If you experience something tangible, real, physical, outside of what you are used to experiencing, is it factual, or do you have to go running off to your safe scientific comfort zone ?

The problem is, when you enter the realm of the metaphysical, these "tangible, real, physical" experiences are subjective and open to interpretation. I've spoken to many people over the years who've had "tangible, real, physical" metaphysical experiences, and quite often those experiences are contradictory. All that can be said for certain is that people experience *something*. The human brain is very good at interposing layers of meaning on top of subjective experience, so it is unreasonable to expect others to accept that your *interpretation* of what you have experienced equates to *fact*. Expecting others to accept that you have experienced *something* is not unreasonable, however.
