In
 A Paradigm-Breaking Hypothesis for Solving the Mind- Body Problem
, Bernardo Kastrup details what has come to becalled the ‘filter theory’ of consciousness as an alternative tothe models of mind-body interaction currently dominating the scientific study of consciousness. In
Child Witches’: From Imaginary Cannibalism to Ritual Abuse
, sociologist of witchcraftLeo Ruickibe takes an in-depth look at certain contemporaryAfrican witch beliefs in the UK, with a particular emphasison the kind of ritual abuse exemplified by the death of KristyBamu in 2010. In
 Entheogenic Spirituality and Gender in Australia
, Joseph Gelfer details the findings of survey research into per-ceived gender equality in the Australia psychedelic commu-nity. Erwin Rooijakkers, a student of Transpersonal Psychol-ogy and Consciousness Studies at the University of North-ampton, gives an experiential account of his own visits toother worlds. Lara Bauer’s article explores the practice of psychic surgery in the UK, with reference to her own ethno-graphic fieldwork with a London based psychic surgeon. Andfinally,
 
Liam Sutherland’s paper explores the legacy of SirE.B. Tylor’s theory of animism, arguing that it is still a usefultool in the theorisation of religion.
We had originally intended to include a verbatim in-terview, conducted by Dr. Fiona Bowie and myself, with Prof.Erlendur Haraldsson in this issue. Unfortunately, due to somesort of technical malfunction, the audio recording disap-peared and the interview was lost. It is a great shame, but wehope to be able to conduct more interviews in future. Indeed,we are currently arranging interviews with folklorist David J.Hufford, parapsychologist George P. Hansen and master stagemagician Eugene Burger. So look out for those.
