Hi Alan,

Certainly we should take that seriously, but there are a lot of options there, so one would need a book chapter to cover them
The short answer is that those are the sorts of things I've been talking about. "He is aware of this, or that, or ....": One notices the the arising and vanishing of phenomena.

For the last part, see this thread: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=15207#p219318
