“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven”
- Ecclesiastes 3:1

Yes, to everything there is a season; and I believe the time is ripe for a global quantum leap in human consciousness. Not just an increase in knowledge, it must be a triadic leap: a physical, mental and spiritual awakening. Anything less leads to serious problems: If enlightenment is just intellectual and physical, it fosters prideful ego and eventual disillusionment as dissolution of the physical body, i.e. physical death, approaches. Awareness of the triadic nature of reality, on the other hand, reveals a reality of which the observable physical universe is only a small part, and explains why there is something rather than nothing. Triadic enlightenment integrates the logic of science, the philosophy of religion and the expanded awareness of spirituality.
The number of people on this planet ready to make this leap to a comprehensive understanding of reality may finally be reaching critical mass, a necessary condition for the inevitable shift out of the limiting paradigmatic belief in mechanistic materialism that has characterized science, the limiting dogmatic beliefs that have characterized religions, and the unrealistic fantasies that have characterized “new-age” spiritualism. Gradually, a few individuals on the leading edge of the bell curve have begun to transcend the limitations of materialistic science, religious dogma and spiritual fantasy, into an expanded awareness. This book is the story of my personal journey from the confusion of fragmented belief systems to the certainty of triadic enlightenment.
An early version of this book was completed in 1997. It was intended to be a readable introduction to Transcendental Physics, the work I completed in 1996 and published in 1997. Presenting a new scientific paradigm, Transcendental Physics reversed the basic assumption of conventional science, the a priori assumption that consciousness is an epiphenomenon arising from the evolution of matter and energy, with the hypothesis that a primary form of consciousness is the ground from which all patterns of reality, including the physical universe, originate. Transcendental Physics, the book, contained specific, detailed interpretations of complex relativity and quantum mechanics experiments and introduced some new mathematical concepts developed for purpose of putting consciousness into the equations expressing the known Laws of Nature. The Search for Certainty manuscript, on the other hand, was written for readers with less technical training. It traced the development of the ideas behind Transcendental Physics as I had experienced them, and was thus at least partly autobiographical. The purpose was to present the paradigm-shifting ideas of Transcendental Physics in non-technical terms. Dr. David Stewart, who was familiar with and even part of many of the events reported in the 1997 version of the Search for Certainty, reviewed the manuscript, and had this to say:

“For the first time, the common basis for all sciences and all religions is revealed - not in vague philosophical terms, but in concrete ways you can understand and put into practice in your own life. You can take scriptures or the works of science and, by being selective, prove almost anything. But Ed Close, in this monumental work, did not do that. Taking into consideration the totality of physics, both modern and classical, dodging no part of it, Dr. Close has applied relentless and impeccable logic to produce an intellectual triumph of our time, a unified theory that makes science and religion one. This achievement has been claimed by others before, but always there was a flaw. There are no flaws in Close’s paradigm. The search for certainty ends here for those with the capability of comprehending what Close has done for us. Both scientists and theologians, centuries hence, will thank Dr. Close for what he has done for us. This is truly the first mathematically complete articulation of the relationship between human consciousness, divine consciousness, and material reality. This could well be the most important work of the 20th century. What Einstein and his contemporaries started a century ago, Close has finished. And what makes his achievement even more remarkable is that he was able to articulate it in terms the layman can understand.”

I posted announcement of my autobiography on Facebook last night at about 3:50 am. Considering the late hour, there was a huge response. There were also some questions; so I am going to start posting answers and excepts from Search for Certainty here.

I am currently working on my autobiography. The title is “The Search for Certainty, a Personal Journey”, and it is about 90% finished. It tells my life’s story, from an idyllic childhood in the St. Francois Mountains, to solving problems that have stumped scientists for decades, to becoming an international speaker on a variety of topics including environmental engineering, hydro-geology, pure mathematics, relativity, quantum physics, consciousness studies, alternative healthcare, and longevity. It tells the story of how I discovered that I have an IQ of perhaps as much as 30 points higher than Einstein’s, and how I became a distinguished member of three of the most difficult high IQ and Creative Achievement Organizations to qualify for in the world. It relates my experiences on five continents, and unusual experiences in places like the Great Pyramid, the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, and the Puerto Rican Rain Forest. In the process, it gives my answers to the following questions: Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? I will make excerpts available on my Transcendental Physics blog soon, and I am considering making pre-publication purchases available. Let me know if you are interested.

Memories of Other Lives, Fermat’s Last Theorem 
and Particle Physics

The title of this chapter may appear to be a mixture of unrelated subjects. But it is not. I have learned that, in my life, as it must also be in a true theory of everything, there are no unrelated parts. The resolution of the EPR paradox in quantum physics revealed that the consciousness of the observer is part of the observation, and in Transcendental Physics I proposed that consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all being. Consciousness is the only thing we experience directly, and that is why it is such a hard thing to define. We are immersed in consciousness, and we are consciousness. Thus, when we attempt to define consciousness, we are trying to describe the very essence of our own being. As individual sentient beings we contain limited amounts of consciousness, like bottles of water submerged in an ocean of water, except that, in our case, even the bottles are made of water. In this book I will show that the containers of our consciousness, the physical body and brain, which are composed of cells that are composed of molecules, composed of atoms, composed of sub-atomic particles, ultimately are composed of consciousness.
