The Answer Without a Question

© Copyright 2022, Edward R. Close


Distant Memory

Low clouds were roiling overhead, and everything was wet, but the rain had stopped when the coach pulled up. The horse nearest me shook itself as the driver stowed his whip in the tubular scabbard beside his seat. Stepping down, he opened the door to the coach. The man inside was a rather ordinary looking man, about twice my age. - I think I was about thirty, and he was about sixty. -  No one would guess that he was world-famous, I thought. He called my name with a question mark at the end, and his crisp Hochdeutsch, with a local Eastphalian undertone put me at ease. “Ja, das bin ich!” I answered, and he gestured to the seat opposite him, and as I climbed in, I noticed that he was seated in a curious little square, upholstered swing seat hanging from springs on sturdy hooks, and it was also mounted on springs below. Shock-absorbers, I surmised. As the coach began to move on, he explained: “I write while I travel, and this keeps the hand and writing pad more coordinated!”  

“Newton’s laws of motion.” I commented.

There was a hint of a frown, but he said with a smile: “Das stimt!” (Right!)

We hadn’t met before, but we had been writing back and forth for some months, discussing mathematics, natural science, philosophy, and other subjects of mutual interest, and we had found that our views were generally compatible. A recommendation from Herr Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz would go a long way toward getting me the teaching position I was seeking at the university in Giessen. Leibniz was traveling between Leipzig and Hanover, which made it convenient for us to meet, as I was in Halle on business. After a few kilometers, we stopped at a roadhouse for refreshment.

What I remember most about this trip was the strange reaction of the local folk when they asked who these strangers were descending into their midst, and my traveling companion answered with his name. A ripple of raised eyebrows and muffled laughter passed around the room. I think I even heard more than one tongue in cheek: “Ja, doch!” (yeah, sure!). They simply didn’t believe him! “How rude!” I thought. Leibniz was more famous across Germany at that time than even Frederick, the Hohenzollern King of Prussia! But he held his hand up and said “Ja, ich gestehe. Ich heise Wille Schmidt!” (I confess. My name is Willy Schmidt!) They all laughed aloud and turned back to their bier and bratwurst.

I realized that they expected Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz to be larger than life, and so impressive that anyone would step aside to allow him to pass. At public appearances and for portraits, Herr Leibniz always dressed like royalty and wore a majestic wig, while this ordinary looking little man in traveling clothes was quite unimpressive - and bald! I imagined he had experienced this kind of reception before, and of course, he had no need to prove his identity to anyone here!

This memory is typical of a past-life memory for me: just a little snippet, like a trailer from a movie, with definite audio-visual detail and the emotional content of a shocking, embarrassing, or surprising event. I never seem to know what year these memories come from, but that’s no different than memories from earlier in this life. After this memory surfaced and was verified, I was able to determine that it probably occurred around 1706 or 1707. I knew that my name then was Johann but determined only after the verification that I was Johann Georg Liebknecht. My interests then were almost identical to my interests now: The mathematics of Pierre de Fermat, science, linguistics, geology, fossils, stone-age artifacts, spirituality, music, natural medicine, and longevity. I had a family to support, and I needed that teaching position.

I have written about memories like this that appear to come from at least six or seven other past lives, and there are probably many more. I almost feel that I can say, like Mark Twain, that I have been reborn more times than anyone except Krishna! But the normally hidden nature of reincarnation is not the focus of this post, I want to talk about other things hidden in plain sight.


The Hidden Variable Measurement Problem

Austrian-born Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein, considered by some to be the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, said:

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent. 

That sounds pretty profound, but it has been my experience that philosophers are some of the most verbal people alive. They never remain silent for very long about anything, even something “whereof one cannot speak”!

Mathematicians certainly aren’t silent either. In 1987, mathematician John Stewart Bell published an interesting little book with the intriguing title:  Speakable and Unspeakable in Quantum Mechanics: collected papers on quantum philosophy. In this book, Bell summarized the famous EPR paradox paper, and the public debate between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality. The Einstein Podolsky Rosen (EPR) paper used a symmetric sub-atomic reaction to try to make the point that the Heisenberg uncertainty principle was violated in this specific case, but the debate was really over whether science is deterministic or probabilistic. Is nature governed by cause-and-effect laws, or by statistical probabilities? Is reality logically ordered and governed by exact, discoverable mathematical formulas, or basically chaotic with occasional stabilities that only show up in statistical analyses? I had some good debates on this subject with my boss and friend, Dr. Nicholas C. Matalas, Harvard PhD probabilist and Director of the US Department of Interior Systems Analysis Group, of which I was one of the seven charter members. Even though we argued passionately about determinism vs probabilism, we always remained good friends. We just agreed to disagree. It is worth noting that Bell, who I think was originally sympathetic with the point of view famously expressed by Einstein when he said: “God doesn’t play dice”, was the one whose work ended up favoring Bohr.

