Near Death Experience of a Neurosurgeon

Interview reveals how a near-death experience changed everything neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander thought he knew about consciousness, spirituality, and life after death.

Dr. Alexander has been an academic neurosurgeon for more than 25 years, including 15 years at Harvard Medical School in Boston. In November of 2008, he had a near-death experience that changed his life and caused him to rethink everything he thought he knew about the human brain and consciousness.

A bacterial meningitis has found, and Dr. Alexander fell into a coma. During his coma, he had no recollection of his body, his life, the language he spoke and felt like a worm that moved through the soil, until a warm, loving light reached him.

He saw the most beautiful butterflies and flew over a beautiful green landscape and then there was a spinning melody, this bright melody that just started spinning in front of him. Beautiful, beautiful melody compared to that dull pounding sound that he heard for eons. Dr. Alexander was led out our universe and suddenly got an overview of the infinite multiverse.

Prior to his coma, Dr. Alexander thought to know how interaction occurs between the brain and consciousness. He was so sure that the brain gives human consciousness and everything else, the soul, the mind and consciousness, disappears when the brain dies.

“Now, after my coma, I can tell you that in fact the consciousness operates independently from the brain” said Dr. Alexander.

  1. I have always believed that the human body was just a vessel. The part that is really us is just energy. The body including our brains are our connection to the physical world. Our emotions are independent from our bodies and yet they effect our bodies daily. Emotions are really us. The body works with or with out them. That tells me that there is more to us then a physical presence. The only way to know how you are feeling is through measuring electrical impulses and through body language. A person can hide their true emotions however if they apply themselves but internally they are still having those emotions. We are more then the sum of our parts.

    I am glad to see others are finally opening up to this. We truly are more then just a body. There is a separation between body, mind and soul. We learn to breach those boundaries as we get older and only a few know how to go back or realize what we truly are.


  2. Truely amazing story. Too bad we have to be deathly ill, and at death’s door, to have such clarity and knowledge of life beyond death. No one else’s experience can truely prove it to us, we will all have to find out for ourselves.
