That entire site is fake…........It has the obvious signs…......His team includes him and a dog, and he isn’t even a doctor…..It will take several years until you will under go it….and it is illegal….even though they might be able to be brought back….it is attempted murder…..or helping assist in attempted suicide.
Just came across this, as a couple of people have recently used the above link, old as it is, to refer to the NDEXP homepage.
Just to set the record straight, I can tell you that the neither the site, nor the experiment are fake. The NDEXP, will be conducted but, unfortunately it will take somewhere near $US 1 Million dollars to achieve it and appropriate ethics approval.
As far as “X” and his obvious signs that the site is a fake…
His team includes him and a dog
Well, the dog is real, and I didn’t see that there was any harm in attempting to inject a bit of humour into things somewhere.
he isn’t even a doctor
Yes, I’m not a doctor, but I’m not entirely sure how that relates to anything. Doctors can be hired, and so can the rest of the medical team required (hence the bill). Its like saying that neither of the Wright Brothers were pilots, therefore they couldn’t have flown a plane. In any case, I have some experience management, which is likely to be more relevant to many aspects of putting something like this together, than a medical degree.
It will take several years until you will under go it
Yes, several years before the project can be conducted. Unless of course anyone here has the appropriate money, in which case I could put an ethics submission before my university within days.
and it is illegal….even though they might be able to be brought back….it is attempted murder…..or helping assist in attempted suicide
Without knowing what jurisdiction “X” is living in I couldn’t comment on the legality of the NDEXP where he resides. In Australia, however, it there is no issue with the legality of the project. Research involving humans is strictly regulated and requires ethics approval from an appropriately consisted ethics committee. Ethics committees are required to take certain things into account, and none of these precludes an experiment like the NDEXP from taking place. In fact, the biggest obsticle will be simply dealing with the modern cultural aversion to anything to do with death, and the scientific-cultural aversion to do with anything to do with the paranormal.
With respect to it being either illegal, or assisted suicide, I have already discussed these issues with the Victorian Police, after the a religious group complained that the NDEXP was precisely these. They disagreed, both on the basis of the ethics guidelines and the fact that the procedure is used regularly in medicine and that the purpose of the experiment is to revive the participants, not to kill them
I hope this helps clarify the status of the NDEXP and to reassure people that it is not a hoax!
