Article: Roger Ebert's Wife on His Final Moments

"But toward the end, something really interesting happened. That week before Roger passed away, I would see him and he would talk about having visited this other place. I thought he was hallucinating. I thought they were giving him too much medication. But the day before he passed away, he wrote me a note: "This is all an elaborate hoax." I asked him, "What's a hoax?" And he was talking about this world, this place. He said it was all an illusion. I thought he was just confused. But he was not confused. He wasn't visiting heaven, not the way we think of heaven. He described it as a vastness that you can't even imagine. It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once."

Thank you for sharing this both heart-felt and heart-warming story. When people don't have anything to defend, they can be open to the truth as they see it.

Very interesting story! Even find more surprising that it was put in print considering other stories in the same media. The quote below was something I have read before being mentioned by people in different circles (speculative, theorist, occult, even scientific):
It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once."
With our tools (current senses) it is difficult be able to comprehend a NOW comprised of past, present, and future taking place simultaneously and make sense of it.

The article is an easy read with surprising revelations. I agree with Carl - big surprise it was printed in Esquire Magazine.

Given his profession as a reviewer of movies and his vast knowledge of the ins and outs of that work, I find his observations even more compelling.
