The world and the senses

If we want to go beyond the mind and body, we have to understand and fully accept that all the information the senses provide is not real. Like the mirage that produces an illusory oasis in the desert, the sense create the impression that there a real world in front of us that is being perceived by the mind. The apparent reality of the world is an illusion. It is merely a misperception. We see the superimposition, the unreal names and forms we have created and we forget about the substratum, the reality that underlies them. -- A.S
