' The Universal Mind '...


It is true that the subject in consciousness cannot make an object of itself, cannot perceive itself, but there is in man another self which knows the subject, is aware of the subject although the subject is not aware of it.

But there is an important difference to be noted here.

First, the transcendental self does not know in the same way that the thinking self knows (by thinking self I mean the subject) for its knowledge is immediate, swifter than the swiftest computing machine.

Secondly, it is part of the universal mind, the World Mind, yet mysteriously connected with a limited human mind.
