Dhamma is reality, and reality is experiential precisely because the only real thing is the experimental.
The wonder of being human resides in the capacity that has to get to see it, to get to experience it. Being surrounded by air does not mean you can see it, but not seeing it does not mean it does not exist.
To see the Dhamma one has to transcend the senses (rūpa) and the concepts (namā). And that is something that humans are able to do.
And the science by which Dhamma is accessed is an empirical science like physics, in fact, they are part of each other. This means that two individuals doing exactly the same thing at two different times and places get the same results.
And not only that.
In addition, it is based on a logical logic where there is no place for magical leaps, nor where opinions become reality like dreams in the minds of children.
The logic does not do more than to link conditions with causes and phenomena that cause more conditions that in turn cause more causes and phenomena. In fact, logic is no more than a mathematical structure of conditionality that is the basis of Samsara.
Where logic prevails, where conditionality reigns, belief does not take place. Logic is a part of mathematics and these are the conceptual framework of physics.
Both mathematics and physics is not believed. Hypotheses to be tested are exposed. And a proof is not that an eminence has said it, or it is written on an old parchment, or that it has been believed in that for a long time, or that there are many people who believe it. If it were so, that thought made reality, the earth would be flat in part of the planet and would have 6,000 years in certain parts of the world.
Imagine a hand calculator that, depending on the city where you are, one result or another. Or that the laws of physics are different depending on the student who thinks them, or that, if a guy says that gravity does not exist, he immediately starts to float. A world where reality is what the individual thinks.
We are talking about delirium, and if we refer to groups of people who share the same delirium, we call it religion.
Delirium is one of the grossest forms in which ignorance is clothed.
And, as civil laws allow religious “freedom”, the freedom to delude as each one suits and is productive, and is constituted as a “right of democracy” that is, the right to be ignorant and ignorant to the others, from the crudest of the ignorance, ask for “respect” for religious “beliefs” and for “freedom of opinion”.
This is at the root of the educational system, which fosters ignorance because it only seeks the submission of individuals.
We must also understand that the ignorant is where ignorance dwells. And the “respect” towards the ignorant what he seeks is to put ignorance in sacred.
And where this reaches the absolute height is in Buddhism, where the absolute fight is against the ignorance that binds Samsara. That there are networks of groups of ignorant people defending ignorance within Buddhism itself is similar to satanic groups within Christianity.
The least you can ask for is coherence, something the ignorant ignores.That coherence says that you either defend ignorance or attack it. To attack and say to defend is simple and pure imposture, something that in the panorama of Buddhism abounds everywhere and that has taken to the Dhamma of the Buddha to its absolute corruption. How it is visible and verifiable.
