The root dhatu is gam -- to go. The doubling of the dhatu signifies
repitition (Cf. man - to think. mimamsa -- "thinking back and forth" or
debate, dialectic etc.) So Jagata is that which is going back and forth
or constantly moving.
The explanation I have heard of is jagata is jah + gatah ie., where one is
born and one dies (goes away) hence that place is jagata.
I am just presenting it for consideration.
