A. Everything depends on you. All that you know are just illusions of your own creating. None of them have any original nature of their own that is not granted by human beings. Where they start and end depends on you. Fighting with them, or struggling to escape from them, without realising this fact is compared to drowning in the ocean of illusions.
If you define your physical body as yourself, then your identity begins at the moment you are felt by your mother in her womb. If you identify yourself with the universe, as part of the universe, who knows when and where your being started? You are eternity itself.
