The Projective Unified Field Theory (PUFT) having been developed by the author since 1957 is applied to a closed homogeneous isotropic cosmological model. A (new) conservation law for the scalaric substrate mass is postulated. This way PUFT leads to a new view on the concept of mass (Mach's principle). Detailed calculations show that the big bang singularity does not occur. Further the well known difficulties for the closed model (Hubble factor, age of the Universe etc.) disappear. Depending on the initial conditions different concrete models are possible. Since the mass density exhibits maxima after the cosmological big start, this fact could be of interest for the forming of galaxies and for other cosmogonic activities.
