At first it divides into two, then into four, then eight, and so forth. It keeps multiplying in that way. Every time it doubles a consciousness appears in each of those multiples of itself, just as a candle flame can produce so many flames in the candles that are brought in touch with it. This ability to multiply is one of the amazing qualities of the soul and its associated consciousness. When the whole body is developed it’s made of many different cells and each one of those cell has its own consciousness,” Sripad Puri Maharaja explained. “One is more dominant than the other,” Rasaraja das Prabhu interjected. “Yes, one remains dominant,” Sripad Puri Maharaja confirmed then asked “Now how is that happening?
