The name varies depends on the "observer" or "frame of reference". To us, we don't know, so let's call it "day X". Now going back 1 day before that day (X-1), according to the last batch of beings about to become enlightened, they would call it "the last day". Now, say the very last being becomes enlightened at 23:59:59 on X-1, on the split moment past this point, the entire concept of "the last day" becomes Null for there's no more "observer". This could only happens based on some highly difficult assumptions, like all the beings in the lower realms (hell, hungry ghosts, animals) already evolved up to at least the human level, and humans then would all have to be strict vegans (no more animal products).... Anyway, I'm sorry for distract us away from our main objective of the forum, which is to focus on the teaching of the Buddha. But just some entertaining thought for a quick break. Now, let's all go back to our meditation...

Perhaps we should first find the name for the day when samsara began.

Kind regards
