If your question relates to if they are not-self why cant others experience them the only reason you cannot know mine is because we have different conditions acting on us at different times and so experience is always varied for each psycho-physical organism.
Acting on what? At different times?
Well lets for say example perception, lets say you really like red cars and i really hate them (both because of ignorance of course)
There is only the red car but our ignorant perception is different because of different kinds of craving, of wanting and adverting so the experience is different
Lets take another example of death
You really enjoy life and im really depressed (again because of ignorance on both parts)
Your perception of death is fear, mine might be delight
Again there is only death, but our different cravings change experience, your crave existence, i crave annihilation (no realtion to this thread lol)
What does it act on? well all different things, consciousness, mental formations etc but all experience is experienced by the aggregates themselves, not by a self and so not-self
When there is perception, its just perception, not "my perception"
When there is cognition, its just cognition
Anatta states that whatever is experienced or conditioned is not-self its just the experiences differ for different beings in some slight reguards (i.e. a blind man, a deaf man etc)
OK. Why qualify the differences as slight? I imagine experiencing blindness must be pretty substantially different than experiencing sight.
ok slight may have been a wrong word to use
In what way do you think these three experiences differ? In other words, what quality do you associate with death which you do not associate with birth?
Birth has the quality of coming forth, of generation, death has the quality of ending, of expiring
Birth depends on death and death depends on birth, they are interconnected and differ in their dependencies thus giving them different characteristics
Birth and death are conditioned, dependently arisen and so impermanent, unstable and so not-self
If death didnt lead to birth then there would have been nibbana years ago
Dont worry I have no idea where Im going with this line of questioning.
No its an interesting line of questioning
Does this answer?
