Introduction

Individual self-awareness is a spiritual gift that was received by certain lucky lifeforms existing on this planet about 6000 years ago. The gift of gifts was bestowed by a vastly more advanced form of consciousness than we now possess, for which we should be forever grateful, because those lifeforms were our ancestors. The sublime gift of individual self-awareness, however, includes the double-edged sword of free will, which makes the prospect of an individual, unassisted by any more advanced entity, accelerating the natural expansion of his or her awareness a daunting, if not almost impossible challenge. At this point in this 12,000-year cycle of planetary time, as spiritual beings occupying physical forms, we have a limited measure of free will, with only a few options to choose from. But the choices we make are critical. They determine, through the inexorable rules of cause and effect, whether we will advance, stall, or regress on our long twisted and tortured journey toward the perfection of Cosmic Consciousness in this lifetime.

 

Some of the choices that are open to us are good and some are bad with respect to the advancement of our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. We have enough intelligence in the innate brain power of the physical forms of our species to analyze our circumstances from day-to-day and make good choices - if we keep the purpose of life and the goal of spiritual advancement in mind. But this is hard. The most basic fundamental choice we have to make is the choice of accepting or rejecting the existence of a higher or perfected form of Primary Consciousness as the source of our being and the reality we experience. If we make the right decision, then the eventual realization of our identity as part of, or perhaps even one with the Infinite is our reason for existing, the purpose of life and our ultimate goal. Whether you choose to work with or against the purpose of existence and the logical structure of the physical, mental, and spiritual reality created for that purpose, is up to you.

 

In the past and future, forever existing in three-dimensional time, the average spiritual virtue of conscious beings once was and will again become much more highly developed than it is now. In those times, average individual conscious beings communicate with each other by the speed-of-light transmission of mental images formed in the individual fields of finite reality by a process that can best be described as the sending and receiving of integrated forms of the complete continuum of energies radiating from objects existing in reality. That spectrum includes the quantized energy frequencies that are received through the five physical senses. The perceptions of light, sound, taste, touch, and smell that we associate with specific objects are relatively small fragments of the total perception that is possible for an individual whose consciousness is fully expanded.

 

When we realize that the gifts of conscious self-awareness and freewill that were bestowed on our ancestors and passed down to us in our DNA make it possible that by choosing wisely, we can eventually become sufficiently advanced physically, mentally, and spiritually to be able to receive and re-create multi-dimensional images accurately reflecting the manifold forms existing in reality and transmit them as meaningful thought forms to other conscious beings, we will be motivated to do everything we can to accelerate the expansion of consciousness. Currently, however, the average individual is effectively imprisoned in a physical body, with perceptions of objective reality fragmented by the quantum mechanical processes of the physical sense organs, and consequently, limited almost completely to indirect interactions with reality and with other conscious beings. Communication of our thoughts is further limited by the uncertainties of language, illogical expression, and the confusion of spoken and written words.

 

In this post, I am trying to explain some very subtle, complex concepts in terms that anyone can understand. What makes this more challenging than it should be, is the fact that certain key words that I must use are used by others, with different educational and experiential backgrounds, to mean something slightly different than what I mean when I use them. In the context of the TDVP model, there are key words that have very specific meanings, so I must define them as clearly as I can. They are sometimes used in contemporary society in vague and confusing ways. For example, we often hear the word “dimension” used instead of the correct reference, which would be “dimensional domain”.

 

Saying that we can “see dimensions” or that we may experience “being in another dimension” are inaccurate and improper uses of the term. Dimensions cannot be seen because, as Einstein said, space and time have no existence of their own. We can see objects that have dimensions, but we cannot see dimensions; and no one and nothing can exist in a single dimension. I have defined key words like dimension in other posts, videos, and various publications about Transcendental Physics and the CoDD, but to avoid the confusion that results from a reader thinking that key words mean something different than what I intend them to mean, I will provide the appropriate key definitions here so that you don’t have to stop to look them up elsewhere.

 

Reality: Everything that exists

Existence: Anything that can be experienced directly or indirectly as objectively measurable forms of mass, energy, and consciousness

Mass: The one-dimensional measure of the resistance of a real object to motion

Energy: The one-dimensional measure of the total force of  angular and/or linear momentum of a real object or system of objects

Vortex: A multi-dimensional object rotating in three or more dimensions (Plural: vortices)

 

[Note: Rigid physical particles cannot rotate in more than one plane at a time, but vortices can, and quantal vortices combine volumetrically, not linearly. This fact, in conjunction with the combinatorial restrictions required by Fermat’s last theorem applied to objects of three or more dimensions, limits the number of elementary vortices that can combine to form a stable complex object to three.]

 

Dimensions: Two-dimensional measurements of extent in space, time, and/or consciousness

Space: A three-dimensional volume created by the existence of real objects

Time: The extent of duration of events that change real objects in any way  

Consciousness: The partial or complete multi-dimensional awareness of reality

Distinction: any finite form that can be distinguished from the rest of reality in any way (Synonym: conceptual object)

Manifold form: A multi-dimensional shape of three or more dimensions

Mathematics: A broad term that includes all logical forms of objective numeric, algebraic, and geometric calculation

Calculation: The process of transforming one distinct objective form into another one, that is equivalent to, but different from the original form by applying one or more of the fundamental operations of mathematical logic  

Calculus: A logically consistent system of operations designed to perform mathematical calculations

The Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions (CoDD): A calculus with the basic rules of  mathematical operations re-defined for calculation in the arithmetic, algebra, and geometry of multi-dimensional distinctions based on the measurable physical characteristics of the electron.

