Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?
I don't know why you are asking this question to me and Namdrol. Probably Namdrol can give you the correct answer. I can only give you my interpretation of what I learned. So, caveat emptor
How can you condition space? Forget our Western notion of space (that apparently can be twisted and bent) and think abstract space, as it was conceived. How can you condition it? Space has no defining characteristic, nor can we consider it in isolation prior to or apart from such characteristics. As it has no defining characteristics, how could it be conditioned? What would be conditioned? However, space appears
to exist even if nothing positive can be asserted of it. So we must conclude that space is not existing, not non-existing, nor both existing and non-existing... as usual. So it has only conventional existence, thus not being ultimate. It can't yet be conditioned (what's there to condition and how?)
I never read anything about the Space element dissolving during the death process. Only Earth, Water, Fire and Wind or Air dissolving... after that come the 5th to the 8th cycles, but I don't remember learning about the dissolution of the Space element... what am I missing?
