    Abstract:
    By virtue of a physical and psychic eukaryosis consciousness approximates a threshold condition which when surpassed and included creates a metanoia or change of state. Tendencies toward this metanoia (called by Fuller ephemeralization, and by Jung the transcendent function, by Toynbee etherialization, and considered under such different idioms as Sufic tradition and 'catastrophe' mathematics) conduce to an emergence in, of, and through consciousness which is analogous to religious intuitions of incarnation whereby the identity of mankind and godkind is experienced in generosity and precision of cognition and action. The incarnative intuition can be taken as a complement and corrective to seemingly external and incomplete notions of Self which have arisen from conventional views of 'salvationism'
    Notes:
    Youthful exuberance; writes Blake, "The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom"; and cf. Thomas Berry
