The Final Choice: Playing the Survival Game

Grosso, Michael

 The purpose of this "sketch of a New Age Metaphysics of Death and Enlightenment" is to "draw a picture of Mind at Large and to show how that concept may relate to our survival, both here and hereafter" (p. 6). It is in 6 parts. The first presents an outline of the idea of a modern deathcraft or art of dying. Part Two deals with research on survival and stresses the importance of a synoptic view of psi, survival research, altered states, and biological theory. Part 3 attempts to show that the OBE is a way in which we explore the fringes of Mind at Large. Part 4 is about near-death phenomena, which are important routes to Mind at Large. He shows that there is a general mechanism, triggered by near death, that may work in any crisis of transformation. In Part 5, NDEs are viewed as "part of a larger class of apparitional phenomena whose function is to assist, reassure, guide and direct individuals, or groups of individuals, in times of crisis" (p. 8). These he calls Messengers from Mind at Large. Part 6 is on the possibility of global near-death and transformation. There is much in this book about the meaning and significance of parapsychological phenomena.
