astral body

The astral body is one of seven bodies each of us has, according to Madame Blavatsky. The astral body is the seat of feeling and desire and has an aura. How the physical body and the other alleged bodies interact is unknown, but it is said to be by some sort of occult force. The astral body is said to be capable of leaving the other bodies for an out-of-body experience known as astral projection.

The evidence for the existence of the astral body remains a mystery. There is no scientific evidence for such an entity. As James Randi says: the idea of an astral body "appears to satisfy most of the questions about dreaming, [life after] death, or hallucination, without offering any proof or appeal other than the convenience of such an invention and the resulting lack of requirement for applied thought and/or research."
