1. There is form, i.e. the tooth as matter.
2. There is a painful feeling.
3. There is a sight-, touch-, pain- perception of the tooth.
4. There is by the way of volitional reactions: resentment at pain, fear of possible consequences, greed for physical well-being, etc.
5. There is consciousness, -- an awareness of all this.
There is a sutta, I think, that states that with the arising of awareness - #5, that 4, 3, 2 are always part of the experience. Anyone know of such a text?
