Again, I quote from the paper:


The present single-case study examined functional brain imaging patterns in a participant that reported being able, at will, to produce somatosensory sensations that are experienced as her body moving outside the boundaries of her physical body all the while remaining aware of her unmoving physical body. We found that the brain functional changes associated with the reported extra-corporeal experience (ECE) were different than those observed in motor imagery. Activations were mainly left-sided and involved the left supplementary motor area and supramarginal and posterior superior temporal gyri, the last two overlapping with the temporal parietal junction that has been associated with out-of-body experiences. The cerebellum also showed activation that is consistent with the participant’s report of the impression of movement during the ECE. There was also left middle and superior orbital frontal gyri activity, regions often associated with action monitoring. The results suggest that the ECE reported here represents an unusual type of kinesthetic imagery.


AN UNUSUAL TYPE.

Again, if this activity was just the same activity as a dream it wouldn't be UNUSUAL. You couldn't even say she was having an OBE because there was nothing UNUSUAL about her brain activity when she was having this experience.

The study ended like this:


This is the first study with a non-pathological participant who is able to elicit an ECE upon demand. Clearly, replication is required to ascertain if this pattern of activation is similar in other people who can have self-initiated ECE. The existence of such a case and its presentation raises the possibility that this phenomenon may have a significant incidence but unreported because people do not think this is exceptional. Alternatively, the ability might be present in infancy but is lost without regular practice. This would be reminiscent of the discovery and eventual study of synesthesia that some researchers now hypothesized is more prevalent in young people or can be developed (Deroy and Spence, 2013; Simner, 2013).


So what you're saying isn't making much sense. If this wasn't UNUSUAL there would be no need to look for thes patterns elsewhere because these patterns are not unusual and no different than someone dreaming or meditating.

The paper is telling you that they found UNUSUAL activity when the person was having an OBE.

I didn't see it in the Science section. I'm not discussing it in terms of Metaphysics but Science.

Sort of. Unusual imagery.

The results suggest that the ECE reported here represents an unusual type of kinesthetic imagery.


Unusual because she could enter the state at will:

The present single-case study examined functional brain imaging patterns in a participant that reported being able, at will, to produce somatosensory sensations that are experienced as her body moving outside the boundaries of her physical body all the while remaining aware of her unmoving physical body.




Again, if this activity was just the same activity as a dream it wouldn't be UNUSUAL.


Her actual conscious state was unknown. Can you provide examples of other brain scans during during kinesthetic dreams? During hypnosis? Are they different from those of this subject?

PhoenixOD
Is she really having an out of body experience or is it just a dream? Can she accurately report exactly whats going on in the room as she leaves her body?

If not then its just an intense dream state.

Why don't you try it and see for yourself. Anybody can induce one, with enough practice. When it happens for real, there will be no question about it.

A person who REALLY wants the answer to the question you posed, should see it fr themselves. There's nothing to be afraid of, and all to gain. One minute out of body, will reveal more about reality to you, then a 100 lifetimes of prodding around in the darkness.

So the question is, do you really want to know the answer? Irrefutably? Or do you want to wait on these slow a$s scientists to spoon feed you.
