Let us continue with the example of an apple. Ego is an inherent factor of the mind. I or me or mine arise only because of ego. At the instance of the mind, eyes again look at the apple tree and this time more specifically for apple fruits. Organ of perception, eye conveys to the mind through cognitive faculty, sight about the availability of the apple fruit in the tree. If mind is in confusion, it refers to the intellect. Intellect confirms to the mind that it is apple. Then the mind develops desire because of the inherent ego. The desire develops in the form of tasting an apple. Now mind sends command to organs of action to get the apple. Receiving the command from the mind, feet moves towards the apple tree, hands pluck an apple and mouth eats it. The cause for the movement of legs and hands is prāṇa and its five modifications. Thus the seventeen components form the subtle body.
