Rene Magritte and J H M Whiteman
Type of spiritual experience
The Mystical Life - J H M Whiteman
Spatial openings [during out of body experiences] are comparatively rather common with me, about 160 having been recorded in the ten years 1943 to 1952. Sometimes the whole bedroom is seen this way through the eyelids. But usually something quite different is seen, in one case a bright sky with clouds, seen as if through a circular hole cut in the ceiling. The epithet spatial means that the spatial effect is exactly as if some physical object or scene were being observed from the physical body, but the light is not physical. The physical eyes are nearly always shut and consciously so.
