4 NAME and FORM
With Consciousness comes the need to divide the world into systems.
Dependent Origination Name and Form
THE LEVEL OF ORDINARY
On a physical level the world is sorted by differences. On a mental level these differences
are named and labelled. In this way the world becomes relative to the Self.
THE LEVEL OF DEEPER UNDERSTANDING
Everything is constantly in a state of change. Mental and physical attributes are mutually dependent.
Nothing, including the Self, has permanence or solidity.
THE LEVEL OF ULTIMATE WISDOM
No Self resides in Name and Form (Body and Mind). What is named and formed are composites of inter-relating parts. Without a definite combination of constituents, there is nothing to name or form.
