Synopsis:      Most Americans believe that an afterlife exists, but unfortunately mainstream religions teach a generic faith-based view of it and mainstream science ignores the topic altogether. So people are hungry for concrete facts about the afterlife, and afterlife-related books are perennial best-sellers. Just this year, HarperOne published Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences by Jeffrey Long and Paul Perry, and Harper Collins published Heaven: Our Enduring Fascination With the Afterlife by Lisa Miller, both to much acclaim. But neither book answers the basic questions: Where is heaven? What is it like? and How does it feel to die? Nor do any of the many books about the afterlife answer three more basic questions: How is a solid afterlife possible? Who will make it there and who won't? and What are the rules that we must follow to have the best chance of getting there? The Fun of Dying offers detailed answers to all these questions and more in an easily read hundred pages. It also presents two study guides one brief, and one much more detailed so readers can follow the author in learning these eternal truths. It turns out that for most of us, death is the best time of our lives!

     If you wonder whether death ends life, how it feels to die, or what heaven might be like, this book is for you. If you worry about a lost loved one or fret about the death of a pet, all the answers to your questions are here. And if you are afraid of death, if you worry that your life has no meaning, or if you have given up on religions, then let this book ease some of your fears while it brings new meaning to your life.

     Nothing in The Fun of Dying is based on the teachings of any religion. Instead, it draws on more than a century s worth of evidence to explain how dying feels, how it happens, and most importantly what comes next. Accounts of near-death experiences are just a small part of the afterlife evidence! A lot of the best death-related evidence was produced in the first half of the 20th century, and it has been ignored ever since by mainstream science and mainstream religions. When it is put together with more recent discoveries, it tells a consistent and amazing story.

     The Fun of Dying is a complete account of how dying feels and what comes next. Read it, learn the truth, and apply its lessons so you can enjoy your best life forevermore.

From the Author: "I believe that I have cosmic religious feelings. I never could grasp how one could satisfy these feelings by praying to limited objects. The tree outside is life, a statue is dead. The whole of nature is life, and life, as I observe it, rejects a God resembling man."   -Albert Einstein, winner of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics
 
"I find it as difficult to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science."    -Werner von Braun, German-American rocket scientist
 
"Multiplicity is only apparent, in truth, there is only one mind . . ."   -Erwin Schrodinger, winner of the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics
 
"Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe."   -Erwin Schrodinger, winner of the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics
 
"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these."   -Jesus (JN 14:12)
 
I had an experience of light at the age of eight, and spent the next half-century figuring it out.       I tell you this only to explain why I have lived my life obsessed with death. It has been an odd hobby, but a thrilling one. By studying death, eventually I was able to explain my experience of light, but that turned out to be a side-adventure. In the process of reading hundreds of books, many of them long out of print, I came to understand the death process and its aftermath well enough to write a travelogue. I learned how death happens, how it feels, what comes next, and so much more about how reality works that I am more obsessed with death now than I ever was. 
     I didn't set out to write this whole book. What I wanted to write was Chapters 6 through 8, set in large print and illustrated, something to give dying people to help ease their fears and better prepare them for what is life's most enjoyable adventure. I soon found,though, that to write for the dying and make it remotely believable, I had to tackle the rest of this book.     It's a big story! Nearly two centuries of detailed and consistent evidence makes it easy to piece together how death happens, and why, for most of us, it is the best time of our lives. Not only is the evidence consistent with quantum physics and many religions, but it makes sense. When suddenly I understood that, the realization felt like curing cancer, achieving world peace, and discovering the meaning of life all at once.  Knowing the truth about death changes everything. 
     Although others have undertaken similar research and reached more or less the same conclusions, there are reasons why so few have written about the death event. Evidence is widely available,but it isn't easy to pull together. And to talk about dying with authority is to set oneself against those two modern bastions, mainstream science and mainstream religion, which long ago carved up all truth between them and have thereby shut out any facts that neither of them want to own.
     Then too, there is the credentials problem. I am not an attorney by profession, so I am a hobbyist and not a careerist, and there are many professional scholars who could have done a better job of writing this book. The problem is, however, that nearly all researchers have chosen some small, compelling part of what is an enormous picture and made a career out of it, each of them trying to gain some attention without drawing ridicule. After all, if you have academic credentials and if near-death experiences or past life memories or the accuracy of mediums or the zero-point field is your area, then what you hope for is recognition. What you never want is scorn.
     Sadly, though, scorn is what these researchers earn, and there are some good reasons for that which you will shortly understand. But knowing that even this field's greatest scholars have been ignored by the scientific community, I have not attempted her to make a scientific case. Instead, I am making my case to you, and using to make it the general tools that you use in your daily life and work: reason, deduction, and common sense. I am not writing for scientists. I only note in passing that for scientific gatekeepers to continue to enforce materialism as a fundamental dogma is as counterproductive now as it once was for scientists stuck in Catholic orthodoxy to insist against evidence that the sun circumnavigates the earth.Truth cannot be suppressed forever, so the academic dam is certain to break. And when it does, the revelations soon to follow about who and what and where we are will change all humanity for the better.
     It isn't only scientific oxen that we will be goring here, but some religious folks will be incensed. I am sorry about that. If you prefer to believe whatever it is that your own religion teaches, all I ask is that you be open-minded whenever your own death starts to happen. As you will see, one way to give yourself unnecessary grief is to insist on a certain kind of afterlife. But otherwise, the good news is that the afterlife is not a guessing-game. Catholics and Baptists both get into heaven. And Jews and Buddhists. And everybody else.     I have tried to pare the results of decades of research into a book so brief and so easy to read that most people will enjoy it. I have avoided footnotes because most of what is said here is supported by so many sources that to cite just a few seemed problematic. Then too, most of my research was done long before it occurred tome to write a book. So instead of presenting footnotes, I have assembled a pair of study guides in Appendices I and II so you can learn these truths for yourself. You will find there some of my favorite books, and many of them contain bibliographies, so if you wind up sharing my interest, you can spend the rest of your life reading.     The first chapter of this book surveys the available afterlife evidence and tackles some of the problems that are inherent in doing this research. Chapters 2 through 5 tie the afterlife evidence to the reality that we think we see, since for many of us the evidence seems too far fetched unless we understand how it might fit with what we know.Chapters 6 through 9 discuss the dying process and what happens to us soon after death, so if you don't share my difficulty with believing what you cannot see, then feel free to go right to Chapter 6.     This book's title may have made you wince, but the word "fun" had to be there because variants of it are so often used by the dead to summarize their dying experiences and the places where they arrived. They don't speak of the afterlife in religious terms.Instead, in countless ways they tell us that, quite unexpectedly, being dead has turned out to be a lot of fun. 
     (I should add, though, that death by suicide is the opposite of fun. If you have opened this book because you are contemplating hastening your own demise, please skip ahead and read Chapter 9. Then figure out how to get back to living.)
     It is time now --- it is long past time --- to talk about death as the adventure that it is.Learn the truth for yourself, and tell everyone you know. With 160,000 people dying daily, it is tragic that in the twenty-first century so many still die in ignorance and fear.