 

The Origin of Logic and the Structure of Reality

Pure mathematical logic arises in human thought as a reflection of the innate structure of a primary form of consciousness existing in all of physical reality, including in the physical structure of our brains. Because of this, a system of mathematical logic using the mass and volume of the smallest and most elementary stable object in the universe, the free electron, as the basic unit of quantum measurement, is arguably the most appropriate calculus we could possibly use to analyze the quantized reality of the physical universe. That is exactly what the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions (CoDD), mentioned so often in these posts, is. Application of this calculus to analyze the physical combination of two up quarks and one down quark combining to form a proton, the building block of the stable structure of the physical universe, was the logical place to start, and that application led directly to the discovery of gimmel, the organizing factor conveying the logical structure of Primary Consciousness into physical form at the quantum level of atomic structure.

 

Mass, Energy, Space, Time, and Gimmel

The next logical step after the analysis of the proton and the discovery of the existence of gimmel, was a CoDD analysis of the simplest atom, the hydrogen atom, which consists of one electron and one proton. What that analysis and subsequent applications of CoDD analysis to the atoms of the periodic table reveals about the nature of reality and the relationship between physical reality and consciousness was simply amazing! More than fifty problems and paradoxes unresolved in the standard model of particle physics were resolved by the discovery of the existence of gimmel. Most of the results of the CoDD analyses have been published in journal articles, blogposts, and books. Lists of dozens of relevant references in the blogsite archives can be accessed by searching for references on the opening page of this blog, and a few of the most relevant are listed at the end of this post. The results of applying the quantum calculus, sometimes called TRUE analysis in the references, agree exactly, or within measurement error, with experimental data and with the conclusions of prominent paradigm breakers like Max Planck and Albert Einstein.

 

In the last appendix added to the last edition of Einstein’s little book, Relativity, the Special and the General Theory, in which he provided “a clear explanation that anyone can understand” in 1952, less than three years before he died in 1955, he concluded that space and time have no physical existence of their own. Applications of the CoDD confirm this conclusion, but it is also true that measurement of the spatial and temporal dimensions of physical objects and events creates the illusions of space and time and reveals the structure of the manifold forms of objective reality.

 

Like space and time, gimmel has no mass or energy, but the existence of specific calculable volumes of gimmel in the protons, neutrons, and electron shells of atoms, explains why the measured mass of atoms that form the physical universe is always greater than the combined mass of the quarks and electrons that are in them. It is because when gimmel expands the spacetime volume of atomic structure to make the atoms stable, it increases the total angular momentum of each atom, which also increases the total mass revealed in experimental data. In this way, gimmel creates the space, time, mass, and energy that counteracts the losses of mass and energy that would otherwise occur due to the vortical expansion of the physical universe.

 

The existence of gimmel in the vortices of the nuclei and the electron energy shells not only fine tunes the physical structure of atoms to make them symmetric, but it also balances them magnetically and electrically. This internal self-contained stability created by the existence of gimmel in atomic sub-structure eliminates the need for phantom particles that impart mass and create mysterious forces to hold the atom together. Without gimmel, there would be no stable atomic structure, and the expansion of the universe toward infinity would accelerate causing reality to approach a state of  maximum entropy in nano seconds, after which there would be no objective reality.

 

I developed a formal proof of the existence of a non-physical third form of reality linking quantized matter and non-quantum receptors in consciousness in 1995 and displayed it as a poster presentation in 1996 at the Tucson II Toward a Science of Consciousness Conference at the University of Arizona, and published it in Transcendental Physics, Paradigm Press, Jackson Missouri in 1997, but that original proof was expressed in the notation of a precursor of the current form of CoDD that almost no one in mainstream science wanted to try to understand. With the help and encouragement of one who did, world-renowned polymath Dr. Vernon Neppe, a conventional mathematical proof of the existence of the third form of the essence of reality was published in the book Reality Begins with Consciousness in 2015, and it was while preparing to write this book that we decided to call the third form of reality gimmel.

 

Gimmel Provides More Answers

After a couple of years of additional research and analysis, I realized that gimmel is empirical evidence of a primary form of consciousness conveying logical structure into physical reality at the quantum level by organizing elementary vortices in the infinitely continuous field of reality to form stable atoms. Thus, gimmel is the long-sought-after link between mind and matter. Discovery of gimmel and its role in creating and maintaining stable atomic structure is evidence of the existence and stabilizing impact of a primary form of consciousness in every atom of the physical universe. Discovering the patterns of gimmel in every atom of the universe is like finding the fingerprints of God all over the reality he created!

 

The existence of gimmel also answers the question that Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz posed more than 300 years ago. He considered this question to be the most important question that science could ever hope to answer when he asked: “Why is there something rather than nothing?” The answer is that there is something rather than nothing because the existence of gimmel makes the stable existence of atomic mass and energy and the measurable dimensions of space and time possible. Furthermore, application of the CoDD to the formation of protons proved that gimmel had to exist before the formation of any stable atomic structure could occur. The prior and continuing existence of gimmel, imprinting the logical structures of consciousness on physical reality, tells us that there was no beginning and can be no end to the existence of physical reality. The forms of reality are continually changing in logical cause-and-effect ways that can be discovered with a sufficiently advanced form of analysis, but the total essence of reality will always exist, in some form.

