The consciousness of the MER I refer to (see Mystics and Consciousness Part I) seems unique to mystics. It is that consciousness of MER that defines the mystic, in my experience.
I suspect there is an even greater consciousness even today’s mystics haven’t yet experienced. Even that greater consciousness might not be the limit of such evolutionary progress. There are likely many more, greater and greater levels of cosmic consciousness that both humans and mystics in their present form will never experience.
Present human consciousness seems limited to a primary human level of evolution. But mystical experience of consciousness are different. They do not have usual human biological limitations at all.
Mystics are not so much ‘wired’ differently but are used differently to experience vastly more about an endless, benign Reality. …
Mystic brains seem to receive their consciousness rather than create it, as some scientists propose. (This might explain why those who accept reincarnation claim mystics wont have to face the human experience again after bodily death).
Hindus and Buddhists believe in reincarnation. Moksha, release from the cycle of birth and rebirth in Sanskrit, is total spiritual liberation. Nirvana, complete cessation of desires and attachment, is the final exit from this world of becoming.
Let’s hope we don’t have to live another life. The next 50-100 years on Earth are likely to be far worse than the last.
