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
further to say 2=3   (Two and three not being equal is apriori )
Does this illustrate the idea of maya?

I would like other members to contribute to the above idea first.
