From Reductive Materialism to Knowing the Primacy of Mind

Today's post turns to my inbox (mailbag in the (G)olden days) and a e-mail from The Rhine Institute - who is having a speaker in the near future who's focus is `The Primacy Of Mind'. As Clockers may know, in UDCC's opinion, at least PART of the UFO phenomena is mental perceptual (and perhaps many parts) - of the total phenomena - in all its extensions. So, to that end, below UDCC will reproduce the mailing. IF you are close to Durham N.C. - please think about attending a Rhine event.

From Reductive Materialism to Knowing the Primacy of Mind

~ A Neurosurgeon’s Remarkable Near-Death Experience
an evening with Eben Alexander III, MD
Friday October 7 , 2011
Stedman Auditorium on the Duke Center for Living Campus


7:30 -9:00 pm


Dr. Eben Alexander III has been an academic neurosurgeon for the last 25 years, including 15 years on staff at Harvard Medical School in Boston. He firmly believed in the conventional reductive materialist view of the world. This left little room for acknowledgement of the existence of parapsychological (or psi) phenomena.
He had dealt with hundreds of patients rendered comatose by trauma, brain tumors, infections, or stroke. None of them offered insight about their experience. Early on November 10, 2008, he became a comatose patient.
It remains obscure why he was overcome by a fulminant bacterial meningitis and was comatose, on a ventilator, in the Intensive Care Unit within hours. Bacterial meningitis provides the most efficient means of mimicking human death by selectively destroying the outer surface, or neocortex, which is the part of the brain that makes us human.
His physicians were stunned to find that the culprit was E. coli, a bacteria that almost never causes spontaneous meningitis in adults. After six days on triple antibiotics, showing no response and with little neurological function remaining, his physicians were close to giving up. Chances for meaningful recovery were very slim.


On day seven he started to come back, to the great surprise of his doctors. Like a newborn, he had no functioning language, nor knowledge of this world, of human culture, or of the loved ones surrounding him. Foggy-minded for several days, he steadily improved and began writing his recollections of the experience.
The most extraordinary part of his journey happened deep in coma. His earliest recollections were of strange, hyper-realistic experiences in an awesome realm. They involved no recall of his life before coma. How was it possible for that rich, vivid experience to originate in his badly infected brain, especially with his neocortex shut down?
Reports of Near Death Experiences (NDEs) have been limited in their value of elucidating what occurs after actual death. The treasure trove is in teasing out what death is like, not near-death. In the midst of his week in coma, he had an extraordinary spiritual experience, one that irrefutably proved the primacy of the realm of mind and consciousness.
He has been blessed with a complete recovery. In analyzing his experience, including the scientific possibilities and grand implications, he envisions a profound reconciliation of modern science and spirituality as a natural product. The keystone is in the nature of consciousness, and what his experience revealed about the relationship of mind and reality.
Enlightened science will acknowledge the primacy of mind and the existence of psi phenomena. Thence on to pursue the grander elucidation of truth, and the fundamental nature of reality and existence. His will be a critical addition to the understanding of NDEs, the spiritual realm, and psi phenomena in general. He is writing a book about this most powerful, life-changing story, which should be available in 2012.

Eben Alexander III graduated from UNC 1976 with a BA in Chemistry, graduated from Duke University Medical School in 1980, and completed his neurosurgical residency training at Duke in 1987. He was on the faculty of Harvard Medical School from 1988 through 2001, achieving the rank of Associate Professor of Surgery (Neurosurgery) by 1994. He then directed the Movement Disorders Surgery Program (Neurosurgery) at UMass Medical School. He moved to Virginia in 2006, where he continued in neurosurgery, including work as director of global research for the Focused Ultrasound Surgery Foundation in Charlottesville, VA.

A MESSAGE ABOUT UFO DISCLOSURE AND THIS WEBPAGE

MANY PEOPLE COME TO THIS WEBSITE UNAWARE THAT UFO DISCLOSURE IN THE USA OCCURRED IN LATE 2011, WHEN THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALLY TOOK THE POSITION THAT NO HUMAN-ALIEN INTERACTION HAD EVER OCCURRED; AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT WAS NOT WITHHOLDING INFORMATION ABOUT THE UFO PHENOMENA FROM THE PUBLIC. YOU WILL FIND THE LINK TO THAT OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT AND THE ONE DAY MEDIA REACTION - IN THIS SIDEBAR. THE OFFICIAL POSITION OF UDCC ABOUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS THAT IT AMOUNTS TO `SUPPRESSION WITH DISCLOSURE'.

NOW, THAT IS NOT TO SUGGEST THAT TONS OF REAL GOVERNMENT INFORMATION ABOUT THE UFO PHENOMENA DOESN'T EXIST AND HASN'T BEEN RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC ALSO - BECAUSE AGAIN IN THIS SIDEBAR, YOU WILL SEE TONS OF SUCH DOCUMENTS. NSA DOCUMENTS, FBI DOCUMENTS, ETC ETC.

BUT NOW, IN 2017 - THE MSM IS `OUT OF STEP' IF IT EVEN SUGGESTS THAT THE UNKNOWN IN OUR SKIES ARE `ALIENS'. UDCC'S HOPES THAT THIS POINT IS NOT LIGHTLY TAKEN AS IT IMO HAS INDEED ALREADY ALTERED THE WAY THE UFO PHENOMENA IS COVERED BY A SPINELESS MSM.

UDCC HAS ALSO NOW WRITTEN OVER 1300 POSTS ON THE SUBJECT MATTER - MOST OF THE IMPORTANT DETAILED ANALYSIS MATERIAL HAS BEEN REMOVED AND PUT INTO MY E-BOOKS ABOUT MY OPINIONS OF THE UFOLOGY AND MASS COMMUNICATION POSITIONING OF UFOLOGY BY THE MSM.

THE MODERN DAY UFO MOTIF IDENTIFIED BY UDCC - THE ANSWER TO 99% OF UFO EXPERIENCES

The `UFO Motif' is a vigorous plasma Orb that catches ones attention - morphs, often into a structured shape as it comes very close to the observer location - then it often morphs one more time into a structured `Neighborhood UFO' (aka an Impossible Craft perception) - this is where folks then `see' low flying, slow moving `Triangles' or other UFO shapes - often followed (after departure) by `helicopters' or `military jets' - both of which are simply part of the total perception. The `Neighborhood UFO' then often passes out of perception range to NOT be reported `downstream' or `upstream' usually - proving that it is a localized experience (often tied to intentionalities on the ground and with humans). EXTREME close encounters can easily produce the perceptions of missing time.
