Genesis And Emberverse
in the Biblical Genesis, God creates the heaven and the earth, i.e., the universe;
in Poul Anderson's Genesis, post-organic intelligences spread from Earth through the galaxy and beyond, forming a collective mind;
in SM Stirling's Emberverse series, Mind, originating on Earth, survives the end of the universe and directs the evolution of a subsequent universe.
In the subsequent Emberverse universe, a hostile Power aims to destroy Mind on Earth. However, the Mind that has survived from the previous universe would still exist, I think?
