At what point does a philosophy become a mysticism? Either a theology?

Alternately, at what point does a philosopher become a mystic? Either a . . . what, a priest? A prophet?

What a wonderful question! What a beautifully brief & meditative...question.... It must depend on how you define philosophy, & at what point the philosophical spirit of delineation (or discursive thought, though it's not all discursive) begins to transmogrify into poetry. But perhaps words are insincere ways of dealing with these Truths (if you believe in Truths/truths/Truth/truth). It's a beautiful meditation, & one that could generate much wonderful, rich writing.
 
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.

Feel free to take it for a walk etc, if you like.
