What you have done takes some courage. Let me be the first to virtually shake your hand! So, Mahwrin-Skel has been out with his silvery toungue and waved it around on behalf of Atheism, eh? Good.
But all that to the side. The personal experiences that you discuss are interesting. I guess all have them in some form. They can be quite intense, and religions would of course dearly like to monopolize them and claim them. I've had such experiences too, but did not ascribe them to anything outside myself, despite a powerful feeling of unity and peace, a sort of 'distributedness' that was very pleasant.
