Still nothing to report at this end. Hopefully something will happen later. No dreams either, which I think is odd.

This article by Eteponge pretty much shreds the 'sceptics' explainations for attempting to debunk near death experieces. Maybe a 'sceptic' will actually read it! Eteponge's Blog: Near Death Experiences / Out Of Body Experiences: An Indepth Examination of Veridical Evidence

And the comments point up the reservations about the claims made in respect of these experiences which neither the poster nor you bothered to consider.

If you are the kind of person who is spiritually open-minded, with no set-in-stone unshakeable personal beliefs to filter your perception of reality, then it would behoove you to take a read through many of the insightful articles and experiences on this website about the very subject:

Near-Death Experiences and the Afterlife

What an overused phrase "open minded" is. Being open minded is not as you describe above. Being open minded just means you are willing to change your opinion or world view should sufficient compelling reasons or reasoning be presented to do so.

When you say however that someone should have no personal beliefs that filter perception of reality, all you are essentially saying is "If you are the kind of person who is seriously credulous then this is the link for you.

Suffice to say I can find little in that link of note or interest, let alone credibility. Maybe you can inform me something you think particularly plausible or accurate in it and we can discuss it, but nothing there seems to fit the bill from my first look.
