Adding to the confusion, I might mention the three upadhis. It's
said that the seven principles can be broken apart into three
functioning vehicles of consciousness -- the upadhis -- and that
any other manner of breaking them apart would result in death.
To go into this subject in any detail, though, would result in
bringing in a large amount of materials and require many pages
of writing. (Jerry S. is well aware of this -- we exchanged
article-length postings on the subject on theos-l two to three
years ago.)
