Its irrelevant because the suttas don't appear to provide this meaning. I already said what a word means in Sanskrit may not apply to Buddhism.
I have already explained to you many times before. Since you have no interest, it is against Dhamma principles to explain to you again.
If you wish to personally disagree with the suttas, you are free to. The suttas were plainly quoted.
I have not disagreed with the above. However, once the citta is defiled, consciousness will also be defiled. This is why the suttas, as quoted many times, refer to consciousness & contact defiled with ignorance.
In conclusion to my point of view, since D.O. refers to the arising (samudaya) of consciousness with ignorance as a condition; "nirodha" would appear to refer to the opposite, namely, the non-arising or cessation of consciousness with ignorance as a condition. In other words, "nirodha" would not refer to the cessation of a consciousness that is not defiled by ignorance. For example, when an undefiled Arahant sleeps at night, this is not "nirodha" of the Arahant's consciousness. Regards
