Everything arises because of multiple conditions. We can say that the
conditions that contributed to the arising of the tree include (among
Imagine that there are three trees grouped together; an oak, a maple
and a pine. Though all three trees had the same conditions of sun,
rain and soil, it is the seed that makes each tree unique.
For eye consciousness to arise, the following conditions are required:
- Eye sensitivity (eye has to work, not blind)
- Visible object
I see the condition of "light" as a "common conditioning factor"
(like sun, rain and soil) and I see "visible object" as a "specific
conditioning factor" (like the seed).
