As always, I invite comments on the class last time, which covered:
- Psychic healing (John of God, Qi Gong takes down a tumor, therapeutic touch for pain relief, keeping leaves alive, and Dr. Erik Pearl healing a woman's stiff shoulder.
- Dr. Laurin Bellg's story of her patient, Warren, whose cancer asked him what he was going to do about it.
- Dr. Raymond Moody describing shared near-death experiences. He also mentions that health-care providers back in the '70s noticed possible soul-departure signs at times of death for their patients.
- Susan Keegan mentioned signs made by [I forget the relation!] at the time of death (head knocks as of something departing) and Lee Ridgway shared her friend's photo of the cat leaving her just-dying husband, the photo showing a strong whitish wisp of... soul? streaming out of his mouth, unnoticed by the two onlookers.
- two scenes from the Scole Experiments film (The Afterlife Investigations) featuring especially some dramatic impressions made on film kept in sealed containers and developed on site as well as the goings on at Marcello Bacci's shop in Italy where the radio talks to people without befit of being turned on or of having its vacuum tubes in place -- "You tell me how is possible."
- (Did we watch the third? Anyway, please notice the synopsis of the Scole film that is also a handout for class today. We will watch the remaining Scole scenes this class. Time permitting, I will start the next documentary, Calling Earth.)
