Do You Believe in Reincarnation? Boy Gives Detailed, Verified Information About Past Life

Do You Believe in Reincarnation? Boy Gives Detailed, Verified Information About Past Life 86

By Tara MacIsaac, Epoch Times

If you heard a child give detailed information about a dead man’s life that he could not seemingly have known through normal means, would you believe he is that man’s reincarnation?

Psychologist Dr. Erlendur Haraldsson, professor emeritus at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, has long studied reincarnation. He has highlighted a case he began investigating in 2000 in which a boy named Nazih Al-Danaf gave many correct details about his purported past-life incarnation.

Dr. Haraldsson worked with a local researcher, Majd Abu-Izzeddin, in Lebanon to interview the boy’s family members and the family of the deceased man Nazih may have been. All witnesses were interviewed multiple times several months apart, and the story remained by and large the same. The most striking testimony came from the dead man’s wife, who tested the boy’s knowledge of her life with her husband.
First Talk of Another Life

At the age of about one and a half, Nazih told his mother, “I am not small, I am big. I carry two pistols. I carry four hand-grenades. I am ‘qabadai’ (a fearless strong person). Don’t be scared by the hand-grenades. I know how to handle them. I have a lot of weapons. My children are young and I want to go and see them.”

He used words his parents didn’t expect him to know at that age, showed an unusual interest in cigarettes and whisky, talked of a mute friend who had only one hand, said he had a red car, and said he died when people came to shoot at him. He said he was taken in an ambulance to the hospital, and was given an anesthesia shot in his arm on the way. He asked to go to his home in Qaberchamoun, a small town that is about 10.5 miles (17 kilometers) away.

Nazih has family near Qaberchamoun, but had never been in the town itself and didn’t know anyone from the town. After years of pestering, his parents finally took him to Qaberchamoun when he was 6 years old, in 1998. Some of his sisters went too.

Finding the House, Talking to His ‘Wife’

They arrived at an intersection of six roads in Qaberchamoun. Nazih pointed to one and said to follow it. He then instructed his father to wait for the next fork in the road, then go up to where his house is. His father, Sabir Al-Danaf, did as the boys said. He was eventually forced to stop the car, because the road was wet and became difficult to drive on. Nazih jumped out and ran on ahead. His father followed him, and the women got out to talk to a local man while waiting for Nazih and Sabir to return.

As the women described what Nazih had told them, the man was stunned. The details matched his deceased father. Dr. Haraldsson interviewed this man, Kamal Khaddage, whose father, Fuad Assad Khaddage, had died many years earlier.

Nazih was unable to recognize any of the houses ahead, so he and his father returned to the car. Khaddage asked his mother, Najdiyah, to come speak to the boy. Having heard that the boy may be her husband’s reincarnation, she tested him.

She asked him: “Who built the foundation of this gate at the entrance of this house?” Nazih replied: “A man from the Faraj family.” This was correct.

She asked him: “Who built the foundation of this gate at the entrance of this house?” Nazih replied: “A man from the Faraj family.” This was correct.

She asked him if she had had any accident when they were living at the house in Ainab. Nazih said she had dislocated her shoulder one morning. He took her to the doctor when he got home from work, and she had a cast on for a while. This was correct.

She asked him if he remembered how their daughter, Fairuz, had become ill. He said, “She was poisoned from my medication and I took her to the hospital.” This was correct.

Nazih went to a particular cupboard of his own accord and said that that’s where he had kept his weapons, though none were in there at the time. That was where Fuad had kept his weapons. The boy asked Fuad’s widow if she remembered how their car had stopped twice on the way from Beirut and Israeli soldiers had helped them start it again. This had indeed happened. The boy mentioned a barrel in the garden he used to teach his wife to shoot, and ran out to see if it was still there. It was.

Najdiyah showed Nazih a photograph of Fuad and asked: “Who is this?” The boy replied: “This is me, I was big but now I am small.”

Psilocybin mushrooms sprout in the blood of an ‘experimental’ patient

Psilocybin mushrooms sprout in the blood of an 'experimental' patient 99

US doctors described the story of a man who tried to relieve depression with psilocybin mushrooms in an unconventional way. He injected an intravenous infusion of mushrooms, causing the mushrooms to continue to multiply in his blood and cause multiple organ failure. The case was reported in the Journal of the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry.

