"In the Chandogya Upanisad the winning throw at dice is called krita, and the commentators add that the sides of a die are marked with the numbers 4, 3, 2, and 1, and are called, respectively, krita, treta, dvapara, and kali. These four terms are the names of the four recurring ages in the Hindu myth of cycling time; the correspondence suggests traces of a myth in which historical ages proceeded from a dice game played by a time-god."
