This chapter examines unbounded wholeness and considers its relation to reasoning, which cannot access it fully, and to open awareness, which can. From this vantage point, this chapter studies how Authenticity's presentation differs from certain (arguably more conservative) elements of pramāna epistemology and from the use of reasoning in certain interpretations of Madhyamaka. More specifically, it considers how an inferential reasoning consciousness is not authentic when it comes to open awareness and unbounded wholeness. These differences derive in significant measure from the fact already noted that unlike either of these systems Dzogchen is not governed by the two truths.

Keywords:   Authenticity, reasoning, unbounded wholeness, open awareness, Madhyanaka
