Have OBE's changed your views on death? [Survey]

Postby Samwise » Tue Mar 08, 2016 6:21 am

Have you ever had an NDE, OBE or other non-ordinary experience that altered your views or understanding of death? If so The States of Consciousness Research Team at Johns Hopkins would like to hear about it. This team is doing amazing work and is worthy of support, and any feedback would be much appreciated.


Dear Friends,

The States of Consciousness Research Team at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine needs your help. We are conducting an anonymous online survey of Near Death Experiences (NDE's), Out of Body Experiences (OBE's) or other non-ordinary experiences that fundamentally altered beliefs or understanding about death and dying.

If you have ever had such an experience, we would greatly appreciate it if you would take our survey. If you know of others who have had such an experience please send them the link and encourage them to participate. This includes people who had such an experience long ago.

Although the survey could take 30+ minutes (the time length can vary based on how much you choose to reply to open-ended questions), we believe you may find this survey interesting.

REASONS TO TAKE THE SURVEY:

1. The survey is an opportunity to revisit and contemplate a significant and possibly transformative experience.
2. You may find it meaningful to further explore some of the philosophical implications of your experience.
3. You will be making a unique and important scientific contribution.

Please share: http://www.deathanddyingsurvey.org/home.html

We deeply appreciate your help. Thank you.

Hi peeps, I've been in recent email contact with Prof Roland Griffiths, head of the consciousness research team at Johns Hopkins behind this study (I've met him, great chap), and they're having trouble making up the numbers data wise from this survey...he provided some more information on it that I've updated the OP with...I know any and all survey feedback would be very much appreciated by him and his team.

Thanks for the update Samwise! I'll read it over sometime soon and consider taking it.

My only beef about things like these (and this isn't a commentary on the survey or John) is that they tend to focus more on labels instead of "awareness", which I feel is a fundamental, extremely important difference.
If I don't feel that they're not already on the right track asking the right answers, then it's a bit off putting for me. :)

But as I said, I'll take an open minded look at it and see what happens! I might be pleasantly surprised! hehe

Hey Xanth, sorry for the epic comms delay! I do understand your beef here, labels can create division and over complicate or confuse matters needlessly. I guess science kinda needs these labels sometimes, at least when it comes to surveys like this trying to obtain data on subjective experiences. It's already a tough thing to study with the tools of science as it is, but Johns Hopkins are making a good go of it all the same, and having met one of the big kahunas behind this research, he seemed like a great chap and I feel him and his team are worthy of support. And I know your and everyone else's feedback in this regard would be much appreciated.

:)

Hi y'all, I just heard from the head of the consciousness research team at Johns Hopkins and he made a final request for help getting the word out regarding this survey...500 people have completed it so far but they are seeking 1,000 participants for sound statistical analysis of the data...an ambitious number I know! Any further feedback or help spreading the word I know would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
