Universal patterns

Living with these things all the time, I can see how there are certain universal patterns for these manifestations. A shaman among the Navajo or in the Congo will be saying things which sound so much like, say, Nicholas Cusanus or Thomas Aquinas, or C. G. Jung, that one just has to realize that these ranges of experiences are common to the human race.
