I do not agree with the answer by Winston and winston, yes there are numerous cases where a person claims to have have had an astral body experience while under sedation therfore yes, sometimes at a hightened state, the soul remembers.
An experiment showed it that it could definately be possible. Numerous patients were told to try and see what numbers were written on the paper above the patient IF he/she were to have an outer body experience and not many but some did come up with the right answers which should have been completely impossible.
The body is not just the brain so his answer though devised to make look scientific is actually not, the human body has an energy within us, everything has energy.
Energy can neither be born nor can it be destroyed, energy can only change forms.
Lord Krishna in the bhagavad-gita says: ‘’the soul never takes birth and never dies at any time nor does it come into being again when the body is created. The soul is birth less, eternal, imperishable and timeless and is never destroyed when the body is destroyed.’’
Energy can only change forms:
Lord Krishna says: ‘’Just as a man giving up old worn out garments accepts other new apparel, in the same way the embodied soul giving up old and worn out bodies verily accepts new bodies’’
What happens in between life and death?
Lord Krishna says: ‘’Many, many births both you and I have passed. I can remember all of them, but you cannot, O subduer of the enemy!’’
O Arjuna, all created beings enter into my nature at the end of a four billion, 320 million year cycle; and after another four billion, 320 million year cycle, I generate them all again.
