Have fun myth-busting.
I've had an OOB in experience after returning to this world after a trip to heaven during an NDE.
(This was probably in 1975, because I had my baby girl with me.)
Of course my experience is not proof to anyone here, but it was proof of the reality of OOBs to myself and to the dentist and nurse who were present
at the time.
While floating around the room I watched the dentist copy an ambulance number on his blotter, before he went back to my body a desperate last attempt
to revive me by calling my name.
That drew me, reluctantly, back into my body. Seeing the distress of the dentist as he lied about the treatment, I just had to tease him. When he
continued to lie I told him what number he'd written down. All he could do is blather that I couldn't have seen it because I was unconscious and it
couldn't be seen from where I was in the chair.
However he had to admit I was correct, so then he told me the truth about what had happened and showed a bit of belated concern for my welfare.
Being a person who believed in logical, materialistic rationality, (which I respect, btw,) he was just about as shaken by this proof of an OOB as he
was by thinking for a while his patient had died on him.
A funny coda to this story. Thirty years later I told a guy this story and he said I should see his dentist.
I was astonished to see this was the same dentist that I'd been telling him about. However he now had a whole string of letters after his name,
including first rate qualifications in anaesthesiology. On realising this was my old dentist the guy was going to stop going there, but I laughed and
explained the safest worker is one who has already seen he can make a fatal mistake and who has learned from it. Obviously this dentist had done a
heap of study since to make sure he never had a real disaster in his surgery.
