".. Mysticism is the acceptance of allegations without evidence or proof, either apart from or against the evidence of one’s sense, and one’s reason.  Mysticism is the claim to some non-sensory, non-rational, non-definable, non-identifiable means of knowledge, such as “instinct”, “intuition,” “revelation,” or any form of “just knowing.”"
