A Cyclical Universe Composed of Innumerable Cycles
Everything that we see and experience in nature and life proceeds in cycles. In the modern world fashion follows cycles. Astronomy is not exempt from this world of changing fashion. One moment the universe was generated from a Big Bang, then the universe was perpetual, cycling along just like its many cycling parts.

Endless Universe: Beyond the Big Bang - Rewriting Cosmic History
(2007) Steinhardt, Paul J., and Turok, Neil.
The authors first examine the faults of the Big Bang paradigm. Then they remedy them by proposing a radically different history of the cosmos: namely a cyclic universe. Here is a seductive replacement of a paradigm now under siege. In their new cosmology, Steinhardt and Turok, both distinguished physicists: "...contend that what we think of as the moment of creation was simply part of an infinite cycle of titanic collisions between our universe and a parallel world".
I certainly hope that these 'distinguished physicists' had the proper education and background reading to credit their wonderful new theory to Vedic cosmology which has put forward this theory since the beginning of time when astronomers were walking around with wooden telescopes. To paraphrase, Vedic astronomy says that the universe is like a god who lives, matures and expands, then withdraws back into himself and finally goes to sleep. He awakens again to recreate the new universe.
Harmony & Synchronicity of the Planets
William R. Corliss in Science Frontiers (#191, Sept-Oct 2010) describes a new paradigm regarding the planets of our solar system. It appears that R. Elliott has discovered a 'clockwork solar system' in which the earth year is the standard reference. Elliott has discovered that the planets, with no exceptions, are connected temporally with the earth in their periods of rotation and their orbital periods. The connection is the angle of 45° and small multiples thereof.
Example: During precisely one earth year each (and every) planet performs a certain number of spins on its axis, and then rotates an additional angle that is very nearly a multiple of 45°. During one earth year, Venus spins once plus 181.08° (4 x 45 = 180). All of the planets rotate so many complete turns plus a multiple of 45°. Mercury's orbital period is 87.969 days. Earth during that time period moves in space 86.7°, which misses the product of 12 x 45° by just 3.3°! And so on, with all the axial rotations and orbital periods of the planets and even some asteroids. Corliss cites Bob Berman (Astronomy, 38:12, July 2010) for this information.
Corliss (Science Frontiers #191, Sept-Oct 2010) reviews Endless Universe: Beyond the Big Bang -Rewriting Cosmic History by P.D. Ward and D. Brownlee (2004). The Drake Equation (1950) estimates the number of intelligent civilizations in our galaxy at about 1 million according to his guess of the factors that enable life here upon our planet. So far, these intelligent neighbors have failed to contact us even though we have ears and giant discs listening to the universe. The Drake equation failed to include a large moon companion to a prospective earth, and many unique astronomical factors to our place and position in the universe. The authors conclude that intelligent life must actually be very rare in the universe -an opinion which may be extrapolated from ancient cosmology. We already knew and deduced this 'extra-special nature of our mother planet'.
If we accept the idea that all energy and spirit is generated by the universe, we should conclude that this energy is communicated to our Milky Way galaxy. Then this energy is communicated from the Milky Way galaxy to our Sun at the focus of our solar system. This powerful energy is then communicated to the planets which reflect the Sun's light. The Earth enjoys a special position as the third rock from the Sun. This off-set position allows us to receive safe doses of energy (from Sun & planets) during long extended time periods of our rotation and revolution around the Sun. The movements of our Moon contribute to our motions and further protect our home from meteors and space debris. The above factors naturally contribute to the variety of life upon our planet.
The sun controls the earth's global electrical circuit
Data collected from electrosondes (balloons measuring atmospheric electrical currents) over the Antarctic ice caps infer that solar flares stimulate large surges in the flow of electrical charge from the upper atmosphere to the earth's surface. Because this uni-directional flow of fair-weather, electricity must ultimately be balanced by thunderstorms somewhere on the planet, it follows that the frequency and severity of terrestrial thunderstorms are dictated, at least on the average, by solar activity. Formerly, global circuit theory had it that the thunderstorms themselves were the driving force behind the fair-weather current flow. Now it seems that the sun calls the tune and that thunderstorms do not arise at random. (Anonymous; "Solar Activity and Terrestrial Thunderstorms," New Scientist, 81:256, 1979.)
