Apparently, the Universe doesn't have a beginning or even a possible end. No Big Bang, as expected.

"These terms keep the universe at a finite size, and therefore give it an infinite age."
They have traded one infinity for another. Now it has an infinite 'age' rather than an infinite size. As space and time are interchangeable, they haven't changed the basic nature of anything. I suppose it does clean up the mathematics.

To be the voice of caution, we have to realize that this is a hypothesis (although a good one) and all it does is add indeterminacy to what used to be theorized as a proposed singularity state. Since the quantum indeterminacy notion is one of measurement (or based on our ability to perceive whatever is below a certain measurement) the notion of eternity is a theoretical one.
I'm just sayin'.

I would say that if this Universe wasn't created or has an age, it doesn't exist. It is nothing, yet, it is something.

Therefore, we live in a dream world, albeit, more dense than other planes or existence. It is only more dense than other planes or existence because we have senses. Without any senses, this world would be nothing.

Nvm. Let me explain that later.

¡Hi, GMAN12..!

Following is relevant...

If my memory serves well Mme. Blavatsky talks about Mahanvantara and Pralaya at "The Secret Doctrine I"

My best regards...
