Thank you for these clarifications. Esp. the inverted tree explanation was very helpful.
It will be interesting to see if/when a more detailed description of the appearance of species according to the Sankhyite school is formulated whether it will resemble the current common theory of some religionists who say that evolution as explained by modern science does basically occur (w/one body giving birth to a modified, more evolved body), but that the “hand” of God is invisibly the guiding factor at each step of the mechanism—that is, the biological transformations/mutations would not occur on their own or “by chance.”
