Absolutely contemplative, and stunning visual timelapse of the future, based on modern science, created by Melody Sheep https://www.patreon.com/melodysheep., who creates science videos and soundtrack music mashups. When I first happened onto Timelapse of the Future, it had a near 10 thousand views, and I did not see the date, and thought it was one of those profoundly underrated Youtube videos. Now the views are over 2 million. It needs much more. The description reads:
How’s it all gonna end? This experience takes us on a journey to the end of time, trillions of years into the future, to discover what the fate of our planet and our universe may ultimately be. We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos – to name a few. This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science – a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent – and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found. To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective – that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away. Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

What would you, as a student, a theosophist, etc., say of this?
A few relative quotes from Theosophists on Space in light of the video include:
“The book of Khiu-te teaches us that space is infinity itself. It is formless, immutable and absolute.”THE MAHATMA LETTERS TO A.P. SINNETT (BARKER’S ED.), LETTER NO. 86,
“…existence has limited and definite periods, whereas Duration, having neither beginning nor end, is a perfect abstraction which contains Time. Duration is like Space, which is an abstraction too, and is equally without beginning or end. It is in its concretency and limitation only that it becomes a representation and something. Of course the distance between two points is called space; it may be enormous or it may be infinitesimal, yet it will always be space. But all such specifications are divisions in human conception. In reality Space is what the ancients called the One invisible and unknown (now unknowable) Deity.” (Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Secret Doctrine Commentary (Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge by H. P. Blavatsky, p. 11, 1890, or Blavatsky’s Collected Writings, Vol. 10, p. 310)
“If one could suppose the Eternal Infinite All, the Omnipresent Unity, instead of being in Eternity, becoming through periodical manifestation a manifold Universe or a multiple personality, that Unity would cease to be one. Locke’s idea that “pure Space is capable of neither resistance nor Motion”—is incorrect. Space is neither a “limitless void,” nor a “conditioned fulness,” but both: being, on the plane of absolute abstraction, the ever-incognisable Deity, which is void only to finite minds, and on that of mayavic perception, the Plenum, the absolute Container of all that is, whether manifested or unmanifested. There is no difference between the Christian Apostle’s ‘In Him we live and move and have our being,’ and the Hindu Rishi’s ‘The Universe lives in, proceeds from, and will return to, Brahma (…) The God of the Apostle-Initiate and of the Rishi being both the Unseen and the Visible SPACE. Space is called in the esoteric symbolism ‘the Seven-Skinned Eternal Mother-Father.’ It is composed from its undifferentiated to its differentiated surface of seven layers.” (Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Secret Doctrine Commentary (Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge by H. P. Blavatsky, Meeting 1, January 10th, 1889)
“As its substance is of a different kind from that known on earth, the inhabitants of the latter, seeing THROUGH IT, believe in their illusion and ignorance that it is empty space. There is not one finger’s breath (ANGULA) of void Space in the whole Boundless (Universe). . . . .” (Extracts from an Eastern Private Commentary, Hitherto Secret, see Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II,, p. 8)
