Abstract:  Origin of the universes. The cosmoses… is it all chaos and utter freedom? Or is it done with an unimaginably divine purpose? Is the ultimate apocalypse implied in the first bite which Eve took from the apple (computers) and gave to Adam. Is mortality the final doom? Or are infinite immortal paths opened every nano-moment? A brief comparative study of Eastern and Western modes of philosophizing. Descriptions of the universe, and the universe itself. Number, measure and the apocalyptic revelation. Myth, history, reality ~ The mind(s)-matter(s) problem revisited fine-ally for absolute resolution. Where is all this leading to? The domain of ancient prophecies and their final resolution. Linearity, circularity of time in infinite cosmic cycles. Rewriting all the pasts in infinite ways from every node and beyond it all (Sudharshana Chakra, Mahakaalachakra). Raagam-s, mownam-s ~ the infinite possibilities of infinite music. The hidden significances of each and all ~ the good, the bad, the evil and beyond ~ Infinite distinct cosmoses of infinite distinct beings. The laboratory of Babel.  A brief survey of physical sciences in the West, from Aristotle, to modern chaotic cosmological catastrophes. Survey of biological natural sciences.
