The physical body that we occupy during our
lifetime is and remains a cosmic property all along; much so after we leave
it. Upon death its material contents start to merge back gradually and
completely into the Painca Mahabhuta of Cosmos. We know that Units of
Microcosmic entities like an atom, a molecule or a protozoic cell or an
advanced metazoic structure --- all have got their own , independent,
individual microcosmic mind acting as controlling faculty therein.. All
cells in a gland or an organ have a collective existence and hence they also
have a collective mind functioning as the controlling faculty of particular
In some microcosmic structures mind remains quite underdeveloped, such as in
the case of atoms and molecules etc. while in the case of a unit metazoic
life, say a human, the collective mind in the individual cell is
comparatively highly advanced, capable of responding to the abstract
functions of human (unit) minds and the underlying pure unit consciousness.
As per Idea and Ideology, Life is but a parallelism of collective entitative
(i.e. physical) waves with the psychic waves of the (occupant) Unit Mind; be
it a case of an atom or an advanced human being.
Once the unit mind (i.e. the subjective counterpart) of a creature has
deserted the physical body, from that moment onwards the material contents
therein remain under control of the Cosmic Mind, yet the localized
controlling faculty (collective mind) still keeps control of respective
organs and glands for a while as per its capability even in the absence of
any support from the now missing endoplasmic coverage of the unit mind of
the creature. That is why there is a time limit for an organ to be
transplanted in another body.
When we slow down the metabolic needs and related functions of the separated
organs or any fraction of corpora, for example by putting them in
hibernation for a while (by freezing etc.), it becomes very easy for the
prevailing controlling faculty i.e. the collective mind, to manage the bare
minimal task of maintaining parallelism with existential physical entitative
wave. It has to be just present there, as a witnessing entity.
The bio- sciences today have studied, examined and discovered the
characteristic peculiarities viz. the varying frozen life span etc. etc. of
each separate organ, glands, hormones, enzymes, various cells and tissues,
and the like. Accordingly, under such limitations the organs are
successfully being transplanted to another corpora of matching metabolic
base; and brought to a functional state again. Here, soon as the metabolic
energy needs of the transplanted organ are supplied by the new body (where
it has now been planted); the collective mind of the gland/ organ finds it
easy to regain its controlling role in that structure. In other words the
organs become live again. And if it stabilizes, we have a successful
The Vayus are affected adversely if an organ is removed from a living
physical structure and thus the mind feels weak but it re-adjusts gradually
with the changed reality. If such organs are directly related to the
functioning of any particular Vayu, it should become difficult to manage and
may cause death. In case of accidental death it may surely cause some
confusing situation for the departing unit mind to collect all Vayus back.
It does not collect all unit minds back from each cell of the body
scattered/strewn like that. The departing mind just needs the final sum-up
of all vayus. It is so because the Vayus and not the unit minds of
individual cells (neither the collective mind of Indriyas) control the unit
mind. Mind not being any physical object should have no difficulty finding
its identity as a unit entity even upon fatal accident where body is strewn
into pieces. Mind is abstract. It has a support of consciousness behind it.
Most part of the unit mind except for Citta, remains and functions
independent of what ever the state of the body. A physically handicapped
person does not have any less of dreams / tastes/ desires, all of which of
course depend, in totality, on the psychic exposure and training.
Each cell has a mind. True and no doubt, even every atom has a mind in
sleeping (inertia) state. But they do not directly participate in the making
of the unit human mind. Human mind is made of Tanmatras and microvita of
psychic and supra-psychic types, and not of organs either. Cellular minds
operate and maintain the life of individual cells alone, although they have
some matching rhythm to adjust with Unit human mind due to their continued
association together. At the time of death this association (i.e. the
endoplasmic coverage) is withdrawn from individual cellular minds, which
have undergone continuous evolutionary (metazoic ectoplasmic) changes during
Now to the inquiry of whether the unit mind of a person who died in fatal
accident where the body is strewn into pieces impossible of being collected,
has to wander around for collecting the bits of pieces of its own-self !?
The same physical ectoplasm is not going to be required to form cells of the
next physical body that the departed mind is supposed to occupy, so it is
not required of the departing mind to wait and collect all the cellular
ectoplasmic and/or collective minds from all cells and organs into its so
called main stream at the time of departure.
The entire affair of handling of the departed Unit Mind remains totally
under the control of the Cosmic entity. The Unit Mind is responsible and
accountable only for what kind of resultant reactive momenta (Karma) it
carries at the time of departure from its physical body. And thus depending
on the kind of momenta the fatal accident has left on the subconscious
psychic plate of the departing mind, there may or may not be deformations in
the development of the new body that it is getting next. It is so because
the Samskaras (i.e. Karma) form our extra cerebral memories affecting the
growth and characteristics of our physical body.
Finally, it is a positive advancement, rather a monumental achievement that
our Bio-sciences have succeeded in educating the populace about the
universality and scientific (manipulative) prospects of our physical body,
which hither to remained a matter of dogmatic consideration in all cultures.
Besides, other sublime inputs from the rational sciences have given
infusions of fearlessness in the masses for its acceptance. It has relieved
humanity from suffering under the shrouding dogmatic beliefs on this count.
