Even though I could not attain Arahantship by reading your post.
Thank you for directing my attention to a very important teaching of Buddha.
Papanca is a mental state not understood by many. (I understood that only yesterday)
Please read Chapter 11 and 12 of link below for full appreciation of this.
"From whatever source papañcasaññasakha beset a man, if, in
regard to that, there is nothing to be delighted in, asserted, or clung
to, then this itself is the end of the underlying tendencies to attachment,
to aversion, to views, to doubts, to conceit, to attachment towards
existence, and to ignorance. This itself is the end of taking
rods and weapons, quarrels, disputes, accusations, slander and false
speech. Here these evil unskilful states cease without remainder."http://www.seeingthroughthenet.net/file ... ed_III.pdf
