Medical science has unlocked some of the most complex secrets of the human body and universe, yet doctors struggle to explain real out of body and near-death experiences. Some write these intriguing episodes off as being mere hallucinations, but increasingly medical science is seeking hard evidence to explain these unexplained events that are true - but defy rational explanation.
From the widely-studied case of Pam Reynolds, to non-death "OBEs" common amongst pilots (including Charles A. Lindburgh), to dubious but no less intriguing cases like the one that inspired Heaven is For Real, these instances of real out of body experiences will have you wondering, is the mind far more than it seems?
