Everything that occurs exists potentially in its cause. Creation is produced simply through a recombination of the constituents of the uncreated (avyakta). By analogy, a statue pre-exists in the stone; curds in milk. Specifically, creation involves a re-organizing of the three guṇas which exist in perfect equilibrium in the primal ‘stuff’ (mūlaprakṛti) of creation. All change occurs through the interaction of these three guṇas.
