The wheel of time or wheel of history is a concept in several religions and philosophies, notably religions of Indian origin such as Hinduism later adopted by Buddhism, which regard time as cyclical and consisting of repeating ages. Many other notable cultures also believe in this Wheel of Time: notably, the Q'ero Indians in Peru who are the direct descendants of the Incan empire, as well as the Hopi Indians of Arizona, believe in this cyclical idea of time.
