ly discouraged and checked. That will be our course of
action. We have to create new literature, new books,
new music, new songs… We have to chalk out a programme and act accordingly.

Due to our folly or undeveloped thinking, we could
not give proper solutions to the problems of material
existence. Now our planet is just like a hidden treasure. We have to utilize this hidden treasure for the
maintenance and sustenance of all the living beings of
this universe.
This earth of ours is passing through a critical juncture. The solution is of immediate necessity. It brooks
no delay. That is why our PROUT is to be propagated
throughout this universe, especially on this planet of
ours. You should chalk out programmes for its materialization and implementation within a short period.

Innocent human beings are at the mercy of devouring
demons. The animals are also at the mercy of human
demons. Even the plants are at the mercy of human
demons. These demons destroy forests without planting new ones and thus create new deserts. There is
folly in their thinking as well as their economics. 300
years ago there was no desert in South America; 150
years ago there was no desert in India. Innocent human beings are at the mercy of human demons. We
must solve this problem. We must solve this problem
through PROUT, Neohumanism, microvita, art, literature, songs, music and spiritual sádhaná. This is the
panacea to solve all these problems.

You know, economic life, political life and social life
are not everything for living beings and human beings. They have also got a mental world and a spiritual
world. For development and progress in the mental
and spiritual worlds, our Neohumanistic ideology is
to be propagated everywhere. Spiritual life controls all
other arenas of human life.
The physical body is made of the quinquelemental factors. For this, quinquelemental science is to be applied
to cure certain ailments associated with the physical
body. To remove physico-psychic ailments, bio-science is to be developed utilizing the new theory of microvita. Microvita may function as positive or negative
physico-microvita. Spiritual microvita should also be
utilized. Microvita theory should be properly utilized.
There is also cultural life. Tendencies are of either a
degenerating or an exalting nature, that is, they are either of a depraving or an elevating nature. We should
encourage the elevating tendencies and discourage
the depraving ones. In certain parts of this world, depraving tendencies such as pornography exist. Simply
protesting will not stop these things: we will have to
do something positive to check it. Such positive action
will create a new stir in the human mind. Pornography and other depraving tendencies will be complete-

There may be a shortage of petroleum but elements for
creating petroleum are available in the world. We will
be able to produce synthetic petroleum.
What we want is the rule of rationality. Human society is one and indivisible. Apparently there is heterogeneity but in essence there is homogeneity. For
instance, in the Middle East there are Muslims, Jews,
Christians, Semites and Blacks. But they all belong to
the same supreme race – they are all the progeny of
the Supreme Progenitor. This is what the spiritual philosophy of Ananda Marga says. Only due to dogmas,
people think in terms of heterogeneity. There is only
one ideology in the world which is not only all-embracing but also all-pervading.
Both the problems and their solutions have been
pointed out. Now it is our bounden duty to carry this
message to all nooks and corners of this world. The
wind is blowing in our favour. We should carry the
message to each and every particle of marrow of this
living world.

Microvitum, the Mysterious Emanation of Cosmic Factor
By Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar

The discourse is on “Microvitum, the Mysterious Emanation of Cosmic Factor.” It is one human characteristic that whatever we do not know, in order to conceal
our limitations or hide our imperfections, we either say
that it is non-existent, or in a more intelligent style, we
will say it is abstract. In this universe. of ours, whatever
comes within the scope of our senses or within the periphery of our perception, we say, “It is,” and whatever
is beyond the arena of the senses or the jurisdiction of
perception, we cannot say anything. Hence, our world
functions within the limitations of our senses and perceptions. We know in the realm of cosmic extrovert,
in the first phase -- that is, in the phase of extrovert
-- ‘subtle’ is transmuted into ‘crude’, and in the returning phase of introvert, ‘crude’ is metamorphosed into
‘subtle’. In this progress, rather in this semicircular approach, there may be subtler objects in the scope of
matter -- many objects subtler than electrons or protons, neutrons or positrons -- but we find no alternative but to say that they are either electron or proton
or positron or neutron. And similarly, in the psychic
sphere there may be entities subtler than ectoplasm or
its extra-psychic coverage, endoplasm.

Now, these microvita are not of the same density or the
same subtlety. Some of them come within the range of
a highly developed microscope; and some of them may
not come within the range of a microscope, but by their
actional expression or through their actional faculty or
as a result of their actional vibrations, they may come
within the scope of our perception. They are of subtle
order. There may be still more subtle forms of microvita which may not come directly within the scope of our
perception but may come within the scope of a special
type of perception which is actually the reflection of
conception within the range of perception in a limited

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 5

So these microvita may be broadly divided into three
categories -- first, those coming within the scope of
a microscope; secondly, those not coming within the
scope of perception but coming within the scope of
perception as a result of their expression, as a result of
their actional vibration; and thirdly, those not coming
within the scope of common perception but coming
within the scope of a special type of perception which
is actually the reflection of conception within the periphery of perception. Such perception -- that special

through sound. The so-called virus of a diseased person moves through his or her sound. They may move
through tactuality. They may move through forms or

spreads through the smell of the disease, and in the case
of subtler microvita, they may move through ideas. A
particular idea may get accelerated and spread in a particular planet with the help of a few conceptually developed minds. That is, a great man with a great conceptually developed mind may spread his ideas with the
help of these microvita throughout that planet, or even
throughout this universe in different celestial bodies.
Now, what is the root cause of this universe? Which is
the starting point of life or vitality? These microvita are
the carriers of life in different stars, planets and satellites -- not carbon atoms or carbon molecules. These
living creatures with their mysterious movement create minds and bodies, living bodies in different celestial bodies, and they also destroy minds and physical
bodies, or developed or undeveloped corpor, in any
corner of this universe. So the root cause of life is not
the unicellular protozoa or unit protoplasmic cell, but
this unit microvitum.

otherwise many problems in modern society will not
be solved in a nice way. As Prama’ (equilibrium and
equipoise) is an essentiality in the field of intellectuality or intellectual pursuit, similarly in the higher intellectual realm research work on these microvita is extremely necessary. Here we should again remember the
fact that these microvita are creations in the internal
phase, rather in the returning phase of cosmic expression. We are human beings with developed intellect.
I think, rather I hope, rather I am sure that the day
is sure to come when human beings will have proper
control over these microvita.
In ancient times, regarding the singular or collective
structures of these microvita, the ancient Rs’is or sages
said that they are of seven types, of seven species, and
gave them the names: yaks’a, gandharva, vidya’dhara,

Mobility and Movement of Microvita by Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar
The topic of today’s discourse is “Mobility and Movement of Microvita.” As you know, everything in this
universe moves. Speed is not only the essence of life,
speed represents existence; that is, there is speed, there
is movement wherever there is the existential faculty –
both animate and inanimate entities are to move. The
position of microvita is just on the silver lining of animate and inanimate. Microvita also move and they recognize no inter-planetary, no inter-spatial, no celestial

hindrance, impediment or barrier. They move. How do
they move? Each and every movement of the universe
is of systaltic order. It is not just like a straight line, it
is to some extent angular, of angular nature; and where
the speed is less – that is, the speed is not the dominating factor – it is a bit circular. Where it is circular in
Samskrta it is called “kalá” and “kástá”. Otherwise it is
angular. The greater the speed, the less will be the angle
created by it.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 6

Microvita move; they recognize no impediment, no
barrier, physical or supra-physical; but as their media
are of inferential nature, so the movement has something to do with the physical world. As I have clearly
told you last year, microvita are of both positive and
negative character; those which are of negative character move in the range of physicality and touch the
arena of the psychic world, but they cannot cross the
threshold of the psychic world. This is the case with
negative microvita. Positive microvita move freely in
the physical and psychic worlds, and touch the border
of the spiritual world, but cannot cross the threshold
of the spiritual world. So for elevation or acceleration,
or rather accelerated movement in the spiritual world,
microvita may help one indirectly, but direct help in
the spiritual world comes from the great grace of the
In the physical world, when negative microvita move,
they move in systaltic order, creating angles, and where
the speed is much accelerated, the angles are smaller,
less in degrees. In their movement they touch all the
static items of the physical world, or in the case of living beings, the static portions of the physical body, and
these negative microvita maintain a sort of adjustment
with the staticity of this physical world and also of the
unit physical framework. But where one angle is in the
realm of staticity, what will be the next angle? Certainly
it should be in the realm of mutativity. It tries to maintain a particular type of adjustment with the mutative
world, and as a result of the angle created by negative
microvita in the mutative world or in the mutative portion of any structure, that mutative entity is to undergo
a certain metamorphosis. Its arena decreases, its density increases, and as a result it is slowly transmuted
into staticity, and the realm of the neighbouring staticity increases. Staticity in its own realm increases both
in area and density. The mutative portion also undergoes certain changes and metamorphoses, as a result of
which the sentienthood of the sentient portions of the
physical world is also changed. That is why one should
try to be pure not only in body but in mind also, because a mind engaged in degenerating thought invites
negative microvita. Good company, good books, good
literature, good songs, kiirtanas (devotional chanting) elevate the mind and the mind becomes sanctified. That is why negative microvita do not get much
scope to touch the mutative and sentient portions of

the structure.
So we see that in the case of negative microvita, not
only is the static portion strengthened, but the mutative portion becomes weak and the sentient portion
also becomes weak. In the case of the movement of
negative microvita, the movement is always of systaltic
or angular nature and never of circular nature. In the
case of positive microvita, you know positive microvita
can move freely in the physical world or in any physical
structure, and they can move freely in psychic structures also, but they cannot cross the arena, the threshold, of the sentient world. In their movement in the
physical structure or in the external physical world, the
movement is certainly of angular character, but in the
psychic world it is a bit of circular nature. If the mind
remains engaged in elevating thoughts, that circular
movement is converted into angular movement, that
is, the kalá and kástá become angular; and the positive
microvita do not touch the static portion of any structure – they create angles in the sentient portion also as
a result of which the neighbouring mutative portion is
also influenced; and as a result the static portion also
loses its staticity to some extent.
So we find that positive microvitum sanctifies the
physical body, sanctifies the psychic body and helps
in spiritual elevation, not only of the human body but
also of any living body; and it helps in the thought of
Parama Puruśa, it helps the Prati-saincara portion of
Parama Puruśa’s thought or conation in creating a better world. We should always try to invite positive microvita for our all-around and integrated development,
not merely of a particular human body or a particular
living body, but for the all-around development of all
existences; that is, all existential faculties are to be benefited by this positive microvitum. Inanimate objects
will become animate, carbon atoms sleeping in an inanimate body will get life, will get the stir of vitality
in them, and that vitality is slowly to be transmuted
into a gigantic living structure like a human being. You
should remember that here we are to invite positive
microvita for our all-around progress and all-around
elevation, and we are to denounce the advancement
of negative microvita because it is detrimental to the
cause of a sweet and beautiful universe.

Matter and Abstract by Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar
The subject of today’s discourse is “Matter and Abstract.” Some intellectuals are of the opinion that matter is bottled-up energy. No, matter is not bottled-up
energy. The characteristics and different wonts and
specialties of energy are quite different from those of
matter. The mass of matter has got nothing to do with

there is maximum solidity, somewhere maximum dilution, and these phases of dilutions and solidities vary
in huge number. So matter is not bottled-up energy.
Chlorophyll and sun rays are not the same thing. Sun

energy and so many energies known and unknown to
the world. They are interchangeable and inter-transmutable. But the position of matter is not such.

motor organs are matter, pure matter. But the position
of energy and microvita is on this silver line of demarcation between matter and abstract. Energy generally
comes within the range of perception, but not always.
Energy in its subtle form does not come within the
range of perception. Subtle microvita also do not come
within the range of perception, but they come within
the range of conception.
You know, both microvita and energy are active in different planes of expressions, that is, in different physical or psycho- spiritual planes of the unit or collective
propensities, and in the physical planes of inferences.
But microvita are more active in the physico-psychospiritual strata, and energy is more active in the physical planes of inferences.

Regarding the strength or influence of energy and microvita, this much can be said – energy is stronger in
the physical planes of inferences than in the physicopsycho-spiritual planes of the unit and collective propensities. And microvita are stronger in the physicopsycho-spiritual realm of the unit mind.

fundamental difference between energy and microvita. movement or into the Spiritual Entity.
The effect of energy on different material bodies comes
within the periphery of human knowledge if the wavelength is of medium standard – not extremely long or
not extremely short. But the effect of microvita is to be
felt – it cannot be expressed through language, it cannot be shown in the physical level. You must not try to
acquire that occult power, but sometimes, by the grace
of Parama Puruśa, it appears automatically.
Microvita, like energy, pass through various planes of
inferences, and also through various planes of propensities. In the inference of say touch, microvita increase
the temperature in the external sphere and decreases
it in the internal sphere. In the case of odour, they decrease the temperature in the external sphere and increase the same in the internal sphere. But generally,
regarding other inferences, such as sound and others,
sometimes they may increase externally and sometimes they may decrease externally, according to the
medium through which those microvita pass.

Similarly, a microvitum, although it is initially the
“doer” portion of the cosmic arena, if it passes through
the expressed world of “done”, then it may create something good or something bad in the universe. If the
movement is from a subtler plane to a cruder plane, it
deteriorates or depraves the human mind or the standard of human conduct. But if the movement is towards a subtler plane, towards the subtler inferences
of cosmic light, then it helps human beings, it helps
spiritual aspirants, to attain the goal.
Microvita, when passing through different planes of
inferences and also planes of propensities, can not
only change the bodily temperature or temperatures
of the mass, they can also create a radical change in
the psychic wave, a change in wavelengths, a change in
hormone secretion, and metamorphosis and transmutation in the mass and movement of hormones. This
should also be carefully remembered and noted.
It is the duty of the intellectuals of the world to continue doing research work regarding the movements
of energy and of microvita when passing through the
“done” world of the cosmic or individual propensities,
or through the “known” world of cosmic inferences, or
passing through both types of planes; and also regarding the movement of energy passing through the plane
of the “known” or the “knowing” world – the world
of the “known” counterpart of the cosmos – and also
through the world of individual propensities and different planes of individual inferences.

Now, energy is inter-transmutable and interchangeable, but matter is not inter-transmutable or interchangeable. It undergoes metamorphosis, metamorphosis once, but not always; that is, one way but not
vice versa. In the cosmic arena, in the cosmic stratum,
if we try to dissociate what we feel or what we conceive
or what we perceive into the “knower” and “known”
portions, the cosmos in the physical level is the “doing” entity in the physical level and is microvita; and
the “done” portion is the world of physicality. And the
“knowing” faculty in the cosmic level is the supreme
cause or the subtlest form of energy, and the “known” I would like intellectuals in the future to conduct exportion or the “known” counterpart is the psychic and periments in their external physical laboratories and

then it creates different psychic faculties, different psychic worlds. And if after passing through the Cosmic

Cult, Inference and Propensity by Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar
The subject of today’s discourse is “Cult, Inference and
Propensity.” The path that leads or goads the aspirant
unto Parama Puruśa is “cult” in the true spirit of the
term. Where the goal is something finite, where the
pabulum is something limited, the path and the movement cannot be treated as cult.
Spiritual practice is based on cult: adherence to the
doctrine of cult is started and practised in the primordial phase by the doer “I” of all living beings. The doer
“I” keeps on thinking, “I am working, I am eating, I
am seeing, I do not know anything, I know so many
In living beings other than humans, the doer “I” is not
properly expressed, and that is why they cannot establish their individual identity or do spiritual practice. In
certain animals like dogs and monkeys, the doer “I” is
a bit more expressed or developed than in other creatures. That is why in the future they may also be in a
position to do this practice.

