UKT notes :
Sait & Setathaik - As tentative meanings based on Theravada Buddhism, I am giving:
- Citta {sait~ta.} aka {sait} - a single "thought" element
- Cetasika {s-ta.i.ka.} aka {s-ta.aik} - a similar element associated with a particular thought element, i.e. "co-thought" or "perception".
Please note that I am looking at Thought processes of Abhidhamma as Input-output processes of Computer technology. My tentative meanings may change with more insight into the parallel processes.
