Hi Retro,

Sorry, I'm lost now. If (almost) everything in sankhara, what is the use of the concept if there is no distinction between phenomena? Take walking, for example. What labels would you use to describe the difference between intention to lift the foot and the motion of the foot?

Where did this reality stuff come from? As Tilt, says, it's all empty.

But I don't understand how you propose to understand that emptiness experientially unless you can discern the causation/fabrication/etc. The connection between intention and motion, for example.

So you observe how those things arise?
That's what I said, I thought.
