    Yet despite no empirical evidence ( physical evidence ) , the spirit world exists .

    Under hypnosis , past lives become into the fore.

    And NDE becomes real from those who do it and those who experience the patients retelling of their experience .

    And actually the empirical evidence can be argued from the point of the patient knowing more than they should .

    For example while under anesthesia patients , floating above themselves hear conversations taking place in the operation room .

    That's easy, if you have imagination. I can imagine myself sitting across the room, looking at myself.

    NDE is not something to make fun of . For patients who experience out of body experience , and DR's who also experience this , it is a very real experience .

    A TV program I have mentioned before

    QI

    had a small segment in the program where they mentioned people who had been interviewed about their Out of Body Experience

    Unbeknown to said persons items had been placed on top of cupboards

    Nobody could name such items

    Funny that

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirit_world_(Spiritualism)

    In this extract below from the above link I learnt

    Also, the spirit world is "The Home of the Soul" as described by C. W. Leadbeater (Theosophist) suggesting that for a living human to experience the spirit world is a blissful, meaningful and life changing experience.[13]

    Who would have thought being dead would be life changing experience

    Oh wait it says for a living human to experience

    Somebody set me straight please

    Do the living die - go to the spirit world - then come back (The Returned Dead?)?

    Or do living people go to the spirit world while still alive? (Die without dying dead?)

    So many questions

    So much Woo Woo

    I am serious. You have to watch this little presentation. Trust me, you will like it. It has nothing to do with spirituality, but you will be amazed, honestly. he does talk about imagination.

    I'm not sure, to be frank.
    I probably intuited that you might find some insight in the matter which I am totally unfamiliar with.
    I've heard some stories but never paid much attention, I must confess.
    But I am glad you found it interesting.
