denna artikel har psykologen och religionspsykologen dr. Ken R. Vincent samlat en del mystika upplevelser med universalistiska (läran om allas slutliga frälsning, apokatastasis) drag. Här kommer ett par av dem:
 
Följande upplevelse är från Sir Alister Hardys The Spiritual Nature of Man. Study of contem-porary religious experience (1979), och beskriver prästen, Dr. Leslie Weatherheads upplevelse som ung:
 
"This is the only way I know in which to describe the moment, for there was nothing to see at all. I felt caught up into some tremendous sense of being within a loving, triumphant and shining purpose. I never felt more humble. I never felt more exalted. A most curious, but overwhelming sense possessed me and filled me with ecstasy. I felt that all was well for mankind-how poor the words seem!  The word ‘well’ is so poverty stricken. All men were shining and glorious beings who in the end would enter incredible joy. Beauty, music, joy, love immeasurable and a glory unspeakable they would inherit. Of this they were heirs."
 
 
I Prof. David Hays bok Exploring Inner Space. Scientists and religious experience (1987), minns en kvinnlig skribent en mystik upplevelse från barndomen:
 
"My father used to take all the family for a walk on Sunday evenings. On one such walk, we wandered across a narrow path through a field of high, ripe corn. I lagged behind, and found myself alone. Suddenly, heaven blazed upon me. I was enveloped in golden light, I was conscious of a presence, so kind, so loving, so bright, so consoling, so commanding, existing apart from me but so close. I heard no sound. But words fell into my mind quite clearly — ‘Everything is all right. Everybody will be all right.’ "
 
 
Sådana ljuvliga upplevelser rimmar väl med min mikrolivsfilosofi, att atomerna är "Gud". Ty atomerna är i allt och ser allt och vakar över oss, och ser till att ingen måste lida för mycket. De är oss närmare än våra egna tankar, och leder oss vist till den eviga glädjen. Det är de som beslutar ytterst över vårt liv och vår död, och kan ta oss hem till himlen om vi inte orkar mer. Och inte minst, de hör våra böner och suckar.
 
Världens mest kända bönemänniska, George Müller från Bristol (1805-1895), fick 50 000 bönesvar under sin livstid, och han bokförde sina böner och bönesvar, så att han kunde räkna dem. Alla dessa kan inte ha varit tillfälligheter, som en ateist-naturalist skulle påstå.
