I have not had a near death experience but I am heartened by the reports/stories of people who have. Expanding our awareness of people's experiences with death has almost no downside that I can see. They disclose a part of human experience that we know little about and which is generally shrouded in fear. I appreciated particluarly the revelation that people tended not to talk about their experiences unless they felt someone would be positive toward their story. That points to a reservoir of undisclosed stories that are out in the world waiting to be revealed for our enrichment. This is good stuff and I am glad there are people who persue this subject with passion and vigor.
