But when one sees the origination of the world as it actually is with right discernment, 'non-existence' with reference to the world does not occur to one. When one sees the cessation of the world as it actually is with right discernment, 'existence' with reference to the world does not occur to one.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
from the "Kaccayanagotta Sutta: To Kaccayana Gotta (on Right View)"
As he was sitting there he said to the Blessed One: "Lord, 'Right view, right view,' it is said. To what extent is there right view?"
to which Our lord replies:
"By & large, Kaccayana, this world is in bondage to attachments, clingings (sustenances), & biases.
and then goes on to give us a way with dealing with this world in the rest of the sutta and the right view of it..

what i'm trying to find out is do you feel or think that this is all an illusion....not real....or do you think it is reality..
I am going somewhere with this....lol....but for now i gotta ask the question...
it's one thing to teach us how to deal with the reality we dwell in ...it's another to define it...yes no....
the sutta given doesn't really address the reality of it all..but how to deal with it with right view in order to evolve....
from the sutta;
"'Everything exists': That is one extreme. 'Everything doesn't exist': That is a second extreme. Avoiding these two extremes, the Tathagata teaches the Dhamma via the middle:
I feel this is teaching for seeing the nature of existence and then dealing with it...kinda like that cute lil sign some parks put up"leave nothing but your footprints, take nothing but the joy in the experience"...
