Asserting and Not Asserting

When one asserts that outer objects truly exist,
Then there are clean and dirty.
When one asserts validly established conventional reality,
Both clean and unclean exist.

When one does not recognize one is dreaming,
One asserts that conventional reality is validly established.
When one recognizes one is dreaming,
Assertions that conventional reality is validly established dissolve.

Asserting validly established conventional reality,
And not asserting it are like that.
