Okay, but apparently there's a "mystical" in the sense of that which cannot be described any which way and can only be experienced, re samadhi, eg.

Yes, I tend to agree, and I'm guessing that that "understanding" has taken a few turns along the way over the years, per whatever interpretive tendencies there might be out there.
