The crucial requirement for radical transpersonal development is the explicit dynamic development of the negative direction of experience. Partial conscious phenomena are thereby considerably eroded enabling intense unconscious development of holistic intuitive ability. However far from being a pleasant experience, it usually involves a lengthy existential crisis with considerable psychological distress.

Though some erosion of all conscious structures is likely to take place, the external senses are principally affected.

As a result of this, the static nature of the rational paradigm breaks down to be replaced by a dynamic relative approach whereby physical and psychological reality become increasingly complementary.
