Man Traveled Back in Time to the Past during Near-Death Experience

During the near-death experience, Kiuchi wanted to prove scientifically his amazing experience.


Thus, he carried out a kind of experiment.


In this experiment, he possessed his friend to show him an illusion.


That experiment was successful as described in the previous article.


However, Kiuchi wanted to leave some more solid evidences that he could teleport anywhere he wanted during the near-death experience.


If the near-death experience is due to the dream or illusion caused by chemical changes in the brain, there would be no physical evidence.


On the contrary, if it is true, he may be able to leave some physical evidences to be scientifically verified later.


But, he bumped into a serious problem.


During the near-death experience, he left his body behind.


Without the body, his spirit cannot make any impact on the physical world.

Thus, Kiuchi could not leave any physical evidence, because he had no body to write letters and to make some evidences.

What am I going to do…

While he teleported to various times and places, Kiuchi struggled to look a solution to the problem.

Traveled Back in Time More Than 100 Years Ago

On the umpteenth teleportation, Kiuchi teleported back in time to Edo Period more than 100 years ago.


He visited a prestigious family which produced many poets for 1000 years.


Kiuchi was in a room.


In front of him, a poet tried to compose a poem before a blank sheet of Japanese paper.

Then, Kiuchi came up with an interesting idea.


He attempted to climb into the poet's mind.


When he climbed into the poet's mind, Kiuchi saw a sheet of Japanese paper before his eyes.


He found himself saw the paper through the poet's eyes.


Amazingly, his mind was integrated with the poet’s mind.


In this way, he succeeded in possessing the poet's body.


Then, Kiuchi thought that he may write something by borrowing the poet’s body.


If his plan turns out well, it may serve as physical evidence that he visited the family more than 100 years ago beyond time and space.


Thus, through the poet’s body, Kiuchi wrote Japanese kana characters Tsuru as follows.

Tsuru derived from his name, Tsuruhiko.


Then, Kiuchi committed himself to find out the poem he wrote by borrowing the poet's body, if he could come back to life again.

Find out Critical Evidence that He Teleported Back in Time More Than 100 Years Ago

After he was discharged from the hospital, Kiuchi looked for the family which he visited during the near-death experience.


He made a conjecture that the poet he possessed was a past master of Japanese poem (waka).


Relying on dim recollection and some contacts, he finally found out an old family in Kyoto.

It was a historically famous family which produced an ancestor whose poem was selected as one of the best 100 Japanese poem compiled into a classical Japanese anthology of “Ogura Hyakunin-isshu” in the 13th century.


The family had a collection of poem composed by family heads and it has been passed down in the family for generations.


Kiuchi met a descendant of the family and ask him about the collection of poem.

Amazingly, according to the descendant, it was found that a poem of the collection which included the kana characters Tsuru.


The descendant told Kiuchi about the poem.


In Japanese, the characters Tsuru mean “vines (plant)” or “cranes (bird).”


However, the poem’s content is quite irrelevant to vines and cranes.


Furthermore, the characters Tsuru are an extra phrase and thus they disturb the rhythm of the poem.


Therefore, it has been a mystery to descendants of the family for many years why the poet added the extra characters Tsuru to the poem.


Hearing this, Kiuchi was surprised and he told the descendant about his near-death experience.


The descendant was very amazed to hear Kiuchi's experience and showed the collection of poem, which has been passed down in the family for generations, especially for Kiuchi.

Kiuchi confirmed the characters Tsuru in the poem.

It was exactly the characters Kiuchi wrote through the poet’s body more than 100 years ago during the near-death experience!


The descendant was surprised to learn the truth of the characters Tsuru from Kiuchi.


Then, he said with wonder,

I finally got the reason why my ancestor added the characters Tsuru in the poem.


That solves the long-standing mystery in our family.

In this way, it was verified that Kiuchi really teleported back in time more than 100 years ago to the family in Kyoto during the near-death experience.


For some time after he came back to life, Kiuchi once suspected that the near-death experience was due to dream or illusion caused by chemical changes in the brain.


Furthermore, he even wondered that he temporarily lost his mind.


However, his rigorous research effort has revealed startling evidences supporting that the near-death experience is the reality.

Time Gets Warped During the Near-Death Experience

Strangely, Kiuchi had the near-death experience for a short period of time from the arrest of the heart to the resuscitation.


He found out later that it lasted less than 30 minutes.


But, for him, it felt longer than a lifetime.


Actually, all that time, he visited various times and places faster than light.


Furthermore, Kiuchi felt like his head was going to explode from information overload.


Because of that, he could not recall most of his memories during the near-death experience for a long while after he came back to life.


However, those memories came to his mind by some trigger.


At that time, a vivid memory came back to him as if he had an awakening.


It seems that his experience of the journey beyond time and space remained deep in his memories.

Two Phases of Near-Death Experience

According to Kiuchi, there are two phases of near-death experience when you pass away.


In the first phase, you are near death but still alive, because your heart beats and your brain activity is recorded.


In this phase, you may see the vision of the spirit world, such as a dark cave and a hill covered with a field of flowers.

This first phase of near-death experience has been reported worldwide.


According to Kiuchi, in the first phase, he felt like he was in a half-remembered dream.


In this phase, he was zoned out, although he retained a clear cutaneous feeling when he was walking through the mud and lying down on the grass.


On the other hand, in the second phase, you are completely dead, because your heart stops beating and your brain waves are also absent.


According to Kiuchi, the second phase is indistinguishable from the real life in a sense of reality except that you have no body.


In the second phase, nothing seemed to be the same as the real life, because you have a clear sensorium, clear thinking and feeling.


Nevertheless, you can teleport anywhere beyond time and space.


The difference between the 1st phase and the 2nd phase of near-death experiment is summarized in the table below.

Near-Death Experience

1st Phase

You are near death but still alive

You felt like you are in a half-remembered dream
You see the vision of the spirit world


2nd Phase

You are dead and exist as a spirit 

It is indistinguishable from the real life in a sense of reality
You can teleport anywhere beyond time and space

Therefore, Kiuchi’s near-death experience is unique in the world, because he was once completely dead and became a ghost leaving his body behind, but he miraculously returned to his body and came back to life again.


By the way, have you ever acted unconsciously against your will?

Perhaps, at that time, you may have been possessed by a ghost who passed away in the future, just as Kiuchi did.
