Thanks pulga!

Perhaps Laurence Mills may have had access to the Ven's draft MN? Did any of his notes ever make their way into the Mahamakuta edition of his "A Treasury of the Buddha's Discourses from the Majjhima-nikaya"? I lost both volumes when I was moving home.

But I'm puzzled by the Ven's point. If there's a search for this ontology, one might look to √bhū, surely not √bhu as suggested by the Ven. Or was this just a typeset error in footnote 46/1?

the Buddha
said those ascetics and brahmins who regard anything as self
all regard five aggregates of clinging or certain amongs them
regard form as self
self possessing form
form as in self
self as in form
same goes for other 4 aggregates.
