In this original translation of Aitareya Upanishad's sanskrit verse, Aiteraya Upanishad is shown describing the origination of Universe from plasma to particles and beyond.
Only seciton 1 is covered in this blog.
Aitareya Upanishad talks about the creation of forces, matter particles and biological lie from the primordial quark-gluon plasma. It talks about a plasmic quark that is bound by the strong force (called Prana), whose thermal energy increases due to the bonding of the strong force. From this burning, scorching of plasmic quark, the forces created are high penetrating cosmic gamma rays, visible electro-magnetic force, gravitational force and Universe originating celestial forces called Adityas. These are collectively called Marichi that form the space. Marichi is a set of field and particle (exhibiting duality) and that has no death by destruction like the Mara form of matter.(Probably they appear and disappear)
As the plasmic quark heats up and up, a layer crystallizes on top of it. Out of it, the first matter particles created are strings of quarks. The quark strings grow thicker. They combine to form protons, neutrons, electrons, weak force (driving away force) in that order. Then a radioactive decay starts, thus starting death. These are called Mara that are of mortal form (susceptible to death by destruction) and form the stars and planets.
Gluons are strong binding force called prana and Apana is the driving away/moving away force also called weak force that holds the satellite electrons in their position and also cause radioactive decay.
Also life supporting particles flow out from a rod like structure and create a life supporting medium. These are called Apa and form the biological life.
