No, for the same grammatical reasons as explained.

That is how praviviktabhuk  is understood as jIva who differentiates
> himself,
No, a jIva who experiences subtle objects which are different from gross
objects. A jIva being different is not a meaning that can be arrived at in
the given samAsa.

You're right, but that meaning doesn't fit the jIva being different but
experiencing something different.
