    History is Ontic but Itihāsa is Ontologic - a Fractal Maṇḍala Essay
    In this essay we engage in emic freethinking, and look at some names from Indian itihāsa in a new light. How many such stories might we find in the Purāṇas, Epics and other texts? And if we did, would we not understand our past better?

    The time to convert moment to epoch is Here and Now.
