Our human? self is an association (sambhūtih, συγγένεια, συνουσία, κοινωνία) of breaths or spirations (prāṇāḥ, αίσθήσεις, Jaiminīya Upaniṣad Brāhmana IV.7.4, cf. II.4.5), or troop-of-elemental-beings (bhūtagana) ; and as such an “elemental-self” (bhūtātman) to be distinguished logically but not really from “its immortal Self and Duke” (netṛ = ήγεμών), immanent Agent (kartṛ) and Giver-of-being (prabhūh, Maitri Upaniṣad III.2, 3, IV.2, 3, VI.7), the “Inner Man of these elemental-beings” (bhūtānām antah puruṣaḥ, Aitareya Āraṇyaka III.2.4) ; these two selves being the passible and impassible natures of a single essence.
