The Block Universe

The nature of time and its flow remains a mystery from the point of view of modern physics. Many physicists argue that Einstein’s masterpiece, the general theory of relativity, and the Standard Model of particle physics, describe a timeless cosmos, sometimes called a “block universe” — a static block of space-time in which the totality of time already exists. In this view, all points in time equally “real,” which means that the future and past are no less real than the present. The flow of time, or passage of the future into the past, must presumably be a mental construct.


Although this idea remains controversial, it bears a very interesting resemblance with how H. P. Blavatsky explained the nature of time in The Secret Doctrine:


Time is only an illusion produced by the succession of our states of consciousness as we travel through eternal duration . . . .  The present is only a mathematical line which divides that part of eternal duration which we call the future, from that part which we call the past. . . .  The real person or thing does not consist solely of what is seen at any particular moment, but is composed of the sum of all its various and changing conditions from its appearance in the material form to its disappearance from the earth. It is these “sum-totals” that exist from eternity in the “future,” and pass by degrees through matter, to exist for eternity in the “past.” No one could say that a bar of metal dropped into the sea came into existence as it left the air, and ceased to exist as it entered the water, and that the bar itself consisted only of that cross-section thereof which at any given moment coincided with the mathematical plane that separates, and, at the same time, joins, the atmosphere and the ocean. Even so of persons and things, which, dropping out of the to-be into the has-been, out of the future into the past — present momentarily to our senses a cross-section, as it were, of their total selves, as they pass through time and space (as matter) on their way from one eternity to another.” (SD I, 37)


Electric Gravity in an Electrical Universe

Ralph Sansbury of MIT’s magnet laboratory proposes an electromagnetic theory of gravity. According to this view, gravity is the result of the aligning of electric dipoles in subatomic particles — protons, neutrons and electrons.

In her writings, H. P. Blavatsky made the startling statement that gravity is not a force of nature.[SD1, p. 490 et seq.] This was supported by her teachers. For example, in 1882 Mahatma K.H. wrote that “there is no gravitation properly speaking; only attraction and repulsion”.[ML93B] According to Blavatsky, the agent behind the phenomenon of attraction and repulsion is Fohat, whose chief manifestation on the physical plane is electricity and magnetism.

The “Electric Universe” Project (now “Thunderbolt” Project) has been advertising for years that all previous scientists like Newton, Einstein, Bohr, Hawking, Penrose, … were ignorant of the reality of Physics, and that everything in the Universe can be explained by electric fields. This approach is very attractive for theosophists, because it has similitude with the Ancient Wisdom teachings, but it fails, up to now, to provide with any mathematical model – except the Birkland Field Theory – which would explain any of the observed physical phenomenon like cosmogenesis, baryogenesis, standard model, etc.
