Apparition in the ER? What the Husband & Doctor Saw

Jeffery Olsen suffered a tragic car accident that claimed the life of his wife Tamara and their young son. In this excerpt from his book KNOWING, Jeffery Olsen describes what happened after the accident and the conversation that took place between him and his wife as they stood at the threshold of life and death:
 
I was not aware of anything beyond a few feet around me, but I knew I was in a different place. This was a place of joy. It was familiar. It was home. It felt real, but I was not injured. I was not a floating orb or ethereal energy; I was myself. The same as I had always been, only now bathed in this familiar and amazing light. My natural senses were magnified to a greater degree. There were a million questions racing through my head, but as soon as I focused on one, its answer was immediately there. There was an ancient awareness, as if I had always been in this place.

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath, experimenting. There was no pain in my chest. I took another and became even more aware, as if waking up from a dream. Then I felt a familiar touch. When I opened my eyes, Tamara was right next to me. She was real, too; I could feel her. She was alive. I could feel her familiar vibration even more powerfully than her physical presence.

That’s how we see, smell, hear, taste and feel. But I am talking about a sixth sense, one in which information is passed silently from brain to brain, as in extrasensory perception or during shared-death experiences. I have seen this form of communication in my own life and in the lives of others, and can tell you that it happens. Brains can communicate with one another although I truly don’t know if it is brains that do this --or that thing  known as the mind. Or. . . .?

In my own life, I experienced this brain communication when my mother died. And although it wasn’t a direct communication with her, it was communication through another person. Here’s what happened:

About 30 minutes before my mother died, I received a telephone call from Vernon Neppe, MD, the then director of neuropharmacology at University of Washington. I had once worked on a book project with Neppe about his fascinating research on déjà vu, but had not communicated with him for several years, so this call was no more expected than what he had to say.

 “Something strange happened this morning,” he said, sounding quizzical. “I was reading the newspaper and a voice came to me that said, ‘Call Paul Perry.’ I ignored it and a few minutes later it happened again, ‘Call Paul Perry.’ So here I am. What’s going on?”