In 1964, Bell derived what has been called “Bell’s Theorem” an argument designed to determine from experimental data who was right, Einstein or Bohr; but it was not actually a mathematical theorem. It was a probabilistic inequality that, when applied in experiments designed for that purpose in1982, upheld Bohr’s side of the EPR paradox debate. Because of this, many considered the matter closed. But one unspeakable thing that must be said, is that the violation of Bell’s inequality by the statistical analysis of experimental data does not settle the measurement problem or eliminate the possibility of hidden variables.

Both problems were finally resolved only recently by the discovery of gimmel, the measurable non-physical part of reality. It turns out that the measurement problem was both caused by and hidden by the improper use of a calculus designed for application to continuous functions that is therefore unsuited for the analysis of quantized phenomena. A quantum calculus based on the smallest stable quanta, i.e., the mass and volume of the free electron as the true quantum equivalence unit, was needed. I introduced such a calculus in 1997 in my third book, Transcendental Physics, and I joined forces with Dr. Vernon Neppe in 2008 to develop it further. We called the quantum equivalence unit the Triadic Rotational Unit of equivalence (TRUE) and used it as the basic unit of measurement for the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions (CoDD).


Matter, Energy, Space, Time, and Nothing?

These four things: matter, energy, space, and time, are the primary measurable features of reality. All things appear to be made up of solid matter, to occupy space, and to interact energetically over time. And these four basic aspects of reality can be observed and measured by anyone. But, after the discoveries of relativity, quantum physics, and non-physical gimmel, mathematical physics, the most objective, no-nonsense science, tells us that things are not what they seem. As we look more and more closely, we see that matter is not solid, mass and energy are just two of the three forms of the essence of reality, and space and time have no independent existence of their own.

Applying the CoDD of the Triadic Dimensional Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) has revealed the hidden existence of a measurable third form of reality, that in union with mass and energy, makes up all of the stable structures of the physical universe. This third form of reality, which we call gimmel, although measurable in the same quantum units as mass and energy, cannot be mass or energy. It is, therefore, non-physical. Further analysis of this non-physical subatomic something reveals that it is nothing other than the manifestation of Primary Consciousness at the subatomic level organizing, expanding, and re-absorbing mass, energy, and consciousness. In other words, gimmel facilitates the process of physical reincarnation on the quantum scale.

Further inquiry reveals the real meaning, purpose, and logical intent of the existence of reality: The physical universe exists solely for the purpose of providing a venue for the spiritual evolution of individual consciousness in union with organic lifeforms. Every sentient being alive experiences consciousness through the stable structures of mass, energy, and gimmel.

Both Primary and individual consciousness are expanding with time, so a clear understanding of the triadic nature of time, galactic, planetary, and individual, is imperative, especially if you want to break out of the slow expansion of your individual bit of consciousness over many lives in planetary time to accelerate the expansion of your consciousness and propel your soul more rapidly toward the grand goal of Cosmic Consciousness.  

Time Without End

I found myself in that familiar brightly lit room again; the room with white marble walls and floor, shelves filled with books, and a feeling of anticipation. It was very familiar. I was on the Threshold, a place of conscious transition. I remembered being here just before my life as Edward Roy Close began (See the first blogpost of this series: Threshold, 12/24/2021) when I was told: “This is the Threshold. A place where the past, present, and future are all present, … on the Edge of Infinity.”.

The end of the room was open, and far below was the world of human beings with its history recorded in the layers of the Earth’s crust, from the solidified lava of the pre-Cambrian to the buried Neolithic of the present. Two questions immediately came to mind: What was before the pre-Cambrian? And what lay at the opposite end of this room? As soon as the questions formed in my mind as specific thoughts, I knew the answers. It was an instantaneous fulfillment of the promise: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” - Matthew 7:7

My questions were about two separate locations in spacetime. The answers came from an expanded view of reality that exposed the three-dimensional nature of time that was hidden in plain sight. Just beyond the doors to this room lay my real home; but I could not go there just yet. In Earth’s planetary spacetime, before pre-Cambrian time, and after the slowly moving present, there are endless cycles of time, spiraling backward and forward, providing endless venues for the spiritual evolution of individual conscious entities, existing as finite quantized manifestations of consciousness in an infinitely continuous reality.

After returning from this experience, I finally understood the paradoxical conclusion that I arrived at in 1989 through the application of the CoDD to the red-shift big-bang expanding universe hypothesis: There was no big bang because there is no such thing as nothing, there never was, and never will be. That means that there is an answer for which no question is sufficient: Reality exists because is always has, and always will, due to the conservation of the essence of reality, including consciousness.

In the next post, I will explain where mainstream science went wrong, and how what we know about the planet Earth, actually validates the TDVP conclusion that we exist in a no-big-bang infinitely recycling universe.

