original superintending awareness of the cosmos.

#26 Eckhart Tolle and the True Self.

 Consciousness - which, as Goswami instructs us, gives material form to the universe - also provides essence of the True Self.

The implications are utterly profound and far-reaching. No subject could be more important; because if we fail to come into our own, fall short of accessing who we really are, we'll be of little use to ourselves or others.

Everything - one's entire future, all that we hope to do, accomplish, and possess - hinges upon first coming alive.

#27 A 3500 year-old afterlife-entity, formerly an ancient Egyptian priest, speaks of the power of God's love - which does not employ brute force but patiently and gently seeks to open hearts and minds, thereby effecting permanent change at the deepest levels of being.

"Let our hearts be open to sorrow and suffering. As we do, our compassion for suffering ones will draw them to us; and, by this means, they will be drawn to God...

"It is entirely unfortunate, for any who attempt to serve the disenfranchised, not to understand that unless the spiritually insane find themselves wanting to be like their teachers, to love their teachers, no good can come from any outreach effort."

While this area of afterlife evidence is in its infancy, progress is being made. Dr. Gary E. Schwartz of the University of Arizona is working on producing an electronic device which will one day allow us to contact departed loved ones as easily as one might speak to someone across the country.

Dr. Schwartz tells us that his "research demonstrates the feasibility of future electronic communication with spirits."

 Attorney Victor Zammit answers Stephen Hawking 

 

Victor Zammit

Stephen Hawking

 
 
Stephen Hawking, May 16, 2011, The Guardian:
 
"British scientist Stephen Hawking has branded heaven a fairy story... 'I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark' ... in his 2010 book The Grand Design he said a deity no longer has any place in theories on the creation of the universe in the light of a series of developments in physics."
 
Attorney Victor Zammit responds:
 
"Professor Hawking said this week in an interview with the English Guardian newspaper that our brains are like computers. Then he said, 'There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.' I say 'put up or shut up, Professor.' He made an a priori conclusion, a decision without first investigating the scientific evidence for the afterlife. But other ... scientists, physicists, chemists, and biologists scientifically examined the afterlife" and have accepted the evidence.
 
Editor’s note: “a priori” literally means “that which is before”; that is, before inductive reasoning, before a fact-gathering analysis. An “a priori conclusion” is a judgment made without evidence or research; a good word as synonym for “a priori conclusion” might be “prejudice.”

Nobel laureate Dr. Brian Josephson, Times Higher Education Supplement, 12 Aug. 1994: "For the last six weeks, BBC2 TV has been running a series called Heretic, detailing the responses of the scientific community to ideas generally considered unacceptable by scientists, and the treatment given to those advocating such ideas... In every case a similar story unfolded: dismissal of the claims as being nonsense or impossible, generally without any serious attempt to look at the evidence or the arguments; the non-materialisation of the honours, promotions, invitations to give public lectures and so on that such individuals might have been expected to receive given their past achievements; violent attacks by other scientists; and, for some, demotion or withdrawal of research facilities."

MICHAEL ROLL
British political activist against censorship
of the scientific evidence for the afterlife
 
 
 
Michael Roll is an activist afterlife-researcher with whom I've had the privilege of communicating several times. Michael regularly sends information to British MPs and other influential individuals in an effort to stop the suppression of the scientific evidence for the afterlife. His efforts have been instrumental in changing British censorship laws.
 
The following are excerpts from letters I've received from Michael:

You will see that a great deal has happened on the scientific front since I did my first radio broadcast in the London area on November 3, 1988.

At this time it was against the radio codes to talk about life after death in England in a serious scientific manner. In England the Church and the State are still established, and our Queen is head of the Anglo-Catholic Church.

However, I did manage to get the Radio Authority to remove these clauses against free speech in February 1994. I found this out when the Bristol radio presenter Dave Barrett telephoned me to say that the radio station had just had a memo from the Radio Authority. He said, “Mike, you have won.” Lord Chalfont, the chairman of the Radio Authority at the time, did not bother to tell me.

