The beginning of the world being when the different Otherworlds collided to create Glorantha or, for solar pantheon purposes, even 'before' that. The tricky part is that, according to Theyalan Lightbringers, Goddess Time was born 'when' the Darkness ended and Arachne Solara devoured Chaos, thus giving birth to Time. But this 'event' comes 'after' at least 100.000 years of solar history. The answer might be that Time is different from Causality, but better answers probably exist...
