I meant in mind, in Mind!
My mind is Sound-Hearing mind, his mind is Sound-Hearing mind, both arise as a caustic response to the condition of Sound transmission, in an interconnected arising of mind.
This Sound-Hearer dharma is born as the sound enters our awareness, grows old as the sound plays its course, starts falling apart and disintegrates as the sound ends, and finally dies back into the unconditioned no-mind
Let's say, like a firework, big blast in the middle (the sound), followed by sparkles twinkling off in every direction (the hearers), and the whole thing is one big apparent structure before it falls and fades away
My understanding, which may be faulty,
is that awareness has no characteristics
but is experienced as
or you might say, becomes the experience of
when coming into contact with an object of that awareness.
So, it's like if you close your eyes, or go into a totally dark room with your eyes open and let them get adjusted to that,
there is visual awareness, but no object of visual awareness
so, there is nothing to see, and you don't think "i see something"
(except until you begin hallucinating).
mind does not arise (not to be confused with visualizations)
but as soon as a little bit of light is introduced,
awareness comes into contact with an object (the light).
and mind arises as the event of awareness meeting with phenomena.
With hearing, it is different because we can't shut our ears.
However, we actually hear a lot more than we are aware of.
You notice this especially if you live in a house that has electricity, a furnace, a refrigerator,
and suddenly all of the electricity stops.
The house becomes totally quiet for a moment.
You suddenly become aware of all of the stuff you heard
that you didn't even know you heard.
