[From R11 :]  The subject is then understood not according to physical criteria like body or brain,   with the skull or the skin or the clothes as the boundaries,   but as a functional unit which is centered on the mind (ongoing experience), and with boundaries of the self-structure  that vary according to activity.   (The realism aspect can still be used, if desired, but only in an acknowledged as-if fashion.)

[Comment]:  A  s mentioned in the last point-- (see attached above), then -- "what is physical death then" -- a physical criterion, like body or brain or with the skull or the skin or a "cessation of physical criteria" -- but "still an ongoing experience for mind (ongoing experience)" which is centered on the mind -- (ongoing experience) "but with no boundaries of the self-structure" ---- "oneness" of the mind/soul/atoms ---- with super-soul, universe, creation, nature, atoms ---- "Atoma/Soul" as mentioned in ancient "Hindu philosophy, Vedas & in the Bhagwat Gita" & also mentioned by the following offshoots of Hindu philosophy, the Bhuddists, etc. ---- as "Poonarjanam/Reincarnation"-- mind's (ongoing experience) "but with no boundaries of the self-structure" ---- mind/soul/atoms ---- supersoul, universe, creation, nature, atoms ----Atoma/Soul/mind ---- still an ongoing experience with no self-structure ----  Self-structure  that vary according to activity. (The realism-aspect can still be used, if desired, but only in an acknowledged  as-if fashion) -- "but unacknowledged, unproven" beyond any acknowledged mind experience yet. ----
