OBE and Parallel Worlds
The idea of the existence of parallel worlds has become popular.
The point of view, however, about kind or quality of the parallel
worlds is different:
1) The metaphysical assumption of astral parallel worlds postulated
as a physical explanation for the existence of astral worlds.
2) The physical assumption of physical parallel worlds with no
relation to astral worlds or to metaphysic.
In this following article the speculations relate to the second
aspect, the physical parallel worlds, which have nothing to do with
astral worlds (which latter exist as well as I believe, but are
of other quality).
At some few occasions I had the impression of visiting a past or
a future time and very seldom I had the impression of having visited
a parallel world. My experiences were too fragmentary to let me
come to any conclusion. Some additional hints I heard from friends.
Robert Monroe related in his first book (Journeys Out of the Body)
about a series of interesting experiences, which were quite different
than the usual journeys he did. He was of opinion, that these journeys
led him to an earth like world, where he incorporated a kind of
alter ego, a person who lived there and became obsessed by him.
The "physical laws" of this world were different in some
Some words to the theory of parallel worlds: at the moment of the
big bang, when space exploded into the three dimensions in form
of an expanding globe, time did not develop linear, as usually considered,
but like space time as well expanded in the form of a globe. All
parallel worlds of the presence are situated at the surface of the
expanding time globe. If this is so, however, an indefinite number
of parallel worlds should exist. Properly these worlds are not demarcated
from each other, but are merging into each other without exact borders,
becoming more and more different with proceeding time.
This above mentioned hypothesis excludes the wide spread opinion,
that a parallel world is created at very important events of political
or natural origin. I think, that the time globe expands by physical
laws and is independent from such anthropocentric aspects.
As there are anomalies in gravitation, there might be such ones
in the time sphere and thus in the connection between parallel worlds.
In discussions I was told of local anomalies in Vienna. As it seems
these anomalies were disturbances caused by paranormal influences,
whose source were persons with uncontrolled mediumistic abilities,
additional to the local anomaly. (These persons seemed to be in
an other world from one moment to the other and seconds later they
were back in their used surrounding.)
I have collected several German written articles of such events:

Laura Jean Daniels tells that she walked home at a city street in
the night by full moon shine. At once she was in the country in
front of a small house with a straw made roof and an old fashioned
man and woman before. Daniels just wanted to enter the house, when
she was back again in the city street.

We wanted to pick some flowers and went to a fallow of land.
My wife was buisy at a cherry tree and I went some steps further
and took a look at the surrounding - but this has changed
dramatically. No buildings were to be seen and all was void,
making orientation difficult. Alone the sunshine gave some
impressions of reality. I made a mark where I was standing,
in order to be able to find the exit later on. I went into
this desert and when I was sure that I had walked as far as
the flats, which had to be there in the real world, I turned
and went back - having seen nothing more than the void dessert.
Arriving at the mark with a next step he was in the real world.
His wife was very agitated and afraid, because he suddenly
was vanished and did not respond, when she was calling him.

(from the diary of Franz Grillparzer, a well known Austrian
(Bericht aus Bad Tatzmannsdorf, wo Grillparzer zur Kur weilte)
When Grillparzer was in the sanatorium of Bad Tatzmannsdorf,
he liked to have a daily walk in a nearby park. Once he entered
an until unknown part, with old trees and as lovely that he
could not stop to admire this beautiful surrounding. But there
was no bench to rest and he left this part. The next days
he searched for this lovely part of the park, but this part
no more was existing.

Miss A.H. together with her husband were searching mushrooms.
When she stepped over a root she suddenly was in a wild wood,
without the song of the birds as it was before. She did not
find her way back, and all hear screming for her husband did
not help, though he should have been near by. After 2 hours
she suddenly was back again in the former forest.
The following letter is a most interesting indication for parallel
worlds, it's a fascinating letter.
A letter from Garth:
I am fairly well experienced in the area of astral projection
and lucid dreaming. It seemed to come naturally. I never had
I am quite familiar with the other realms you discuss. I
may have different names for them, because of my development
which was void of outside influence.
However, I haven't seen this realm/place/dimension discussed.
At times I am positive I have travelled to an earth with an
alternate history. Some are fairly familiar, some have historical
paths which diverged long ago. One involved a world where
the US never went to war against Germany in WWII, only Japan.
Another was very divergent. Native Americans, the Navajo,
had developed an extensive trade network empire and "discovered"
Europe during the 11 century. Their governmental structure
eminded me of the Habsburgs Holland. Anyhow, They, the Navajos,
of this world were the economic technological superpower.
Many worlds I can't even place. Some are void of life because
of war or disease. Most aren't as technologically advanced
as our own. Some are much more so.
When I get details of important historical events in these
alter - earths I try to look them up here. In many cases I
can find something very similar, but of little import here.
Supposedly because nothing important grew out of the event.
But I distinctly recall never having read this info previous
to these dreams.
Have you heard of this? Have you heard of people Astrally
projecting into historically different earths? I would really
like to know.
Ironic you mention Monroe (English title: Journeys Out of
the Body). I read his book at a young age and I think I learned
a lot. Like I said before, I think my natural ability to lucid
dream helps me astrally project. I am able to put myself into
a very alteredstate of consciousness which seems quite helpful.
I'm currently trying to find others who do the same inter
world travel I (think) I have done. No luck so far.
If you find time I would very much appreciate any info you
I wanted to point out a few things: First of all the indians
I describe as Navajo shared physical and cultural traits with
other indians local to the area. Namely the Hopi and the Pueblo
(I've been researching). The height and braids are definately
right for the Navajo, but the ones I saw or at least remember
wore white face paint and had red circles painted on each
cheek. This is more Hopi (still looking up any meaning - the
style of painting usually meant somthing). The Pueblos themselves
were the city builders. I just wanted to point this out befor
some expert on indians found errors. Now in our history neither
of these groups worked together. The Navajo were the enemies
of the Hopi and maybe Pueblo IN OUR HISTORY. This is one thing
that ended their nascent trade empire.
Now its possible that in another timline these groups were
amicable and even formed into one tribe. This would explain
the sharing of traits and would prevent the strife from occurring
that ruined them in our timeline. They may have just stuck
with the name Navajo. The name Navajo comes from the Apache
and basically means enemy so all these integrated groups would
I think if we assume that the three groups: Hopi, Pueblo
and Navajo combined/intermarried as shown by traits of all
three represented in the individuals seen we are O.K.. Unlike
our world where the three tribes stil fight. A united group
would have been the only thing strong enough to forge a strong
Lastly the WW II alter history may have similarities with
some stories. I don't know. I was told there is a story (name
unknown) that sounds similar.
