Episode Summary

What really happens during an out-of body experience? Husband and wife scientists Rebecca Warfield and Ben McCormick are trying to find out by subjecting monkeys to electric impulses. They see it as pure science, but to religious groups like Family Foremost, it is sacrilege. Desperate for funding, Rebecca decides to run the experiment with a human subject -- herself. She asks her assistant, Amy, to help. Amy, a secret religious fanatic, alters the experiment. Rebecca escapes from her body, but, unless she finds a way to communicate, she will remain trapped in an other dimension.moreless

      • Rebecca Warfield: God blessed us with curiosity. His questions lead to discoveries which in turn result in progress. Then without curiosity where the hell would we be?

      • [Opening Narration]
        Control Voice: We exist in this time and in this space. But where are we when we dream, before we are born, or after we die? What if we exist in many times and many spaces. Now... and forever.
