conditioned phenomena; All mental phenomena - form, sensations, impulses, perceptions and thoughts - are conditioned. That is, they arise from causes and conditions, are subject to change, and have no essential self-nature.
Phenomena (dhammas) constituted of the five khandas (Skt. skandhas), objects for paticcasamuppada (Skt. pratityasamutpada), subject to arising and passing away. With a handful of exceptions (notably Enlightenment itself), all phenomena fall into this category.
