« We are quick to say: it's childish. This is not serious. What is childish is to imagine that by blindfolding oneself in front of the Unknown, one suppresses the Unknown. What is not serious is the sneering science of infinity. Positivism has come to want to see everything and feel everything, like idolatry. Admitting only the palpable and the visible is considered observation; it's elimination, and nothing else. »
« Soon our science will quantify the mind. We will soon have devices that will be sensitive to subtle energies. Physicists collide atoms to see what they are made of. They've already found the quarks and all that. Well one day they're going to come face to face with this little thing that holds everything together and they'll have to call it… God. »
The considerable progress made in the field of resuscitation has elicited fantastic testimonies. And at the same time, the advent of the Internet has not only made it possible to confront them, but to reinforce them with a continuous stream of authenticated cases.
It is also remarkable to note that these testimonies corroborate what the religious texts
assure us .
NDE, EMP, EMI... What is it?
« The NDE or EMP ( Experiencing Temporary Death in french), a subject well known today to the general public, are experienced by people («experiencers. ») who, following an accident or health problems, find themselves clinically dead for a few seconds or minutes before being revived. If some don't remember anything, others make strange testimonies of what they experienced during this period of time. What is interesting and what has drawn attention to the phenomenon is that these experiences, reported by people of different cultures and religions, have commonalities.
« I grew up wanting to believe in God, heaven, and the afterlife, but decades in the scientific world left me deeply doubting that such things even existed.
(...) There is a chasm between our scientific understanding of the universe and the truth as I have known it (during his NDE). Trying to share this knowledge puts me in the position of a chimpanzee who would have become human for a day.
(...) The more I read the "scientific" explanations of the NDE phenomenon, the more I am shocked by their obvious weaknesses. And yet I acknowledge with chagrin that the old "me" would have said the same if I had been asked to "explain" what a NDE is. Today as a doctor who has gone through this experience, I feel the duty to testify. »

Testimony of a mother: « Alain Joseph (the medium) says that my son repeats the word "dog" over and over again! We don't understand what this means as we don't have a dog. The next day, on my way home from work, on a hot sunny day, when I had stopped in a parking lot, what do I see taking shape on my windshield?
A dog watching me! I could clearly make out his muzzle, his eyes and his ears, even though there was no fog on the windows! This drawing, which faded little by little, proved to me that Gwen was right next to me. »
« Sometimes encounters made during an NDE (experience lived by a resuscitated patient in extremis) seem familiar but only then, looking at old family photos, does the subject recognize them. Sometimes they even meet people they believe to be alive and then learn that they are in fact dead. »

The medium, Hélène Bouvier, recounts this case: « A woman in her fifties said to me: "I am Louise...died very quickly...the heart...regrets the past...forgive me."
The very surprised client replies: "It's my sister you see, but she's not dead! Besides," he adds a little cynically, "I don't believe in survival."
A week later the gentleman informed me, apologizing, that a heart attack had struck down his sister Louise a few weeks earlier. »

« Mom, you know, dad came to the graveside to talk to me. You will tell him that it was really me in the clouds. It's beautiful, mom. »
Isabelle's husband confirmed seeing his son's face in the clouds, but he thought it was a figment of his imagination.
« Another time, Gaëlle introduces herself and says through the medium: «My brother took an exam, he failed it! »We confirm, he did pass an exam. And a few days later, we burst out laughing when our son told us he had failed. Of course, my son didn't understand anything! »
« Sometimes the information I provide to a consultant seems completely meaningless to him. But a few weeks later, he usually ends up calling me to shed light on an anecdote that has occurred in the meantime, which at first seemed incomprehensible to him. »

« Several months after her son threw himself from the top of a building, a mother sees him again in a dream, dressed in a long white dress. Looking happy, he told her this incredible, absurd sentence: "I didn't die like you think, I drowned in the Nile." A few days later she recounts this manifestation of her son to a friend, who gives this explanation: "To drown in the Nile" is an ancient expression for a happy death.
She would never have thought of it; it is therefore his son who, by this enigmatic expression, has found the way to make the authenticity of his manifestation beyond doubt. »

« The world we live in cannot be understood on its own. There is a radical incompleteness: without the intervention of spirits, gods or God, there is no coherent explanation of the world that holds. It is therefore necessary to appeal to another level of reality of which we know almost nothing… except that it must necessarily exist. »
« What we now know is that elementary particles only partially obey the laws of our space-time. A whole part of their behavior seems to be governed by laws of another order.
An order underlying ours, of which we know very little. A moving order of which the Universe as we know it would be only one of the expressions, or explanations. We could apparently only know it by the fact that it expresses itself. »

« The probability of a chance event resulting in the formation of a single protein molecule is incredibly low. In fact, it is zero. »

« The development of supercomputers has made it possible to simulate the evolution of the Universe. We can “play God”. We can modify the fundamental constants of the Universe (mass of the proton, charge of the electron, gravitational constant…) or the forces (strong or weak nuclear force…) and see what these virtual universes lead to. By varying all the combinations one can obtain an almost infinite number of different universes.
The great discovery of the last thirty years is that almost all the universes resulting from these simulations are sterile.
Thus, the evolution of the Universe depends on its initial density and its speed of expansion. The adjustment of this density, called "critical density" (because it should be neither too fast nor too slow) in relation to the speed of expansion, was necessarily incredibly precise at the origin of the Universe. In fact, it can be calculated: it is 1 divided by 10 60. This number is so incredibly small that it won't tell you anything, but Trinh Xuan Thun calculated that it corresponded to the probability for an archer to hit the center of a target located at the other end of the Universe while shooting, blind, a single arrow without knowing in which direction this target is.
Thus the atoms which are made up of electrons (negatively charged), protons (positively charged), and neutrons (neutral electrically). The electric charges of protons and electrons are exactly the same. Nobody knows why this is so but it is lucky for us because if these two charges were different even by 11 decimal places, human beings would explode because of the imbalance. As there are many more atoms in a planet than in a human body, the charges must be equal even 18 decimal places (i.e. the billionth of the billionth!) because any imbalance between the electrical charges would cause the planets to explode or the stars.
Examples of this kind can be multiplied (cf. The anthropic cosmological principle by J. Barrow and F. Tripler). And it is this multiplication that is important. The existence of fine tuning could be a serendipity. But the existence of a whole series of precise settings, independent of each other, based on the values of around fifteen constants and a certain number of initial conditions, raises formidable questions. »
« What militates so strongly against the idea of chance is the universality of perfection. The fact that everywhere you look, on any scale, you find an absolutely transcendent elegance and ingenuity. How can we believe that random processes could have built a reality whose smallest elements - a protein or a gene - are of a complexity far beyond our creative capacities? »

« I remember this doctor looking at the scans from before and after (a cancer he wasn't supposed to recover from) and saying to me "Well, there's nothing left now." I say " Really, it must be a miracle! " He says " No, it happens, we call it remission spontaneous " »
A.Einstein liked to say: « First define to me what you mean by God and I will tell you if I believe in it. » However, at the end of his life he confided: « The more I advance in the field of science, the more I believe in God. »
