Verse 3.40.27

असत्यमेव वारित्वं बुद्ध्योदेतीव तत्तथा ।
वन्ध्यापुत्रोऽयमस्तीति यथा स्वप्ने भ्रमो नरः ॥ २७ ॥

asatyameva vāritvaṃ buddhyodetīva tattathā |
vandhyāputro'yamastīti yathā svapne bhramo naraḥ || 27 ||

It is an unreality as the appearance of water in the mirage, but manifests itself as a reality to the understanding by its intelligence. Without this (intellection), the intellectual man is a nil as the son of a barren woman, and a blank as the figure of a body seen in a dream.
