Points of Controversy

23.4. Of Self-governed Destiny

Controverted Point: That there is that which is not (a) lust, (b) hate, (c) delusion, (d) the corruptions, but which counterfeits each of them.

Theravādin: Do you imply that there is that which is not contact, not feeling, not perceiving, not volition, not cognition, not faith, not energy, not mindfulness, not samādhi, not understanding, but which simulates each of these?

Similarly for (b), (e), (d).
