Sleep paralysis is freaking scary and you see scary things and whats so weird is that everytime someone has a night terror like that its always something bad or creepy.

Yes when I was in the hospital. I can't explain it all because its freaking weird. But I heard family talking that were sitting in the lobby and saw them faintly. When they came into my room to see me I started to talk to them about what they were talking about outside in detail. I also made them cry. After I was better they were like I was wondering how the heck you knew that lol. So I don't really know and am unsure.

Normally, most people's experiences have been that they leave their body and are floating around. Do u remember ever having left the hospital bed?

Reference please.

I've been under general anesthesia when I was about 12 and damn that was some trip. During the procedure I had an "out of body experience" where I experienced walking about the operating room watching the doctors work on my broken arm.

13 years on, the memory is foggy at best but I feel relatively certain about what I've experienced. I don't know much about what happens when general anesthesia is used on a person be it ketamine, halothane or other dissociatives. They produce funky psychological effects but as far as the probability of the mind leaving the body is concerned I wouldn't put a cent on it.

The human brain is a very complex organ and it's safe to assume that everything that the mind experiences happens within the brain including things perceived through our senses. Yes we collect light with our eyes but we see with our brain.

Pffft, I don't believe in this rubbish. Even if your consciousness could transcend the brain, it would have no way of percepting it's surroundings, since our mind doesn't have eyes or ears, it's our body's senses that make that possible.


^my exact thoughts on this......