Accelerating Consciousness Expansion

© Copyright 2022, Edward R. Close



There are as many methods to accelerate consciousness expansion as there are people who have done it. However, that’s still a very small number, relative to the number pf people who claim to be enlightened. There are many fake gurus. That’s part of the evil side of human consciousness, call it duality, Satan, Lucifer, or whatever. How can you tell a real spiritual teacher from the want-to-be gurus? By the fruits of their actions. If a self-proclaimed know-it-all’s personal life is a mess, why would you take advice from him?

Fortunately, there are a few who have already expanded their consciousness all the way to the Ultimate goal of Cosmic Consciousness, either in this life, or in previous lives. Yes, this can happen even during these dark times while the mental and spiritual virtue of the average inhabitant of this planet is very low; and when you are ready, it will happen to you.

I have been blessed to meet a few of those who have expanded consciousness beyond the current prevalent level. One began a talk about the Ultimate, saying: “The Spiritual Masters of all ages have reached the Ultimate, but there is a problem: how can it be explained to those who haven’t?” No word can describe the Ultimate, no group can achieve it, and those organizations that aspire to achieve the ultimate, quickly become subverted by the innate evil of this world lurking in our minds, unseen in plain sight! This is why I recommend avoiding becoming involved with institutionalized organizations as much as possible. It is best to embark upon the path of consciousness expansion without pre-conceived religious, philosophical, or scientific notions, because they are effective mental barriers to spiritual progress, blocking the direct experience of reality. Adopting someone else’s belief system is like trying to see the sunrise while covering your head with a blanket.

Before I write about practical techniques of consciousness expansion, it is incumbent upon me to try to dispel the popular delusion about science and religion, if I can. As they exist at this time on this planet, organized science and organized religion provide fertile grounds for the trickery of the forces of evil. Both mainstream science and world-wide religious organizations entail belief systems that invite you to blindly engage in unquestioning acceptance. Real science and real religion do not require mindless compliance and they are not antithetical. Both should be dedicated to finding the truth about the nature of reality. When fully integrated, they will comprise the one and only true religion. But right now, this world has many false religions.

There is one very powerful false religion griping the world today, and it’s hidden in plain sight. It’s called mainstream science. That title is very misleading. Big science is no longer real science. It has been politically corrupted and turned into a money-making, brain-washing scheme for the ultimate social evil of soul-destroying dialectic materialism. Like any other religion, natural science started off with honest inquiry and good intent, but in just a few hundred years, it has become the opposite of what was intended. The more powerful mainstream science becomes, the more it works to undermine and shut down any thinking that is not consistent with its paradigm. It especially deplores the objective investigation of non-physical phenomena and spirituality.

Like any other corrupted belief system, it has become a powerful mechanism that is used by the egoistic tyrannical elite to control the masses through the carrot and stick of material rewards and fear of annihilation. Like any other false religion, it has to put down free thought. An enlightened proletariat is a threat to the ruling class today, exactly the same way it was in 553 A.D., when Justinian I subverted the real spiritual content of the teachings of Jesus in early Christianity by crucifying its Jewish leaders and putting what Justinian saw as a growing cult threatening his absolute authority, under the control of the Holy Roman Empire. See Secrets of the Sacred Cube, A Cosmic Love Story, Part VI, Patterns of Good and Evil, Outskirts Press, 2019 for more detail.

I have spent a large part of my life studying to become a scientist, earning degrees, teaching math and science, getting science-related jobs, and working as a scientist. The biggest mistake that honest people who identify themselves as members of mainstream science can make, is to allow themselves to fall into the trap of believing that no one knows more than they do. The moment you fall into the delusion that no thought has any value unless it is recognized by mainstream science and fits into the mainstream paradigm, you are no longer likely to make much real progress, because you have become a member of the religious cult of scientism. Just like members of a religious sect who believe that only they are going to Heaven, members of the cult of scientism believe that only they have found the real path to truth and utopia.

Like every religion, scientism, had exciting potential for doing good when it began with the magnificent discoveries of a few very brilliant people. But the light brought into the world fades when the geniuses are gone, and lesser beings take over to institutionalize the teachings and discoveries. Just a few years ago, I realized that the science I was enthralled with when I first found Albert Einstein’s relativity, had been subverted by the evil of egoism. The realization struck home when I heard a leading scientist seeking publicity say: “We are nothing but debris flying away from a big explosion!” And I heard a young woman in an interview on national TV, say: “I am a scientist, so of course, I am an atheist.”

