Why Astral Projections Feel “More Real” Than Physical Waking

Some people, especially individuals new to Projection, upon having their first Projection proclaim that it was “more real” than their usual physical reality experience. Let me try to explain how this sensation works.

If you really think about it for a second, saying that something is “more real” is a strange comparison to make with something else. If something is “real” then how can something else be “more” real? It’s either real or not real. It’s one of those statements that has no gray area. It’s very black and white, on or off, 1 or 0. The better way to describe these experiences is that when compared to your physical reality perception they are simply “different”. Why are they different? Because while you’re physically awake you’re experiencing this reality *through* the filters (5 senses) of your physical body.

When you’re projecting, you’re not using those 5 physical senses. Now, understand, for your ENTIRE LIFE up until now, you’ve been using those 5 physical body senses and they have formed your entire reality for as long as you can remember. You’ve become entirely used to how your physical body feels when experiencing this physical reality. So what’s different about it when you’re projecting? While projecting, for the first time in your experience, you’re using “other” senses/perceptions to experience the reality through.

So, what’s going on is that you’re experiencing a reality with different filters on, perhaps even LESS filters than you’re normally (physically) used to. This is why a Projection FEELS so “different”.

Let me try to put it another way. Have you ever bought a brand new pair of shoes? The first time you slip those shoes on, they feel very strange on your feet. Don’t they? They feel completely different because they’re filtering what your feet are feeling compared to your old shoes which were very familiar to you. It doesn’t make them any more or less “real”, it just makes your perception of them “different”. This “different” perception is all that’s occurring when you’re projecting. I’ve found that the “different” perception is also directly tied to “how aware” you are compared to your waking self. The more aware you are the “more real” people tend to describe their experiences.

I hope that helps a bit with understanding your experiences.

I also think that the senses deliver content, take sight its a stream of information all broken down into chunks of data like color, texture, shape, depth and many more all streaming into via the eye. Its then flicked around and assembled in some way to create the internal illusion of an external world so in effect we dont see but we receive data via the eye and the sense is called sight but we do not see.

in turning the awareness to the inside I feel we are using stored data that we recall and depending on experience reassemble into what we request or allow to be presented. To say we see is incorrect IMO. no eyes required and no collection of data required just a request and a reassembling of stored information.

For me this inner world in now "real" in every sense of the word and with it own unique characteristics as well and this is just a result of control and reassembly of data.
This is also only at the level of any dream or projection that has a base similar to waking reality and not states that are new experiances
