Points of Controversy
22.6. Of the Unmoral
Controverted Point: That all dream-consciousness is ethically neutral.
Theravādin: You admit, do you not, that a dreamer may (in dreams) commit murder, theft, etc.? How then can you call such consciousness ethically neutral?
Uttarapāthakas: If I am wrong, was it not said by the Exalted One that dream-consciousness was negligible? If so, my proposition holds good.
