Time with no opportunity for the attainment of Path and Fruition (i.e. Magga and Phala); eight occasions where the above conditions prevail

The eight Faulty Conditions are:
(1)  Being born in the realms of Continuous Suffering, Niraya; 
(2)  Being born in the animal world;
(3)  Being born in the realm of every-hungry beings, petas, and also including the miserable and frightened beings, asurakyas; 
(4)  Being born in the Non-material realm where the life-span of beings is immense and in the Brahma realms where beings are without consciousness; 
(5)  Being born in a place not visited by the Buddha or the arahats; 
(6)  Being a holder of wrong views; 
(7)  Being born with intelligence not adequate for understanding the Teaching;
