How do scientists explain Astral Projection?


  1. I’m just thinking, but as someone who does astral project every now and then, it’s something that science cannot fully explain yet. It relies heavily on anecdotal evidence and personal experience, both of which are not easily scientifically verifiable.
    On the other hand, it also comes down to how the brain works in certain states, so it can probably be explained away in psychological terms by some.

  2. Do you mean the emission of light waves or photons from a stellar object? This can be explained by the nuclear fission of H to He.

  3. You ever seen one of those things on a big screen? Scary as all crap. You go around projecting your astral, most people don’t even want to know about it, much less explain it, dude.

  4. Science can’t explain EVRYTHING yet. If they can explain astral projection, I’m not sure how they do. Um, they aren’t God, they don’t know everything, that’s all I know.

  5. Google “Olaf Blanke” and you can read up on the scientific research on “astral projection.” It is a condition that can be learned or else often occurs in persons with epilepsy or schizophrenia. Seizure-like activity occurs in parts of the brain, such as the parietal lobe, which causes a disassociation between self, body, and location so that a person experiences himself as outside the body. It is also related to lucid or hypnogogic dream states.

  6. As an non-existent phenomena that is the result of a delusional or an altered mental state. This can be due to drug use or a near death experience, where the brain is starved of oxygen.
    No supernatural mumbo-jumbo needed.

  7. Scientists have explained “Astral Projection” or “Out Of Body” experiences but not your typical scientist you see in everyday dogmatic scientific magazines.Frankly most of the population as of now are too fear based to experience this type of thing so asking this type of question here is basically like asking a 2 year old if they can drive a car. If you search enough on the internet you will find sites dedicated to such stuff. The Web has opened up a whole new world and understanding as to what and who we are 🙂 You yourself can do science on psi phenomena and astral projection but you can’t be a Scientist who is afraid of his next pay being cut… if you get my drift 😉
    Personal,religious and cultural beliefs are blinding and very hard to break down so people get very angry and frightened when these are challenged.
    What you read from a 2000 year old text or the latest science magazine won’t give you answers unless you do the discovering what is real or not for yourself in this field. It is then possible to get objective results in certain circumstances.
    “It’s not real” or “it’s demonic” is a cry from someone who doesn’t understand and is closed by belief or too fearful to ever finding out. It really doesn’t matter because we all find out for certain one day 🙂
    Reality is a whole lot bigger than many have been told, have fun , the earth isn’t flat anymore 😉

  8. They can’t explain it, therefore they deny it exists.
    Of course a lot of us know better. I don’t really mind that a lot of people think it’s a load of rubbish….it just makes it more exclusive to those of us who know it.

  9. It happens in the mind. No man can send his spirit out of his body. That is demonic. That is impossible!
    Here’s some Scripture I gathered a long time ago to show that astral projection is of the devil. Before I show you these Scripture, take a look at these Scripture and I will explain them:
    -Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.
    Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 does not refer to astral projection. This is an analogy. New Age is a new thing and it used Ecclesiastes 12:6-7. Ecclesiastes was written hundreds of years before the arrival of New Age occult.
    -2 Corinthians 12:2-4 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago–whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows–such a one was caught up to the third heaven. And I know such a man–whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows– how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
    This is not sending your spirit out of your body. This is a man being taken up to heaven by God. The purpose is to show him things, secrets, revelations.
    Now here are the Scripture:
    – Ecclesiastes 8:8 No one has power over the spirit to retain the spirit, and no one has power in the day of death. There is no release from that war, and wickedness will not deliver those who are given to it.
    If man has no power over the spirit to retain the spirit in the day of death, how can a man have power to send the spirit out of his body?
    – 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
    To be absent from the body is to be immediately present with the Lord. We indicates believers. That doesn’t mean that unbelievers can’t go to heaven. The living God is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe (1 Timothy 4:10).
    -Luke 16:22-23 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
    Luke 16:22 indicates that as soon as a person dies, if God accepts him, he is taken to heaven. In Jewish tradition, Abraham’s bosom indicates a honored seating next to Abraham. Luke 16:23 indicates as soon as a person dies, if God rejects him, he is immediately in torments in the lake of fire (Hades is a symbolic reference for the lake of fire; there is only one hell, not the many hells Catholic teach).
    -Revelation 4:1-2 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
    Again we see in Revelation 4:1-2, the person is immediately taken up to heaven. And again, the purpose is to show him things. Note that although God is spoken of being on the throne in heaven, He is Omnipresent. That means He is here with us.

