Study Guide Menachot 13

The mishna seems to contradict the previous mishna as it implies that the remainder can become pigul if one had thoughts of eating half a shiur of the remainder tomorrow and half a shiur of the kometz tomorrow, even though the kometz can’t be eaten. Two answers are offered. Can a pigul thought about the frankincense during the act of kemitza create pigul that one would be obligated in karet? Since the frankincense is not the same object as the meal offering, even though they go together, do we view these as one unit or not? Rabbi Yossi says there is no karet. Reish Lakish explains the logic behind his argument although questions are raised regarding his explanation. Is collecting the frankincense from the meal offering mixture considered a sacrificial rite such that it would be forbidden by a non Kohen?
