Monday 12th June 2023 8 p.m. BST - via ZOOM - Rodrigo Montenegro - What does science know about OBEs? A brief introduction to OBE theories and phenomenology REQUESTS FOR AN INVITATION CLOSE AT 7.30 P.M. ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT
“Out-of-body experiences (OBEs) have been reported since the Bronze Age and registered orally in the folklore and mythologies of ancient societies. What does science know about it today? This presentation will look at the current knowledge gathered in the field since the onset of the 1st laboratory experiments to contemporary theories explaining OBEs. We will further examine research limitations in the field from a phenomenological and neuroscientific standpoint, looking at ongoing experimental experiments by the lecturer and the challenges that researchers face in studying this phenomenon. More so, we will look at the impact that the development of OBE science would have on society, looking at the psychological shifts it makes on out-of-body experiencers”.
