But whoever walking, standing, sitting, or lying down overcomes thought, delighting in the stilling of thought: he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening. § 110. {Iti 4.11; Iti 115}

Nathan,

Thanks :) I hesitated because I wasn't sure if it was specific to Mahayana.

An even more simple example of the complexity of consciousness is human beings when they're asleep and dreaming. There's a lack of sensory input from outside, yet the mind has vivid experiences.

For those still wandering along, this article discusses many of the issues raised here, such as the difference between necessary and sufficient conditions:
PATICCA-SAMUPPADA - DEPENDENT ORIGINATION
Ven. Ajahn Brahamvamso

http://www.bswa.org/modules/icontent/index.php?page=65

I also recommend Ajahn Brahm's recent talk:
MN9 Sammaditthi Sutta
Monday, 12 January 2009 6:00 p.m.
Ajahn Brahm explains MN9 the Sammaditthi (Right View) Sutta.

http://www.bswa.org/audio/podcast/SuttaStudy.rss.php

This covers many of the same points, and, as far as I can tell, Ajahn Brahm speaks from experience...
