Fox, Oliver - Extremely unwell after chloroform



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

A Record of Out of the Body Experiences – Oliver Fox

To this period belongs my only experiment with chloroform.  Having obtained about a teaspoonful from a medical friend, I poured a little on a cotton wool pad and proceeded very cautiously to inhale it.

I was lying on a sofa and my wife and Barrow were present.  After a few sniffs, it seemed to me that I shot up to the stars, and that a shining silver thread connected my celestial self with my physical body.  Dual consciousness was very pronounced.  When I spoke, it seemed to me that my words travelled down the thread and were then spoken by my physical self; but the process was simultaneous and I could feel myself among the stars and on the sofa at one and the same time.

From this Olympian height I discoursed to my small audience; but alas, the great brain was clouded!  I am told that I manifested a regrettable flippancy, and that my remarks did not constitute a valuable contribution worthy of preservation in the annals of psychical research.  Also, after the experiment, I was for a few minutes extremely unwell.

Therefore, all things considered, I cannot recommend the chloroform method of obtaining separation to a serious student
