Phenna sutta analogies

Postby fivebells » Fri Mar 28, 2014 1:09 am

The Phenna sutta is quite interesting. Is there any commentary on how its analogies relate to the qualities of the aggregates they're related to? E.g., how is consciousness more like a magic trick than a blob of foam?

There is a thread with a discussion of this sutta including commentary from a number of sources here

Thanks, culaavuso. There was a comment in there which answered my question.
