Meditation, spiritualism, mysticism, are all fine if they:


1. Don't invoke the supernatural.

2. Don't make claims that are at odds with scientific knowledge.

3. Don't make unfalsifiable claims.


Once they do any one of the above, they are just not credible.


Ouspensky is obviously making claims about human well-being that have no basis in fact. He fails at all three.

What's yr opinion of this "mystical intellectual,"

you might not be aware of these kind of writers.  I don't know if all art music poetry etc...  if they have a "mystical bent," can be relagated to the bunk category.

There is art and than there's kitsch, i don't think this writer is necessarily kitsch. 
Buckminister Fuller could also be called a "mystical intellectual," but he did invent some practical scientific objects and was a friend of A. Einstein.
