BC: Brahman Consciousness: The 5th State of Predominant Consciousness, characterized by the dissolution or surrender of identification with the individual I-Am or Solar Angel or Causal Soul (identified with in Pre-Brahman Unity Consciousness) into the Great Immensity, the ISness of Now, the paradoxical That-Self. In its more ripened state of Post-Brahman Unity Consciousness, the 6th State of Predominant Consciousness, That-Self expands from the Causal to include the Manas, or lower Mind, and Buddhi, or the Intellect ripened into Intuition. That-Self has then supplanted the entire tri-partite individual Mind or Soul, and is aware that it can know anything it truly desires to know.
