Richard responded to Ben's query about the best treatment of before- 
life and after-death experiences by mentioning Carol Zaleski's  
_Otherworld Journeys_. I would just add that Charles Tart has recently  
published a book, _The End of Materialism_, summing up his whole  
career of investigating paranormal/non-material phenomena. You can  
read about it at <http://www.paradigm-sys.com/end-of-materialism/index.cfm 

I've not read the book, but I know Dr. Tart and he's a serious scholar  
with a deep respect for scientific principles, falsifiability, and the  
like, so the book might move forward from Zaleski's excellent but  
dated work. Tart's position is that consciousness is non-local, but  
he's sincere in trying to find and conduct research to actually *test*  
that theory.
