The Cyclicity of Dhamma – Part4

"The knowledge of change of an object of Dhamma is a mental construct (samskaranaya) not an inference made about an absolute real change. This means that if one refrains from construction of change, nothing changes. It also means that change is whatever one constructs it to be. In other words, the knowledge of change is the change. In this case, a concept of an observer separated from the observed is irrelevant and not needed to understand change. As a result, this concept of change does not distinguish between changes in general and what may regarded as “self” change in the conventional sense."
