What an excellent video interview with Dr Pim Van Lommel. Near-death experiences seem to be a lot more common than we are aware of. Now in this new age people who have long held their experiences silent due to social pressures and stigmas are speaking out and sharing their valuable knowledge.
Thank you to all those who speak out and share. I hope more and more individuals in our societies will do likewise and give humanity their much needed wealth of experience. Experiences when assessed in their totality would unlock the minds of millions to new potentials and new ways of thinking. A magical world indeed.

Van Lommel is best known for his scientific work on the subjects of near-death experiences and consciousness, including a prospective study published in the medical journal The Lancet. He is also the author of the 2007 Dutch book titled Endless Consciousness: A scientific approach to the near-death experience (Eindeloos Bewustzijn: een wetenschappelijke visie op de Bijna-Dood Ervaring), which has been translated to German, English, French and Spanish (English translation: Consciousness Beyond Life, The Science of the Near-Death Experience”, Harper Collins, 2010).
In his book Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience, he postulates a model where consciousness is beyond neurological activities of the brain. He suggests that the brain is merely a terminal for accessing consciousness which is nonlocal (i.e. situated outside the physical body). In this model the brain is analogous to a computer terminal accessing a mainframe or the internet. He further hypothesizes that noncoding DNA and quantum mechanics would make such nonlocal access possible and this model can explain how near-death experiences can be experienced and remembered by people whose brain had no measurable activity.
Van Lommel studied medicine at Utrecht University, specializing in cardiology. He worked as a cardiologist at the Rijnstate Hospital, Arnhem, for 26 years (1977-2003).