When I decided to become a theoretical physicist, I didn’t sign up to be an atheist! Far from it. On that summer evening in 1951, standing on the bank of that farm pond less than a mile from where I now live, I called out to God, and He answered! Suddenly, my consciousness was expanded beyond my comprehension, and immediately I saw the Holy Spirit glowing in everything around me and heard the sound of silence reverberating in my soul. You can read my account of that experience on page 43 of my first book, The Book of Atma, Libra Publishers, New York, 1977, if you want. From that moment on, I knew that real science and real spirituality are actually one and the same thing. There’s only one reality. It is not in conflict with itself, and your consciousness is designed to experience it directly, not through the filter of crafty word salads prepared by the minions of evil.

I am not against science. I am against the use of science for political gain. When politicians say, “We’re following the science”, they are relying on the likelihood that listeners have bought into the lie that science is always right. Politicians who say that they will always follow the science are lying to you. They will only follow “the science” when it agrees with their agenda. And science is not always right, because the very meaning of science is to probe, hypothesize, test, and falsify or verify. Science is constantly changing as consciousness expands to discover new aspects of reality.

So, what are some of the ways that might be helpful if you want to try to expand your consciousness? Self-inquiry, science, prayer, religious ritual, seeking the fellowship of saints, practicing the presence of God, meditation techniques, mental exercises, psychological analysis, positive thinking, affirmations, mantras, spiritual pilgrimages, Yoga, Buddhism, Christian mysticism, Sufism, fasting, mind-altering substances, reading the Bible, asking what would Jesus do? All of the above, some of the above, none of the above? Actually, the approach that will work best for you depends on where you are in your own personal spiritual journey. Perhaps I need to elaborate on that briefly.


People alive on the planet at this time, tend to gravitate toward one of two states of mind: the giver or the taker. Th taker never has enough, and the giver can never give enough, so both are in a perpetual state of need. But reality is not binary, it is triadic. The third choice is to realize that in reality, we possess nothing, and have no need to give or receive. Possessing nothing, we have everything. Trying to possess something, we have nothing. To be clear, I am not advocating communism, where the state owns everything, or capitalism, where the banks own everything. Whatever the form of government, preferably somewhere between the extremes, the individual should realize that ultimately, no one, and no organization of people can ever possess any part of reality. Even your body is a gift from God, not a possession. It's a gift over which you are given responsibility, not ownership. The third way is the royal way: the way of the observant, benevolent king. And the triadic nature of reality is important to keep in mind for many reasons.

Recall the quote from Nikola Tesla in the last post:

“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6, and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”

The magnificence of the 3, 6, and 9 is displayed in the symmetry and grandeur of the repetitive patterns in the kingdom of creation. But reality can only be understood from the point of view of a conscious observer. Conceptualizations that do not include consciousness in its three forms: primary, secondary, and tertiary, are incomplete and misleading. An overview, from the primary, cosmic, or galactic point of view, is one of a smooth, infinitely continuous progression from the simplicity of the first binary distinction to the infinite complexity of God. That smooth progression is not linear, but increasingly exponential and multi-dimensional as galactic time goes on.

As you zoom in on a segment of the progression, toward the lower end, where we are today as human beings on Planet Earth (Planetary Time 2022 A.D.), the progression begins to look grainy, composed of objects that are composed of elements that are composed of quantized matter, energy, and consciousness. Matter is spatial, energy is temporal, and consciousness is the self-referential aspect of quantized mass, energy, and consciousness. But the essence of reality is infinitely continuous and non-physical. As pointed out in the many previous publications and posts, reality is mostly (about 95.1% at present) non-physical. Recall that 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.

As part of humanity, you and I, dear reader, are part of the science of the future that Tesla refers to. We will become experts in consciousness expansion by trying all of the methods listed in the last paragraph of the previous section of this post over many lifetimes. Experts are not necessarily special or gifted. An expert in a given endeavor is just someone who has made pretty much all of the mistakes that can be made in relation to that endeavor. Here, I would like to paraphrase Nikola Tesla:

The human brain is a receiver. The transmitter is the heart of reality, from which love, knowledge, strength, and inspiration radiate. Everyone should consider his [or her] body a priceless gift from one whom we love above all, a marvelous work of art, of indescribable beauty, and mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate … an antenna capable of tuning in to the thoughts of G0D!

It is incumbent upon each and every human being to do everything within our power to determine exactly where we are, singularly and collectively, on the spiritual journey, and find the perfect method for our individual advancement toward Cosmic Consciousness, as kings and queens in the Kingdom of Heaven.



The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! – Matthew 6:22-23

Your body can be a dark prison of despair, or it can be a temple/laboratory filled with light. Which do you want? It’s your choice. We have to admit, however, that, for most of us, making our eye single and turning our bodies from dark prisons into divine laboratories of light is much easier said than done! In fact, it is so difficult that most people don’t even try; most prefer to relent, rather than repent, sink into habit, and think of the scripture above as only a metaphor, and the forces of evil rejoice.


