A study of the differences and commonalities of near-death and out-of-body experiences

About the NDE OBE Research Project

The NDE OBE Research Project began on April 13, 2020, and is an ongoing study in which we 1) hope to identify and define differing types of perceived out-of-body experiences (OBEs), and 2) to discover the differences and commonalities between them that may or may not exist, focusing primarily on any possible catalysts, the event itself, and the process from beginning to end.

Study results for Phase III coming soon.

The Questionnaire

The questionnaire consists of 25 sections, each containing one or more questions. The estimated time to complete the questionnaire is from 30 to 45 minutes.

The Participants

The participants in this study are those who have had any type of out-of-body experience, whether this took place during a near-death event or not. There is not a control group of those who have not had an experience because this study does not seek any information on how these experiences or experiencers compare to such.

The Objective

This study hopes to determine the differences and commonalities between various types of out-of-body experiences (OBEs), including those that have taken place near death and those that have taken place during other circumstances.

Integrity of the Study

There is no incentive offered to those who participate in this study other than a copy of the results of the current phase of the study when that phase of the study is complete.

Participant Questionnaire

All who have experienced an out-of-body experience (OBE), regardless of whether or not they were close to death, are invited to be a part of this important study. To participate, please complete this questionnaire, providing as much detail as possible to each question. If you come upon a question about your experience in which you do not remember, please let us know this rather than guessing or assuming. Also, if you do not wish to answer a specific quesiton, you do not have to do so, but can just type in something indicating such to move to the next question. There are 25 sections with one or more questions, and the average time to complete this questionnaire is estimated to be a minimum of 30 to 45 minutes. Upon completing this questionnaire, you will have the opportunity to request that a free copy of the results of this phase of the study be made available for you to download (you will be notified after we are done with this phase of our study). If you have more than one experience you would like to submit, please do not answer the questions in a collective sense in which you mix all your experiences together. Please complete a new questionnaire for each additional experience. Thank you.

The only regisration requirement is your first name, email, and entering a password that you choose, and though the other personal information will be helpful if you choose to include it, it is not required to participate in this study. Any personal contact information you provide will never be used for advertising or marketing purposes. It also will never be given to others without your specific approval. YOU MUST BE 18 OR OVER TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS STUDY.
