You all know that L. Cousins has proposed a curious interpretations of the "Abhidhamma dhammas problem".
In his writings on Buddhism and Abhidhamma he always presumes that Abhidhamma authors by the instant succession of the "momentarily" dhammas meant an almost opposite thing: that there is no discrete entities in space-time and in our mental/psychological processes in the first place -- there is only an ever-changing continuity, which renders it literally impossible to dissect that flow into atom-like, indivisible entities. It is obvious that this idea - in its form at least - is quite different from the Abhidhammic view. I have always wondered, how come L. Cousins never explicates this great presupposition. What do you think about that?
