For over a century, scientists have searched for proof that man survives death. In this book, and the BBC2 television series which it accompanies, Jeffrey Iverson looks for evidence of an after-life. Enquiries into the existence of psi powers which survive death of the brain include experiments in viewing at a distance where the odds against guessing correctly are billions to one, and the story of a team of psychics, led by a parapsychologist, who “saw” the infamous New York “Son of Sam” killer. The author delves into mediums, seances and apparitions, including the incident of the ghostly warning that may have scared a ship in the 1942 Siege of Malta. He asks whether near-death experiences are the hallucinations of a dying brain, or whether those close to death actually leave their bodies. Case studies tell how children born with birthmarks relate them to verified incidents in other lives. Quantum physicists suggest that reality may be a dimension of thought, and the author reports on scientific investigations into the nature of death and puts recent theories to a leading mystic, His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet. Jeffrey Iverson is a Royal Television Society Award winner, whose television documentaries include “The Bloxham Tapes”.
