Your link is broken. D:

This is interesting but a bit hard to follow.  Is the idea that all of these are leading to the same thing?  I don't see presence talked about much when people use the progress of insight and its fruits.

Oh, and I really liked the first chart and the idea that there's a multi-dimentional way things can present.  It made me feel a little less lost because I could check a number of boxes, haha. emoticon

Yes, there's too much information to process, I guess it's more of a draft. I think that not all roads lead to the same place, but that he's pointing both a starting point to the practitioner's specific situation/problem/characteristics, and some methods that may be handy when in such and such problem.

It's good to see that maps are upside down, not a generic map of enlightenment stages where every practitioner should try to fit into, but starting from the specific qualities/atributes/deficencies of the practitioner, and how to overcome them.
