Re: All "out of the body" experiences are NOTHING BUT hallucinations??

Thanks for the post on the scientific view of psychism and
OBEs.  What was left unsaid was all of the cases where
the patient, while near death, saw and heard what was
going on around them, and recalled it all afterwards.  This
happened to my wife during birth of our first son.  The doctor
gave her a shot and told her that she would not be able to
remember anything.  She not only had full recall, but told
him exactly what he was doing, what he had said, and so
on.  The doctor was left speechless, with no explanation.
While it is easy for a doctor or outside observer to scoff
at these experiences, those who have them tend to
believe them because they seem very real, and also
because of information they learned that could not have
come through the physical senses, because these were
all closed.  The sheer number of folk who have had
these experiences is staggering.  Only a few scientists
(such as C.G. Jung) are big enough to accept that
the psychic is a separate continuum, as real as the
physical one.
