The 21st century has seen important advances regarding understanding of out-of-body experiences. Everything changed when, quite by accident, a Swiss neurosurgeon discovered the site in the brain that can induce and even control an out-of-body occurrence. Now that we have the availability of new technology (fMRI scanning and transcranial magnetic stimulation), we can now understand. We can now, with virtual reality headsets, induce out-of-body illusions. What a change in just a few years. No longer does the phenomenon occupy the fringes. We have uncovered another of the mysteries of the self and consciousness.
