We never believe, however, that this world is arising and ceasing momentarily but assume time runs through the past and future. We always consider that getting off work and going home are 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 not able to observe this with our naked eyes is because the arising and ceasing of objects is extremely fast.
We also cannot gather the past, present and future into the same time and the same place. If the past, present and future of that happened, our concept of time would be mistaken. Then, yesterday, today and tomorrow can also be gathered into the same time and same place. If such happens, our concept of time again would be mistaken. Therefore，we live in a dream-like world.
