Ultimate, and unknown by any type of mind, pure, conscious Awareness is a state wherein The Word has already merged in Brahman. The seeds for all of this multifarious legerdemain of maya lie in the second stage of The Word, as seeds in the Great Mind (Mahat) The third and fourth stages of manifestation see the appearance of what is subtle and gross coming forth from the causal second state.
