Science of Maya (Grant)

But the unreal, the irrational, the surreal, is of a different order of being. It does not exist in the sense that our bodies exist, for existence (by definition) implies a ‘being outside,’ an extension or exteriorization of consciousness in terms of space and time, of subject objectifying itself. True being has no existence, although it never ceases to be. Being is thus capable of existing (outside) but such existence is not essential to its being. This is why non-being has usually and mistakenly been assumed to be the only reality, in that it never changes, never becomes, never manifests, never exists outside its Self. Magic is the science of Maya, of creating the illusion of existence; of objectivication.
