Pointing out appearances, mind demands a response.
Mind itself complies, by identifying and distinguishing what is so:
- birth and death
- dream and reality
- conscious and unconscious
Playing out this reality, we apply tests for what is real, but since the tests emerge out of the same momentum of mind as what is tested, they only confirm what the mind has presented.
