Without interminable debate the internet would be a wasteland. Oh wait--there's always porn. Nevermind. :D

I don't know why but I'm curious to figure out what exactly your thought process is here. Could you try to be a little less cryptic? Flesh out what you're trying to say a little more. Because it seems to make no sense.

Are you trying to make some subtle point about how the aggregates etc. are not things in themselves but labels placed upon what is just transitory stuff, so to an arahant who thoroughly knows anicca the aggregates are not "real" as they are to those still with delusion?

Even then it's not that the aggregates don't exist, though, but that the unenlightened notion of what they are is deceptive. But that's the best I can do at trying to tease some meaning out of what you're saying.
