To whom it may concern,

My name is Melanie Estrada and I was hoping you have time to answer some questions about Out-of-Body Experiences. I have a very big project about this phenomena and it would be extremely helpful to me if you would answer these few questions. Thank You for your time.

Where do you think Out-of-Body Experiences orginate from?

Do you believe that OBE's and Lucid Dreams have any type of connection? How are they different?

What does the experiencer tend to feel while they are in an Out-of-Body Experience?

How can one tell they are in an Out-of-Body Experience?

Can a person start an OBE? If so what are some techniques?

What is the science behind an Out-of-Body Experiences, if any?

Is there a certain circumstance a person has to be in order to have an OBE?

What typically occurs in an OBE?

How often do OBE's occur? Can any person experience it?

What do you think is the most important thing a person should know about an Out-of-Body Experience?

I certainly have little knowledge on this phenomena. So please feel free
to add any additional information that you believe is important.

Thank You once again for your time.
Have a great day!

Melanie

What do you think?

NDE's have been studied in the lab due to the ability of G-LOC or Gravity induced loss of consciousness.

Sorry if it is impolite to post a link to another podcast, but this one deals directly with this question.

"astral projection"
Introduced in the 60's psychedelic world phenomena
It just deals with the mind getting messed up.
Hypothetically: If you believe in ghosts then you must agree that man can travel at light speed?

Are you claiming that "man can travel at light speed" follows logically from a 'belief in ghosts'?
It clearly doesn't. Perhaps I've misunderstood. ???

Exactly my point! I believe it clearly does not! neither does OBE, it is just a mind set.
