Scott Olsen - NDEs and Self-transformation: Life-Changing Illumination as Humanity's Ultimate Goal

The Near-Death Experience often results in a powerful, life-changing transformation of consciousness. This metamorphosis of "Self" occurs as former notions of ego or self are dissolved into an integrated, wiser and more virtuous sense of Self. Such transformative after-effects are profound, long-lasting, and may well be a stage in the fulfillment of one's ultimate destiny. I propose a philosophical framework in which NDEs and their transformative consequences are understood as special limiting cases of the ultimate human experience of Enlightenment, Samadhi, or Illumination. My primary concern is with the Knowledge aspect, or the limiting case of Omniscience. I will focus on the experiences of Tom Sawyer, Olaf Sunden, and others whose consciousness was forever transformed. The philosophical framework will stress three factors: (1) The underlying alchemical, transformative nature of all life and consciousness. (2) David Bohm's view that "the entire Universe is enfolded into each part." (3) The fractalized, self-similar patterns present at all levels and scales, allow for a resonance to occur, in which the individual can be in "attunement" with the "Wisdom of the All." Together these three factors allow for a life-changing Transformation, Metamorphosis or Illumination of Consciousness, that well may be the ultimate goal of humanity.
