I just take the aggregates to be a model of the way we experience things. Another model of experience is The All, ie the sense bases.vinasp wrote: For me, all aggregates are only mind-fabricated, none are real. I think you are taking the five aggregates as being real, this is certainly the majority view. So for me, it is only the cessation of constructed experience. But saying this may be of no help to a worldling since he is adding constructed experience to everything, and cannot distinguish between constructed and non-constructed experience.
Clearly the aggregates are conditioned ( I prefer "conditional" ), as compared to Nibbana, which is unconditioned. So Nibbana represents the "escape" from the conditioned, as the Udana passage puts it. http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .irel.html
With this view of the unconditioned as an escape from the conditioned, it does make sense to talk about "the 3 marks of conditioned existence", as somebody suggested earlier in the thread.
I'm not sure I understand your distinction above between constructed and non-constructed experience - could you give a practical example?
It sounds reminiscent of MN1 where there is seeing things as really are versus conceiving about them.
