Is Nirvana one with the singularity posited by some physicists and mathematicians?
Or perhaps, striding into metaphysics, is it one with a pre-singularity, one before it attained any mass at all and encompassed only inchoate infinity?
Or is Nirvana, in another sense, inchoate chaos, where chaos refers to all possibilities existing concurrently?
Thoughts for an afternoon in late February, some-when in inchoate eternity.
