A Dukka Machine...
Mental formations (sankara) is a part of Dukka (five aggregates) which generates more Dukka. It is like a Dukka amplifier.
"Sankatha Abhisankarothi" (in Pali)
It basically "cetana", which is essentially kamma. Kamma is like a field, preparing for the plantation of another seed (vinnana) with the aid of water (tanha). The final result is a birth.
This leads to more rupa, vedana, sanna, snakara, vinnana.
