Case No. 363 - Phoebe D. Payne and Dr L. J. Bendit (Cases of)
In the revised edition of their book entitled The Psychic Sense, (Faber & Faber Ltd., 1943) Phoebe D. Payne and her husband, Dr L.J. Bendit, mentioned this case of a man, who had been given gas for a dental operation, he found himself

….. standing in the far corner of the room looking at his body in the dentist's chair. He saw the anaesthetist and the dentist at work, and, curiously enough, understood what they were saying to each other. He counted the teeth as they were pulled out, though he felt no pain.  He knew that he was alive and thinking, though separated in space from his body.  When he returned to consciousness, he mystified the two men by telling them what they had said to each other while he was deep under the gas.
