I think that lots of other religions have similar states of 
enlightenment or divine illumination. In sports, there is "In the 
Zone" which is commonly referred to as when people who are 
participating in sports perform at their highest personal levels due 
to a unity of mental and physical concentration. 

I think that satori is a lot more common than people think, and it is 
experienced by many people at many different activities that have 
nothing to do with zazen.
