There is no external world

There is no external world. It is a categorical mistake. There is neither an “outside” for objects nor an “inside” for a self. It is a perceptual, conceptual illusion created by the process of an object.

    I like the first part, but I think that the term ‘illusion’ is (lol) a bit deceptive or misleading. How does an illusion manifest within an illusion (the illusion of outside and inside)? If process is neither outside nor inside, then how do we know what process might be? Is process itself and illusion too, since it can appear both inside and outside?

      Illusion, misleading, yes.

      To perceive an external world is to conceptualise it. Conceptualisation is a process of an object, not an object in itself.
