Have I had a near out of body experience? [See details]?

Asked by XOIIO (18145points) April 29th, 2010

I was riding the bus, and I zoned out, thinking about something I could do on the bus, and really pictured what was hapening and almost “saw” it hapening, then I felt sort of a chill and emptyness, then warmth dropping into me and stopping and that’s when I stopped zoning out. What was this? Was it a near out of body experience?

I can’t answer if it’s an out of body experience, but I rexognize it as well.
It’s something, I’ve found, that you can provoke, if you try to.

I can sometimes do that when I’m thinking about something and trying to go to sleep. The most accurate thing I can call it is an “almost” dream.

The psychological term for it is “dissociation”. But not at a worrying level.
