When there is this this is, with arising of this this arises...

If this is so, then the idea that
10. Bhava-paccayā jāti: "Through the (rebirth-producing karma-) process of becoming is conditioned rebirth."
11. Jāti-paccayā jarāmaranam, etc.: "Through rebirth are conditioned old age and death (sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair). Thus arises this whole mass of suffering again in the future."
somehow refers to a continual on-going process going on during one's very life is also meaningless.
Then how does viññāna function in the khandhas?It is the same thing like sankhārā-paccayā viññānam.

One may dismiss the three life interpretation of conditioned co-production, but the moment-to-moment interpretation also ceases to have any meaning if one denies time/process. If something conditions something, there is a movement in time from not being conditioned to being conditioned, or from not being arisen to being arisen. Time.
