MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 12-1-Continued ...
Chapter-12. THEORY OF PERCEPTION : 1.
There is the elastic theory of the mind.
This school of thought says that the mind becomes elastic when several objects come in contact with the various senses and thus puts itself simultaneously into touch with various sense-organs or Indriyas of knowledge (Jnana-Indriyas).
When the mind comes in contact with one object and one Indriya, it contracts to a point.
This theory is exploded and refuted by the Vedantins as unsound.
There is another school of thought that says that there are different compartments or parts in the mind.
One part of the mind connects itself with one sense (Indriya), another part with a second sense and so on.
This theory is similarly blown up and discarded by the Vedantins as untenable and unsound.