Flashes of Light

After practicing consciousness-stabilizing meditation techniques for a while, or when in a deep state of relaxation just before going to sleep at night, you may see flashes of light or swirling whiteness behind the darkness of closed eyes. I am not referring to light flashes that may form in the optic nerve or brain from the random activation of light receptors and firing of synapses in the brain that sometimes occurs just after you turn the light out and your physical eyes are trying to see when there is nothing for them to see. I am also not talking about the circular light images caused by the light pressure of your finger tips on your closed eyes in yoga practices like Yoti Mudra, that are designed to create light images to focus your attention.

I am talking about the light that exists beyond such physically generated images, the real light from the threshold and beyond. That light comes into your consciousness through the spiritual eye, the single eye, located slightly above, and in front of the two physical eyes. Our physical eyes are limited to reception of only a very narrow band of electromagnetic radiation, the spiritual eye is not.


Objective Self Inquiry

Many people are drawn to the guided self-inquiry of psychoanalysis, and they generally enjoy it, as long as it is comfortable and reassuring to the ego, but they often recoil and avoid the real, objective Self-inquiry that I am talking about here, because it exposes the ego as a fraud. When the ego begins to dissolve, fear of oblivion comes to its rescue. Believing that attachment to the body is the only reality, the ego sees death of the body as the end of everything and tries to hold on as long as it can.

It is to the ego’s advantage to hide the existence of the threshold from you by promoting the lie that nothing exists but matter and physical force, that physical forms of organic life are the only venues of consciousness, and that death is the scary “undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns”. If you never experience consciousness outside of the body during this life, the lie might as well be true. But escaping the physical and intellectual traps of life on this planet will take considerable effort and then an effortless effort on your part.

Being aware that there is a threshold, upon which moving forward into a more expanded state of consciousness may be possible, is a start. But the negative forces of duality have given your ego a lot of tricks to employ, including the ability to conjure up attractive images and fantasies. So, care must be taken to develop a strict discipline of internal objectivity; otherwise, a lot of precious time and energy can be wasted reacting to imaginary demons and chasing false flags, all designed to distract and hide real spiritual phenomena from you. The key is to cultivate a calm, expectant, but patient awareness. Then, Primary Consciousness, the higher intelligence behind all things, will reveal itself to you when you are ready.

The natural entropy of the physical form and your attachment to it makes it seem that your hair is on fire, and that you must act. “Do something, even if it is wrong!” but that is the illusion of time that comes along with attachment to a physical body. Physical time is quantized, but spiritual time is infinitely deep and continuous. An important part of the spiritual journey lies in developing the patience to be able to surrender to the will of God and allow yourself to become aligned with the natural patterns of reality and the logic of Primary Consciousness. When you are aligned, your consciousness expands, and you begin to see the whole picture, you realize that that everything is exactly as it should be. Then life is no longer the weathering of a storm, you can dance in the rain, see God’s love in a wild flower, and eternity in an hour. Once you are fully awake, you know that your body is a truly a temple of light; you know that the darkness of sleep and death can no longer touch you; you know that you are immortal, and you know that there is nothing, and never was, anything to fear.

The Seen and the Unseen

© Copyright 2022, Edward R. Close, PhD

The theme of this blogsite is displayed every time this site is visited, right above every post. But does every visitor see it, or is it largely seen but unseen? Look up, and you will see it. However, so that I am sure you have seen it, here it is, please read it again:

The integration of natural science and spirituality is accomplished by putting consciousness into the equations of the quantized relativistic model of reality. This approach, with a quantum calculus based on the precise empirical data provided by the Large Hadron Collider, leads to the discovery of gimmel, the non-physical third form that must exist in addition to mass and energy, in order for there to be a stable universe.

My point is that we are programmed by today’s electronic media to look for, to see and hear sight and sound bites consisting of only what “they” want us to see and hear. But in this series of posts, twenty-one of them so far, I am attempting to make a series of points designed to help you become more aware of the whole picture. This is what the expansion of consciousness is all about. As consciousness expands, it becomes clear that reality is much more than the sum of the parts. Arising from the simplicity of drawing the distinction of self from other, the reality we experience quickly becomes very complex, consisting of the subtle integration at the quantum level of both the seen and the unseen.

When we are in a normal state of awareness, our minds are focused on the finite localized objects of daily concern, but when we are transitioning from wakefulness to sleep, we exist on the threshold of expanded consciousness for a quantum portion of a nanosecond, whether we are aware of it or not. It is possible to learn to pause there,… and look at that which is normally unseen.

Last night I went there and this morning I remembered what I saw. It was the content of this post. – There is so much to tell, and so little time to tell it! However, in God’s time, one quantum portion of a nanosecond contains all of eternity, and when across that threshold, in turiyananda, (in the joy of the fourth state of consciousness) I am sure the whole truth shall be told.