When the doer “I” of the aspirant is goaded towards
the Supreme Entity, it uses the vital energy acquired
through different quinquelemental factors, passing
through different planes of inferences, and through
different propensities of the human mind, without
suppressing those propensities of the mind. The question of suppression, repression and oppression does
not arise in the realm of spiritual cult. You are simply
to maintain equilibrium and equipoise – that is, you
are to move maintaining proper parallelism with the
fundamental propensities of the human mind. So spiritual practice is performed by the doer “I” with the help
of energy, of so many energies which are converted
into vital energy when they pass through the different
planes of inferences.
It is not proper to think that this movement, this spiritual advancement, is something purely of individual

This spiritual cult is the only cult; others are not cult,
they are mere dogma. If the cult is proper – if it is cult in
the true spirit of the term – it creates a sort of subtlety
in one’s mental flow. Under such circumstances, we receive necessary help from positive microvita. This help
that we receive by dint of our spiritual practices is composed of eight occult powers. These powers are known
as “occult” because they are acquired through cult.

entity.” One may understand anything by entering into
each and every physical particle and becoming one
with the different waves of expression and emanation,
by dancing with the wavelengths of objects or ideas.
Unless and until one’s very psychic existence is converted into a point, one cannot move or dance according to the wavelengths of objects or ideas. This occult
power acquired through positive microvita is called
Laghimá makes the mind light, free from the bondages
of so many liabilities. This carefree mind, freed from
the fetters of materialistic bondages, can understand
and think properly. So by dint of this occult power, one
may understand any idea, subtle or crude, in the abstract realm.
Unless you understand how much pain and sorrow is
accumulated in others’ minds, how many tears well up
in their eyes, you cannot alleviate their sorrows and
sufferings. Through laghimá, you can acquire this particular power to study others’ minds.
The third one is mahimá or expansion of mind. With
the help of positive microvita, mind can be expanded.
The radius of the mind may cover the entire universe,
and we may have ideas about different subjects even
without reading books and literature. And in this way,
too, we may feel our oneness with the varied entities
of this universe – unity in variety, unity in diversity.
By associating our benevolent thoughts with each and
every entity, we will contribute to universal progress
and prosperity.
Iishitva enables the spiritual aspirant to guide other
minds who suffer from different psychic ailments. So
many people in this world are crying in pain and agony. So many miseries and afflictions have paralysed
human beings physically and mentally. In leading this
afflicted humanity to their physical progress and psychic well-being, this occult power of iishitva will help
you tremendously. It can be achieved through positive
microvita which is in turn acquired through the regular practice of cult. By sitting idle and crying constantly
one cannot achieve this.

people goaded by defective ideas, unto the path of supreme greatness. If people are to be guided towards
their definite progress, they will first have to be brought
under one’s control. If such people work haphazardly
and do not follow the right path, they cannot be expected to reach the state of welfare. So, if you really
want to help people, you will have to bring them under
control and then direct them along the right path to
their goal. This occult power can be achieved through
positive microvita.
Prakámya or the right mode of thinking aimed at promoting universal welfare, brings light to the entire universe. Through this occult power, spiritual aspirants
acquire what is needed to serve the entire world.
Prápti means helping oneself and helping the souls
of so many people to acquire and be benefited by the
grace of the supreme.
And the eighth one is antaryámitva – to be able to enter within the ectoplasmic or endoplasmic structures
of others, and thereby to know the pains and pleasures,
the hopes, aspirations and longings of others to guide
them properly. It is somewhat like the transmigration
of souls. Regarding this eighth occult power, spiritual
cult alone will not suffice – it requires the special grace
of Parama Puruśa.
There is yet another occult power – the power of omniscience, to be all-knowing. This power of omniscience
cannot be achieved only through the practice of cult,
nor with the help of positive microvita – one must
reach the height of devotion and achieve the grace
of the supreme. Otherwise, even if people dash their
heads against a wall, they still cannot acquire omniscience with the help of positive microvita.
And above all occult powers is the supreme knowledge
– ensconcement in Parama Puruśa. This is not only a
sort of omniscience, rather it elevates the aspirant to
be one with the supreme cognitive faculty. Of course,
those who are already endowed with devotion will automatically acquire this power.

Regarding prema or selfless love, it is said:

While practising spiritual cult, it should be remembered that spiritual aspirants must not practise in order to acquire these occult powers. The goal of spiritual
practice is to realize the Supreme Entity. To search for
any other thing is wrong. Occult powers are just like

So the final word in the realm of spirituality is the supreme grace of Parama Puruśa. Intelligent people will

Microvita and Cosmology by Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar
In human beings and other animals, some propensity
or other is either activated or slowed down by the impact of different inferences at various stages. Though
this is not an easy subject, the impact that the inferences have at various stages on the body, mind, propensities, mass, hormones, etc. must be studied. We
have to study the impact of inferences on the human
body, the human mind and human psycho-spirituality.
The inferences of sound, touch, form, taste and smell
all operate on different planes and their effects are
also different. “Doer I” or Krta Puruśa is the concentrated form of positive and negative microvita in the
universal arena, maintaining equilibrium – functioning in the arena of the universe. Positive microvita are
utilized for physico-psycho-spiritual practice. Energy
is “knower I” or Jinana Puruśa, plus and minus the microvita passing through the universe. Sádhaná is not
possible without taking proper food because the vital
energy one derives from food is a transformed form
of other energies. Only positive and negative microvita
will not do – vital energy is also required.
Microvita come from outer space, from the extended
universe and the universal planes, through sound and
other inferences. Sound and other inferences have various planes, stages and phases. Microvita pass through
the different phases of these inferences. Positive microvita are concerned with energy or the psychic realm
and negative microvita are concerned with the physical
body because the physical body contains inferences,
that is, matter. Matter is clearly associated with inferences – the original planes of inferences or the reflected or refracted planes of inferences. For example, mind
receives the odour of a rose flower, but in the microcosmic plane of odour. This odour encourages certain
propensities and discourages others. The mind certainly runs towards propensities, but one cannot achieve
success by suppressing the propensities because more
energy will be consumed in this effort. One has to divert the propensities by learning the art of pratyáhára.

stratum. Positive microvita equal negative microvita –
that is, the sum total of positive microvita equals the
sum total of negative microvita. This is so in the entire
macrocosm and in individual microcosmic structures.
If there is over-utilization of positive microvita during
psychic and psycho-spiritual practices, then there will
be a shortage of positive microvita for balancing the
negative microvita in the physical and physico-psychic
strata, because the sum total of positive and negative
microvita must balance each other. Thus, human beings should utilize their strength in all the strata. In the
physical strata, utilize the immense power of negative
microvita, otherwise the surplus of the negative microvita will become very strong due to accumulation.
Good people should not go to the Himalayan caves.
Rather, remaining in society, they should serve the society in the physical and physico-psychic strata with
the help of negative microvita, and in the psychic and
psycho-spiritual strata with the help of positive microvita. If good people neglect the use of negative microvita in the physical stratum, catastrophes are sure to

This is a new line of thinking – a new philosophical approach. Here “knower I” or “doer I” are not necessarily the mahat, aham or citta of philosophy. It is a new

There should not be negative use of negative microvita
and there must not be negative use of positive microvita. You should always be positive. In the physical sciences, there are immense possibilities for the positive
use of negative microvita. Positive and negative microvita are both necessary for balance. Due to the excessive use of positive microvita, it will become difficult
to control and balance the negative microvita in the
physical and physico-psychic strata because there will
be a shortage of positive microvita. You must not run
after occult powers.
In communist and capitalist countries, there is plenty of unutilized positive microvita because of the excessive use of negative microvita in the physical and

By splitting up the atom immense energy is released.
This is due to the fact that the energy which is packaged up in matter comes out. To claim that energy

the destruction of the container, the immense released

directions in search of some or other material shelter.
Finally, it finds a way in some country, in some human

Microvita and Other Spaces: Deepening Research through Intuitional Practice
By Marcus Bussey University of the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Editor’s note: Below article is an extract from a journal paper by Dr. Marcus Bussey for Journal of Futures
The original paper (
S02.pdf) includes, besides the introduction and conclusion, the following sections:
Definitions, Microvita as Patterned Information, Transcendental Empiricism and Transformative Knowledge.
The evolution of the scientific process and of empiricism (discussed by Bussey in the latter two sections),
are quintessential in the context of microvita, however
because of limited space we have selected the first two
sections, which are a creative exploration into the nature of the microvita phenomena and its implications.

“Sense-Making thrusts itself between chaos and order, structure and person, facts and illusions, external
worlds and inner, universals and particulars. SenseMaking posits reality as ordered in part, chaotic in
part, evolving in part” (1999b, p.730)
Tantra largely agrees with this reading, thus Sarkar approaches reality as multiple:
“the real is physical, mental and spiritual” (Inayatullah,
2002, p.8). For Sarkar the focus is on transformative
possibilities within context as revealed by the ontological trajectory of consciousness across the materialmental-spiritual domains of human existence. In Tantric discourse it is consciousness not humanity that
holds centre stage. Information, from this perspective
moves across a spectrum that includes everything from
passive data to transformative memes. Tantra has been
popularly associated in the West with exotic and often
sexual practices (Bjonnes, 2010). It is however much
more than this derivative form and offers an inclusive
vision of reality that accounts for individual and collective evolution as an ongoing expression of consciousness in dialogue within its multiple forms (Bussey,
1998, 2006). This dialogue is often fraught with struggle
and paradox yet informs both individual and collective expression with a sense of depth and meaning that
empowers individuals and collectivities with a sense of
purpose and supplies conceptual tools and also physical and spiritual practices to engage more fully with the

Ghista challenge this paradigm and argue that mind
and consciousness are much more than epiphenomenon of the physical world (1995a, p.335, 1995b). The
vibrational quality of matter points towards nascent
consciousness that require of the observer subtler
modes of consciousness in order to perceive it. Thus we
find scientists acknowledging that much of this work
requires intuitive reasoning based not on direct material evidence but on the effects of these propositions
(Kaku, 2005; Randall, 2006; Talbot, 1996).
Similarly Sarkar argued that microvita could only be
recognised by highly developed intuitional minds
who account for such subtle phenomena via their effects (Sarkar, 1991). He advocated meditation to develop intuitive power and the sensibility required to
observe consciousness at work in matter. Thus he suggests microvita as a form of cosmic intelligence at work
throughout the entire universe. As Gautier notes:

viral in nature (and behave so); the subtlest are ideas
(and act as such)
- Vibrational not concrete (perhaps like crystals or
Now this last point indicates that microvita are self
organizing. Consciousness in Tantra is understood as
pattern that oscillates at a frequency and reflects levels
of complexity (Sarkar, 1993). Microvita move across
these levels and become more complex and more subtle, or less complex and less subtle according to context. They attract consciousness and on each encounter
become something new. Thus microvita can be understood as fluid, hybrid, perhaps even fractal. They seek
order amidst disequilibrium but order is always relative rather than absolute (Bussey, 2011 Forthcoming).
Hence Towsey and Ghista argue the dynamic of instability within order (entropy) is such that evolution from
matter to consciousness relates to increasingly complex systems in which we move from self-organisation
to self-realisation with its concomitant self-awareness.
This implies the ever present possibility of consciousness in all matter and suggests a theoretical basis for
microvita within the physical sciences (1995a, p.343).

“Microvita, as mediators of cosmic intelligence, are responsible for the creation and evolution of other living
beings in the universe, and the formation of the chemical elements as well. Microvita move unbarred through
the physical universe, and some can travel through the Microvita as Patterned Information

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 17

Microvita allows for a dynamic relationship with
meaning making and the way information is understood within context. All signals within the infosphere
are microvital in nature. The mind simply filters, selects and privileges according to a mix of shared cultural and unique subjective criteria. In all this habit
and conditioning are not to be underestimated.
Because microvita theory accounts for both the ‘white
noise’ of background context, the data from which information emerges, as well as the role of consciousness in the development and maintenance of context,
the questions and concerns shift towards holistic and
metaphysical issues pertaining to order, chaos, hybridity, and the challenge the spiritual poses to normative assumptions about the real and how information
might function in it. Part of this shift is in the reconceptualization of the individual – or more specifically
the reconceptualization of parts in relation to wholes.
The theory suggests that parts only exist because of
their relationship to wholes. Now there are contexts in
which parts and wholes behave according to specific
rules: the universe is governed by the rules of physics
and these rules are played out via its constituent parts;
our planet is constituted by a range of spheres (biosphere, hydrosphere, infosphere, etc) and these all apply rules and meaning to the constituent parts; a nation
is organized around laws and customs and its citizens
draw meaning and identity from these; an institution
too is a composite of functions and a mores or ethos
and meaning and purpose are drawn from these.

In such contexts information can be highly influential in bringing about change as the phenomena of
wikileaks illustrates. This is because it is no longer simply an epiphenomenon of context but a charged and
vibrationally alive unit of energy consciousness.
No longer is it neutral or passive. Context itself and the
dynamic interactivity of the minds in situ bring a range
of readings to bear. Sarkar (Sarkar, 1991, p.43) points
out that at some point in the future we will be able to
read microvita in such a way that it can be measured.
Thus a unit of information may be charged in some
way we are yet unable to read. Yet it can be understood
by its effects. For example the name Allah might bring
anxiety to a resident of New York and elation to a resident of Mecca. The context, of course, determines the
reading but the use of the word – the intent links up
and releases specific vibrational responses that emerge
out of the microvital field.

The question of intent indicates that consciousness is
always implicit in information and its uses and abuses.
The purpose of any inquiry into information at a spiritual level suggests that we need to turn our attention to
the deeper issue of consciousness as interlocutor with
context (Rowley, 1998). Spirituality is a way of understanding Being that reaches beyond the forms of the
material expression of the Universe to incorporate atemporal, ideative and immutable conditions. Yet it acknowledges the physical grounding for all such considerations and demands of us that we engage in deepened
critique – what Giri (2006, p.5) calls ‘spiritual criticism’.

wisdom (integrative Being that works with metaphor
and causal mythic process). Such a break down correlates well with Causal Layered Analysis (CLA), the
research approach developed by Inayatullah (2004),
and suggests that tools are already emerging for thinking about the relationship between consciousness and
context. Such tools will become even more effective
when we better understand microvita’s relationship to
engaged consciousness, memes and intuitive inquiry.
Those of us who have worked as facilitators are aware
of how important it is to channel the collective energy
of a group toward creative, inclusive and open ended
explorations of consciousness. Such work is a form of
social and transformative pedagogy that involves microvita, as engaged consciousness, in opening the habituated consciousness of a group up to innovation and
the reimagining of the world of ‘business as usual’. Such
learning contexts can be described as forms of Causal
Layered Pedagogy (CLP) and again demonstrate the
possibilities from thinking about the patterning of consciousness as it flows through a group (Bussey, 2009a).
The role of mind, consciousness and the facilitator as
the one who holds the space cannot be underestimated. So it can be argued that Microvita, as modes of conscious organisation, respond to consciousness and the
reverse also holds.

nature of context.
Deleuze (1994) establishes the philosophical foundations for such an epistemological shift by proposing a
transcendental empiricism.

