Top brain surgeon claims afterlife exists

A Harvard-educated neurosurgeon had a change of heart after he had his own near-death experience.
[!gad]Dr Eben Alexander had previously dismissed the idea of there being an afterlife until he slipped in to a coma in 2008 after contracting meningitis. What followed was an experience that would change his outlook forever and turn him from a skeptic in to a believer. He described it as "something so profound that it gave me a scientific reason to believe in consciousness after death." During the coma he remembered meeting a beautiful woman with blue eyes in an environment filled with clouds and 'shimmering beings'.

"A huge and booming like a glorious chant, came down from above, and I wondered if the winged beings were producing it," he added. "The sound was palpable and almost material, like a rain that you can feel on your skin but doesn't get you wet."
Dr Alexander says he had heard stories from patients who spoke of outer body experiences but had disregarded them as "wishful thinking" but has reconsidered his opinion following his own experience.

I am on my mobile which limits me;what I experienced was so profound that I do not fear death and our bodies are husks.

In fact,having had an NDE,it is just the beginning of something that is too overwhelming to express.
