Jonathan Zap has spent a lifetime navigating rabbit holes. In the nearly forty years of exploration since he first discovered what he calls, “the Singularity Archetype”, Jonathan has picked up many skills of navigating through paranormal experiences and esoteric research that he would like to share. He has learned a great deal how to avoid getting lost in rabbit holes, spun around by the carnival fun house mirrors of the unconscious, seduced by charismatic charlatans and many other slippery pitfalls encountered on a path of exploration.
Some of the topics of his presentation will include:
- Orienting yourself in an age of accelerating evolutionary metamorphosis
- Working with ambiguity and avoidance of confirmation bias, premature closure, halo effects and other cognitive blind spots
- Archetype possession and its classic symptoms – ego inflation, literalism, messianic delusion, proselytizing, etc.
- Recognizing the many trickster aspects of the paranormal and unconscious so that we can work with synchronicities, dreams, visions and charismatic experiences without being misled by them.
