‘Astral travel’ is the strange feeling that some people experience. It’s a state that feels almost like a dream, but much more real. An individual can travel around the astral plane without being disconnected from reality. The astral traveler feels that part of him has left his body and floats above him.
The Science and Art Behind Astral Travel Research
Any scientific investigation of this phenomenon requires a large investment of time and money, so those researchers wanted to study the cases decades ago. They wanted to see what caused that feeling of abandonment in some people, and they were unable to come to a specific conclusion due to lack of resources.
There was a split among those who argued that it was probably due to some neurological mechanism activated after suffering some form of trauma (or injury), eating a narcotic substance, induction through a hypnotic session, a near-death experience. or even to the lack of sleep or dehydration. There were also many mystics who pointed to instability in the temporal lobe of the brain. What was clear was that experiencing such a feeling is completely harmless.
Thus, in the absence of a decisive response, the mid-twentieth-century pseudo-scientific gurus knew how to use it to sell another of their unexplained paranormal experiences, delving so deeply into society to this day, despite the fact that well a number of scientific studies and investigations have already been published that provide the possible answers to this phenomenon, most people still believe it to be a mystical or paranormal phenomenon.
Astral Research in 2020 and Beyond
Nowadays, we can find that that is as normal and widely explained as sleeping myoclonus – which includes the unpleasant feeling of dizziness and awakening awake – is cataloged by pseudo-scientists as one process another of astral travel.
Inside this organ is the ‘vestibular system’, which is in charge of our body balance and is sometimes the one in which, before inflammation or pathology, we can feel dizziness, vertigo, floating or darkening sensations.
Dr. López came to this conclusion after studying 420 people. Half of them had some form of ear complaint with a history of dizziness and vertigo. The remainder were healthy individuals with similar characteristics to the other group – age and gender.
Interestingly, what first group members agreed with and those who were not hearing impaired but claimed to have also had some extracorporeal experience – 5% – was that they had been diagnosed with anxiety, depression ghost, depersonalization and even migraine.
