Actually, I never burn incense or harness the power of crystals.
But I get your point. Steve is open minded. When he began experiencing for himself things that others consider paranormal he began exploring his experiences to learn more about them. All he really did was apply the personal development strategy to his experiences to discern what they were all about. Since they help his growth, he continues to explore them. They can be useful tools. Seeing the future or knowing what someone is thinking or feeling are useful tools, wouldn't you say?
