Science is only now discovering what the Mystics have always talked about. I think the two go hand in hand, it's just people divide it all up, rather than taking a wholistic approach, just like they do with religion!
Here's a good quote (might not be exact, as I don't have the book right in front of me):
"Stephen Hawking once said that mysticism is for those who can't do the math. I say the mystics don't need the math because we have the actual experience!" -Wayne Teasedale
