Firstly, the notion is carefully introduced in order to escape the notions which the yoga discourse – ancient or contemporary; practical or scholarly – itself has been using throughout history. Such discourses have typically signified the experiences and outcomes produced by yoga techniques’ in religious, metaphysical, romanticist, and ideological and so on contexts. Such discourses were often part of and driven by various social symbolic disputes with other social groups. I wanted to avoid this mystical and religious enveloping of the yoga outcomes and experiences – hence I turned to modern psychology and found the notion ASC to be a good alternative.
Secondly the notion ASC seems to correspond with the yoga genealogy on which I have focussed. It is a genealogy of a specific yoga current, which I am convinced is major and important in the origins of the yoga sign. However deciding this is like finding the source of the Nile: in the end it is a subjective choice. The Nile is undoubtedly a river and its one of the longest in the world – but where does it begin? Many think the source of the Nile is Lake Victoria. However Lake Victoria is in its turn fed or sourced by a range of some very large rivers. Among those should we choose the longest river or the river with the significant largest volume of water as the source of the Nile – or should we just choose Lake Victoria, as most people do?
