The sudden, unexpected and unexplained death of an apparently healthy infant in its first four months of life (at most one year) is one of the most tragic human experiences for parents. Forty years of medical research on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) have yielded neither the cause of the phenomenon nor a means of predicting or preventing it, only several questionable “risk factors.”

An intuitive consensus inquiry by the Center for Applied Intuition provided a clear explanation of SIDS and a prescription for how it may best be handled by the parents, and perhaps learned from. A dozen expert intuitives affirmed that even a infant is sufficiently conscious to be able to foresee its coming life and make a personal decision whether to continue living or not—its own kind of suicide. Partial corroboration of this finding can be found in little known discoveries that establish clearly that perinatal infants possess an active awareness capable of sensation, memory and some degree of “thought.” As its consciousness withdraws from its body it succumbs to whatever physical condition is weakest, which may not be detectable. Modern medicine possesses no means for testing this non-physical explanation in its own terms, and it therefore disregards it.

SIDS is therefore a natural occurrence, not a physical disorder or an infectious disease. The usual grief, guilt and confusion of the parents, while certainly understandable, arises from a misconception of the life process itself. These symptoms may be dispelled by a more complete understanding of how and why life and death occurs in human life. The child, truly a gift of life to the parents and on temporary “loan” to them, has the same free will as they do to come and go when it chooses. Their infant is not be regarded as a “possession” to be owned or an object of emotional dependency. Their love for it need be no less from this revised perspective, but it applies to the child’s consciousness more than its body, which can indeed be lost to them.

The child’s life, just as each parent’s life, is independent and ongoing. It makes its own fundamental life choices, and it does not begin at birth nor end at death. Herein lies the principal meaning and the lesson to be learned from an infant death. Read further.

⇒  Kautz Speaks at the Annual Conference of the Society of Scientific Exploration

In May 2015 Kautz spoke at the annual conference of the Society for Scientific Exploration, and gave a presentation on how modern science must be enlarged and extended if it is become able to explain the many observed anomalies that are currently challenging its models, basic assumptions and research approach into the mysteries of our natural world. Almost all of these contradictory phenomena arise from the now well confirmed presence of the human mind in otherwise purely physical processes. The mind is presently excluded from science by its root metaphysical assumptions, yet it is obviously an inherent part of reality. A new phase of science is now slowly emerging in which the interaction of consciousness with matter must take priority, yet without removing its essential features of open inquiry, critical assessment and public validation.

⇒  New Scientific Evidence for Immortality: It’s Real!

Xenoglossy is an alleged but unproven phenomenon in which a person speaks a genuine human language with they never learned. It has  frequently been claimed have occurred but all reported instances have been unconvincing, because either the speech was not in a genuine human language or the speaker could have picked it up earlier in life. CAI recently investigated a British case from early in the last century in which a woman claimed to speak Ancient Egyptian, a very dead language she could not possibly have learned. This language’s written dialect is preserved today but it has no vowels and is therefore unpronounceable.

We were able to prove that the language spoken was indeed Ancient Egyptian, dating from about 1350 BCE and last spoken about 400CE. Moreover, the phonetic record of her speech is too large (5000 phrases) and too intricate to have been coincidental, fabricated or fraudulent. This new evidence shows that xenoglossy is a genuine anomalous phenomenon, obviously retrieved intuitively. Most significant, it provides strong evidence that human consciousness survives bodily death, a fact that has important implications for everyone alive today.  Read more …
