Welcome, noble viewers, to Science and Spirituality on Supreme Master Television for the first in a three part series on near death experiences or NDEs. For many years NDEs were not seriously examined or openly discussed by the scientific community. Recently however, thanks to a growing number of scientific studies and research efforts, thousands of NDE accounts have been formally documented worldwide.

For more than 10 years Dr. Jeffrey Long, a radiation oncologist from Louisiana, USA, has been at the forefront of this movement and has contributed immensely to the advancement of near death experience research.

A near-death experience may be defined as two components— being near-death, and having an experience. The near-death part means that the person is so physically compromised from some accident or illness that they’re generally unconscious and may even be clinically dead. They’re so physically compromised that if they don’t improve physically, they will suffer irreversible permanent death. And yet at that time, when they’re unconscious and should have no possibility of a remembered conscious event during that period, they do have the experience part of a near-death experience.

Dr. Long’s comprehensive collection of surveys and evidence of near death experiences from across the globe is presented in a recently published book he co-authored entitled, Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences.

The non-profit Near Death Experience Research Foundation was founded by Dr. Long and his wife in 1998 and serves as a platform for people from all walks of life to share their personal NDE stories with the public by submitting them online at the Foundation’s website.

A 100-item questionnaire is used to screen all submissions to assure only those who have truly undergone a near death experience have their story recorded by the Foundation. The website contains the largest known database in the world of individual NDE accounts. Let us now learn more about near death experiences from Dr. Long.

How many people actually have a near-death experience?

A Gallup Poll published in 1982 estimated that perhaps as much as five percent of the population has had a near-death experience.

Other studies indicate that of those people that have a close brush with death, about 10 to 20% will have a near-death experience.

Is that here in the U.S.A. or worldwide?

The concept of about five percent of the population having a near-death experience actually comes from several different surveys around the world - United States, Germany, and Australia specifically - and that’s felt to be approximately accurate. The concept that about 10 to 20% of people facing a life-threatening event will have a near-death experience comes from studies all around the world.

Reports of near death experiences often describe entering into a blissful state and seeing beautiful Heavenly realms. Nearly all of those who were previously afraid to die no longer have such a fear after undergoing a NDE.

No two near-death experiences are identical if you study large numbers of near-death experiences, and I have, I’ve studied over 1,300. I’ve seen what other researchers have seen and that is, that there are elements consistently observed in near-death experiences. A typical, detailed near-death experience would involve first what’s called the out-of-body experience. Consciousness separates from the body and goes above the body. They can often from that vantage point see below them their frantic resuscitation efforts.

One of the most common elements seen during a near-death experience are profoundly positive emotions. People feel intense love, compassion, connectiveness, oneness. They really feel that even though they’re in a mystical, unearthly realm, that realm is truly home. In addition to that, very often in these unearthly realms, they may come to believe that they have, if you will, universal knowledge.

They say, “Ah hah! I understand how the universe works, my role in it and, what’s going on.” – knowledge beyond anything we could possibly know here on Earth. Unfortunately, essentially always, they’re not allowed to retain any of that knowledge, but those are certainly some very interesting near-death experiences that do describe that. The impact of personally experiencing a near-death experience is profound. People that have are generally changed and substantially changed, and the changes they go through last the rest of their life.

What we’ve observed is that the people having a near-death experience, over time, they almost always believe that there’s life after death. Well of course they do. They believe they personally experienced it. They almost never fear death anymore because they have a strong awareness, even an understanding, about life after death. Other aftereffects may include decreased materialism.

They have a much more interest in loving relationships with other people. These tend to be people that if they were in jobs where they had to compromise their moral principles, such as, sales jobs that at any cost (they must sell), they may find that after their near-death experience, that’s not a good match.

And commonly near-death experiencers will change professions and go into the healing professions or professions in where they can manifest their newfound or increased ability and desire to interact lovingly with their fellow human beings.

After this brief pause, we will continue our intriguing interview with Dr. Jeffrey Long. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television.

Welcome back to Science and Spirituality on Supreme Master Television, featuring an interview with a prominent researcher of near death experiences, Dr. Jeffery Long of the USA. Over a thousand near death experiencers, from all age groups, races, and religious backgrounds have documented their stories online at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation website.

