Just out of curiosity, Brahman being infinite, that cannot have any parts, and is free from sajaati, vijaati swagata bhedaas. There cannot be anything other than Brahman. Hence if there is anything other than Brahman that can only be mithyaa. avidya and tat virodha jnaanam both cannot but be mithyaa - i.e. sat asat vilakshaNam. I cannot see any other possibility?

And it follows that all that is brought about by this mithyA
ajnAna is also mithyA. This is graphically brought out by the
Kathopanishat mantra and bhashya: The Sun (in the example) and the Self
are not touched by the effects of commingling (in the case of Sun) and
avidyA (in the case of the Self).
