Dr. T. Lee Baumann's Near-Death and Physics Research

to the Nature of Light
study the nature of light.
The Bible speaks of light when talking about
God. Near-death experiences describe going to a
light that is welcoming, intelligent, and
loving. Strangest of all, however, is the
similarity of all these descriptions of the
nature, presence, and behavior of light to
descriptions of God. Could it be that light and
God are one and the same? Physician Lee Baumann
makes a case for exactly that. From many
sources, Dr. Baumann has synthesized a
compelling picture of what may be the true
nature of our universe at all levels - physical,
mental, and spiritual.
Lee Baumann's book
has been in the making for well over twenty
years. Following my graduation from medical
school, I developed a keen interest in quantum
physics as a result of my fascination with

noted that, of all the possible near-death
elements, the light exerted the greatest
influence on the individual. Patients
interpreted the light as a being - a being that
radiated love and warmth. Christians recognized
the light as Christ. Atheists identified the
spirit only as a guide. (Light,

accomplishes this feat is unknown, but it
appears that light has been positioned as the
cornerstone of modern physics and natural law.
Einstein explained that as an object increases
in speed, especially approaching the speed of
light, its length decreases, its mass increases,
and time slows (but the speed of light remains
constant). If an object actually reaches the
speed of light, time stops completely. Many are
not aware of the full significance of this last
point. Imagine that you are traveling at the
speed of light and time stands still. You find
that you can travel anywhere in the universe,
and you never age! Hence, it is striking, but
photons, and all other forms of electromagnetic
radiation, are timeless.
The producers of PAX TV's "Encounters
with the Unexplained"
series has released a press release dealing with
the airing of two "Heaven" television specials
which feature Dr. T. Baumann and his book, "God
at the Speed of Light." The first television
Evidence for Heaven",
aired on June 2004 and the second special, "The
Search for Heaven",
aired on September 2004.

video special discusses some of the most
fundamental questions: What happens when we die?
Is there actually a life after death? Does the
human spirit continue to survive? Is there
really a heaven?
course, the major religions of the world answer
"yes" and ask that we accept it as a matter of
faith. But in a world full of skepticism,
unquestionable faith does not seem sufficient.
But what if faith alone didn't have to carry
this burden? What if there was other proof that
Search Of Heaven" explores this provocative
question: Do new scientific discoveries and
cutting edge research actually prove the
existence of heaven? Some believe that, yes
indeed, there is now proof that heaven actually
exists. This is no religious quest; it is a
serious investigation of some rather startling
new findings. The special will include dramatic
reenactments, interviews, and comments from
numerous theological experts and scientists.
medical expert featured in the special is Dr. T.
Baumann, author of "God at the Speed of Light."
Dr. Baumann states: "I feel there is a common
element to balance the arguments for near death
and the existence of Heaven. That common element
is light ... light is omnipotent, omniscient,
omnipresent and has a consciousness."
The tone of the
special is investigative in nature and is
balanced and informative. Its objective is to
promote debate and discussion concerning this
very important subject.

Evidence for Heaven"
Evidence for Heaven" (DVD) online.
Is there a spiritual
realm where the soul resides after death? To
Christian believers, the answers to these
questions are a foregone conclusion. But, for
believers and non-believers alike, the topic of
life after death in a place called heaven raises
even more questions. Where is heaven? What will
heaven be like? Will we continue to learn in
heaven or will we instantly know everything?
Will life beyond the one we are experiencing
here and now be a life free from pain and
suffering? Will our bodies be different in
heaven? Will we be married in heaven? Is there
now scientific evidence that heaven really does
exist? All of these are just a few of the
questions answered after examining the
scientific studies, personal testimony, and
experiences of those who say they have already
traveled to heaven and back. Discover the
astounding level to which modern science has
answers to these questions.
Recent advances in
medical technology have allowed doctors to bring
people back from death and giving rise to the
near-death experience phenomenon. People are
coming back to life and bringing with them
remarkably vivid visions of heaven. They tell
about visions of a bright Light or being
surrounded by overwhelming love -- even
conversing with Jesus. The special looks closely
at several of the most astounding NDEs --
including contemporary experiences as well as
the experiences of Biblical characters, such as
the Apostle Paul, Stephen the Martyr, Elijah,

Experiences and the Afterlife
God at the Speed of Light
by T. Lee Baumann
Could it be that light and God are
one in the same? Physician Lee
Baumann makes a case for exactly
that. From many sources, Dr. Baumann
has synthesized a compelling picture
of what may be the true nature of
our universe at all levels -
physical, mental, and spiritual.
Window to God: A Physician's
by T. Lee Baumann
Dr. Baumann was introduced to the
Edgar Cayce material through the
publication of his first book, God
at the Speed of Light. Upon that
discovery, Dr. Baumann began to
research Cayce's special gifts and
the credibility of his readings,
medical and spiritual. In this book,
Baumann takes many of the medical
and spiritual readings and analyzes
them through the use of scientific
and experimental data, medical
references, quantum physics texts,
the world's major religions, and
The Akashic Light: Religion's Common
by T. Lee Baumann
In "The Akashic Light", Dr. Baumann
argues that the God of ALL religions
is the same God. Using principles of
quantum physics and comparing these
to passages from the world's
countless sacred texts, Baumann
reveals why God is always described
in terms of Light.
T. Lee Baumann's
(2 hours): Dr. Baumann's research
indicates that our world's religions have a
common origin, and that origin is the Akashic
Light of our Creator: God. Quantum physics
offers the definitive explanation for how and
why these different cultures have evolved to
view God in slightly different ways, but always
with the common denominator of Light!
God and Light the Same"
(2 hours): This presentation discusses
the extraordinary feature of light in the
near-death experience. The physical properties
of light waves are reviewed and compared to
qualities of God. Finally, references to God in
terms of light in the world's religious
literature are analyzed.
and Creation - Serendipity or Design?"
(2 hours): Evidence of design in our
universe are discussed, including the Earth's
unusual orbit in our solar system. (The Earth is
the only planet in our solar system to not fit
the exponential pattern predicted by cosmology.)
Observation and Our Perception of Reality"
(1 hour): Physics and other scientific
experiments are presented which show that human
observation is required for our reality to exist
as we know it. Properties of light waves are
examined as a primer before investigation of
(1 hour): Quantum physics
(specifically, string theory) dictates the
existence of 10 or 26 total dimensions, not the
four that we recognize in everyday life. Could
these extra dimensions be hiding the dimensions
of the spiritual and psychic worlds?
Corroboration of the Edgar Cayce Readings"
(2 hours): From his new book, "Window
to God," Dr. Baumann analyzes the Cayce readings
from a critical medical and scientific
perspective. This objective review dissects the
readings from both a skeptic's, as well as an
Quantum Examination of Light in the Edgar Cayce
(2 hours): Cayce's "Source" makes
reference to Light under two topics: the
spiritual and the physical. As for the
spiritual, Cayce's Source makes reference to God
in terms of Light, as do most religious texts
and NDEs. As for the physical, Cayce often
recommended light therapy in his readings. The
healing qualities of Light are investigated,
citing numerous current examples of modern
the Holy Grail Conspiracies"
(2 hours): Several popular books and
theologians argue that Jesus never performed any
miracles, was married to Mary Magdalene, had
children, may have never died on the cross, and
spent His last days in France. This presentation
offers the facts, citing multiple credible
religious scholars, supportive archaeological
findings, Biblical and non-Biblical literary and
