**Scientists Solve 50-Year Physics Puzzle**

**Breakthrough Expected to Lead to Major New Discoveries**

Jackson, Missouri. Friday, July 19,
2013:

Edward R. Close, PhD, PE, and Vernon
M. Neppe, MD, PhD, today announced important findings that affect the basic assumptions
of physics and change the way scientists understand life and the
Universe.

*“It appears that our current concept of reality is incomplete,”*Dr. Neppe commented.

*“Dr. Close and I have demonstrated that we live in a 9-dimensional spinning finite reality."*

Working separately for over 50 years
on individual theories, Dr. Neppe, eminent neuroscientist, and Dr. Close,
mathematician/cosmologist and acclaimed environmental scientist, decided to work
together beginning in 2009. Each recognized that their combined expertise in
divergent disciplines offered the potential to maximize and unify their
theories into one coherent model which eventually became their TDVP ‘Theory of
Everything’ model.

**How did the current finding come about?**

In 2011, they began submitting their
first collaboration to scientists around the world for peer review. Their work,
entitled

*Reality Begins with Consciousness*, included explanations of their 'Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm' (TDVP) model. Close and Neppe postulated a reality of 9-dimensional finite-spinning vortices based on known scientific and mathematical data.
In February 2012, a Johns Hopkins
Professor of Astronomy who had been asked to review the material quipped
sarcastically, without having read the details of their work:

*"When you can explain why the Cabibbo Angle is what it is, then I'll believe you."*
The astronomer’s statement was meant
to be a conversation stopper in a closed scientific group. He knew it was extremely
unlikely that the Cabibbo Angle could be explained. After all, for 50
years no scientist had met this challenge, not even the Italian Physicist,
Nicola Cabibbo, for whom the mixing angle is named. Specifically, no-one had
been able to solve the mystery of why the 'Cabibbo mixing angle' in elementary
physical particles was the strange size it was, namely 13.04±0.05 degrees.

*…no-one had been able to solve the mystery of why the 'Cabibbo mixing angle' in elementary physical particles was the strange size it was, namely 13.04±0.05 degrees.*
Dr. Close accepted the challenge and
began working on the mathematics. Working long hours and sometimes going days
without sleep, Close was able to derive the Cabibbo angle using the logic the
two collaborators had developed in TDVP. What he discovered was that the
Cabibbo angle can only be derived from a 9-dimensional model because the
mathematics only works with 9 dimensions, not 8 or 10, or any other number of
dimensions. The calculated values for other dimensional models produce results
that simply do not match what is known about the empirically demonstrated size
of the Cabibbo Angle.

The Close-Neppe 9-dimensional spin model
results for the Cabibbo angle are, as predicted by TDVP, exactly correct,
namely 13.032 degrees (calculated to 5 not 4 decimal places as in the
original empirical Cabibbo finding). Feedback from peer group review
supports this new Close-Neppe finding.

**Why no other theories fit**

No other theories have developed the
concept of finite 9-dimensional rotation. String Theories and M-Brane Theories,
and many of the other theories are promising, but generally involve folding of
dimensions, not spin, as a predominant feature, and do not fully explain basic empirical
derivations such as the Cabibbo Angle.

And so, not only has one of the major
mysteries of physics (the reason for the size of the Cabibbo angle) been solved
by Close and Neppe —a curiosity -- but much more importantly, the Cabibbo
derivation has provided a definite, necessary and new gateway to demonstrate
that there are multiple dimensions of finite reality, and that these have a
specific, defined quality — 9- dimensional spin.

Applying the 9-dimensional spin
approach could lead the way to solving some of the other problems of
science that appear to contradict the standard model or remain unexplained at
this time. The impact of this 9-dimensional spin finding is so significant
that scientists might need to rethink almost everything they've thought before.

**Replication and mathematical proof**

Empirical science requires proof and
findings that can be replicated. Often scientific experiments need to be
repeated, sometimes multiple times, to ensure that there is no error, or that
the finding is not by chance. However, in this instance, because the exact
figure for the Cabibbo angle can be calculated using straight-forward,
well-established mathematics, the proof can be easily checked.

Dr. Close said:

*“Proving the derivation of the Cabibbo angle is simply a mathematical calculation. So it is easily replicable and demonstrable by just doing the calculations. One can even work backwards to check the results and it still works. This is one reason why we can stipulate 9 dimensions, not 8 or 10 or any other number of dimensions. And 9-dimensional spin was exactly what we expected based on our TDVP model. Mathematically testing other models that have not yet been validated or contain conundrums, by applying the logic we have utilized in our 9-dimensional spin reality could prove very interesting. This would generalize the findings to other areas, and would remarkably confirm, I believe, that the prevailing worldview of 3 dimensions of space and 1 of time (3S,1t) is incomplete, and also, that this Cabibbo result is a sound derivation, not just a lucky accident."*
