Interpret it as three lives and you remove a lot of this from the present and so remove the chance to truly understand it and quench dukkha

Just a note, I don't mean to be off-topic.

I think it's very good that Craig is sounding his ideas off us. How many people have ever had an experience in meditation (maybe in the beginning) and say "Whoa! I've got it now!" Because sometimes meditation experiences can be really powerful! But through this discussion Craig is acknowledging here and there where his understandings may be fuzzy, so it's way better that he ask.

I'm glad we have these little communities, it's hard being an isolated practitioner. Better to do reality-checks with well-seasoned people, for sure.

Yes indeed, dukkha still is fine.

But for example, kamma and not-self start to make less sense when you remove rebirth.
At least my understanding of it, which is admittedly not all that mature yet :)

By the way, what I meant to say in my last post was that I've examined and considered your point of view carefully, not just rebirth in general. Hopefully we all take time to examine that at some point!
