carl sagan distinguished clearly between mysticism and spirituality. while mysticism is concerned with matters of magic, the occult, the supersensual and ‘essentially unknowable,’ spirit is something quite different, he maintained. "it comes from the latin word 'to breathe'. what we breathe is air, which is certainly matter, however thin. despite usage to the contrary, there is no necessary implication in the word 'spirituality' that we are talking about anything other than matter (including the realm of matter of which the brain is made) or anything outside the realm of science...science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality...the notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a profound disservice to both.'
