Anyone who has to ask that question clearly isn't ready to transcend the World themselves yet...

>> Existence is illusion;

"The dragon religion preaches and proves that existence is a web of illusion. The illusion is maintained by immersion into the five elements, each of which is associated with one of the five perceptions. Through practice of Right Action the dragonewts can cleanse themselves of the webs of illusion which restrict their spiritual growth and eventually liberate their psyches to join the eternal Dance of Pure Being which is the thought of Ouroboros."

"A seeming irony of their life is that the dragonewt regresses, becomes weaker and less suited for advancement every time they use their powers. Each use of their immense magics gets the dragonewt more and more enmeshed in the problems of existence by creating debts which must be paid before passing on to perfect draconic being" - - op cit.
