Silly question eh… it probably is im just trying to make sense of things because im thinking about doing the zen buddhist thing 🙂
I say the question because zen and buddhism i guess, believe in no self and conciousness is an an idea we made up, just like time is, which is useful to catergorise things.
But things like astral projection believe in a ‘you’ as it were, another body of yourself in the astral world and other planes beyond the physical world.
Now my assumptions are most skeptics and buddhists, many but not all, would think that conflicts alot with some of the philosophies…that its the human ego, that these things are just a product of the mind, a fantasy we may want, a deep desire to have something more meaningful in life such as visiting other planes…
But i really wanna give buddhism a go, and not cancel out that things like astral projection are just manifestations of the mind.
