It is interesting to note that we create solid objects and characteristics out of our bare experience based on how they impact us and how they are of use to us, which comes down to being a matter of how they can service our cravings. So in that way craving serves to perpetuate the delusion of permanency and satisfactoriness, as well as reinforcing the duality of an internal self-agent vs a world of external objects. Thickets of views and all that.

Hi Rick,

When you are thinking, the mind is scattered. When the mind is scattered there is no samadhi (concentration). When there is no samadhi, there can be no insight (panna).
