Some Examples of Cosmos
Updated: Feb 13, 2019
THE TRADITIONAL BUDDHIST COSMOS
The central mountain (Mount Meru) above the 8 cold and 8 hot hells and below the heavenly realms of the celestial divas.
THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN COSMOS
Earth in the center (with Hell inside), under the planets, the fixed stars, and the Empyrean.
THE MODERN UNIVERSE
Since space is expanding outward equally from all points, everywhere is the center of the universe. This model presents a cosmos with the sun as the fixed reference point and moves outward (and thus back in time) by orders of magnitude to other stars, other galaxies, the filaments, and the circumference as the Big Bang.
