    of how a psychiatrist or neuropsychologist would explain away what was neurologically happening while you were in a medically induced coma. And then I canceled out the comment entirely because I do not want to induce doubt on what you remember, saw, felt or realized from it.

    You see I am a scientist heavily grounded in biology, neuro chemistry and social science. But I've also had a few "spiritual" experiences myself so I will not try negate or minimize what happened to you by trying to explain it away scientifically. My late father, who was also a psychologist and a self described agnostic, was put in a medially induced coma when he had to be put on a ventilator in January of 2008. He came out of it with some doubts on his choice to be an agnostic. What happened to him was not religious at all but rather spiritual.

    I want to hear the rest of it. I read all 5 episodes and I really, really want to hear the rest of it. If you are having problems with the last parts, it really might help to coordinate your memories and put things together on paper. I cannot stress this enough as there is a measurable, neurochemical, physiological process that occurs when trying to retrieve memory in this manner. Seeing your own words in your own handwriting often helps to prompt more clarity and accuracy in memory retrieval. If you don't think this will work, try drawing a picture of your memories or use something like a flow chart and see if that works to prompt your memories and/or help you organize the memories.

    If you would, send me a message when you get the next episode written and posted.
