I was visiting with my sister and her husband years ago and accompanied them to an informal get-together at the house of friends of theirs.
During the evening, I overheard a middle-aged, bearded man telling a group of people about his experiences in what at the time was a notorious
Brisbane (Australia) jail.
He said when he'd been there a while, he learned from other prisoners that some of them knew how to leave their physical bodies during the night in
order to spend time with their lovers in other cells.
The man said that over a period of months, he too learned how to do this. It involved meditation, he said, and took practice. He said that as he
passed through the walls of his own and other cells (on the way to the man who'd become his lover) he noticed that there were steel bars set inside
the cell walls. These bars, he said, were not visible on the outside of the walls.
Other prisoners warned him about the warders, who knew that some prisoners were able to astral travel (?) and deliberately made loud noises near
sleeping prisoners. Apparently (according to the man telling the story at the party) loud noises could cause death if the astral traveller (?)
couldn't get back into his physical body in time.
The man also said that not long afterwards, some of the older cells in the jail were pulled down, revealing that there actually were bars inside the
cell walls, as he'd seen when he was out of his body and passing through them.
He also said that if a prisoner died inside the jail, the body belonged to the State. He said the body remained the property of the State until such
time as it had finished serving whatever sentence had been imposed upon that person when alive.
He said that the guards were very sadistic and sometimes prisoners died at their hands. When this occurred, he said, the body was buried inside the
jail grounds and caustic agents were packed around the body to hasted decomposition so that by the time the body had served its sentence and could be
claimed by relatives, there would be no incriminating evidence left to reveal that the person had been bashed and murdered.
The day following the party, I told my sister and brother in law about what I'd overheard at the party. They told me that the man who'd related
the story had once been a highly respected member of the local community and head of the math department. He'd been arrested, apparently, for
leading a protest against the police when they'd charged several local people for possessing marijuana. When he'd continued agitating against
police brutality and victimisation, it was rumoured the police had falsified evidence against him, which in turn was responsible for his being
I have no way of knowing if what he said about passing through the prison walls was true, but the OP reminded me of what I overheard at the party.
I don't know if astral-travelling was the term he used, or even if he explained how he left his cell, except to say that he passed through the walls.
But if true, perhaps it's possible that the naked man in the OP somehow spontaneously 'dematerialised' for an instant ... only to wake up and find
himself in a strange location with no knowledge of how it had occurred ?
