OBE - Out of Body Experience

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by DT-waw, Mar 23, 2003.

  1. I don't recall ever having one of these "experiences." Personally, I think it's all pretty much a bunch of bunk. :-/

    F. P.
     
  2. what about a dream? would that count as an OBE?

    let's say you talk to someone in your dream.

    you weren't actually, physically there (wherever "there" is) talking to them, but you still "experienced" talking to someone.

    so wouldn't that be a kind of OBE?


    also, have any of you guys ever had the experience of realising you were dreaming whilst still in your dream?

    i have. it's really cool. you're dreaming of something, then all of a sudden you think, hey man, this is just a dream.

    and then you can actually decide what you want to do in your dream. that's very cool.
    unfortunately, i have never managed to make the dream last for very long after i do this. as soon as i get some cool idea of what i want to do, i get a bit of the way through it, and then i wake up. :mad:

    used to happen a lot when i was young. it would be almost a year since the last time i can remember it happening now. wish i knew how to do it every night!

    Sleepwalking (somnambulism) is also an interesting topic. A person is unconscious, while asleep he can talk, dress, undress, eat, move around with avoiding obstacles or even drive a car!

    Telekenesis: some people are able to move things or change the form of metallic objects like spoons without hands, using only their own electromagnetic field, fewer people can levitate.

    Radiesthesia is more controversial topic. However I had one experience with this. Some time ago I've been in a place where I felt awful headache (never felt any that strong), when I left this place, it had gone.

    Question to Commisso: do buddhists experience OBE?
     
  4. I do believe in OBE's, but not in the pure sense of actually "leaving the body." I have had dreams that are intensely real (usually called lucid dreams). I've also had moments while drifting off to sleep where I felt my body rocking back and forth while accompanied by a weird metallic ringing sensation in my head.

    I just view it as the brain reaching a certain frequency or possible mild pre-sleep seizures in certain parts of the brain. I don't think there is any disconnection of consciousness, but I do believe that the state is something other than normal waking consciousness, the dream state or pure sleep states.

    Aphie it’s ok, the very same thing happened to a friend
    they found out that the ringing noise was caused when his crash helmet the nurses make him wear, hit the computer's monitor as he slid off his chair in one of those moments of extreme out of body exuberations brought on by visiting certain "types" of web site.
    Try switching to the yellow pills.... it worked for him :)

    "Absolutely Free"

    Suzy: I don't do publicity balling for you anymore

    FZ: The first word in this song is discorporate. It means to leave your body
    Discorporate & come with me
    Shifting; drifting

    Cloudless; starless
    VELVET VALLEYS & A SAPPHIRE
    SEA: Wah Wah

    Unbind your mind
    There is no time
    To lick your stamps
    And paste them in
    DISCORPORATE
    And we will begin . . .WAH WAH!
    (Flower Power Sucks)

    Diamonds on velvets on goldens on vixen
    On comet & cupid on donner & blitzen
    On up & away & afar & a go-go
    Escape from the weight of your corporate logo!

    UNBIND YOUR MIND
    THERE IS NO TIME
    Boin-n-n-n-n-n-g

    YOU'LL BE ABSOLUTELY FREE
    ONLY IF YOU WANT TO BE

    Dreaming on cushions of velvet & satin
    To music by magic by people that happen
    To enter the world of a strange purple Jello
    The dreams as they live them are all mellow yellow

    UNBIND YOUR MIND
    THERE IS NO TIME
    Boin-n-n-n-n-n-g
    TO LICK YOUR STAMPS
    AND PASTE THEM IN
    DISCORPORATE

    FREEDOM! FREEDOM!
    KINDLY LOVING!
    YOU'LL BE ABSOLUTELY FREE
