80% of these patients (many of whom were blind from birth) were able to see during their near death experience.
These accounts show that patients who do not have the physical capacity to see – report visual data accurately about their experiences during clinical death. Some of this data is veridical (highly unusual and therefore difficult to guess).
Given the insurmountable difficulties of explaining this phenomenon physically (hallucinations, narcotics, oxygen deprivation, etc. – see below Section IV), it corroborates the likelihood of transphysical existence after clinical death.
Furthermore, it shows the possibility of transphysical causes not only of consciousness, but also of vision, hearing, and memory.
No adequate physical explanation has been offered for the visual perception of blind people during clinical death as will be discussed in Part IV.
