Would you like to comment about the concept of "kalpa"?
It means essentially aeon or epoch. In both Hindu and Buddhist cosmology, big numbers are used to expand one's sense of things. It is both a mystical and actual time length, although since it's a traditional concept, it deviates from science quite a bit. I believe both Hindus and Buddhists have people populating distant kalpas, back when it was Lucy's land.

You can forgive a religion some of these details, though...
