A theory in modern cosmology is suggesting that the Big Bang may not be the beginning of the universe. The Big Bounce Theory propounded by a number of physicists state that prior to the Big Bang the universe underwent contraction due to pressure until it reached a point that it expanded again. They say that the universe may have been undergoing continuous contraction and expansion. Paul J. Steinhardt of Princeton University, one of the proponents of the Cyclic Theory, says that this theory attempts to resolve the “homogeneity, isotropy, and flatness of the universe,” among other things observed.
This view is similar to the Hindu view about the periodic manifestation and dissolution (manvantara and pralaya) of the universe, a view also adopted by the Secret Doctrine of H. P. Blavatsky.

Why Big Bang was not the beginning
Date: August 2008
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.