Regardless of the variations in demographic profiles of these individuals, Dr. Long has discerned nine common themes from these recorded experiences. He says that these similarities constitute nine lines of evidence that, taken together, are conclusive proof of the existence of an afterlife. As he points out, “No physiological or psychological explanation of NDEs can account for what is observed in NDEs.”

Some of the remarkable commonalities between reported near death experiences include meeting deceased relatives, out-of-body experiences, and total consciousness while under general anesthesia.

And also you spoke about the volume of the near-death experiences we’re talking about and the consistency of the stories.

Yes, a basic scientific principle is, that which is real is consistently observed. So you would expect if near-death experiences were real, you would consistently observe elements, not only among the over 1,300 I studied, but you would also expect that consistency of what goes on during near-death experiences from what all the other researchers are seeing in the thousands of other near-death experiences that have been reported.

From extensive review of the scholarly literature and looking over what other researchers are seeing and having studied near-death experiences as I have, what we’re observing in near-death experiences is consistently observed. And that consistency runs deep. We see the same consistency in the near-death experience among very small children.

We see the same near-death experiences all around the world. It’s as if it doesn’t make any difference if you are a Hindu in India, a Muslim in Egypt, or a Christian in the United States, the similarity of the elements of near-death experience worldwide is striking.

Over the past five or 10 years there has been more and more scholarly research published, and that’s research published in some of the most prestigious scientific and medical journals in the world.

And I think perhaps as a result of that research or perhaps scientists and physicians asking people that they know, if they personally perhaps have experienced a near-death experience, I think for a variety of reasons, today we’re having more open-mindedness among scientists and physicians about the reality of near-death experiences than we’ve ever seen before.

As an overview, about 45% of people have an out-of-body experience in the sense that they see ongoing earthly events at a time they’re unconscious or even clinically dead. That’s called the out-of-body experience component of the near-death experience and it’s typically the first element that’s observed.

As part of my study, I asked, “Did you experience a separation of consciousness from your body?” In response, 75.4% of our near-death experiencers said “Yes.”

And I understand that the consciousness always goes above the body, that it’s up on the ceiling, usually looking down.

Virtually all the time. It’s quite rare to have the point of consciousness go below the level of the physical body; very, very uncommon to have the point of consciousness at the same level as the physical body. Virtually all the time that there’s an out-of-body experience, consciousness rises up above the body, maybe directly over the body or to some other area, sort of looking at the body from an angle. But in general, that’s how an out-of-body experience works.

Some of the most dramatic near-death experiences that I read involve the point of consciousness leaving far away from the physical body. They may travel outside of the emergency room where they’ve suffered, for example, a heart attack and cardiac arrest. They’re actually able to see and hear ongoing events far from their physical body and far from any possible sensory awareness.

For example, we’ve had people have consciousness and during this out-of-body experience part of their near-death experience go to the nursing station where they were, even though they are in the operating room with their heart stopped. We’ve had people in an operating theater where they had their heart stop and then yet their consciousness was in the cafeteria of the hospital where they were seeing and hearing right at that point in time what their family was talking about and that is absolutely medically inexplicable.

An example of an out-of-body experience is, “I could feel my spirit actually leaving my body. I saw and heard the conversations between my husband and the doctors taking place outside my room about 40 feet away down a hallway. I was later able to verify this conversation to my shocked husband.”

After when they have their out-of-body experience, even if they were in an incredibly painful situation that caused them to nearly die, immediately they’re feeling no pain at all. They may feel a profound sense of peace and connection. In fact the most common word, what they feel and what is described in near-death experience is “love.”

They feel love intensely, compassionately. They feel a connection or unity of people that they see and all other people. Very dramatic, incredibly intense, positive emotions described in near-death experiences.

Our sincere thanks Dr. Jeffrey Long for speaking with us about your important research on near death experiences. Next Monday on Science and Spirituality, in part two of our three part series on NDEs, Dr. Long will further elaborate on the lines of evidence he considers proof beyond doubt of the afterlife, including blind people experiencing visual perceptions during their NDEs and small children giving near death experience details similar to adults.

For more details on Dr. Jeffrey Long, please visit Dr. Long’s book Evidence of the Afterlife is available at Our appreciation caring viewers for your company on today’s program. Next is Words of Wisdom, after Noteworthy News. May we all look within to discover who we truly are.

