And, as far as I know, there are no such tests anyway.

Shamanism is a way to understand one's self and the wider world in a spiritual context that allows the practitioner to interact (I believe that you would say perceive to interact) with non-human species, and the environment.
How do you think it would differ from my understanding of myself - I allow no euphemisms or blurred concepts?

This is possible as everything is thought of as alive and sentient. It is a method that has served humankind for tens of thousands of years as a way to care for themselves AND the world around them in a much more holistic manner than our current paradigm.
I think that is perhaps a rather too rose-tinted view, but, yes, I do know what you mean in general terms.

For me, and many others, that is enough to give it value.
No argument there.
Where I would challenge strongly and dig my heels in is if you said that you taught children that there are spirits etc which are real instead of only believed to be by some humans. That, in my opinion, would be crossing a line between truth and falsehood.
