Indian Philosophy »  Causality »  Conditions (pratyaya) »  Refutation of the four kinds of conditions »  Although causal conditions (hetupratyaya) are momentary, they only mean conglomeration, therefore they are neither ultimately existent nor absolutely non-existent »  Ultimately existent or absolutely non-existent conditions cannot produce any effect; since there is the arising of effects as well as arising and non-arising (as ultimate existence and absolute non-existence) are mutually exclusive, therefore conditions cannot be either ultimately existent or absolutely non-existent