 

The inescapable conclusion is that there has always been something; and, consistent with the law of conservation of matter and energy, which must also apply to gimmel, since mass and energy cannot exist without gimmel, there never was, is not, and never will be a state of absolute nothingness. In plain English, there is no such thing as nothing. But, because nothing is, by definition, the absence of something, we have fallen into the mistake of thinking of zero as representing the existence of nothingness. In applications of the CoDD, we see that any that concept that can only be represented as one-dimensional is only conceptual, and not part of objective reality. Zero is a one-dimensional concept indicating the absence of a finite localized subset of objects, not a state of absolute nothingness.

 

The Quantum Calculus

Setting the basic unit of quantum measurement equal to the mass and volume of the smallest stable energy vortex, which happens to be the free electron, normalized by the quantized nature of reality, and using it as the primary naturalized unit of quantum equivalence, which I call the Triadic Rotational Unit of equivalence (TRUE), ties the CoDD existentially to objective reality. Because of this link to existence, in application, the CoDD is capable of distinguishing a construct of mathematical symbolism that does not actually exist, from those that do. In this way, gimmel logically distinguishes reality from conceptual fantasy.  The process of  adapting a calculus to logic, was developed by G. Spencer Brown in his book Laws of Form. Providing a detailed explanation of that process is beyond the scope of this post, but is worth mentioning here because, to my knowledge, no one else had done this before Brown did in 1962, or since I first did it1989, when I applied the CoDD adapted for logic to several logical paradoxes in physics, and published the results in Infinite Continuity, unfortunately, currently out of print. 

 

Logical Systems and Personal Conceptual Models

Most of us think that what we believe is firmly rooted in reality, but when belief systems are analyzed and traced back to their most fundamental concepts, we find that the basic ideas about reality upon which they are built, are often unproved and/or temporarily unprovable assumptions or beliefs about the nature of reality. Your brain creates conceptual models of reality from data input from the senses during conscious experiences of interactions with the environment as a critical part of physical survival mechanisms. These models are stored in special brain cells modified for that purpose and kept handy for quick reference.

 

Our personal models of reality are continuously modified, especially when we are young, learning by pain of trial and error about things in the external environment that are dangerous, like hot stoves, venomous snakes, etc. New sensual input is continually compared with relevant details in the conceptual model stored in our brain cells, as our personal model of reality is formed. Because of the importance this model has for our physical survival, it is locked in and accepted by our conscious minds as identical with reality itself. By the time our physical bodies have matured, these models and especially the assumptions buried deep within them, are almost impossible to change.

 

So, we see that our individual belief systems are based on our conceptual models of reality, not necessarily on what actually exists. We experience reality in a very indirect and fragmented way through the physical senses and given the way beliefs are formed and/or adopted, an individual conscious being’s belief system, regardless of how logical and well thought out it may be, may not reflect what actually exists. When properly analyzed using the CoDD, we find that one or more of the underlying a priori assumptions about the nature of reality in many, if not most belief systems are incorrect. If we want to advance spiritually, we have to find a way to correct our erroneous a priori assumptions and move on into the new domain of reality that becomes available to us in the expanded reality of a new paradigm.

 

The Purpose

I have written much about logical systems, conceptual models, and the CoDD because of the important role they played in the discovery of gimmel and the important role I believe the CoDD will play in the science of the future. I also believe that, because the calculus made the discovery of gimmel possible, a basic understanding of it should help readers to understand TDVP. But it is even more important as part a conceptual foundation preparing the reader to see that it is possible to accelerate the expansion of individual consciousness. This is the existential core of the message coming through my meditations, and the reason that I am inspired to write. I keep writing because I know that a verbal explanation, no matter how good, can always be better, and I know that I am just a conduit conveying ideas as best I can, not the source, and the source is available to everyone, so, even if I never write another word, someone will pick up the thread and be blessed and/or burdened to receive even more detail than I have. Infinity is a deep well.

 

I know that this blogpost is already too long, but I am not going to apologize for that because the subject I am trying to cover is wide and deep, and Like Albert Einstein, I sincerely want to provide a clear explanation that anyone can understand. Analytical details, from the logic of CoDD to its application and results, are already available in some form in previous posts and publications, so, for now, I am going to forego describing any more details to connect the dots, and try to make a multi-dimensional quantum leap. Ultimately, my job is not just to teach people how to do math and understand the science, my real mission is to teach you how to expand your consciousness and re-connect with Primary Consciousness and the ultimate experience.

 

Love is The Ultimate Experience

Love is the most wonderful example of infinity. It resolves all opposites. Pure love is infinitely patient, because the essence of Primary Consciousness (God, if you want to think of it that way) is Love, and in love, everything exists exactly as it is supposed to exist. When you are on the ultimate spiritual path, there are no accidents. Your existence at this place and time is no accident. You are not the result of the accidental sticking together of random bits of matter, define by some as debris flying away from an unexplainable explosion billions of years ago. You are something special. Every atom in every cell of your physical body has a specific number of TRUE organizing units of gimmel embedded in it. Every speck of dirt in the universe has millions of organizing units of gimmel. Without them, the logic and structure of the reality being studied by science, and the scientists themselves, would not exist.

