The proposition that consciousness might directly affect
reality at the quantum level is controversial to say the least. Most mainstream
scientists at the present time are skeptical of this possibility because of the
materialistic metaphysical belief prevalent in the scientific community. This is
not a criticism of science; it is just a statement of fact. Scientists who have
religious or spiritual beliefs often keep their work and their faith separate,
or even hide their religious beliefs for perfectly legitimate and practical reasons
related to maintaining their standing in their careers and society. However, in
fact, there is only one reality.

The proper attitude of a scientist is one of open-minded
skepticism. Scientists who have not had personal spiritual experiences, NDEs, OBEs,
or involvement in consciousness research producing experimental data suggesting
a real mind-matter interface, are likely to be agnostic. This attitude is completely
appropriate for a scientist, but it should not be confused with atheism.
Agnosticism is an attitude of healthy skepticism. Atheism is not healthy skepticism;
it is a negative belief that is based on a lack of evidence and a judgmental
attitude toward the beliefs and/or knowledge held by others.

Does attitude have an effect on the reality we
experience? Yes, of course. There is ample evidence of this. But can individual
consciousness have a direct effect on the nature of reality? Most mainstream
scientists are very skeptical of this, and some flatly say no, even while
accepting the fact that the observer is part of the experiment in quantum experiments
like the double-slit and delayed-choice experiments. A deeper look into
negative assertions like this usually reveals that they are based on materialistic
metaphysical beliefs, not empirical evidence. Atheism has no scientific basis,
and rushing to negative conclusions consistent with atheism, instead of
maintaining the proper agnostic skepticism, is wrong, but understandably human.

This brings me to the point of the importance of the
discovery of proof that a measurable non-physical component (called gimmel by
Dr. Vernon Neppe and me) is a necessary component of reality at the quantum
level for there to be stable subatomic objects and any subsequent complex macrostructure.
This discovery and the development of the quantum calculus (CoDD) with TRUE
analysis makes it possible to investigate the interaction of consciousness and
manifest reality at the quantum level. TRUE analysis presents opportunities to
find out whether there are practical methods that may be used to manifest positive
effects on the logical patterns of reality based on science, not fantasy.

Before we can continue investigating quantum reality
to determine whether or not there are practical ways to consciously manifest
the reality we want to experience, we need to know as much as possible about what
we are actually dealing with physically, mentally, and spiritually. In this regard,
light is an important physical phenomenon that connects the observable aspects
of reality and human consciousness. For this reason, it is important to analyze
the nature of light and understand how it relates to consciousness and reality
at the quantum level. In these posts, my intention is to provide a scientific
basis for understanding these connections and perhaps even to find a way that we
may affect positive changes in reality through direct conscious intent at the
quantum level.

__Light, Consciousness, and
Reality__

Max Planck and Albert Einstein provided two thirds
of the triadic theoretical basis of the TDVP model of reality by establishing the
principles of relativity and quantum physics. The three paradigm-shifting discoveries
of these two great physicists were 1) the quantization of mass and energy, 2) the
constancy of the speed of light, and 3) the hyper-dimensionality of physical
reality. TDVP is simply the integration of quantum physics, relativity, and consciousness
research in a logical multi-dimensional model that expands the theoretical framework
of science to include the three basic aspects of consciousness: individual, transpersonal,
and primary.

The TDVP model completes the description the innate
triadic nature of reality by expanding the physical models of quantum and
relativistic physics to include consciousness. In the TDVP model, the
measurable contents of objective reality are mass, energy and non-physical gimmel,
comprising the triadic contents of the triadic dimensions of space, time, and
consciousness.

Light is the single most important physical phenomenon
illuminating and connecting the content, extent, and intent of reality. As physical
beings, we are able to perceive light at the macro level as a local phenomenon
through our physical senses, but light is also a universal and non-local phenomenon,
permeating and connecting all of the triadic aspects of reality at every level.
The current scientific understanding of the nature of light and its functioning
at the quantum and cosmological levels of reality is superficial and simplistic,
but that is where we must start.

The familiar sinusoidal-curve, two-dimensional representation
of light, depicting wavelength, amplitude, and frequency in one-dimensional
time and two-dimensional space, is incomplete and misleading, because space,
time, and light are subtle multi-dimensional phenomena that cannot be fully
represented in one- or two-dimensional models. In order to investigate the
nature of light in the framework of TDVP, it is necessary to understand the basic
volumetric principles of quantum dimensionometry.

The first principle of quantum dimensionometry is: No
dimensional domain with less than three orthogonal dimensions can contain
quantized volumes of mass, energy, and gimmel. This should be obvious, since a
point, line, or area has no volume.

