Concerning the personality type dominated by this faculty Christopher Hills gives the following insghtful summary
Absolute type:Christopher Hills, Nuclear Evolution - Discovery of the Rainbow Body, p.614 (1977, University of the Trees Press)
Cannot compromise with uncertainty and hazard in the universe without self-surrender to Cosmic Intelligence and entering an immortal state of being. The annihilation of the "real external world" occurs when the individual ego unites with the self-consciousness behind all of the manifested creation and notions of bodily objects. This type has a desire to bring order out of chaos by the "willing" of eternal events in time - the function of prayer. The drive of self-annihilation creates a stubbornness and desire for absolute freedom to be a law unto oneself. Self mastery involves coping with this sacred desire to play God at the heart of all being. Unyielding, certain. overconfident, hard of heart, spiritually ruthless, self-defeating and on rare occasions completely broken in "will" and lost in the dark night of the soul. Must surrender to ultimate self or becomes destructive instead of creative. Is often grateful for small recognitions and does not expect rewards. Will serve only what he feels in a universal or cosmic will. Messianic pretensions must be coped with for psychic health as they are driving forces in the secret desires of many more men than is believed.
