I absolutely have no idea what you mean by this statement... what do you mean he is "just" transposing cosmology into Aiki terminology?
I think we're having a mixup between the ideas of "cosmology", which has to do with the nature

Maybe if we understand that a number of different religious beliefs in Asia were still based on the same cosmology, it becomes clearer?
