At the Hour of Death: A New Look at Evidence for Life After Death [NOOK Book]

Overview

We can be certain that the body does not survive death. Once the heart stops circulating blood, the brain is no longer nourished and begins to decay. On the basis of medical evidence it would seem that, within a quarter of an hour, the personality is irreparably destroyed and the individual ceases to exist.

Overview

We can be certain that the body does not survive death. Once the heart stops circulating blood, the brain is no longer nourished and begins to decay. On the basis of medical evidence it would seem that, within a quarter of an hour, the personality is irreparably destroyed and the individual ceases to exist. But now there is mounting scientific evidence for a life after death. In At the Hour of Death, veteran psychical researchers Karlis Osis, Ph.D and Erlendur Haraldsson, Ph.D collated compelling evidence that suggests we, as conscious beings, do survive physical death.
This book is the product of extensive interviews of over 1,000 doctors and nurses who have been present when cases of "post-mortem existence" have occurred. Extensive computer analyses of their observations have been made. The results are reported in this first truly scientific investigation of the experiences of the dying at the hour of death.
What these doctors and nurses have witnessed cannot be explained away by medical, psychological, cultural, or other conditioning. Yet it may answer the fundamental question of human existence.


"Finally, a book that probes death and dying with modern research techniques. Osis and Haraldsson present compelling evidence that the deathbed is the gateway to another existence. The visions of the dying appear to be not hallucinations but glimpses through the windows of eternity."
—Alan Vaughan, editor of New Realities Magazine

"A major contribution to the scientific study of the question of post-mortem existence. —Raymond A. Moody, M.D., author of Life After Life

Meet the Author

Erlendur Haraldsson, Ph.D., was born in Reykjavik, Iceland, in 1931. After finishing his studies at the gymnasium (college), he studied philosophy in Copenhagen, Edinburgh and Freiburg for four years, worked for a few years as a journalist and writer, traveling extensively in western Asia and India. During that time, he wrote a book on the Kurdish uprising in Iraq, which was published in Iceland and Germany.
He studied psychology at the German universities of Freiburg and Munich and received the diploma of psychology, a degree which is equivalent to the M.A. in the United States. From 1969 to 1970 he was a research fellow at Dr. J. B. Rhine's Institute of Parapsychology in Durham, North Carolina.
Haraldsson underwent his internship in clinical psychology from 1970 to 1971 in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. He spent some of that time at the university's Division of Perceptual Studies which was headed by Prof. Ian Stevenson with whom he later conducted studies of mediumship and of children who claim to remember past lives. Early in 1972, Haraldsson obtained his Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Freiburg.
He was a research associate in 1972 and 1973 at the American Society for Psychical Research in New York working with Karlis Osis on the extensive cross-cultural study of deathbed visions. Since 1974, he has been professor of psychology at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik.
Haraldsson has published over seventy papers in peer-reviewed journals in America and Europe, has written many chapters for edited books, the latest being for Exploring the Frontiers of the Mind-Brain Relationship. He is the author of six books. Among them are At the Hour of Death (with Karlis Osis), Modern Miracles, and The Departed Among the Living.

Karlis Osis, Ph.D., was born in Riga, Latvia, in 1917, and is one of the few psychologists to have obtained a Ph.D. with a thesis dealing with extrasensory perception (University of Munich, 1950).

Osis is past president of the Parapsychological Association and a member of the American Psychological Association, Eastern Psychological Association, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Society for Scientific Study of Religion, and various organizations concerned with the study of psychic phenomena and human personality. Karlis Osis passed away on December 26, 1997.
