In Carvaka school the four elements, earth, fire, water and air are the original principles. From these alone, when transformed into the body, intelligence is producedjust as the intoxicating power of some herbs is developed from the mixing of certain ingredients. When the body is destroyed, intelligence at once perishes also. They quote the Vedic text for this:
Springing forth from these elements itself
solid knowledge is destroyed
when they are destroyed

after death no intelligence remains.
