Today is Sunday. In the quietness of nature where I am today, the church bells of yesteryear are silent. They have been replaced by the sounds of the wind in the trees and the calling of the birds and wild animals that still inhabit these hills. Around the world some people still pause on their traditional Sabbath, a day of rest, ranging from Thursday, to Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, depending upon the religious cultures of their ancestors. There is no question that most of the people of this world sorely need a day of rest today. We tire of the incessant stream of lies and propaganda from mainstream media that negatively impact our hearts, minds, and souls today. Hopefully, an increasing number are turning off the TV and thinking once again of God, whatever their personal conceptualization of the Creative Intelligence that underlies reality may be. As the winds of war replace the music of church bells yet again in many places around the world, let’s contemplate the reality of our morbidity and the purpose and meaning of life. Have we learned anything from the many mistakes of mis-guided humanity the past?

I have taken the long view in most of my blogposts of the past couple of years, trying to give hope to those suffering today, by pointing out that things are gradually improving. But this long view, because it covers a period of about 100 times the average lifespan of most of you who might read these posts, sounds like wishful philosophical posturing when juxtaposed against the realities of today. So, let’s talk about the ugly realities of the recent past and the concerns of today.

About four years ago, I think because the work that Dr. Neppe and I had been advancing and publishing in the field of mind-matter interaction had begun to attract attention worldwide, and because I had been a systems analyst in an elite group within the US Government, I was approached by representatives of the “Global Elite” with a proposition that they believed I could not possibly refuse to accept. I was told that, if I joined their ranks, they would see to it that my wife, Jacquelyn Ann Hill-Close, who was in the final stages of kidney failure after six years of dialysis, would have the most advanced treatment possible, and that I would have unlimited funding for my research. All I had to do, was swear allegiance, by blood oath, to their cause, and agree to “follow orders without question, when the time came.”

Those of you who follow my Transcendental Physics blogposts probably know, or at least suspect, that I do not write with a prior plan or project in mind, regarding the content of my posts; I write by inspiration. When I began to write the paragraph above, I stopped, because I know what the people behind the great hoax that has been forced upon the people of this world for the past sixty years are capable of. I turned to my inner connection with my spiritual guides and asked if I should post this. I got an immediate response that told me yes, I should post it. It is time right now to merge intellectual understanding with practical application, and this is part of that effort.

The promise of saving my loving partner, my helpmate of more than forty years, plus unlimited research funding was very tempting. In fact, I decided to accept their offer and go ahead with the ritual of initiation they required. Fortunately, I came to my senses before the deed was done. When I paused during the ritual to meditate, I realized that this would undermine the mission I had been given by my spiritual mentors. Still, I could not imagine life without her. Before the last step of my initiation into the organization, I visited Jacqui in the hospital and told her that I had been offered an opportunity to save her life. She had just come out of one of her near-death experiences that she wrote about in what became part of the manuscript of Secrets of the Sacred Cube, a Cosmic Love Story, published in 2019 (See pages 300 – 358). She said: “Honey, I’ve been told these are my last days on Earth! And they said that you still have a lot of work to do. I love you so much! Please don’t sell your soul to the devil trying to save me!”

I will stop here and reflect on how blessed I was; and continue to be. Thank you for listening.

In more than 570 Transcendental Physics blogposts, and especially in the last three or four of them, I have endeavored to establish a solid logical basis for developing an effective way to locate and consciously strengthen the connection with Spirit that exists within each living individual conscious physical being at the quantum level. The evidence that this quantum connection actually exists was discovered by applying the calculus of dimensional distinctions (CoDD) triadic rotational unit of equivalence (TRUE) analysis to investigate the dynamic combination of the elementary spinning objects that make up physical reality. Those elementary objects, known as quarks, unite in unique groups of three to form the most basic stable objects in physical existence, called protons; and the proton, combined with the smallest, most elementary object, the electron, forms the protium hydrogen atom, the most abundant and stable natural element in the physical universe and in the physical bodies of evolving conscious beings.

Note that the acronym ‘TRUE’ can stand for either the singular or plural of the basic unit of the CoDD, depending on the context of the sentence in which it is used. The TRUE quantization of physical reality was achieved in TDVP by using the mass and volume of the smallest stable physical object, the free electron, to define the most basic unit of measurement. By doing so, we found that the most abundant atom in the physical universe, the stable hydrogen atom, consists of exactly (11x22x33)= (108)3 = 1,259,712 Triadic TRUE, of which almost 95% are units of the non-physical component we call gimmel.

I have calculated the volume of the free electron in SI units and published it in the mathematical derivation of gimmel. But it is worth noting that all that was necessary to establish and develop the Calculus was to confirm that the free electron has a finite volume. Gimmel is the measurable non-physical third form of quantum reality, after matter and energy, that is necessary to form stable combinations of elementary objects, and that serves as the connection between mind and matter, between physical and Spiritual reality. Note also, that the percentage of gimmel in elemental atoms is the same as the percentage of “dark matter” and “dark energy” in the universe.

