RE: [Kapila muni's sAnkhyA]

Dear Sri Hari,
   Thanks for a detailed mail on this subject. Please note 
that I wasn't in any way advocating sAnkhyam. My question 
was different. I wanted to know why is there a contrast 
between Kapila muni's svarUpam and His theory ? He being 
Sriman Narayana amsam why did he postulate a theory that 
rejects paramAthmA? Is it a foible that he was an amsam 
of Sriman Narayana ? Or
   Is it that he was just another controversial sage like 
Sage Parasurama who in spite of being Sriman Narayana amsam 
engaged in atrocities to kshathriyAs ?
