hi Habby,

> Is it his intellect or the neurologic mechanism that is faulty? >

... "neurologic mechanism" ... gets my vote ...
... your question is whether all "spiritual" experiences are NOT neurologic disorders ...

... ... i would agree with Tabbi and add that there can be good neurologic 'failures' and bad (very bad) neurologic 'failures' ...
... ... some that can give deep insights could be "good" ...
... ... while some could put us risk by subverting our appropriately reality-grounded rationality ...

... one can have useful valid real-world application ...
... the other can undermine our judgement and preception of the physical world ...

... ... under your circumstances with your husband, intellectual discussions are not likely to make any progress ...
... ... i don't know what we are to do when faced with the intransigence of delusions like your husband's ... i'm so sorry

... .... i have to hope someone more knowlegdeable about mental health crises will post here about the approaches to your situation ...

... ... you are in our prayers

bless you,
~ jim
