Quarks of Light: A Near-Death Experience. What I Saw that Opened My Heart.
Rob A. Gentile
Rob A. Gentile is the son of Italian immigrants. His father worked in a steel-mill, and so he grew up in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania. Gentile has spent his career as a sales representative in the steel industry while married to his wife, Melanie, for over 30 years. Together, they have devoted themselves to their special needs daughter, Maria, who is in her twenties, and whom Rob refers to as “pure spirit.” Throughout her childhood, he grappled with difficult questions about prayer and why children must suffer. Answers came in a sudden and unexpected way—at age 56 he had a massive heart attack, then flatlined, and had a near-death experience (NDE). Self-discovery and spiritual awakening continued while waiting to receive a donor heart. His journey provides a roadmap for overcoming adversity, staying in spirit, and addressing the most troubling questions of our time. He shares the insights learned from his spiritual awakening. Quarks of Light is his first book.
Quarks of Light At the age of 56, Rob A. Gentile had a massive heart attack followed by a profound near-death experience. On his journey to heart transplant, he was close to death again and entered the Ethereal a second time. He found himself inside a shapeless, formless vacuum of unending and infinite vastness. He was everywhere at once, scattered across a timeless expanse and connected to the wisdom of the universe—all of it without words. He saw and simultaneously became part of a gigantic interactive web of twinkling lights covering the Earth and stretching into infinity. Curiously, some parts of the web were brighter, some dim, and some completely dark. He later came to believe that this web represents a network that binds us all and is built upon quarks—the smallest elements of matter, and which are made of light. While in the Ethereal, he understood that each quark of light symbolized a life. He realized that if he hurt himself, he hurt everything connected to him, but if he loved, the light would spread. Rob also saw his special-needs daughter, perfect, whole and radiant. The most important message he received was of unity, oneness, and our real identity. In Quarks of Light, Rob shares his journey and provides a roadmap for overcoming adversity, staying in spirit, and connecting to the Universal language of love and light.

It's hard to put into words my appreciation for MONOLITH. He made us very very happy with his work. The design is not only exceptionally beautiful, but cool and to the point at the same time. For determination, punctuality, reliability, communication, creativity etc MONOLITH gets 5 stars and more. It's just that he read our wishes from our lips and put them on paper. Thank you for everything 🙏🏽
