Vernon Neppe, MD, PhD, FRSSAf, is a neuropsychiatrist and head of the Pacific Neuropsychiatric Institute in Seattle. He is a former president of the South African Society for Psychical Research. He is author of Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope, Reality Begins with Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift that Works (written with physicist Edward Close), The Déjà Vu Trilogy, and Innovative Psychopharmacotherapy. His professional publications number over 700. Dr Neppe has amplified many of his concepts in two of the websites linked with his work. On www.Brainvoyage.com, his books are amplified. www.VernonNeppe.org is his gateway and includes more information on the Neppe-Close model of the Triadic Distinction Vortical Paradigm.
Here he provides a detailed analysis of a chess match played between a living grandmaster, Victor Korchnoi and an ostensible deceased grandmaster, Géza Maróczy, whose moves were communicated through the auspices of a spiritualist medium using automatic writing. Neppe argues that this is a strong case supporting the hypothesis of survival of consciousness after death. It combines an unusual degree of accurate information with a high level of chess skill, plus aspects of personality.
