Greetings Kevin,

Would you say dhammas (including paramattha-dhammas) are experiential or ontological realities?

Metta,

Greetings pt1,

I'm trying to ascertain whether Kevin's understanding is such that "dhammas" are modes/aspects of experience and/or things that exist independent of being cognized.

And in turn, which (or both) of those is Abhidhamma concerned with.

(Again, my language here isn't likely to precisely align with Abhidhamma-speak, but I'll try to speak clearly)

Metta,
