I don't do that, brother. I tried it and eventuall got to it, but something IS weird about the link.

This is a brief extract to start with - should be muchg more:

Maya or Māyā (Sanskrit māyā) literally means "illusion" and "magic".[1][2] However, the term has multiple meanings depending on the context. In earlier older language, it literally implies extraordinary power and wisdom,[3] in later Vedic texts and modern literature dedicated to Indian traditions, Māyā connotes a "magic show, an illusion where things appear to be present but are not what they seem".[2][4] In Indian philosophies, Māyā is also a spiritual concept connoting "that which exists, but is constantly changing and thus is spiritually unreal", and the "power or the principle that conceals the true character of spiritual reality".[5][6]

In Buddhism, Maya was the name of Gautama Buddha's mother. Maya is also the name of a manifestation of Lakshmi, the goddess of "wealth, prosperity and love", in Hinduism. For these reasons, it is a popular name for girls.[7]

Sorry about that

Huh? Your link seems to lead to a blind alley...
I have been Petros-punked?
No, the article is there; you simply have to look down the page to the "Did you mean?" notice.

Nope, didn't see any specific article, but after clicking through several links, I found:

I too tried Petros' quoted URL and experienced the same problem. However I went to my search engine (ixquick) and searched for the words "maya illusion" as separate lower case words, and the first hit was the wikipedia page. When I clicked on it I got the intended page as shown in this screen shot.

And you may notice that the URL in the upper left corner is exactly as Petros quoted it. (you probably have to click on the image to be able to read it.)

So in Petros's post it appears as: .............................................https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_(illusion)
But when I copy it from the screen and post it it comes out as: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_%28illusion%29

But when I copied it and pasted as a URL in this post there is a bunch of extra crap added. And I just cut and pasted the url from the wikipedia page but it appeared differently in this post. yet it works as I have posted it. Presumably the extra crap is to display the fund raiser header.

So I presume that Petros copied it when the fund raiser had not yet started and the whole confusion is not a Petros culpa but a Wikipedia culpa.
I never met anyone that I could not learn something from.
