The experience of "Regular" time is suspended when we're in the state of soul consciousness - you may have noticed this when coming out of meditation.
It's the same way in the first 2500 years of the cycle. Except the difference then is the state and stage of the universe/matter is that of subtle light - the same we experience now in soul consciousness. Science believes that time is relative, so it's in keeping soulconscious time is relative.
Regarding how the material universe regenerates, or turns to light? and its age etc.?
Creation - using info from the holoscience.com site
http://www.holoscience.com/synopsis.php?page=6... stars are formed by an electromagnetic "pinch" effect on widely dispersed gas and dust. The "pinch" is created by the magnetic force between parallel current filaments that are part of the huge electric currents flowing inside a galaxy. It is far more effective than gravity in concentrating matter and, unlike gravity, it can remove excess angular momentum that tends to prevent collapse. Stars will form like beads on a wire until gravity takes over. The late Ralph Juergens, an engineer from Flagstaff, Arizona, in the 1970's took the next mental leap to suggest that the electrical input doesn't stop there and that stars are not thermonuclear engines! This is obvious when the Sun is looked at from an electrical discharge perspective. The galactic currents that create the stars persist to power them. Stars behave as electrodes in a galactic glow discharge. Bright stars like our Sun are great concentrated balls of lightning! The matter inside stars becomes positively charged as electrons drift toward the surface.
It answers a lot of the 'how' mystery surrounding the physical universe (re)creation. I go futher and suggest that a momentary interruption of the universal electric current(s) occur when soul consciousness/purity reaches a point of critical mass. Power off - Power On, and the purity/authority over matter of consciousness that causes that chain reaction, is the switch in our physical universe.
dealing with RedShift (universe age) isssues -
http://www.holoscience.com/synopsis.php?page=4The Big Bang theory is based on a misinterpretation of redshift. The redshift of a distant galaxy is measured in the light coming from that galaxy. Lines in the spectrum of that galaxy show a shift toward the red compared with the same lines from our Sun. Arp discovered that high and low redshift objects are sometimes connected by a bridge or jet of matter. So . Most of the redshift is intrinsic to the object. But there is more: Arp found that the intrinsic redshift of a quasar or galaxy took discrete values, which decreased with distance from a central active galaxy. In Arp's new view of the cosmos, active galaxies "give birth" to high redshift quasars and companion galaxies. , not their distance. As a quasar or galaxy ages, the redshift decreases in discrete steps, or quanta.
I really like the work presented at holoscience. There is plenty of evidence supporting it (have a read through the site), I suspect it to be true, and it obeys the known laws of physics (without resorting to quantum make believe to make it work).
Other issues that come to mind - intelligent life/other beings in our universe. I remember a Murli back in the eighties where Baba says there is none. We're it.
So what about these alien 'visitors', flying saucers etc? Just as there are 'primitives' living along side our 'sophisticated' civilisations in the world today, a branch of once elevated, technologically advanced souls still exist, albiet just as lost as we are/were before Shivbabas arrival. Notice how the reports of aliens have them with human bodies - head, torso, arms and legs. In keeping with the degredation of the soul at this point in time. their eyes are reported as oversized, black.
DO NOT TRY AND FEED THESE SOULS!(joke)
So now we have an idea how the rapid technological advances occur. I suspect, just as impure souls don't/aren't able to enter Sat and Tretyug, these 'alien' souls are too physically feeble and fragile to cope with being earth bound in Kaliyug. I, for one, welcome our new technological overlords! :wink:
