Brandon's Experience 2320
The experience was out of nowhere with really nothing to cause it. At the time my three cousins were visiting. I loved their company and always enjoyed spending time with them. I am an only child and generally very reserved around most people. But around them I could just talk freely. More like chatting mindlessly if you will, like many people admittedly do in life with one another.
So I was walking down the hall towards my bedroom talking to one of my cousins, most likely on the way to play some video game.
I can't really remember the conversation, as it was quite honestly not anywhere as memorable as the OBE. As I was just about to break the plane between the hallway to the room speaking with my cousin; I all of the sudden pulled out to a view hovering about myself looking down, like a fancy camera angle directors use in films.
And I was just watching myself, and my body continued as if I wasn't even their walking, more specifically, my body continued to speak on its own, mindlessly, like it didn't even need me there to keep talking.
It very amazing and shocking. Only lasting for about 5 seconds, and once I came back into my body I immediately stopped the mindless blabber my body continued for me and questioned my cousin about it. He stated that he noticed nothing.
The whole physical experience was very unique and I wish I could feel the same thing once again, but I don't know how or why it happened.
The only thing I really got out of it is the sense of a lot of the things we say to one another (small talk if you will) is really senseless and meaningless. I mean if my body just continued blabbing without the need of my mind and consciousness, how important could it be.
Since that time in my
life I feel like I have strayed for engaging in many conversions I feel are
pointless or trivial. It affects my ability to talk with many strangers, but I
feel like if I cant have a meaningful conversation with a person and just talk
about nothing just to get to know them, then maybe they are not worth meeting at
all. Just how I feel now after the experience.

Was the experience dream like in any way? Not at all
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes There was no form, just a view. Like a first person view in a shooting game. All I seemed to be was a mass less flowing consciousness of myself looking down at my body.
What emotions did you feel during the experience? I was confused and shocked at the time of the OBE. I was very much intrigued by it, but never frightened.
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? No

Yes As described above, I said in my house the whole time just looking down at the conversation I was having below.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes I could see and hear just the same as I can at any time. My feeling smell and taste where not really used for the brief time so I cant really comment on those senses.
