Theism and mysticism. Mysticism in practice comes close to theism, but mystical thought and much of its practice have often involved a repudiation of the proper reality of finite things and sometimes tends to dismiss all of the finite manifold or multiplicity of things as some wholly unreal phantasm that has no place in the one undiversified Being, which alone is real.

Lewis, to name the books that had most influenced his thought/5. Theism - Theism - The problem of particular knowledge of God: If the central theme of traditional theism, that the finite world depends in some way on one transcendent and infinite Being, can be sustained, then a crucial problem presents itself at once: the question of how a being whose essence can never be known to human beings—a being who, as infinite, is bound to be.
