Reading how mindfulness was done by Ledi Sayadaw within the scaffold of the Abhidhamma was very interesting. It’s clear from psychological and neurological research that “perception” is not just taking a camera-doesn’t-lie photo, it’s a cognitive act, a construction. Automated, too fast, usually, for people to distinguish the jump from, to use the Tibetan frame, sixth consciousness to seventh consciousness.
