But there is origination of Ether. For Scripture, which is concerned with matters transcending sense perception, is able to establish the truth even of the origination of Ether, although this be not proved by other means of knowledge.

That the non-originatedness of the Self also does not rest on its being without parts will be shown further on.--Here the Pûrvapakshin raises an objection.
