Thank you for that, but no one here is disputing that paramitas are positive attributes, and that individually (though not necessarily as a set called paramitas) that they were taught by the Buddha. I agree with Bhikkhu Bodhi that it is hard to fathom someone becoming enlightened without at least some minimal development in this space.
This discussion is specifically about Virgo's argument that "it is possible to achieve enlightenment in this lifetime, but only if you have been developing all of the perfections for many. many lifetimes already". You are learned in the Abhidhamma and the commentaries - do you have anything that might support or refute his argument?
