This is an old story. It says the spiritual experiences are concurrent with
physical events in the brain. It does not tell whether 'one with the universe'
and 'floating from his body' are real or just hallucination. Just like your own
experience during regression, you are not sure whether it was real.

Meditation that causes the perception of disembodiment is concurrent
with a cessation of activity in certain parts of the right parietal
cortex. That's when the person feels "one with the universe" and
floating free from his own body.
