Is it naive to find mysticism and mystery in the universe?

For me...

Mysticism, yes
Mystery, no

Some argue that along with mysticism comes models of thought that can provoke the kind of thinking that might one day allow us to crack the great mysteries of life. I say bollocks. It's cool to be fascinated by what we don't know or struggle to comprehend. I wouldn't be here if I didn't enjoy talking and thinking about the big questions. Who knows, if we keep asking ourselves these things for long enough then one day we might find answers. We might not. Regardless, we can be proactive about our philosophical inquisition without slamming a fist down on the table and shouting "FUCKING MAGIC!" lol

What is mysticism anyway? People can't even define it.

I know right. Maybe you have to like meditate to find out or something.

Well the only answer I ever got was that mysticism is wisdom which you will understand once you become a mystic.
Become crazy and craziness will make sense.

I always thought it was the belief that the answers to life's mysteries are attainable by deep thought, meditation and becoming one with some form of higher power. Either way it sounds like Astral crystal bollocks to me.

Also, I would definitely go to see Astral Crystal Bollocks if they were a band.

Mystery exists beyond the the edge of our understanding, wherever those boundaries may lie from person to person. However one must be careful to not attempt to expand those boundaries beyond what is actually known. Do not mistake imagination for facts, belief for knowledge, or faith for evidence. Being open to possibilities beyond our current understanding is a far cry from positing they do in fact exist; be they aliens civilizations, psionics and telepathy, or gods.
