This is the realm of mindless beings who have only bodies without consciousness. So are they a bunch of statues? Maybe there's no point in trying to conceptualize it. Just curious, if anyone has insights. Thanks.

But whoever walking, standing, sitting, or lying down overcomes thought, delighting in the stilling of thought: he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening. § 110. {Iti 4.11; Iti 115}
