Dr Eben Alexander III, a brilliant academic neurosurgeon, recently became recognized for his claims that heaven exists. His publication Proof of Heaven (2012) documents his experience. His cortex had shut down (according to medical reports, CT scans and neurological examinations) after his contracting rare bacterial meningitis, which was eating his brain. According to medical understanding of the brain and mind at this time, there is no possibility that Dr Alexander had even the minutest level of consciousness. Yet, he did.
Dr Alexander had always been a skeptic and adamant about consciousness being seated in the human brain. Like many other pure scientists, he rationalized near-death experiences from brain trauma as wishful thinking. This was his reality until November 2008. He had been in a coma for seven days and as the doctors decided to switch off the ventilator, he awoke.
He later recounted his cosmic experience of being beyond the universe and feeling the intense Love and Unity of everything. Dr Alexander also reported communication with higher intelligences beyond language.
The Introduction to The Keys of Enoch® mentions the importance of the scientists being shown that science and spirituality are one. This experience beyond the norm has convinced Dr Alexander that what he experienced exists and was no dream or vision. He tells us in his book Proof of Heaven:
- “A sound, huge and booming like a glorious chant, came down from above […] Seeing and hearing were not separate in this place where I now was. I could hear the visual beauty of the silvery bodies of those scintillating beings above and I could see the surging joyful perfection of what they sang.”
- Seeing sounds and hearing color is known as synaesthesia. This is a perception of sensations in a cross-referential manner, which is associated with higher spiritual worlds, as documented in Exodus 20:18.
- The Keys of Enoch detail this more in Key 2-0-7 as a description of the Language of Light: 44 Thus, as the soul evolves from the earth’s evolution through the many spatial dimensions, it changes its language from the vibrations of sound to the Language of Light operating on a higher frequency of Light. And this key is fulfilled when Man is given the language of instruction necessary to take him through Alpha and Omega from the Seventh Ray of Light Creation into the Eighth Ray, the opening of the gates of the New Heavens.
What Dr. Alexander heard and saw does give us an understanding of what we will experience in the higher worlds as the Language of Light. It is not angels playing on trumpets, but vibrations of hearing and participating in a higher coding mechanism, a movement of harmony that is beyond even that which is known as the “music of the spheres.” These vibrations are part of the greater Light that creates and sustains Life.
The chant is that associated with the Kodoish hymn that is the revealed code existing in the higher worlds and within every part of the Creation — it is the key to the symphony of Life. In Key 3-0-5: 32 we are told of the joy of this chant that explodes into song around the throne. Moreover, we learn that the “song of joy” is not a song for the audible ear, but for the inner spiritual ear. This celestial music is churned also by a vast array of colors. In the heavenly realms, this is the hymn of the heavenly hierarchy in service to Divine Creation.
