The Experience of… Experience

“Different traditions have different ways of categorizing experience. For the spiritual and the formally religious, it’s the peregrinations of the soul. Professionals of a more scientific bent situate experience in the same realm as perception and cognition, physical and psychic processes built into human beings and other living things that are, even to the scientistis, frankly still a mystery. Then there are the opportunists who take experience for granted and forge ahead with the project of altering minds by tripping people out with ‘new’ and ‘better’ experiences (at least in their own estimation).” (Bob Jakobson – Total Experience)
