The Gross Astral/Affective Reality

By Gross Astral Reality is meant here that aspect of the Astral/Affective that is closest to Gross Physical and especially the Material or Mundane Physical reality. As with all the ontological gradations, it can pertain to any level of the holarchy of existence, from psychological, individual and egoic to universal.

Sri Aurobindo (in Letters on Yoga) uses the term "physical vital" in an integral psychological context, while The Mother speaks of the "Material Vital"; this seems to be a rather more dense and inconscient level, an interface between the Lower Astral and the Physical, and responsible for things like illness, delirium, etc (external link Mother's Agenda vol.4, 6th July 1963) - Blavatsky also refers to the lower astral subplanes in this context (ref), although she also refers to "Opening of the Material Vital to the Light" and "Joyous enthusiasm in the most material vital"
