Dying, Death & The
Afterlife - A lecture on the perspectives of death &
afterlife by Dom Villella.
We will take a look at many possibilities and experiences
with the use of: Parapsychology, Metaphysics &
Thanatology observations. Dom will discuss his own
experiences from his kindle book, "Journey to an Afterlife
Time" and also as a paranormal investigator.
~Dom began his studies
in Parapsychology in 1998. Started Paranormal Investigation
of NYC in 2003 and began the NYC paranormal Meetup Group.
Ever since he was a child Dom had a fascination with
unanswered questions. From his first paranormal experience,
he felt the need to research the meaning of life and
afterlife. In 2007 Dom began studying Metaphysics &
Thanatology to develop an understanding of the process of
dying. Dom is the author of "A Journey to an Afterlife Time"
available @ amazon.com (kindle addition). An afterlife
journey based on his own dreams, visions & actual

the research page has been incorporated between this
page and the investigation page. I want to wish
everyone a Happy Halloween.
Ed Sullivan piece aired last night. Unfortunately they
left out our organization name and any info on the
actual investigation. The skit was funny and we got a
kick out of it, we just wish people would have been
able to see what we actually do. Still it was an
experience of a lifetime and CBS treated us great.
We were called: Ghostbusters, Rupert and the ghost
hunters, and Poltergeist hunters. Click the
following link to view the video captured. We ruled
out any reflections, lights, laser beams, insects and
anything else possible and we were left with

Recent Developments - We have recently
tried a process called, "Positive energy transference."
At a certain time on a specified day a group of people
will think of one specific person determined beforehand,
who needs positive energy. Then we will all try and send
energy, prayers, good thoughts, and anything else
positive to try and improve that persons situation. So
far 4 out of 4 peoples situations have improved. This
may be caused by positive thinking, prayer or just a
persons urge to improve there life, either way I am
happy that lives are being improved and whatever works
we will try. the woman from the Lower NYC investigations
life has gradually improved, she is in much better
spirits than when I first met her and she seems to be
