What is an illusion

Wiki: Freud defines religion as an illusion, consisting of "certain dogmas, assertions about facts and conditions of external and internal reality which tells one something that one has not oneself discovered, and which claim that one should give them credence." 

We can simplify.  In our every day local exchanges we always move toward balance. Thus, 'accidentally', we meet Ito's condition and the world looks mapped.  Having no general clue how that happened we assume a divinity, or a dead English Dandy gets elevated to a divinity.
