On the Origin and meaning of Universe: from Latin Universum ("the turning one, the whole in its allness”), from Uni (“One”), and Verse (“a turning”) which translates to the self-turning, self-sufficient, self-sustaining, self-creating One (“all together as one, the collective whole, allness, cosmic totality, literally one turns in itself").
