BEYOND DEATH: The Best Evidence for the Survival of Human Consciousness
Runner-up in the 2021 Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies Essay Contest.
"Does consciousness continue after death? For 150 years, scientists, doctors, and other highly qualified investigators have carefully collected evidence in hopes of answering this question. In this award-winning essay, Sharon Hewitt Rawlette analyzes the best of that evidence to date."
"Starting with third-person phenomena such as after-death apparitions, mediumship, and telephone calls from the dead and moving on to first-person phenomena like near-death experiences, memories of previous lives, and memories of the period between lives, Sharon Rawlette lays out the vast landscape of evidence for life beyond the grave. She argues that extensive cross-validation between first- and third-person evidence cripples the strongest skeptical arguments brought against each type considered alone. Ultimately, she concludes that the survival of consciousness is the best explanation for the evidence taken as a whole and considers what implications this has for our understanding of the world we live in, even while we are still on this side of death."
"Both readable and rigorous, Beyond Death is a fascinating distillation of a century and a half of afterlife research."
ABOUT SHARON HEWITT RAWLETTE
Sharon Hewitt Rawlette has a PhD in philosophy from New York University. "She is a writer and philosopher who studies extraordinary experiences and what they have to tell us about consciousness and the deeper nature of the world we live in."
Sharon writes about consciousness, parapsychology, and spirituality for both academic and popular audiences. Her foray into this area began with research on the "topic of apparent 'coincidences' - those strange, enigmatic experiences that are so often personally meaningful - for what they can tell us about the hidden workings of consciousness".

DREAMING AHEAD OF TIME: Experiences with Precognitive Dreams, Synchronicity and Coincidence
Can we see the future in our dreams?
"Renowned esoteric writer Gary Lachman has been recording his own precognitive dreams for forty years. In this unique and intriguing book, Lachman recounts the discovery that he dreams 'ahead of time', and argues convincingly that this extraordinary ability is, in fact, shared by all of us."
"Dreaming Ahead of Time is a personal exploration of precognition, synchronicity and coincidence. Lachman looks at some of the ideas about precognitive dreams of earlier explorers, J. W. Dunne, J. B. Priestley, T. C. Lethbridge, and also at Ouspensky’s ideas of a 'three dimensional time', C.G. Jung’s synchronicity, some very remarkable 'coincidences', and Colin Wilson’s notion of Faculty X, which allows us to travel to 'other times and places'.”
"Lachman's description and analysis of his own experience introduces readers to the uncanny power of our dreaming minds, and reveals the illusion of our careful distinctions between past, present and future."
