The five positive characteristics of mystical consciousness that Stace offers are as follows:
• It is an “undifferentiated unity.” Contrary to the ordinary consciousness, which consists of a multitude of objects (images, ideas), there is no this multiplicity in mystical consciousness;
• Mystical consciousness implies the dissolution of individuality. In the introvertive mystical consciousness, personal I disappears, dissolves, or fades away into the Infinite. The feeling of the dissolution of individuality is experienced by the mystics of quite different cultures and ages;
• Mystical consciousness carries with it extreme feelings of peace, blessedness, joy, bliss, and the like;
• Mystics are convinced that their experiences are an objective reality and not a subjective state of their own consciousness;
• Mystical experience has revolutionary effects on the life of the man, as it transforms him from the squalid and means to the noble and selfless.