Microvita offers researchers wider access to information about our world, how we make sense of it. It allows
intuition to become part of inquiry, opening up new
spaces for us to explore the role of consciousness in our
world thus expanding our thinking about what might
constitute a valid research method. As we develop the
field of microvita research and its terms of reference
we are creating a set of tools that allow for peer review
and a subtle rigor. Introducing spirituality and spiritual practice into this work is a major step forward yet
it is problematic because of course it is hard to assess.
Again we need to look to the effects of this form of research on the context of the research and the forging
of a reliable epistemic domain. Spiritual science, to use
Sarkar’s (1993) term, needs to be validated according
to the rules of empirical inquiry.
This requires new categories and terms of reference.
This might fall under the banner of a transcendental
empiricism in which transperception becomes a tool
for deepened inquiry into the nature of consciousness

Recent Advances in Microvita Quantum Theory by Turiiya Deva
Each of us have wondered how the rather philosophical terms that Shrii Sarkar uses to describe the basic constituents of matter, relate to the real world as described by current physical scientists. We struggle to comprehend
philosophical sounding terms like five fundamental factors, tanmátras, inferences etc and see how they compare
to physicists terms like gluons, fermions, quarks, flavors and gauge force carriers.
When we only take Shrii Sarkar’s physical description of matter to the atom/molecule level, we can utilize passages like “In order to ascertain the category of the physical elements an object belongs to, we will have to base
our findings on the crudest of the tanmátras the particular object carries.” (from Ananda Sutram 2nd Chapter).
But tanmátras are sense-oriented; being those microscopic reflections of the five fundamental factors that reflect
off the basic atoms. If and when the quantity of those microscopic tanma’tric reflections is great enough (like
for example when we see the color green) only then will are we able to determine the classification of the atom.
Just knowing that the atom contains the basic requirements of five fundamental factors, microvita, energy with
structure and witness, identified by tanmátras… is not enough. Quantum microvita theory must reach beyond
the level of the atom.
Some of the characteristics that Shrii Sarkar gives to microvita in its smallest microvitum type of description is
that it is point-like in size and living. In other words it is so small that it practically has no mass, but is a source of
life. A lot of quantum particles can be described as have practically no mass like the photon, gluon, higgs boson
and many more. But no physicist will describe them as life giving. We need to look at microvita completely differently from only size.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 21

To reach into the basic constitutes of microvita quantum theory, we must understand how microvita relates
to the basic quantum particles that compose matter.
Currently that appears to be in relation to how Shrii
Sarkar describes matter as having “mass and wonts”.
Do quarks and bosons have wonts? Do quantum particles and other physical rocks have wonts? Interestingly enough, they do. Only modern quantum physicists
haven’t recognized them, yet.
If we look up the usage of wonts in a typical thesaurus/
dictionary it will indicate the normal materialistic usage of characteristic. Shrii Sarkar did not typically use
materialistic definitions. Here Shrii Sarkar shows us in
an English discourse that matter has both characteristics and wonts. “The characteristics and different wonts
and specialties of energy are quite different from those
of matter.” (from Matter and Abstract discourse). If we
try to match an English usage that would fit His more
psychological descriptions, the phrase characteristic
desires would more aptly apply.

A quantum microvitum particle is a self-programmable algorithm a template (in the sense RNA/DNA is a
biological template) that actually changes as it creates

microvita have intelligence, but that can be very simple
in terms of a self-programmable algorithm like a template that modifies along certain parameters. Microvita
doesn’t “take on” outside physical characteristics…it
groups together and creates those physical characteristics that we sense as matter.

Let us look at some of the basic combination of quantum characteristics that make up ordinary matter.

The New Concept of Microvita by Richard Gauthier
I wrote the following article about 15 years ago while I
was an orange-robed yogic monk teaching in different
countries in Europe. The concept of microvita was new
then and is still new now. The article is not a critical
analysis – that can come after the ideas themselves are
set out. This article is a paraphrase/summary of the
book “Microvitum in a Nutshell”, a collection of talks
introducing the subject of microvita by P. R. Sarkar,
given in late 1980’s. Yogic science is very practical,
and some of the ideas about microvita could find relevance in the practical training of non-local psychological practices such as remote viewing, which could
perhaps be mediated by the action of microvita in the
mind and in the world.
One goal of science is to find the underlying unity in
apparently very different fields of experience. For example, the physical theory of electromagnetism unifies
the scientific understanding of electricity, magnetism
and light. The quantum theory unifies the fields of
physics and chemistry. The understanding of DNA and
genetics unifies the different areas of biology.
A second goal of science is to extend the range of scientific and practical knowledge, based on the unifying
theories of science. Many new practical benefits to humanity have resulted from this aspect of science.
Now an entity has been described which has the potential to create even greater unity among the physical, biological and even social sciences. It may also give
rise to much new practical knowledge and help solve
many of the problems facing humanity today. This new
concept is related to the fundamental nature of life. It
is called microvitum, or in plural microvita. The concept was first introduced in December 1986 by P.R.
Sarkar in a discourse called “Microvitum--The Mysterious Emanation of Cosmic Factor.” This article summarizes some of the main ideas about microvita given
by Sarkar.

Microvita are living entities that come within the scope
of both physical and psychic expressions. Physically,
they are smaller or subtler than atoms or electrons. In
the mental realm they may be subtler than ectoplasm,
which is the subtle substance that composes the objective portion of the mind. Microvita are not protoplasmic in nature. They are much subtler than carbon atoms, which are presently considered to be the starting
point of life in the universe.
Physically, microvita are neither electrons nor ectoplasmn, but are just between. Microvita are mysterious
because their characteristics are not yet known to us.
There are neither of protozoic nor metazoic structure.
There are three levels of subtlety of microvita. The least
subtle come within the range of a powerful microscope. People give this type of microvitum the name
“virus”. But “virus” is a vague term and the better term
is microvitum. The next more subtle level of microvita
comes within the range of perception not directly but
as a result of their actional expression or actional faculty. The subtlest level of microvita can only be perceived by a special type of perception which is actually
the reflection of conception within the periphery of
perception. This special type of perception can only be
felt by persons having highly developed, spiritually oriented minds. A highly developed conceptual power is
required in order to know the secrets of microvita, and
this power can be developed through physico-psychospiritual practices or Sa’dhana’.
Microvita move throughout the entire universe. They
pass without restriction through galaxies and other celestial objects such as planets, satellites and meteors.
Their movement is neither restricted by temperature
nor by pressure. They move unbarred through the universe.

Sarkar emphasized the importance of starting research
on microvita immediately. In the higher intellectual
realm, research on microvita is extremely necessary.
One day human beings will be able understand and
control microvita properly. Many problems facing humanity will be solved through this knowledge and application of their properties.

Microvita are living entities. They exist, multiply and
die. They require some medium for their movement,
and can move through several media at once. They can
move through sound, tactuality and forms. In the case
of some diseases they move through smell. Subtler microvita can move through ideas. Directed by someone
with a great, conceptually developed mind, microvita
can also spread ideas throughout a planet or even the

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 25

Microvita are the starting point of life or vitality in the
universe. They are the carriers of life in different stars
and planets, and not carbon atoms or carbon molecules. Microvita create both minds and bodies, and
can destroy minds and bodies as well, anywhere in the
universe. So the unit microvitum is the root cause of
life and not unicellular protozoa or unit protoplasmic
Microvita exist as collective structures as well as individual structures. These collective structures of microvita may have both positive and negative effects on the
human mind. Positive microvita fall into seven main
categories and are also known as devayonis or luminous bodies. People dominated by these qualities may
become such entities after their deaths, before again
taking birth as human beings.
One such collective structure, called Yaks’a, increase
one’s desire to accumulate more and more wealth.
While they have some positive qualities, they can also
produce a divisive intellect in human beings and lead
people to dominate and exploit others.
Gandharva microvita arouse love for the fine arts in
the human mind.
Kinnara microvita create a thirst for beauty and decoration.
Vidyadhara microvita create a deep urge to attain good
Videhalina microvita cause people to rush from place
to place and lose sight of their spiritual goal.
Prakritilina microvita cause people to rush towards
life’s crude pleasures.
Finally, Siddha microvita help people in the domain
of spirituality. They help human beings rise above the
physical and mental strata and guide them to the world
of Cognition or spirituality.
There are also seven main types of negative microvita.
Evil-minded people suffer in these forms after death.
These Pretayonis or so-called ghosts can sometimes be
seen but cannot do any harm. The type of people who
become these negative microvita are also listed. Later
these negative microvita are reborn as human beings.
Durmukha (“ugly face”). People who abuse, criticize
and condemn good people with their harsh, pinching
Kabandha (“bondage making the mind very small”).

People who commit suicide due to despair and materialistic failure.
Madhya Kapal (“medium skull”). Hypocrites who restlessly change sides to do evil work.
Maha Kapal (“great skull”). Those who out of a selfaggrandizing nature and for sadistic pleasure kill millions.
Gandha Pisacha (“stinking ghost”). Those who misuse
their intellectual power to impose dogmas and fear on
Akashii Preta (“sky ghost”). Those who are highly, cruelly ambitious and indulge in luxurious living. This includes most millionaires.
Pisacha (“monster”). Those who are cruelly ambitious
even while others starve. They will eat anything and everything without limit, including human flesh.
The crudest type of microvita were instrumental for
the emanation of life from the Cosmos. They created
a stir of vitality in physical structures and later caused
changes in the evolving physical structures of plants,
animals and human beings. The next subtler type of
microvita, though they cannot be seen even in a very
powerful microscope, function within the world of
perceptions or inferences of sound, touch, form, taste
and smell. The subtlest category functions directly
within the human mind.
Microvita cannot be created by human beings. Nor can

microvita are not of carbonic origin.
Protoplasmic structures cannot be formed without
carbon atoms. If the nuclei of protoplasmic cells are
split, they release much more energy than a nuclear

ordinary comprehension. This new understanding of
microvita will create a revolutionary change in chemistry, bio-chemistry and all other associated branches
of science. All formulas and theories followed up until
now will have to be changed.

microvita entering the body or mind create a comfortable feeling. A few microvita entering the body or
mind produce much change of feeling, but when millions enter, it becomes very difficult for anyone to survive very long. Normally, microvita are more active at
night when people are asleep.

Microvita can be positive or negative, as well as neutral,
for human beings. They may affect human beings both
individually and collectively. Good people can take the
help of friendly microvita to stop the degeneration of
society as a result of the depraving effects of enemy
or negative microvita. Even negative microvita can be
beneficial if controlled by good people, just as a poison
which is usually fatal can also act as a life-saving drug.
The crudest microvita occupy etheric space, that is,
physical space. The next subtler microvita occupy
psychic space, and the subtlest occupy supra-psychic
space, at the border between the psychic and the spiritual worlds. Since microvita are creations of the Cosmic Mind, they do not function on the spiritual level.
They cannot affect the spiritual structure, but can affect
the physical and mental structures, i.e. the body and
the mind.

Big changes can be brought about in the human body
by controlling the microvita in the protoplasmic cells.
Mental qualities and capabilities can be increased by
supplying sufficient quantities of microvita. So the
theory of microvita has the potential for introducing
many changes in human society. Changes in the ectoplasmic cells of the objective portion of the mind will
also bring about changes in the endoplasmic coverage
of the mind, so the mind will achieve better control
over the body.

The inner secret of life and vital progress in the fields of
physicality, psyche and spirituality is the microvitum.

So the overall personalities of human beings will
change as a result of the application of microvita. The
appearance of the human body will also change in the
future. In the first stage, human beings will become
more psychic than physical. Later they will become
more spiritual than psychic.

of particular agricultural crops, such as jute or potatoes.
Various elements such as tin and copper will be created by using microvita to change the inner structure
of atoms. Petroleum will also be artificially produced
with the help of microvita. The scope for change will
be greater in metals than non-metals. The field of pyrotechnology will be radically changed and much more
powerful explosives will be developed in the future.
Increasing the mobility of microvita in explosives will
cause the explosives to be more powerful. The mode
and speed of rockets will also be affected.
The different results sometimes obtained in chemical reactions in apparently constant conditions, are
actually due to the differences in the microvita in the
chemicals. The manufacture of medicines (pharmochemistry) will be greatly improved in the future by
the application of the theory of microvita. The activity
of a medicine depends on the number and type of microvita in the medicine. Medicines will be developed

tems. All these physical and subtle elements have their
own identity, but what manages their apparently intensive internal functioning and the cooperation of all elements? Which language do they speak, what do they
have in common? Chemical elements in principle follow the laws of nature, but what about biological units?
If all organic components, from the simplest to the
most complex, have an identity and are able to communicate, their physical and subtle components must
be granular, rather than monolithic. Otherwise, there
is no reason why they would not merge, like drops of
water or ice cubes in water.

WE ARE LIVING IN an age of science.[2] Cosmology,
the study of our universe[3], what it is made of and
what it comes from, has fascinated human beings since
earliest times[.4] In Amsterdam, Netherlands, tickets
for the public lectures by Dr. Robbert Dijkgraaf, the
previous president of the Dutch Academy of Sciences
(NAW), are sold out in 15 minutes. A present fascination with authentic meaning, which at present is given
by science rather than religion, is apparent.
With Michael Towsey, we can ask: “What is the substratum, the most fundamental material, of the universe?”
But watch out, that very universe, or at least our world,
is composed of physical, mental and emotional objects.
This asks for a different and more detailed question:
“What is the substance of chemical and biological, of
physical and subtle objects?” It is generally assumed,
that thoughts are abstract and because of that, don’t
have a substance. On the other hand, it’s hard to deny
that they are something. Although its nature may not
yet be understood, something with an active effect cannot be based on nothing. So, be open to serendipity and
at least for the time being, assume that also thoughts
have a substance.

An overall mind, capable of managing the identity of all
sub-minds of the structural network to which it is connected to, must also have a full-grown identity. Such
full-grown identity does not drop from a clear sky;
it must have developed in the course of a long learning and adaptation process, called evolution. How did
mind emerge from matter? Biological organisms include the presence of molecules and atoms; they must
have taken part in the evolution, with or without Beagle. The motto of biology “omnis cellula e cellula’ (Latin
for: every cell comes from a cell) does not bring clarity.
Darwin’s opinion in a letter to John Hooker is also not
helpful: “It is merely rubbish thinking at present of the

A definition of consciousness is more problematic. In
Western parlance, the word is understood to mean
‘subjectivity, personal experience, observation (awareness)’ or ‘something that we lose when we fall in
dreamless sleep and regain when we wake up’. These
definitions reduce consciousness to a single property,

not only accounts for the different strata of the Macro
level, but also for the strata of the Micro level.
If everything in this universe is a composition of consciousness and energy, all subatomic particles, atoms,
molecules, but also unicellular and multicellular organisms -like human beings- must be composed of
consciousness and energy. Gyaneshwar already indicated that either of the two may be sleeping, while the
other is actively awake. This means that either of the
two may, or may not, have expression, but a full expression of both will not occur simultaneously. Since only
either of the two can have full, i.e. 100% expression,

this is the image of a potter and his clay. Clay is the material cause for a new pot, while the potter is its first efficient cause. If clay and potter stand next to each other,
no new pot will ever appear, so the specific qualities
and skills of the potter are essential for the form and
production of the pot. Energy is the second efficient
cause that connects the potter and his intention for a
new pot. Still the picture is incomplete: if potter, clay
and energy are available, nothing will appear unless a
creative and intelligent potter designs a concept for the
new pot. But the potter also needs to be skilled and
creative during the procedure of actual production.
This is the dual act of creativity that occurs both in the
abstract, as well as in the material phase. Both phases
need energy and the creativity of consciousness.
How to transfer this image to the nature of the universe? (See Figure 1.) Consider the potter for all activities as the subjective and the double-layered universe
as the objective platform. Conceptu¬al, generic, creativity is Jina Purus’a while procedural, specific creativity is Krta Purus’a [13]. This subjective platform is
connected to an objective platform that is also doublelayered and composed of specific, material units (waveparticles) and specific, subtle units (mind). Conceptual
creativity (Jina Purus’a) guides the emergence of new
and the maintenance of existing material forms while
procedural creativity (Krta Purus’a) guides the rise
and evolution of minds. Like the composition of minds

the two poles. Note zenith for top and nadir for bottom. The zenith pole is a metaphor for its origin, Consciousness, and the ultimate unity of the individual and
the Cosmic mind. The nadir hints at the ultimate expression of Energy in matter. (see Figure 8.)

