Verse 7.184.40

तापस उवाच ।
अपूर्वं दृश्यते सर्वं स्वप्ने स्वमरणं यथा ।
प्राग्दृष्टं दृष्टमित्येव तत्रैवाभ्यासतः स्मृतिः ॥ ४० ॥

tāpasa uvāca |
apūrvaṃ dṛśyate sarvaṃ svapne svamaraṇaṃ yathā |
prāgdṛṣṭaṃ dṛṣṭamityeva tatraivābhyāsataḥ smṛtiḥ || 40 ||

The devotee replied:—All these that offer themselves to our view, are quite unprecedented and without their original patterns in the mind, and resemble the sight of our own death that we happen to see in a dream. It is the omniscience of Brahma, that caused the first creation, and not his memory of the past as it is with us and other created beings.
