The term “hypersanity” is a relatively new concept that is still being explored by researchers and scholars. It was coined by philosopher and psychologist Christopher Bollas, who defined it as a state of being in which individuals are able to transcend the limitations of conventional thinking and engage with the world in a more creative and intuitive way.
According to Bollas, hypersane individuals are able to see beyond the superficial and the ordinary, and are able to engage with the world in a way that is more profound and meaningful. They are able to embrace paradoxes and contradictions, and are able to see the interconnectedness of all things.
Bollas suggests that hypersanity is a response to the increasing complexity and chaos of modern life. As we are bombarded with more and more information, and as the world becomes more interconnected and interdependent, it becomes increasingly difficult to make sense of it all. Hypersanity, then, is a way of cutting through the noise and accessing a deeper level of understanding and insight.
There is still much that is unknown about hypersanity, and it is not clear whether it is a real and measurable state of being, or simply a philosophical concept. Some scholars have criticized the concept, arguing that it is not clear how it differs from other states of being, such as creativity, spirituality, or mental health.
Despite these debates and uncertainties, the concept of hypersanity continues to generate interest and discussion, particularly among those who are interested in exploring the limits of human consciousness and the potential for greater self-awareness and personal growth.
This lead me to my next question.
How can one obtain hypersanity?
