Are All People in Comas Aware?

It’s now the middle of January, and I’ve made significant inroads with my documentary film.  I submitted a video pitch for a podcast that would provide funds of over $10,000.  I’ve secured a world-renowned cardiologist who researches near-death experiences, although it’s contingent on my submission being accepted.  I also secured an interview with Paul Friedman, author of the unconditional love theory that guides my every action.  I’ve sent my friend who had multiple near-death experiences, who I mentioned last week, a lighting, microphone, and tripod kit for her cell phone as that’s her only means of recording.  At the very least, she’ll have better tech when she records her near-death experiences with other interviewers.

In addition to the podcast submission, I was prepared to make a submission for $150,000 to make a feature documentary film that I entertained playing in independent theaters, selling to a news broadcaster, or getting a distributor to pitch the documentary to Amazon Prime.

However, this idea emerged from the intention to make documentaries for Angel Studios.  I created the first sketch of the storyboard for a 10-minute concept video pitch for documentary film funding from Angel Studios.  I have all the music and the themes for the sections and built out the voiceover for the first of six scenes.  It’s so beautiful so far, and I know it’s not me creating this, as I didn’t have the skills.  It’s the higher power (in my case, Jesus) and ChatGPT!

I started reading a book called A Course on Miracles, where the author said she just wrote what she heard in her head.  She claims she didn’t author it herself, although she wrote it.  She claimed Jesus wrote it.  I thought that was farfetched, but now I have that same eerie (but splendid) feeling.  I hope by talking about it, the momentum doesn’t go away.

The film will examine quantum physics, scientific materialism, and the nonlocality of consciousness, according to author Pim van Lommel, if I’m so fortunate.  It’s going to tie the nonlocality of consciousness to the near-death experience of unconditional love and to the requirement that educational systems need a new philosophical paradigm that extends beyond materialism—that introduces the concept of the nonlocality of consciousness (the soul) and ties it to the practical theory of how to love unconditionally, as taught by author Paul Friedman.

I’ve begun reexamining van Lommel’s book Consciousness Beyond Life.  What revelations are blocked by the materialistic paradigm that dominates scientific thought in academia? And how many lives undergo suffering because we don’t recognize the extent of their potential? Or even that they are conscious?

In van Lommel’s book, he talks about a study where people in comas were told to imagine an activity, like playing a sport.  The monitor showed that people in comas responded the same as regular people.  When my friend’s child had a brain tumor erupt and went into a coma, the doctor labeled her a vegetable.  But I knew she was highly aware.  That’s because she could blink once to respond yes and twice to respond no to questions I asked, a trick I learned in my Community Rehabilitation class, a class premised on advocacy for people with disabilities.  I thought this little girl was just an exception in her lucidity, but no, all people labeled as vegetables may be as aware as us, just unable to express it, according to this study.  I also watched a near-death experience video today where a person in a coma had a trip to heaven and then to hell during a state of altered consciousness.  It’s testimony that consciousness is not a physical entity.  According to the theory of author Paul Friedman, consciousness (or the soul) is separate from the body and the mind. If that’s the case, shipping people labeled as vegetables to institutions is morally wrong! These people are just as aware as you and me, just unable to articulate it physically.

I believe these people aren’t vegetables at all.  They’re just as awake as all of us.  They can’t communicate their lucidity to us unless we find workarounds, like blinking eyes or technology.  And if they’ve got this commonality, how much potential might these people have if given the right input?  I believe it’s infinite potential!  My friend’s child, whose doctor and family I had to argue with to convince that she wasn’t a “vegetable,” made it past grade two, the last I heard.
