I am talking about the nail cutters, pot, ornaments, wheel etc. that we can find in even brahma vidyA pradhAna shruti texts. And brAhmaNa portions which talk comprehensively on the vidhi-nishedha and vidhAna of shrauta karma-s
The cardinal principle behind the apaurshEyatva is sabdanityatva vAda. So, even if there is *anitya prasanga* in mantra bhAga, going by the sUtra pramANa *uktaM tu sabdapUrvatvaM*, this aprastuta sabda prayOga is nitya which existed even before it's
manifestation. And hence, considered as *apaurshEya*.
Whatever names are mentioned in veda, going by the sUtra pramANa *AkhyA pravachanAt*, they are apaurshEya only.
Even the mention of vidhi & nishEdha in mantra bhAga that point towards karma kANDa
is also apaurshEya based on the sUtra *chOdanalakSanArthO dharmaH*.
So, vEda in it's entirety is apaurshEya only based on sabdanityatva vAda.
