-Basic problem of sensus divinitatis: why is it that two persons can have the same cognitive power but not see the same object? If I’m having a religious experience, and you also have a sensus divinitatis, why is it that you don’t see the same object? In fact, given that the object is non-spacial, why doesn’t everyone have the same experience?  After all, if we did experience a common object, it would not be a mystical experience but a theophanic miracle.

One could just define the sensus divinitatis as something like a phone: a phone, after all, empowers you to receive a sort of information, but everybody does not have access to the same information (we don’t all take the same call). Conversions with God, one assumes, are directed to persons.
