I read this book about 7 years ago. I'm sure you would like it if you haven't come across it, yet.
I just searched and found Michael Talbot's book on Amazon. Read the first reviewer's comments, they seem to address your concerns.
The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.
This book posits an incredible theory for how the universe, memory, and consciousness work.
Read more about the theory here.
Not what you're looking for, but relevant.
I know it's a rense.com link but the author of that commentary is Michael Talbot, the same who wrote The Holographic Universe, seen here: vhttp://www.amazon.com/The-Holographic-Universe-Michael-Talbot/dp/0060922583
Good stuff, very intricate and interresting.

Call all you want, after reading- (A holographic universe) I became interested in his work.
THE physics book that changed the way I think about life, thinking, and just everything in general: The Holographic Universe, by Michael Talbot. It is astounding.
Referenced numerous times in The Holographic Universe and explains in detail the implicate vs. the explicate orders of the universe/multiverse/everything in which we all live: Wholeness and the Implicate Order, by David Bohm.
I suggest reading Talbot's book first, then move on to Bohm's. Read with an open mind and you will probably understand yourself better. Have fun!
EDIT: I should have thoroughly read all of your text, OP; sorry about that, but I would not call these books "very simple reading". A background in chemistry, physics, and astronomy would help. I am extremely interested in these subjects, (more generally I just love science) and was a senior in HS when I first read them. I understood most concepts and theories contained therein but every time I re-read them I always find new "truths"... if there are such things.
Never heard this before, but I would like to know.
My own Incubus theory is that the song A Crow left of the Murder is about the book The Holographic Universe I read this book and the lyrics to the song seem to relate to the book a lot. Every pece contains a map of it all is key in holographic principle. Also there is an episode of MTV Cribs where Brandon shows this book on his bookshelf and says its a really good read.
> How reliable is your information about your friend? What was the test like? Do you know? Additionally, did the people giving her the test know that it was for a TV show? Because if they did, it is not a double-blind study and is thus unreliable.
Honestly, I don't know the details.
> ... until someone with no interest in reincarnation being true does this experiment (a double-blind study), I must regard his claims skeptically.
I believe Dr. Stevenson has a very dispassionate approach to his research. He doesn't come across as someone who set out to prove that reincarnation exists.
As an example, he titles his book, "Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation", not, "Twenty Cases that Prove Reincarnation Beyond Any Doubt." On the other hand, the readers of the book often remark that "suggestive" is an understatement, and that the evidence in the book is very compelling.
> ... you can think of nothing else that would explain the evidence?
The only theory which seems to make sense is the one of a Holographic Universe. Basically, it says that we are not "real"; we seem to be living in a giant hologram. But, I understand this theory isn't yet widely accepted in scientific circles.
To know more, please see this book: The Holographic Universe
The Holographic Universe theory has been stating this for a while. David Bohm and the implicate order. It's fascinating stuff and it makes total sense, I highly recommend it.
I only used the term biofeedback because I'm a child of the '70s/'80s. :)
I thought you could use biofeedback by simply becoming aware of your physical symptoms and how they respond to relaxation, meditation, visualization, etc. It's entirely possible that I've been using the term wrong all these years. :)
I linked the Talbot book in a previous comment, but here it is again. Basically, he discusses the theories of Bohm and Pribram that the universe can be modeled using the concepts of holography. It's an amazing read; I just wish they'd finally release it for the Kindle.
It's real because reality is multi-dimensional and you are constantly shifting between infinite parallel variations. Sages throughout the ages and shamans today can see other realms that overlay ours. Positive thinking is built on this construct. It's only new that we have the Internet to compare notes on similar "misrememberings"
I would add I have real MEs and that I also think timelines are splitting in an accelerated manner that we are noticing. I also had an NDE. I also would not discount a demiurge/illusion master, global lab experiment operated by future humans, digital reality, Dark City scenario, or a psy op. I am open to all explanations.

Edit I did not know these were so expensive now. I have pdfs and mobis of them I think if anyone wants. They are translated from Russian and are about how to use multiple universe theory to control your life. The premise is we do not manifest things into this reality instead we transition into realities where we have those things.
