The "Cyclic Model of the Universe" and Blavatsky
May 06, 2006 12:00 PM
"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
"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)
