THEOSOPHY teaches the progressive development of everything, “worlds as well as atoms,” according to The Secret Doctrine.
This “stupendous development,” teach the Sages, “has neither conceivable beginning nor imaginable end.” (SD 1:43) Endless as the power of love, according to the ancients.
To Initiated Seers our universe, full of independent choices, is “only one of an infinite number of Universes, all links in the great Cosmic chain of Universes.”
In their view, each individual cosmos and corresponding single human life is the effect of its predecessor. Under the overarching Law of Karma, “a cause as regards its successor.”
Over the last three decades even modern physics has been seriously considering a “cyclic theory” instead of only one Big Bang, the usual explanation for the origin of the universe.”There was not just one bang,” say Paul J. Steinhardt and Neil Turok in Endless Universe.
Both distinguished theoretical physicists propose that “the evolution of the universe is cyclic with big bangs occurring once every trillion or so.” (It’s about ‘time’! say Electric Universe proponents, agreeably with Occult Physics.)
