Viṣayaviṣayīnimitta (विषयविषयीनिमित्त, “dependent-substratum-based”) refers to a type of saṃyoga (lit. ‘contact’), a relation between prakṛti and puruṣa.—The contact produced between the dependent-substratum relation is called viṣayaviṣayīnimitta-saṃyoga. For example, the relation between fish (dependent) and water (substratum) is the viṣayaviṣayīnimitta-saṃyoga. The relation between prakṛti and puruṣa can not be of that type, because both of them are vibhu (all- pervasive) and as such none of these two is the substratum of the other.
Samkhya (सांख्य, Sāṃkhya) is a dualistic school of Hindu philosophy (astika) and is closeley related to the Yoga school. Samkhya philosophy accepts three pramanas (‘proofs’) only as valid means of gaining knowledge. Another important concept is their theory of evolution, revolving around prakriti (matter) and purusha (consciousness).
