2:7 "..The world is encompassed on every side and above and below by the shell of the egg of the Brahma... around the outer surface of the shell flows water.., the waters are encompassed by fire.. fire by air, and air by Mind, Mind by the origin of the elements (Ahamkara) and that by the intellect, and the last is encircled by the chief Principle, Pradhana, which is infinate and.. is called the boundless and illimitable cause of all existing things, supreme nature, or prakriti; the cause of all mundane eggs of which there are.. thousands of millions... Within pradhana resides soul, diffusive, conscious, and self-irradiating, as fire is inherent in flint, or sesamum oil in its seed. Nature (Pradhana) and soul (Puman) are both of the character of dependants, and are encompassed by the energy of Vishnu, which is one with the soul of the world, and which is the cause of the separation of those two (soul and nature) at the period of dissolution; of their aggregation in the continuance of things; and of their combination at the season of creation".
So, this "mundane" egg (sometimes referred to elsewhere as a "universal egg"), is akin to the eggs I experienced. I remember the feeling that my entire conception of the universe was within the egg. So I am seeing each of us souls as manifesting our own universe within our own egg. As such we each create our own reality, and we are each the creator or God of our own universe. The intriguing bit is how all these personal universes interact with each other (which they clearly do) to create the shared experiences we all have.
