-Early culture and religion.-

In the beginning… was a very female sea. For four billion years on earth, all life forms floated in the womb like environment of the planetary ocean—nourished and protected by its fluid chemicals, rocked by the lunar- tidal rhythms. Charles Darwin believed the menstrual cycle originated here, organically echoing the moon pulse of the sea. And because this longest period of life’s time was dominated by marine forms reproducing parthenogenetically, he concluded that the female principle was primordial. In the beginning, life did not gestate within the body of any creature, but within the ocean womb containing all organic life. There were no specialized sex organs; rather, a generalized female existence reproduced itself within the female body of the sea.
The reach of rationality in Hinduism is deeply a rooted in its ethos, with as explicit tradition of agnosticism embedded in it. It is emancipated from many ungrounded norms is what it means to live after the end of history. Hinduism being a way of life is dedicated to the idea that the cosmos itself undergoes an immense and intimate number of deaths and rebirths. Its cycles run from ordinary days and nights to a (Brahma) day and night of 8.64 billion years long, longer than the age of the earth or the sun and about half the time since the beginning

The way of the soul in which impermanence is an undeniable and inescapable fact of life; from which nothing that belongs to the earthly realism of existence is ever free. The insight of “Frozen reason” does not have to adhere to the idea of the soul’s eternal existence.

Impermanence can be stilled by uniting with the atman-Brahman or Universe which exists within one self. Thus a nation of ‘before’ before time existed has no meaning as we have birthed time itself. The process is cyclic and the whole thing repeats itself over and over again.
