"In Explorers of the Infinite, Maria Coffey probes the mystical and paranormal experiences of adventure athletes. Could the state of intense "aliveness" that is the allure of extreme sports for so many actually be a route to spiritual transcendence, and a portal to new realms of consciousness? To find out, she reviews cutting-edge science, consults the history of philosophy and spirituality, and conducts in-depth interviews with notable adventure athletes." "This book asks why extreme athletes and mountaineers take the risks that allow them to push through into new realms of consciousness, what they encounter there, and what we can learn from them."--BOOK JACKET.
