The field of near-death studies encompasses far more than someone dying in surgery and later reviving or being resuscitated. What happened to Lyn would be termed a "Near-Death-Like Experience," for she was not that close to death, at least not technically (although that could be argued). The way she has chosen to describe what happened to her is most unique - and the fact that she encountered a black aliveness. Hers was indeed a transformation of consciousness that resulted in aftereffects typical to near-death episodes (even the way she languages her story is an example of the type of abstraction experiencers often exhibit). Her use of the phrase, "an all pervading intelligence" (rather than saying "God") is noteworthy. I am hopeful that cases like hers, where a dark or black light was involved, will become more numerous. We need to spend more time with these and do more research on them. That dark or black light is extremely important in how it affects people - for the better.
