Dr. Eben Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon and graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked – but a near-death experience changed all of that.
In 2008, Alexander suffered a rare case of bacterial meningitis-encephalitis. He spent a week in a coma, fighting for his life. After seven days, he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm. Near-death experiences are controversial. Thousands of people have had them, but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander has been featured on the World News with Diane Sawyer, Oprah and Larry King Live.