  10. ya know, there are just somethings you just know science will not look at seriously. This would be one of them–I’m sure hallucination or dreaming would be most likely.

  11. The true religion would be the one that came from God. I reverted to Islam a few years ago. I became a more devout Muslim when I realized these things.
    These are scientific proofs. Please go to the link below and take a look
    and this link also
    This is why some people are atheists. Go to the link below
    God sent many messengers to Adam’s(pbuh) descendants to let us know that we should worship none but God alone and to submit to God but people kept changing their message.
    Islam is the same religion that Abraham(pbuh), Moses(pbuh), Jesus(pbuh), Muhammad(pbuh) and all the other prophets preached. The word Islam in Arabic means submission to God and that is what all the prophets did.
    [Quran 3:67] Abraham was not a Jew or a Christian. He was an upright person who had submitted himself to the will of God. Abraham was not a pagan.
    The Holy Quran says this about the Trinity
    [4:171] O people of the scripture, do not transgress the limits of your religion, and do not say about GOD except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was a messenger of GOD, and His word that He had sent to Mary, and a revelation from Him. Therefore, you shall believe in GOD and His messengers. You shall not say, “Trinity.” You shall refrain from this for your own good. GOD is only one god. Be He glorified; He is much too glorious to have a son. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. GOD suffices as Lord and Master.
    [5:73] Pagans indeed are those who say that GOD is a third of a trinity. There is no god except the one god. Unless they refrain from saying this, those who disbelieve among them will incur a painful retribution.
    [5:116] GOD will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to the people, `Make me and my mother idols beside GOD?’ ” He will say, “Be You glorified. I could not utter what was not right. Had I said it, You already would have known it. You know my thoughts, and I do not know Your thoughts. You know all the secrets.
    So if Christians believe in the trinity, they are ploytheistic.
    According to the Qur’an, Jesus(pbuh) was born miraculously by the will of God without a father. His mother is regarded as a chaste and virtuous woman and is a highly respected figure in Islam. The Qur’an states that Jesus was the result of a virgin birth. If God says it will happen, it will. For Muslims Mary is a symbol of submission to God and piety.
    Moses, Abraham, and Jesus(Peace be upon them all) brought Islam but people changed it and forgot it. The Bible was the word of God until people changed it. Today there are more than one thousand different Bibles. Why do you think there are so many different versions of it?
    The Quran is in it’s Original form. It has never been changed. There are different translations of the Quran but there is only one version and that is the original form. That is why it must be recited in it’s original language so that it doesn’t change.
    The word Islam in Arabic means submission to the will of God and thats what Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad(Peace be upon them all) did. God sent them to let the world know that they should worship none but God himself.
    Christians don’t follow Jesus(pbuh) the way he said. No where in the Bible does Jesus say that he’s God and to worship him but thats what Christians do. When Jesus(pbuh) was praying, was he praying to himself?
    But heres what Jesus(pbuh) did say in the Bible.
    Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a MAN approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: (KJV Bible Acts 2:22)
    Mark tells us in his gospel that Jesus was unable to do any powerful work in his hometown except few things: “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.” (Mark 6:5). Mark also tells us that when Jesus tried to heal a certain blind man, the man was not healed after the first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (see Mark 8:22-26).
    John tells us that Jesus cannot do anything by his own when he quotes Jesus as saying: “By myself I can do nothing…” (John 5:30).
    And here are some facts. Jesus(pbuh) needed to eat food, he got thirsty and had to drink, he got sad, he got angry, and he got hurt. These are not the qualities of God.
    As a Muslim, I believe that Jesus(pbuh) healed sick people and brought people back to life with God’s permission. Jesus(pbuh) even said
    “By myself I can do nothing…” (John 5:30).
    Quran [3:55] Thus, GOD said, “O Jesus, I am terminating your life, raising you to Me, and ridding you of the disbelievers. I will exalt those who follow you above those who disbelieve, till the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is the ultimate destiny of all of you, then I will judge among you regarding your disputes.
    Heres a verse from the Bible about Original sin
    “The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.” (Deuteronomy 24:16)
    So why do Christians believe everyone is born with sin when their own Bible says that everyone is responsible for their sins.
    (Quran 6:164) “…No person earns any (sin) except against himself (only), and no bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another…”
    Please go to this link to learn more about this
    Please go to the link below and watch this debate between the Muslim scholar Sheikh Ahmad Deedat and the Christian reverend Eric Bock debate on the topic “is Jesus God?” You will see that no where in the Bible does Jesus(pbuh) say that he is God. In fact the word trinity is not even in the Bible. It doesn’t say that anywhere in any version of the Bible. Please watch by going to this link
    Please watch this video by going to the link below and Shiekh Khalid Yasin explains that Abraham(pbuh), Moses(pbuh), and Jesus(pbuh) were all Muslims. Please go to the link below and watch.
    Understand that the word Muslim means someone who submits his/her will to God
    Go to this link below and watch this debate with the Muslim scholar Ahmad Deedat proving to everyone that Jesus(pbuh) said in the Bible that prophet Muhammad(pbuh) will come.
    Also Skip Estes who is now Yusuf Estes used to be a Christian minister in the U.S. before he converted to Islam. He became a Muslim when he tried to convert someone else to Christianity. He is known worldwide for his lectures. Please go to the link below to watch him tell his story of why he became a Muslim. It’s very interesting.
    your gonna have to click on part 2 when part 1 is over and so on.
    Our motto is “There is none worthy of worship except God”
    Quran [2:112] Indeed, those who submit themselves absolutely to GOD alone,
    while leading a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their
    Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
    Islam is not a name. Islam means Submission to God alone. Muslim is an Arabic word that refers to the person who Submits to God alone. Submission involves an active daily process of remembering and worshiping God alone.

