  • Examples showing how ignorance prevents us from seeing impermanence and lack of inherent existence
  • Refutation of inherently existent characteristics by examining if these can occur consecutively or simultaneously
  • Views on production, duration and cessation held by lower Buddhist and non-Buddhist schools
  • Refutation through the consequence of infinite regress if the characteristics existed inherently
  • Refutation by examining whether defining characteristics are inherently one with or inherently different from the object
  • Refuting that production is inherently existent because the agent of production exists inherently
  • Refuting inherent production of functional and nonfunctional phenomena
