Illusion is real, but it isn’t Real…
…It is a projected image of what “is” or at least of what we THINK “is“. That in itself creates a certain kind of reality. Many people, in many places, in many times, have contemplated this idea (i.e., Plato’s Allegory of the Cave). We obviously will continue to do so. It is part of the “human condition”.
I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience,
we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
