Quote from: Rye on March 24, 2018, 16:30:36I see your point. There was most definitely a moment of great effort followed by a feeling of, ´yes, I´m free... up and away´.
QuoteFor several weeks to several months I´ve been consuming the literature on the subject, so, from a prior perspective, I doesn´t surprise me to have ´dreamt´ about it since it was what I was thinking about during the day.
QuoteWhat was most indicative, I feel, of how ´real´ (or perhaps rather, authentic) this experience was, was my state of mind afterwards. Fully awake, I was aware of being connected into something. I made the conscious decision to close that faucet... I can´t walk around all day having music playing in my ears...
QuoteI´ll let you know how it all progresses in this post.

Quote from: Rye on March 25, 2018, 15:30:20At some point you´ll have to ask for confirmation from another consciousness of shared experience, like the shared dreaming in the movie Inception; or two points of contact between the physical and non-physical (two points required to make a line), like Madame Blavatsky asking her Indian friends to project over to London to read the Times. Putting aside what is ´real´ (Nabokov wrote´reality´ only makes sense put in inverted commas) you have to determine the relationship between the physical and the non-physical: even if the entire universe is all dreamt up by me and I´m the only consciousness.
QuotePut another way, I´m not just interested in having more vivid or meaningful dreams, but I want to enhance my current ´reality´. I want to grow towards the sun, I want to move to the next level of existence. If this is part of the way then it´s part of the way. If it isn´t, then it isn´t, I don´t mind.

QuoteRobert Monroe, in ´Journeys out of the Body´, writes about comforting a sick boy while projecting. Later, in a projection, he encounters the astral body of the boy, who has since passed on. The boy asks him, ´Where do I go now?´Later on, Monroe reads in the newspaper that a local boy has died after a protracted illness. The reason for reporting this would seem to be to suggest the boy Monroe meets projecting and the local boy who´s died are the same boy, although Munroe doesn´t try to prove it.On another occasion he visits a family who are aware of his presence and considers contacting them in real life.In both cases he is looking for a logical or causal connectivity between physical and nonphysical experiences that are independant of him as observor.
Quote from: Xanth on March 27, 2018, 05:57:08That's perfect. The problem though is that you use phrases above as if you did.
Quote from: Xanth on March 27, 2018, 05:57:08Would you care to venture a guess as to why experiences independent of the observer very rarely happen (if at all?).

Quote from: Xanth on March 28, 2018, 21:44:01I train in Yoshinkan Aikido, and ironically, that's how we train. Practice, practice, practice... then understanding of how it works.
