Great Quote from Eben

“Love is, without a doubt, the basis of everything. Not some abstract hard-to-fathom kind of love but the day to day kind that everyone knows -the kind of love we feel when we look at out spouse and our children, or even our animals. In its purest and most powerful form, this love is not jealous or selfish, but unconditional. This is the reality of realities, the incomprehensibly glorious truth of truths that lives and breathes as the core of everything that exists or ever will exist and no remotely accurate understanding of who and what we are can be achieved by anyone who does not know it, and embody it in all of their actions-

"My coma taught me many things. First and foremost, near-death experiences, and related mystical states of awareness, reveal crucial truths about the nature of existence. And the reductive materialist (physicalist) model, on which conventional science is based, is fundamentally flawed. At its core, it intentionally ignores what I believe is the fundament of all existence — the nature of consciousness."
