Atlas Evolved — Part 5 — Worlds Beyond the Rational (Nathaniel Branden and Ken Wilber)

Nathaniel Branden Podcast

Nathaniel speaks of the transition from rationality to transrationality marked by the loss of Patrecia and the formation of a new relationship with the woman, Devers, who would soon become his wife. He and Ken explore the nature of reason as it moves into vision-logic and then beyond. Nathaniel then tells the story of how he learned of Dever’s psychic capacities and his budding enthusiasm for this phenomenon. Both he and Ken reflect on the nature of paranormal abilities and their dismissal despite evidence of their existence.
