What do you like about this subject?
I get to explore & discover. I get to think outside the box and not blindly follow those before me. As the saying goes… unless you are the head dog in a sleigh team, the view never changes. I refuse to follow the rear ends of my peers!
What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?
My goal will be unreachable. That is to add some credibility, viability, and peer respect to the field of paranormal studies. True exploration and discovery are swimming upstream in an ever-deepening sea of immaturity.
Something controversial or provocative about this subject
There was a time when being called an expert was a title that a person earned through dedication, education, and experience. Apparently, times have changed. “Knowing a great deal is not the same as being smart; intelligence is not information alone but also judgment, the manner in which information is collected and used.” ~ Carl Sagan.
