"In every culture of which we have some adequate historical record, we encounter spiritually radiated individuals with miraculous healing capacities, telepathic gifts (what was once called the 'reading of hearts'), precognitive abilities (traditionally known as divination or prophecy), clairvoyance (seeing objects or events at a distance in space or time), even, believe it or not, apparent literal floating or flight (levitation)."

--Jeffrey Kripal

from The Super Natural: A New Vision of the Unexplained, Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey Kripal (2016)
