Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (philosophy)

Pratibhāta (प्रतिभात) refers to a “manifestation”, according to the Utpaladeva’s Vivṛti on Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā 1.5.8-9.—Accordingly, “Even a sense organ has already been experienced before [being inferred]; for this [sense organ] is not inferred in its own specific form, but rather, as a [mere] generality. This is what [I] say in the Vṛtti [with the words] ‘a cause that is a mere indeterminate thing’. The object [inferred in this inference of the sense organs] is a generality [that simply consists in] being a cause; [and this generality] was manifested before (pūrva-pratibhāta) [the inference] in the cognition that the seed is a cause of the sprout, [or] in the cognition that clay for instance is a cause of the pot and [other such objects]. [...]”.
