Meet up to hear Alan Hugenot: near-death experiencer, scientist, and researcher

Quarks and Gluons and Ghosts, Oh, My! 

Can Science Now Prove the Afterlife?

Through quantum physics, western science is finding ways to understand the underlying realities that give rise to religions and mystical experiences. 

Although an increasing number of medical doctors have gone on record to discuss their own near-death experiences, few “hard” scientists have done so for fear of suffering from ridicule by their peers, career discrimination or job loss.

And in or out of the field of "hard" science, very few people combine the extraordinary life experience of our speaker Alan Hugenot, who is also the founder and director of IANDS-SF. 

Join us to hear Alan recount his fascinating and highly unusual perspective as a scientist in marine mechanical engineering, author, researcher and direct experiencer of life beyond death

As a young man, he barely survived horrendous injuries in a motorcycle accident. His resulting near-death experience gave him a direct knowledge that the limited version of reality described by Newtonian physics was flawed. 

From string theory to the hunt at the Hadron Collider for the Higgs-Boson (God) particle, from supersymmetry to dark matter and energy, hear Alan's exciting summing-up of the latest research into the developments in quantum physics. These new "theories of everything" confirm a "conscious universe" in which time, space and death are all illusions.

There are monthly IANDS meetings in Marin County, Berkeley and Saratoga. Sometimes in a given month, the same speaker talks at all four meetings, and sometimes the programs are different. Check the site to be directed to each meeting.

Around 1901 Franklin St., there is on-street parking, which is often hard to find, so leave extra time if you want to park on the street.

Garage parking is available at 1776 Sacramento St. two blocks east of the church for $8 flat fee after 4 p.m.

The entrance is on Sacramento just before Van Ness Ave. as you drive west on Sacramento.

Check Muni's Trip Planner for bus and train service within San Francisco:

 "IANDS' purpose is to promote responsible, multi-disciplinary exploration of near-death and similar experiences, their effects on people's lives, and their implications for beliefs about life, death, and human purpose. Whatever the viewpoint, IANDS never supports proselytizing."

    Great, I especially liked all the researcher/science reference material and quotes. Hopefully I will be able to find some of the material online for free or at the library.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
