"By & large, Kaccayana, this world is supported by (takes as its object) a polarity, that of existence & non-existence. 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.
"'Everything exists': That is one extreme. 'Everything doesn't exist': That is a second extreme.

Well then it's rather unexpected that a mind-built 3D illusion of a room can collapse in an earthquake and kill you. Or is the earthquake a mind-made kinetic illusion?

What is your understanding of conventional reality and ultimate reality ( and more specifically) their interface, experientially?
rowyourboat wrote:Hi kirk,
Ah, I see. From my understanding conventional reality and ultimate reality is the difference between experiencing the 'Tree' and experiencing the aggregates which make up our perception of the tree. Not, the labelling of the Tree and the bare experience of the Tree, which are both conventional. What do you think?
