Namaste Vikram Ji,
Reg  //  Adhyasa also is mutual, implying some of the characteristics of
the rope are superimposed on the imagined snake as well //,

Why is the snake considered to be ** imagined ** in AdhyAsa??. Snake is **
experienced as existing ** and not as ** imagined **. Even  after knowing
it to be a rope,  recollection is one of experiencing the existence of the
snake, not of ** imagining ** the snake. And in Advaita SiddhAnta the snake
has a certain level of Reality/Existence, namely prAtibhAsika Reality.
