OK, so there's this Usenet group called alt.out-of-body. The people who post here believe
that they are able to leave their physical bodies and float around, having adventures.
OOBE's. Out Of Body Experiences.
These people are nuts.
So I thought I'd have some fun...

I worked through it with the help of my Life Mate(tm) and maybe You can as well. First, You are correct; Science Fiction can be a major Destabilizing Force in Your life, especially if You let it Overwhelm other aspects of Your day-to-day existence which require Concentration and Care. But I will not lecture You, You already seem to be on the correct Path. My Life Mate(tm) and I devised a system where, whenever one of Us would experience the Dream, and Awaken with the Knowledge of visiting that Other Plane, the Other would become Aroused as well and serve as Transcriber Of The Dream, offering no Judgement or prodding, merely serve as a sounding board for the Experience as dictated by the Other. Being thisway Freed of the Focusing Constraints of pen and paper allowed the Dreamer to recall more and tune more Deeply into the Dream Realm just experienced. Try this with Your Life Mate(tm). You may find that Your Memory opens like a vast flower reaching Into unimagined vistas. >Now for some righteous indignation; I ordered the Novadreamer over a month >ago now, and the Lucidity Institute may as well have diappeared off the >face of the earth, from all the response I'm getting from them.

Many unseen 4orces are at work on Earth at this time, and what You have envisioned is truly Prophetic. I, too, have had Emotionally Charged Dreams about college campuses and explosions. There may be a Link between us. This is worth Investigating. If Humankind as a whole is experiencing a worldwide rash of Dreams in which the Destruction of Places of Higher Education is a common thread, there may be Significant Meaning in these symbols which may contain Warnings for Us as a Species. Perhaps it may be Time to mobilize a consortium to study this. I will contact my senator Tomorrow, and suggest You do the same, as should Anyone who Dreams of Exploding Schoolrooms. >-Suki the Probably Perpetually Peeved > >PS- On the plus side, the fish bowl and sweatsuit I ordered TWO weeks ago >are here.

I personally have never had a simultaneous Chanelling/OOB experience ("ChOOBE"?), but My Life Mate(tm) has, several times. The first few times were non-remarkable, and even enjoyable for Her. I, as the Transcriber of the Event, recorded Her revelations as quickly as I could (She was speaking quickly, I was getting Writer's Cramp...perhaps We should get one of those little dictation recorders?) Little of what She had to Say was interesting or important, so We spent very little time trying to decipher It, and eventually ignored It. What was Interesting, and what I wish to Point Out, was what happened the Fourth time the ChOOBE occurred: We had been unable to determine Who the Spirit was that My Life Mate(tm) was channeling while She was OOB, and, as I said, the Revelations were dull. So the fourth time it Happened, I just rolled over to go back to Sleep, rather than waste My Own Dreaming Time performing as Transcriber of the Boring Event. The Spirit inhabiting My Life Mate(tm) must have taken Offense at My reaction, because She immediately began Kicking Me in the Small of MY Back. I quickly defended MySelf by hitting her with My Pillow, which knocked Her off the Bed. She fell onto one of the Dogs who, startled, reactively bit Her on the Ankle. The sudden Pain immediately Recalled my Life Mate(tm) into Her body, forcing the Spirit out. However, She was unsteady on Her feet, and fell against the bookcase by the bed, causing It to topple. Heavy books fell on all of Us, including an enormous volume of The Collected Works of Piers Anthony, which hit Me on My head, and caused a concussion. I was hospitalized for a day and a half. So if I may Humbly offer any advice to Those of You who are considering OOBE during the Dream Time as a method of Channeling, it would be this: 1) If You are the Transcriber of the Event, do not shirk Your Responsibility. 2) Keep a glass of cold water handy, as an Event Ending Device. 3) Use the cold water at the first sign of violence from the Visiting Spirit. 4) Make the Dogs sleep downstairs. 5) Stay away from Piers Anthony books. ** Captain Infinity

