THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING
At 7:00 AM, this morning, February 27, 2015, I googled “Theory of Everything”. Sites with information on the new movie about the life of Stephen Hawking came up first, and my post, “THE UNIFICATION OF QUANTUM PHYSICS, RELATIVITY AND THE TDVP THEORY OF EVERYTHING”, with 15,940 views, came up next.
Like the character, Walter O’Brien, says in the intro to the TV series “Scorpion”, I have one of the highest IQs ever documented. But, I quite agree with Stephen Hawking when he says “people who brag about their IQs are losers”. So, why would I say such a thing?
I am saying it because it is true. I am a “Distinguished Member” of the most restrictive high IQ organization on the planet, even though I didn’t seek that membership, and I am saying it to get your attention, because I believe it is vitally important, even crucial for the future of humankind, that the world understands what a real theory of everything has to be.
I admire Stephen Hawking and honor him for all he has accomplished, but note that, in his 1988 book, “A Brief History of Time”, he predicted that a theory of everything would be in hand by 2000. That didn’t happen, and since then, at least a dozen books have been published by or about Stephen Hawking and the theory of everything. But still, no theory of everything.
Hawking thinks that M-Theory is best candidate. He says it is “a theory that unites all five string theories, as well as super gravity, within a single theoretical framework, but which is not yet fully understood”. The M-Theory, however, is not a theory of everything. Why? Because it simply does not include everything! There are no variables in the equations of M-Theory for consciousness. Consciousness connects physical reality with spiritual reality, giving rise to the better qualities in human beings, like honesty, integrity, loyalty, reverence, compassion, and love, yet it is nowhere to be found in any of mainstream science ‘theories of everything’.
Why would scientists call a theory restricted to physical phenomena a ‘theory of everything’? It’s simply because physicists focus on physics. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. I know this well, because of my years of training as a physicist and mathematician.
The portrayal of a ficticious young theoretical physicist, Dr. Sheldon Cooper, on the TV show “The Big Bang Theory” is an exaggeration for comedic effect to be sure, but the character does resemble some intelligent people I know. But, be assured, a real theory of everything is not going to come from highly educated individuals, however high their IQs may be, if they are adolescents spiritually, socially and emotionally handicapped as a result.
Physicists have been seeking a ‘theory of everything’ ever since Albert Einstein spent his final years trying to find a unified field theory. But, by ‘a theory of everything’, physicists simply mean a theory that will accurately explain how mass and energy interact in space and time, from the quantum level to the level of galaxies and the whole universe. Such a theory should answer many questions about the physical workings of the universe and advance modern technology, but cannot answer many of the really important questions like: Why is there something rather than nothing? What is the ultimate nature of reality? What is the meaning and purpose of life? What is consciousness? And how does it relate to physical reality? Who or what are we? Where did we come from, and where are we going?
Dr. Vernon Neppe, MD, PhD, an internationally renowned neuroscientist, and I, with the combined experience of nearly 100 years as scientists, have developed the Triadic Dimensional Vortical Paradigm (TDVP). TDVP provides a new, comprehensive basis not just for physics, but for all of the sciences, including the life sciences, psychology, studies of consciousness and even rare event phenomena. TDVP answers many of the most puzzling questions of modern physics, unifies classical science, modern science and parapsychology, and provides answers to more important questions about the purpose and meaning of consciousness and life in the universe.
