| | This is science at its best
I think that the great beauty of science is its ability to explain things that our intuitive brains just can't get. Out of body experiences have bothered me for years because they seem to imply the existance of a soul. If we have a soul than that implies all sorts of other things which are very hard to understand. I didn't think that OBEs would ever be something that could be studied objectively - not in my lifetime at any rate.
But now it turns out that they can be produced at will in the laboratory.
This pleases me immensely. Another area that had seemed beyond the power of reason and rationality has been explored, and found to comply with the rules that apply elsewhere.
