An Interesting Link On OBEs
    #2800759 - 06/16/04 11:32 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

http://www.rotten.com/library/occult/astral-projection/


The whole page is on more than just astral projection, and it goes into near death experinces and out of body experinces. The most interesting part of it, is that the writter takes the "spirtual" interpertations as not necessarly rubish, but rather tries to offer some very sound scientific approaches to explain them (many of which have been described on this board, IE the DMT theory and lack of oxygen).

I like that approach best. Certainly a persons' OBE experince could be "real" in that they actually experince it, but not necessarily a physically visting a real place. I really don't know what the truth is, but it's very interesting to read and think about.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

Rotten.com surprisingly has some GREAT write-ups on different historical figures. That includes Terrance McKenna & Timmothy Leary.
