The mystics of spirit declare that they possess an extra sense you lack: this
special sixth sense consists of contradicting the whole of the knowledge of
your five. The mystics of muscle do not bother to assert any claim to
extrasensory perception: they merely declare that your senses are not valid,
and that their wisdom consists of perceiving your blindness by some manner of
unspecified means. Both kinds demand that you invalidate your own consciousness
and surrender yourself into their power. They offer you, as proof of their
superior knowledge, the fact that they assert the opposite of everything you
know, and as proof of their superior ability to deal with existence, the fact
that they lead you to misery, self-sacrifice, starvation, destruction.
They claim that they perceive a mode of being superior to your existence on
this earth. The mystics of spirit call it “another dimension,” which consists
of denying dimensions. The mystics of muscle call it “the future,” which
consists of denying the present.
