According to Maurer, Blavatsky was at the forefront of establishing relativity as a viable enterprise in 1888, nearly two decades before Einstein’s annus mirabilis of 1905 and almost three before he presented general relativity in 1915. He also credits her with discovering quantum mechanics, the perpetual motion of atoms, and the relationship of matter to energy. To make this claim, however, Maurer has purposely misrepresented Blavatsky. Here is how he presents her concept of quantum indeterminacy:
Everything that exists has only a relative, not an absolute reality, since the appearance which the hidden noumenon assumes for any observer depends on his power of cognition but all things are relatively real, for the cogniser is also a reflection, and the things cognised are therefore as real to him as himself.
Maya or illusion is an element which enters into all finite things, for everything that exists has only a relative, not an absolute, reality, since the appearance which the hidden noumenon assumes for any observer depends upon his power of cognition. To the untrained eye of the savage, a painting is at first an unmeaning confusion of streaks and daubs of colour, while an educated eye sees instantly a face or a landscape. Nothing is permanent except the one hidden absolute existence which contains in itself the noumena of all realities. The existences belonging to every plane of being, up to the highest Dhyan-Chohans, are, in degree, of the nature of shadows cast by a magic lantern on a colourless screen; but all things are relatively real, for the cogniser is also a reflection, and the things cognised are therefore as real to him as himself.
OK, so what about relativity?
Here is Maurer’s excerpt from Blavatsky in which proposes what he sees as the theory of relativity:
…all the so called Forces of Nature, Electricity, Magnetism, Light, Heat are in esse, i.e. in their ultimate constitution, the differentiated aspect of that universal motion discussed (earlier) (see Proem)
The Occultists, who do not say—if they would express themselves correctly—that matter, but only the substance or essence of matter, is indestructible and eternal, (i.e., the Root of all, Mulaprahriti): assert that all the so-called Forces of Nature, Electricity, Magnetism, Light, Heat, etc., etc., far from being modes of motion of material particles, are in esse, i.e., in their ultimate constitution, the differentiated aspects of that Universal Motion which is discussed and explained in the first pages of this volume (See Proem).
By conservation of energy we are to understand that, while matter exists throughout the universe in definite quantity, there is also existing, as an attribute of matter, a definite amount of energy or force; and just so matter is indestructible and unchangeable, just so sure is force or energy indestructible and interchangeable. That is, matter and energy are both indestructible, but force or energy (synonymous terms) is convertible into the several modes of force.
When all the motion of the masses and of the atoms is resolved into repulsive energy, and brought to bear on the elements of matter, I imagine that they must completely fill the bounds or the infinity of space.
When the changes in the material world have been reduced to a constant sum of potential and kinetic energy, inhering in a constant mass of matter, there is nothing left in these changes for explanation.
I think you can see that Blavatsky’s claims were not original to her and that she was merely presenting the popular science of the preceding two decades with an occult gloss. That anyone today could believe Blavatsky invented relativity speaks to the widespread ignorance of the history of science, even among those who have university training in the humanities. The fact that so few understand the foundations Einstein ingeniously built upon (there was physics before him) also explains why Ancient Aliens could claim Einstein’s revelation came from aliens delivering psychic messages through a special receiver in his brain coded for by genetic manipulation of his DNA.