The Greater Perspective

In the last post, the major events in the history of the discovery of gimmel, the non-physical part of reality, were outlined, revealing the fact that a major part of reality is unseen because it is not physical. Among the unseen non-physical things, is a lot of evidence of the non-physical essence of your soul that exists even when you are not associated with a physical body, either in an out-of-body experience (OBE), or between lives.

There is now ample evidence that your soul and mine, existed before we were born, and will continue to exist after we die. See the e-book version of the prize-winning essay, We Definitely Live After Death: The Scientific Proof, by Dr. Vernon Neppe,, and The Best Evidence for the Afterlife by Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD I also have a new book on proof of survival with a publisher that should be coming out soon.

The reincarnation of human souls is not a debatable question as far as I am concerned, because I have distinct memories of a number of past lives and of meetings with spiritual advisors between lives. These memories, while fragmentary, are of the same quality as my early memories of events in this life. What some readers might not know is that I am far from being the only one with such memories. The list of famous writers and thinkers who remembered their past lives and/or accepted reincarnation as fact, is lengthy. Many modern Christian church doctrines reject reincarnation even though clear references to the immortality of the soul and reincarnation existed in the earliest scrolls and translations of the Christian scriptures that became the New Testament of the Bible, but were removed from Christian theology in 553 A.D., not by priests or scholars, but by a Roman Emperor for purely political purposes. As a result, Western civilization has nearly lost one of the greatest spiritual truths. 

A recent survey by the Global Research Society and the Institute for Social Research, of more than 18,000 people in 23 countries, reveals that 51% of the people in the world believe in reincarnation. And even though there is far more scientific evidence for reincarnation than for the existence of the Higgs boson, and a majority of the population of the planet accept it as real, Western scientists, because of belief, not science, still largely reject it.

The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said:

“Were an Asiatic to ask me for a definition of Europe, I should be forced to answer him: It is that part of the world which is haunted by the incredible delusion that man is created out of nothing, and that his present birth is his first entrance into life.”

Mark Twain, born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Missouri (1835 -1910) said:

I have been born more times than anybody except Krishna.”

I won’t take the time and space to go into more detail here, but, if you want more detail, please see The Book of Atma, Libra Publishers, New York, and Secrets of the Sacred Cube, A Cosmic Love Story, Part VI through Part X, Outskirts Press. Also, the largest body of well-documented scientific evidence of the reality of reincarnation is found in professional papers and books written by Dr. Ian Stevenson (1918-2007), who was professor of psychology and psychiatry, and a research psychiatrist at the University of Virginia. Dr. Stevenson documented more than 3,000 cases of children around the world who remembered previous lives, many in enough detail that he was able verify the accuracy of their memories. His books for the public, including Children who Remember Previous Lives, are available on Amazon.

As stated in the previous post (Part Twenty) of this series: The group consciousness of sentient beings on this planet will expand into the great understanding of Cosmic Consciousness in the fullness of God’s time, some ten-thousand years in the future. There is nothing the forces of Evil can do to stop it. But, for those on the threshold of true awakening now, that is too long to wait.

Here we see the paradoxical result of being identified with a physical body. You are subject to the frustration of experiencing the relatively rapid entropic decay of the organic compounds that make up the human body, because they are not as stable as the proton. So now, the problem for your soul when associated with a physical body is how to expand your consciousness as much as possible during the short window of opportunity in this lifetime and escape the misery of the glacially slow passage of planetary time. We seem to be swept along with the innate evil of the world, but, fortunately, we have some choices.

In the physical world, the choice always seems to be binary, with the forces of good and evil competing for your energy and commitment. But that is part of the illusion. Whether you fight for good or evil, you are still trapped in duality. In Part Nineteen, discussing the difference between the calculus of dimensional distinctions of TDVP and G. Spencer Brown’s calculus of indications, we saw that excluding consciousness from models of reality makes the logic systems of those models binary. But with the inclusion of consciousness in the quantum calculus of TDVP, its logic becomes triadic. This is a reflection of the fact that the real world is triadic: Everything, including your body, is mass, energy, and consciousness, and you may choose to join the forces of good or evil, or you can choose to transcend. That brings us to the question of how to transcend. What are the ways provided for us to expand our consciousness and transcend pain and suffering by identifying with spiritual reality instead of a physical body? There are many, but they all involve the expansion of consciousness into awareness of the non-physical. Every soul has the potential of doing this and associating with those who have succeeded to some extent, is helpful.

As a practical matter, however, I recommend avoiding institutional organizations as much as you can, because the larger an organization becomes, the more likely it is to be predominately evil. People are quite naturally drawn into groups of ostensibly like-minded people, but then will do things in the name of an organization, especially a political organization, that no one would ever do alone, as a compassionate, intelligent human being. Unfortunately,  both religious and scientific organizations are easily converted into political organizations by Luciferian forces. The slow conversion of organizations from good to evil is one of Satan’s favorite tricks.

