A SUMMARY OF WHAT HAS BEEN COVERED SO FAR
A SUMMARY OF THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WHAT HAS BEEN COVERED SO FAR
Most people think of modern science as making slow but sure steady progress, increasing our knowledge and understanding step by step. And this is true within a given paradigm. But paradigm shifts, like Einstein’s relativity and Bohr & Heisenberg’s quantum mechanics, come about as revolutions. See Thomas Kuhn’s work: “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions”. New scientific paradigms are resisted vehemently by the scientific establishment because of their investment in the existing paradigm. For example, Galileo derided Kepler’s idea that the gravitational pull of the moon affects ocean tides, as “paranormal” and “childish nonsense”. You may not realize that Einstein’s ideas were ridiculed as “utter nonsense” by the mainstream physicists when his first paper was published in 1905. And plate tectonics, a major geologic breakthrough,was labeled “a crackpot idea” by mainstream geologists as late as the 1960s.
Albert Einstein was lucky. Max Planck, who happened to be the editor of the Physics journal “Annalen der Physik” in Germany in 1905, saw the importance of Einstein’s paper on Special Relativity, titled “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”, and published it. A paper like Einstein’s would never get published in today’s scientific journals, because it listed virtually no references, and had no peer reviews. Einstein’s revolutionary ideas were ridiculed by most mainstream scientists until it was carefully proved and validated by real-world observations. Transcendental Physics and TDVP are in the same position because they represent a true shift in the scientific paradigm out of the dead end of materialism, including consciousness as a real and important part of the physical universe. And we have proof and validation.
By its very nature as a new idea, a paradigm shift can have few references to publications by mainstream scientists working within the current paradigm, and of course there will be few willing peer reviewers. So, in the beginning, a paradigm shift has great difficulty gaining the attention it deserves. This is the current situation for Transcendental Physics and TDVP, so I am undertaking a novel approach by appealing to the general public in this series of video presentations.
A new scientific paradigm is difficult to get across to people steeped in the current paradigm because it challenges their cherished belief systems. And a scientific paradigm shift is necessarily complex, so that in the rigorous presentation of the welter of new ideas it is easy to miss seeing the forest for the trees. For these reasons, after the posting of ten explanatory videos, I am offering a summary that I think will be helpful for readers, before going further into the details of the empirical, mathematical and logical proof of the validity of the new consciousness-based paradigm.
Here is a list of the videos posted so far:
#1 Science & Spirituality TV (Intro)
#2 The Real Theory of Everything
#3 Who are Close & Neppe?
#4 The Vision
#5 What is Unique about TDVP?
#7 Uniting Science & Spirituality
#8 The Most Important Question
#9 Symmetry & Stability
#10 The Electron, Relativity & TRUE Units
Videos #1 through #7 are mostly background and preliminary to the next three and those yet to come. Videos #8 through #10 present the logical physical and mathematical basis for TRUE units. The TRUE unit is the logical basic unit of measurement for all observations and measurements in our quantized universe. They are similar to Planck units, but Planck units, limited to the materialists’ reductionist approach, do not include consciousness. Video #10 specifically describes the application of the principles of relativity and quantum mechanics to the electron to define the TRUE unit, and in the process, describes the discovery of the actual shape of the electron.
Video #11, which I will be posting shortly, is titled “TRUE UNITS, FERMAT’S LAST THEOREM AND PARTICLE STABILITY”. It will describe the application of TRUE unit analysis to electrons, protons, and neutrons, the elementary particles that make up virtually all of the observable universe. It also introduces the third form, in addition to mass and energy, of the essential stuff of reality, and explains why a third form is necessary, and why quarks combine in threes. Videos #1 through #11 set the stage for additional videos explaining how a primary form of consciousness creates and sustains the universe we experience, and how finite entities of individualized consciousness, like you and I, participate in creating the reality we experience.
