Distinguishing the symbolic layer of reality from ‘actual’ reality in a dialectical way is silly, since everything symbolizes something, and the things called “actually” real as opposed to symbols representing them are yet further symbols of yet further realities that are yet further symbols. In this way, all symbols and realities are actualized.
