Hello green,

Kamma is intentional action. In non-ariyans like you and I, it flashes up in a millionth of a second or less, mostly fuelled by greed, hate or delusion. Attaching it later to a long rambling story filled with concepts explaining the action, the reasons you think you did an action, and the impact on all the other actors in your story is just part of papañca.
