    Living in a Quantum World.

    The article is about three years old, but it's very good: "ACCORDING TO STANDARD PHYSICS TEXTBOOKS, QUANTUM MECHANICS IS THE THEORY OF THE MICROSCOPIC world. It describes particles, atoms and molecules' but gives way to ordinary classical physics on the macroscopic scales of pears, people and...

    Recent paper on NDE memories

    Bear in mind, this doesn't necessarily mean that the experience was outside their heads. However, it does suggest that the experience was 'real'. http://journal.frontiersin.org/Journal/10.3389/fnhum.2014.00429/full

    Interesting ESP experiments.

    Make what you will of the site, it's not particularly credible. However, the scientist in question is presenting her work at this year's parapsychology conference in Concord. So enjoy. http://www.presidentialufo.com/component/content/article/39-articles-a-papers/546-a-nobel-prize-for-woo-woo
