The problem is that there's no evidence that those people who leave their bodies are actually going anywhere — and certainly not anywhere on Earth. One strong piece of evidence that the "travel" takes place in the mind is that those who return from out-of-body experiences can't give verifiable details or information about the places they've been or what they've seen. If real, astral travel would be incredibly useful.
There would be no need to send humans into dangerous conditions — such as the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan — to find out what the situation is (or if a meltdown is imminent); instead, engineers should be able to simply visit the site astrally to survey the damage and report back without danger of radiation contamination.
For that matter, if consciousnesses can fly, go through walls, and circle the globe, it should have been a simple matter for astral projection teams to locate Osama bin Laden during his decade of hiding out in Pakistan, and save innocent lives (not to mention collecting the $25 million reward).
The disincarnate consciousnesses of bilingual, astral-projecting spies could easily visit top-secret facilities around the world and return with important information about everything from corporate trade secrets to military nuclear codes. If astral bodies truly can visit other planets, then there seems little need for the $2.5 billion spent on the Mars Rovers, since scientists and engineers could simply travel there in astral form during dreams and provide detailed information about the geography, soil composition, ecology, and so on.

Thanks for sharing that! Yours is a really interesting story. I have never heard of an OBE like that one, not that I have heard of very many... It does sound pretty freaky... Since learning more about it have you had other OBEs? Sorry if you've already gone over this, I'm using my phone so it's a little hard to go through everything...
