An investigation into life after death and heaven, based on interviews and other forms of communication which appear to emanate from and support that other world. It examines whether heaven was invented for social control, and whether encounters with angels are really examples of a psychosis.
The concept of a world beyond the material world is a staple element of the collective consciousness of the human race. Two-thirds of the world's population expect to go to heaven when they die, yet its existence has never been proved. In this book, two investigators offer a survey of what life may be like after death. It discusses whether heaven was invented as an aid for social control, and whether near-death experiences are mere fantasy. Evidence is examined from many people who claim to have direct knowledge about what Heaven is like, people who believe they have visited that other world and returned to tell the tale.
