Can thought be seen as a construction.
Reality (as is getting constructed in this thought-based communication) doesn't depend on the presence or absence of anything.
Reality isn't constructed........... so when thought occurs, and there's a constructed representation of reality........... reality still is reality.
Which might raise a question about the relationship of the constructed and unconstructed.
The problem with answering this in words is that words are constructs - so whatever is said will be one-sided, will be based in the constructed aspect of "what is."
But, given this limitation, it could be said that the constructed is never apart from or independent of the unconstructed, as there is no separative loci for the construction to get anchored upon.
Thus while there is no distinction......
.......it's just that the constructed isn't able to contain or reflect that nature of the unconstructed.
This is due to a limitation of thought as construct...... which is self-evident.
In other words, it's not due to having a thought about the constructed nature of thought
that one sees the limitation of thought.
It is due to immediate clarity ............which is not of thought, not thought-based thus not defined, nor constructed.
And in saying so......there has only been a construction.
