This interview does not answer questions about God or religion. Dr. Bowen begins by discussing some of the factors that may have delayed his thinking about and conceptualizing supernatural phenomena within a systems framework. He talks about the development of his thinking about schizophrenia, cancer, and societal regression and how the ideas of Gregory Bateson and Al Scheflen on Aristotelian thinking influenced him. The sciences have long avoided investigating ï¿½supernaturalï¿½ phenomena because they lacked an adequate frame of reference and that, historically, high levels of emotionality have surrounded the facts relevant to understanding this order of events.
