Between Science and the Mind

Between Science and the Mind

These are the questions that are asked in “Souls and Science.” This series explores life’s big questions – those that until now have been matters of religion and faith – attempting to explain the unexplainable based on research and science.
Jeff, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder after a near fatal explosion in Iraq, participates in a unique experiment revealing the hidden powers within us awaiting activation.

Two-year-old Eric recalls his former life in vivid detail. A mother saves her son’s life based on a vision of his future death. Researchers attempt to measure the telepathic connection between identical twins. People from around the world talk about near-death experiences: leaving their bodies and seeing themselves dead, only to return to life shortly thereafter.

An increasing number of scientists are delving into subjects such as the power of thought, life after death and sixth sense. In “Souls and Science” ground-breaking experiments demonstrate the awesome power of the human mind.
