My intention was to point out that based upon how you regard some fragment of experience, it could simultaneously be rightly regarded as falling within multiple aggregates at once. For example, something that is a volitional formation, could also be rightly regarded as mind-consciousness.
Thus, these are not mutually exclusive divisions with separable noumena. They are often different ways of subjectively and experientially regarding one and the same thing. In other words, khandas are a classification of function, not form, and the function is attributed
by the experiencer. They does not exist independently and separate from that personal attribution.
If this was not explicitly called out, all manner of incorrect and/or irrelevant conclusions could be drawn through the application of logical argument, and I didn't want you to set about "logically proving" falsities through not having full visibility of the assumptions which implicitly underpin such analysis.