It was no accident that my brilliant research partner, Dr. Vernon Neppe, and I happened to be in Amsterdam on the same day to meet in person for the first time, with prior planning on our part. It was no accident that I had a near death experience a week later in the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Ten years later, it was no accident that I stayed longer than planned in Romania. It is no accident when we fall in love. When we realize that the real essence of existence is Love, we fall in love with reality and we know that even the lowliest form of existence is a manifestation of Love, the pure essence of reality, with infinite purpose and meaning, and we know that everything is exactly as it is supposed to be.

The story of your life is already written. The Author of that story knows exactly what you need at every point in your journey to grow spiritually as fast as you possibly can. Everything is provided for that reality. All you need do is choose to re-connect with Primary Consciousness to become Love itself. The final paradox to be resolved is the conundrum that even though, from your point of view as a sentient being, you have the free will to choose, the One whose consciousness is everything, knows what choice you will make, because that One’s time is three-dimensional. In the re-revolving nine-dimensional reality of the cosmos, every event of the past, present, and future already exists.

THE QUESTION WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT ANSWER

 


The Key to the Universe? 

 

ON THE QUESTION OF WHETHER EVERY MEANINGFUL QUESTION THAT CAN BE ASKED HAS A MEANINGFUL ANSWER

© Copyright August 2022, Edward R Close

Can every question that can be asked, have a meaningful answer? You may believe that there is an easy yes or no answer to this question, but before you rush to give your answer, take a few minutes to think about it. This is not a trivial question. If you google it, you will find different answers given by a number of competent thinkers, with a number of different reasons why they believe the answers they give are correct. Their answers range from a definite “yes” to “only if it is a meaningful question” to a definite “no”.

Some answers are worth thinking about before you come to a conclusive answer of your own. Consider, for example, the answer given by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, a German polymath who lived more than 300 years ago. Leibniz developed the infinitesimal calculus at roughly the same time as Sir Isaac Newton, but even though Newton is given credit for “inventing” the calculus in the English-speaking world, it is Leibniz’s notation that we use because he was able to explain why the calculus worked better than Newton did, and his notation was more effective for the dimensional analysis of equations with multiple variables than Newton’s was.

Among the many amazing things that Leibniz did, you will find that he also answered our question in the affirmative, and the prime example he gave to support his answer was his analysis of the question “why is there something rather than nothing?” His answer to that seemingly unanswerable question was: There is something rather than nothing because God created everything that exists, and the Infinite Intelligence that is God has always existed and will always exist. But a number of brilliant thinkers have said no to the question of whether there is an answer for every question for a variety of reasons, and many who have thought deeply about it realize that the question may be as important to us as human beings as the answer may be.

In this post, I am going to agree with Leibniz and answer yes, there is an answer to every question, but my ‘yes’ is a qualified answer, and my reasons for answering in this way are different than the reason given by Leibniz. Not because he was wrong. In fact, it is provable that he was right, but my reason for answering yes differs from his because of the existence of a very important mathematical proof that provides us with information that was not available during Leibniz’s lifetime. That theorem, proved by an Austrian mathematician named Kurt Gödel, is known as the incompleteness theorem.

 

The answer to any question requires a declarative statement. And, according to the theory of types famously developed by Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead, any statement must be either true, false, or meaningless. But, if you have been reading my posts, then you should know that the theory of types was radically amended by G. Spencer Brown in his monumental work, Laws of Form, when he proved that some statements designated as “meaningless” may actually be complex paradoxical statements that include the logical equivalence of complex numbers with “imaginary” components, represented by multiples of the square root of minus one, as, for example, in solutions of certain algebraic equations of the second degree or higher. What does Leibniz’s answer and the incompleteness theorem have to do with whether every question that can be asked has an answer or not? I’m glad you asked, because the answer is related to the extent of our knowledge about the nature of reality and the expansion of consciousness.

The incompleteness theorem proved that there are meaningful questions that can be asked that cannot be answered in the logical system within which they have been stated. Some of the leading philosophers, mathematicians, and scientists at the time the incompleteness was proved to be true thought at first that this meant that there could be very important meaningful questions that could never be answered. But most soon realized that that is not necessarily what the proof of the incompleteness theorem implied. If the system of logic within which a seemingly unanswerable question was asked could be expanded with an appropriate new axiom, then there would actually be a meaningful answer within the newly expanded paradigm.

This truth was proved with applications of Brown’s calculus of indications interpreted for logic in Laws of Form. Application of Brown’s calculus to questions that could not be answered in the existing logical system were shown to produce meaningful answers, if the logical system could be expanded to include the conceptual equivalence of imaginary numbers. He gave examples of intractable engineering problems that were successfully resolved with complex number solutions, and he also provided demonstrations that proved that complicated logical syllogisms can be solved much more easily with the logical system extended to include the equivalence of imaginary numbers, than with complicated classic symbolic logic methods that do not include analogs of imaginary numbers.

