Steve Alsum & Mitch Liester - Tributaries of Consciousness: From shamanism to near-death experiences

It is impossible to define the human spirit, soul, nephesh (Hebrew), pneuma and psyche (Greek), ahu and urvan (Persian), Ba (Egyptian), Shen (Chinese),...consciousness (English), because there is nothing higher by which to define it under. Since it cannot be defined, it is often ignored, or confused with psychological pulses, or thought not to exist, or cordoned off to the unprofessional designation of "woo woo" where the Twilight Zone alone welcomes it but mature culture does not. Unfortunately, patients are not treated with wholeness of being but as disparate material entities. Sadly, and to the detriment of all, death is currently defined as the cessation of the beating heart or the termination of the brain's electrical activity, rather than the continuation to another state of consciousness. Since the Enlightenment, the Western world has de-mystified all reality. We propose to use one term, consciousness, and assist in re-mystifying our world. We propose to "circumscribe" the spirit...rather than define it, using knowledge gained from shamanism, formal religions, philosophy, science, and near-death experiences.
