Ground Figure Confusion

But the ground of all these figures and flows is Consciousness, permeating and substantifying all that exists while not, itself, "existing" or "unexisting". In other words it is the ground on which any existence figures.

As sections or aspects of consciousness the most basic frustration of "people" is the effort to get "back" in touch with that ground, while being constantly presented with and identifying among the figures of the exist/unexist spectrum. While there is no existence not permeated by the ground, the recurring apparencies of distance, closeness, reach, withdraw, quality, number and space are all befuddling when accepted at face value.
