This was a bit off topic in the other thread and I think it might be worth discussing:

Does the definition of "dhamma" you posted at the top of this page actually exclude the raw stimuli?
Yes, I'm going at great lengths to make that point, as it's the point of differentiation that's either not cognized by people, or it's one they typically wish to paper over and/or grant no significance to... but here it is in the extended definition provided...
OK. So what are the implications for practice with this view of "dhamma"? What difference does it make, practically speaking?
