In the NDE video entitled Shadows: Perceptions of Near-Death Experiencers, Paul Carr describes his near-death experience when he slipped and fell on a bottle of cooking oil which rearranged his internal organs.

They're running around trying to figure out what's wrong with me. I'm laying there on this table and it gets worse and gets worse. I drop farther and father. Finally, it felt like I was just sort of folding in on myself. I just kind of went - boooop. I went way down inside myself and then suddenly I just wasn't there anymore.

I was spinning sideways somehow through this tunnel. At first it was very dark, then it seemed like there was these streaks. I was falling but I wasn't. I was traveling. That's maybe more the word.

There was this big white light at the end of it. I kind of came out into this. But I don't recall ever seeing anything. But there was this one major presence there that started speaking to me in a voice that I recalled that I heard once before. That's funny, I hadn't heard this voice since I was a child and only heard it once before. It was in a life-threatening situation.

I fell off the side of a cliff and I heard, "Kick the tree away" that I was holding on to. I did that and I landed in a blackberry bush about seventy feet below and never broke a bone. I never heard that voice again. I hadn't thought about that in seventeen or eighteen years. When suddenly, this voice started talking to me. But it is the same voice. I've always referred to this entity as the "Greeter." That's the name that came to mind then and it's the only way I have to describe it today. It doesn't sound very mystical or anything, but that's what it was. It was a Greeter. It was my Greeter.

There was other entities out there. I can sense them, but I never saw them. I never saw squat. I didn't see anything. I just sensed all this. And when I say "speak", I am sure it was more of a telepathic thing than it was moving the mouth.

Anyway, we had this chat. I reviewed my life up to that point. It was kind of like in little bursts. The point of it was not to be judgmental. That wasn't it. It was just a kind of a review of what happened up to this point.

It became clear as a result of that review that a couple of things hadn't happened that were important, but that I didn't have to have them happen - at least, not in this lifetime. I can go on around a series of "light bends", if I can use that term. I'm not even sure myself what that means. I can see it in my mind's eye right now but I can't describe it. But it was like if I went around enough of those bends I couldn't come back. And that was ok.

It was really peaceful, really calm. It was real serene. It felt really warm and real comfortable. I didn't hurt and I didn't have any problems. Right at that point in my life, that was a pretty terrific thing. I mean it would be in anybody's at anytime. But, here I got the choice of being there, nice and peaceful and calm and everything, or coming back to an existence where I am getting divorced, I'm getting sued, I owe all kinds of money. I have a couple of kids at least to raise. One of them has special problems to boot and I'm not walking.
