A Few Potential Ehes

R.A. White, Founder/Director of the Exceptional Human Experience Network (EHEN), has spread out a fascinating smorgasbord of some 200 potential EHEs. We have room for only a quick snack:

  • Accelerating thinking
  • Aesthetic experience
  • Conversion
  • Ecstasy
  • Enlightenment
  • Gaia consciousness
  • Guru/holy-person encounter
  • Hyperacuity
  • Inspiration
  • Intuition
  • Lucid dreaming
  • Lucky hunches
  • Meaningful coincidences
  • Peace beyond understanding
  • Peak performance
  • Serendipity
  • Soulmate experience
  • Synchronicity
  • World-Wide Web experience

Comment. Hard-core reductionists may complain that the listed experiences are "fuzzy." But are they fuzzier than those "ghost universes" or the newly predicted "sterile" neutrinos?
