23. In the case of the soul that is characterized by various emotions (such as desire, etc), there are physical objects some (of which are) intimately bound to it (like the body) and some not so intimately bound (such as wealth). "These material objects are mine" so declares one (the bahir-atman) whose intellect is deluded by wrong knowledge.

24.The nature of the soul as seen by the Omniscient, is permanently associated with its quality called upayoga (which comprises knowledge and perception, par excellence). How can such a spiritual entity become a physical object? Then how can you say, "this physical object is mine?"

25. If the soul becomes matter and if the matter becomes the soul then it is possible for you, Oh! Bahir-atman to say, "this physical object is mine".
