The "Cyclic Model of the Universe" and Blavatsky

Dear friends, 

"We propose a cosmological model in which the universe undergoes an 
endless sequence of cosmic epochs that begin with a "bang" and end 
in a "crunch." Temperature and density at the transition remain 
finite. Instead of having an inflationary epoch, each cycle includes 
a period of slow accelerated expansion (as recently observed) 
followed by contraction that produces the homogeneity, flatness, and 
energy needed to begin the next cycle". (1)

"Manvantara implying here... a period of activity, as opposed to 
Pralaya...".(2)

"THE DAYS AND NIGHTS OF BRAHMA. THIS is the name given to the 
Periods called MANVANTARA (Manuantara, or between the Manus) and 
PRALAYA (Dissolution); one referring to the active periods of the 
Universe, the other to its times of relative and complete restó
according to whether they occur at the end of a "Day," or an "Age" 
(a life) of Brahm‚".(3)

"Modern science is our best ally".(4)
