When man came, he was seduced by the beauty of this world of matter. So he forgot his world of Spirit and the Mind fell into Oblivion, but the Heart gave the Soul eternal promise: “No matter when, no matter how, I’ll help you to remember who You are”

Astrophysicists are perplexed that the Universe is actually speeding up, rather than slowing down, from the Big Bang... a shockwave decays over time, it doesn't get faster.
Man regularly gets clues that indicate our institutional academics do not understand as much as they would like us to believe.
Many of us don’t notice these clues as we have wholeheartedly trusted in these institutions to be our guide, presuming they have done the work in a rational manner and simply know more than we do. This is a misstep in the search for Truth.
“Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.”

Some of the most insightful theories of reality and mankind's existence come from individuals, not compendiums. Since men in the public space are persistently working to build reputation for themselves, gain accolades and recognition for their efforts, perhaps in the desire to gain funding for their ambitions; this creates a natural conflict of interest in the pursuit of Truth.
“The Mob is the most ruthless of Tyrants”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
(Author, Philosopher, Cultural Critic)
It puts automatic blinders onto a subject that refuses to step outside of the social norms which are expected by contributing partners. This is particularly nefarious when it’s institutionalized, as the mob gladly attacks any individual who steps outside the boundaries of the ruleset, effectively squashing any uncomfortable Truths that may have been discovered, before they are even spoken.
“When the mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is ruled by superstition; and when the state governs, he is ruled by fear. Before men can live together in harmony and understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into wisdom, superstition into an illuminated faith, and fear into love.”

This is where the insights of a creative individual such as ethnobotanist Terrence McKenna come into play. It’s likely that astrophysicists are not comparing their findings against a Mystic Seeker such as McKenna, as it would be assumed there is no correlation there… and beyond that, he’s on drugs (automatic disqualification).
The irony is that McKenna's “Timewave Zero” theory, a theory in which "Novelty" in the Universe is illustrating a distinct theme. A historical look at major "events" such as floods or wars, pandemics or plain crashes, have exposed a pattern.
These events have been getting closer-and-closer together.
Think of a Spiral... the closer you travel towards the center, the faster it spins. The faster it spins, the quicker these events take place in the Spacetime Continuum. When you recognize that human events are also speeding up alongside the Universal Big Bang itself, that’s a correlation worth at least some attention.
Consider with an open mind what this could mean from a philosophical / existential point-of-view…
If world events are speeding up with the expansion of the Universe itself, this implies a potential state of diminishing returns. Like a coin spinning on a table… as the coin begins to lose momentum and gets closer to falling over and stopping, the faster it sounds. It’s gaining speed, before it stops.
Whether you buy this theory or not, the point is exemplary of why we shouldn't shut down potential ideas and views based on a box built of our own chosen bias, before we have explored where the concepts may lead us.
In Hinduism; a deeply Astro-theological spirituality, there is a philosophical concept called "The Days and Nights of Brahma"...
A symbolic allegory where the Mind of the Universe awakens for a period of time to create the Dream of Life as we know it, then over time resigns itself back to Sleep for a period, before awaking and repeating the process, infinitely.
Perhaps this acceleration of the the Universe, combined with McKenna’s discovery of Novelty speeding up in the human Consciousness, points to a coming “Night of Brahma”... where all Novelty collides into a condensed singular point in time, a Singularity... that ends “Time” and allows the Universal Mind to become complete Infinity again. Nothingness.
Consider that Events are what create the opportunity for something to Observe them.
We only exist BECAUSE time exists.
If all Events (not just major events used for study, but ALL happening events of existence) stop happening, there is nothing left to Observe. At that point, what exactly are we? Where are we?
If Time only exists to provide a theater for the "observer"... then collapsing these Events into a singularity would remove the Observer from the theater; and the theater itself. The exact opposite of the Big Bang.
This ‘faster’ Universe may SEEM as though it’s speeding Out into Infinity… when in actuality, it could be collapsing IN to Infinity…
Bringing all Events to a close, faster and faster… like a coin losing momentum on a table, until it finally falls into a Singularity. All of Conscious Awareness imploding into a Black Hole state of silent infinity, the seat of Consciousness.
Adversely, the “Day of Brahma” would be the Awakening of Consciousness to this effect of Time. The Big Bang and its slow spiral outwards, as it develops the planets from gasses, terraforms environment and cultivates minor forms of Life that lead to more advanced forms of Life… which then peak and begin to cycle back in again, ad infinitum.
Let’s not forget, all of Life inherently follows the Universal Law of Polarity… Yin & Yang. You can’t KNOW something without it having an opposite in relativity to recognize its distinction. There is no Black without White.
Why would The Big Bang work on a different principle than everything else that exists in the known Universe?
Yet, you likely won’t find an astrophysicist out there that’s willing to entertain this idea seriously… never mind going on record to introduce it to a community of their peers. That means, these institutions aren’t giving you ALL the information that possibly exists on the subject… they are only giving you their biased institutional perspective, which has been kneecapped by their fear of academic reprisal.
Not useless, but not the whole story.
Beware trusting a society that doesn’t have its priorities straight.
Think for yourself. Do your own research. Take interest in topics that are obscure, in areas that you may have a conditioned prejudice or bias towards. Recognize where you are limiting yourself and seek to explore those areas in which you previously wrote off.
You don’t have to “believe” anything, ever… but to outright ignore ANY information based on a biased preconception, is the classic definition of Ignorance. That’s not a very Scientific position to hold, especially if you are genuinely interested in seeking out answers.
It pays to entertain the wisdom of the past, if you want to catch a glimpse of the future.
