The article features a fascinating analysis of the process of transcending during the Transcendental Meditation Technique, by neurologist Gary Kaplan, MD, PhD.
'The process of transcending during practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique is characterized by experiencing a thought on progressively subtler levels of the mind, until thought itself is transcended, and we arrive at the infinitely settled, blissful source of thought,' Dr Kaplan explains. He discusses how this process of transcending occurs 'through sound on the level of thought'.
In the process of transcending, 'that quality of sound, really a faint idea, causes an integrated response in the electrical activity throughout the nervous system,' Dr Kaplan says. 'You could say that through sound we are creating neurophysiological harmony. Our whole physiology resonates in that harmony as we return from meditation back into activity. . . and you don't even have to be able to carry a tune. . . .'
