Use of the term, adhva, to describe the steps of differentiation -- from the universe being a state of unity where words and objects are indistinguishable -- the first adhva is establishing a polarity between varna, an index measure of an object’s functional form, and kala, an aspect of creativity. The next adhva is considered another step in a process of "creative descent" where mantra and tattva are polarized.
Adhva may also refer to a type of yoga ruled by Vedic algorithms that establish a strict identity between binary and decimal numbers. This theory of yoga and interpretation of the Vedas states that the seemingly poetic and mystical forms of verse that the Vedas contain can actually be read as digital formulae.
Another use of adhva is to describe a path where suddha adhva is considered the intrinsic path, or the path of “supra-mundane manifestation,” while asuddha adhva is the course of "mundane manifestation."
