Though in parts it's been a bit technical, I have found this to be an interesting and useful discussion. :smile:

On the subject of dissolution, it must be asked - what is dissolving? Is it kamma?
I think a good overview of one school of thought can be gleaned here....



I urge people to carefully read the above and compare it to your own readings of the suttas. A lot of the material contained in the essay is very convincing on a pseudo scientific/ pseudo sutta level - almost, but not quite.
