Out-of-body experience

Out-of-body experience is the feeling of a free-floating disembodied self detached from one's physical being, as reported for example by people who have been in a state of clinical death from which they have recovered. In such circumstances people frequently report looking down at themselves, lying on an operating table for instance.
