"After listening to my interview on Skeptiko, my friend Barbara Whitfield wrote me about it. I had referred to her in the interview as the woman who got almost a third of the CMPEs we recorded in the pilot study. Quite remarkably, out of 16 CMPEs recorded by 17 participants, 5 of those were Barbara’s.
One of the things that came up in the interview was my claim that CMPEs are best explained as coming in some sense from God. Barbara said that whatever is talking to us in CMPEs has the same quality as what spoke to her in her near-death experience—which she identifies as God."
