Suddenly comparative religion has taken over psychology as gateway field mapping the imaginal. The imaginal has flown away from Hillman's Mediterranean/California Pacifica's grip, landing in mid-southwestern New Mexico's surrounding regions with its intellectual core at Rice University in Houston.
Metaphors of the unknown, the impossible paradoxically makes presence into the real inexplicably, moving along history by way of cultural variations of itself. "As if" cultural similes to which we are contributors. We are writers of the fantastic impossible and its emerging possibilities. Kripal brings this notion into the field of religion, specifically comparative religion, extraterrestrials included.
