Massoud A's Experience

Experience description:   

During sleep I woke up and saw only blackness it was like a void or something the interesting thing was that I didn't even know who am I or even what am I....it was only blackness I didn't even feel my body and even know that I had one! I heard a very pleasant feminine voice that smoothly called my name and after some moments I woke up...I were sweating all over my face and body....and shocked of what had happened....after sometime I understood that human body has some other unworldly properties rather than the physiology and anatomy I were studying as a medical student....life seems more meaningful and beautiful to me now