Application of the quantum calculus of the TDVP, i.e., the calculus of dimensional distinctions (CoDD), makes this point stand out even more clearly because it deals directly with the dimensionality of the question that is being analyzed. Appearances of imaginary numbers in the solution of a quantized CoDD equation indicate that an additional dimension, beyond the measured dimensionality of the expression of the question is involved, and when the logical system is expanded to include the additional dimension, a valid answer is available. The CoDD solution of the three-dimensional equation representing the combination of two up quarks and a down quark to form a proton is a prime example of this increased clarity. Because the dimensionality of the equation expressing the combination is explicit in the notation, the existence within each quark of specific numbers of quantum units of something we decided to call gimmel is revealed; and surprisingly, the units of gimmel that are revealed represent additional measurable components of reality that cannot be categorized as either matter or energy.

The measurements of finite units of mass, energy, space, time, and their combinations are the only tangible evidence we have of the existence of the physical universe as a separate objective reality outside of the consciousness associated with our individual physical bodies, so now we need to pause and ask exactly what does the existence of something measurable that is neither mass nor energy tell us about the nature of reality? It tells us a lot, including the fact that that nearly 95% of objective reality is non-physical.

I submit to you that this is probably why the inventive genius Nikola Tesla said: “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” The TDVP has explained more than fifty things ignored and unexplained, or poorly explained, in current mainstream science. It is also remarkable that TRUE analysis, based on the mass and volume of the electron and the triad of mass, energy, and consciousness in the drawing of distinctions, reveals the existence of three categories of nine mutually orthogonal dimensions in the six-directional domain of finite reality. Perhaps this is why Tesla also said: If you knew the magnificence of 3, 6, and 9, you would have the key to the universe.

Finally, if every meaningful question that can be asked has a meaningful answer, and we can prove that it does, then we must ask: What is the most important question that can be asked? If we can identify that question, and the existing logical paradigm can be expanded with the inclusion of an axiom that guarantees the existence of the correct answer to that question, then that answer will be the most significant thing that any conscious being can ever discover.

NOW IT MUST BE SAID

 


THINGS THAT HAVE TO BE SAID

© Copyright August 2022, Edward R Close

Entrance into The Mind and the Brain

Where do our thoughts come from? Why do I wake in the middle of the night with a head full of ideas that come from somewhere unknown? Tonight, the thoughts that wakened me just after midnight included: “This has to be said!” As usual, the thoughts that enter my mind in this manner come in triads. Tonight, they were insistent and specific:

1)   “Wake up! This has to be said! You know what the questions are, here are the answers:”

2)   “Judge not, lest ye be judged!”

3)   “You shall know them by the fruits of their actions!”

What were the questions? Recalling them, and the information that links the questions to the answers, was just a matter of reversing the mental process that awakened me and pulling the whole story out of the state of consciousness that I was experiencing while I was sleeping.

The questions were:

1) Why have people become so divided now, that both sides are expecting violence to erupt at any moment and why do they totally believe that it will be instigated by those evil people on the other side?

2) Why are some politicians, people we have elected, and some people in the media, people we used to trust, blatantly lying to us?” Are they truly evil, or are they just misguided and brainwashed by foreign entities that want to destroy our way of life?

3) How can we know who is lying and who is telling the truth?

In the last fifty years, neurologists have mapped the brain pretty thoroughly and we know that when information comes in, in the form of pulses of energy from the sense organs, is it processed and automatically directed along neural pathways in the basal ganglia of the brain that have been identified by science and are well known:

The basal ganglia are collections of grey-matter cells situated deep in the white matter of the cerebral hemispheres. There are four main groups of basal ganglia: the striatum, globus pallidus, subthalamic nucleus and substantia nigra.

These ganglia in the brain are connected by numerous neural pathways. The various inputs from the sense organs are received by the caudate nucleus and the putamen from the cerebral cortex, thalamus, subthalamus, and substantia nigra of the brainstem. The function of  the basal ganglia in these locations is to compare the incoming information with information that has been accepted previously as valid, by the conscious mind of the individual and stored in memory. The new information is either accepted as true or rejected as invalid, on the basis of these comparisons. If accepted, it is integrated as part of the model of reality existing as patterns in the mind of the individual and passed via the previously mentioned numerous direct and indirect pathways on to the globus pallidus, the main output nucleus. The globus pallidus sends the patterns of energy pulses back to the cortex via the thalamus and other structures, along the many direct or indirect pathways, forming a loop that is repeated over and over again, until the new information from the senses that has been verified, is fully integrated into the individual’s conceptual model of reality. This model, whether a true representation of reality or not, modulates that person’s thoughts and actions, both voluntary and involuntary.

The way the brain processes and validates or rejects input explains how we can become so divided. We tend to lose sight of the origin of our conscious thoughts and confuse our internal conceptual models with reality. Our conceptual models are almost always constructed from hearsay. Most of our basic ideas about reality are adopted from the beliefs of other people, mainly people that we trust as authorities because of their position in life or their stated convictions and their strength of personality, not from our own direct experience of reality. This makes us particularly susceptible to the propaganda of those who want to control people for their own personal gain. This brings us to the answers.

The Things that Have to be Said

When we judge those ‘evil’ people on the other side of the deep division that splits us apart around the world today, into those who want government to take care of us and those who don’t, we are falling into the very deep trap that has been set for us by those who are truly evil; and we have become involved in the vicious circle of confusion promoted by ‘we said - they said’ mentality. Once there, how do we know who is the evil lair, and who is telling God’s Truth? Some of us have even become convinced that ‘the truth’ is whatever we want it to be. The slippery idea that we can “re-imagine reality” has become common today. This too, is part of the cleverly evil trap that was laid especially for those of us of European descent during the presidency of Woodrow Wilson (1913 – 1921).

