Abhautika (अभौतिक):—[tatpurusha compound] m. f. n.

(-kaḥ-kī-kam) Not produced by the coarse or visible elements, intellectual.—In the Sāṅkhya philosophy abhautikasarga is one of the creations or evolutions of Prakṛti or Matter, comprising the evolutions called liṅgasarga ‘evolution of mind’ and bhāvasarga ‘evolution of mental affections’, the other evolution of Prakṛti being bhautikasarga or bhūtasarga, produced by the coarse elements and comprising eight classes of celestial beings (see brāhma, prājāpatya, saumya, aindra, gāndharva, yākṣa, rākṣasa, paiśāca)—in whom prevails the quality sattva—, five species of brute creation (tame animals, wild animals, birds, reptiles and immovable substances)—in whom prevails the quality tamas—, and the species man, with the predominant quality rajas; ‘both, the abhautika—and the bhautika—evolutions, comprise therefore sixteen evolutions of Matter’. [This is, in my opinion, the bearing of Gaudapāda's concluding remark on the Sāṅkhya-Kār. v. 54: evamabhautikaḥ sargo liṅgasargo bhāvasargo—cfr. v. 52—bhūtasargo daivamānuṣatairyagyona—cfr. v. 53— ityeṣa pradhānakṛtaḥ ṣoḍaśasargaḥ]. E. a neg. and bhautika.
