In some languages there is a common pathetic hyperbole that goes like "the origin of origins" or "beginning of beginnings". Is there anything similar in English [or Latin]?
Context: consider a situation where you see a bad translation into English and want to help someone out. With a phrase in the heading like "This important process is the beginning of beginnings [meaning you can't possibly get going in any of the related processes without entering this one]" - what would you suggest? Or if it were a song with the words in another language saying "home sweet home, the origin of origins" that you want to explain to your English-speaking friends?
