Yet after being in a coma for seven days, he recovered completely and was able to recount his near death experience. Dr Alexander has written down all that he experienced in his book, which we will be discussing tonight, as well as Dr Alexander’s views on death and indeed life beyond death. So a warm welcome to you Dr Alexander. First of all I would like to talk about what death actually is.

You begin on the other side experiencing a dark, muddy state of existence which you call “the realm of the earthworm’s eye view”. Could this be what some people think of as “hell” or would you see it as a different place to that? After that you were taken up to the light
