This book opens with the author’s experience with the ‘Lucid Light Stimulator’ in Switzerland. This presents him with his first experience of ‘Astral Travel’. From this he takes the reader on a historical, theological and mystical journey through the history of the ‘out of body experience’ in all its varieties and forms. The second half of the book discusses the science behind the experience. It reviews some of the latest research in the fields of psychology, neurology and neuro-chemistry. It then attempts a short explanation of why quantum physics may be the unlikely source of answers to the mystery of the out-of-body experience. The final section presents the author’s new model of how exotic-sounding concepts such as Bose-Einstein Condensates, Einstein Rosen Bridges, Zero-Point Energy, microtubules and coherent light can be used to present a totally new explanation of how ‘Astral Travel’ really does involve a journey – into inner, not outer, space.
About The Out-of-Body Experience
Join acclaimed author Anthony Peake on a historical, theological, and mystical journey through the history of the out-of-body experience. Beginning with his own unexpected introduction to astral travel, and drawing on fascinating accounts of ordinary people whose consciousness achieved escape velocity from their bodies, Peake digs into cutting-edge research in psychology, neurology, neurochemistry, and quantum physics that holds the potential to illuminate this uncanny phenomenon. He reviews all the pertinent theories, finally tying together all the threads and introducing an astonishing new explanation of his own.
