Dr. Alexander was a rational nonbeliever of a Harvard University surgeon and professor until he was in a comma for a week due to bacterial meningitis that attacked his brain, leaving him on life support machines. Because his brain was out of commission for longer than in most near death experiences, he was able to ask questions of God over time, assisted in his other dimensional journeys by the spirit of his dead sister. OM, as he refers to God, taught him that there are a multitude of universes [just as String Theory physics predicts and Robert Monroe’s books on astral travel describe]. The dimensions aren’t separate; he explains, “This terrestrial realm is tightly and intricately meshed within these higher worlds.” The essence is unconditional Love: “Love and compassion make up the very fabric of the spiritual realm.” Some evil exists because without it there could be no free will or growth. Dr Alexander concluded, “Our role here is to grow toward the Divine, and that growth is closely watched by the beings in the worlds above,” “the souls and lucent orbs” which others call angels. While on the other dimensions, he felt energized by prayers of his family and friends. For skeptics that consciousness exists out of body, he recommends the book Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century.
