       How many times is the same story told?

       Many times it has been told.   Consider a sampling (remember, these don't have to be seen as what has happened in time but that happens eternally NOW meaning these places are available to you via the practice of exercises such as meditation):

Genesis 1 of the Bible:

 

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.

 6 And God said, "Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water."

  7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the vault "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day.

The Hindu Rig Veda:

 

"There was neither death nor immortality then.   There was no distinguishing sign of day or night. That one breathed, windless, by its own impulse.   Other than that there was nothing beyond.  

Darkness was hidden by darkness in the beginning with no distinguishing sign.   All this was Water (i.e., undifferentiated Life).   The Life Force that was covered with Emptiness, that One arose through the power of heat.

Desire came upon that one in the beginning; that was the first seed of mind.   Poets seeking in their heart with Wisdom found the bond of existence in non-existence.

Again, in the Rig Veda 10:125:

 

"I give birth to the Father at the head of this world.   My womb is in the Waters, within the Ocean. From there I spread out over all creatures and touch the very sky with the crown of my head.   I am the one who blows like the wind, embracing all creatures."(Note: in Genesis the wind moving upon the face of the Waters (female Tehom also Marie) was the feminine Ruach which was eventually identified with Hockmah Binah or Wisdom and Understanding which in Greek was translated as Sophia Episteme)
