The Self Does Not Die: 104 Cases of Verified Paranormal Phenomena from Near-Death Experiences — Rudolf Smit, 2016 IANDS Conference

Claims of paranormal phenomena/experiences during Near-Death Experiences are not just purely subjective. There are cases of NDE in which a third party (partner, relative, friend or medical professional) directly confirms these claims, rather than only through the near-death experiencers (NDErs) themselves. Skeptics have tried to debunk such strong cases but they have failed.

This presentation introduces the new English translation, The Self Does Not Die, of the earlier Dutch book which is a compilation, now of 104 such cases of verified paranormal phenomena during NDEs. The book is a new publication of IANDS.

  2. Mr.Smit and Dr.Grayson.. I hope this message finds you.. My Daughter had a NDE experience in the ICU before passing away and brought back physical proof. She went to a place of Hell and back and developed a huge burn on her forearm. Seven years later I noticed the picture of the burn was in the form of a demon.. So much more to the story that I wrote a book about it as well. It's titled Hell is also for real. It's a short story, only 60 pages. Please check it out. It's available on Amazon and ebooks.. Please help me share my Daughters story..
    Sincerely Deanna Riley

  3. I do not personally know anyone that has experienced an NDE and I know a lot of people. Neither does anyone I know. When I DO see videos about NDE's there is almost always a link to a book they are selling. There is a great old tree outside my house. It is over 200 years old. I compare that tree to earth and the leaves to people. The leaves fall to the ground and dry up and are absorbed into the soil. Do the nutrients from these leaves get absorbed into the roots of the tree? Probably. When those nutrients get recycled they can create new branches as well as new leaves or maybe a little of both but the nutrients from the leaves do not get to choose which. They can also wash away and become part of a flower down the street or a different tree or be absorbed into the grass on someone's lawn or a little of each or all of one. I believe it is the same with us. We die and we get absorbed into the one and where we end up is completely random and unimportant to the one. It only matters to us as we try to cling to the possibility of immortality in any form possible.

  4. It's hard to change our mindset from what we were taught growing up. Sure we can find something that explains the same experience. But Millions of people have a very similar experience all over the world? Denying what is obvious only changes the way you choose to live. Time to wake up or stay asleep.

  5. I like these two NDE cases because you get to hear from the surgeons who are shocked as they confirm they must have been floating above them so great news NDE's are real,

    I like these two reincarnation stories from the 1980's, because there is a proper and though investigations, Nicola got the family name and the house where she used to live right and she said she was a boy, which after checking the church records and census all confirmed she was telling the truth. The first one is a short 5 minute video.,

    The second one is an experiment into reincarnation with independent witnesses and a proper investigation, the public didn't use the internet until 1991, like everything the old ones are the best, the recollection of buildings, places, roads and events are incredible, remember they are in a different Country they haven't visited before. They use hypnotic regression on 4 normal random women in Australia and then investigated what they said by flying them over to England, France and Germany to prove they had lived before, 3 out of 4 was really strong, well worth watching you will believe in reincarnation after watching, lol.

    With the 1000's of NDE and Reincarnation cases being reported the evidence of an afterlife seems to be growing, although if they kick me out of Heaven to come back to this planet they will have to drag me out kicking and screaming, lol, but if I can have maybe a 200/300 year rest in Heaven I suppose it would be nice to return to see how we have evolved on Earth if we haven't destroyed it by then. Enjoy the video's

  6. He wasnt so nice on astrologers-he himself was one- but as recente studies have shown the astrology tests were a sham and full of errors,which makes me wonder about his judgement when tsting things like NDEs

  7. 35:00 “Science advances one funeral at a time” paraphrasing Max Planck quote: "A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."

  8. Fine presentation, Mr Smit.
    Indeed the skeptics have the word in the media, at least also here in Belgium. Any debate is always between 'organised religion' vs 'reductionist science', so sad and frustrating to have to watch. Everything else is denied, ignored, not known or ridiculed.
    I had no idea there is an IANDS Belgium.
