Another fellow I knew well, whom David also quotes in his book, had this same experience and told me it was like “being plugged into a cosmic computer.”

David, too, quotes a number of such cases in his book.  Here are some of his own examples:

The Light welcomed me; The Light absorbed me into The Light. So I was part of The Light. Once I was in The Light, I knew everything The Light knew. I knew all about the universe. I knew everything about flowers, plants, asteroids, suns, novas — everything. I didn’t have a question for The Light. Why? Because I knew all the answers. I had nothing to ask. I was given total and absolute knowledge about ALL things instantaneously! I marveled in ecstasy that I knew everything about everything there was to know in the universe right then and there. It was incredibly energizing to comprehend all that power, from knowledge about physics, astronomy, psychology, medicine, agriculture, meteorology, chemistry — EVERYTHING about how the physical and spiritual worlds operate. I felt electrifying elation, being “on top of the world”, and so joyful to possess ultimate Truth.

I felt electrifying elation, being “on top of the world”, and so joyful to possess ultimate Truth.

I was just there, floating in this pure ecstasy, knowing to the depths of my being everything I had just heard and witnessed. Suddenly, I was being downloaded with information about every question I had ever had. I have always been interested in science, physics, biology, human relations, spirituality, religion, etc. In one instant, I understood all there was to know. I particularly remember understanding all about how electricity works, then physics, then human relationships.

Although most NDErs retain only their memory of this universal knowledge, they typically cannot access it when they return to their body. And yet, some astonishing aftereffects of this experience can and do occur.

For example, Tom Sawyer, who was not well educated and spent his entire working life operating bulldozers and other heavy earth-moving equipment, returned with a prodigious knowledge about quantum physics and well known physicists such as Max Planck whose name was completely unfamiliar to him previously. (All this is described at length in Heading Toward Omega.)

And the man who told me that he felt he had plugged into a cosmic computer, is cited by David in this same context:

[After his NDE] At twenty-six, I started buying books and learning languages. First French, then Spanish. After two semesters, I started on Don Quixote and read Voltaire’s Philosophical Letters. Then, I returned to Portuguese [he had previously lived in Brazil]. At twenty-eight, I studied history and philosophy … I went through most of them. They were on history, philosophy, other religions, astronomy, physics, and archeology. Excepting masterworks and classics, I don’t read fiction anymore. At twenty-nine, I began excursions into particle physics and electronics. At thirty-two, I started designing oscillators and low-noise amplifiers. One of them is in an orbiting satellite. At thirty-six, I started designing microprocessors. I’m forty-two now. As a professional programmer, I write about 40,000 lines of C-language a year.

And other NDErs return with entirely new gifts and abilities, such as remarkable musical and artistic talents, though that is a story for another time. For now it is enough to note that when one is ushered, even temporarily, into the house of death, all knowledge can be revealed that can have a lasting effect on one’s life. Even knowing that can and usually does evoke a sense of wonder in the rest of us.

These are merely a few illustrative quotes from David’s book. Remember there are 500 of them in all! The book is really a treasury of NDE wisdom and insights. I can’t recommend this book highly enough to any of you who are drawn to wanting to learn more about these experiences so as to enhance your own spiritual life. And it can be yours for the proverbial song. What are you waiting for?

But if you’re not a reader, or even if you are, I have something else of David’s to offer you. You may want to visit a couple of his websites. Here are two that are particularly relevant to David’s books.

********************

I hope in the coming months to be able to introduce you to more of my NDE researcher friends – new ones whose names most of you probably will be unfamiliar with, but whom you will surely be keen to learn about.

So I begin and hope to continue with my new NDE career to sing the praises of others before returning to watch more of the Australian Open….
