The world

How can the mind which has itself created the world accept it as unreal?

That is the significance of the comparison made between the world of the waking state and the dream world.

Both are creations of the mind and, so long as the mind is engrossed in either, it finds itself unable to deny their reality.

It cannot deny the reality of the dream world while it is dreaming and it cannot deny the reality of the waking world while it is awake.

If, on the contrary, the mind is seen for what it is, a notion, inferred by the memory of experiences, (an apperception obviously not possible by the mind) and there is an abidance there, ..........the apperception that the world of which you are now aware is just as unreal as the world in which you lived your dream.

An expressing through "Fred Allen Wolf" in, Parallel Universes,........

Mind, I believe, exists as fleeting energy in parallel universes. The universe we perceive consists of the overlap of these fleeting flashes of energy. The patterns create mind as surely as they create matter. Both the existence of matter and the perception of it are the same thing.

An expressing through "Humberto Maturana" prattles in , The Tree of Knowledge ........

For the operation of the nervous system, there is no inside or outside, but only maintenance of correlations that continuously change (like the indicator instruments in a submarine).
Self-consciousness, awareness, mind - these are phenomena that take place in language..
Mind' is not an entity but can be ascribed to a system exhibiting regular behavior.

An expressing through " Vasco Ronchi" in , Optics, The Science of Vision

The apparent world, the one which is perceived, with its figures, its brightness, its colors, is a psychical product, a creation of the observer. The figures seen on the vault of heaven are neither the celestial bodies, nor the true clouds or the falling stars, but are only effigies which the observer's psyche has created and localized how and where it can.


An expressing captured in The Secret Oral Teachings in Tibetan Buddhism

The greatest saint, even if he has sacrificed a thousand times all that he held most dear, even his life itself, for love of others, for that of a God or for a noble ideal, remains a prisoner of samsara if he has not understood that all that is a childish game, empty of reality, a useless phantasmagoria of shadows which his own mind projects on the infinite screen of the Void.
