    Anyone know anything about Patrizio Tressoldi's research? Never heard of this guy but Nichols seems to think its strong evidence for the OOB state being real.

    I'm not seeing anything ground breaking on his site here https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Patrizio_Tressoldi and his youtube is all in Italian.

    Found this from Nicholl's site: http://www.grahamnicholls.com/blog/a-conversation-with-skeptic-susan-blackmore
    and the cited paper https://www.researchgate.net/public..._phenomenology_and_perceptual_characteristics

    It's unfortunate that discussions of these topics have to take place on religious radio. While the implications undoubtedly have religious overtones, it's sad that the science is placed in the margins of academic respectability.

    I'm curious now if hypnosis has been an overlooked gem for inducing oobe because hypnosis is widely considered unreliable at getting the 100% truth about anything, yet it is apparently more reliable than other methods which lack that stigma.

    True, but I have to say... for a "religious radio" they have had extremely interesting interviews in the past and the moderator strikes me as very balanced and fair.
    I don't know what one could ask more :)

    Plus they seem pretty open to touch on all sorts of different matters which is not always expected from radios affiliated to religious creeds.

    Cheers
