This is a highly encouraging comment from the list member.
Sri Vidyaji mentioned that perhaps another example given to understand maya is
Son of barren woman
The problem I see with this example is as I pointed out earlier - it is a contradiction 'apriori'.
To focus on this limitation in a more pointed manner we can take this example
