Basic Necessities

International Association for Near Death Studies- one of the most comprehensive sites regarding this topic

Institute of Noetic Studies - The Institute of Noetic Sciences, founded in 1973 by Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research, education, and membership organization whose mission is supporting individual and collective transformation through consciousness research, educational outreach, and engaging a global learning community in the realization of our human potential. OK then...not sure about the overall mission, but certainly offering some intriguing views about science and spirituality.

Amit Goswami - is a retired U of O physics professor who has decided to take his beliefs in quantum theory and spirituality to the next level- "Quantum Activism." Great stuff.

Two of the best debate the topic of Spirituality-vs-Science.
War of the Worldviews: Science Vs. Spirituality
By Deepak Chopra (renowned spiritual philosopher) and Leonard Mlodinow (renowned physicist)

Worth Watching

Far more interesting and comprehensive than either "I Am" or the infamous "What the *Bleep* do we know?," Roger Nygard's "The Nature of Existence" is one of the most entertaining documentaries on the "big questions" of our existence. Take a look at his "85 Questions" section to be able to add your own input into the big questions, while looking at other people's slants.

Top Documentary Films is a great place to watch a huge variety of top documentary films online.

START HERE... A very well produced "starter" documentary by the BBC on Near Death
The Day I Died -

A MUST see, are several of the episodes of the amazingly open minded Science Channel series, "Through the Wormhole" including the episodes
Through the Wormhole: Is there Life after Death? (GREAT stuff!)
Through The Wormhole: Is there a Sixth Sense? (interesting info on quantum co-location)
Through The Wormhole: Is There A Creator? (where Stephen Hawking proves himself to be close-minded and gives an ambiguous explanation of before the Big Bang).
Through the Wormhole: Does Time Exist? (Does it or not? It's all relative...)

GREAT BBC Documentary called Faster than the Speed of Light? That gives a very clear, easy to understand overview of the recent CERN discovery.

Worth Pondering

Lynn McTaggart, Author of books about zero point field and spirituality such as "The Field" and "The Intention Experiment" is someone who I still can't get a full bead on. She started out as an investigative reporter, and is now bordering on an exploitative New Age guru. You can read and watch her in action, and make up your own mind.

The Intention Experiment

The Monroe Institute is one of the premier and longest standing organizations dedicated to using TMI (The Meditation Institute) as a means of enlightenment and world change. On the fence about these guys I am always leery of those who charge great sums of money to learn the answers...on a multilevel basis. Still...interesting.
