"Reality is extremely complicated and dealing with it in its totality is impossible"! Page 3, last paragraph:
With the last half of his statement in mind I am now thinking that "reality" can only be "dealt with" in what I call bite-sized portions. And if we consider that the possibility of a truly shared reality comes in relation to our complete communications (as in the "ARC" triangle described as Affinity-Reality-Communication) then those "bite-sized portions" or morsels must be formed and grokked - in, during and through our communications with one another.
I was inspired to begin reading this book (by Stanislav Grof) from an article in "The Mountain Astrologer": "'The Matrix' as a Birth Process" by Jeffrey Kishner who refers to the work of Stanislav and the "four stages of the birth process" that Stanislav called "Basic Perinatal Matrices" and through these reference (that I am just now being introduced to) I have immediately realized they give me the best reference to my personal "biographical and transpersonal experiences" that I have yet to fully account for.
Also to be noted is that the book of "...Revelation ..." is a very important additional reference (along with the paradigms surrounding the presentations of that material).