It was not My intention to insult You or Your Family of Bees. I'll have You Know that I have the Greatest Respect for Bees. They amaze Me, the way They work so continuously and tirelessly, flitting from Flower to Flower, collecting Their...well, whatever it is They collect, I seem to have Forgotten right now...and fertilizing the Flowers. I am especially awed by Those members of Your family who are Bumblers. Science says They cannot fly, that Their wings cannot possibly lift such awkward bodies. Yet There they are, buzzing through the Air, and into My dog's Mouth, and stinging Her tongue, which swells up and gags Her, which makes Me drive hastily to the animal hospital so that She will not die. But I don't hold That against You, because such things are Offset by the other wonders that Bees bring us, such as when Bees are ground up and processed into vitamins. Tonight, when I enter the Dream Realm, I will attempt to project myself OOB and into a field of Flowers where You and Your Family live, so that I may Perceive You through My Ethereal Eyes, and marvel at Your Wondrous Dance in nature. May Kindness and Love and All Manner of Goodness Fill Your World, Captain Infinity

I'd love to hear of others experiences with >stuff like this, and I'll be posting what I find out as soon as I can! If I may, I would like to Answer Your message in two parts. The first Part will deal with OOBing outside the Earth. I have tried this Myself several times, and I must say that I was rather Disappointed with the results. I have managed to leave the Confines of Earth's Atmosphere four or five times (I think, though I never did keep count, actually). The first couple of times I Made the Mistake of Focusing on the Event (instead of Just Letting It Happen) and I was immediately Slammed back into my Body. This was a frightening and exhilarating experience. To be sure, I have often "Dropped" back into My body with sudden speed, but Never from such an awesome Height: above the Earth. It literally Took My Breath Away, and the shaking of the bed awoke my Life Mate(tm). I am Glad to say that there were no Lingering Aftereffects, not even any Friction Burn. The last few times that My Ethereal Spirit has escaped the Bounds of Earth, I have floated freely in the Vast Open Spaces of Outer Space. Please let Me tell You...Outer Space is *boring*. It is not like in the Movies ...there are no Space Battles going on Out There, no Blazing Comets whooshing by, and very few UFO's. Mostly it's just Empty. And the other Planets and Stars are a long way off...I doubt that I could stay away long enough to make the trip without My Body reclaiming My Spirit because of a Full Bladder. A Question: Is anyone aware of data regarding OOBOSE (Out Of Body Outer Space Experiences) by the astronauts? They're already *in* Outer Space, so the journey would be shorter. Plus, it would be Interesting if astronauts in space could have an OOB&OOSOSE (Out Of Body & Out Of Spacesuit Outer Space Experience) and journey back to Mother Earth. As to Your second point, that of an OOB journey to Area 51: I advise against this in Most Strenuous Terms. Area 51 is under Heavy Security At All Times. There would most likely be dreadful reactionary effects if You are discovered there, for both You and Your Family. When the Time Is Right, I am sure Our Government will provide Us with All We Need To Know about Area 51. Until then, I suggest that you Trust the experts Who are dealing with this matter and not do any investigating on Your Own. It May Prove Dangerous. I apologize if I have Overstepped My Bounds in making these opinions Known, but I truly Care for Each And Every One Of You, and do not wish to see Anyone come to harm. With Deep Respect and Love, Captain Infinity

Do you think the >government would have the ability to detect it? Do they have any weapons >that could harm someone while having an OOBE? Clearly, the Full Truth of the Events of Area 51 have not Yet been revealed to Us. My trust in My government is strong enough to Believe that what has Not Been Revealed is being kept Secret only for My Own protection. It would seem Foolish to Me to try to Circumvent that protection. That is why I believe it is Unwise to attempt an OOBE into Area 51. There may be Dangers As Yet Unknown. As for the Ability to Detect OOBErs, I certainly do not know. There is no way I can predict what Kind of advanced Alien Technology they have found on the ships that are housed There, or from the Teachings of the Visitors. For all I know, They may not only be able to Detect the Ephemeral Spirit, but to Harm It as well. This is a chance I am unwilling to take, and I would not Wish such dangers on Any One Of You, My Most Beloved Friends. I *do* know that there has been a recent Clamp Down on an Advanced Technology that was Introduced to Our Society, and that is the Cameras with the Special Ability to photograph the Nude Bodies of Fully Clothed Individuals. I am sure You have heard of this, it was Front Page News. If such X-Ray technology exists and is In The Hands of Our neighbors, is it that hard to Imagine that Special Technology exists to detect the OOB Traveler...and that such Technology would be in Position about Our Country's Areas Of Greatest Security? I would not presume to overstep my Bounds to advise You...I was merely making a Warning, driven by my conscience and my Love for all my Friends on this Froup.

