Have OBE's changed your views on death? [Survey]

Post by Samwise » March 9th, 2016, 12:19 pm

Have you ever had an NDE, OBE or other non-ordinary experience that altered your views or understanding of death? If so The States of Consciousness Research Team at Johns Hopkins would like to hear about it. This team is doing amazing work and is worthy of support, and any feedback would be much appreciated.


Dear Friends,

The States of Consciousness Research Team at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine needs your help. We are conducting an anonymous online survey of Near Death Experiences (NDE's), Out of Body Experiences (OBE's) or other non-ordinary experiences that fundamentally altered beliefs or understanding about death and dying.

If you have ever had such an experience, we would greatly appreciate it if you would take our survey. If you know of others who have had such an experience please send them the link and encourage them to participate. This includes people who had such an experience long ago.

Although the survey could take 30+ minutes (the time length can vary based on how much you choose to reply to open-ended questions), we believe you may find this survey interesting.

REASONS TO TAKE THE SURVEY:

1. The survey is an opportunity to revisit and contemplate a significant and possibly transformative experience.
2. You may find it meaningful to further explore some of the philosophical implications of your experience.
3. You will be making a unique and important scientific contribution.

We deeply appreciate your help. Thank you.

Hi fairyana,

My pleasure, it is exciting times with regard consciousness research, and the Johns Hopkins team in particular are doing some really interesting stuff. I met one of the head researcher's at a conference in London last summer...he is every bit the rational data crunching scientist, but he has had his own direct experience of the great mystery of consciousness through his own experiences with Siddha yoga, which put him on this path. Such a lovely man, I've been doing my best to help get the word out about his team's research where I can, and in this particular instance it seems to me that the OBE community could have a very valid and important contribution to make. But yes I'll be very interested to hear what they find out from this.

:)

Hi peeps, I've been in recent email contact with Prof Roland Griffiths, head of the consciousness research team at Johns Hopkins behind this study (I've met him, great chap), and they're having trouble making up the numbers data wise from this survey...he provided some more information on it that I've updated the OP with...I know any and all survey feedback would be very much appreciated by him and his team.

Hi y'all, I just heard from the head of the consciousness research team at Johns Hopkins and he made a final request for help getting the word out regarding this survey...500 people have completed it so far but they are seeking 1,000 participants for sound statistical analysis of the data...an ambitious number I know! Any further feedback or help spreading the word I know would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
