OK, so what? My dog experiences reality directly without illusions 
(presumably).

What you define as zen sounds like Zombie Zen, not even Happy People Zen. 
You are talking about just lurching through life gaping at everything 
"experiencing it directly."

A flower is a flower, etc., so what? Where is the turning of the Dharma 
Wheel in THAT? What is THAT if it is just about standing there looking at IT 
and experiencing IT without any Maya? What is the point of THAT?
