Buddhist models of the mind and the common core thesis on mysticism
Mystics have experiences that for most people do not occur often in their daily life. This holds in many cases also for the mystics themselves. There is certainly an important component of euphoria in the experience. But it seems impossible to express the experience in ordinary language. Nevertheless, more than one third of the human population is reported to have had a mystical experience, see (Hood et al. 2003).
