Big Bang Bounced


galaxy2Big Science and Big Religion have something in common after all. Both would have us believe the universe was fashioned out of nothing. Before the Big Bang there was “nothing.”

Rinse and repeat, you get the opening of Genesis: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” and “darkness was upon the face of the deep.”

WAKE UP CALL

A Tour of the Calculus author David Berlinsky, PhD writes “The Big Bang has come to signify virtually a universal creed,” (Was There a Big Bang?). In this short video clip, Dr. Berlinsky discusses the willingness of Science to accept criticism:

In fairness, scientists are sometimes willing to admit their miscalculations. Recently a laboratory computer simulation of the Big Bang behaved unexpectedly. Anil Ananthaswamy, writing in the December 10, 2008 issue of New Scientist, describes the event and the reaction of physicist Abhay Ashteka:

“I was taken aback,” he says. He was watching a simulation of the universe rewind towards the big bang. Mostly the universe behaved as expected, becoming smaller and denser as the galaxies converged. But then, instead of reaching the big bang “singularity”, the universe bounced and started expanding again. What on earth was happening?

FORCE DUALITY

For students of The Secret Doctrine this is a welcome question. Ashteka’s big bang experiment is suggestive of “the dual Force that Occultism calls attraction and repulsion” (SD 1:497).  The universe obeys cyclic laws of day and night, sleeping and waking, as H. P. Blavatsky explained in the Second of her “Three Fundamental Propositions”:

This second assertion of the Secret Doctrine is the absolute universality of that law of periodicity, of flux and reflux, ebb and flow, which physical science has observed and recorded in all departments of nature. An alternation such as that of Day and Night, Life and Death, Sleeping and Waking, is a fact so common, so perfectly universal and without exception, that it is easy to comprehend that in it we see one of the absolutely fundamental laws of the universe. (SD 1:13-18)

A UNIFIED WEB

Now cosmologists and physicists are being closely criticized for ignoring these laws. Frontier plasma cosmologists David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill explain their competing theory, clearly Theosophical, on their website Thunderbolts.org

“From the smallest particle to the largest galactic formation,” they say, “a web of electrical circuitry connects and unifies all of nature, organizing galaxies, energizing stars, giving birth to planets and, on our own world, controlling weather and animating biological organisms.” Their conclusion: “There are no isolated islands in an electric universe.”

Sure scientists are willing to recognize their miscalculations and mistakes. But are they willing to publish them?

“Ashtekar wanted to be sure of what he was seeing,” Ananthaswamy reports in NewScientist, “so he asked his colleagues to sit on the result for six months before publishing it in 2006.  And no wonder.”
