What is illusion?…

“What is illusion? By what criterion do we judge something to be an illusion? Does there exist for the psyche anything which we may call ‘illusion’? What we are pleased to call such may be for the psyche a most important factor of life–something as indispensable as oxygen for the organism–a psychic actuality of prime importance. Presumably the psyche does not trouble itself about our categories of reality, and it would therefore be the better part of wisdom for us to say: everything that acts is actual.” — C. G. Jung
