The cosmologist says the universe is about roughly 13.7 billion years old. While this may be true, I say unto you, the universe is but a dream in the glorious mind of the Nirvanic Being.
The Nirvanic Being is a formless, ageless, timeless, qualityless being that is permeating all universes. It is prior to all movement, it is the originator of all movement. Yet it does not move itself. It is utterly detached yet completely intertwined with all manifestation. It cannot be fathomed by a separate knower of it. If you go about trying to understand it with your intellect, i. e. the need of a subject and object. You will never understand it.
However if you go with the guidance of your spiritual heart accompanied with the grace of the Serene Spirit. You will come home, you will be one with that One.
The universe is a big place, billions of stars, galaxies, and galactic clusters.
You are the witness of all.
From where do they arise? And to Whom?
Explore and Behold!
