I doubt this is a legitimate scientific enterprise (certainly the group is not affiliated with UCLA, as the press release claims). Some considerations: There are zero pages on the UCLA cite that mention the Out of Body Research Center or experiment author Michael Raduga. Raduga has no scientific credentials or a university degree of any kind. In a forum on his site he admits, "I had interrupted my education in university (law and managment) some years ago when started teaching people OBE. But I feel myself like a free scientist. And I use scientific view as much as posible. This is only right way to bring this field on new level." Raduga has a booklet titled, Conscious Evolution 2.0: What The Bible, Alien Abductions And Near-Death Experiences All Have In Common? which is an excerpt from his 500-page book School of Out- of-Body Travel. The book has no bibliography - rather odd from an academic. The abduction info comes from the website UFO Casebook, not from original sources or even UFO reference books. Raduga’s OOBE videos feature a scantily clad young lady in various alluring poses. (Apparently, funding constraints prevented the centre from buying bed sheets - see screen cap at the link below) Finally, this experiment started only three weeks ago, yet the results are described as "proof", despite not being published in a journal of any kind. They used PR Web instead. My blog post has links for these assertions: http://tinyurl.com/3wqo55w Listen to 'Strange Days...
