Explain the differences in our descriptions, and, more importantly, explain your own definition of the paranormal, a definition that applies to your life, your understanding of the limits of what you know.

We talked about paranormal activities. Not ghosts and what not but things that are life changing. Things that dont happen often. will all this be ok?

1. What is the relationship between William James’ Divided Self (conscious vs. sub- or, unconscious), Kripal’s Double Self, and Left-side vs. Right-side brain, as described by neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor’s TED talk (shown tomorrow in class)? Having described these relationships, as you see them, use this explanation to analyze the ways in which you—rationally, experientially, transcendentally etc.—have arrived at your own worldview/beliefs/faith/religious views, etc.

2. Throughout the text, Kripal has emphasized that “trauma” is an important part of the paranormal experience. He has also defined the paranormal in a fairly narrow manner. I have described the paranormal in a far looser manner and under-emphasized the importance of trauma. Explain the differences in our descriptions, and, more importantly, explain your own definition of the paranormal, a definition that applies to your life, your understanding of the limits of what you know, or can know, and the benefits/problems (for you) of using the paranormal to redefine, or stretch, your “normal.”

3. Kripal has offered several interpretations of how religion becomes easier to understand. Explain at least 2 of these interpretations and explain the interpretation of religion that works best for you. You are free to critique Kripal (and myself), but provide a solid, nuanced argument of how you interpret, positively and negatively, religion, or, if you prefer, spirituality.

4. Focus on “Ch. 12: Reflexive Re-readings,” and then present your interpretation of a reflexive re-reading. Having done so, consider how this type of reading produced understandings/experience that were personally meaningful to you during the course. Choose one (or a couple) examples of these understandings/experiences and unpack them in as much as detail as possible, perhaps providing the “and-both” approach, rational reductionism and/or “the school of more,” approach, etc.
