RM had his first out-of-body experience at the age of 16. Now, at the age of 55, he has had more than he can count. They usually happen just before he falls asleep; for ten minutes, he feels like he is floating above his body, looking down on himself. If the same thing happens when hes awake, its a far less tranquil story. The sense of displacement is stronger his real body feels like a marionette, while he feels like a puppeteer. His feelings of elevation soon change into religious delusions, in which he imagines himself talking to angels and demons. Psychotic episodes follow. After four or five days, RM is hospitalised.

This has happened between 15 to 20 times, ever since RM was first diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 23. He hears voices, and he suffers from hallucinations and delusions. Despite these problems, he managed to hold down a job as a reporter until 2002 and more recently, he has been working in restaurants and volunteering as an archivist. Then, about a year ago, he took part in a study that seems to have changed his life....

 Fascinating, Thanks for sharing this Bedeekin.
 
 It makes me think that maybe we should go back and try to find out again what these Neurological disorders really are.

 If you went to your local doctor and told him that you Phase regularly to another reality at will, he/she would likely want to line us up for Neurological tests as well. Actually in my case, that has already happened, lol.

 It's time for them to return to the "drawing board"!  wink

My thoughts exactly.

Wi11iam recently posted that "Mainly the amazement comes from having read so many experiences from individuals involved with AP-ing and a percentage of these would scare a lot of individuals, but not your average AP-er whom fearlessly faces off the monsters, meticulously records the methods and passes the info on."

This is evidently not true for some individuals.

He hears voices, and he suffers from hallucinations and delusions. Despite these problems....

I continue to find it fascinating how mainstream society perceives this to be a problem. One's delusions is another's reality. Neither one is more real than the other. The ONLY difference is perception.

Let's not forget though that sometimes these 'voices' and such can lead to horrible stuff. Also.. it's not that cool for the person experiencing them.

On the whole though I fully agree. Rather than treat it as an illness it could be better understood and who knows where that could take it.  smiley

Wow, nice article.

There's so much that we don't understand. And so much that is assumed that we understand. But we don't. Power to those people who keep looking.
