One must be careful not to over-intellectualise these things.
I think I know where you are coming from when you say this, and no doubt some are tangled in words more than their meanings. But I must say that for some a certain amount of linguistic exuberance/indulgence is as natural as whistling a tune. For some, the word "transrational" is suspicious. I feel that the hyper-rational is as good a path, as long as a person ends up joyful rather than tormented. I offer this with respect as a can of Coke to set beside your can of Pepsi.
I love that Beatle's song/album. Now I must mention Harvest by Neil Young.

The only thing that we can fully understand about ourselves is that we fool ourselves.
Ah, but are you fooling yourself when you say this?

This is deep. I agree. We find ourselves in others and others in ourselves. All this man-is-an-island is just snakes on a plane. (Felt right to put it that way instead of sh*t on a stick.)
