    First of all we should analyse the soul. The soul is made of pure awareness. The vibrations of pure awareness are called as feelings or qualities. Therefore all the characteristic qualities are associated with the soul and are made of pure awareness.


    What is pure awareness? It is only a special form of inert energy. When we eat the food, it is oxidised by the oxygen received through the respiratory system. When the food is assimilated in the digestive system, it is oxidised by the Oxygen from the respiratory system, which is carried by the blood in dissolved state through Haemoglobin. The oxidation of food is exothermic reaction and liberates inert heat energy. This inert heat energy is converted into a special form of energy called awareness by the nervous system.


    The electricity is produced by the generator and enters the tube light. The electrical energy is converted into light, which is another new form of energy. The heat energy produced by the interaction of digestive and respiratory system is called life energy (Pranamaya kosa). When this heat energy is converted into awareness by nervous system the awareness or mind is produced (Manomaya kosa). This awareness which is in the purest state is called as the soul (or Atman). This awareness is propagated in the form of pulses and these pulses as a bundle is called as Jeeva. The bundle of pulses of awareness is called as simply Jeeva from the point of pulses, is called as Atman from the point of awareness and is also called as Jeevatman from the point of both the pulses and awareness.


    The constant propagation of pulses is called as mind (manas). The impressions of strong pulses are called as Chittam. The production of strong of pulses by the interaction of several weak pulses is called as intelligence or determination or Buddhi. The strong pulse that keeps the identity of the body is called as Ahamkara or ego. When you say the word Jeeva, it refers only to Manas, Chittam, Buddhi and Ahamkara (Antahkaranams). Therefore the soul and Jeeva together called as Jeevatma is only a special form of energy i.e., generated by the interaction of digestive, respiratory and nervous systems. Thus Jeeva representing the bundle of characteristics and Atman representing the special form of energy or Soul can be only the items of creation and not the creator. You are worried about the generation of Soul but there need not be any worry because Soul is an item of creation. In this creation there is conversion of matter into energy.


    There is conversion of one type of matter into another type of matter through a chemical reaction as done by chemists. There is also conversion of one form of energy into another form of energy as done by physicists. There is conversion of matter into energy as done by technologists and engineers. Now if the Soul is generated, what is there to worry? This topic comes under the realm of creation and is within the boundaries of the creation. Gita says that the Soul is Paraprakruti. Prakruti means creation. Para means the finest part of creation. Therefore the transformation of Soul or division of Soul or generation of Soul is only topic of science and is not a topic of spirituality. Spirituality deals with creator who is beyond the creation. Veda says ‘Annat Purushah’, which means that the Soul is produced from the food. It is conversion of matter into Soul, which is energy.

    Peace dattaswami1... interesting presentation... unfortunately I disagree that "it is conversion of matter into Soul" "Soul is produced from food"... Allow me to present a short but different view... Your Soul, Spirit and Mind are a combination of You... And You (the mental capacity) are an immeasurable particle of Life... Assigned by THE MOST HIGH (that is neither a person, place or thing and beyond any form of comprehension) to a specific state of Existence... in specific place in Time... We are Mental Entities in control of a Physical Body... Food is Energy or Nutrition for the Physical Body... Benevolence is Food for Thought... http://thetruthbulletin.org Peace

    Now this is my cup of tea...check out my sig...:toast::toast::toast:

    Consciousness is…….and that is all I can say of “IT”.

    It remains a mystery to science, although many experts are attempting to study, define, and explain it. One thing is certain, consciousness is much more than simple awareness, self awareness (AI), or intelligence. An iceberg can serve as the perfect object lesson in explaining the subconscious and unconscious minds of human beings.

    I think less than 10% of most icebergs is above the surface of the water (representing the conscious mind, and the ego and personality together). But the immense body of the ice is hidden beneath the surface, and it represents what is unconscious (what we don’t know about ourselves and our inner motivations, feelings, and potential abilities). This is just my opinion of what the essence of spirituality is, and the search to know our true selves, and to discover the real nature of consciousness.

    Peace!
