Puran  Skanda Purana

Puran is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the ANCIENT and ETERNAL quality involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Puran comprises the specific sets of laws of Nature that are engaged in promoting the quality of Devata — the process of observation, the dynamism of observing in the witnessing quality of Rishi — within the Samhita level of consciousness, providing a structure to the eternally silent, self-referral, self-sufficient, fully awake state of consciousness, which is intimately personal to everyone. (complete table of qualities)

In the physiology, Puran, the total potential of the process of observation, is found in the 'great intermediate net', which monitors and processes the inputs and outputs of the central nervous system; and provides a corrective response on the basis of intended action, individual needs, environmental demands, and actual performance.

For each of the 3.5 million motor neurons, participating in the display of action, there are an average of 400,000 neurons in the great intermediate net . . .
