Talking about experience is useless. Then you have to get into what is an experiencer. The idea is that you are going to find out there isn't one. It's not the experience of impermanence that matters, it's perception of it. Perception happens by way of six senses. Once you know everything is impermanent the mind figures out that it's because nothing lies at a base. Then one can give up having any views, which is the fruit. Or you can just give up having any views; you don't have to focus on impermanence, which is more or less a teaching. One can just accept the teaching because it makes sense. The Atthakavagga talks about no views in a standalone way.

This has gone on long enough! Let's dispense with the language games and stop not talking about not talking about what we're not talking about.

I'm verklempt. It was not my intention to upset. I could just flog myself, mea culpa mea mulpa mea culpa. Experience. What are we talking about? Mind. It's nothing. It's no body's fault. Honestly, sheesh. We should have a pot luck.

Greetings,

But how does the "untenable" "actually work"?
