>R: I will have to take a look at the categories of pannati - that will be a good place for me to see how the very existence of objects is directly dismissed. Meanwhile: thinking, thinking, thinking, which is already in progress.........
S: Objects experienced can be either concepts or realities. Concepts, by definition, is "a notion or idea". It can be an idea about a reality, such as seeing or hearing or an idea about another idea. ...
RE: Thank you for this and for Jon's exposition.
Jon and CMA:
Concepts are twofold ...
Concept as that which is made known; these are
called meaning concepts or concepts-as-meanings
Concept as that which makes known: these are called
name concepts or concepts-as-names
Although concepts are not real and cannot be the
object of satipatthana, it is helpful to know more
about them, so that they are not taken for realities.< end Jon's post>
RE: I would just add that concepts can also be quite important in moving the understanding to pariyatti so that dhammas can be appreciated for what they are when experienced more directly.
