Reality of the Unreal
Prophetic dreams, directional visions, and other ways messages from God and gods are as real now as they were in the past. They exist without belief in the same way the earth is round despite there is a rather large contingent that believes otherwise.
These things and experiences associated with them also exist outside the compartmentalization of faith, religion and medicine as we know them now. They operate as companions with, not in opposition to, social structures and the confines of ceremony.