2.2 Mass and Matter
If we are focussing on definitions, now the moment has
come to define ‘matter.’ Matter and mass are closely related and since mass is an earlier phenomenon in evolution, some thoughts will be first dedicated to ‘mass’.
The closeness of the two rapidly results in circular definitions, like “Mass is a measure of how much matter is
in an object”[15] or in “The mass of an object is a fundamental property of the object; a numerical measure
of its inertia; a fundamental measure of the amount of
matter in the object.”[16] or “Mass is the quantity of
matter in a body.”[17] Mass is a fundamental property
in physics and admittedly, fundamental elements are
difficult to define.
Einstein was clear about m in his formula: E = mc2;
m means mass, not matter. It is striking that matter
does not have a universal definition, but most definitions include inertia and the occupa¬tion of space. A
confusing problem with this approach is that both fundamental particles and atoms include inertia and occupy space, and because of that, both are called ‘matter.’
(Also see Chapter 5.)

3 - A new symmetry
THE FUNDAMENTAL LAWS of physics have shown
that no preference of matter over antimatter exists. An
almost perfect mirror-symmetry between matter and
antimatter is accepted; each particle has its antiparticle.
Particle-antiparticle pairs exist, like quark-antiquark,
electron-positron, proton-antiproton, neutron-antineutron or photon-antiphoton. Antiparticles have the
same amount of mass and spin, but opposite charge.
Photons have zero mass, neutral electric charge, are
quanta of electro- magnetic energy and their spin is
potentially right-handed and left-handed.

Figure 2
In accordance with the above ideas, another symmetry
can now be mentioned, a symmetry between physical particles with expressed energy, but dormant consciousness, and ‘particles’ with expressed consciousness, but relatively small levels of energy, in the next
chapter called ‘microvita’, here only ‘positive m.v.’ and
‘negative m.v.’ (Figure 2.) In this universe, energy can
never be absolutely zero, because in each realization of
consciousness some amount of energy is included. Such
‘particles’, mainly consisting of expressed consciousness, are knowledgeable and creative; they ‘know’ what
is proper and efficient, can make individual or cooperative decisions and consequently are more or less living units.
Elementary and composite particles of energy follow
the laws of physics. ‘Particles of consciousness’ are different, they are intelligent, creative and active in the
application of particles of energy. The two do not compete, but are complementary in all chemical and biological forms.

of ‘micro’ and ‘vitum’ ‘Microvitum’ merges the Greek
word mikros, meaning ‘small’, and the Latin word ‘vitum’ meaning ‘life’. They are called microvitum, not nanovitum, millivitum or macrovitum. The term ‘micro’
refers to a specific small size: the micrometer (µm),
which is 10^-6 m. So a ‘microvitum’ is something that
operates in forms with a size in the range of µm. Which
organisms have a size between 1 and 1,000µm? The size
of atoms is roughly 0,1-1nm (10^-9m). The smallest
virus, poliovirus, is 0,03µm; a bacterium (a prokaryotic
cell) is 0,5-2µm and an amoeba (eukaryotic cell) is 220740µm. The word microvitum clearly hints at a vital
field of action: microbiological life.
“Microvita come from outer space and the extended
universe.” They are living units with characteristics like
memory, intellect and creativity and can be called ‘the
creative, catalysing agents of life.’ The whole universe,
so also our planet, is their field of activity. In this vast
space they are the carriers of life, the matrix, and as
such they unite matter and mind, the laws of physics
and the principles of organic life.

logical machine of human beings has a layered overall
mind, also composed of molecules of mind, that are
compositions of positive and subtle negative microvita.
To be very clear: all given numbers regarding microvita are only intended to give an order of magnitude.
Anyone is able to extrapolate these numbers to the
macro scale of the universe, its space and its 10^113
hydrogen atoms. Interesting numbers arise when the
total amount of energy, included in space and atoms, is
compared with the amount of presently known energy
in the universe.

4.3 Denominations
THREE DENOMINATIONS of microvita exist: crude
and subtle, negative microvita, as well as positive microvita [23] (See Figures 3. and 4.) and sub-denominations of clusters and superclusters in mind. If elementary physical particles and antiparticles meet, they
annihilate each other and produce new particles, like
photons. This will not happen if positive and negative
microvita meet or if microvita meet particles or anti-

4.2 Numbers
IF MICROVITA are present in this universe, how many
of them, as an indication, are involved in an atom, a
cell, a human body and our universe?
The number of crude, negative microvita in a carbon
atom = ~10^10[19]. The number of atoms in a human cell is ~t 10^14.[20] This means that the number
of crude, negative microvita in such a cell is roughly
10^14 x 10^10 = 10^24. The number of cells in a human body is ~ 10^13[21], which means that the number of crude, negative microvita in a human body is ~
10^13 x 10^24 = 10^37. Although these numbers are
already beyond imagination, they only include crude,
negative microvita.
A human body not only has cells, but also 10^14 bacteria[22], which are also compositions of atoms, biological cells and microvita. The number of crude, negative
microvita that is involved in these bacteria is ~: 10^24
x 10^14 = 10^38. This is even without the presence of
subtle negative, as well as positive microvita that are
present in organelles, cells, bacteria, human tissues, organs and their overall minds. Apart from that, the bio-

particles. If microvita and particles meet under proper
conditions, the result will be constructive and form
will emerge.
Figure 3 and 4.
In this paper I have left out neutral microvita, without
spin, as a separate denomination. In the past years I understood neutral microvita to form atoms. The mission
to form simple and complex molecules was for crude
negative microvita. Now I don’t see strong reasons why
crude, negative microvita should only undertake the
formation of atoms, without also being included in
the formation of molecules, which in fact are similar
chemical elements. It has to be admitted though, that
the connection of atoms into molecules is quite different from the structure of atoms.
Ultimately two essentially different forms will result.
First forms are chemical and only have a potential
mind; later forms are biological and have an actual
mind. Initially real minds can be incomplete and simple, but have the potential to evolve into complete and
complex minds. Simplicity or complexity of mind depends on the state of their evolution.
Subatomic particles are particles of energy, microvita
are units of mind. Atoms are composed of subatomic particles, kinetic energy and homogeneous, crude,
negative microvita. Because of the single presence of
this denomination of microvita, atoms only have mind
in potential form. Also molecules contain only crude,
negative microvita, while viruses contain crude (from
the atoms and molecules included), as well as subtle,
negative microvita in an overall mind. Since microvita
have expressed consciousness, they are knowledgeable
and know what is the right thing to do under the given circumstances. This explains the skill of viruses to
quickly adjust to new situations, despite the fact that
they don’t have a brain and even an incomplete, very
simple mind. The simplest organisms with a simple,
but complete mind, are organelles and microbes. A
complete mind is a mind with heterogeneous molecules of mind, composed of subtle, negative as well as
positive microvita.

4.4 Phases of inactivity
Microvita are sensitive to temperature and “will undergo contraction and hibernation at freezing temperature and expansion and hibernation at boiling
temperature.”[25] All fundamental and composite
subatomic particles were formed during the first 3
minutes after the BB at a temperature between 10^32K
and 10^6K. During these years, all present denominations of microvita could only hibernate. It took another
377,000 years before the temperature of the universe
had dropped till 3,700K. (See Attachment A.) This was
the moment that photons no longer were bound to the
plasma of matter and became free. [26] The Standard
Model of Cosmology calls that event ‘recombination.’
After this, crude, negative microvita, electrons and
nucleons could unite into the first atoms, Hydrogen,
Helium, Lithium, Beryllium and Boron.[27] In the first
phase of evolution, the physical foundation has been
laid for the later inclusion and evolution of mind. All
other natural atoms are the result of local explosions
of stars, super and hyper novae (jadasphota). These
events also need to be placed at the nadir, the very end
of the first phase of the cycle. (See Figures 6, 7 and 13.)
Phases of hibernation are connected to high and low
temperatures, but these situations are not limited to the
first 377,000 years of the universe; they are of all times.
A giant virus (containing only crude and subtle, negative microvita) more than 30,000 years old, has been
discovered in Siberian permafrost [28]. After a further
rise in global temperatures and the subsequent melting
of tundra, more viruses will become active again. Another situation in which microvita hibernate, and even
the atoms they are part of completely loose identity, is
the so-called ‘Bose-Einstein condensate’ at a temperature of 0ºK.

dramatic opposite: “No, matter is not bottled-up en-

ergy.” In his discourses from 31 December 1986, he
spoke about microvita, which explains the seeming
change of perspective. Here it is important to realize
that physics uses the word ‘matter’ for both ‘subatomic
particles with rest mass’ and ‘atoms.’ In 1965 and 1979,
P.R. Sarkar used the word ‘matter’ in accordance with
the usual understanding of matter as also ‘subatomic
particles with rest mass’. In 1989, after having spoken
for about 2,5 years about microvita, he indicated that
mass is a collection of energy, while ‘matter” -‘atoms-’
includes both energy and ‘microvita.’ Matter has mass,
like a body has a skeleton, but it is much more than
mass, also microvita are included. This understanding
is closely connected to a hotly debated text from the
first discourse by P.R. Sarkar about microvita in December 1986: ”Here we should again remember the
fact that these microvita are [[a]] creation in the internal phase, rather in the returning phase of cosmic
expression”[30]. The consequence of this sentence
is that, if microvita only become active in the second
phase of cosmic evolution, they cannot take part in
the emergence of sub-atomic particles during the first
phase. Recently someone wrote me an e-mail and mentioned “a misunderstanding about microvita that was
spread at a microvita seminar in India in the 90’s, ‘that
millions of microvita compose an electron’, when in
fact P.R. Sarkar apparently never said that”.
However, two particular quotes still call for an explanation: “The mass of matter has got nothing to do with
energy.[31 ]”If a previous conclusion (i.e. microvita are
involved in atoms, but not in subatomic particles) is
accepted, subatomic particles are nothing but energy.
Does the last sentence deny this? Not, if we look for a
deeper understanding: “Energy is consciousness, under the bondage of Prakrti”, or “Energy is knower-I or
Jina Purus’a”. (See Figure 10.)

mass and matter. My proposal is to include perception:
“Mass is a quantity of energy in a particle, with a form
that, in principle, cannot be perceived by the senses.”
The inclusion of microvita in ‘Matter’ could result in:
‘Matter is a substance, composed of mass and crude,
negative microvita, that occupies space and can be perceived by the senses.’

6 - Evolution
6.1 A first, philosophical, model
PHYSICS IS CONSIDERED to explain so-called nonliving matter, as well as biological organisms. The
Standard Model of Physics considers the universe as a
meaningless space, ruled by mechanical laws, ultimate
ending like its beginning in a Big Crunch or Big Freeze.
Entropy and syntropy[32] are not seen as complementary but as a struggle with only one outcome, the death
of everything and all. That may be true for dogmatic
science, but not all scientists are dogmatic. Many, like
Elisabet Sahtouris, long for a new model of physics that
includes organic principles.[33]
How different form the linear approach of physics is
the view of P.R. Sarkar. His model does not consider
evolution as a meaningless and linear event, but as a
dance between two lovers, where the full expression
of one unfolds the essence of the other. He considers evolution as a cyclical process in which beginning
and end, Alpha and Omega are connected. Because
of that, the name of this process is Brahmacakra[34]
or the Wheel of Creation (WoC). At this moment at
least three models of creation and evolution exist. The
first, philosophical, model is based on the ideas of P.R.
Sarkar and does not actually include insights from cosmology, astrophysics, physics or the impact of microvita. The second model is the Standard Model of Cosmology, closely connected to the Standard Model of
particle physics. A third model, unfolding in this essay,
accepts both philosophical thoughts and Cosmological

The previous conclusion that microvita are not intrinsic elements of subatomic elementary and composed
particles, is based on the authority of P.R. Sarkar. In
my opinion authority can be accepted, as long as it is
also supported by additional observation, analysis and
proper conclusions. (see Attachment A.) Blindly fol- The first model is represented by Ac. Vedaprajinananlowing authority kills individual responsibility and ini- da Avt [35]. (See Figure 5.) Evolution starts from one

ternal forms) appear. By separating these forms from
the objective universe, the Cosmic Mind may have a
connection with Citta, but in reality is separate from it.
This is in contrast with the elliptical form of the drawing, as a metaphor for oneness between Cosmic Mind
and objective universe.[37] Citta can only be a word
for the transformation of Ahamtattva (See Figure 5-1.)
into all immediate and later phenomena and events of
the universe, without any exception.

6.2 A second, materialist, model

WHETHER the objective world is essential or not, we
receive and interpret information from it. Eventually
all objects with which we have contact, are made up of
atoms, which in turn are compositions of fundamental particles. When we see an object, we see electrons
moving like the propeller of an airplane and conclude
that what we see is solid. All our senses have a specific

Figure 7.)

the optimal expression of Energy, solid factor.
Figure 5 and 6.
In a way the suggestion of the first model makes sense:
single celled organisms are indeed simple forms of life.
But the question is: are these simple organisms the very
beginning of life or does solid factor have that potential? If unicellular life is the very start of the animated
phase, it should be there,[38] but the nadir is also a
metaphor for the final stage of Saincara[39]. It seems
that two candidates apply for the same position but
are they really two candidates? Life that emerges in the
second phase, does not do so immediately and in full
grown form, but very gradually in quantum-like steps.
In that case, crudest matter is not the first stage of life
but it can be its very first stage. So, crudest matter, the
very first stage of life, should be given seat at the nadir
of the Wheel of Creation. This suggestion only seems
to replace one conflict by another, but no, in a later
chapter, atoms will be suggested as the crudest form of
matter, as well as the very start of the animated stage.
(See already Figure 6.)

