The Absolute is Almost Infinite

Buddhas and bodhisattvas are not the same as God, as even these Buddhas are finite in lifespan.

Only the Absolute is infinite in Western terms. In Eastern terms, the Absolute is both infinite and finite.

Compared to humans, the Absolute is close to infinite in age yet is finite in the sense that it too has a very long age i.e. is older than the present universe as the universe as science knows it has been reborn an almost infinite number of times.

Thus it is true to say the Absolute is older than the current universe as it has been reborn countless times and there has been no primordial creation.
