No, not always, though this is the sense of loka that merits the most attention as far as the development of understanding is concerned.
Thank you Venerable. This makes sense as, for example, the non six sense definition usage and understanding of "loka" as in "vast loka interspaces" is mostly irrelevant to developing the path, whereas "insofar as it disintegrates it is called the loka" denoting the senses certainly is relevant. I hope I uderstand correctly.
