Whatever aging, decrepitude, brokenness, graying, wrinkling, decline of life-force, weakening of the faculties of the various beings in this or that group of beings, that is called aging. Whatever deceasing, passing away, breaking up, disappearance, dying, death, completion of time, break up of the aggregates, casting off of the body, interruption in the life faculty of the various beings in this or that group of beings, that is called death.
Let's see ,
aging of a (view) , decrepit of a (view) , breaking of a (view) , graying of a (view) , wrinkling of a (view) , declining of a life force , weakening of the faculties of the various (views) , in this group or that group of (views) , that is called aging .
If aging & death was biological, then I think the suttas would say Arahants & Buddhas age & die. But the suttas appear to say Arahants & Buddhas do not age & die (marana).
The dependent origination apply to ignorant person . The cessation of dependent origination apply to arhat and the Buddha .