One hundred years later, in 2021, we actually reached the point of fruition of the evil plan, where those who dare to question the authority of government, and even mention the “God”, as a concept to be taken seriously, are immediately condemned as out of touch with “modern thinking”, stupid, and dangerous! The conspirators who put this into motion so long ago, are back among us even now, reincarnated to enjoy the fruits of their actions. Actually, they have been with us all along, gleefully watching the plan unfold, wittingly or unwittingly, as minions of Satan. Yes, my friends, Satan is real. He is to the Author of Reality as anti-matter is to matter. On this earth, he is the equal and opposite force that keeps the duality of material reality going. Of course, those of us on the other side have also been here all along, working to counterbalance the lies and keep truth alive.

In Secrets of the Sacred Cube, a Cosmic Love Story, published in 2019, Jacqui and I provided some of the details of how the opposing forces of good and evil were already playing the game that is going on today on the world stage around 500 A.D., at roughly the lowest point in the dark ages. Eventually, the forces of good will win and the forces of evil will perish because evil is always based on lies, but in the meantime, we must deal with the realities of the conflict.

The message I was asked to bring to you tonight, is that when you judge others in the heat of the battle, you are definitely playing with fire, because you may be unwittingly becoming part of the problem; but you can know who is lying and who is telling the truth by looking at the fruits of their actions. When you do this objectively, without allowing yourself to fall into the trap of judging the wrong people based on a model of reality that you have accepted from others, you will soon see who the players are on each side. When you do, you will realize that the division is not between democrats and republicans or liberals and conservatives, it is between good and evil.

SOLVING THE ULTIMATE PUZZLE

 




SOLVING THE PUZZLE OF LIFE

© Copyright August 2022, Edward R Close

“The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.” – Niels Bohr

 

Introduction

What’s it all about? Well, actually, it is in fact, about YOU! But don’t misunderstand; it’s not about the little egoistic you, sometimes feeling befuddled, struggling like a hapless worm to survive in a hostile environment. It’s not about any of the fake personas that we have created over the course of many lifetimes to cover up the horrible fear of oblivion that grips every emerging conscious lifeform, and from which every ego so desperately desires to escape. No, not any of that nonsense. The real reason that this planet, our solar system, and the billions upon billions of galaxies and stars of the physical universe, expanding into the cosmic majesty of Infinity, and all of the experiences that are available in life, death, and beyond, exist at all, is for the sole purpose of providing you, me, and every soul in existence with opportunities for the real “I Am” to emerge from the muddy darkness of material existence into the Eternal Light of Spiritual Reality, with the full realization of our true nature as bright-shining Immortal Spiritual Beings, filled with the Love and Light of God.

In previous posts, I have taken great pains to point out that the real geniuses of science, the paradigm breakers, Albert Einstein, and Max Planck, have actually agreed with the transcendent realized masters of spirituality and believers in the perennial philosophy, when they said:

 

All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. … We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind.” And “Space and time can claim no existence of their own. … What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. Matter is spirit reduced to a point of visibility. There is no matter. …Time and space are not conditions of existence, spacetime is a model we have developed for thinking.”

 

In this post, I will carry this line of thought further, going beyond the limits of the binary thinking of contemporary science, into the tertiary quantum logic of  the Triadic Dimensional Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) and the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions (CoDD). It is high time for humanity to break out of the materialistic binary thinking of dimensions of space and time, common for the past 3,000 years, and expand into the three, six, and nine dimensions of the quantized reality of Space, time, and consciousness in which we actually exist.

 

Let’s think about this for a minute: When we realize that science is just beginning to emerge from a period of time that included the very lowest point of mental and spiritual virtue on this planet during the last 24,000 years, as explained in The Holy Science by Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, it becomes apparent that binary thinking is a natural mode of thought and communication for the citizens of the planet when the ability to see any deeper into reality is lacking in the consciousness of human beings in general. As thought began to progress beyond the basic requirements for physical survival, and spoken language was slowly developing again for person-to-person communication, drawing, and marking on clay tablets, wood and stone was a natural way to record and supplement memory, which was unreliable and often distorted. Even up to the present time, communication is mostly two-dimensional, whether displayed on the printed page or the screen of a computer. But binary thinking and two-dimensional visualization leave a lot to be desired.

 

The low point in the current planetary time cycle of Planet Earth occurred in 499 AD, but some of the knowledge from the highest point of mental and spiritual virtue in this cycle, which occurred in 11,501 BC, was preserved in stone monuments and recorded in multi-dimensional forms of communication, the remnants of which barely survived in ancient libraries to be interpreted by a few advanced souls who reincarnated for that purpose during the darkest period of planetary time from about 700 BC to 1700 AD. Binary logic is sufficient for mechanical calculations dealing with the concepts of mathematical singularities, one-dimensional, and two-dimensional conceptual domains, but it is woefully inadequate for dealing with the realities of three or more dimensions. The science of the future will have to operate on the basis of tertiary logic and the most basic fundamental operations of arithmetic, i.e., addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, that we are taught as children, will have to be redefined for consistency with the multi-dimensional relativistic quantum calculus that is needed to describe the quantized reality in which we exist.

