८.५: १०६.१९-पार्थिवपरमाणुरूपादीनाम्पाकजोत्पत्तिविधानम् ।
The process whereby the color etc are produced in the atom of Earth by baking is as follows:
When the unbaked jar and such other things are put into contact with fire, the strokes of it (by it) bring about certain actions among the atoms composing that jar.
These actions bring about disjunctions.
From these disjunctions proceed destructions of conjunctions.
These destructions of the conjunctions of component atoms bring about the disruption of the composite substance (jar).
८.५: १०६तस्मिन्विनष्टेस्वतन्त्रेषुपरमाणुष्वग्निसम्योगादौष्ण्यापेक्षाच्छ्यामादीनाम्विनाशःपुनरन्यस्मादग्निसम्योगादौष्ण्यापेक्षात्पाकजाजायन्ते ।
On the destruction of the composite substance, the dark color of the atoms rent asunder becomes destroyed by the contact of fire by the aid of its heat. Further contact of those same atoms with fire, aided by its heat, produces in those atoms, the color which is said to be produced by baking.
८.५: १०७तदनन्तरम्भोगिनामदृष्तापेक्षादात्माणुसम्योगादुत्पन्नपाकजेष्वणुषुकर्मोत्पत्तौतेषाम्परस्परसम्योगाद्द्व्यणुकादिक्रमेणकार्यद्रव्यमुत्पद्यते ।
After this the contact of the selves with these atoms, as aided by the Adrishta (destiny) of the selves destined to experience (the effects of the jar), produces actions in the atoms in which the color has been produced by baking. This action brings about the conjunction of the atoms; and from these conjunctions proceed all the composite substances from the Diad (molecule of two atoms) and further.
In these component substances, the qualities such as Color etc. are produced in accordance with the like qualities in the cause(component atoms).
८.५: १०७नचकार्यद्रव्यएवरूपाद्युत्पत्तिर्विनाशोवासम्भवतिसर्वावयवेष्वन्तर्बहिश्चवर्तमानस्याग्निनाव्याप्त्यभावादणुप्रवेशादपिचव्याप्तिर्नसम्भवतिकार्यद्रव्यविनाशादिति ॥
The destruction of the color etc, or their production, cannot take place in the composite substance itself; as (without disruption) the fire cannot pervade over the whole of the substance, over all of its component particles inside and out. Nor would the pervasion by fire be possible by its entering into the atoms; as this would mean the disruption, or destruction of the component substance.
