So matter/material form is the five sense organs (eyes, ears, tongue, body and nose) and their objects (visual, aural, gustatory, bodily and olfactory sensations). It seems though that "indriya" does not refer just to the physical sense organs, but to the related sense consciousness as well, to the process of sensing.Matter or material form is (1-5) the five sense-faculties, (6-10) the
five object-referents [or object-fields of the five sense-faculties],
arid (11) the non-informative.
As for 11. The endnote says:
Clear as mud, right?The SA.IV.Glossary.520 describes them as follows:
avijnapti-rupa: Non-informative matter. This is a special type of matter (rupa)
which constitutes a non-informative action (avijnapti-karma). It is non-resistant and
invisible, and comes into existence in dependence on the force of a volition (cetana),
an informative action and a set of great elements (mahabhuta). It is a special type of
derived matter (upadaya-rupa) which is not comprised of atoms (paramanu).
avijnapti-karma: Non-informative action. Unlike an informative action (vijnapti
karma) which informs us of the mental state of the doer, this is a karmic force which,
once projected by a bodily or vocal action (karma), continues to exist as a series
invisibly; hence, non-informative.
Interestingly, based on pigment colours and not on light.10a. Vaibhasikas: Visible form...
1. Color is fourfold:
Strange that "triangle" is not one of the basic shapes since it occurs everywhere in nature and is the basis for simple construction.2. Shape (iv. 3c) is eightfold:
vii. even [or regular],
viii. uneven [or irregular].
What? Why?Some make one [additional] color out of the firmament, which appears
as a wall of lapis-lazuli...