 

This transition to tertiary thinking is never easy in any time cycle, but it will have widespread application in logic, mathematics, and every field of science. It will also prove to be a necessary transformation in the thinking of the average citizen of human society before we can move beyond identity politics, tribalism, and bloody warfare. Current materialistic binary thinking is not only holding scientists back from even realizing that there is a need for a fundamental change in thinking, but it is also threatening to divide us in a way that could set civilization back, at least temporarily. all the way back to the stone age.

 

Fundamentally, we have to get beyond the barrier created by Bertrand Russell when he broke away from the deeper spiritual thinking of his mentor, Alfred North Whitehead, and promoted binary logic in the theory of types, with the axiom that a statement had to be either true, false, or meaningless. Ironically, the theory of types, even though it identified three types of statements, actually locked us into binary thinking because the third type was discarded as ‘meaningless’. The British logician George Spencer Brown corrected this error and published it in his book Laws of Form in the 1960s. He introduced the fourth type of statement, reflecting the self-referential imaginary numbers of pure mathematics. He described the situation as follows:

 

“In ordinary algebra, complex values (which include real numbers and the square root of minus one) are accepted as a matter of course and the more advanced techniques (of science and engineering) would be impossible without them. In Boolean algebra (and thus in all our reasoning processes) we disallow them. … At the present moment we are constrained, in our reasoning processes, to do it the way it was done in Aristotle’s day.” Brown included complex values as fundamental in the development of his calculus of indications and showed how complicated logic problems could be solved much more easily with application of the primary calculus he developed, than with contemporary binary thinking.

 

Russell acknowledged Brown’s discovery, but unfortunately, the scientific community was not ready to accept it yet, and  Brown suffered a fate somewhat similar to that of Georg Cantor, mentioned in my last post. The fact that people like Ram Das, Timothy Leary, Alan Watts, Charles Tart, and Ed Close were interested in what Brown had to say in the 1960s and 70s, caused most mainstream mathematicians and scientists of the day to shy away from his monumental work as “too esoteric” to be considered seriously. I have relied on Brown’s brilliant work and acknowledged his influence many times, from around 1980 until the present. When my research partner, Dr. Vernon Neppe tried to contact Brown to explain how we were using and extending his work in 2013 or so, he was uninterested. He was busy watching the Wimbledon tennis finals at the time, and asked in an irritated tone; “How did you get this number?” I decided to try to contact him later, in 2016, only to learn that he had passed away in August of 2015, at the age of 93.

 

I need to point out that Laws of Form did not deal with the physics of extra dimensions, even though the similarity of ‘the Form’ to atomic structure was noted, and it was suggested toward the end of the book, that leaving and reentering the form at deeper levels of dimensionality might open the door to a deeper understanding of the nature of reality. But an even more important implication of the quantum calculus of TDVP based partly on Brown’s calculus of indications, with the discovery of gimmel, is the way every conscious being may understand the mystery of life and his or her place in it.

The Puzzle of Life

In one of his most popular songs, John Denver sang a catchy line that goes like this: “Up in the morning, I’m as fit as a fiddle; coffee’s in the pot and cakes on the griddle. Life ain’t nothin’ but a funny, funny riddle! Thank God I’m a country boy!” That expresses one attitude toward life, but of course there are other possibilities. But I submit to you that this is what life is all about: solving the riddle of life and existence. What does it mean to ‘solve this puzzle’? It means resolving the paradoxes and the many polar opposites presented to us by reality, like existence and non-existence, the infinitely large and the infinitesimally small, consciousness and oblivion, stupidity and enlightenment, and life and death.

 

At some point, we have to realize that solving the puzzle of life is what we are here for, and clearly a single lifetime is insufficient for anyone to accomplish this. Many well-known people, and millions of ordinary folks, have memories of past lives that have been verified, I have memories of several, myself, but, despite the fact that the majority of the human beings on this planet profess belief in the transmigration of souls in some form, Western Civilization labors under the delusion that we are given only one life. While it is true that while portraying a specific role scripted by the DNA in the bodies we currently occupy, we have this one life to live, our souls are immortal. This truth was contained in many ancient records that survived the dark ages in the form of what we now call gnostic religious scriptures, but the Roman Emperor Justinian I forced the Bishops of the Catholic Church to remove all explicit references to the immortality of the soul from their teachings under the threat of death, for purely political reasons in his Anathemas against Origen in 553 AD. I have written about this in some detail, partly from past-life memories of that time, in Secrets of the Sacred Cube, a Cosmic Love Story, published in 2019.

 

As most of my readers know, I began my academic career as a student of the basic science of physics at the age of fourteen, inspired by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. I found the undeniable utter simplicity and experimental validation of physics totally captivating. Fortunately, as Einstein and Planck did, toward the ends of their lives, I outgrew that fascination with physicality very early in this life, realizing that there is much more to the reality we experience than matter, energy, space, and time. About a decade ago, a vocal critic of my work developing the mathematics underlying the simplicity of physics, because he was impressed with the way I applied the principles of relativity to the dynamic physical characteristics of the electron, declared that “You may have been a physicist once, but you are no longer a physicist!” Of course, he did not mean it as a compliment, but he was right. I had moved beyond the simplicity of materialism in my thinking, long ago.

