MYSTICISM

in the context of oneself, mysticism is the view that there are sources of information which are distinct and do not follow the same paths as sensory experience and rational deduction, instead such information typically comes from revelations or inspiration which is unreplicable amongst a population and therefore not considered a science. Ideals and theories which come as a result of revelations cannot typically be shared with others and so each individual must come to their own conclusion and revelation.

MYSTICISM: "Mysticism is a belief and debated view that there are other sources of information which is reliable and not subject to the laws of science, these sources normally only communicate with one individual out of a group too."
