Welcome to this week’s episode of the Hidden Potential Podcast! In this episode, your host Sarah Saffari interviews Mark Gober. Mark gives some really interesting explanations about consciousness and its connection with the physical brain. Based on the assumption that our consciousness is abstract and exists regardless of the brain, we can start to explore its impact on the way we experience life. Some studies show that consciousness outlives the brain when we die, and that can be associated with NDEs (Near Death Experiences).
“The brain, rather than producing consciousness, appears to be more like a blindfold or a filtering mechanism, meaning, the consciousness that we have is way beyond the limited experience that we have right now.” – Mark Gober
Reports from people who went through NDEs attest that different experiences happen when we die. Examples include: veridical out of body experiences, viewing situations from a different point of view, and the concept of Life Review (seeing our lives in flashes through the eyes of people we impacted while living). All of these experiences can be really impactful on new interactions and new perspectives of who went through that.
“What we take with us beyond the body is our consciousness and the way in which we evolved.” – Mark Gober
In addition, Mark talks about some real case studies and applications about psychedelics, psychokinesis and meditations. To assimilate all of the knowledge about consciousness and the power of the brain, Mark advises people to absorb these concepts without altering their values and passions, to remember to follow their intuition and to always try to do “the next obvious thing.”
