Question
When our Neshamah goes out of our bodies when we sleep, is it possible to be actually aware of what’s taking place? In other words, is there such a concept in the Torah world as an out-of-body-experience? If so, why don’t we all experience it?
Answer
The Talmud says that sleep is 1/60 of death in the sense of the feeling that one parts from the reality of this world. This is an example, if you may call it that, of an out-of-body-experience. I don't know if we can be moreaware of it, except, Chas Veshlom, a clinical death, where one really feels half dead. Rabbi Ro'i Margalit
