There has been a lot of information made public in recent years about the Astral body and what it is possible to do with it. For example you can consciously detach your astral body from your physical body and with your consciousness inside it you can travel to various realms on the Astral plane, both lower and higher and you can even visit the places that the average person goes to when they die, and these can range from the horrible to the sublime. However not much information has been made available about the mental body which has a far greater range than the astral body and is virtually immortal, whereas the astral body eventually disintegrates. The realms of spirit that can be considered higher than the astral plane can only be visited using the mental body. Also the higher bodies of the individual can be experienced directly by human consciousness using the mental body. The mental body has the ability to become anything, anyone, anywhere within the realms of the material or spiritual universe. So for example with your mental body you could become an animal, any human being, an ocean, a star, a galaxy, a divine spirit, a state of bliss, or the entire universe. There are no limits on this. Once you have become that being or thing you can directly influence it from your awareness and comprehend all it's consciousness knows and is. In these terms, compared to the mental body, the astral body is very limiting. People who have spent many lifetimes using their astral body, eventually use only their mental body to explore the material and spiritual universe. It is this ability of the mental body to become one with anything that exists, has existed or will exist that makes it an essential vehicle for learning about our reality. If the astral plane is high school, the mental plane is college.

Now that you are "enlightened", you are ready to join the other enlightened ones, the Illuminati, as they usher in the NWO.
