Your conception of the elements and your understanding of what the passage is saying is different from mine. I should have expected that and if I had, I wouldn't have responded, knowing how it would turn out.

Also, the "view of a certain monk" you're referring to as at least a stream-enterer.

And the definition of atthaṅgama is annihilation, disappearance (Cone's Pali dictionary).

The non-doing of any evil,
The performance of what's skillful,
The cleansing of one's own mind:
This is the Buddhas' teaching.

Honestly I do not understand what exactly you guys mean by "inherent". Can somebody explain this to me so I can take part in the discussion too ? Things do exist but they are impermanent. Sounds pretty simple to me. I really don't understand what you mean by "inherent"
You'll have a better chance finding a moderate rebel in Ildib than finding a buddhist who ever changed his views. Views are there to be clung to. They are there to be defended with all one's might. Whatever clinging one will removed in regards to sense pleasures by practicing the path - that should be compensated with increased clinging to views. This is the fundamental balance of the noble 8thfold path. The yin and yang.
