In 1976, when I was twenty-seven years old, I had a near death experience. After accidentally driving my motorcycle off a twenty foot cliff in California, I was rushed to hospital emergency room where I was pronounced dead on arrival.
Of course, the two of you, of all people, will understand the nature of what transpired next. I have perused your web site and listened to snippets of your interviews. It will probably be no surprise whatsoever that during the two hours and fifty-four minutes I remained clinically dead in the hospital and later in the morgue, I spent one hundred and fifty five active and healthful years creating art and architecture on ‘the other side.’
The paradise I found myself in was intimately familiar. I also immediately recognized my deceased grandmother, although she had transitioned from life as we know it, some thirteen years before I was born.
Much of this took place the way it did because I had come into the world in 1949 with a vivid recollection of my eternal existence in a place I call ‘Home World.’ Thus, I was not afraid. From the time I was three years old, I had been drawing and painting landscapes of this idyllic place.
Only when a hospital orderly began zipping me up in a body bag in a cold storage locker did I take a renewed breath of life back into my physical body and resume my life on Earth. To this day, I continue to render artistic images and architectural concepts that I originally recorded as memory in Home World.
Although at least eight million people are reported to have had some kind of near-death experience, few have the artistic ability to bring forth two and three dimensional representations of what they know and what they experienced. Colorful first-hand images of the places and events described on your web site seem to be conspicuously missing to someone like me, who has a God-given ability to render these representations with a true sense of joy and delight.
As one of the rare individuals who not only had a near death experience, but who also came into the world with a unique artistic gift, I would love to share my paintings and sculptures with the world you have hailed to your doorstep. Please access my web site at www.jackalexander.mosaicglobe.com and let me hear back from you. I trust you will agree that a picture speaks a thousand words.
