"Bhikkhus, the arising, continuation, production,  and manifestation of form is the arising of suffering, the continuation of disease, the manifestation of aging-and-death.
The arising of feeling ... of perception ... of volitional formations ... of consciousness is the arising of suffering, the continuation of disease, the manifestation of aging-and-death.
"The cessation, subsiding, and passing away of form ... of consciousness is the cessation of suffering, the subsiding of disease, the passing away of aging-and-death."
