Extrasensory Perception, Near-Death Experiences, and the Limits of Scientific Knowledge
Becker, C. B.
If mental states can influence the external world, or if alternate dimensions of reality are accessible only in certain mental states, then important aspects of the universe are unknowable with current scientific tools. Near-death studies suggest that both those conditions may occur. Thus the exploration of NDE-like phenomena requires a radically new scientific paradigm.
