The world would probably see nothing at all. I once sat a long conference table at the meeting of a Buddhist charity and an elderly monk put a bronze Buddha image on the table. The bronze statue then turned to briefly glance at one of the people present. I began to sweat profusely and shake from head to toe with terror. I looked up and saw that two others present were in a similar state of shock but the other dozen people saw absolutely nothing, even though it was right under their noses.
So what is out there beyond our perception? My guess is everything; dragons, ogres, wizards, magic swords and everything that ever been written, and then some more! What we have instead is this dire consensus reality supported by the feverish desires of billions who project this 'reality', and wow is it strong. This is Mara's realm. Who can step out of line and say excuse me legions of Mara, and the combined magic power of the projected false desires of every living being on this world since the dawn of time, but I would like to prove you all wrong. I will now demonstrate that the very fabric on which your world is based is as empty as the sky, a dream, or a tall story that you once heard, and oh, by the way sorry if you die of shock or become mentally deranged. There was one person I can think of who had the power, compassion and skill to step out of line in this way and challenge the entire universe, slashing open this tangled web of misery and lies to reveal the Truth...Prince Gautama, Sage of the Sakyas.
