I think we need more of this more well-rounded thinking on the
web. Please write good essays everyone! We need more material to keep
the discourse growing.

I do not know much about integral psychology in Ken Wilber's form, but
I wonder how it does relate to cognitive neuroscience? I'm interested
in humanistic psychology, but I have always felt it was lacking in its
epistemology and did not take the physical, biological nature of the
brain into account. A transhumanistic psychology would do that, and
try to use our biological understanding to achieve humanistic goals.