I am always Disturbed and Embarrassed when I hear Other People's thoughts. They often reveal things I would Rather Not Know. To be Fair, however, they can sometimes Reveal Truths about Ourselves that we would not otherwise be Aware of. For instance, several months ago I decided to make it a habit to Bathe at least once a Week, after I accidentally tuned into some Stray Thoughts which revealed to Me certain heretofore Unknown Things about Personal Space. My Life Mate(tm) finds this a bit excessive, but I can understand Her attitude; She did not experience the same Thought Transference Event that I did. Still, it is Disturbing and Sometimes Frightening, to hear Another's thoughts. After much grueling experimentation, I have taken to putting Tiny Pieces of Tinfoil in my Ears, and this seems to cut down on the Amount of Mental Reception I experience, and it disturbs the clarity of those Stray Thoughts which *do* get through, diminishing them to a Low-Frequency Buzz, which fades into the background of Everyday Life. >I often find myself sitting in a crowded room, wondering if someone can >hear what I'm thinking. I'd rather they not know. A Friend of Mine has this same Phobia. He tells me He has lined His baseball cap with tinfoil, and that this helps. It would be overstepping My Bounds for Me to inform Him that I consider this device silly, almost whimsical, so instead I take pleasure in the fact that He is a happier person for it, which makes Me happy for Him. True, He is an Odd Fellow, but Who amongst Us can truly say that They are without Their Own particular eccentricities? Wishing You Serenity in All The Places You Walk, Captain Infinity

Thanks. > >Jerry Gross My Good and Dear Friend DaftSkag: Our Friend Jerry Gross is correct when He states that Your body cannot be invaded by Another Spirit while You are traveling the astral planes. I understand the fear You must feel about these things; leaving the Body unattended while OOB can be a major concern for Those who are new to this marvelous experience. This is one major reason that My Life Mates(tm) and I joined our futures; so that None of Us will have to be Alone while traveling in the Ethereal Realms. There is a different but related issue that You should be concerned with, however, and that is Body Theft by other Corporeal Entities. I made the mistake, many years ago (before joining with My Life Mates(tm)) of remarking to a cow orker about my OOBEs, not knowing that He had once worked for a medical supply company, and that He had many contacts...including some shady ones. One early morning about 5:00 AM, while I was having an OOBE in New Orleans (I've never seen a more beautiful sight than Sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico) He and an Associate broke into my apartment in Kitchener, Ontario, and attempted to kidnap My unattended body. I felt the disturbance in my Astral Substance and managed to Rejoin My body just as they were loading It into the back of Their van. After wriggling out of the body bag They had placed Me in, I fought Them off with little trouble. They were unable to hold Me; I sleep in the nude, am completely bald, and was voluntarily castrated at age 22...so They had nothing to grab onto. Using a self-defense trick I learned from watching Moe Howard, I poked Them in the eyes, debilitating Them long enough to escape and run to a nearby Police Station. Once I convinced the Police that I was not a danger to Myself or Others, They visited My apartment and discovered evidence that implicated My attempted captors. The incident was investigated and resolved. Shortly after this I moved to another city and met My Life Mates(tm). We now watch over Each Other during OOBEs to ensure that such incidents never happen again. Plus, We got a Dog to keep an eye on the Mailman. I don't trust Him.

My Good Friend Mr. Price, I cannot speak for what is "Normal", but one of my Life Mates(tm) finds this practice helpful to Her. Before entering The Bed for Her nightly Journey, She will sit with Her back flat against the wall and breath deeply in through Her nose, moving the mucous to the back of Her throat. She will also use Her Diaphragm to bring up phlegm from Her lungs and throat. Then She will practice Spitting for several minutes, into a small Collection Device (i.e. spittoon) that the rest of Us bought for Her a few years back. She says this activity cleanses Her and settles Her Inner Spirit, allowing It easier escape from Her Bodily Confines. Personally, I do not need It in order to attain a successful OOBE, preferring instead a bi-weekly enema. >Also,is the headaches a part and should they last for weeks? No, they should Most Certainly Not! Headaches which last for Weeks are a sure sign that there is Something Wrong with Your Corporeal Body. My own headaches do not Last for more than a few days.
