3. And what, beggars, are the diverse data?
4. Eye data
These beggars, are what are called the diverse data.
5. And what, beggars, are the diverse own-impacts that come to be as the result of the diversity of data?
6. Eye data, beggars results in the reproduction of own-eye-impact,
ear data results in the reproduction of own-ear-impact,
nose data results in the reproduction of own-nose-impact,
tongue data results in the reproduction of own-tongue-impact,
body data results in the reproduction of own-body-impact,
mind data results in the reproduction of own-mind-impact.
Such then, beggars, are the diverse own-impacts that come to be as the result of the diverse data.
 Samphassa. SAM = Own, with, con; PHASSA = touch, con-tact. PED: [saŋ+phassa] contact, reaction. My somewhat awkword "own-" is to overcome the general bypassing of this aspect of the idea expressed in this term by our common use of the word contact, that is, that bound up in the idea is the notion of self, ownership.
 Paṭicca. PATI = rebound, bounce, percuss, result. As in PED following, meaning to return upon, double back upon. PED: Paṭi (indecl.) [Ved, prati, to Idg. *preti as in Latin pretium (from *pretios) "price" (cp. precious), i.e. equivalent; Gr. pre/s (aeol.), proti/, pro/s against] directional prefix in well-defined meaning of "back (to), against, towards, in opposition to, opposite." As preposition (with acc. and usually postponed) towards, near by, at; usually spelt pati. PATICCA = rebounded-stuff; PATI+ CCA = k-kha, but always of a living being with the 6 senses, usually just 'human': PED: grounded on, on account of, concerning, because.
 Uppajjati. UP = Up (go figure); PA = pass; JATI = birth (jump, burn this, this burns): Up pa birth; up-pass-born; appearance, arising, re-production, production.
 Note the difference between this and the statement in the first sutta. This correctly follows the Pali and is necessary for the following suttas to have been recorded correctly. Additionally the first category 'eye data', etc. can encompass (stand in for) the other two categories: "form data, eye-consciousness data".
