In his facinating book “Proof of Heaven – A neurosurgeon’s journey into the Afterlife”, Eben Alexander M.D., describes his mystical encounter and dialogue with “OM” – a being who spoke to him of extradimensional universes and the topic of “love”, while he lay in a coma for 7 days in a hospital bed.
A coma (κῶμα koma, meaning “deep sleep”) is a state of unconsciousness lasting more than six hours, in which a person: cannot be awakened; fails to respond normally to painful stimuli, light, or sound; lacks a normal sleep-wake cycle; and, does not initiate voluntary actions. A person in a state of coma is described as being comatose.

“Through the Orb, Om told me that there is not one universe but many – in fact more than I could conceive but that love lay at the center of them all”, he said (pg 48).
“Love is without a doubt, the basis of everything. Nothing abstract, hard to fathom kind of love, but the day to day kind that everyone knows the kind of love we feel when we look at our spouses and our children, or even our animals. In its purest and most powerful form, this love is not jelous or selfish but unconditional. This is the reality of realities, the incomprehensibly glorious truth of truths that lives and breathes at the core of everything that exists or that ever will exist and no remotely accurate understanding of who and what we are can be achieved by anyone who does not know it, and embody it in all of their actions”, said Drr. Alexander (pg 71).
