World Has No Absolute Existence

What does the statement of the existence of the world mean, then? 
"This world has no existence." 
What is meant by that? 

It means that it has no absolute existence. It exists only in relation to my mind, to your mind, and to the mind of everyone else. … … 

It has, therefore, no real existence; it has no unchangeable, immovable, infinite existence. 
Nor can it be called non - existence, seeing that it exists, and we have to work in and through it. It is a mixture of existence and non-existence.
