Do we feel that when we see, the things appear in the solid way?
However, when we analyze it, how can it be solid? The things themselves even cannot exist.
When we say something as an illusion, we say it because the way the thing appear is different with the way it exists.
When a magician display the horse with his spell, as the audience, we can see that the horse is illusion because the way the horse appear is not similar with how the horse exist.
Similarly, in our daily life, we see everything as real, as solid. This body is real. But when we analyze this body, we cannot find the body. Similar with car, house, etc. When we see, they look or appear so real, so solid. But when we analyze, like how we analyze this body, they do not exist.
We can then see that the way the things appear (as solid) is not same with how they actually appear (lack of solidness, empty of essence).
Doesnt this discrepancy fulfill the criteria called illusions?

I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!
