I've spoken with several researchers and experiencers in various areas of extended/enhanced consciousness over the first year of my research blog. The main area has been NDEs (there's simply more people willing to talk about them than in most other experiences), but have also touched upon OBEs, mediumship, and other like topics. I recently had the opportunity to interview someone more skeptical to the subjects, needless to say I might refrain from doing so in the future, especially if their audience are anything like the one I came across. I'm not interested in closed-mindedness on either side of the fence to these subjects and have found such cases on both. My aim is to look at the evidence and follow it wherever it leads, and hopefully provide some of that evidence to whoever follows me. I'm curious to hear of current research being done in these fields and what the current evidence suggests. To me there is a very strong case for continuation of consciousness after death (my main area of focus) and of some "spiritual" nature that as of yet we don't understand.
