Dr. Eben Alexander’s Tells of Near Death in ‘Proof of Heaven’ – NYTimes.com

An interesting account of Dr. Eben Alexander, a former neurosurgeon, and his near death religious experience. A vivid account, but not without controversy as he shares his experience in his book, Proof of Heaven. Quote:

“My own experience,” Dr. [Martin] Samuels added, “is that we all live in virtual reality, and the brain is the final arbiter. The fact that he is a neurosurgeon is no more relevant than if he was a plumber.”

Dr. Alexander shrugs off such analysis. He still hopes to tour “major medical centers and hospices and nursing homes,” he said, to relate his experience in distinctly medical environments.

His messages to those who deal with dying is one of relief. “Our spirit is not dependent on the brain or body,” he said. “It is eternal, and no one has one sentence worth of hard evidence that it isn’t.”
