5. As to this they say, “How does this sevenfold (Person, the fire-altar,) correspond to this Vedi (measuring ninety steps)?” Well, there are these ten vital airs in a man, four limbs, and the trunk as the fifteenth; in the same way in the second, and in the same way in the third (man),—in six men this makes ninety; and one man remains over. Now, (that seventh) man is fivefold—hair, skin, flesh, bone, and marrow (fat), and this Vedi also is fivefold—the four regions (quarters), and the body (of the altar) as the fifth: thus this sevenfold (altar) does indeed correspond to this Vedi.
