What is the name of the theory that describes how the world came into being from the original self. Retelling "In the beginning there was a plurality of selves, but then it divided and forgot who and what it was, remaining in the plurality of oblivion."?


Answer from: Eternal S.:
I love to travel, constantly discovering new things. Studying...


Your quote is not accurate, or it's just absurd. If at first there was "multitude of self", then how could it divide and forget itself, for this "multitude of I" was already a multitude, that is, it was already divided. Generally speaking, this sounds like common pantheism ("omniscience"), in which the original Absolute forgets itself:falls asleep:separates and arises "a multitude of spirits", which, after a certain period of time "...merge into the Absolute.." and disappear. Philosophically such pantheism would correspond to Hegelianism in the first place, and perhaps partially to Schopenhauer's conception of "the world will".
