Why Unexplainable Experiences Are So Common When Loved Ones Die

Steve Taylor

Quote:Key points
  • Many unusual experiences are reported by people who witness or are connected to someone's death.

  • These include spiritual experiences of elation, and profound altered states of consciousness.

  • "Crisis apparitions" may occur when a person is not even aware that a relative or friend is close to death.

  • Studies show that three-quarters of people have sensed the presence of a deceased loved one in some form.
'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.'

- Bertrand Russell

I'm not sure that article justifies the use of the word 'Why' in its title. Aside from that, it seems interesting.