Imagine if all your life you had been deprived of one of your senses, and then experienced it for the first time…

Near-death experiences have been described in those totally blind from birth, they contain vision, not just fragments of vision or partial vision but dramatic, crystal clear vision.

Discover more of the fascinating findings of Dr. Jeffrey Long, a physician who is on the forefront of near death experience research, in the second of a three part series on his work airing Monday, July 26, on Science and Spirituality.
Welcome, curious viewers, to Science and Spirituality on Supreme Master Television for the second in a three part series on near death experiences or NDEs.

The non-profit Near Death Experience Research Foundation was founded by Dr. Jeffrey Long, a radiation oncologist from Louisiana, USA and his wife in 1998 and serves as a platform for people from all walks of life to share their personal NDE stories with the public by submitting them online at the Foundation’s website. Over a thousand near death experiencers, from all age groups, races, and religious backgrounds have documented their stories at the website.

Dr. Long has discerned nine common themes from these recorded experiences. He says that these similarities constitute nine lines of evidence that, taken together, are conclusive proof for the existence of an afterlife. Dr. Long will now expand on one of these lines of evidence – heightened senses, meaning supernormal vision.

What’s amazing about many near-death experiences is that they can see things during their near-death experience even if the object is far, far from their physical body or from where they are during their near-death experience. And in fact, many near-death experiences describe what’s referred to as “360 degree vision.”

You see, those of us that live our normal earthly life, we have, if you will, a pie-shaped visual field because our eyes are back in the skull and because of their location in the eye socket, we can only see so far peripherally.

Yes. And you’ve described near-death experiences occurring in people who are actually blind from birth.

I think one of the most evidential near-death experiences that I’ve ever heard occurs in those that are totally blind from birth. For those people born totally blind from birth, vision is an abstraction. You cannot explain vision to somebody born totally blind in terms of the remaining four senses. I’ve tried; it’s impossible.

And yet, near-death experiences have been described in those totally blind from birth that contain vision, not just fragments of vision or partial vision but dramatic, crystal clear vision. It may include 360 degree vision, and it is absolutely vision that immediately the near-death experiencer recognizes as being a completely unique sense that they have never had in their life.

I know in your book you described an experience of a person who was blind, who for the first time in her near-death experience saw her wedding rings. She knew that they were hers because of the particular floral design that was on them.

In one dramatic near-death experience account from a lady who was born totally blind, for the first time in her life she saw her body down on the gurney in the emergency room, unconscious as a result of the auto accident she was in. She immediately was horrified and shocked because she’d never had vision before. It was so unfamiliar.

After she calmed down a little bit, she was aware of seeing a body down below on the gurney but she didn’t know who it was, and it was only after she became aware through her newfound sense of vision, by correlating what she was seeing with knowing that she had long hair and knowing what the ring felt like, she was able to correlate the feel of the floral design on the ring with her first time in her life ability to see it.

That’s astounding. Also, what about sound? Is sound enhanced as well? I noticed that a lot of people actually talk about a very beautiful silence.

There are a number of near-death experiences in which silence occurs and it’s not a frightening silence, it’s sort of a warm, loving, embracing, peaceful, if you will, type of a silence. And yet at other times, hearing can be far more, if you will, acute than we experience here in our earthly, everyday life.

In other words, it becomes possible, especially in more detailed near-death experiences and especially in unearthly realms where they may be able to hear, if you will, sound that’s occurring far, far away from them, far outside of any possible physical, sensory awareness.

We asked Dr. Long about another of the nine lines of evidence he has noted, that of the life review.

It's interesting that a life review happens in some percentage of near death experiences. And when a life review happens, they may see either portions of their prior life or all of their prior life. This is often described as like scenes in a movie or they’ll have scenes that they can visually see that are apart from them, seemingly even flashing in their brain. But what’s fascinating are the so-called panoramic life reviews where they see all of their prior life.

And in fact, as part of these panoramic life reviews, they may not only see every single action of their prior life, but they may become aware of what the other person felt like that they see themselves interacting with. During the few minutes they were unconscious or clinically dead, their consciousness is so accelerated that they are able to review their entire prior life.