The second principle of quantum dimensionometry, an
expression of the mathematical invariance of dimensional domains, is: When expanding
the awareness of dimensional domains sequentially, from domains with 1 through
9 dimensions, in the process of dimensional extrapolation, after moving through
each triad of mutually orthogonal dimensions, i.e., after 3, 6, and 9
dimensions, the numerical value of the representative quantum equivalence unit
of measurement changes in form to the next mathematical root of unity, as determined
by application of the Pythagorean theorem. Quantum volumetric measurements in
the 3-dimensional domain are integers, in the 4- through 6-dimensional domains
they are integer multiples of the square-root of minus one, and in the 7-
through 9-dimensional domains they are integer multiples of complex roots of
unity. As a result, equations describing quantized reality in the 3- through
9-dimensional domains must be expressed and solved as Diophantine equations,
where only integer solutions are relevant to the reality experienced by finite conscious
beings.

The third principle of quantum dimensionometry is: All
experiences of finite space, time, and consciousness occur within the expanded
9-dimensional domain. This has to be true, because when awareness of reality is
expanded beyond the 9-dimensional domain, the units of measurement are multiples
of hyper-complex roots of unity. The multipliers, however, cannot be integers
since, if they were, no projections into the higher dimensional domains would result.
Therefore, while reality is infinite, all of finite reality at any point in
planetary time, is describable within a 9-D model, and higher dimensional
domains are probably infinitely continuous, not quantized.

Applying TDVP analysis to the phenomenon we call
light, using the quantum calculus (CoDD) with its quantum equivalence unit (TRUE),
provides a much more detailed understanding of the nature and function of electromagnetic
radiation. In this post, I will try to explain this mode of analysis verbally,
avoiding mathematical notation and jargon as much as possible. Let’s start with
the concept of constant light speed.

Because I want to reach readers who do not necessarily
have much training in the physical sciences, I need to explain that in physics,
the terms speed and velocity are not synonymous. Speed is defined as the rate
of motion of an object relative to the conscious observer in units of distance
traveled per unit of time, making it a binary concept, while velocity is a triadic
concept, consisting of the distance traveled, the time it took, and the direction
of travel relative to a specific inertial reference frame. You also need to
know that inertial reference frames are defined as arbitrary systems of
coordinates used for measurement of the extent and content of real phenomena.
An inertial reference frame is a geometrical framework established in relation to
an arbitrary zero-point that is stationary and unaccelerated relative to the conscious
observer constructing it.

A unique characteristic of electromagnetic radiation,
of which visible light is a minor component, is its speed (not its velocity) is
always constant, i.e., the same, relative to its source and all conscious observers
regardless of their relative motions. This means that there is no universally preferred
reference frame for observation because physical observation is dependent on
the propagation and reception of light in the consciousness of an observer. Thus,
the second principle of relativity (there is no preferred reference frame) is a
direct result of the first principle of relativity (light speed constancy). This
is just one example of how the basic principles of reality are interrelated.

While the math is well beyond the scope of this
post, the reader should be able to visualize the vibratory energy of light as a
3-D phenomenon, expanding at a constant rate of speed in all directions through
the 3-, 6-, & 9-D nested domain of space, time, and consciousness. For the
speed of expansion to be constant, relative to the inertial reference frames of
all possible conscious observers, the measurements of space, time, mass, and
energy must vary by specific amounts for each observer, in the exact mathematically
predictable way determined by the well-known Lorenz transformation equations. The
only variable parameters in these determinations are the observers’ velocities
relative to the light source.

Thus, it appears that constant light speed implies something
very surprising about the nature of the reality we experience. What it implies
is certainly counter-intuitive, and it profoundly changes the way we must think
about and look at reality. The most basic measurable aspects of physical
reality: space, time, matter, and energy, are not independent of the consciousness
of the observer in the way that we have assumed based on the limited input of
our physical senses. The physical universe can no longer be considered to be the
largely unaffected background of human events that we have assumed it to be.

This surprising implication of light-speed constancy
has been hidden from us as conscious human observers by the limitations of the organs
of physical sensing through which we observe reality. Now that we know that the
physical universe and consciousness are intimately related aspects of one eternal
self-consistent and self-referential system of space, time, matter, energy, and
consciousness that we call reality, the question becomes how can we use this
knowledge to manage our existence in a way that will effectively enhance our
appreciation and enjoyment of existence? Specifically, does this knowledge
provide a way for us to affect positive changes at the quantum level?

Because this discussion contains complex concepts
that must be pondered, understood, and thoroughly digested to form a sound basis
for subsequent discussions about spiritual consciousness expansion, I will
pause here.
