Bizarre Meanderings of a Wandering Mind

Taken to its extreme:
The view that everything is an illusion
Negates itself.
Indeed, the view that everything is an illusion
is an illusion.
And so, everything is real.
But that is also an illusion.
What then are we left with?
Between reality and illusion--
It is like adding a positive number
To a negative of equal measure.
