May I know which text to be referred to for 1) ?
Unfortunately, he did not mention the sutta.
Perhaps this could be Abhidhamma.
Ven Dhammanando is the best person to clarify this.

As for Arupa being has 6 senses ? Contradiction, Arupa being has body?
Yes, I thought the same.
What he saying is you experience the six senses but there is no re-birth into them.
This is another contradiction I have to sort out.
