His position was not a religious one, but represented what Robert Almeder, professor emeritus of philosophy at Georgia State University, calls the minimalistic reincarnation hypothesis. Almeder states the hypothesis this way:
There is something essential to some human personalities ... which we cannot plausibly construe solely in terms of either brain states, or properties of brain states ... and, further, after biological death this non-reducible essential trait sometimes persists for some time, in some way, in some place, and for some reason or other, existing independently of the person's former brain and body. Moreover, after some time, some of these irreducible essential traits of human personality, for some reason or other, and by some mechanism or other, come to reside in other human bodies either some time during the gestation period, at birth, or shortly after birth.

1. What are your thoughts as you reflect on the difference between mind and brain?
2. The idea of our consciousness existing outside of us as part of One Consciousness may be an intriguing, new, or even distasteful idea to you. What are some of your initial thoughts?
3. Eben shifted in his ideas of prayer because of his Near Death Experience and spiritual journey. Have your ideas of prayer shifted over time? and how?
4. Have you or someone you know ever experienced any kind of miraculous healing that seemed to happen because it was spiritual in nature? (details)
5. If it could be true that you choose to come back to earth to learn new lessons as a human, what might some of those lessons be?
Thank you for listening. This episode may have been a strange one if you've never heard anything like this before. I hope that if nothing else, Eben's story gives us all a chance to pause and think about the miracle of life we are experiencing right now and the courage to live every moment to the fullest.
