Moi aussi. Mysticism definitely, (comparative) religion yes-- from the POV
of Jos. Campbell, e.g..; most philosophy, unfortunately, causes severe MEGO.

Thank you! An interesting site.  It seems I (personally) have gone from Xnty
to Deism.  Kash religion, if it ever gets formulated, would seem to be more
like Shinto with a dash of Deism (the idea of a creator-god/force that takes
no further interest in, and does not intervene in,  affairs of the world).
