The same difference between God and the world, or between Brahman and Samsara.

>*outside* the Uncreated Cosmic Dragon,
Which is like trying to perceive and effect that which is outside God (Orthodox Kralori cosmology states that the Cosmic Dragon did it to create more Cosmic Dragons). That said, there are Kralori that do believe something of the sort:
Sekeveran cosmology states that the Cosmic Dragon devolved itself so that he might experience the Ultimate, a course that attained completion in the reign of Emperor Sekever. But the lesser dragons formed by this devolution could not understand its purpose and so reversed it, marring the bliss of the world. Since that time, Dragons oppress Kralorela by preventing it from reaching the Ultimate. Glorantha: Intro p191.
