When Dannion is speaking on the National Forum on the Near Death Experience, previously can be seen an ad poster announcing the names of all speakers: Eugene Slattery, Tom Fallon, Vincent Cresciman, Dannion Brinkley, Meche Farah, Brian Hyckox, Peter Wooley and Vera Mills. Although supposedly the other seven names should must be fictitious, all them coincide with real people:
-Eugene Slattery - He was an activist for the Rights' Victims after the rape and assassination of his 14-years-old daughter Karen, in 1984. He died in 1989 in a plane crash.
-Thomas Fallon - He was the location manager of the movie (appears credited as Tom Fallon).
-Vincent Cresciman - He was the production designer of the movie (appears credited as Vince Cresciman).
-Meche Farah - Michelle "Meche" Farah is a creative decor from Jacksonville, Florida.
-Bryan Hickox - He was the line producer of the movie (appears credited as S. Bryan Hickox).
-Peter Wooley - An English watercolor painter, although his last name is "Woolley".
