I'm still not exactly sure what the experience could be called, but probably an OBE (Out of Body Experience). >

From my reading in the literature on meditation, OOB and NDE experiences, it seems to me you reached a deep meditative state. The books warn that one should have training to do this, but obviously the first meditators learned how to reach that state on their own. In OOB's generally the person leaves their body and observes events around it or "flies" around and observes other events nearby. One friend of mine described leaving her body in the operating room during her hysterectomy; she went to her priest to get reassurance that she had not done something wrong, and discussed it with me for reassurance also. In one famous story corroborated by a third party, the woman was having a heart attack in the ER, left her body and floated up outside the third floor of the hospital, and through a window saw a tennis sneaker on top of a high filing cabinet with one shoelace tucked under it. The tennis shoe was found a few days later, just as described. - I agree with you that the most apparent connection with mysticism is quantum physics, and it is why I believe our consciousness arises at a quantum level in the brain.
