The concept of multiple universes

9000 years ago, Hindus (Read "ppl of Indus Valley n not just the sanatan dharm") knew about multiple universes. I will cite two examples below.

If u read Devi Purana, it is mentioned that there are many instances of Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the caretaker) and Shiva (the destroyer)... all created by God (Read "Devi Ma") to take care of each universe.

The second example relates to Ramayan, the epic that needs no introduction.

According to folktales related to Ramayan, when Hanuman saw the god of death in Ayodhya, he warned the latter and asked him to stay away from the province. But a body created means a body that'll die. Rama had to leave the body.

To facilitate the transition, Rama's ring fell down a hole in ground. Rama then asked Hanuman to go fetch the ring. By the time he returned, Rama allowed god of death to relieve him of his body.

What happened down the earth is also interesting. Hanuman chased the ring as it rolled down the hole. It went and stopped in a mountain full of similar rings.

Surprised, he asked someone nearby, "which one is the ring of Lord Rama?" The person said all of them belong to Lord Rama and that there were rings from different time phases (Read "different universes"). Each time a ring falls, a Hanuman would ask him the same question.

Hanuman understood that Lord Rama tricked him. He also understood that his was not the only Rama. That he was not the only Hanuman in existence. He understood there are many universes and life is spread or rather replicated among them. He stopped grieving and returned to the surface to continue his work of protecting people.

The two examples I mentioned above indicate that the concept of multiple universes existed much before people came to know that Earth is not the center of universe but a part of it. Any comments?
