Abstract

The factor-analytically derived concept transliminality has been tentatively defined as "susceptibility to, and awareness of, large volumes of imagery, ideation and affect-these phenomena being generated by subliminal, supraliminal and/or external input. " In the course of 5 papers it has been concluded that, in addition to the original variables making up transliminality (viz., belief in and alleged experience of the paranormal, creative personality, mystical experience, magical ideation, and history of manic-like experience), there are other variables that correlate significantly with transliminality and all its 5 variables. These include general religiosity, frequency of dream interpretation, attitude toward dream interpretation, schizotypal personality, Fantasy proneness, absorption, and hyperaesthesia. These variables have hitherto not been presented en bloc to a single sample. The present paper did this, using a sample of 301 persons, most of whom were psychology students, and included also Bernstein and Putnam's Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), Riley's Questionnaire of Experiences of Dissociation(QED!, and the Launay-Slade Hallucination Scale. Principal component factor analysis using the Kaiser criterion was used to show that absorption, fantasy proneness, hyperaesthesia, and attitude toward dream interpretation could be considered part of a single factor transliminality. Using a methodical procedure, a 29-item short-form measure of transliminality was derived that correlated with a large number of variables. Furthermore, as an example, it was demonstrated that the Transliminality Scale is strongly and positively associated with the sheep-goat variable. Other studies using the scaleare in progress or have been completed.
