Yes, it appears so.
Well, what i am thinking is,
is physical phenomena an illusion
or is it the reality
of physical phenomena that is the illusion?
I have mentioned somebody once saying, regarding the question of the existence of other realms,
that other realms were no more real than this one
And what that means is, how much one will experience existence in another realm
depends a lot on how much one clings to the apparent reality of this one.
It can be said that all phenomena can be divided infinitely (in many ways)
and thus has no inherent existence.
But why is divisibility the criteria for establishing the "reality" of something?
So, maybe "reality" has nothing to do with physical particles, molecules, or whatever
To say "It's not real because I can cut it in half"
...I mean, that's a bit silly. Isn't it?
