If that sounds mundane, let me add that I believe that 'sleep paralysis' is a real phenomena, but that not everything experienced during it is 'hallucinatory'. It's the above-mentioned breaking down of filters that enables the mind to function in ways that it normally can't. Remote viewing and astral travel can be achieved accidentally this way, I believe.