I also managed to get the Royal Navy to remove the First Article of War. When my son entered Dartmouth College a sinister card was thrust into his hand. In effect it said either you agree to indoctrinate the ranks under you with the Christian religion or you can forget any promotion in the Royal Navy.

I could then understand what happened to me in 1956 when I did national service in the Royal Navy. Religious services were compulsory. When my son’s ship HMS Illustrious invited families on board for a short cruise there was I pipe that said “A religious service is about to take part on the Quarter Deck.” I went along to see how many would turn up. About ten out of a thousand people on board.

We have to fight for freedom, it is not easily obtained. I have it easy compared to others in the past. In 1600 the scientist Giordano Bruno was arrested by the Roman Catholic Church. He was tortured by the priests, forcing him to renounce his findings. He spat in the faces of the priests. He was burnt at the stake while still alive.

This suppressed scientific case for survival after death is all set out on the website of The Campaign for Philosophical Freedom: www.scsad.afterlifeinstitute.org

Exposing this appalling deception of the British people must go right across party lines. Discoveries in physics belong to every man, woman and child on Earth. It is just too bad if they upset the Pope and Professor Stephen Hawking. Hawking actually went to see the Pope. On his return, at a press conference that was televised, a journalist asked Hawking what the Pope said to him. This was Hawking’s reply:

“The Pope said to me that he did not care what I did in science just as long as I never encroached on his subject, life after death.”

I asked Michael, "Was this reported in the popular press? How did the journalist make this known?"

Wayne, I was in the right place at the right time. I was at home watching lunchtime TV news. The cameras were at the press conference. I am sure it was cut after this. I did not see it in the evening news. As far as I know it was not reported in the press. Don’t forget the Telegraph, for example, is owned by Roman Catholic brothers [as opposed to] The Times owned by born-again Christian Rupert Murdoch.

[I gave an interview on Malta TV.] Sadly, Lou Bondi, who interviewed me, got the sack. I think we got a bit too close to the truth in a Roman Catholic country. Understandably, the priests are not keen to lose their lucrative monopoly on the life-after-death industry.

[It's as Brian Josephson said:] “It’s hard to change how people think. People have vested interests, and their projects and reputations would be threatened if certain things were shown to be true.” Professor Brian D. Josephson, Nobel Laureate for physics, Mind-Matter Unification Project at Cambridge University. Interview in the New Scientist on 9 December, 2006.

How Materialists Skew the Evidence for the Afterlife

"So how does skeptic Susan Blackmore reconcile the fact of seven successful experiments out of twenty-one experiments with her often-repeated claim that her own research led her to become a skeptic? Simple: as Dr. R. Berger pointed out, Blackmore applied a double standard to her experiments. When her experiments seemed to show evidence of psi, the results were dismissed as due to flaws of the experiments. But when the results did not seem to show evidence of psi, she simply ignored the quality of the study." Chris Carter, Science & Psychic Phenomena: The Fall of the House of Skeptics 

 

opposition froths at the mouth: Victor Zammit reports on scurrilous attacks against Dr. Amit Goswami by materialists:


First TED was seen to be openly censoring Drs. Sheldrake and Hancock and then academic opposition to Dr. Amit Goswami. Amit assures us these new developments make it apparent we have scientific materialism 'on the run'.”

A filmmaker writes: "A dean of the science department literally frothed at the mouth yelling at us - 'Why are you interested in what HE has to say, all this mumbo jumbo about consciousness being the ground of being is nonsense, not science!!' He was truly bent out of shape that we were there to interview Amit Goswami and not himself about the cutting edge of research that day.'

Then there was the unique experience of Dr. Goswami’s Wikipedia page being pulled – essentially by one adamant voice arguing that although he is a popular author numerous times over, stars in a film made about his concepts and ideas, was in What The Bleep Do We Know? – (the 5th largest grossing documentary of all time) and… literally wrote the university textbooks on quantum physics; still, this person argued his irrelevance effectively removing Dr. Goswami’s Wikipedia page.

Editor's note: see Dr. Sheldrake's confrontation with TED and Wikipedia in the "Evolution" article.