Cosmology researches the consequent emergence and
characteristics of elementary and composite particles
of the universe. Physics researches and describes these
particles, as both waves and particles at the same time.
These waves can be dipole, quadrupole or higher order waves. If it is true that ultimately the universe is
only spacetime [40] and a sea of vacuum fluctuations,
all elementary particles will ultimately be described as
dipole waves, that possess quantized angular momentum. In other words, at this moment in 2015, it remains
increasingly doubtful whether particles of space will
ever be detected. Spacetime seems to be too subtle for
such elements. Astronomers are already excited about
a possible detection of gravity waves in the next years.
A loud ‘chirp’ sound that arises after the merging of
two neutron stars, for less than a tenth of a second, will
confirm their existence. The observation of that event
will confirm general relativity and will rise above the
indirect proof of those waves in 1993.
After the Planck Epoch (10^-43sec aBB), the temperature in the Grand Unification Epoch (See Figure 8.)
was extremely high (T = 10^32K). (See Attachment
A) Because of this, the included amount of energy per
volume was also extremely high and its wavelength extremely short. The associated fundamental, very short
range, force particles were Higgs bosons. Born under
such conditions, they should contain a lot of mass, and
yes they do: 126 GeV/c2 compared to electrons with
0.511 MeV/c2 and neutrino’s with a mere 2.2 eV/c2.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 38

Despite the plasmic state of the universe they could exhibit their specific identity. That cannot be said of the
other force particles, photons with 0 mass, photons.
Energy in the form of photons did exist in abundance,
but remained in the plasmic state and behaved like a
dense, non-local field. (see Figure 9.) Spacetime, as
pure waves and or as wave-particles, is the first element
with identity. (1)
The three pairs of quarks appeared in the next Quarkantiquark Epoch and ultimately united into single protons (u-u-d) and neutrons (u-d-d), (baryons). Under
the then occurring circumstances they were able to
express their identity at a temperature of 10^13K. (2)
Also in the Photon Epoch photons keep their theoretical rest-mass 0 at a temperature of 10^6K. In the
plasmic state they remained hidden and behaved like
nonlocal particles. Before Recombination (with a temperature of 3,000K), they detached from the other
mass particles, by which their characteristics got exposed. (3)
Leptons, of which electrons are the most well known,
emerged during the Lepton Epoch, and could express
their identity at temperatures between 10^13K and
10^9K. (4)

it should not be difficult to design a new one. Then,
why not also design new physics, astrophysics, biology,
chemistry, sociology and philosophy? It would be quite
irresponsible to even suppose that all research of the
past was completely wrong. Even rejections should be
constructive and contain answers or at least the very
start of answers. As already hinted at in Chapter 6.1,
this third model is based on suggestions of P.R. Sarkar,
as well as on findings that have been accepted in the
Standard Models of Cosmology and Physics. The Big
Bang is an integrated element in Cosmology and an accepted element in this third model. (See Figure 7.) Not
accepted in the Standard Model of Cosmology is the
primary emergence of a Cosmic Mind, as suggested
by P.R. Sarkar, and its relation to the physical universe.
The third Model is based on the idea that the physical
universe is a metamorphosed form, Citta, of the Macro
Cosmic Mind. The first two, abstract, components of
that Macro Cosmic Mind, are Mahattattva (pure existential, subjective-I) and Ahamtattva (Internally active, subjective-I), while the third component is the
objectivated-I, called Citta or objective universe. But
Mind cannot emerge, if not first a desire for objectivation would exist. This very first, seed or motionless
presence is called Shambhu (still inert Consciousness).

Atoms have mass and contain all four elementary particles: spacetime, quarks, photons and electrons. They
emerge and developed their identity at Recombination,
at a temperature of 3,000K. (5)

6.3 A third, synthetical, model
RECENTLY SOMEONE e-mailed me: “I cannot believe that anyone who studied P.R. Sarkar’s ideology,
would consider the Big Bang to be ”scientific.” This
is close to Michael Towsey’s statement that “The universe started with the initial creation of the 5FF[41]
from Cosmic Citta”. It ignores the integration of the
Macro Cosmic Mind, the phenomenal universe and
the BB. Why would anyone reject the theory of the
BB, although it has quite many unanswered questions?
Until now the BB is the best we have. It should only
be replaced after a theory with better answers has developed and been accepted. (New theories are already
being developed: ‘Plasma Cosmology’ and a variant
‘The Electric Universe’) If it is so easy to reject the BB,

Figure 7.
Both Vedaprajinanda and Michael Towsey made a
split between Citta and the rest of the universe that is
composed of the five fundamental factors (elementary
particles in bulk quantities) and their transformations.
In other words, Citta is suggested as separate from the
physical universe. Both suggest that neither the five
fundamental factors in Saincara (Sanskrit for the first
phase of evolution), nor Pratisaincara (the second part
of evolution), in fact the complete universe, are objectivated parts of the Cosmic Mind. This is in conflict with
the idea that the universe is a thought projection of the
Macro Cosmic Mind.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 39

Just like these three models may have built-in contradictions and white spots, the theory of the BB may also
have white spots. If this is the case, additional interpretations may be added, without stepping out of the
Wheel of Creation (WoC) or the BB model. Another
matter is whether the BB model has an approach that
allows all questions to arise and get answers that do
justice to the nature of the questions. At the same time
the philosophical approach of the WoC does not include observa¬tions of relevant phenomena. In order
to promote relevant questions and answers, the BB
model and the WoC have been united. One of the first
consequences is that the very start (t = 0) of the BB
and the philosophical momentum of Shambhu have
been included in the third model. Not only that, the BB
model is also equipped with an Alpha and an Omega
that moreover, at least potentially, unite.
This means that the course of evolution no longer is
random and linear, but needs to be drawn as a circle
with a zenith and a nadir. Maximum expression of
Consciousness occurs near or in the zenith, while
maximum expression of Energy will be in the nadir.
(See Figure 8.)

Figure 8. and 9.
“Kalá is followed by further formation of curvatures
one after another, but each succeeding curve is not
necessarily of the same wavelength as the preceding
one. In fact, the difference goes on increasing as the
wavelength continues to decrease.”[44] This stage is
called bhava (‘to become’, ‘idea’ or ‘psycho-spiritual
parallelism’). In this stage the Supreme Consciousness
is gradually becoming the universe or Cosmic Citta.
“The seed point represents will force, náda cognitive
force and kalá represents actional force.“[46]
Kalá is first followed by homogeneous and then by heterogeneous waves. According to P.R. Sarkar,: “Kalá is
followed by further formation of curvatures one after
another, but each succeeding curve is not necessarily
of the same wavelength as the preceding one. In fact,
the difference goes on increasing as the wavelength
continues to decrease.” The Standard Model of Cosmology -and in fact common understanding- concludes the opposite.[47] Initially the temperature in
the early Universe was extremely high and gradually
lowered, which can only mean that the wavelength of
particles gradually increased.This could mean a conflict with the previous text of P.R. Sarkar, because Inflation is calculated to have happened and if it happened,
what was the cause of it?

It was in the vertex of the triangle of forces[42] -called
iccha’biija, the ‘seed of desire’-, where the static force
burst out, that Consciousness (Shambhu) was laying,
in complete silence and without any movement. Yet,
this silence is the bursting point, the noumenal cause
of the phenomenal universe. It is the first stage of evolution outside the triangle of forces and has only one
desire: to create sound in its deep silence. The outcome
was the pure existential feeling of Cosmic Mahattattva.
All it created was a straight line and this linear movement is called náda[43]. (see Figure 10.) In the next
phase, the flow of creation was characterized by curvaFigure 10.
tures, but the potentiality of sound was still in its pri- It could be assumed here, that the wavelengths of the
first waves decreased until inflation and after that increased because of the continuing expansion of the
universe and its decreasing temperature.

mordial phase and is called kalá.

Figure 10. shows a new, not yet explained term, ‘Bifurcation,’ as well as the integration of ‘Shambhu’ and
the Big Bang. Without at least some analysis, these two
events cannot be understood or accepted. First the

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 40

term ‘Bifurcation’ will be approached.
The phenomenal world that we perceive, appears both
objective and subjective, concrete and abstract, linear
and organic, and to contain both particles of energy
(fundamental particles) and units of consciousness
(microvita). The objective platform is based on subatomic particles that blindly and linearly follow the
forces of nature.The subjective platform with its particles of consciousness looks for opportunities to contact
the complementary particles of energy. (See Figure 1.)
Although both platforms have their own identity, they
are complementary. The subjective platform is founded on microvita and their procedural creativity (Krta
Purus’a), which is guided by the conceptual creativity
of the knowing principle (Jina Purus’a).
Although these two platforms are separate, they are
strongly connected. The conceptual creativity of the
subjective platform is also a guiding principle for the
evolution of material forms.The generic, procedural
creativity of microvita is causative for the transformation and evolution of the different strata of mind on
Macro and Micro level. If all activities take place on
the path of evolution from one into many, a moment
in time must have existed when the two platforms were
still one and not yet bifurcated. As soon as Aham was
ready to transform into objectivity, the bifurcation
of Aham, into a Knowing and a Doing principle, occurred. This moment is also the birth of space and the
entrance of microvita in it. One could say, they are intertwined.[48] P.R. Sarkar suggested “microvita come
from outer space[49], from the extended universe.”[50]
If the different denominations of microvita also control
the emergence, transformation and evolution of Macro
Cosmic Citta, this bifurcation must have occurred at
the very first stage of it. The first stage of Citta is spacetime, which means that, from the very first existence
of spacetime, microvita were entering the expanding
universe. This also means that, with the expansion of
the universe, the number of microvita will continue to
increase, rather than gradually decrease.

Macro Mind?‘ (See Figure 11-A, resp. 11-B.)
Cosmology hardly understands anything about consciousness, let alone about its involvement in chemical compounds and biological organisms. It denies the

existence of mind and, because of that, will not be able,
nor willing, to choose between option A and option B.
Figure 11.
The first, purely philosophical and the third, synthetical model, both accept the seed of creation, Shambhu
as a philosophical, as well as an ultimate, first material
Option A (See figure 11-A) sees Shambhu and the BB
as one and the same event, with Shambhu as an abstract, at t=0 of BB, and mystical component of the
origin of the universe. If evolution is understood as a
dance between two partners, -consciousness and energy- it started as an abstract ‘period’ beyond spacetime,
with the unfolding of Mahat and Aham of the Macro
Cosmic Mind. This very abstract period coincides with
the calculated period of the Planck Epoch of 10^-43
s, as integrated in the Standard Model of Cosmology.
During this epoch the laws of physics didn’t apply and
all thoughts about it are speculative. It is thought to be
a period of great turmoil and fluctuations, in which the
four forces of nature did not yet have their own identity, did not yet exist or were united. The opposite may
very well be true: it was an epoch of mystical silence.

A split second after the end of Planck Epoch, (at t=
10^-33s aBB) so, also after Bifurcation, a tremendous
expansion of space, called Inflation, took place. Within

Also Option B (see also Chapter 7, Figures 7., 11-B and
13.) views Shambhu as the very first moment of creation, but has a different view on the integration of the
BB and the Wheel of Creation. The abstract event of
Shambhu was the initiative for the emergence of both
Cosmic Mahat and Aham. When Aham was at the point
of becoming metamorphosed into an objective reality,
many things happened at the same time: Bifurcation of
Aham, with the opening of space and entrance of microvita, but also the occurrence of the BB. Here the BB
is caused by the readiness of Aham to become objective. After this development, Planck Epoch of 10^-43 s

as the BB. Different from option B, the development
of Macro Cosmic and micro cosmic minds in option
A, occur in one uninterrupted flow. Option B has four
moments of essential events: Shambhu, Big Bang, Bifurcation and Inflation. William of Occam (1288-1346)
already explained, yes, with his razor blade,that three is
better than four. Since in option A Shambhu and the
Big Bang are united, it only knows three of such events.

can neutrinos, with their almost complete lack of interaction with matter, be chosen for position 2?
I have followed the birth of identity according to the
Standard Model of Cosmology, concluded that atoms
contain all 5FF and put them at position 5, for solid. My
choice for the position of photons at number 3, rather
than number 1, is more evident than it seems at first
sight. Before a mammal is born, it has names in accordance with its stages of development. First its name is
‘seed’, then ’cell’, after which it is called ‘embryo’ and ‘fetus’. Only after the young being is born, it is able to cry,
to use all its senses and move in the new situation. All
young mammals expose qualities in accordance with
their specific conditions, whether they are polar bears,
monkeys, elephants or human beings. Something similar applies to elementary particles. In accordance with
the particular character¬istics of their identity, either
Higgs bosons, electrons, gluons or photons emerge in
the most befitting conditions for each. Photons have
zero mass, so conditions with mass limit their expression. They may join but hide. After the temperature of
the universe reached 3,700K, photons decoupled from
matter. Once they were free, ~ 23% of the neutrons
joined with protons into nucleons and a tiny number
of neutrons and protons united into slightly more complex nucleons. After that another binding occurred,
electrons united with the nucleons. At a temperature
between 3,700K and 3,000K, the photons became free
from matter and because of that became third in the
row to gain fundamental identity. With this in mind,
the sequence of wave-particles is 1. spacetime (and in
it Higgs bosons), 2. quarks, 3. photons, 4. leptons and
5. atoms.
A third and more fundamental question is why the elementary particles of energy that we now know, were
born inside specific densities, at specific temperatures
and what caused their specific identity? Why did nonlocal, ubiquitous energy transform into so many various
and uncountable local forms? No misunderstanding:
the same applies to ‘particles’ of consciousness. Why
did nonlocal, ubiquitous consciousness transform into
so many various and uncountable local forms?At this
moment, no one can tell. Science accepts observed situations as they are found and does not ask why they are
found and exist.

crude, negative microvita were the first ones to wake
up after their entrance into the universe in evolution.
These microvita united with the present nucleons and
electrons. What exactly is the contribution of crude,
negative microvita to the formation of atoms?
I can imagine two possible answers: 1 - Billions of
microvita simple step on board of the already atoms
formed. After that, they are ready to contact other microvita and create new forms, as soon as external conditions are appropriate for such development. In other
words, the fact that they step on board makes atoms
complete. 2 -A completely different answer is that they
wake up and immediately become active in the formation of big numbers of Hydrogen and Helium and
small numbers of Beryllium, Lithium and Boron. If
this is true: what do they do, how do they do it and for
how long? Three sentences by P.R. Sarkar in ‘Microvitum in a Nutshell’ refer to both questions.
2.1 -“To him or her a carbon atom is nothing but billions of microvita getting solidified.”[54] This sentence seems to hint at the inactive variant.
2.2 -“A single microvitum is insufficient to form one
carbon atom, but when billions of microvita get solidified, a carbon atom is formed.”[55] What strikes here
is: “they form one carbon atom” instead of “they unite
(or transform) to become one carbon atom.”
One interpretation almost needs to imply that they actively form an atom, but after that do not take part in it.
Another interpretation could imply that they actively
take part in the formation of the atom and join. Also
special is the word ‘solidified’ in sentence 1 and 2, hinting at getting ‘solid’ or ‘solid factor’, a possible hint at
the idea that atoms could be interpreted as ‘solid factor’. So: a carbon atom is what it is, after microvita have
entered the empty almost-atoms.
2.3 -“Billions of microvita produce a single carbon
atom.“[56] Again: “they produce a single atom” rather
than “they become a single atom.” This sentence seems
to a imply a more active role by microvita.

One thing is clear: none of these three sentences from
‘Microvitum in a nutshell’ even hints at subatomic parA fourth question is connected to the relation of nu- ticles. Only empirical research will give clear answers to

merge into one substratum. It is interesting to realize

microvita will hibernate.
When discussing matter, solid matter, so atoms, it looks
at first sight as if it only has one perceivable form, while
in reality at least three different states of matter (See
Figure 12.) exist. These three are: gas, liquid and solid.
Here ’matter’ means ‘atoms in bulk quantities’. All three
have their own specific identity, characteristics and are
subject to spacetime and can be heard, touched, seen,
tasted and smelled.
Gas[54] - is the subtle state of matter

- only light elements with few quarks

- minimal chemical bonding[55]
liquid[56] - is the dynamic state of matter

- molecules with moderate amounts of quarks

- moderate chemical bonding
solid[57] - is the crude state of matter

- elements with many quarks

- optimal chemical bonding

The three everyday states of matter exist in spacetime
and can be perceived. In order to be perceived, mere
existence does not suffice, also means of communication, a number of postmen, need to be available. Nature has provided two long-range means of transport:
light and sound, one short-range mediator, touch, and
two internal mediators, taste and smell.
Light is an electromagnetic wave and does not need a
medium, except space, for transport. In a vacuum its
speed is 300,000 km/sec, 3*10^8 m/sec. All other media do not increase, but lower the speed of light, e.g.,
in air its speed is ~ 0.03% lower than in a vacuum. The
speed of light also depends on its wavelengths and the
temperature of its environment on its path of traveling.
At absolute 0ºK, its speed is 0 m/sec. The hindrance
of solid matter, in bulk quantities, is such that light is
mainly absorbed and reflected, without transmission,
with for instance glass as an exception. (See Chapter

In reality not three, but at least five states of matter exist. The first of the extra two is plasma, a gas with a suf- Sound, on the other hand, is a mechanical wave and

8.2 Elementary Particles [62] and Sensations same wavelength as the previous one that entered.
What is the relation between all five sensations, including the above two media, and the wave-particles
as mentioned in Chapter 6.2 concerning the Standard
Model of Cosmology?

