What are your thoughts?
I agree it doesn't apply to arahants, as how can it apply to anything that does not experience samsaric existence?
Therefore inanimate things are totally
out of scope. On what basis did you understand they were in?
Be careful not to conflate dependent origination with other concepts such as "interbeing".
