Verse 7.31.3

चिद्रूपं सर्वमेतच्च चिदच्छा गगनादपि ।
चिच्चिनोति चिदेवातो नैतत्किंचन कुत्रचित् ॥ ३ ॥

cidrūpaṃ sarvametacca cidacchā gaganādapi |
ciccinoti cidevāto naitatkiṃcana kutracit || 3 ||

All this is verily the form of the Intellect, represented in a different garb. The intellect is rarer than the pure air, but collects and condenses itself as the solid world, and recognizes itself as such; wherefore the world is no other than the consolidated intellect, and there is nothing beside this anywhere.