Further TRUE analysis has revealed that “dark matter” and “dark energy” are complete misnomers. They are neither dark, nor matter or energy. They are gimmel, which is the non-physical part of reality, consisting of spiritual light, which is not detectable to our physical sense organs. Whether you have experienced the presence of non-physical Spiritual light and reality in your life, or not, understanding that this connection actually exists will enable you to think about it in concrete terms and be able to find a way to develop a sharper awareness of it. The purpose of this post is to try to make awareness of this connection available to as many conscious beings as may want to know about it. An understanding of the theoretical basis of TDVP and the results of the analyses based on mathematical logic and statistics, backed up by a growing volume of experimental data, will help you to become more aware of the connection with Spirit that exists in your own consciousness.  

It is important to understand that negative attitudes, ego-centered emotions, mis-guided hateful reactions, and unwarranted aggression against others, over the period of low spiritual virtue we’ve been in for the past several thousand years, have weakened and even blocked our awareness of the connection of each soul with Primary Consciousness. To re-establish the awareness of that connection, or to enhance an existing awareness of it, it is necessary to still the mind and open the heart to receive God’s Holy Spirit.

Sometimes awareness of Spirit happens spontaneously, e.g., when listening to uplifting music, observing a beautiful sunset, meeting a saintly person, or falling in love with any divine aspect of reality, a special person, place, or thing that is imbued with God’s presence. The glory of God's reality is conveyed into your physical brain, and on to your heart and soul through the activation of gimmel, whether you are aware of it or not. It is only through increased spiritual awareness that you may hope to accelerate your progress toward Cosmic Consciousness during this lifetime despite the darkness of the current materialistic age.

As a conscious being, you have a certain measure of free will, depending on your level of spiritual advancement, that allows you to accept or reject the connection with Spirit. The connection is always available, but it is up to you to accept or reject it. This is the most important and crucial decision you can make in this physical lifetime. Rejection results in the death and destruction of the persona you have developed during this life, and the return of the innate unconscious positive energy of your being to the Source. Acceptance results in continued strengthening of the connection and the opportunity to expand your consciousness beyond your physical existence and evolve spiritually to the point where you will no longer need to experience death and destruction.

As spiritual human beings living on planet Earth at this time, we must make every effort to maintain and increase our awareness of this deep connection, because of the incessant evil of daily distractions of personal, local, and world events, and negative reactions that can reduce our awareness. This is why there are numerous scriptural admonitions to “pray without ceasing.” A prayerful attitude also includes gratitude. Anytime you feel the ecstasy of Spirit rising in your heart, whatever the cause, be thankful for it and let it fill your consciousness completely, for as long as you can, because that feeling is the Holy Spirit, the token of God’s presence, conveyed into your consciousness through the gimmel existing in every atom of your being, and which, with focused effort, will cause the Eternal Light to blossom forth and flood your soul with miraculous energy.

This ecstatic inner energy that you feel in the center of your being is real, and it is miraculous because it can manifest as a powerful healing light in every cell of your body, and you can share it with other souls. Sharing it with others is like using a candle to light other candles: When you touch another heart with love and compassion, your experience of the Light will not dimmish, but will burn even brighter in your heart and eventually in the entire world. It is inexhaustible because it comes from the one and only Infinite Source.

Based on the mathematical and scientific understanding of the existence of gimmel, the quantum connection between our individualized consciousness and Primary Consciousness, provided by the triadic Dimensional Vortical paradigm (TDVP) TRUE analysis, we can see the importance of strengthening this connection. By focusing on the spiritual connection that exists at the deepest level of our physical being with an ever-increasing effort to connect personally with Spirit and receive God’s Infinite Love and Light in our hearts, we may learn how to share it with others, passing it on, one soul at a time. In this way we can help spread the healing light of Spirit around the world.

A timely return to the realization that the positive aspects of the life we are blessed to enjoy come from the one and only infinitely intelligent and loving Source, the eternally present and omnipotent Primary Consciousness, is the only way we can hope to heal the divisive disease caused by the rejection of the reality of God by millions of the inhabitants of this planet. The evil threatening to separate the people of this world from our Divine Source forever through the forced installation of various forms of mis-guided tyrannical governments that are based on the dialectic materialist rejection of the existence of the infinite non-physical energy of God underlying the physical universe, will ultimately fail, as people awaken to its false narrative and the reality of Spirit.

It is my intention to devote future presentations to discussions of effective methods of spiritual consciousness expansion supported by mathematical logic and empirical science, and to answer sincere questions as they may arise.

