Above question raised as a result of a previous postingviewtopic.php?f=12&t=19474&p=272956#p272914
Based on that can I say:
A) Though you have a human body, you could be an Arahant, Deva or even an animal.
B) Can a animal with its animal body could be an Arahant, human or Deva? If not why?
C) Does that mean Arahant also some thing like Deva or human?
When answering above please also consider the fact that a person is questioned to verify that he/she is a human when s/he is ordained as a monk.
There is an error in this particular translation that was cited here. The question Buddha was specifically asked about was will he be such and such beings in the future. Currently he was a human being, but since he was free from rebirth he would not become any such beings after death.
Humans can attain Arahantship. There is a Brahma named Tudu who attained Never Returner. In the realm of the Never Returners beings eventually attain Nibbana.
Animals are not a fortunate rebirth. They are impaired from attaining Arahantship.
An Arahant is a person who has attained Nibbana.
