Any thing that has come into being is a named form. A conceptualized object.
To this extent only, Ananda,
is there birth,
disappearance and reappearance
to this extent is there verbal expression
to this extent is there getting to the root
to this extent is there knowing
to this extent is there scope
for discriminating and drawing distinctions
to this extent is there this run'n-round
showing up as some sort of being 'this'
at some place of being 'at'
that is to say:
only just as far as named-form with consciousness.
