To be a Transcendental there are many beliefs. Individualism, the thought that every human being is their themself. Nobody else controls you in what you do. Life, liberty, and rights are given to you. We go by individual beliefs rather than a common or collective beliefs. You also may gain knowledge also known as wisdom. Not only do you learn facts or have wisdom but you get self knowledge. You learn more about yourself and who you are as a human. What you are capable of doing is unstoppable and the is was Transcendentalism is about.