Many drugs that people traditionally use as psychedelics are increasingly becoming the focus of medical attention. Some of them have already been repurposed and started clinical trials: for example, micro-doses of LSD have proven to be at least safe in the case of Alzheimer’s disease, and psilocybin has helped patients with  migraines and  depression. Often in such experiments we are talking about microdosing – that is, the mass of the substance is not enough for a psychoactive effect.

The story of an American who decided to experiment on his own was described by doctors led by Curtis McKnight of Creighton University School of Medicine. According to relatives, the 30-year-old American suffered from bipolar disorder, but shortly before the incident stopped taking his prescribed medications and suffered from alternating states of mania and depression.

When he stumbled upon research on the potential benefits of psychedelics, he boiled psilocybin mushrooms and injected the filtered solution into his vein. A few days after this experiment, relatives found him in a lethargic state with jaundice, diarrhea and bloody vomiting and took him to the hospital.

Doctors discovered the patient had a problem with multiple organs at once: acute renal failure, liver damage, tachycardia, and low blood saturation and ionic imbalance. He was prescribed droppers to normalize the composition of the blood, vasoconstrictors to raise blood pressure, antibiotics and antifungal drugs. Despite this, he developed septic shock and DIC (excessive blood clotting) and needed plasmapheresis. Only eight days later he was discharged from the intensive care unit, and at the time of publication of the article he had already been in the hospital for 22 days.

In the patient’s blood tests, in addition to the Brevibacillus bacteria , there were also Psilocybe cubensis fungi  – the same ones from which he injected himself intravenously. Apparently, due to insufficient filtration of the solution, the fungi entered the bloodstream and multiplied there, causing intoxication and multiple organ failure.

The authors of the work note that this is not the first such case – at least in the 80s of the 20th century, doctors already described a patient with similar symptoms after an intravenous injection. Therefore, McKnight and coauthors warn their colleagues: since psychedelics are increasingly used as a medicine (at the end of 2020, they began to legalize it in the United States), it is important to remind patients of the inadmissibility of self-therapy. Intravenous administration can be dangerous – doctors still do not know if it has the same psychoactive effect as the classical methods of administration.

A part of a person’s essence accompanies him throughout his life: this is confirmed by a brain scan

A part of a person's essence accompanies him throughout his life: this is confirmed by a brain scan 101

A new method of scanning the human brain has produced amazing results. It turns out that in every person there is a certain part of his essence, which accompanies him all his life from the moment of birth to death.

Scientists believe that this is the core of a person’s self-awareness. It combines memories of the past with fleeting sensations of reality and provides a basis for anticipation of events in the future.

It turned out that a certain part of a person’s consciousness is consistent as they grow older and older.

For centuries, scientists and philosophers have been interested in the question: can this sense of “personal self” be stable throughout life? A new psychological study with the results of a brain scan made it possible to conclude that a certain part of a person’s consciousness really accompanies him throughout his life.

It is consistent as it gets older and older. Miguel Rubianes, a neuroscientist at the Complutense University of Madrid, says the aim of the study was to answer the question: Are we the same person throughout life? In combination with the results of other studies, scientists have concluded that there is a certain component that remains stable from birth to death.

The other part of consciousness remains susceptible to current changes. The scientists recognized independence as the basis of identity. And every time a person uses the word “I”, he means a thread that connects together all the events and experiences that have occurred in life.

Experience gained over the years changes a person, changes the components of his identity. Each case associated with personal experiences, a broken heart, a successful career step, expected or unexpected failure lead to the fact that a person compares himself to himself before and after these events. It is a neurological programming scheme that involves visual self-knowledge as an indicator of connection with your impressions of yourself.

This effect makes it possible to cope with memories and recognition of information when it is associated, for example, with one’s own photograph of an infant. Although this principle has a lot of evidence, scientists believe that the very mechanism of the brain involved in this remains a mystery.

This study was published in the journal Psychophysiology.
