it could detect an intruder and separate him from a maintenance engineer, it had various measures to reject intruders and dispose of their bodies, and to absorb and distribute substances needed for its operation – things like oil and grease to keep moving parts ready to operate. All this functions are functions of prana, but we all generally agree that the system is not alive and those who built it long time ago are dead. And yet “vestiges of prana” are still there.
This is not vestiges of prana. It is actually prana. It is called apana which is the ability to excrete the unwanted material out of the body. And samana is the force of keeping the system in a balanced state — i.e. prevent it from deviating it to one of the extremes where it could destruct.
If you don’t like this word, how about “projection of one’s will” – because that’s what prana does. These days everything is becoming automated and so acts apparently independently, but according to the will of its creators, even though we all understand it’s dead matter.
It is not merely the will of the creator, but also the application of a force by a living being to make a change. For example, if you want to turn on the light in your room, you have to push a button. The electricity is also flowing because there is a powerhouse that has been started. Even in the case of a nuclear reactor, you have to insert the uranium rods to start the reaction. That is prana.
A quantum system is always in a ‘stationary state’. Why it changes state is not known in science. However, we are able to probabilistically predict the change of state, although not explain it. It is like saying that a bus arrives at a bus stop a certain number of times in a day but who is driving the bus and how the bus is moving is not explainable. That change is caused by prana. But it is not the prana in a dead body. It is the prana in a living body — it may be demigods.
Whose prana? That is a real question. Most of the time we are just instruments of projecting someone else’s will, often the will of personalities who are not even alive in a common sense – like that artifact in a cave was guarded by its deity and attending priests just carried out the deity’s plans, which were originally manifested through the ancient engineer. Likewise, when a potter dies the “deity” of pots still keeps his creations intact, but then the “deity” of clay might say “my prana is weakened, it’s time to disintegrate” and prana of the deity of pots won’t be able to keep it together because clay is not cooperating.
That is a mischaracterization of how change occurs. A wooden chair will be eternal if there was nothing acting on it to break it or wear it out slowly. It is always someone using the chair, or weather (under the control of demigods), or a person who destroys the chair. Just as creation is the act of prana destruction is also an act of prana. Both are conscious activities. But the idea that the chair decays by itself is wrong. It is always a conscious entity that creates and decays it.
There’s obvious difference between these “vestiges of prana” present in dead matter and prana of the living beings, and this needs to be investigated. There should be a theory of it.
The point of Cosmic Theogony is that there is nothing happening automatically. It is always under a conscious will, and prana is acting under that will. Dead matter is inert. In fact, all matter is inert. It exists as a possibility. It becomes a reality by a combination of cognition, relation, and emotion. That combination acts under free will and caused by prana.
That fact that nothing ever moves but paths are assembled as a trajectory of possibilities converted to reality doesn’t really matter here. It’s like every computer operating system has a hardware abstraction layer, HAL, so that all programs in the computer treat printers, speakers, hard drives, etc. as pieces of software even though they are not – thanks to HAL which flawlessly converts analog electrical connections to their digital representations.

It matters because even if there are hardware and software present, the computer doesn’t work unless it is powered on. That power on is the flow of electrons, but electrons are not supposed to move from one state to another. They are supposed to remain in their ‘stationary states’. They are moving because there is prana — i.e. a conscious being behind this movement.
