If you understand cessation of attainment this will further clarifies for you.
So consciousness disappears. When consciousness
disappears, there are no mental factors and there are no
material properties caused by mind. That is what is called the
attainment of cessation. When one is in the attainment of
cessation, one is devoid of all mental activities. At that
moment the meditator has no Citta, no Cetasikas and no Rūpa
born of Citta. A person in Nirodha-samāpatti is like a statue.
The difference between a statue and him is that he is still
living, although he stops breathing, although he has no mental
activities, but his body is still living; his body still has
Jīvitindriya and there is also heat in the body.
