Response to guillaumeb (Reply #31)

33. Abraham Maslow called them "peak experiences"

And described them as "rare, exciting, oceanic, deeply moving, exhilarating, elevating experiences that generate an advanced form of perceiving reality, and are even mystic and magical in their effect."


And the evidence that they exist is that many people from many different cultures report having them. Just like many people report other, more common emotional experiences.
