5 aggregates 五蘊

Please refer to URL below for the fine-tuned translation of the Heart Sutra. I translated 5 aggregates as "human" before, but this time translated as "5 factors that construct human being" (body, sense, emotion, will, consciousness). And I commented on those relations as followings. 
sense [5 senses] → emotion [delusion] → consciousness [reason] → will [motivation] → action [body, speech, mind] → consequence [happiness or suffering] 
I came to conviction that Buddha understood this human structure, mastered the method to control his emotions [delusion] by his consciousness [reason] and was released from all sufferings.
