Got the warning not to post here due to it not being posted in, in at least 120 days.

But just wanted to say, you could also draw sources from say, the wikipedia page for cosmologies.

Even wikipedia makes it obvious that there are a lot of (relatively) modern schools of thought outside typical spiritual beliefs, for example. Though, ties to the antediluvian world obviously take precedence as this outline obviously notes. The Hindu tradition, specifically, has a lot of resources to draw from.