World-wide religions are generally based on the teachings of an Avatar of God, who is one with Christ Consciousness, but within a couple of generations after the departure of the Avatar, in order to survive in a changing world, the organization starts modifying the teachings and then slowly degenerates into thinking that their way is the only way, making it all about the Transcendence of God and a few Special Beings, who just happen to be the administrative heads of their organization. Similar to the way religious organizations become the opposite of what they were meant to be, scientific organizations also become political and unscientific very easily.

What I am trying to do in this series of blogposts, is to help further awaken as many readers as I can to the rare possibility of individual consciousness expansion offered, by the grace of God, through the auspices of the few Self-realized beings (Avatars) who have reincarnated from the past and future Sat yugas (times of highest illumination) to help us through these dark times. The evil of this world, Lucifer, if your like, is doing everything in his power to hinder their efforts by using deluded egoist “elites” and politicians (“but”, as Mark Twain said: “I repeat myself!”) to pass out misinformation and lies for truth. This hinderance includes making us believe that spirituality, especially in the form of organized religion, is evil, and that evil, especially in the forms of Marxism and materialistic socialism, are good. This reversal of good and evil has affected the world more dramatically for the past fifty years than ever before, and it has become especially bad during the Covid pandemic.

The infiltration of evil, in the form of various versions of self-destructive Marxist atheism, into the  institutions of mainstream science, education, healthcare, news outlets, popular entertainment, and social media, started in earnest in the 1960s, and was almost complete by 2015. God used people from outside the established elected and non-elected evil elite, like Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and President Donald J. Trump to disrupt and expose the almost totally corrupted world governments, including the US two-party political system. As he has done many times in the past, God used imperfect human beings. Of course, all of us are imperfect, except for God-realized spiritual beings, who are very rare at this point in planetary time.

You may be asking what gimmel and TDVP have to do with this. Recall that Serbian technical genius Nikola Tesla (1856 -1943) famously 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.

That day is here. And the focused use of the scientific methods taught by all God-realized Spiritual Masters can lift human beings from suffering and despair into the ecstasy of expanded consciousness and eventually, Cosmic Consciousness. Was Nikola Tesla a God-realized Soul? Evidence from what we are told about his life do not suggest that, but his intellectual achievements do suggest that he was well ahead of most on the path of positive consciousness expansion. He also said:  


“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6, and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”

The quantum calculus of TDVP has revealed that reality is triadic. There are three forms of the essence of reality, and the number 3 is repeated through the patterns of reality when assessed in quantum equivalence units (TRUE). There are 3 forms of the essence of reality: mass. Energy and consciousness content, 3 dimensions each of 3 types of finite dimensional domains (3x3 = 9) that extend in opposite directions along each of 3 orthogonal dimensions, so, there are 2x3 = 6 cardinal directions. And that’s just the beginning. The magnificence of everything that decorates and illuminates the universe, from the smallest crystal to the largest galaxy, is built on patterns of 3, 6, and 9! Tesla clearly understood a lot beyond the world of his time. About his obvious genius-level intellect he said:


“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration.”

About the human body, he suggested:

“Everyone should consider his [or her] body as a priceless gift from one whom he loves above all, a marvelous work of art, of indescribable beauty, and mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate that a word, a breath, a look, nay, a thought may injure it.”

His is a far better assessment than that of mainstream physicians and scientists who are predominantly materialists. I would add to Tesla’s assessment that the human body is so sensitive that a thought may also heal, strengthen, protect, and even transform it, and for fully enlightened beings, it is a temple filled with light.

‘God doth not need
Either man’s work or his own gifts; who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is Kingly. Thousands at his bidding speed
And post o’er Land and Ocean without rest:
They also serve who only stand and wait.’
- John Milton, “On His Blindness”.


Looking Back

The discovery of the existence of a measurable form of consciousness, now known as gimmel, the third form of physical reality after mass and energy, has a well-documented history. Important parts of that history reach all the way back to the works of the French mathematician Pierre de Fermat with his famous Last Theorem in1637, and the German mathematician Georg Cantor with his Infinity of infinities, around 1900. The discovery of the existence of gimmel about a decade ago, led to the formulation of the Neppe-Close Triadic Dimensional Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) a major paradigm-shifting model. A brief summary of that history is an appropriate background for this post. Here it is, presented in reverse order:

I have posted a link to the most recent presentation of the basic ideas behind TDVP and non-physical gimmel on my FB page. It is an April 2022 YouTube video of a zoom recording of Dr Neppe addressing a group of scientists. Here is the link again: Major parts of the derivation of gimmel have been posted on this blog site. You can search the site from 2019 to the present to find them. Also see

The most recent publication of the complete mathematical proof of the existence of gimmel, the non-physical part of reality, is an important part of my chapter in the book IS CONSCIOUSNESS PRIMARI? – Volume 1 in Advances in Postmaterialist Sciences, edited by Gary E. Schwartz and Marjorie H. Woollacott, 2019. It has also been published, with more detail, in Part II of SECRETS OF THE SACRED CUBE, a Cosmic Love Story, Close, E.R. and J.A., Outskirts Press, 2019, available on Amazon.

