Episode 55 - David Ditchfield - My journey to the afterlife

Quote:My guest for this episode is author, artist and composer David Ditchfield. In 2006, David was dragged under a speeding train in a freak accident. Amazingly he survived this and as the surgeons fought to save him at the hospital, he had a profound near death experience.

After this happened he soon found that he had acquired astonishing new abilities. He could paint dramatic paintings of what he had seen in the afterlife, far beyond any artistic ability he had before. He then discovered he could compose classical music, despite having never received any formal training.

His debut symphony, The Divine Light, was premiered at a sell-out orchestral concert to a standing ovation. He has since composed further classical works which have also been performed at sell-out concerts and completed over forty paintings, many inspired by his NDE. He has also written a book called Shine On, which tells his remarkable story and was released in 2020. We end the episode with the first movement from The Divine Light.

Relating this back to an old Skeptiko Forum thread on Anomalous Knowledge.

Though what he gained wasn't exactly knowledge, it was creativity. But then it seems we have factual knowledge about the structures of Nature (Occult Chemistry), the discovery of Proofs (Ramanujan), and finally the development of new structures added to the Whole (Savants).

Though there has been discussion that Mathematical and Musical prodigies are the same [as in both gifts originate from a similar brain/mind potential applied in two different ways.]
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
