These four are distortions of perception, thought & view:
• Sensing no change in the changing,
• Sensing pleasure in suffering,
• Assuming "self" where there's no self,
• Sensing the un-lovely as lovely.
Delusion is a mental illness that causes all sorts of suffering; mental health can be restored by correcting the flaws in how the mind operates.
