Richard Bach said (in Illusions) "The world is your exercise book, the pages on which you do your sums. It is not reality, although you can express reality there if you wish. You are also free to write nonsense, or lies or to tear the pages".

Yes, very interesting take on it.
I view chapter 6 as a comment on possibility. I think that much more is possible in this life than we think. Things like ignorance, attachment, and fear hold us back from experiencing everything that is possible.
