In addition to the Sabba Sutta from the OP, perhaps the Mūlapariyāya Sutta
can shed some light on this topic. I've mulled over this sutta for years and seem to get something a little different from it each time, but I think the crux of the discourse is to practice towards an avoidance of the common arrangement of experience - constantly trying to construct a world in relation to a self.
The Sabba Sutta clearly states that all there is is the experience and all the experience is is this construction of a self perceiving a world: the eye and what is seen, the ear and what is heard, the nose and what is smelled, the tongue and what is tasted, the body and what is touched and the thinking and what is thought. This scheme is what there is to work with towards liberation. And within this scheme the common person will learn how to become supreme. I would move to argue that the Buddha is - borrowing from Ven. N's usage - prioritizing the experience in this sutta, and making it quite clear that the only thing that needs attending to are these "interactions" between the self and the world. The interactions, not the self or the world. The "how" of experience more than the "what". No denial of either, but a call to focus on how these ideas are coming about. Within these interactions stated in the Sabba Sutta we have the instructions in the Mūlapariyāya Sutta to move from indefinite, unconscious construction and orientation of the things that are perceived to a state of knowing with no construction.
Not sure if I brought anything to the discussion, but this occurred to me on my ride home from work and I figured I would throw it out there.