    May the peace and blessings of God be upon you.
    Women and men are equal in Islam. Look at the treatment of women here in USA. A women is raped every 3 minutes in USA according to the statistics. That is only the data that was reported wonder how many go unreported.
    How many of us American stop and give the right of the way to women which is a common thing (at least in Pakistan where I have been). People stop their activity (game or what have you) to let women pass.
    Good and bad are in every society. There are people who follow Islamic teaching and treat their women like a pearl and there are people who don’t follow Islamic teach and treat their women like crap.
    Same in US, UK, Russia, China, India, Mexico, Brazil and the rest of the world.
    Beating of women is also very common in many other societies … lets face the fact … Islam gives women more right then any other religion and I can prove that if someone needs me to.
    Pick up the old testament and tell me if I am lying but women who are on their period are to be considered un-holy and the things they touch become un-holy as well!!
    No such concept in Islam.
    I think people really need to start learning more about the teaching of Islam and stop judging it by the act of people who may not be following what they should.
    PEOPLE PLEASE GET SOME EDUCATION..The first country to ever recgonize the U.S.A after it’s independence was Morocco, a Muslim country. Islam forbids violence. All this propaganda that you see on the news is not because of their religion, it’s because some individuals want their own political causes. The State of Israel for example is occupied Palestineian territory. People do whatever it takes to scare the invading forces away from their country so they can make the political system the way they want it to be. Even the Catholic I.R.A group does terrorist attacks against the U.K. because the U.K. occupied northern Ireland.

  12. They will say it is emotional!! Simply put….. This has happened to me before where I was in the bed got out my body went into the next room where my parents were in a locked room…they were being intimate and my father had brought some things from work after I reaffixed myself back in my body…maybe three hours later….I was back in myself got up and told my father everything he was doing, what side of the bed he was on what things he had brought from work and where he put them…he was not suprised because he could do the same thing as a child…
