Back Goldfinch looking backwards

Endnote 2 to Mind-Matter Argument 2

Not much to report yet. There is much speculation. One doctor engaged in the multi-hospital studies apparently stated that as yet none of the patients in his hospital saw the target the study has posted in the various emergency rooms and no doubt ICU’s. That guy was clearly violating protocol, but the news item is highly uninformative as to context or detail.

A recent article indicates the international AWARE study is proceeding towards its targeted conclusion next year.  Dr. Sam Parnia, one of the project originators, mentions interesting results but provides no clues about whether a target has been identified by an out-of-body experiencer.  He said: “The evidence that is interesting to me is that, contrary to my training, the entity we call the human mind and consciousness appears to continue to exist during the early stage of death.” In another recent interview , Dr. Parnia stated that study results will be published in late 2011 or early 2012, at the earliest.
