|I don't believe that is quite accurate. Surely it is the 
|notion that there is a *SEPARATE* self that is the core of our 
|own particular human Maya and suffering.
|The idea that our ignorance is the one thing that keeps "the 
|whole manvantara" going seems somewhat exoteric and 
|superficial, if not simply
|grandiose. Will the entire Manvantara and all the future 
|Manvantaras, the
|periodical and regular manifestations of the One Self Existing 
|Reality (ie
|Parabrahm) all come to an end when we truly realise we are not 
|separate from one another?
|Maybe the KOSMOS with its cycles of rest and activity, the 
|periodical playground of numberless Universes, is much much 
|grander and far more meaningful than the pitiful stage of 
|selfishness and separateness that our current humanity is 
|going through.
