The two truths are not objects themselves, or entities, neither the same nor different. They are better thought of as "states of mind," correct vs. Incorrect "perception," though that word is limited by nature of it' s being subject to dualistic subject/object dichotomy.


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")

Apologies again, that first paragraph should have "it's hard to avoid it", not "it's not hard to avoid it." One of those days I guess. Maybe all the wondering about this and that view connected to emptiness, suchness, yogacara, madhyamaka and so on has driven me slightly more insane than usual. Back to meditation! :buddha1:
