What do you know about this transpersonal realm? Such topics interest me greatly. One thing I am uncertain about is the Riso/Hudson theory of integration. They say that we integrate through all the types in a determined order: 5-8-2-4-1-7 & 3-6-9. I can see this at least as far as the direction of integration goes, such as 5-8, but I don't know about the rest. I think it would all sound great if it wasn't for the fact that the 8 we integrate to isn't a pure 8, but instead an 8 in the context of 5. The 2 would then be in the context of 8, and less directly in the context of 5. And all the way around back to 5. If they were all pure types, then I think admitting the 5-8 integration would committ me to agreeing with the full circle of integration. But they aren't all pure types. They are all types ultimately within the context of the main type, in my case, 5. What do you think?
