The Ever-Present Origin

incrementation of aperspectival knowledge. And it is to be emphasized once more that it is not the phenomena produced by parapsychology which are arational; rather, its efforts to assimilate other structures of reality and consciousness besides the predominant mental structure form the basis for an inception of an arational mode of realization. This mode will be completed when this dual science has dissociated itself from the mental-rational consciousness structure; when it grasps that something which cannot be illuminated ought not to be illuminated, that illumination would destroy it, and that it can be made transparent. Then, instead of the inferior fascination with the deficient magical phenomena to which many serious parties are succumbing today, a perception of space-timelessness and its pre-causal structure will emerge--archaic, primordial pre-spaceless-timelessness as the consciously emergent space-time-freedom.

Arnold Gehlen understands these "drive quanta" as repressed instinctual and aggressive impulses variously able to be released at any time. They can be understood not only as quantities, but more importantly, as quanta, i.e., intensities whose effect cannot be temporally predicted, thus accounting for a certain indeterminacy or acausality for this area. First suggestions and intimations toward a definition of the drive quanta can be found in Arnold Gehlen "Das Bild des Menschen im Lichte der modernen Anthropologie," Die Neue Weltschau, II ( Stuttgart: Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1953), pp. 81,-99.

With respect to G. R. Heyer "psychobiology" it can be said that it more accurately corroborates the new data of aperspectivity than does psychosomatic medicine, inasmuch as it goes beyond the latter's determinability and thus attains a broader basis with
