“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.” Nikola Tesla
Starting with the Triadic Dimensional Distinction Paradigm (TDVP) hypothesis that the substance of reality exists in three forms: matter, m, energy, E, and consciousness, C, interacting in a nine-dimensional domain: three of space, and at least one of time and one of consciousness, embedded within an open, and therefore infinite, multidimensional conscious domain, and applying the logic and mathematics of the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions and Dimensional Extrapolation, I obtain the same value for the percentage of observable versus "hidden" substance of reality found by cosmologists seeking to determine how much of the substance of the universe is observable and how much is hidden as the mysterious substance called “dark” matter and energy. My analysis started at the smallest possible scale of quantum reality, while cosmological probes, including the most recent, the Planck Space Laboratory, start at the other end of the spectrum, the galactic and universal scale. Both approaches conclude that only about 4.9% of the universe is available for observation with the physical senses and technological extensions available to us at this point in the history of the science and the search to define the nature of reality.
The conclusions of the Planck Probe cosmologists are based on the standard model of an expanding universe derived from observational data and solutions of Einstein’s equations of general relativity, while my conclusions are based on the basic hypothesis of TDVP outlined above.
The major difference between the two theoretical pictures is that mainstream cosmology has no answer for the question of what dark matter and energy are, while TDVP identifies it as the original or primary form of consciousness. The conscious substance, C, and dark matter/energy are one and the same thing.
The fact that mainstream relativistic cosmology and TDVP find the same percentage of the universe observable as ordinary baryonic matter and energy strongly suggests that TDVP is compatible with both relativity and quantum physics, and answers questions that neither relativity nor quantum physics as they are currently formulated can.
