1. An indistinct measurement of time. One kalpa is the time that would elapse when one average-strengthed human with a silk cloth comes to rub a square-mile steel cube every solar earth year, turning it into a marble-sized ball.

A kalpa is a time unit and the term comes from hindi. A kalpa measures 4.32 billion years and is listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the longest time unit in use.
