    Illusion is part of the reality. Time is viewed as illusion by some and as real by others.

    “Time” is like a computer code. When you focus on the code one line at a time, you see time flowing. But when you look at the whole computer code in all its sequence at once, there is no such flow of time. There are only sequences.

    Thus “Time” is well represented through the matrix model of the universe as it is hinted here.

    The Western philosophy considers the universe to be fundamentally discrete. The Eastern philosophy takes the opposite view. It considers universe to be fundamentally continuous.

    For this universe to be logical it must be consistent. For this universe to be consistent it must be harmonious. And for this universe to be harmonious it must be continuous..

    The basis of this universe is continuity, harmony and consistency. Any discontinuity, disharmony and inconsistency is an anomaly to be resolved.

    I would therefore go with the Eastern view. If the universe is continuous then there are no separate and absolute physical and spiritual universes. Neither are there absolute Gods; nor are there absolute individuals, selfs and souls.

    The “deep state” is the flawed belief that we all are separate and absolute individuals.

    We are all connected at a fundamental level.
