Visuddhimagga XIV-195

497. Tadekajjhaṃ abhisaṃyūhitvā abhisaṅkhipitvāti taṃ atītādīhi padehi visuṃ visuṃ niddiṭṭhaṃ rūpaṃ sabbaṃ ruppanalakkhaṇasaṅkhāte ekavidhabhāve paññāya rāsiṃ katvā rūpakkhandhoti vuccatīti ayamettha attho.
Ñ(XIV,195): All that together in the mass and in the gross: by making all that materiality, separately described by the words 'past', etc., into a collection by understanding its oneness, in other words, its characteristic of being molested (ruppana), it comes to be called the materiality (rūpa) aggregate. This is the meaning here.
