Transcendence

Transcendence (literally "going beyond") is a loosely specified, poorly understood, superstitious, and confusing word used by some to describe the idiosyncratic and complicated outcomes that occur during and after a reasonably powerful Connection Event.

Notes

In reality, one does not "transcend" anything. One connects and becomes open to knowledge, experiences, and powers (greater self-efficacy, power to heal oneself, etc.) not available to individuals who have an only weak connection.

Maslow[1] provides a comprehensive listing of the feelings, shifts, and changes that occur when one "transcends" and achieves stronger Connection.
