Ramana Maharshi - The world and the mind

Does the world really exist by itself?
Was it ever seen without the aid of mind?
When asleep there is neither mind nor world.
When awake there is mind and world.
The world neither exists by itself
Nor is it conscious of its existence
And what is the nature of the world?
It is perpetual change
A continuous, interminable flux
A dependent, unself-conscious, 
ever changing world cannot be real.
