They distinguish between impermanent appearance and permanent being/awareness.
But, this does not imply duality.
Saltzman is opposed to this Vedantic aspect of the teaching. I had a few discussions with him concerning this matter. But he is not open to this understanding.
The Vedantic teaching of Advaita shares that although ‘That’ which appears is ‘dream like’, although mind and matter do not have an independent reality, they are nonetheless real as consciousness.
There is no separation between observer, observed and observation.
In fact all three are concepts.
In religious terms, one could say ‘All is one’.
All is God.
