1821 Perception [can occur without extra-mental object], Just a5 it happens in a dream etc. The phrase 'without extra-mental object' [uind-api-nrthena] is understood from the above discussion. A Treattse in Twenty Stanzas At the time when that perception occurs, The [corresponding external] object is found ; How can then one speak of its perception ? 271 not At the time when in a dream one has the awareness that 'this is being perceived by me', that object is not really seen by one; because, on the one hand, that awareness is determined solely by the thought-consciousness,and on the other hand, at that time the eye-consciousness is obstructed; therefore how can that awareness be recognized as sense-perception at all ?

Of an object 1. But it is not so [ i e. the common man does not l e a l i ~ e the ahenceof an object]. Thereforc, all perceptions are not without objects, as a dream-perception is. : argument does not make any point Because, Those who are not awake Do not realize that the object5 they seein a dream Do not exist Similarly. the common man fast a~leepby the sleep of the habit of vainly discriminating between subject and object, as long as he is not awoken, sees, as if in a dream, unreal objects, and does not properly realize their absence.

[I891 18. The representations of consciousness Are determined by mutual influence Of one individual on another.
