Re: New paper on the neurocognitive correlates of the OBE

Hi Rainy Yes - he should know better. You should also read my article in the Skeptic, if you have not already done so, which will give some other angles. I have the read the Skeptic article but not for a long time so time for a re-read me thinks! This might sound odd, and I would put it more elegan...

Secondly, yes, blind people can describe visual items in their hallucinations, for a number of reasons. I've already noted that very few blind people (indeed, if any) truly experience no visual infor...

Re: New paper on the neurocognitive correlates of the OBE

So do blind at birth people report ''seeing'' in dreams? What is going on, if so? If I had to guess I'd say it's due to things like proprioception Close your eyes. Hold your hand in front of your face. Open and close you hand, wiggle your fingers. When you do this can you "see" your hand in your mi...
