One young man tried to kill himself by taking an assortment of pills – Librium, Demerol, Valium, Dilantin. As a result of this ingestion, he remained unconscious for four days. He remembers finding himself in a gray area:
"The only thing that I can remember about this is just grayness. Like I was in gray water or something. I couldn't really see anything. I couldn't see myself there, either. It was just like my mind was there. And no body."
While he was in this state, he felt good:
"Normally, I'm a very anxious, a very nervous person – a lot of fears and things like that. And during this, all the fear was gone. I had no fear whatsoever. Almost an adventurous feeling. Excitement."
Dr. Ring: "Did you want to stay in that condition?"
"Yeah. It was a very good feeling."
Maybe an old house you lived in, or school, whatever. Where are you when you're thinking of that place? Where is your mind, I mean, not your body? Does your mind/spirit "go" there when you think of that place?
Does it *really* travel? I don't know. I may never know the answer. But it feels that way, and that's good enough.

Is there a condition for when you don't remember your dreams? I would love experience all this weirdness everyone else does. Unfortunately I only remember one dream in my entire life and that was when I was very young. It was horrific, but still a nice escape from reality.
I don't believe in out of body experiences. I think there is a rational explanation for everything.
