THEOSOPHY teaches the progressive development of everything, “worlds as well as atoms,” according to The Secret Doctrine.
This “stupendous development,” the Sages taught, “has neither conceivable beginning nor imaginable end.”
It is endless in effect as the force of love, according to the ancients. (SD 1:43)
To Initiated Seers our universe, while full of important information, is “only one of an infinite number of Universes, all links in the great Cosmic chain of Universes.”
In this view each individual cosmos and corresponding single human life is the effect of its predecessor.
Under the never-erring law of Karma, every universe becomes “a cause as regards its successor.” Instead of only one Big Bang, the usual dogma for the origin of the universe, there must have been multiple efforts this new theory suggests.
“There was not just one bang,” say Paul J. Steinhardt and Neil Turok in their book Endless Universe.
Now science is being compelled to consider the importance nad necessity of the law of cycles.
The appearance of our universe, it is proposed, “was not the beginning of time, but the bridge to a past filled with endlessly repeating cycles of evolution.” A purely Theosophical doctrine.
The distinguished theoretical physicists propose that “the evolution of the universe is cyclic with big bangs occurring once every trillion or so.”
Cycles may be a good start. But unlike an infinite cycle of titanic collisions, Theosophy offers a kinder, gentler solution tied to the cosmology of ancient seers. It declares that the universe and everything in it is alive, and sustained by a perpetual rhythmic breathing.
