in the 19th century, following the teachings of Phineas Quimby. There are numerous smaller
groups, most of which are incorporated in the International New Thought Alliance.
The concept of New Thought (sometimes known as "Higher Thought") promotes the ideas that
Infinite Intelligence, or God, is everywhere, spirit is the totality of real things, true human
selfhood is divine, divine thought is a force for good, sickness originates in the mind, and "right
Although New Thought is neither monolithic nor doctrinaire, in general, modern-day adherents
of New Thought believe that God or Infinite Intelligence is "supreme, universal, and
everlasting", that divinity dwells within each person, that all people are spiritual beings, that
"the highest spiritual principle is loving one another unconditionally, and teaching and healing
one another", and that "our mental states are carried forward into manifestation and become our
experience in daily living".
The New Thought movement originated in the early 19th century, and survives to the current day
in the form of a loosely allied group of religious denominations, authors, philosophers, and
individuals who share a set of beliefs concerning metaphysics, positive thinking, the law of
attraction, healing, life force, creative visualization, and personal power.
A Near-Death Experience (NDE) is a personal experience associated with impending death,
psychological, physiological, and transcendental explanations. Research from neuroscience
considers the NDE to be a hallucinatory state caused by various physiological and psychological
Ascent of the Blessed by Hieronymus Bosch is associated by some NDE researchers with aspects of
the NDE. The equivalent French term expérience de mort imminente (experience of imminent
death) was proposed by the French psychologist and epistemologist Victor Egger as a result of
discussions in the 1890s among philosophers and psychologists concerning climbers' stories of the
panoramic life review during falls. In 1968 Celia Green published an analysis of 400 first-hand
accounts of out-of-body experiences. This represented the first attempt to provide a taxonomy of
such experiences, viewed simply as anomalous perceptual experiences, or hallucinations. These
experiences were popularized by the work of psychiatrist Raymond Moody in 1975 as the
near-death experience (NDE).
Researchers have identified the common elements that define near-death experiences. Bruce
Greyson argues that the general features of the experience include impressions of being outside
one's physical body, visions of deceased relatives and religious figures, and transcendence of egotic
and spatiotemporal boundaries. Many common elements have been reported, although the person's
interpretation of these events often corresponds with the cultural, philosophical, or religious beliefs
of the person experiencing it.
Another common element in near-death experiences is encountering people, which are generally
identified according to the person's individual faith; for instance, in the USA, where 46% of the
population believes in guardian angels, they will often be identified as angels or deceased loved
ones (or will be unidentified), while Hindus will often identify them as messengers of the god of
Although the features of NDEs vary from one case to the next, common traits that have been
reported by NDErs are as follows:
- A sense/awareness of being dead.
- A sense of peace, well-being and painlessness. Positive emotions. A sense of removal from
- An out-of-body experience. A perception of one's body from an outside position. Sometimes
observing doctors and nurses performing medical resuscitation efforts.
- A "tunnel experience" or entering a darkness. A sense of moving up, or through, a
passageway or staircase.
- A rapid movement toward and/or sudden immersion in a powerful light (or "Being of
Light") which communicates with the person.
- An intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance.
- Encountering "Beings of Light", "Beings dressed in white", or similar. Also, the possibility
of being reunited with deceased loved ones.
- Receiving a life review, commonly referred to as "seeing one's life flash before one's eyes".
- Receiving knowledge about one's life and the nature of the universe.
- Approaching a border, or a decision by oneself or others to return to one's body, often
accompanied by a reluctance to return.
- Suddenly finding oneself back inside one's body.
Connection to the cultural beliefs held by the individual, which seem to dictate some of the
phenomena experienced in the NDE and particularly the later interpretation thereof.
Kenneth Ring (1980) subdivided the NDE on a five-stage continuum. The subdivisions were:
- Body separation
- Entering darkness
- Seeing the light
- Entering the light
He stated that 60% experienced stage 1 (feelings of peace and contentment), but only 10%
experienced stage 5 ("entering the light").
Clinical circumstances associated with near-death experiences include cardiac arrest in myocardial
infarction (clinical death); shock in postpartum loss of blood or in perioperative complications;
septic or anaphylactic shock; electrocution; coma resulting from traumatic brain damage;
intracerebral hemorrhage or cerebral infarction; attempted suicide; near-drowning or asphyxia;
apnea; and serious depression. In contrast to common belief, Kenneth Ring argues that attempted
suicides do not lead more often to unpleasant NDEs than unintended near-death situations.
