Memory loss: Combined with a brief out of body sensation suggests either alien abduction or focal ( temporal lobe seizure ) . Other possibilities include Migraine variant or Transient Global Amnesia.

Nobody understands: These remain a mystery of brain function -- or perhaps something beyond brain altogether, if you credit accounts of esp that go with them (i'm reserving judgement).
