(I'm a Pāḷi beginner)
I think that should be bhava-cakka, rather than bhāva-cakka. I double checked in DPR's dictionary and a desktop dictionary.
I guess bhava is closely related to bhavana, usually translated in English as "becoming" (such as in the dependent origination formula), whereas bhāvanā usually translated as "mental cultivation, meditation."

Interestingly Bhante Gunaratana's http://www.bhavanasociety.org/ : on their home page you can see their official logo says "bhāvanā society", but in the welcoming message it says "bhavana society." Pretty funny now that I know the difference with the macron. For all the folks celebrating the most important American holiday of the year this past weekend (superbowl sunday), I would say they already are dedicated members of a bhavana society.

'knowledge consisting in contemplation of dissolution' of all forms of existence, is one kind of insight: see: visuddhi VI, 2.

Self-mortification = self-torture, is one of the two extremes to be avoided, the other extreme being addiction to sensual pleasures kāma-sukha, whilst The Noble Eightfold Middle Path constitutes the Middle Path.

In-and-out-breathing, are bodily constructions kāya-sankhāra, while directed thought and sustained thinking vitakka and vicara are called verbal constructions vacī-sankhāra, see: sankhara . In-and-out-breathing forms one of the 6 aspects of the wind-element.

lit.: 'I am'-conceit, 'ego-conceit', may range from the coarsest pride and self-assertion to a subtle feeling of one's distinctiveness or superiority that persists, as the 8th fetter samyojana, until the attainment of Arahantship or Nobility.

It falsely assumes an entity 'I' the be real and existent. It is based upon the comparison of oneself with others, and may, therefore, manifest itself also as a feeling of inferiority or the claim to be equal see: māna. It has to be distinguished from 'ego-belief' sakkāya-ditthi which implies a definite belief or view ditthi concerning the assumption of a self, personality or soul, and, being the 1st of the mental chains, which disappears at attainment of Stream-Entry sotāpatti. Even when the five lower mental chains have vanished in a Noble Disciple, there is still in him, with regard to the five groups of clinging, a slight remaining measure of the conceit 'I am', of the desire 'I am', of the latent tendency 'I am' see: S. XXII, 89. māna This is the root assumption of Egoism.

The unconscious beings, are a class of divine beings in the fine-material world. There are, Bhikkhus, divine beings known as the unconscious ones. As soon, however, as in those beings consciousness arises, those beings will vanish from that world. Now, Bhikkhus, it may happen that one of those beings after vanishing from that world, may reappear in this world. D. 24.

An Abhidhamma term signifying a 'state of consciousness arisen spontaneously, i. e. without previous deliberation, preparation, or prompting by others; hence: 'unprepared, unprompted'. This term and its counterpart sasankhārikacitta, probably go back to a similar distinction made in the Suttas A. IV, 171; path 184. See Tab. I; examples in Vis.M XIV, 84f.
