Cool theory. There is however an explanation why there is no mystical otherworld. The transcendent/absolute/ultimate exists beyond all otherworlds. All religions have some relation to it, through their otherworld. Mystics teach that there is a personal path to the ultimate and that it does not go through the otherworlds, these are rather distractions that you should bypass.