I think it's very important for people to know that during a near-death experience, when they have a life review, there's no sense of external judgment. In other words, there’s often other beings with them, but they don't feel judged by the other beings. If there's any judgment or decisions or understandings, anything like that to be made about their prior life, it is simply from the near-death experiencer, and nobody else.

Following this brief message, Dr. Long will explain why the concepts of time and space are different to one undergoing a near death experience. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television.

Welcome back to Science and Spirituality on Supreme Master Television. Dr. Jeffrey Long of the Near Death Experience Research Foundation is sharing the accounts of people who have undergone near-death experiences, with a focus on elements that he has found common to the over one thousand individual reports of this phenomenon he has studied.

Almost uniformly, near-death experiencers will say time did not exist in these unearthly realms. Space seems to be very, very different from what we know on Earth. In near-death experiences, they may move tremendous distances in what an earthly time would be seconds. It's as if time and space are completely different in these unearthly realms.

It's interesting in many near-death experiences they will say that everything seems to be happening at once. So it's as if not only is there no time but your time seems to be so compressed or so nonexistent that a multitude of events, for example they can see their entire life, which may have been decades in the making, in literally minutes.

A good example of alteration of time and space during a near-death experience: “It seemed as though I experienced so much in such a small length of time where my soul had traveled yet knew nothing of time as we know of time passing here on Earth.”

You mentioned that everything is happening at the same time, the past, the present, the future, is all happening at the same time.

What I consider one of the really fascinating things that I have discovered with near-death experiencers and actually many other people observed, observed this too, is that there seems to be some things that we’re seeing in near-death experiences such as the complete absence of time. There seems to be other physical dimensions going on.

There seems to be concepts that we're just starting to learn about in physics, such as quantum physics, such as the ability of physical matter to bi-locate or physical matter that's geographically apart from each other, where there's one interaction on one part of the matter that which is, if you will, entangled with, it will have the same or similar interaction even if it's geographically apart.

All the past and present enlightened Masters have spoken about heavenly kingdoms and beautiful worlds beyond our physical dimension. Have any of those who have undergone an NDE seen these places? Dr. Long now shares from his book, Evidence of the Afterlife, one person’s account of traveling to another world.

“The landscape was beautiful, blue skies, rolling hills, flowers. All was full of light as if lit from within itself and emanating light, not reflecting it.”

“There was such beauty beyond expression. There was also a bright city or something like a city in the distance. The colors and structures of everything were beautiful, awesome.”

“All around me, I could see and feel a beautiful peace and tranquility with love and peace. As far as the eye could see to my left, was a beautiful landscape of tulips, of every color imaginable, to my right was a wall of a beautiful blue that matched the sky.”

There is such consistency in these descriptions of these unearthly realms. I mean the landscapes that are beautiful beyond anything they could even imagine here on Earth. There may be the colors, the light, harmony, peace and beauty that is just unimaginable and seemingly even indescribable with earthly words when they returned. There’s no doubt about it from the point of view of people that have had a near-death experience and traveled to these wondrous realms, there is a heaven because they've experienced it.

I am convinced in my research of near-death experience that we are finite people interacting with the infinite when we have a near-death experience. So it's no surprise that there will be some variability in how these wondrous heavenly places are described.

Think of it, you're interacting with some small portions of that which is infinite, even beyond our imagination on Earth. And so there’s no doubt that that small slice of incredible beauty and wonder is what they experience and share with us after they return from their near-death experience.

One of the most remarkable revelations of Dr. Long’s research is the near-death experiences of children, including those considered too young to possess an understanding of the concepts of death, religion, or an afterlife, who report similar visions and feelings during their NDEs as those much older than them.

During an interview with a television news program, Dr. Long stated: “My research involved experiences of young children age 5 and under, and I found the content of their near-death experiences is absolutely identical to older children and adults.” To close today’s program, we would like to convey our sincere appreciation to you, Dr. Jeffrey Long, for discussing your fascinating research on near death experiences, an endeavor that is uniting the worlds of science and spirituality.

For more details on Dr. Jeffrey Long, please visit Dr. Long’s book Evidence of the Afterlife is available at Next Monday on Science and Spirituality, the last and final part of our series will feature further insights from Dr. Jeffrey Long on the lines of evidence that have led him to the conclusion that an afterlife exists.

