अनुसंधानविवशश्चेततीन्द्रियपञ्चकम् ॥ २४ ॥

cidaṇupratibhākāśapiṇḍa eva ghanasthitiḥ |
anusaṃdhānavivaśaścetatīndriyapañcakam || 24 ||

But the shadow of the atomic intellect falling upon the empty air, becomes the solid body; which shoots forth into the five organs of sense, owing to its inquest into their five objects of form and the rest.
