The aim of this paper is to compare the exteroception and general phenomenology of naturally arising, or spontaneous out-of-body experiences (OBEs), sometimes also referred to as extra-corporeal experiences (ECEs) with those that have been induced via the use of hypnotic induction in order to compare their phenomenology. The similarities and differences emerged from this comparison offer a very rich description of what it is experienced in this particular state of consciousness.