Splendid viewers, thank you for your company today on our program. Next is Words of Wisdom, after Noteworthy News. May the Providence always guide and care for all beings in our world.

Welcome, splendid viewers, to Science and Spirituality on Supreme Master Television for the third of a three part series on near death experiences or NDEs featuring a leading expert in the field, Dr. Jeffrey Long.

The non-profit Near Death Experience Research Foundation was founded by Dr. Long, a radiation oncologist from Louisiana, USA and his wife in 1998 and serves as a platform for people from all walks of life to share their personal NDE stories with the public by submitting them online at the Foundation’s website.

Over a thousand near death experiencers, from all age groups, races, and religious backgrounds have documented their stories at the website. Dr. Long has discerned nine common themes from these recorded experiences. He says that these similarities constitute nine lines of evidence that, taken together, are conclusive proof for the existence of an afterlife.

It is astounding to me the wisdom and knowledge that near-death experiencers sometimes are aware of. It's as if all of a sudden, in the unearthly realms, they have a sense of knowing how the universe works, how it all fits together. Unfortunately, when they returned to Earth, they often, in fact typically find it very difficult to articulate their knowledge.

A good example of that is one near-death experiencer who said that the universe of knowledge that he had during his near-death experience when he returned to his earthly body was like trying to hold an ocean of unearthly knowledge in a tea cup of his earthly brain.

So as result of that, when they're again interacting with something infinite and having that type of infinite wisdom, it's just simply not reasonable to think that those of us in finite earthly existence are going to be able to remember and assimilate and understand all of that infinite knowledge.

A commonly reported feeling among near death experiencers is a desire to not return to the body after stepping into the afterlife. Dr. Long has documented the different reasons people have cited for returning to the physical realm.

When there's a discussion about returning into their earthly body, the near-death experiencer generally doesn't want any part of going back to the earthly body. They feel that intense peace, connection, love, and harmony. They feel they are a part of that unearthly heavenly realm and they want to stay there.

The most common reason that they ultimately decide if you will, to choose to return to their earthly body is number one: being in loving relationships, especially family relationships seemed to be very, very important in terms of what they need to learn. Important lessons about love and relationships are one of the major reasons that people ultimately choose to come to Earth.

Another important reason is that they return to their earthly body because they have lessons to learn. In other words, they realize that there are important things that they need to learn during their earthly existence, there are important lessons that apparently can only be learned here on Earth in an earthly existence. That is so important that they are willing to leave the beauty and wonder of a heavenly realm to return to Earth.

A lot of times you hear they're told ''It's not your time yet, you have to go back.” That's a very common phrase.

Many near-death experiences will have the phrase ''It's not your time.'' There seems to be an implication in that statement that there's a time when you're ready to return to the earthly realm or unearthly realm or that heavenly realm permanently. There's a time when the earthly life really should end. What seems to be important is that you have finished learning the lessons that you need to learn during your earthly life.

In fact, near-death experiencers will often say being in that earthly existence is actually a gift, it's actually a part of their overall spiritual development that they've had that opportunity to come down to Earth and to live their existence here.

Despite the large and growing body of scientific evidence for the reality of near death experiences, some have suggested alternative explanations for people’s accounts such as that they are mere hallucinations. Dr. Long now addresses one of these alternative theories.

Skeptics, they're trying to explain the near-death experience by the lack of oxygen to the brain. Can you describe what happens when we have a lack of oxygen and how that is different from a near-death experience?

One of my favorite skeptical explanations, if you will, of near-death experience is hypoxia which means decreased oxygen in the blood. But many of us in our life have had hypoxia: we may become severely short of breath, we may be experiencing suffocation for a whole variety of reasons. Well, when you're hypoxic - it has been very scientifically studied and determined - you slowly have decreased consciousness and the more hypoxic you get, the more toward unconsciousness you become.

Finally, when you've been hypoxic or you have a low enough blood oxygen level you're actually completely unconscious. Hypoxia and its associated progression toward complete unconsciousness is actually a very strong explanation for the inexplicability of near-death experiences in the sense that they are occurring in the face of a life-threatening event often with severe hypoxia at a time they should be associated with unconsciousness. And yet, the near-death experience, they are not unconscious, they are having these highly lucid, vivid, ordered experiences.

