       One clarification to my earlier mail.

sudarshan>> the "Eternal" category is Not a self contradiction.
sudarshan>> Consider it as an "irreducible axiom" which is essential to explain further
sudarshan>> Upanisadic concepts, but this axiom itself is not contradicted by anything else
sudarshan>> we know. (perception, inference, Sabda)

       What I should have said here is:

       Consider it as an "irreducible axiom" which helps to explain other 
       Upanisadic concepts, but whatever is posited due to this axiom (resultant
       or consequent concepts) are not self contradictory.

 PS: This is all with a view to coherently interpret all of the Ideas in the Upanisads
     without exclusive bias towards any one Aphorism, thereby presenting one
     non-contradictory corpus of thought.
