Abhidhamma View : Dissociation Condition

Dear Members,

:candle: Abhidhamma View : Dissociation Condition :candle:
[Presented by Dr.Tep Sastri @ SariputtaDhamma/JTN/Mult]

CMA VIII, p. 321:

The dissociation condition is threefold: at the moment of rebirth-linking the heart-base is a condition for resultant (mental aggregates), and consciousness and mental factors for conascent matter, by way of conascence; the postnascent consciousness and mental factors for this prenascent material body by way of postnascence; the six bases, in the course of life, for the seven consciousness elements by way of prenascence.

Dissociation condition is a condition where the conditioning state is either a mental phenomenon that assists present material phenomena, or a mental phenomenon that assists present mental phenomena. In this relationship the two components --the conditioning state and the conditioned states-- are necessarily of different types: if one is matter the other must be mind; if one is mind the other must be matter. This is like a mixture of water and oil, which remains separate though placed together.

Thus at the moment of rebirth the heart-base and the mental aggregates arise simultaneously, each a dissociation condition for the other by reason of the particular characteristics that distinguish them as material and mental phenomena. At the moment of rebirth,again, the mental aggregates are a condition for the other kindsof kamma-born matter, and during the course of existence for mind-born matter, by way of dissociation condition. Dissociation also comprises prenascent and postnascent types: the former obtains between matter as the conditioning state and mind as the conditioned state; the latter obtains between mind as the conditioning state and matter as the conditioned state. These are identical with prenascence support condition and postnascence condition, respectively.
