warning Harry Hone's heart stopped beating for two minutes.
For two minutes he left his body - the "house" he lived
in, and journeyed back in time to where he originated and
lived before he entered his body at the moment of birth.
The Light at the End of the Tunnel
is an account of his unique odyssey to where we all go when
we "die", and an epic revelation of the "place" where we
all come from in the "beginning."
The following is

efforts by nurses to revive him, Hone felt his spirit being
drawn out of his body by a very powerful but gentle magnet
