The walking life is merely a dream of the Absolute.
It`s a metaphor, not a physiological thesis, because the Absolute is not an organism.
There are two claims “hidden” in that sentence:
- The walking life seems to be more real than usual dreamlands.
- In fact, the walking life is only relatively real, just like other dreamlands – as far as the relation between the world and the Absolute is concerned.
Dreamer is always present to itself but never present in any of its dreamlands, because it`s not an object among other objects; it`s the silent watcher of all objects.
