Consciosness = Identification?

Postby DAWN » Sun Sep 02, 2012 9:40 am

'Ignorance causes volitional formation ', as i understand, means that : Ignorance of anatta create a volitional formations; when there is duality view that devides on 'me and not-me', and by this illusion causes volitional formations. If is that, so in the next step of causation 'Volitional formation causes consciosness ', consciosness can be understood like identification?

Also I would like to ask if the pali word that was traducted as 'consciousness' ma be traduced as 'identification'?

Thanks you.
