Hi there!

I've bumped into this quotation (Shepard who quotes Harold Searle)

"It seems to me that the highest order of maturity is essential to the achievement of a reality relatedness with that which is most unlikely oneself."



The phrase sounds clear enough, but I was wondering if "reality relatedness" simply means "real connection" or if it may have some different nuances. It seems to be mosltly used in psychological subjects but I am not able to spot any possible specific meaning or characterization of the expression. 

Anyone here may have a better clue? 
Thank you in advance,
Amarillide

Amarillide -

It's not a known phrase per se, but it's understandable in the jargon which both speak. And yes, most of us would just say "real connection" or something equally clear.Sick
