SEEING MYSELF: The New Science of Out-of-Body Experiences

SUSAN BLACKMORE    Book Number: 88051    Product format: Paperback

Leave your body to define the OBE and astral projection, meet astral travellers and their varied experiences as we delve inside the brain. Susan Blackmore's first book Beyond the Body of 1982 was hailed as a classic. As an impressionable young student, she had an intense, dramatic and life-changing experience, seeming to leave her body and travel the world. With no rational explanation, she turned to astral projection and the paranormal but soon despaired of finding answers. Decades later, a Swiss neurosurgeon accidently discovered the spot in the brain that can induce OBEs and everything changed. This crucial spot is part of the brain's self-system, and when disturbed, so is our experience of self. Blackmore leapt back into OBE research and here describes her long quest for answers through spirituality, religion, drugs, meditation, philosophy and neuroscience. 15% of the human race have had an OBE. Even more have experienced sleep paralysis, lucid dreaming, and the creepy sense of an invisible presence. At last, with the advent of brain stimulation, fMRI scanning and virtual reality, all these phenomena are beginning to make sense. 356pp in large softback.
