Right, so the patur remains patur, and the chayav now had teruma taken. Why was the taking of teruma ineffective?

Ah, I hadn't got to Terumos yet, so I didn't know that mishna. :) But it just pushes the question to there. Why can't you take teruma from chayav on patur?

comment Mishna Demai 5:11: why can't you take teruma from vadai on demai?
I don't see how you can read that he took the entire vadai and made it teruma for the demai. Then the mishna (or Kehati at least!) should have denoted somehow that the reason it does not work is because of that technicality that you can't declare an entire crop as teruma. According to what you're saying, if he only took part of the vadai as teruma it should be good - but that's not what the mishna says. In several places Kehati states that מעשר מן החייב על הפטור is ineffective, in general, not just when you exhaust the חייב. Why is that?

For the record, the Rosh defines "blood that moved" specifically as having left the meat altogether; he seems to be your primary source for your paragraph beginning "There are opinions..."

@Menachem I believe you are right. See the Tur on YD 67. Please post as an answer for credit. Thanks!

@Menachem Sounds like an interesting theory. Do you have any citations to back it up?

comment What is “blood that moved from one place to another”?
@DoubleAA You seem to be defining "poresh" as leaving the piece of meat altogether. The Shach is defining "poresh" as one drop of blood moving one millimeter within a capillary.

comment What is “blood that moved from one place to another”?
@DoubleAA So let's assume "dam eivarim" is blood in the capillaries after the heart stops pumping. What is the logic behind prohibiting blood that has "moved", while permitting blood that has remained stationary? Remember, just a few minutes ago, that blood was all moving. So when does the "lock" happen? At the moment of shechita? No way; the blood is gushing out the animal. When the heart stops beating? Technically, the animal was already dead the moment the simanim were cut. So you could have already carved up the animal and started salting it before the heart stopped...
