#1 Lal, There are no “friends”, “enemies”, “nice music”, “bad music”, “praise”, “insult” etc in ultimate reality, right?

That is what I meant by “figment of imagination“, as in they are just labeled as such by the mind but are not out there in reality.

#2 These “defiled perceptions” are responsible for arising of sōmanassa vedanā with “nice music” or with “praise” and are responsible for arising of “dōmanassa vedanā ” with “insult” or “bad music” for example, right?

There is just constantly evolving combinations of matter and energy.
