static phenomenon

Phenomena that are unaffected by causes and circumstances and, consequently, do not change from moment to moment and do not produce any effects.

Phenomena that are unaffected by causes and circumstances and, consequently, do not change from moment to moment and do not produce any effects. Somewhat similar to unchanging facts, they are imputed about some validly knowable phenomenon and only exist and can be validly known so long as the basis for their imputation lasts. Sometimes translated as "static abstractions." Some translators render the term as "permanent phenomena."

Tibetan: rtag-pa
