I was re-watching this today and I think Shawn and Phillip would be very interested in some parts of it.

Shawn might be interested in how Daniel describes Equanimity -- basically it has it's own "fractal" progress of insight within it, complete with "mini-dark night" aspects and at 20:00 he talks about how you can cycle "high up"
in the progress of insight.

Phillip might be interested in how multiple fruitions are possible, described at 17:00 or so. (NOTE: edited post, this said 19:00 but it's actually 17:00)

Mhmm, yeah, it was interesting to look at the map again and actually, to see equanimity broken down into sub-stages. The stuff at the top of the table is fascinating... really juicy!

That was quite timely because I'd been pondering how the rapid cycle back to another fruition was possible. It's nice to see the map brought to life like that. I need watch it again really when I've got a proper spare half hour.

I have got a question though, the last couple of times I've done samatha, what's happened is that I've gone very quickly into a very concentrated eq like state, in about 7-8 minutes, with no obvious development of any jhana and then pop, and recycle. So I suppose I'm wondering if you can simply shift up those strata without actually particularly experiencing any corresponding jhana or nana? (Well, I suppose you can!)

Another thought - relating to the mini-dark night in eq. For me, at least, I find there is what I think of as 'false Equanimity' in Reobservation. All the unpleasant sensations and mental jingle-jangle will be going full tilt and then it suddenly settles and there's a feeling of relief and calm and then just when that seems the end of it, boom! the jingle jangle comes back.

Ha! I hadn't thought about that being mappable, but I can totally remember this occurring at times:

(I'm using Brrrr and Brap for the wierd dark night vibrations in the below)
