I'm wondering if the modern interpretation of "papañca" (as "mental proliferation", "prolific conceptualisation"), "sati" (as "objective observation"), and "see things as they are" (as no conceptualization, no mental proliferation) has led to the modern understanding and practice of vipassana.
For the Buddha's teaching on "sati", please see MN 10.
For my understanding of "papañca", please see the following thread:

For my understanding of "see things as they are" (see things without the seven underlying tendencies/drives -- "Anusayā"), please see:
