Vedanta teaches us to see Brahman everywhere even in the so-called illusion. Dvivedi pub- lished in They appear as real on account of Avidya.

That Turiya however is always all seeing. Gaudapada has dealt with all the problems of philosophy following the scientific method of the modern times.

The Mandukya Upanishad (Gaudapa Karika and Shankara Bhashya)

It is the illusion due to ignorance that makes one see the snake that disappears but no real snake.

As such an experience of boredom would regardless of circumstance also be to enjoy the privilege of experiencing.