We’ll have more from our interview with the knowledgeable Dr. Long in just a few moments. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television.

Welcome back to Science and Spirituality on Supreme Master Television. According to Dr. Jeffrey Long’s book Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences, those that have undergone a near death experience report remarkably similar aspects of their experience regardless of their age group, religious background or culture.

One of the lines of evidence Dr. Long has advanced as proof of the afterlife is what he calls lucid or crystal-clear consciousness. This is defined as alertness when one is considered clinically dead and is a state that is not able to be explained by medical science.

Can we elaborate on ''lucid consciousness''?

The great majority of people that have a near-death experience, even though every physical test and clinical observation indicates that they are unconscious or clinically dead, at that time they are having a highly lucid experience. In fact, one of my studies' survey questions asked what was your level of consciousness and alertness at the time of your near-death experience?

About 76% of near-death experiencers said that their level of consciousness and alertness was actually higher than that of their earthly everyday life, and that's medically inexplicable.

I mean, clinically, if you go to any dictionary on Earth, unconscious means “no consciousness.” That means no ability to have a conscience, remembrance during that time that you're unconscious. And yet, consistently, essentially every near-death experience at the time that they are unconscious, that's when the near death experience is occurring. And there's no possible medical explanation for it.

One of our survey questions asked near-death experiencers if their experience was dream-like in any way. The question was deliberately worded for them to give an affirmative “yes” response if there was any part of their near-death experience that was in any way like a dream.

Essentially, uniformly, the response to that question was not just ''no'', but ''absolutely no.'' Near-death experiencers responded over and over and over that there was absolutely no connection between the experience of dreams and their near-death experience.

The near-death experience is not fragmented, it's very clear, it's not blurred, not confused.

Virtually all other types of pathological conditions of human consciousness - that is dreams, maybe hallucinations, maybe even psychotic episodes – typically, in other types of altered consciousness, the flow of the experience is fragmentary. That can happen in other types of pathological altered consciousness as well, but you essentially never see that experience. The experience elements don't skip around.

They are very logical and they are ordered in which they occur and very flowing with no skipping around. There's continuity from a natural progression from one element to the other typically seen in near-death experiences. Near-death experience has nothing to do with dreams whatsoever.

Another factor that was considered is since 1975, more and more people have become aware of near-death experiences because there have been books published and because of TV shows.

One of the studies I did was to compare near-death experiences before 1975. Now that's an important year because that was the year that the book ''Life After Life'' by Dr. Raymond Moody was published, and that was the first book that described near-death experience. Before 1975, we knew essentially nothing about near-death experience. In fact, the term wasn't even invented.

But as part of my study, I looked at near-death experiences that occurred prior to 1975 and compared them to near-death experiences that occurred after 1975 and compared the elements of the experience. They were essentially, absolutely identical between the two groups. So that tells me, as a scientist, that it doesn't make any difference ''when'' your near death experience occurred, if you'd even heard about near-death experience at all.

A near-death experience seemed to be constant whether or not there's any possibility that you'd have even heard of near-death experience. There seems to be no suggestion whatsoever from my research, from that study, that if you've heard of a near-death experience that that will alter what you share about your near-death experience at all.

Also you mentioned in the book that about 66% of people who had a near-death experience have never even heard of a near-death experience before that.

Yes, that's true, surprisingly. We had a surprisingly high percentage of my near-death experiencers surveyed, about two thirds indicated that at the time of their near-death experience they didn't even know what a near-death experience was, they'd never heard about it.

And yet, they have typical near-death experiences just like all other people even those who have heard about near-death experience. So once again, further strong evidence that it makes no difference whether you've heard of a near-death experience or not heard about a near-death experience, that is not going to change the elements of what occurs in a near-death experience at all.

Dr Jeffrey Long is not only convinced that there is an afterlife, he is also sure that death is a transition to another wonderful new beginning. He shares with everyone a beautiful message: “My absolute understanding that there is an afterlife for all of us - and a wonderful afterlife.” And: “The bottom line is what's on the other side is home.”

Our deep thanks Dr. Jeffrey Long for your insightful work that is showing the world through the lenses of science that death is not the end of the road, but the start of a new journey for those who cross to the other side. We wish the Near Death Experience Research Foundation the very best in its future work in this fascinating area that blends science and spirituality.
