I'll give it a last stab :

If orthodox mysticism can be conceived as a vertical transcendance, with a focus on the mystic's understanding of his individual cosmic nature, illumination is a horizontal transcendance, where the mystic's place in the world and its societies and otherworlds is radically redefined by high level transcultural insights.

Confusion and misunderstanding abound whenever it's spring cleaning time for these topics.