1 Spacetime is the mother of all wave-particles, which
could not exist without her. Since spacetime has no
medium, sound-waves cannot arise in it, but it can
transport them, provided the involved spaces are open
and connected. (See Figure 12.)

2 The origin of a sound-wave lies with a mechanical impetus. This kinetic energy ultimately works on
the mass of atoms that is mainly contained inside the
quarks of their nuclei. Sound works both as a long
range and a short range sensation, depending on the
intensity of the impetus and the density of the medium.
All three everyday states of matter can be touched and
felt.Touch is a complicated form of conception. Mind
tells us that we touch the floor when we walk and touch
the chair when we sit on it, while in reality those convictions are false concepts. All atoms are composed of
nucleons with a cloud of electrons around them. Electrons have a negative electric charge and like charges
repel. The more pressure is exerted, the bigger the force
between the two objects, while the distance between
the two does not decrease.

4 How do the various flavors arise in the mouth? Subtle
chemicals are dissolved by the saliva that is slightly alkaline.[63] [64] The reduced chemicals spread in the
mouth and connect to the 10,000 taste buds, each with
100-200 cells. This procedure results in the different
basic flavors and their many combinations.Boys of
about ten years of age like to do experiments. I wanted
to know what was the taste of electricity in a 4.5 Volt
battery. So I put my tongue between the two copper
strips. I still remember, apart from the tingling sensation, a sour and bitter taste. For me it is clear that for
flavor, the liquid state of matter is involved and with it,
electrons are the media.

5 The sensations of odors and flavor are closely connected. The word ‘olfaction’ refers to that connection.
Smell is carried by the mass of nucleons but, different from touch, only atoms and molecules with small
amounts of mass are involved. Substances that easily
take over to the gaseous state of matter, called volatile
elements,[65] are included. Elements like iron, that
are heavy and integrated in a tense grid of atoms are
nonvolatile, cannot be taken by an airflow and cannot be smelt. Like sound, odors are transported on
large scale flows of air molecules. However, these mechanical movements are longitudinal, rather than vibrational waves. Odorous molecules hit the olfactory

8.3 Perception
Five different media of information are present in the
universe, to inform organisms about objects and other
organisms that are near or distant. The universe is a
continuously changing phenomenon, which does not
mean that everything changes. Locations, combinations and quantities of objects do change. The nature
of elementary particles, whether they are bound or unbound, does not alter, what does alter is the amount of
intrinsic and kinetic energy, as well as their location.
These five elementary particles also function directly
or indirectly as media to deliver information to conscious observers. Clinical tests have shown that the
minimal quantities of those media can be very small.
In 1979, Baylor, Lamb and Yau showed that the rods in
the retina of toads responded to single photons.
A sense may be capable of absorbing and interpreting
small amounts of information, yet its capacity to receive
is limited. Sound waves can only be heard between 20
and 20.000 Hz. Surfaces offer a variety of four experiences, mechanoception, proprioception, thermoception, nocioception. It is a subtle and complicated sense,
which also has limitations. Light can be seen between
390 and 700 nm wavelength. Four basics tastes[67]
are more or less accepted: sweet, sour, salty and bitter.
Other tastes are controversial: umami, pungent, mouth
feel, carbon dioxide, minty and fresh. Ayurveda recognizes 6 tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and
astringent. The human nose can smell at least a trillion
scents[68] but most people only recognize 100-200.
Seven basic scents are recognized: musky, putrid, pungent, camphor, ethereal, floral and peppermint. Smell
and scent are closely connected.

A common man would ask now: “What could possibly be the reflection of a Bhu’ta on a cruder Bhu’ta?“
For sound and form, the general accepted mechanical
explanation seems appropriate and without conflict
with this philosophical approach. Light waves in huge
quantities, Bhu’tas, touch many electrons of an object
(cruder Bhu’tas) and are reflected from it in such a
way that they affect the sense organ of an observer. The
philosophical approach of smell seems to be in conflict
with physical research, because researchers explained
the particular molecules as their direct cause.
The situation changes when the earlier mentioned approach of Luca Turin is applied and even more when
the presence of microvita will be included. The vibrational frequency at quantum level still is a mechanical interpretation and does not include the reflection
of Bhu’tas. Atoms and molecules not only contain elementary particles of energy, but also[69] at least crude,
negative microvita. When these microvita conclude
that something like smell is beneficial for the survival
and reproduction of e.g. the plants they are part of,
they may choose for a particular expression. In turn,
this expression causes a change in the vibrational frequency at quantum level in the molecules. One consequence is that the internal level of energy will be
influenced. Those influenced molecules are integrated
into their gaseous surroundings and will make contact with other present molecules in the air. This will
result in absorption of the smell characteristics of the
influenced molecules by the air molecules.The waves
of these reflected molecules, Tanma’tras, will enter the
nose and be recognized by the smell organs.[70] Compared to the bulk amount of smell Bhu’ta, the number
of molecules inside need only be microscopic.

This knowledge may be impressive for the sake of
knowledge and in some situations even essential, but in
practical life a sense of perception is created with bulk
amounts of involved particles. In situations that are fit
for life, those particles are available in huge quantities.
The philosophical name for those quantities is Bhu’ta,
literally meaning ‘created object’, ‘created’ or ‘past’.
However, when we observe something, whether it is a
musical instrument, a rose, a glass of water or the night
sky, we don’t receive the directly involved particles, but
their reflections on cruder Bhu’tas. (See Figure 12.)

This interpretation deserves a much more focused investigation. Microvita not only include consciousness,
but also a certain amount of subtle energy, (See Figures
3. and 4.) which is energy with a longer wavelength
than, for instance, elementary particles. Microvita,
as well as elementary particles, are also waves, which
means that they will superimpose and interfere. The
wave patterns will meet and be in constructive, destructive or intermediate interference. Both forms of
interference can be in phase, in an extreme level of
180º out of phase or somewhere in between, e.g. 10º
out of phase.[71] The two pulses will form an algebraic

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 46

sum of the displacement of the individual waves.
Two or more waves can have a random impulse for interference, but if microvita and matter (which, by the
way, also contains microvita) meet, it is unlikely that
random superposition will be initiated. It makes much
more sense to suppose that these units of consciousness will play with such a situation and manipulate like
a bird manipulates the movement of its body, high in
the sky. Not like a boy or girl, moving a toy airplane
with the joystick of a computer, but integrated. This
looks like the beginning of a new kind of intuitive, rational and empirical research.

But parrots are not part of our local environment, how
did they get here?“
Another example, hearing. Electromagnetic waves reflect against objects, molecules of air with their internal heavy quarks, after which longitudinal waves are
produced. Our ears receive the chaos of sound waves
and translate them into new waves that our brains understand. We become aware of sound and, by the presence of microvita, know: ”It is a piano with a quick and
subtle melody that I hear now. It makes me relaxed and
mellow.” Objective information is complemented by
a subjective interpretation, as an answer to the ‘hard
problem of consciousness’ that David Chalmers hinted

23. In the past I distinguished between microvita without spin (neutral microvita), with negative spin (negative spin) and microvita with positive spin (positive
microvita). Subatomic particles have orbital angular
momentum and spin. To find the spin of atoms, we first
have to add all the orbital and spin angular momentum
of all protons and neutrons to obtain nuclear spin. After the same has been done for nucleus and electrons,
Atomic Spin results. This means that atomic and even
molecular spin depends on all involved particles. If microvita also have spin, and billions are included in an

atom, they obviously do not influence the net overall
spin. So two possibilities exist, either neutral microvita
have no angular momentum or they do. If they have
no angular momentum there is no need for them, provided they don’t have a substratum that differs from
negative and positive microvita. But all microvita have
one and the same substratum, consciousness, which is
why the presence of neutral microvita will not answer
specific questions. If neural microvita do have angular
momentum and spin, just like the other denominations, they don’t make a difference too.
Moreover microvita don’t have mass, so they also don’t
have angular momentum. This could mean that such
spin adds something additional to already present spin.
If all microvita have no angular momentum and spin,
they follow the present atomic angular momentum and

high energy state in which all electrons are or added
on or ripped off the nucleons (in cosmology). The last

a concept of “atoms” essentially based on what we call
microvita (ultimate particles of consciousness).
In conclusion
The standard model of particle physics doesn’t provide
any rationale for conscious experience. As per common thinking, however, things that feel must be made
of things that feel (Charles Birch). Consequently, the
‘hard problem of consciousness’ (David Chalmers) remains as a challenge. In this situation, we present elementary particles with complementary objective and
subjective attributes mirroring each other. As a result,
the body-mind/mind-body problem gets resolved.

Objectivity and subjectivity need equal importance. This is achieved by mapping mental space as
clearly and distinct as it is usually done with objective
space, which can be realized by assigning all subjective entities to imaginary coordinates. Western science
is usually obsessed by the myth of objectivity, degrading subjectivity to a purely private affair. In contrast,
we present a model where objectivity and subjectivity
co-exist on equal footing: The objective has its value

After all, the concept of microvita (ultimate
particles of consciousness) can be used as the prime solution for all these dichotomies. Situated at the boundary between objective matter and subjective abstract,
we find entities that are able to act as gatekeepers, organizing our reality thereby. Being extremely small, but
also fundamental to all living forms of existence, they
have been named microvita (ultimate particles of consciousness).

Layers of Existence

It is easy to show using standard theory that if a system
starts in an eigenstate of some observable, and measurements are made of that observable N times a second, then, even if the state is not a stationary one, the
probability that the system will be in the same state after, say, one second, tends to one as N tends to infinity;
that is, that continual observations will prevent motion

that the natural course of things can be changed by the

ment (5).
In 1955, von Neumann discussed the conceptual distinction between the observed and the observing system. Thereby, he considered the general situation of a
measured object system (I), a measuring instrument
(II), and the brain of a human observer (III). His conclusion was that it makes no difference for the result of
measurements on (I) whether the boundary between
the observed and the observing system is posited between (I) and (II & III) or between (I & II) and (III).
As a consequence, it is inessential whether a detector
or the human brain is ultimately referred to as the “observer” (6).
In 1958, Heisenberg introduced a distinction between
the potential and the actual, implementing a decisive
step beyond the operational Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Heisenberg’s notion of the
actual is related to a measured event in the sense of the
Copenhagen interpretation. His notion of the potential, however, relates to the situation before measurement, which expresses the idea of a reality independent
of measurements (7).

Henry Stapp’s interpretation of quantum mechanics
profoundly builds upon a framework established by
John von Neumann (11). Therein, he concludes that
the collapse of the wave function is caused by the consciousness of the experimenter, a view further consolidated by Eugene Wigner, who designed an extension
of Schrödinger’s cat, labeled as Wigner’s friend experiment (12). All these expositions have in common to be
non-local and non-deterministic (13). Insofar, Georgiev’s second objection (14) comes as a surprise: How
is it possible to condition “… provided that the mind is
able to act only locally at the brain“, if the whole theory
is non-local. Needless to say that the ideas disseminated from this platform are also non-local.

Regarding Georgiev’s first objection (14), it is important to know that Stapp didn’t commit himself to a
definite metaphysical position. Asked about who or
what the “observer” actually is, he replied that there are
many ways to answer this question. One possibility is
that a “soul-spirit” is instrumental to specific choices,
while another is that we may eventually find a mechanical explanation for this process (15). Consequently, he

Danko Georgiev criticized Stapp’s model in two aspects:

and annihilation of around 100 per unit time interval,
we get 10-40 msec per cycle (25 to 100 cycles per second), which is well in the range of mean neuronal firing rates.
Number of observations per unit time interval
Neurons carry information by irregular sequences of
action potentials. Histograms of interspike intervals
often show skewed distributions, with a sharp leftward
edge at 4 msec, a maximum at 40-80 msec, and a rightward tail corresponding to interspike intervals of up to
300 msec. Within neuronal assemblies, neurons can
switch from unsynchronized to more or less synchronized modes.
Regarding time perception, Simon Grondin wrote in

case a single inferential plane corresponds to the physicist’s
notion of a field and that is where we begin.
When physicists define a field, it must have spatial dimensions, a time dimension and another dimension corresponding to the defining characteristic of the field. For example,
an electric field will have one dimension corresponding to
electric potential. This attribute dimension makes the field
different from other fields, such as a gravitational field, and
it corresponds to the person relativity in Brahmacakra. It is
the only attribute of the field that allows us to infer that a
field is actually present! Hence the term tanmatra is translated as inference. So when physicists attempt to visualize a
field, they first define its space, time and attribute dimensions and place these at right-angles to one another in order
to set up a co-ordinate system. Note that each dimension is
polarized, time as past-future, space as left-right, up-down,
etc and all attributes can have a positive or negative expression. This polarization generates a tension, rather as if each
of the dimensions has been stretched like a rubber band. (Or
to extend this metaphor, the entire field is like a stretched

rubber membrane, a trampoline or a drum skin.) And tension creates a potential for vibration, except that one ingredient is missing – energy. In Sarkar’s MV cosmology, the
abstract category, energy, is supplied by (A) Subjective. Thus
an inferential plane is like an ocean that fills a space and
when supplied with energy, that ocean carries waves back
and forth – it vibrates.
The above metaphor is a field view of an inferential plane.
However the metaphor is not complete unless complemented from a particle perspective. Waves do not oscillate in a
vacuum. Consider the waves that move through an ocean
of water. This is possible because the ocean consists of billions of interacting water molecules. Water molecules tend
to repel one another if pushed too close together because no
two objects like to occupy the same space. But they attract
one another when pulled a little apart. They attract because
each water molecule is polarized, that is, it has a positive
end and a negative end. By analogy, we can imagine that an
inferential plane is an ocean of billions of vanishingly small,
polarized, inferential particles. The particles must attract
otherwise an ocean wave could not maintain its integrity.
On the other hand, they must repel when pushed too close
otherwise the ocean would offer no resistance to compression.
As noted above, a narrow interpretation of the planes of
Macroscopic inferences equates them to the physical universe of the five fundamental factors and their corresponding tanmatras. In Idea and Ideology, a tanmatra is defined
as the microscopic fraction of a bhuta or fundamental factor. According to this definition, the tanmatras correspond
to the minute particles that constitute an inferential plane.
Note that these planes are not directly equivalent to the five
fundamental factors. We could, for example, imagine 15
planes of tanmatras spread through the physical universe,
one associated with ethereal factor, two with aerial factor,
and so on. But this point remains uncertain.
There are passages in Microvita in a nutshell that are consistent with this narrow physical interpretation of the planes
of inferences. However, there are other passages which justify a broader interpretation, that is, to include all the lokas
(except Satya loka) within (B) Objective. Only the Bhuloka
corresponds to the five fundamental factors.
In Idea and Ideology, one gets the impression that the term
tanmatra is applicable only to the physical universe. However in Namami Krsna Sundarum, reference is made to psychic tanmatras. And in MV in a Nutshell (1st edition p127)
Sarkar asks “What are the media of microvita ...? Tanmatras
-- inferences and ideas.” It seems that the tanmatra concept
is bursting at its physical seams! I believe that the equivalent
of tanmatras exist within all the lokas, and one of the features of Sarkar’s new cosmology is to make this explicit. The

The table divides the cosmos, including we humans, into
four fundamental categories (Sarkar calls them chambers)
that are labeled (A) Subjective, (B) Subjective (left column),
(A) Objective and (B) Objective (right column). We begin
with the objective categories simply because, being objective, they should be easier to understand! Our goal is to
increase our understanding of these categories by making
links both to Brahmacakra and to modern physics.

