The voice delivered a very long and ominous monologue. At first I tried to memorize word for word, but it quickly became too much to take in. At one point, the voice seemed to mock me that it was purposely saying a lot so I wouldn't be able to remember.
I've been thinking about the connection between OBEs and death, since my last experience included seeing my non-physical arm as mist.
After about four hours of trying, I was able to have another out of body experience, where I saw my arm as translucent mist.
I had an out of body experience (OBE) this morning, again. It was very quick, but I thought I would record it just for posterity.
Since my last OBE, I have wanted to try and see an entity the next time I got out. However, this experience demonstrates that OBEs can be surprising and defy expectations.
Most of my OBEs have been pretty boring, believe it or not. Still, some OBEs have stuck with me through the years. One experience that I keep coming back to happened the morning of May 25th, 2006, when I was 23 years old.
In a previous post, I outlined what I feel is the most compelling evidence that the soul doesn't exist. Now, let's back up and explore the idea of the soul from a different perspective. If we did have a soul, how could it operate, and still be consistent with the facts we see?
I decide I want to have an out of body experience. This post is an amalgamation of common things I experience, but not exhaustive. This is typical for the night – my experiences in the morning have a different structure.
Given that I regularly have out of body experiences, it would make sense that I believe in a soul. Reality is more complicated than that though. It's important to study the facts, even if they're contradictory and don't paint a clear picture.
There is an hypothesis in UFO lore that we are souls trapped on Earth, in a cycle of reincarnation, against our will. This is called the Prison Planet hypothesis. Can I find anything in my own life that bears a resemblance to the Prison Planet?
I don't have proof that higher intelligent beings exist, but I think it's an interesting thought experiment, which even the most ardent skeptic must address due to the advances in AI. How will the world look when we are no longer #1?
I used to be obsessed with this question. But OBEs are weird, and don't fit neatly into our understanding of reality. Here's how I was able to move past this question.
I had an out of body experience (OBE) last night. I fell asleep like normal, and wasn't really trying to have one, though I have decided to be more open to it lately. It was the middle of the night, and I woke up in bed. My state of mind
Everyone experiences altered states of consciousness. You might not realize it, but when you fall asleep, you pass through many different states. With practice, you can watch yourself fall asleep, and explore your own mind in the process.
