Ramana Maharshi says world seen on the previous day was not real

Q: After waking from sleep, why does the world of the previous day appear the same?

A: The world seen on the previous day was not real. It was the knowledge of an unreal knower; similarly, the world of the next day is also the knowledge of an unreal knower. Truly, there is no real world. What appears separate from us is called by us “the world”. It appears separate to us due to ego-consciousness (ahamkara).

When ahamkara goes there is nothing separate and then there is no world. Time also arises from pramata (the knower). Because pramata is not real, time is also not real. Prof. Einstein has also stated this in his theory of relativity.
