If the rat race is real, then meditation is an escape from it.

The past is just a memory, and the future might not come.
Another way to look at meditation is that it's a way to recharge your biological batteries so you can continue the day's rat race more successfully. Shorter time than taking a nap, which is optimal, because in the rat race, time is of the essence. You're right--it depends on one's version of which "reality" you're escaping from. For me, the rat race itself is an escape from reality, with disastrous results. Neptune tunes us in to what's really "real", if there even IS a true reality. Its influence is therefore anti-rat race. So, of course, those who value the delusions associated with the rat race have branded Neptune as a "delusional" influence.
