In CMA compendium of miscellaneous it says that 46 consciousness arise in the eye door. How can this be?
I've thought that only two types of consciousness arise in any of 5 sense doors (kusala vipaka or akusala vipaka) and even then, the interpretation of a/kusala is itself mental (eye doesn't know if the sight is wholesome or unwholesome resultant).
CMA says that these arise at the eye door:
1 five-door adverting
2 eye consciousness
2 receiving consciousness
29 sense sphere javanas
It seems that almost all of these are mental, not belonging to cakkhu-pasada or bare eye consciousness.
I am not even sure that there can be kusala and akusala vipaka at the eye, after all the eye faculty sees. It is the mind that interprets things as desirable or undesirable, right?
(the only thing is that the body which can feel pain or pleasure which may feel kusala/akusala vipaka. 4 sense faculties themselves are supposed to feel only neutral equinimity).
Can anyone clarify please?
