Yes. Scientists or innovators have such feelings too upon “figuring out something new”.
But there is a huge difference in the experience of the Ariyas. This is the only way to get to Ariya samadhi, which will get to a stage where it cannot be broken. This is what I explained in my previous post (with Upanisa Sutta).
