another  project WORLDVIEW worldview theme         copyright 2023                Home         


More than most people do, I trust intuition, gut feeling, instinct, and unconscious knowledge— where I respect my brain’s power of pattern-matching. Not discounting dreams and synchronicity to the extent others do, I value the collective unconscious and brief glimpses I’ve had into Reality “with the curtain pulled back.” More wholistic than reductionistic, I appreciate what can't be measured.  I find science limiting.  I'm a visual thinker, sensitive to environmental cues—sights, sounds, smells, tactile insights—and to feelings! I’m especially alert to signs of danger and am good at detecting deception
