' Illusion is an illusion '...

The mind passes through a stage when, seeking after truth, it finds out that the world is other than it seems to be, and that its material substance is not matter at all but energy: its form is illusory.

But this is not the end.

For the seeker does not stop there;

if he proceeds farther, he may find that illusion is itself an illusion.

It is next found to be derived from reality and to be a form assumed by reality.

This is the sage's enlightenment, this is his experience.
