Fractal geometry provides an unparalleled tool for understanding the evolution of natural complexity throughout the physical and biological realms. Fractal dynamics also help to reconcile perplexing dichotomies, such as subjective-objective, mind-brain, self-other, and linear-nonlinear processes. In their application to recursive processes of consciousness, both within ordinary and uncanny manifestations, they open a novel way of studying the interconnectedness of seemingly divided wholes. This extends to the most inclusive ways of encountering reality, described as transpersonal and even spiritual dimensions of experience. This volume pulls together experts in diverse fields, such as neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, physicists, physiologists, and mathematicians to demonstrate the value of fractal geometry as both a model and metaphor within psychology and related social and physical sciences. The result is a new perspective for understanding what has often been dismissed as too subjective, idiosyncratic, and ineffably beyond the scope of science, bringing the conversation back into a scientific framework.