Dr. Vernon Neppe, MD, PhD, and I have been working together for about fourteen years now, and we have published scores of peer-reviewed papers, and five editions of Reality Begins with Consciousness, explaining TDVP and the mathematics behind it. The fifth edition of the book is currently available at . Other relevant links can be accessed through .

I published an infinite descent proof of the existence of a non-physical final receptor in the process of human perception in Appendix C of : A CALCULUS OF DISTINCTIONS PROOF of The Existence of Non-Quantum Receptors, in my third book, TRANSCENDENTAL PHYSICS, Paradigm Press, Jackson Missouri, 1997, and I had previously published the basic development of the calculus of distinctions seven years earlier, in my second book, Infinite Continuity, A Theory Unifying Relativity and Quantum Physics, released in 1990.

Prior to that, in 1965, I used the basic reasoning of infinite descent to prove Pierre de Fermat’s Last Theorem (FLT), which became an important part of the logic leading straight through the calculus of distinctions to proof of the existence of gimmel, the non-physical part of electrons and quarks, the building blocks of the atoms of the periodic table.

The 1965 proof of FLT, with documentation of its first submittal to mainstream mathematicians, was published in an appendix of my first published book, The Book of Atma, Libra Publishers, Inc, New York, 1977, and the history of the various reviews and unsuccessful attempts to disprove FLT65 since then is available in the archive s of this blogsite.



In this series of blogposts, I am discussing science and spirituality from the viewpoint of biopsychophysics, a new scientific discipline initiated by TDVP, with its own system of mathematical logic. Major paradigm shifts of the past have always required new mathematics. Relativity, e.g., required the new mathematics of four-dimensional spacetime, and quantum physics required new geometric and probabilistic interpretations of matrix algebra and probabilistic wave equations. TDVP requires the complexity of quantum equivalence units, a quantum calculus, dimensional extrapolation, and a new interpretation of Diophantine equations. It should not be too surprising that a paradigm shift from the simplicity of materialism to the hyper-dimensional complexity of biopsychophysics, encompassing non-physical phenomena, would require some pretty complex new mathematics.

In this series of posts, I will be making some predictions, but I am not claiming to be a seer, prophet, or spiritual guru, inspired by visions from God, I am simply reporting here on some of the more significant findings resulting from applications of the quantum mathematics of the calculus of dimensional distinctions to human experience. My role at this point, and the purpose of these posts is to explain, to the best of my ability, the mathematical logic of TDVP and the proof of the existence of measurable non-physical gimmel and its relationship to the expansion of consciousness in a way that almost anyone can understand.


Looking Forward

In a very important book, The Holy Science, by Paramahansa Yogananda’s Guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, written in India in 1894, copyrighted, and reprinted in the US by Self-Realization Fellowship in 1949, the periodic astronomical movements of the planet Earth are meticulously traced and correlated astrologically with the historical advancement of science and civilization, reflecting the advancement of mental and spiritual virtue from the time we exited the Kali Yuga (the lowest age of conscious virtue) in 1599, and moved into the Dwapara Yuga, an age of expanding consciousness, until the time the book was written in1894, and beyond, all the way to the next high point of consciousness expansion, 10,477 years in the future.

Please don’t be put off by my use of some remnants of Sanskrit terminology from Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. It is the most expressive way of conveying knowledge from the last apex of human enlightenment in 11,501 B.C, and an important part of what I am trying to do is to facilitate the integration of the core truths of all human efforts to understand the nature of reality, both scientific and spiritual. It is only that kind of integration that will counteract Satan’s devious efforts to divide and conquer the spirit of the human soul.

The group consciousness of sentient beings on this planet will expand into the great understanding of Cosmic Consciousness in the fullness of God’s time, some ten-thousand years in the future. There is nothing the forces of Evil can do to stop it. But, for those on the threshold of true awakening now, that is too long to wait. Even though it may be said by a talented poet who was slowly going blind, that “they also serve who only stand and wait”, God’s Love has provided wonderful ways for beleaguered souls, those of us who do not want to stand and wait for ten thousand years, to forge ahead of the pack. Be forewarned, however, that Satan’s minions will spare no effort to block and throw doubt upon those wonderous ways and those who pursue them!

In future blogposts, I hope to be able to focus on some of those wonderous ways that have been provided for us by God’s Avatars (fully enlightened souls), who have gone before. For now, please receive the waves of Love that I am sending from my heart of hearts, embedded in the substrate of Primary Consciousness, to your heart, embedded in the same pervasive extension of the Great I Am. Shalom, Shanti, Peace. Aum, Amin, Amen.
