Dualistic or Ashuddha (Impure) Consciousness

 Ordinary Dualistic Consciousness pertaons to the state of existence that Kashmir Shaivite calls the Ashuddha-tattvas or "Impure" principles or evolutes.  This is defined as existence subject to karma and reincarnation, and include physical, psychic, and even spiritual states of consciousness.  In Kashmir Shaivism this division includes occult (gods, etc) as well as ordinary dimensions of existence.  I prefer however to use "Ashuddha" to define the ordinary limited state of consciousness, as opposed to the yogically and occultly expanded consciousness and power of the adept.
