That is a very interesting piece of article you wrote. However, I would like to ask you, what is the purpose of the article? To highlight the difference? Or to reconcile the 2?
In my opinion, the 2 can never be reconcile due to a very fundamental difference, i.e. the notion of a "self". While Astral Projection deals with a "self leaving the material body", hence acknowledging a "self" and a "permanent entity", Buddhism, Therevada or Mahayana rejects such notions.
