The mentalist knot cannot be untied without arriving at the conclusion that the processes of sensation are mental ones throughout. In The Hidden Teaching Beyond Yoga the author deliberately led the argument to a gap and then said we must stop there, as science has to stop there, unless we drop the original premise that we are dealing with material objects which give rise eventually to a mental perception, and switch over to a new premise that we are dealing all the time with mental objects only. In other words, the gap does not exist except in the imagination of scientists.
