Explaining psi phenomena by applying TDVP principles[1]: A preliminary analysis  

Vernon M. Neppe MD, PhD, FRSSAf b and Edward R. Close PhD, PE [2][3][4]f


This paper consists of a fifteen-part, lengthy series of articles. We examine how the various manifestations of psi phenomena can be explained by applying the Neppe-Close Triadic Dimensional-Distinction vortical paradigm. Importantly, the psi descriptions are examined non-prejudicially, irrespective of whether these psi phenomena truly exist.
However, the overwhelming frequentist statistical data for the existence of psi phenomena are listed, and the explanations posited support its existence. Nevertheless, we examine the theoretical assumptions that these phenomena do happen and need to be understood. 
To facilitate the contents of each part, we include the abstracted headers in bulleted form. This allows for a more adequate summary. The 14 parts are as follows, with part 12 having 7 sub-sections:
What is psi and how should we explain it? (Part 1) 
Statistical demonstrations of psi (Part 2). This part discusses the 9 six-sigma protocols, plus spontaneous information, the confounders and how these extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Theoretical bases to analyze psi (Part 3)
Revisiting TDVP: Can we use it to explain psi? (Part 4) 
Linkages with non-locality and psi: A perspective (Part 5)
The Broader Perspective of “Non-locality” (Part 6)
Consciousness: A brief voyage linked with psi and “Non-locality” (Part 7)
Toward a method of proof for added dimensions (Part 8)
Relative and dynamic psi, and gimmel: The non-local variants (Part 9)
Esoteric non-local variants of delta (Part 10)
Revisiting terminology: Relative, framework and immediacy in psi (Part 11)
Vortical indivension: A major mechanistic breakthrough in Dimensional
Biopsychophysics (Part 12)
Special concepts in the anomalous process (Part 13)
        Failure to replicate: Vortical indivension explains an important psi and every-day life finding (Part 13A)
        Quantum receptor collapse or superposition is explained by vortical indivension. (Part 13B)
        Dimensions and dilemmas. (Part 13C)
        The Infinite (Part 13D)
        TDVP and Life tracks: Speculations that fit the model (Part 13E)
        TDVP propositions on survival and life (Part 13F)
        Reincarnation: The great speculation. (Part 13G)
        Free-will and Volumetric Time: A TDVP perspective (Part 13H)
Summation: Psi and TDVP: Two concepts that are synergistic (Part 14)
Explaining psi phenomena by applying TDVP principles: References (Part 15)

This interim paper will now be further peer-reviewed and a final version posted later. f The current article is based on several different sources. A major initial source was our book Reality Begins with
Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift that Works (Fifth Edition) 2014. 1 These chapters discussed the statistical data on psi and the originally proposed concepts of relative non-locality and its different frameworks plus concepts such as vortical indivension. 2  We acknowledge, too, the Pacific Neuropsychiatric Institute as well as the journals Explore and the Journal of Consciousness Exploration and Research that have published our original articles which link the area of non-locality, though these parts have been significantly modified.
