I am a scientist that works in the medical field. My university studies however were in chemistry and geology where my interest was in isotope geochemistry – determining environments where rocks were deposited and what types of food ancient animals ate.
I ended up working in bioengineering after graduation and took further courses in engineering.
Because of family health issues, I became interested in brain imaging and individualized medications/studies. Which then peaked my interest mental illness, spiritual experiences and mystic experiences of people in the religious communities…(not the mental illness, but wondering how mental illness could be differentiated between that and religious experiences.)
Having existed in the academic world for over 20 years, I have friends involved in the New Age and Magickal communities. Hence, I am interested and working with them.
How about you?
