"...(T)he opposite of rational is not always irrational, but it can also be transrational or bigger than the rational mind can process; things like love, death, suffering, God, and infinity are transrational experiences.  Both myth and mature religion understand this.  The transrational has the capacity to keep us inside an open system and a larger horizon so that the soul, the heart, and the mind do not close down inside of small and constricted space.  The merely rational mind is invariably dualistic...." -- Richard Rohr.
