Re: Mundaka Upanishad question
Here the Self is the Highest Self with a capital S.
How do you know He cannot see the body when "you" are fast asleep?
Please remember -- like the haMsa we are to seperate milk from water. Not to mix up the Self from the anAtmA -- the non-Self i.e. mind, thoughts, emotions, functions of prakRuti such as seeing (eye sight), hearing, touch etc.
The eye of the eye, ear of the ear, speech of the speech is the Self (Kena Upanishad). He facilitates these functions, so that the jIva made sentient thru His Grace can see the mundane and concrete.
When He sees, He does not need visual aids like we do. He "sees" means He "knows", but also, He sees you sleep, and may put a blanket on you
Surely He knows veins and arteries and organs in and out. He does not go thru' the info serially like our brain does. The intellectual study of anatomy by the jaDa (insentient) brain is different from how the Self knows the anatomy in and out.
