in Indian philosophy means the All-in-All. The world is spun
out of Achar as a web from a spider, and will ultimately return to him,
as a spider sometimes takes back into itself its own thread. Phenomena
are not independent realities, but merely partial and individual
manifestations of the All-in-All.
