For posterity's sake, from Gowan's Trance, Art and Creativity:

"It goes without saying that any approach by the conscious mind to the numinous element is not without its dangers. Elsewhere (Gowan 1974:134) we have seen the traumatizing effect of the "not-me" on the young child at stage three, and we have detailed the dissociation occasioned by the premature rupture of the conscious overlay, exposing the collective preconscious in our discussion of developmental forcing (Gowan 1974:187). "

Gowan on human exotic abilities in Operations of Increasing Order:

Let us first define our terms. By "genius" we shall mean "possession of genii" (rather than a very high I.Q.). By "precocity" we shall mean not only accelerated accomplishment of developmental tasks, but the perfected completion of some extraordinary social skill at an amazingly young age. (These definitions avoid, to some extent, the tautology that if genius is defined as having a very high I.Q., and precocity is defined as a very high first derivative of intelligence with respect to time, namely rate, they are essentially the same.) Furthermore, our definition of genius is perhaps a poetic way of saying that access to right-hemisphere function is operant.

You're never taking these away from public discourse.

This Gowan guy really needed to get a brick in the face.
 Quoting: Kaw-Liga 21747185

Well, he never did get a brick to the face. Instead, he ended up getting the position of executive director and president of the National Association of Gifted Children from 1975-1979. The more that I think about it, the more I realize that, in this country, the greater and more outlandish the claim and an almost disregard for human consequence seems to be heavily rewarded at a high level.

At the least, I think that gifted child programs suffered from a more severe case of group think than NASA did with the Challenger.

They are probably connected.
