Verse 3.15.4

जालान्तर्गतसूर्याभा जालाकाररजांस्यपि ।
जगद्भानं प्रति स्थूलान्यणुं प्रति यथाचलाः ॥ ४ ॥

jālāntargatasūryābhā jālākārarajāṃsyapi |
jagadbhānaṃ prati sthūlānyaṇuṃ prati yathācalāḥ || 4 ||

As sun-beams seen under the water, and as water appearing in the sands of the desert (mirage); so it is the fancy, that paints the world as true to us; and its bulk is like that of an atom, appearing as a hill.
