An out-of-body experience (OBE) is a phenomenon in which an individual's consciousness appears to leave their physical body and exist outside of it. OBEs have been reported by people from all cultures and walks of life, and have been the subject of much research and study in recent years. Researchers in the field of OBEs include scientists, psychologists, and parapsychologists, who are interested in understanding the nature of these experiences and the potential benefits they may offer.
The ancient Chinese YIN-YANG scholars believed that there are two natural, complementary and contradictory forces in our universe. The scholars named them as YIN and YANG. These scholars also believed that our universe consisted of five basic elements, which are Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth. The Five Elemental Energies (wu sing) represent the tangible activities of yin and yang as manifested in the cyclic changes of nature which regulate life on earth.
The training of thoughts and feelings, introduces into the soul and spirit the same organic symmetry with which nature has constructed the physical body. Before this development, soul and spirit are undifferentiated masses.

In this description, we shall take a man as our point of departure. As he lives on the earth, man at present consists of the physical body, the ether or life body, the astral body, and the "I." This fourfold human nature has in itself the dispositions for a higher development. The "I" by its initiative transforms the "lower" bodies, and thereby incorporates into them higher parts of human nature.
