BHAGAVATA PURANA - ELIXIR of IMMORTALITY (version 1 of 3)

"The Churning of the Ocean of Milk" (see related A | B), 1680 Bhagavata Purana San Diego Museum of Fine Arts, San Diego, California, USA

Mythic Hindu representation of "Churning of the ocean of milk" by devils and divine Devas (Divinities) in a quest to engender and elixir of immortality. Perhaps in western and medical perspectives (European) such emblematic representations could stand for the generation of gametes (mature haploid male or female germ cells). Implicitly, the genome of hametes includes good (vital) and deleterious (lethal, evil) genes. This comment should be sufficient to start a debate.
