Not exactly Buddhist but just wanted to share this short story written by Andy Weir, author of The Martian (Matt Damon movie) and animated by Kurzgesagt.

    i'll try to make it buddhist,daozen.the egg ,the archetype of the circle.the meaning complete in dao all things included,.potentual and/actual in karma.the lessen be cool .the vibe of the video,the dao smiles at the young who wants to be gods,nod at the old who wants rest.this can be full circle,if you know rest you know the beginning.another way to put it linear becomes nonlinear. a line when curved completes a beginning and an end.

    Besides the creator, that's the notion that makes the most sense to me.

    It may not be exactly Buddhist but it sure brings to mind "Call me by my true names".
