And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.

It might be good to remember that the kind of self that you have is just the same as the kind of self that an Arahant has.

I found an answer to my OP question is beautifully explained in the following passge.

============
'He discerns that "Whatever disturbances that would exist based on the effluent of sensuality... the effluent of becoming... the effluent of ignorance, are not present. And there is only this modicum of disturbance: that connected with the six sensory spheres, dependent on this very body with life as its condition." He discerns that "This mode of perception is empty of the effluent of sensuality... the effluent of becoming... the effluent of ignorance. And there is just this non-emptiness: that connected with the six sensory spheres, dependent on this very body with life as its condition." Thus he regards it as empty of whatever is not there. Whatever remains, he discerns as present: "There is this." And so this, his entry into emptiness, accords with actuality, is undistorted in meaning, pure —
superior & unsurpassed.'

I imagine it is somewhat like playing a video game similie, you know whats going on, what to do, how to do it but you know its not really you on the screen, playing with perfect mindfulness, capped in skill and strategy.

i edited abit:) It should illustrate that in the game of samsara immoral actions have negative expected result, so perfectly enlightened/skilled in terms of strategy player wouldnt do these things. Some things would have certain outcomes he would act as optimally as is possible.

You ask without any read, or memorizing tipitaka.

Arahanta can think "I, me and myself", without taṇhā, diṭṭhi, māna, because it is just a word, it is not elementary particle. Word can be truth or fake. So arahanta can use the word without taṇhā, diṭṭhi, māna.

Arahanta, such as buddha, or ananda, still think "I, me and myself". Such as this sutta:
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html

In pali also use "ahaṃ,mayhaṃ, etc.", too.

So, your question is wrong, confuse, and no answer.
Above message maybe out of date. Latest update will be in massage's link.

Tipitaka memorization is a rule of monks. It isn't just a choice. They must done it.

Your smile.... everytime I play a role playing game, that come to my mind long before I read about your idea. Even when I play I have some mindfulness, because of my yoga and meditation routine daily.
