Or are you both applying different definitions to this term in the hope I'll die of confusion and cease to be 'real'-ly on this site?
Hehe. No murderous plot here, as far as I know.
ALG is analyzing the constituent components of the 'dream' as though they are objectively true, concluding that matter is mostly empty space wavicles blinking in and out of existence. I'm not real sure what the significance of that is except maybe he's not differentiating between objects.
I'm saying it's all an appearance appearing to YOU, and YOU aren't appearing at all. Your dilemma seemed to be that some of the appearances are 'real' (the people) and therefore share the experience of their actuality, while other appearances are 'manifested' by you (Maserati) and this manifested thing is also shared somehow, making it a manifestation for others as well.
All of it is equally appearance and nothing is more actual than anything else.
