The hebrew word, “Miqdem”, in the book of
Genesis is often translated as “the east”,
“The Lord God planted a garden in the east”.

which indicates a temporal rather than geographical place, “at the beginning”.
Therefore an equally valid reading is;
“The Lord God planted a garden
at the beginning [of time]”.
be ideally fused

where the Sun and the stars rise,
where the day, and time begins.
