What is the "middle way" between the two extremes of experiencing debilitating skeptical doubt, and ensuring that we don't falsely conclude that "Only this is true; anything else is worthless"?
There is, monks, an unborn— unbecome — unmade — unfabricated. If there were not that unborn — unbecome — unmade — unfabricated, there would not be the case that escape from the born — become — made — fabricated would be discerned. But precisely because there is an unborn — unbecome — unmade — unfabricated, escape from the born — become — made — fabricated is discerned.
This refers to right view which is the actual experience itself:Only this is true; anything else is worthless
Path is the middle-way…leading to knowledge & vision with right release.On right view…DN22:
And, bhikkhus, what is Right View?
Insight-knowledge of dukkha, Insight-knowledge of the origin of dukkha, Insight-knowledge of the cessation of dukkha, Insight-knowledge of the path leading to the cessation of dukkha.
This, bhikkhus, is called Right View.
Transcends between the fabricated and the unborn.
Transcends between Samsara and Nibbana.
Why actual experience?
Because the N8P is only a raft!
