Max Planck, who discovered that reality is quantized, said:

“As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as the result of my research about atoms, this much: THERE IS NO MATTER AS SUCH! All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”

Albert Einstein added an appendix to his little book “Relativity the special and general theory”: “Relativity and the Problem of Space” only three years before his death to make the point, which he emphasized in a special note to the fifteenth edition of the book, that space has no separate existence of its own.

Hermann Minkowski who developed the mathematics of space-time with time as a fourth dimension, said “Henceforth space by itself and time by itself are doomed to fade away into mere shadows and only a union of space and time will preserve an independent identity.”

In addition, consider what Werner Heisenberg, who developed much of the basics of quantum mechanics said: “We can no longer speak of the behavior of the particle independently of the process of observation.

We (Close and Neppe) upon the discovery of the third form of reality which we’ve called ‘gimmel’, have combined and expanded these facts in the Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) to declare that none of the aspects of reality, space, time, mass, energy, and consciousness, exist independently of each other. The appearance of their independent existence in space and time is an illusion created by the fact that our physical senses are limited to a specific range and depth of perception.

NOTE: Consciousness, as used here is much more than human awareness. Consciousness in this context is the source of all things. Awareness is a function of consciousness.

Reality as we experience it, is the result of the pervasive existence of something that is the real essence of reality, manifesting itself variably as mass, energy or gimmel, according to an intelligently structured vortical flow from an infinite substrate of mathematical logic into the limited dimensional domain of space-time.

The deeper facts of reality are there for anyone to uncover, so I am very grateful that I was blessed to be the one to discover, through mathematical analysis, the third form of reality. I believe the discovery of the third form, necessary for there to be stable structures, is the most important discovery since the discoveries of Planck, Einstein and Minkowski. I also believe that TDVP is the logical extension of those discoveries, and as such would eventually be developed by someone else, had Dr. Vernon Neppe and I not been blessed with the abilities, opportunity and determination to accomplish this.

The validity of TDVP is indicated by the growing list of elegant explanations of puzzles, paradoxes and phenomena unexplained or insufficiently explained by the current paradigm, such as the intrinsic spin of fermions, the combination of three quarks to form the basic building blocks of physical reality and the size of the Cabibbo angle

In addition, the integration of the various geometric, numerical and logical features of reality under the simple mathematics of the Calculus of Distinctions results in the revelation of beautifully elegant patterns. Consider the following examples:

With the Triadic Rotational Unit of Equivalence (TRUE), based on the principles of relativity and quantum mechanics as the basic unit of the Calculus of Distinctions, a number of important integer patterns and equations emerge. 

For example, the masses of the three smallest mass/energy entities, the electron, the up-quark and the down-quark are directly proportional to the areas of the cross sections of their planes of rotation. Their masses in TRUE units are: electron: 12, up-quark: 22, down-quark: 32

The first Diophantine equation of the Pythagorean Theorem, basic to the process of Dimensional Extrapolation is 32 + 42 = 52. And the first Diophantine equation demonstrating the necessity of symmetry, the Third Form and the combination of three quarks to form stable protons and neutrons is 33 + 43 + 53 = 63

It is also interesting for a number of reasons that the number of TRUE units in stable life-supporting elements and compounds is always a multiple of 108 = 11 x 22 x 33.

See Understanding the Nature of Reality below for more details about the Calculus of Distinctions and the Third Form of Reality.


  1. Hi Ed,

    As my mystically-inspired formula, Y (Universal Intelligence) = X (Its Evolutionary Elements 0,1,2,3,4) Squared plus One, still seemingly remains 'officially' unheeded in your ongoing mathematical quest for recognition in respect of TDVP, I feel it now time to air an article, which indeed records your 'unofficial' interest in both my mystical initiation of 1980 and the said formula. In the more important 'cosmicated' interest of the Ultimate Force, our Higher Self, I trust you can accept this disclosure as being well meant and maybe a last resort effort to integrate our at present isolated efforts to give everlasting meaning to our Earthly existence - I again try to rest my case and may UF be with us! Amun!

    The article, too long for this site, is however shown in full on your personal and my Facebook sites. It is headed:

    Brian and Edward R Close – Literally a close-association – Thank goodness!

  2. Because the Dirac equation has four roots, Donald Hotson proposed that everything must be made of electrons and positrons with positive and negative energies. The early universe was composed of neutrons, so he suggested that a neutron must be made of epos. Consistent with this is the observation that the diameter of a neutron is the same as the length of an epo. Hotson suggested that 9180 electron-positron pairs with spin energy in ten dimensions are a stable arrangement, making an object with a neutral charge. It is interesting that 9180 is a multiple of 108.

  3. Ah, yes, an epo is an electron/positron pair.

    1. I haven't had time to look into this, but it sounds interesting, but I don't see how a neutron could be made of epos without them annihilating each other. Ten dimensions might be consistent with TDVP if one of them is transfinite.

  4. nowadays the atom core is modelled with quantum chromo dynamics,
    whereby there are virtual quarks; all this gimmel stuff is highly
    speculative, and even worse, when you Ed already proposed three
    (rotating?!?!?!) dimensions of 'consciousness' you now also are
    adding gimmel which you think of as some conscious stuff;
    sorry but this is worse than astrology. As for the Cabibbo
    angle, which you now printed in bold, you never derived
    this, and you also don't seem to know what it means (hint
    it is a parameter in quantum chromodynamics, quantum
    field theory which is way above your head apparently).
