"Logical Notation" For The Agggregates

Postby bhavanirodha » Wed Feb 29, 2012 2:37 am

Dear all,

would anyone here happen to know what form the logical notation for the five aggregates as a set/series would take if:
R, V, S, Vf, C = form... Consciousness.

Metta and bowing,
Andrew

Dear all,

Thanku Santa100! What i'm looking for is something that probably looks like
{R... C} as per the elements above. I want to represent them as an ordered set, such that, with the substitution of said notation for a given aggregate, allows for aggregate paradigms to be collapsed.
Eg. "Is {R... C} permanent or impermanent?" would expand to the five questions, one per aggregate, posed by the Buddha.

Again, my concern is the correct notation and representations.

Bowing and thanks,
Andrew

Dear Retro,

What grounds did I provide for such a concern? Newcomers to DhammaWheel are not neccessarily newcomers to the Dhamma.

Metta,

Hi Mike,

I am surprised that they still have not corrected that misprint, it must
be over twenty years now.

MN 43.9 reads: "Feeling, perception, and consciousness, friend - these
states are conjoined ..."

Regards, Vincent.

Dear Retro,

Your first post didn't address my question (and I feel, a little snarky), while your second is altogether confusing. I'm sorry if I come off as accusatory, but could you clarify your intentions and meaning?

Metta and peace,
Bowing and thanks,
Andrew
