Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

There are quite a large number of people who have experienced the abyss within an out of body experience or similar spiritual flight, but who did not necessarily fall into it…

A description of the experience

The Witnesses – Thomas Hennell

Somehow I had got into a long and pointed glass case (there were two or three other such cases) filled with a peculiar unnatural light.  No possible way was there of getting out of this case, which nodded and tottered on the edge of a precipice; the case was somewhat flexible.  A well of dizzying depth was directly behind, which seemed bottomless, it might go clean through the earth; the remoteness of the place was ghastly, the sky was darkly ceiled