Table 1: The four categories of the Supreme Attributional

tanmatras of the physical world are now called inferences
and the tanmatras of the psychic worlds are ideas.
The lokas can be viewed from two perspectives. From a
particle perspective, the lokas are the objective substance,
the matter, the stuff of which the creation is composed. This
stuff is the ultimate matter, the known-I in the cosmic arena.
Mind is a substance and hence MV science promotes a substantive theory of mind. (This is the term used in the academic literature.)
From a field perspective, the lokas are huge oceans of universal waves. They are the worlds or spaces in which the
structures of the Macrocosmic mind and the microcosmic
minds are located. To quote from Idea and Ideology, “The
Cosmic Entity extends in different lokas wherein the different kosas and unit minds dwell.” Each of the lokas can
be compared to a theatrical stage. In order to watch a drama or opera, you need space, time and actors. Depending
on the size of the stage, the time available and the variety
of actors, you can view dramas having varying degrees of
grandeur and tension. The seven lokas offer a spectrum of
dramas ranging in grandeur and scale from most subtle to
most crude. But now we have to make an intuitive jump.
These six or seven stages are simultaneously co-existent. It
is as if there are six dramas happening within one theatre.
These dramas interpenetrate and interact and are interdependent. The seven lokas and the different kinds of experience they afford are the framework on which we will build a
science of MV. Conversely, MV science will eventually allow
us to develop a unified philosophy and methodology that
encompasses all the worlds we can know. This is a powerful
The lokas are created during Saincara by a process of division and compression. The first vibration or inference to be
created is the Aum vibration, the seed sound of the universe.
Here is how Shrii Yukteshvara, the guru of Yogananda, describes it. „In its different aspects, Aum presents the idea
of change, which is Time (Kala) in the Ever-Unchangeable:
and the idea of division, which is Space (Desa) in the EverIndivisible. The ensuing effect is the idea of particles – the
innumerable atoms (anu). These four – the Word (Aum vibration), Time, Space and the Atom – are therefore one and
the same and substantially nothing but mere ideas.“ (Shii
Yukteshvara, The Holy Science)
The lokas can be divided and compressed because they are
particulate. We can imagine that when a loka is compressed
its constituent inferential particles will come closer together. However there will come a point where no further compression appears to be possible and something has to give.
Nature finds a way out of this dilemma by suddenly creating
a new space having its own newly created attribute. Some of
the particles escape into the new space. And so the process
continues, with new attribute-spaces being created within
the previous spaces. The kind of wave that can be transmitted through a space depends on its degree of compression

and on the nature of its constituent particles.
Note that the initial number of inferential particles remains
constant. They just get distributed through different inferential spaces as these become available due to compression.
We can draw an analogy between the compression of the
lokas and the phase change phenomenon known to physics. A small change in compression suddenly generates a
new phase or loka having different properties. For example,
when steam is gradually cooled, there is a sudden phase
change at 100 degrees and the resulting water has different
properties from the steam. Thus the lokas can also be viewed
as different phases of matter or substance. And between
any two phases there is always a boundary. The division of
the lokas into innumerable parts gives rise to innumerable
phase boundaries. Many important phenomena take place
at phase boundaries both in Brahmacakra and in physics. In
particular, when an object or wave hits a boundary, it can be
reflected, refracted or some of both. The notions of reflection and refraction appear again and again in MV science.
The term is relevant only at a boundary between different
planes of inference or phases of matter.
There is much more that could be said about the Objective
B category. See for example the section “Making Waves“ in
the [Appendix]. But now it is time to consider Objective A.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 60

(A) Objective - Planes of microcosmic and Macrocosmic
The planes of microcosmic and Macrocosmic propensities
correspond to the kosas and their corresponding propensities. Sarkar translates kosa as shell. The translation is significant - it implies a spherical shell offering coverage to something inside. We will return to this. The Macrocosmic kosas
are created during Saincara and the microcosmic kosas during Prati-saincara. The early chapters of Idea and Ideology
do not mention the kosas. However in a later chapter we
read: “In the extroversial Saincara process citta gradually
crudifies under the influence of static Prakrti, till the crude
solid is created. This process of crudification of citta, having
a coordination of Mahattattva and Aham’tattva, is divided
into five stages known as kosas.” The properties of the different kosas are explained in some detail and there is a table
in the same chapter which relates the Macrocosmic kosas to
their corresponding lokas. (See the table on p 37 in Idea and
Ideology 7th edition for confirmation that the Macrocosm
has kosas!)
In addition, it is certain that each of the kosas can be divided into sub-kosas or sub-shells, just as the crudest loka
is divided into five fundamental factors. In other words, the
structure of the Macrocosmic kosas is likely to be complex
but a simple classification into five kosas is sufficient for our
During Prati-saincara, unit entities are created having unit
minds. The unit minds have the same kosas and attributes
as the Macrocosmic mind. The difference between a micro-

cosmic kosa and the equivalent Macrocosmic kosa lies not
in the mind stuff but in the dependence on a physical base.
Unit minds are founded on and depend on a physical base.
The Macrocosmic mind is independent of any physical base
and is indeed the creator of the physical universe. This distinction is explained at length in Idea and Ideology.
Because unit entities are founded on a physical base it is easy
to forget that they have a corresponding mind. The idea I
want to develop here is that during evolution, not only does
unit mind expand but unit physical base also becomes much
broader, and sophistication takes place in a corresponding
manner. . It is easier to get the idea across with diagrams and
I have a Powerpoint presentation to do this. Here I will rely
on words.
Consider the hierarchical sequence atom - cell - human being - social system. It can also be viewed as an evolutionary
sequence that proceeds by the synthesis of billions of parts
to become a whole. The forward direction is synthetic, the
reverse direction analytic. At each transition, there is a sum
of parts – but also an emergent part that could not have been
predicted from the properties of the parts alone. If we only
see the physical base, the emergent part remains obscure. In
fact, the evolutionary sequence just described also involves
the unfolding of different layers or kosas of unit minds. We
can write the evolutionary sequence as a series of equations:
1. many atoms >> living cell + crude mind (kamamaya
2. many cells (and their kamamaya kosas) >> human being
+ subtle mind (manomaya kosa)
3. many humans (+ manomaya kosas) >> social system +
intuitional mind (atimanasa kosa)
The kosa shown at the right side of each equation is the
‘something new’, the emergent entity that arises from the
coming together of the many parts. It is tempting to speculate that the sequence can be extended. Why not:
4. many social systems (and their atimanasa kosas) >> a
higher order system ???
+ aesthetic mind (vijinanamaya kosa)
Thus the evolutionary process during Prati-saincara creates
unit entities on all scales of magnitude. We can get a feeling
for these entities by thinking about their physical base. The
physical base of a kamamaya kosa is a living cell. The physical base of a manomaya kosa is a human body. The physical
base of an atimanasa kosa is, I believe, a solar system. The
physical base of a vijinanamaya kosa could be a galaxy and
the physical base of the one hiranmaya kosa would be the
entire physical universe.
In our part of the universe we are aware only of taking the
first steps in the building of a collective mind. That is, the
atimanasa kosa is only just beginning to unfold with our
solar system as its physical base. This is in accord with the
principles of ecological energetics, the notion of Gaia and
some comments in Microvita in a Nutshell concerning the
effect of sunlight on the human mind. Note that the lower

levels of mind continue to unfold as the higher levels unfold.
In the early stages of evolution, the Macrocosmic kosas perform the necessary higher functions for the primitive unit
entities. As evolution advances, the unit entities take over
more and more of the functions of the Macrocosmic kosas.
At the same time, the physical body of the evolving entities
extends over a broader and broader base. Although we have
no idea what unit entities with evolved higher kosas might
be like, human beings do get glimpses of the higher kosas
(that is, the atimanasa kosa and above). These experiences
are trans-personal and trans-logical. (See Ken Wilbur “Eye
to Eye“ for a elegant exposition of these ideas.) They do not
correspond to the ordinary state of human consciousness
which is the manomaya kosa. Enrico Fermi’s description of
how he discovered the control of nuclear fission, Mozart’s
description of how he wrote a symphony, many scientist’s
descriptions of how they came to their discoveries, all point
to a higher integrating source of consciousness. The atimanasa kosa orchestrates the collective mind of a human society and thus it is possible for later historians to recognise a
zeitgeist for any particular age.
(Some terminology: western psychologists have used terms
such as conscious and sub-conscious to describe different
parts of the human mind. Although Sarkar has described
these terms as vague, he continues to use them even in MV
cosmology. For simplicity, I think of the conscious mind as
corresonding to the manomaya kosa, the psycho-spiritual
mind as corresponding to the kosas above the manomaya
kosa and the psycho-physical mind as corresponding to the
kosas below the manomaya kosa. However Sarkar makes
a distinction between the psycho-physical mind and the
physico-psychic mind. This requires more discussion.)
We know from Idea and Ideology that complex structures
composed of many parts must have two properties in order to be stable. First the sum of their interial forces must
be greater than the sum of their exterial forces otherwise
the structure would disintegrate. In addition the various
interial forces must find a common nucleus. We recognize
these properties most readily in an atom, a star and a galaxy,
but we can easily imagine that the psychic kosas of living
entities must also have interial forces that find a common
nucleus with their physical counterpart. The easiest image
is that the kosas of any one entity are concentric spherical
shells (hence the name) all finding a common nucleus in
the center of the collective structure. The psychic kosas are
standing waves just like the electron shells around an atom.
So now we can make the distinction between the kosas and
lokas. The kosas are stable standing waves within the ocean
of a loka. We know that the Atlantic ocean is not a homogenous body of water. There are circular currents and streams
distinct enough that they get a name, e.g. the Gulf Stream
. The kosas are like stable currents and eddies within the
lokas, stable enough to deserve a name. And when a kosa
completely surrounds a structure this is referred to as en-

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 61

doplasmic coverage. Thus the terms kosa and endoplasmic
coverage are relevant only to stable living entities. When an
entity dies, its structure disintegrates and its endoplasmic
coverage disappears. (Needs workshops to ascertain which
happens first)
To sum up, the (A) Objective of MV cosmology refers to
all the microcosmic entities and the Macrocosmic entity.
There is a complex hierarchical and interwoven relationship
between all these entities. The planes in this case refer to
the kosas. The kosas of the microcosmic entities rest on a
physical base, but the kosas of the Macrocosmic entity are
independent. In other respects the kosas of the microcosms
and the Macrocosm are similar. In particular they have the
same kinds of propensities, attributes and values.
The best way to view the relationship between inferences (B
Objective) and propensities (A Objective) is to use a simple
particle physics model. Recall that there are two kinds of
physical particle, matter particles and force particles. All
matter particles have attributes known as charges or quantum numbers. The electron, for example has electric charge.
We know that like charges repel and unlike charges attract.
This interaction at a distance is mediated by force particles.
In the case of electric charge, the force particle is a light
particle (photon). According to this model, the propensities are like particle charges and the inferences are like force
particles. For every particle charge, there is a corresponding
force particle. For every propensity, there is a corresponding
Now let us take the model more literally. Let us hypothesise
that all the kosas have two kinds of particle. The inferential
particles were described previously and are the fine structure of the lokas and kosas. They are created during Saincara and remain the fundamental particulate stuff of creation. They are the tanmatras of Brahmacakra and the force
particles of modern physics. However there is another kind
of particle which we may call a citta particle. We may compare citta particles to the matter particles of physics, such
as electrons and protons. They are transitory, that is, they
can be created, destroyed and converted to other particles.
Citta particles have mass (potential energy or samskara)
and wonts (propensities) which correspond to the charges
of physical matter particles.
Unit entities are attracted to one another or repelled depending on the net effect of all their propensities in their
different kosas. These attractions and repulsions are mediated by inferential particles. Different citta particles can presumably be combined into more complex psychic structures
in the same way that electrons, protons and neutrons can be
combined into 100 or so atoms and a bewildering array of
molecules. Hence the diversity of the human mind.
Here is a simple diagram showing the interaction between
two unit entities having propensities. The interaction involves the exchange of inferences or ideas.
Unit entity 1 (kosas+propensities) <<>> inferences

<<>>Unit entity 2 (kosas+propensities)
This equation can be visualized as two persons throwing a
ball to one another. The ball game keeps the persons standing not too close together but not too far apart. The propensities must be complementary. When one throws the other
must catch. You can adapt the metaphor as required. Two
big people can throw a heavier ball than two small people!
There is a close connection between the mass of a physical particle and the combination of charges that it has. Protons with electric and color charge have a mass more than
a thousand times that of an electron which has only electric charge. By analogy, we may suppose that there is a close
connection between psychic propensities (vrttiis) and samsakras. Samskaras are the psychic equivalent of potential
To close this section, recall the three relativities, time, place
and person. We can get a little deeper insight into the person
relativity. Consider a proton and a neutrino both emitted by
the sun traveling towards planet earth. The proton hits the
earth’s outer atmosphere and is immediately buffeted on all
sides and eventually halted in its path. The neutrino on the
other hand passes right through the earth and out the other
side as if nothing was there. Why? Because the proton has
many charges which allow it to interact with many other
particles while the neutrino has few charges and does not
interact with other particles. Put another way, the universe
looks a very different place to the proton and neutrino because they have different propensities. They have different
particle personalities. At the heart of the person relativity
lies the existence of propensities and their associated samskaras.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 62

(A) and (B) Subjective
And now the hard bit - the subjective components of Table
1. There are two subjective entities: (A) Subjective is labeled Knower-I and is responsible for infusing energy into
the lokas and kosas. (B) Subjective is the Doer-I and has its
origins at the finest particulate level of consciousness – in
the Berlin meeting, we called them the fine crystals of Consciousness. The sense of agent or doer-I attributed to any
structure has its origins in the collectivity of MV that make
up the structure. The following difficult passage states that
the Knower-I and Doer-I have their objective Known-I and
Done-I counterparts.
“In the cosmic arena, in the cosmic stratum, if we try to dissociate what we feel or what we conceive or what we perceive
into the ‘knower’ and ‘known’ portions, the cosmos in the
physical level is the ‘doing’ entity in the physical level and is
microvita; and the ‘done’ portion is the world of physicality.
And the ‘knowing’ faculty in the cosmic level is the supreme
cause or the subtlest form of energy, and the ‘known’ portion or the ‘known’ counterpart is the psychic and psychospiritual worlds”. (Quoted from “Matter and Abstract”, elec-

tronic 6th edition but is no different from third edition of
MV book.)
In the Berlin workshops, we adopted the following interpretation of the above passage. The physical universe can be
divided into a doing entity, microvita and a done part, the
world of physicality. And the remaining part of the cosmos,
the psychic and psycho-spiritual worlds, can be dissociated into a knowing faculty (the Supreme cause and subtlest
form of energy) and a known counterpart. However both
(A) Objective and (B) Objective have physical and psychic
parts. So more generally it appears as if knower-I and doer-I
are active in both objective chambers.
This more general interpretation is supported by a passage
starting at the bottom of page 139 [MVINS]. Both microvita
and energy are active in the planes of propensities and in the
physical planes of inferences. We interpreted this to mean
that A and B Subjective are both active in the planes of propensities and inferences. However energy is more active in
the physical planes of inferences and MV are more active in

the planes of propensities. Even within the physical universe
it is observed that energy is more active in the cruder levels
of matter, than the subtle. Nuclear energy is, for example,
far more powerful than chemical energy. And chemical
energy (the world of electro-magnetism) is more powerful
than gravitational energy. So we can imagine that energy
becomes less active (less powerful ?) as we pass up through
the lokas. Microvita, on the other hand, become more active. How is this possible? Because MV have the backing of
conscience and presumably intelligence. A man can move a
large rock with his bare hands only with great difficulty. But
with judicious application of a lever, it becomes an easy task
not requiring much energy.

