Robert Bruce (born 1955) is an English-born mystic author living in Australia. Bruce is best known for his studies of Out Of Body Experience, which first became public in the early 1990s through his activity in the alt.out-of-body Internet news group. Over time, he collected and peer-tested his findings in an evolving set of articles, A Treatise on Astral Projection, which he later expanded upon substantially to form his first book, Astral Dynamics, which has sold over 50, 000 copies as of 2008.
In 2008, Robert Bruce was listed as one of the world’s foremost OBE experts by EnlightenmentNext magazine.
The Mind Split Effect
A key concept in Bruce's theory of projection is the Mind Split Effect. In contrast to the traditional view that projection leaves the physical body empty of consciousness, Bruce's interpretation is that physical consciousness remains in-situ, but is subject to a duplication process. According to this theory, after duplication the multiple versions of a projector's consciousness operate largely independently, building up separate but simultaneous memory traces that compete when they recombine (cf. Schroedinger's cat), confusing later recollections.

Here's what has got me wondering. If we could somehow attain, or an individual was born with, a "multi" consciousness. Maybe this person(s) is two or more people due to a genetic anomaly, maybe this person(s) has multiple 'spirits', maybe this person(s) is "God", maybe this person(s) is just one consciousness, but uses time diffraction/dilation methods to appear as a multi-consciousness, who the [delete] knows.
It is then, maybe another obvious question to be answered as to what might become of two spirits in one body after death.
