Nothing real can be seen in an unreal world

You cannot see the power station in your living room. Yet it is due to that, your room is illuminated by night, so that you can experience the room.

If the world is an illusion, we – as somebody there – cannot know if there is anything else than the world. Such knowledge would also be an illusion and so would any hope. The most realistic thing – although still illusionary – is to not know and hope.

However, just like the virtual world of a video game is constructed with the help of elements from the physical world, although there are no physical elements in a virtual world, it is most likely that the illusion of the world is constructed with the help of that which is real, although it cannot be experienced in an illusion. What can be experienced though are symbols of the that which makes it possible to fabricate the illusion the world.