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 63

Table 2 is an attempt to integrate all this information. There
are four causal flows from the subjective side to the objective side. The four categories of the Supreme Attributional
Principle showing causal relationships.
Causal Flow 1: (A Subjective >> B Objective, Known-I) The
supreme causal entity and subtlest form of energy (A Subjective) infuses energy into the inferential oceans (B Objective) and causes them to vibrate with major waves. Without
this infusion of energy, the objective universe would be inert. When energy comes in direct contact with the world of
physicality, it is converted into so many different forms of
energy, such as magnetic, electrical etc. But the same energy
can also create different psychic worlds (we interpreted this
to mean the higher lokas of B Objective). The causal connection between A Subjective and B Objective is explicitly
stated at the top of p156 [MVINS].
Causal Flow 2: (A Subjective >> A Objective, KnownI) There appears to be only one passage that describes
this causal flow. “And if after passing through the Cosmic
‘Known’ Entity it [energy] comes down towards the planes
of cosmic or individual propensities, its movement is towards crude, towards crudification. But if it moves towards
the cosmic cognitive faculty it [energy] is converted into
psycho-spiritual movement, and finally spiritual movement
or into the Spiritual Entity.” [MVINS, p 142] The relationship between propensities and samskara (potential energy)
has already been discussed above.
Causal Flow 3: (B Subjective >> B Objective, Done-I) Microvita travel through the media of inferences, that is they
travel through the planes of inferences and when they do
so, they generate waves much as a boat leaves a wave as it
sails through the ocean. These are known as sub-waves.
Sub-waves are super-imposed on the major waves rather
like ripples on the surface of the ocean. There is a very close
relationship between MV and tanmatras which deserves
more thought.
Causal Flow 4: (B Subjective >> A Objective, Done-I) Microvita help to express or suppress the propensities of B Objective. This effect is made explicit in [MVINS]. When MV

pass through the expressed world of done, they can move
in two directions. If they move from a subtler to a cruder
plane, there is crudification of the structure – for example
human being. But if they move toward a subtler plane, this
has a positive or spiritually uplifting effect on the structure. Consider the propensity for sweet tasting food such as
icecream. Microvita create the carbon atoms and molecules
in our taste buds, that enable the propensity for sweetness
to be satisfied.
It is now time to discuss MV in more detail.
(B) Subjective - Doing principle - Microvita
I believe we can say the following about microvita with
enough certainty that these statements deserve to be part of
a standard model.
1. A single microvitum is particle- or point-like. It occupies
space in theory but not in practice.
2. MV are fundamental particles. “Microvitum is the minutest entity.” That is, a single microvitum has no internal
structure in the same way that an atom does. Note that the
electron particle also appears to occupy no space and has no
internal structure.
3. Carbon atoms and “all other kinds of atoms are the creation of microvita”. “.. when billions of microvita get solidified, a carbon atom is formed.” Note that these two statements do not necessarily mean that an atom is literally
composed of MV. The following quote suggests that there
is a dynamic equilibrium between MV and matter. “MV are
the initial stage of matter. Although they are matter, they are
very very subtle. All of a sudden, microvita are transmuted
into matter and matter is transmuted into microvita.“
4. Despite 2, microvita have a subtle part and a cruder part.
“Microvita are a happy blending of matter and idea”. These
should not be thought of as separable parts. The subtler part
is closer to idea and the cruder part is closer to matter. Since
atoms are a collective form of MV, they also have the same
crude and subtle parts. We may think of MV as transducers.
A transducer converts one kind of energy into another, e.g.
electricity into heat or heat into electricity. A microvitum is
a matter transducer. It converts the idea of a matter particle
into a realisation of that matter particle. The concepts in 3
and 4 can be represented thus:
Idea >> Microvitum <<>> Matter
Note the reversible relationship between MV and matter.

point of view of particle physics, microvita could account
for recently observed and puzzling non-local effects, that is,
an apparent binding between well separated particles that
cannot be explained in terms of the known force fields and
that seems unconstrained by the speed of light.
6. The extraordinary mobility of microvita described above
is however only within the physical universe. Sarkar makes
a distinction between two kinds of microvita, positive and
negative. The distinction is based on their mobility through
the kosas and by corollary through the chakra system of
the human body. Negative microvita “move in the range of
physicality and touch the arena of the psychic world, but
they cannot cross the threshold of the psychic world.” I interpret this to mean that negative microvita are confined to
the bhuh and bhuvah lokas and cannot cross into the svah
loka (manomaya kosa). “Positive microvita move freely in
the physical and psychic worlds, and touch the border of the
spiritual world, but cannot cross the threshold of the spiritual world.” I interpret this to mean that positive microvita
can move in all the physical and psychic kosas but cannot
cross into the satya loka.
These limitations to the movement of microvita also have
their corollary in the human chakra and glandular system.
Microvita can move freely through most of the human body,
glands and sub-glands. They affect “almost each and every
atom of the human structure”. However, negative microvita
“cannot influence any portion of the body above the pituitary gland.” Positive microvita are able to function above
the pituitary gland “but cannot touch the pineal gland.”
From the point of view of the chakra system, both negative
and positive microvita function directly up to the physicopsychic plexus (associated with the thyroid). However, negative microvita “cannot go directly beyond the jurisdiction
of this plexus.” Positive microvita on the other hand, can

5. From the point of view of standard physics, microvita are
highly mobile. They face no hindrance that normal physical
particles face. In particular, some of them (if not all) must
move faster than the speed of light. Sarkar gives the example
of MV that caused the flu epidemic after WW1. From the

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 64

function directly up to and including the lunar plexus and
up to the occult plexus (Guru chakra) but cannot go beyond
the occult plexus - “it cannot touch the macro-propensive
plexus”. The following table attempts to summarise this information. The upward arrows indicate that positive microvita are pro-psychic and prefer to move upward through the
kosas. The downward arrows indicate that negative microvita are pro-matter and prefer to move downward through the
kosas. Note that the lower glands and plexi have not been
7. A microvitum requires a medium in which to propagate
and that medium is an inferential plane or in the language
of physicists, a field. Microvita can be detected because their
movement within a medium or field creates waves within
that medium or field. (See [MVINS], p 69) It is possible for
their movement to be in more than one plane simultaneously. “Mobility means movement through a medium or
media. There may be more than one medium, that is, there
may be many media at a time in the same movement.” This
statement is ambiguous. Can a single microvitum move in
multiple media simultaneously? I think a simpler interpretation is that different MV require different media, so when
a collectivity of MV move, they coordinate their movement
through multiple media or planes or fields. A practical example: a proton has multiple charges (electric charge, color
charge etc) and moves through several force fields at the
same time.
We now have to distinguish two kinds of waves. The major
or controlling wave is that associated with the total inferential plane and its ocean of inferential particles. By contrast,
microvita generate sub-waves or subsidiary waves within
the inferential ocean, rather like ripples on the surface of an
ocean. See p 69 for more detail on the relation between the
major and sub-waves.
8. MV do not move around in isolation. Like the physical
particles of science, they combine together in a collective
form. In fact it is useful to imagine MV combining into
structures the same way that atoms combine to form a
myriad elements, molecules, macro-molecules etc. The relevant passage in Microvitum in a Nutshell is a discussion
about heterogeneity versus homogeneity. (p 18-19) A variety of atoms can combine to a form a particular compound.
The internal structure of the compound is heterogeneous
but its external properties are homogenous. For example,
the elements which compose a compound will have different melting and boiling points. But the compound formed
from those elements will have its own distinct melting and
boiling points.
The situation with combinations of microvita is likely to be
more complex because the numbers are so large. If billions
of MV constitute a single atom, and these are concentrated
in the nucleus, the internal structure is likely to be complex.

And it appears as if carbon atoms, for example, can externally have the same chemical bonds, but their constituent
MV are quite different. See the [Appendix] for a model of
the atom as an open system. For now it is necessary to remember that two atoms may appear the same externally but
internally they are composed of different MV. The systems
which contain those atoms will be affected accordingly.
A final word on MV as a collectivity. “The collective body
of microvita is another name of carbon atom. Carbon atom
is another name of so many microvita with so many specialities, with so many characteristics. The collective body of
microvita is the collective ‘I’ feeling maintaining a relationship with the physical body.” (p 57) The point here is that
MV make the link between objective matter and the subjective sense of self. And for human beings, sense of self is not
located in some part of the brain but rather is embedded
deeply in every atom of the body.
9. There are three kinds of MV varying in subtlety. “So these
microvita may be broadly divided into three categories --”.
The phrasing indicates an entire spectrum of microvita
ranging from most crude to most subtle but it is convenient to distinguish three major groups in the same way
that we divide the spectrum of mind into five kosas. Indeed
it is probable that the three categories of microvita can be
mapped to the kosas.
Category 1 - Crude Microvita: They “move in ethereal
space”. That is, they move through the space of the physical
universe and we may associate them with the Bhuloka and
the unit annamaya kosa. They “come within the range of a
highly developed microscope”. A microscope in this case
could mean a cyclotron or tunneling electron microscope
for example. Crude microvita are “instrumental in emanating life throughout the cosmos.” Crude microvita are “the
initial stage of matter”.
Category 2 - Subtle Microvita: Do not move in physical space
but rather in psychic space. They “come within the scope of
our perception as a result of their actional vibrations”. They
“function within the world of perception through inferences.” I suggest that we may associate these microvita with
the kamamaya kosa. As a specific example, Sarkar refers to
seven categories of MV known as Yaksas. Yaksas appear to
be the luminous bodies referred to in Brahmacakra. Yaksas
are not individual MV, so they are not fundamental entities in cosmology. Rather they are bodies composed of innumerable MV - a collective form of MV.
Category 3 - Subtler Microvita: These “move in supra-psychic space”. They come within “the scope of a special type
of perception which is actually the reflection of conception
within the range of perception in a limited sphere.” This difficult phrase is perhaps explained in a later passage. These

Microvita Special Edition - Pag. 65

microvita “function directly within the subtler realm ... that
is, within the human mind.” I suggest that we may associate
these microvita with the manomaya kosas and above.
In my opinion, one of the difficulties in understanding MV,
is that Sarkar sometimes appears to be talking about MV in
general when he is referring to only one category of them.
For example, the statement that “MV are the initial stage
of matter” in point 3 above, could easily be interpreted as
if all MV are the initial stage of matter. Again the sentence
“microvita move through tanmatras, that is, the inferences
of sound, touch, form, taste and smell” could easily be interpreted as if all MV are carried through tanmatras. However
elsewhere we read, “... in the case of subtler microvita, they
may move through ideas”. This appears to be a reference to
category 3 microvita.
So we have to take great care about over-generalisation from
any one passage. The three categories of MV clearly do not
all have the same properties. Disagreements between us
about a standard model will most often have their origin in
this problem.
10. MV as living entities: Similar to the over-generalisation
difficulty mentioned in point 9, it is easy to confuse Sarkar’s
statements about individual MV versus MV in a collectivity. It is not always clear how he is using the term. A single
microvitum has no internal structure. We may take it to
be a fundamental entity. And yet microvita are also living
systems which are born, divide and die. Obviously an individual microvitum cannot be a protoplasmic system in the
usual sense. The easiest way to reconcile such difficulties is
to decide for a particular sentence, whether Sarkar is talking
about MV as individual particles or in their collectivity.
Protoplasm, for example, is a collective body of MV. One
of the attributes of living protoplasm is to divide. This fissiparous tendency has it origin in a particular type of component microvitum within the collective. It is the collective
body of MV which divides, and not that a single microvitum becomes two. Sarkar is forcing us to conceptualise protoplasmic cells, viruses and biochemical molecules as collections of MV. We will never understand living systems and
disease at the molecular and atomic level. We must go down
to the fundamental MV level.
11. MV and propensities: It was suggested above that the
matter – force particle relationship in modern physics is a
useful model for understanding the propensity-inference
relationship. A propensity is a tendency or urge or desire
or wont. The negative electric charge of an electron is a propensity. It manifests as a desire to move towards a positive
charge and the desire can be neutralised by merging with
a positively charged particle. An electron is also a store of
potential energy. In fact all particle charges are associated
with stores of energy. In addition, all point charges are continually emitting and absorbing virtual force particles. And

finally, from a field perspective, a point charge warps the
space around it. Some physicists have modeled the electron
as a mini-black hole in which the density of an electric field
approaches infinity.
These ideas may be useful models for understanding vrttis (“propensities of the mind“). I imagine that vrttiis are
point like charges associated with the psychic structures
of the kosas. Vrttiis cause a person to be attracted towards
some kinds of food and some kinds of friends and not others. People (and all psychic entities) interact with one another through the exchange of ideas and inferences in the
same way that physical particles interact with one another
through the exchange of force particles or tanmatras. We
can imagine that every vrtti is associated with a store of potential energy and every vrtti exchanges inferences or ideas
with its environment or with other vrtti points. Here are
two quotes that you may or may not see as consistent with
this model of vrttis (propensities) and tanmatras (inferences
and ideas).
“In the human mind various thoughts are constantly emerging and dissolving. Behind these psychic phenomena are
the underlying propensities which are primarily related to
the reactive momenta of human beings. Propensities are
formed according to one’s reactive momenta ...“ (p 123) “In
human beings and other animals, some propensity or other
is either activated or slowed down by the impact of different
inferences at various stages.“ (p 153)
Here is the model in words:
Samskara (Potential energy) >> Propensity <<>> ideas and
There are three types of vrttis, pro-physical, psychic and
pro-spiritual. “All the fifty vrttis are affected by positive or
negative microvita.“ (p 59) Microvita appear to act on the
human mind through the plexi or chakra system. In particular, “Positive microvita create sentient propensities and
negative microvita creates static propensities.“ (p 121)
12. MV offer a new theory of disease. Many diseases that
current medical science says are caused by viruses are better explained as being caused by MV. MV are not viruses.
Rather, there is a confusion about the causal mechanism.
Modern science recognises several major categories of disease causing mechanism. 1. Various micro-organisms such
as germs and viruses. 2. Genetic defects. 3. Aging. 4. Nutritional diseases. 5. Psycho-somatic diseases. Superficially,
MV theory looks like an extension of the germ theory of
disease. However, it is possible that
a MV theory of disease will help to
unify some of the above categories.
