#1. “There is nothing to which that gati belongs to. It is due to defiled gati, mind behaves as if it is entity right?”

I didn’t say anything specifically because sometimes it is not easy to convey ideas in words.

  • We could say that “gati belongs to a person.”  But those gati keep changing. 
  • Another way to say it: “a person exists in this world” until attaining Arahanthood. After Arahanthood, it is just waiting for the body (which is a vipaka) to exhaust its energy and die. Until then, there will still be some suffering due to the physical body. Once the physical body dies, that is the end of suffering.

#3 and #4 are fine.
