This term was coined by Guggenheim and Guggenheim in their book Hello from Heaven and shares common ground with the term NDE or Near Death Experience written about by Raymond Moody, MD in his book Life After Life. According to these authors these phenomena are reported by about twenty percent of the population. They are most typically random and spontaneous events and often involve a vivid and life changing contact with a deceased person with whom they have had some relationship even if only casual. These ADCs are not considered hallucinations. They occur regardless of a person’s religious or spiritual belief.+
