' A mere mentation '...
Japanese Zen Master Dogen:
"Unwise people think that in the world of essence there should be no bloom of flowers and no fall of leaves."
The Master here shows that in the mind of the enlightened man the external world appears as for the ordinary man and remains a mere mentation for the mentalist.
