Jules Wellesley on what sci-fi writers get.
[U]nlike Wittgenstein and Heidegger, who argue that the mystical lies outside the domain of science, Herbert and Pynchon suggest that the mystical is rather a part of science yet to be discovered.

Herbert, too, proposes several ideas about how the mystical not only might coexist with, but also complete, our understanding of the real.
