In correspondence to your comments, infinite repetitions without beginning or
end, do constitute a single cosmos. Thanks for stating it so clearly. Every
experience of pure self-awareness feels like the first time... like
recognizing the place where you began, yet seeing it as if for the first time.

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja-vu at the same time. I think I've
forgotten this before.
