If "maya" relates to our temporary habitation (incarnation) in
this life. There is something in us and in others, that
perceives the "maya."
The Buddha, when asked, said "I am awake." what does that mean ?
It is evidently not of the nature of that "transitory." and
mayavic intelligence of our earth life. If so how are we to
understand that ? What bridges the gap of consciousness between
two days -- how is sleep to be understood -- I use this because
it seems to be an analogy.
Or, are we "going around" on that again ?

Dallas, I agree with you that the core teachings contain
"information and logic needed to understand the operations and
cooperation of Nature." If I didn't, I likely would not be here
on this list.
But those core teachings also say that nature is all maya, an
illusion, and that matter and spirit are two sides of the same
thing, an illusive substance that we humans experience as real
but that is not real at all.
OK, given that we have detailed operations of nature, and that
nature itself is illusion, it seems fitting to me that all such
core teachings about nature have to come under the heading of a
useful model of reality. As a model, we set up assumptions, work
through the model's logical deductive pathways and nodes, and
reach conclusions and/or predictions (useful models predict
events). I have found that the Theosophical Globes and Planes or
Planetary Chain Model allows us to do just that.
