We never believe, however, that this world is arising and ceasing moment to moment, but assume that time runs through the past and the future. We always consider getting off work and going home to be two different things. We never think that the only time we have is one ten thousandth of a second, and neither do we believe that this world is only one ten thousandth of a second. The reason we are unable to observe this with our naked eyes is because objects arise and cease extremely quickly.
We also cannot gather the past, present and future into the same point in time and space. If the past, present and future happened in that way, our concept of time would be mistaken. Then yesterday, today and tomorrow could also be gathered into the same point in time and space. If such were to happen, our concept of time again would be in error. Therefore，we live in a dream-like world.