 

“A physicist is just an atom's way of looking at itself.” – Niels Bohr

 

Laws of Form, Mathematics of Consciousness, and the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions

The way I expanded my thinking about science and life in general, already many years ago, was by embracing the logical paradoxes and contradictions of mathematics and resolving the epitome of the opposites listed a few paragraphs above: “existence and non-existence, the infinitely large and the infinitesimally small, consciousness and oblivion, stupidity and enlightenment, life and death.” The logical method of the resolution of opposites is something I wish to convey to you in this blogpost. In other words, I would say that in order to solve the puzzle of life and existence, one must adopt the attitude of the Danish Quantum physicist Niels Bohr, who said:

 

“How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.” He also said: “The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.”

 

The same attitude was expressed  by G. Spencer Brown, a British author and logician while discussing his book Laws of Form and his calculus of indications at a meeting in the Esalen Institute in Big Sur California in 1973. He explained to a small group of people on the leading edge of modern thought at the time that the major theme of his work was that the imaginary numbers of Boolean algebra are not really imaginary. Instead, the square root of minus one is a mathematical paradox that expresses the self-referential nature of reality and provides a way to formally expand logic beyond the limitations of simplistic binary thinking. One of the people privileged to attend that meeting, Cliff Barney, pointed out the fact that the square root of minus one is a paradox similar to the self-contradictory statement “This statement is false”. He explained it this way:

 

The square root of minus 1 is a logical paradox; if the "1" is negative, it can't be a square, and if it's a square, it can't be negative. Nevertheless, designers use √-1 in equations while building space ships that real men then fly in. Brown, in his days as a computer engineer, used the imaginary Boolean values to devise a safety system for British Railways that operates by counting and uncounting the number of wheels passing a given point. Real trains use this system, big wheels run by faith and little wheels run by the grace of God.”

To be clear, the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions, the mathematical heart of the TDVP of Close and Neppe, is the logical completion of the transformation from binary thinking to tertiary consciousness, that was started by G. Spencer Brown in Laws of Form. The triadic connection between physics, conceptual modeling, and consciousness was completed when the mathematics and physics creating the stability of the proton and the development of the TRUE quantum equivalence unit based on the mass and volume of the electron led to the discovery of the quantifiable existence of consciousness in the form of a new form of reality that is neither mass nor energy, that we call gimmel. Consciousness, at long last, has been included in the equations describing the reality. Let’s look at what this means in regard to the experience of life and death and the existence of individual conscious beings like you and me.

 

There are three ways, at this time, that individual conscious beings are reacting to being alive: 1) Some assume that life is an accidental by-product of material evolution, and that consciousness is just a temporary freak of nature. Believing this, they try to get through life with as little pain and suffering as possible and welcome the oblivion of death when it comes. 2) Some accept life as a strange, undecipherable puzzle that can’t be solved. Their mantra is: just accept it and enjoy it as much as you can whenever you can. 3) Others see life as having meaning and purpose and as an opportunity to learn and expand consciousness through the experiences of physical existence. If you’ve been reading and understanding my posts, you will know which attitude is the correct one.

    

Once we realize that the sole purpose of everything that exists, from the smallest quantum of mass and energy to the wholeness of the entire cosmos is for the spiritual development of consciousness from the bare awareness of being to the complete enlightenment of Cosmic Unity, the way we look at existence, non-existence, matter, energy, space, time, consciousness, and our own life and death, changes forever. The logical paradoxes, including the paradoxes discussed earlier, and the mathematical paradox of the square root of minus one, when resolved by growing and expanding consciousness, become doorways to the additional dimensions of reality.

 

Solving the Puzzle

When I first read Niels Bohr’s statement quoted at the beginning of this post (“The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.”), I couldn’t think of a single truth, profound or otherwise, that had an opposite that was also true. But once I accepted his statement that paradoxes are opportunities for progress in the expansion of consciousness and began to resolve the paradoxes of contemporary physics and mathematics, examples of what he was talking about popped up like flashes of gold nuggets in the black sand at the bottom of a prospector’s pan. For example, resolving the expanding universe paradox and the God paradox (See my July 16 and July 27 posts.) revealed the fact that the finite mind of an individual could be expanded into the bounded infinite series of the uncountable infinity of infinities of the mind of God. This meant that consciousness, in contrast with the quantized nature of physical matter and energy, is infinitely continuous. That, in turn, implies that, as conscious beings, we are all connected through the infinite continuity of spirit. Thus, the profound truth that in Spirit, we are all one and the same, and the opposite of that profound truth, the fact that every soul is unique (in terms of where that soul is on the journey from minimal awareness to Cosmic Consciousness) is also true!

 

Finally, if we adopt the attitudes of Niels Bohr and G. Spencer Brown, that logical paradox is the doorway to an expanded awareness of reality: accept the conclusions of Max Planck and Albert Einstein that matter, energy, space, and time are human ways of thinking about reality, not reality itself and that the conscious intelligent mind of God is the reality behind it all; and consistently adopt approach number 3, based on the knowledge that life has meaning and purpose as an opportunity to learn and expand your immortal consciousness through the experiences of physical existence, then, with focus, concentration, and will power, you can expand your awareness of reality by resolving the opposites of every logical paradox as they arise, see beyond the limitations of matter, energy, space, and time, and move forward during this lifetime on your own unique path to Cosmic Consciousness.
