I have projected while awake, and you remember it when you come back to your body where you have two memories for that time - memories when you were in your body and memories while you were not in it; however, until you come back, one doesn't have memory of the other. It is not unconsciously projecting yourself per ce; rather, it is when your soul decides to, for whatever reason, leave. There is typically not an absence of memory, in my experience; however, while out of your body, experiences are more vivid where, in your body, it is harder to recall them vividly, though, you can recall them. It is hard to explain, but while out of my body, things are clearer than when I am in my body where it seems easier to access and sort through large amounts of information. Memories, experiences, and information are stored there and in the brain where, out of your body, it seems easier to access and process memories, experiences, and information that your brain has problems accessing.
