The existence of pure and non-intentional mental states, especially pure consciousness, is one of the issues which can be located where philosophy of mind and philosophy of mysticism coincide. Most of states and stations proposed by mystics have adjuncts. However, there are also some mystical states and stations that do not necessarily have adjuncts. The proponents of this view have simply argued for the existence of these kinds of states, merely by examining pure consciousness as a non-intentional mental state reported by the mystics. It appears that there are further non-intentional mental states. One of these non-intentional states is the "mystical" state of pure tranquility. The question can be raised whether a state known as pure tranquility can be assumed and comprehended. If not then the alternative is that it has an adjunct and it is necessarily directed to an object. It can be said that the mystic, in his progress path to God, falls in a state of pure tranquility without being linked to an object as an adjunct of the tranquility state. His spirit is in a state of certainty without having to be certain of something. From a mystical point of view, two arguments can be put forward for the realization of pure tranquility: the entailment of knowledge and tranquility, and the interconnection of tranquility and the primordial covenant in Islamic mysticism.
