By our name, Homo sapiens sapiens, the terrestrial species distinguished by our level and kind of consciousness, we have recognized that our inherent purpose is to cultivate our consciousness, to grow ever more conscious, and to elevate our consciousness transcendentally.

Homo transcendens
might be a better name for us, an upwardly mobile species destined to extend our awareness throughout the universe.

The highest aim of higher education should therefore be the nurturing of such transcendental consciousness in those capable of elevating their minds to the further reaches of cognition and of living their earthly lives in accord with that beatitude.
