Thank you for your previous replies.

I think there was a question which you missed answering:

1) In your post on ‘Avyakata Paticca Samuppada for Vipaka Viññana’, what is chaṭ­ṭhā­yata­na which you mentioned in #8 related to ‘nama paccaya chaṭ­ṭhā­yata­na?

In addition, I have a new question:

2) In the case of a uppatti PS cycle, is it possible for a single cycle to span more than 2 jati (births) or even more than 2 bhavas?

Thank you very much in advance for your reply.
