A Quote by Michael Murphy on contemplative, knowing, psi, phenomena, thinkers, antiquity, paranormal, mystical, claims, and philosophy

However, given the ancient witness to contemplative knowing and the great abundance of evidence for psi phenomena, many sources of which I cite in subsequent chapters, it is a great mistake to exclude such things from our accounts of human nature.  That is why many, if not most, great thinkers since antiquity have given paranormal events and mystical truth claims a central place in their philosophies.
