Some might say that we have found God or discovered something about His nature. However, we only conducted this experiment in order to prove that the subject of our research can be found in ancient sources like the Bible

A group of volunteers reported at the OOBE Research Center and were instructed to perform certain procedures during morning awakenings in order to replicate the biblical account in which Elijah awakens, sees an angel, eats food that wasn't there before, and goes back to sleep (1 Kings 19:4-6). A total of 15 subjects completed this task. Meanwhile, it was calculated that the statistical probability of seeing an angel as described in the Bible over the course of a lifetime is about 1 in 5,000.(Full report)
The prophet Elijah, often mentioned in the Bible and the Koran, is one of the most significant figures in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Nevertheless, this study has shown that he may have encountered the phenomenon of lucid dreaming, which also served as the cause of some of the religious experiences in his life. Judging from it all, the same can be said for other biblical figures.
The fact that anyone can re-experience this biblical miracle by following simple instructions indicates a high likelihood that the same process occurred spontaneously for biblical figures. Most biblical figures experienced visions while they were falling asleep, sleeping, or waking up. Meanwhile, they underwent sensations familiar to any practitioner of lucid dreaming: sleep paralysis, internal noise, fear, and so forth. Job 33:14-16 directly states that God comes to people while they sleep or dream.
Due to the fact that lucid dreams that occur when awakening or falling asleep feel like real-life experiences, it can be difficult for those unacquainted with this phenomenon to differentiate it from reality when it occurs spontaneously. According to the research, millions have such spontaneous encounters with the phenomenon every year, and its prints are clearly present in the Bible.
Experiment lead Michael Raduga (http://www.obe4u.com) explained, "Some might say that we have found God or discovered something about His nature. However, we only conducted this experiment in order to prove that the subject of our research can be found in ancient sources like the Bible. This has no bearing on religion itself. However, one may conjecture how wide an impact this phenomenon has had on all human culture and history".
In October 2011, the OOBE Research Center brought about mass contact with aliens, thus proving that close encounters of the third kind can be the result of lucid dreaming, especially when occurring at the threshold of sleep. The center was founded in 2007 by Michael Raduga, an experienced OOBE practitioner who has authored 10 books. Experiments involving thousands of people in numerous countries have resulted in the development of simple techniques for achieving out-of-body experiences or lucid dreams. These techniques can be successfully used by anyone, and are described in great detail in the freely-available book School of Out-of-Body Travel.
