Shankaracharya always gives the example of a rope which looks like a snake in the dark. But this example is inaccurate because by coming close you can know that it is a rope. And once you know that it is a rope, no matter how far you are from it, it looks nothing like a snake. But the illusion of life is not like that. Friend house tribbiani we don’t share food mug. The illusion of life is like a stick immersed in water. In water it will appear bent, but when you pull it out of the water, it is straight again. If you immerse it again, it will look bent again. Then if you dip your hand in water you will find that the stick is still straight, but it still looks bent.
