Prof. Skulsky,  thanks for correcting my faulty guess about etymology. I see
that you are right. "Universe," then, would be an appropriate word for the
totality in PL, but not for our world or cosmos contained therein. I'm not
sure Chaos ought to be listed in series with the three created places as one
of  four "worlds."
