But for statement 2, it doesn't seems logical that an arahant is unable to read other's mind. Afterall, if someone who has clearly known beyond the shadow of a doubt that "birth has ended, the holy life fulfilled, the task done. There is nothing further for the sake of this world." and yet unable to read someone's mind, I'd naturally have to raise question on his/her assertion that s/he absolutely will not come back the next life.

I was thinking of posting a link to that discourse, but I couldn't remember its name.
