Out-of-body Experience


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/07/out-of-body-experience/

Out-of-Body experience or OBE is best described as a sensation in which a person most likely feels going out of his own physical body and observing it from afar. This experience is also referred to as astral projection wherein it was said that one could travel from one place to another without moving the physical body. To better understand out-of-body experience, it is when the soul leaves the body for some time, intentionally and otherwise.

Out-of-body experiences can occur under many different circumstances. Some reported cases were brought forward claiming that OBE can be achieved during deep sleep or in altered state of mind such as under the influence of a drug. Furthermore, cases of OBE were reported alongside NDE or near-death experiences which often go hand-in-hand. Others have already mastered the ability to induce OBE when they want to.

Some of the known types of OBE are:
·    Spontaneous OBE
·    Mental Stimulated OBE
·    Mechanical and Mental Inducted OBE

Discussions about OBEs are still ongoing. These discussions usually question the authenticity of out-of-body experiences—whether they are true or OBEs are just our mind’s manifestations similar to hallucination. While the latter has many scientific basis to establish claims, the question of us having our own unique souls persisted, making it impossible for any claims to stand strong. When it comes to OBEs, science and culture kept clashing and while there’s no strong enough evidence to support any side’s claim, it seems that OBEs would have to stay as one of the greatest mysteries human have ever encountered.
