The conditioned mind can't cope with reality. In order to let go of illusion the mind has to be tricked. Illusions are lies, but they have a hold on people who think its real.
Any communication is no more than a report on a condition within that person, and that condition is insanity. If you can't be here in this moment without your baggage you are insane.
You don't get to decide what you are present to. Presence is beyond the mind.
