Before the Big Bang another universe existed, and a new one will emerge after ours collapses

  • Tea Dragičević

    … reminds me of The Hawaiʻian creation myth that the present cosmos is only the last of a series, having arisen in stages from the wreck of the previous universe..(It’s from Oceanic Mythology by Roland B. Dixon published in 1916.)Here’s the relevant passage:
    One of the most curious and interesting of Polynesian cosmogonic myths is that found in Hawaii, which, although differing in several important particulars from those just outlined, must yet be considered as belonging to the same general type. In the very beginning, however, a striking variation occurs, in that although we have the source of all things from chaos, it is a chaos which is simply the wreck and ruin of an earlier world. “And so, creation begins in the origin of a new world from the shadowy reflex of one that is past. . . .
    “Unsteadily, as in dim moon-shimmer,
    From out Makalii’s night-dark veil of cloud
    Thrills, shadow-like, the prefiguration of the world to be.”..
