a consequence of reaching such levels through a great amount of training and copious amounts of reflection.

It helps. It mirrors well some of the mystical writings from the Eastern Orthodox Desert Monks, which dove into this level, which the same amount of very precise distinctions between things that are often indiscriminately blended together.

Or the Desert Monks mirror it. I doubt it’s a cause/effect situation but more a consequence of reaching such levels through a great amount of training and copious amounts of reflection.

I don’t have any names to give you at present but in readings of the Philokalia years back, I recall something that is similar, although perhaps it is not.

I disagree about the necessity to name. A concept can be shared without it having a name. “Is it relateable?” is enough for mutual understanding, although perhaps within Philosophy, if the words are the lowest elemental form, then perhaps it is impossible to philosophize without terminology, I don’t know though.
