Well, you may not have received some "greater powers", Ken, but I'm happy you are still alive to participate in this interesting conversation we are having. What a horrible accident! How long did it take you to recover? Did you see it as an accident, or do you believe it was a predestined incident. (That topic can definitely lead to some "heated" discussions!) It is so interesting, though, when people acquire sudden savant like abilities or such after an accident or stroke. Darold Treffert touched on that topic in his book: https://www.amazon.com/Islands-Geni...=1495154914&sr=8-1&keywords=islands+of+genius. Really fascinating reading. Most of the book is about savants, but he does look at sudden savant abilities, as well as savant abilities in individuals who do not have the disabilities of a savant. Of course, acquiring new abilities, including psychic ones, is often touched on in NDE books, too. I can certainly believe someone who had an NDE had "happenings" or newly acquired abilities after the NDE, but it depends on what the person says or writes, and if I believe the person is telling the truth or not. I'll tell you right now, though, if you came across like a narcissist in a book on the topic, like Eben Alexander did, I wouldn't believe a word you said! You know, at least one of the medical doctors who reviewed his book at Amazon did state that Dr. Alexander obviously was left brain damaged by his e-coli illness. Others, though, expressed the belief that he was just a "down and out" physician. I personally felt for sure he was a brain surgeon looking for a new day job, and he hoped those who read metaphysical books were going to help financially support him for the rest of his life.
