The phenomenon of life after deathis defined as continuation of human personality existence in any form after death of physical body over a period of time. From the parapsychological point of view, this phenomenon has a lot of manifestations, among which are:
— Near-death experience – term that joins the whole spectrum of human experience upon premortal condition (or upon clinical death) or feelings of people, who have a narrow shave.
— Out-of-body experience (OBE) – a type of spontaneous or induced experience upon which one recognizes himself at a certain distance from physical body.
— Reincarnation – form of life after death, upon which human soul incarnates in new human being after death of physical body.
— Apparitions (ghosts) – visually perceived images of deceased humans.
— Mental mediumship – type of mediumship, which manifests in direct mental communication between medium and inhabitants of nonmaterial-spiritual world.
Abovementioned phenomena form the objective field of studies performed at Laboratory of survival study – one of the few European laboratories performing researches on survival topic.
The main goal of laboratory activity is an encyclical interdisciplinary study of life-after-death phenomenon (and related phenomena), as well as its effect on human lives, worldviews, vision of life, death and sense of life.
Directions of laboratory activity:
— Performance of researches of life-after-death and survival-related phenomena, including assistance for other research groups.
— Popularization of currently available information about results of multiyear investigations of survival-related phenomena.
— Consulting and support for people, who have near-death experience.
— Gathering of reports from people, who have memories about past lives, experience of near-death state, encounter with apparitions or out-of-body experience.
— Adaptation of the main scientific journal on life-after-death phenomenon, – “Journal of Near-Death Studies” – for Russian-speaking population.
At the moment, the laboratory has established the primary collaboration with International Association for Near-Death Studies – world leading organization in the field of near-death experiences study.
