The Mystery Life - J H M Whiteman

June 4th 1945 - This separation began with a spatial opening in which the surface of a whitewashed wall, two feet or so away, was studied with a full clarity of perception and the usual impressions of precise spatial position and of seeing through the eyelids of the physical eyes, which remained consciously shut.  The opening then changed to one in which heath like country was seen in a wide panorama, with steep ground in front; and almost at once I was conscious for a few moments of being separated and amidst the scene.
