Here’s another interesting video. It’s an interview with Dr . Darden. On the 5: 10 mark, he gives a fascinating story. When he had been still in high school, he worked well in a hospital. At the age of about 16 or 17, he had the opportunity to see an autopsy. The body was that of someone that he knew well. It was, to get Dr . Darden, an early encounter with the mysterious boundary between life and death.
