As with language itself, however, this relation tends to invite endless rounds of conceptual proliferation:

Dependent on the eye and forms, visual-cognitive awareness arises. The meeting of the three is contact. With contact as condition there is feeling. What one feels, that one apperceives. What one apperceives, that one thinks about ( vitakketi). What one thinks about, that one conceptually proliferates ( papañceti). With what one has conceptually proliferated as the source (nidāna), apperceptions and notions tinged by conceptual proliferation beset a man with respect to past, future, and present forms cognizable through the eye, [and so on, up to:] mind-objects cognizable through the mind
