Here are the questions to facilitate the discussion of chapter one. Again let me remind you that this thread will be dedicated to the first chapter. To avoid confucion and keep the integrity of the structure of thos discuss please do not discuss and other section of the bood in this thread unless you're making a brief mention as it relates to this section. Please read the chapter before joining the discussions. It would also be helpful if you jot down your ideas beforehand so everyone will have something to bring to the table thus reducing the occurance of "group think." During the discussion you may change your ideas but first have some ideas to change. Your answers should be substantiated by what is in the book. However they can also show your own independent thoughts. 1. What are some characteristics of religions created by left brain societies? 2. Can a left brain society develop itself spiritually? 3.

What are your initial feelings or conceptions about trance? Ancestors?
