COMMENTARY: WHY THE 'BRAIN' IS N0T THE
'MIND' - the debate continues:
The mind/brain debate has been going for more than twenty
centuries. Historically, it is one of the most important
debates ever. Plato and Socrates in the classical age
of Greece and Descartes before the Age of Enlightenment
in Europe, promoted and accepted the duality of mind
As a psychic investigator, I state in absolute terms
there is overwhelming objective evidence that the physical
brain is not the mind. The physical brain dies when
the physical body dies, but the mind survives physical
death.To-day, without any objective evidence,
materialists claim that mind and brain are the same

"DEATH BED VISIONS"
according to Professors Osis
and Haraldsson (pictured left), "are
excellent afterlife evidence and when combined with other
afterlife research, make possible a fact-based, rational
and therefore reasonable belief in the life after death.”
Although deathbed visions can be found in the literature
and lore of all ages, they were rarely mentioned in the
scientific literature until the late 1920's, when they
were studied by Sir William Barrett, a professor of physics
at the Royal College of Science, in Dublin. You can read
online the experiences of eminent researcher Sir William
Visions - The Psychical Experiences of the Dying.
All through this century there have been books published
detailing the observations made by doctors and nurses
of dying patients. Read

phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade
than it all the centuries of its experience."
PRESENT: SCIENCE OF THE AFTERLIFE
Alan Ross Hugenot discusses his NDE.
SCIENCE: A system of outside
orthodox scientific knowledge which states,
1. At the death of the physical body,
man continues to function as a conscious being. 2. That he functions after death in a
refined spirit-body or soul which has substance and weight,
and which can be seen and photographed. 3.That this soul existed within the
physical body during life, and is organic, having mind,
nerves, blood vessels heart etc. 4.That the soul can communicate in various
ways with persons on earth both before and after death. 5. That the world in which the soul dwells
after death of the body, lies immediately around the physical
earth. 6. That a man while alive may leave
his physical body, and by the use of his soul, explore
spheres of refined physical states, commonly called the
spirit world. 7. That the spirit-body can materialize
and becomes solid as a human being on earth and can communicate
with those around him.

A REAL GEM: A MUST READ BOOK
BY AN EXPERT AFTERLIFE INVESTIGATOR
Hewat MacKenzie was a giant among afterlife investigators.
After a personal encounter with a psychic medium he
took a year's leave from his practice as a psychologist
and psychoanalyst in 1900. He spent the next 29 years
studying mediumship and experimenting with some of the
greatest mediums of the early 20th century. He devoted
his time to helping mediums including Gladys Osborne
Leonard, Franek Kluski, Maria Silbert and Eileen J.
Garrett to develop. He spent a number of years touring
and lecturing in the United States both seeking and
studying mediums. He also spent quite some time in the
middle east, Germany, Austria, and Poland for this same
purpose. He founded the British College of Psychic Science.
His book has wonderful chapters on physical
mediumship and on the afterlife. Download

WE DO NOT BECOME 'ALL KNOWING'
OVER: There are people who think that
when we cross over to the afterlife dimension we become
'all knowing and all spiritual.' No, not quite! After
we die, we are exactly the same in character and knowledge
as we were when alive. Those who have knowledge of the
afterlife will go to a hugely more beautiful world than
earth. We will still be recognisable as we were when alive
but beauty is not based on physical features but on the
brightness of the aura. We will have exactly the same
memories as before, but additionally will remember the
visits we made to the afterlife every night when we were
asleep. At first we remain at the same level of spiritual
development we were at before death - but we will all
have the opportunity to continue to learn more, to become
more spiritual in the afterlife dimension and to go to
higher, more beautiful levels.
I find there are many who are not sure
about what a life review is. It appears that once we
cross over we will have two life reviews. The first
one may happen immediately before we cross over - a
kind of fast-forward of our life which takes just a
few seconds. The second life-review is the most important.
A spiritual guide will help you to reflect on how you
did in relation to the blueprint of your life prepared
before your birth. Some lessons we would have learned,
others perhaps not yet. But the life review is a positive
way of seeing how and why you have reached your particular
spiritual stage in your soul journey.
PETS IN THE AFTERLIFE- PSYCHIC LAWYER MARK ANTHONY
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE SUPER-RICH, the billionaires,
the successful movie stars, the dictators, Prime Ministers-
on crossing over to the afterlife? Are they given special
consideration? Are there obligations on them?
Victor: It does not
matter who they were on planet Earth, whether
they were a big time name, like Angelina Jolie
and Brad Pitt - or if they happened to be a billionaire
or a powerful leader of a nation or religion. The critical
thing would be how these privileged people related to
other human beings, how much love they showed, how much
unselfish help they gave. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
are on record for doing enormous work for charities.
There will be times when on crossing over, a really
poor person would find him-herself on a higher level
in the afterlife than a selfish billionaire or a selfish
movie super star. These billionaires and celebrities
and the politically powerful are not given special consideration
at all. In fact there is a greater obligation to help
the underprivileged. We judge ourselves irrespective
of who we are - very wealthy or very poor, politically
powerful or not. This is because every unselfish spiritual
deed is immediately registered in the soul - and that
helps the soul to refine. But selfishness, greed, abuse
of power, cruelty also register in the soul but in a
So it does not matter who you are - it is how much love
you show toward others.
APRIL GROUND OF FAITH NOW ONLINE
Michael Cocks, an Anglican minster based in New Zealand,
has created a wonderful journal for open-minded Christians.
He writes in
" Because of many personal experiences, I felt motivated
to try and draw the attention of clergy in the Anglican
Church (and others) to this wonderful and confirming body
of knowledge, and so established The Ground of Faith.
I emailed invitations to read this journal to between
four and five thousand Anglican clergyman in the US, UK,
South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Eleven years
later 40 bishops and perhaps 2,000 other clergy are still
accepting reminders that the next issue can now be read.
3-4,000 individuals visit our website each month. Whatever
the details, at least it suggests that the bulk of Anglican
clergy are not hostile to what are now termed “consciousness
studies” (which includes psychic research.) Read
the April edition.

where there is despair."Indeed it does. Ian Kerry
2) It's never enough to congratulate you, Victor, and
also say how important this sort of work is. By the way,
I would also like to thank you for the reference about
Chico Xavier, in the last issue, an individual that made
my present passage make a lot of sense. Someone who was
incredibly gifted and so humble at the same time. Luis
3) For the last few days I have been depressed, thinking
that perhaps there is no afterlife, perhaps it's all an
illusion, wistful thinking, and religious is just a way
of coercing people with platitudes about God, Jesus, and
eternal reward for being good, ie being compliant. Then
I received your wonderful newsletter, and realize that
there are so many brilliant people who believe in or have
experienced the afterlife. Also, you in particular don't
have an obsession with religion that you want to force
your beliefs on people. I want to thank you for all your
hard work and effort to make the knowledge of the After
Life available to everyone. Ann.

extreme emotion accompanied it all. I couldn't focus
on anything else for the next four months. I would wake
from a sound sleep around 2 a.m., tears streaming down
my face, because I could feel what was being conveyed."
