The keyword/phrase "advanced state of mental functioning" relates to, and is part of, the classification(s) listed below, as used in the text or auxiliary documents of the QUFD website and in Father Jerome's scientific writings.
philosophy of mind
Quantum Unitary Field Dynamics
theology of reality
Veil of Separation
Veil of Unknowing
The GENERAL CONTEXT of such use is:
The term refers to a human being's achievement, or actualization, of a maturity of their Mind, in which their awareness of themselves transcends the limitations of the self and is able to access the consciousness of the Self/Soul and beyond. This is an important part of maturity of the Mind and Human Evolution. It actually is an advanced state of being, because the individual local Mind has now accessed the Self/Soul portion of that local Mind and is thusly then able to futher access any and all dimensions of consciousness beyond the local Mind and is, indeed, able to access Infinite Consciousness (God).
