A lot of people sent this article to me and I wrote back to them with some thoughts about it. I'll see if I can dig up an old response since I don't want to retype it. Stand by...
Aha, I have found my response. I read the article and then posted this back to the guy who asked me to comment on it:
I read the article. Some things didn't make sense to me.
I mean, I understand how when you stimulate parts of the brain then people have weird experiences, but in the article, no one accurately described a real out of body experience. They talked about feeling a presence (that's not an OOBE) and then they said a woman felt a strange sensation like she was floating on the ceiling, but that's not astral projection either. The fact that she was able to speak with her mouth while she felt that way negates the possibility that she was having an oobe. When you're really out of your body, your body just lays there like a shell, you no longer have any consciousness in that shell at all. ALL of your consciousness is in your astral body.
What would be an interesting experiment, however, is to take people who claim to have real OOBE's and subject them to the same electro-stimulation and compare their experiences to see if they are the same.
I mean, if I was hooked up to a machine that could duplicate my exact experiences with astral projection then I would consider that and weigh it heavily. But if they hooked me up to the machine, and I had an experience, but it was dissimilar to my other astral expereinces, then I would say it's inconclusive. Know what I mean?
