Re: Theos-World CASS and the NOUS

Manas is a symbol of mind, mentality, or the mental plane, below the buddhic plane.
Manas as a Centre (i.e. Higher and Lower Manas)
"The manas, although only the organ of the atman, is yet the central organ of the entire conscious life; which not only as "the primary root of the five faculties of knowledge" shapes into ideas the impressions of sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch, since we "see only with the mind, hear with the mind," butstamps these ideas further as resolves of the will.  Deussen, Phil of Upanishads,p.273

The Causal Body or Karana-Sarira denotes the vehicle of the spiritual ego in the HIGHER MIND of each individual.  It is usually called the immortal soul, for it persists throughout the cycle.  To it are attached the vehicles of the personality or personal ego, on the lower planes.  THE CAUSAL BODY IS THE SEAT OF THE HIGHER TRIAD, ATMA-BUDDHI-MANAS

Buddhi or the Wisdom principle transcends the highest intellect.  It is the source of all the higher emotions and ideal qualities appertaining to Truth, Love and Wisdom.  It is described as outpouring these qualities in response to the aspirations and sacrifices of the lower consciousness.

The Buddhic body is potential and latent and only becomes active or manifest when the consciousness of the perfected ego RISES to its level and claims its inheritance - the "treasure in the heavens that faileth not...For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Luke xxi.33,34

The buddhic body is described as full of intelligence, wisdom, truth and love, to a degree IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE LOWER MIND to have any conception of.  The putting on by the saint of the "robe of glory" will introduce the soul to a state of bliss in which higher faculties and activities will be exercised without a trace of selfishness entering in.  

It is Buddhi who directs the evolution of the true Self in the human being.  The highest part of the subjective lower mind is on the fourth sub-plane of the mental plane, which causes a speedy upward movement and so accelerates the mind's progress to a better condition of being.

Anyhow enough said, references are from Dictionary of all Scriptures and Myths by G.A.Gaskell, a book I can highly recommend for any Theosophist or searcher of truth.

Finally what HPB says about NOUS, "Beyond all finite existences and secondary causes, all laws, ideas, and principles, there is an INTELLIGENCE OF MIND (vous, nous, the spirit), the first principle of all principles, the Supreme Idea on which all other ideas are grounded (Cass: a function of Parabrahman-the divine idea preceding its secondary causes or that which is manifest through Brahman), the Monarch and Law Giver of the universe; the ultimate substance from which all things derive their being and essence, the first and efficient Cause of all the order, and harmony, and beauty, and excellency, and goodness, which pervades the universe - who is called, by way of preeminence and excellence, THE SUPREME GOOD, the God over all.  He is not the truth nor the intelligence but "the father of it"

If you believe that Socrates was in touch with Parabrahman then I say full marks to Socrates.
