In the West, a near-death encounter that
allows a preview of the Other
World often leaves, as is said, the sufferer with a
profound spiritual experience, which further brings about
a fundamental shift in personality orientation and general
outlook on life. If one return journey on the
Other Side can cause such a deep change, imagine when somebody
holds a multiple travel pass and makes regular trips between
the two worlds!
A Chinese man in Chongqing is just such a
guy who finds himself a commuter between the Yin and Yang two
He has no knowledge as to when he ever applied
for the travel pass, and insists he is forced to live a
life on the road. After the success of his initial voyage
at the age of eight, it becomes a routine for him to take
day trip to and fro the dark region every few months.
During the time when he was traveling, his
physical body demonstrates no sign of life, pale and rigid
with no pulse and breath detected. Then hours later, he
is back, fit and sound, picking up the thread of his interrupted yang life.
But unlike his Western counterparts, he never
signs a contract with any media network to talk on TV about
his encounter, nor does he seal a deal with any publishing
house to promote his memoir. Because of his stubborn silence
on the subject, so far the details of his journey are murky.
Reportedly his next date with the Netherworld
is due. Will this time he change his mind and decide to
let us all share his travel experience in that Wonder-may
or may not-Land? We'll find out by then, so please keep
