Similarly, if one separates the beads of a rosary the idea of the rosary no longer obtains. A thing has the specific characteristic of ultimate reality when the idea of it is not lost when someone attempts to destroy or mentally split up the thing in question.

THE SALIENT features of the Vaibha~ikas' philosophical tenets will be dealt with under seven heads: (1) the five groupings of the knowable; (2) decay as a separate entity; (3) the substantiality of the three aspects of tim~; ( 4) an ineffable self; (5) the noetic as not being self-revealing and cognitive of an object; ( 6) the difference between signatum and index; and (7) an inexhaustible substance.