Because the senses of the physical bodies we inhabit on this planet are limited to perceiving only very small fractions of the vast ranges of space, time, mass, energy, and consciousness that actually exist, we are normally unaware of the overwhelming majority of reality because it exists beyond the limited focus of the physical senses developed for the purpose of physical survival on this planet. It is necessary for evolving consciousness to gradually increase awareness over many lifetimes of sentient beings in order for individuals to be able to learn to expand their individualized consciousness toward the eventual grand goal of Cosmic Consciousness.

The limited finite awareness of conscious beings exists roughly in the middle of the range of density and intensity of mass, energy, and gimmel that make up reality, which exists from the finite quantal level to the cosmological whole, expanding toward infinity. The quantum level is more accessible to us, for one simple reason: As quantized consciousness expands in all directions, there is a ‘bottom’ to reality at the quantum level, while expansion in the opposite direction goes on toward infinity forever. The primary building blocks of reality exist at the quantum level and it is for this reason that derivation of a  functional quantum calculus is so important for the continuation of the development of science.

It is clear that Max Planck understood the need for a quantized mathematical approach to the task of understanding reality. He developed a quantized system of measurement, that is now known as Planck units, in an effort to accomplish that. It didn’t evolve into a complete quantum calculus for a number of reasons, but it was a definite move in the right direction. He wrote:


“... die Möglichkeit gegeben ist, Einheiten für Länge, Masse, Zeit und Temperatur aufzustellen, welche, unabhängig von speciellen Körpern oder Substanzen, ihre Bedeutung für alle Zeiten und für alle, auch außerirdische und außermenschliche Culturen notwendig behalten, und welche daher als »natürliche Maßeinheiten« bezeichnet werden können.”

Translation: “… the possibility exists to set up units for length, mass, time, and temperature, independent of special bodies or substances, keeping their meaning as necessary, for all times and for everyone, including even extraterrestrial and non-human cultures, and which therefore can become known as ‘natural units of measurement’."


Planck tried to create a natural system of units by setting the four universal constants: the speed of light, the gravitational constant, the quantum of action, now known as Planck’s constant, and Boltzmann’s constant, equal to one. The problem was that no quantum calculus consistent with the unitary quantum equivalence he had defined was established. Among the constants he used to establish quantum equivalence, only the speed of light was based on the basic elementary units of length (space) and time. The other constants involve compound non-quantum variables. The result was the production of quantum fractions that have no counterpart in stable physical reality.

Max Planck, much like his friend Albert Einstein, was a physicist first, and a mathematician only as needed to support his work in physics. He may have realized that establishing a consistent quantum calculus would require a complete redefinition of the fundamental operations of arithmetic, algebra, and the calculus of differentiation and integration, a truly daunting task for anyone to undertake!. Also, he may have been aware that there are no known general methods for solving the Diophantine equations that result from describing quantum reality in a mathematically consistent manner. The CoDD, is a quantum calculus developed from 1986 until 2015, with the help of Russian Mathematician Vladimir N. Brandon from 1997 until 2003, and the brilliant polymath, Dr. Vernon M. Neppe, from 2008 until 2015. The CoDD with truly natural units, fills the basic need for a quantum calculus appropriate to investigate the quantum reality underlying the world we experience.

The results of the application of the CoDD with 3-D quantum equivalence units to the mathematical expression for constant light speed, as discussed in the last post, reverses the illusion, caused by the limitations of our physical senses, that space/time and mass/energy are fixed. But, in a universe with no fixed universally prefered reference frame, wherein each measurement interacts with every other measurable variable at some level, focusing on one part of reality to understand it completely is like playing a game of “whack-a-mole”, or pulling on a thread in an endless mosaic: The act of measurement in one spot evokes an equal and opposite reaction somewhere else. The ultimate resolution of this dilemma is for the observer to become one with the whole of reality. That state of consciousness is what I have chosen to call Cosmic Consciousness.

However, while reality cannot be encompassed by expansion into the cosmos unless we achieve the ultimate goal of Cosmic Consciousness, because there is a “bottom” to reality at the quantum level, the subtle essence of reality can be cornered there, so to speak, at least momentarily, by gradually expanding individualized consciousness to include awareness of the building blocks of reality. This can be done consciously by developing the siddhis discussed in earlier posts, or it can be done mathematically by applying the quantum calculus (CoDD) to analyze the combination of two up quarks and one down quark to form the most stable object in all of physical reality, the proton. This application of TRUE analysis, done nearly a decade ago, resulted in the discovery of the existence of gimmel, the all-important non-physical component of the proton.

The physics and mathematics proving the existence of gimmel have been peer-reviewed and published in several places and referenced multiple times in previous posts. For the complete proof see: Close, ER & JA: Secrets of the Sacred Cube, A Cosmic Love Story, Outskirts Press, 2019, ISBN 978-1-9772-1024-1, pages 35 – 62; Neppe VM, Close ER: Reality begins with consciousness: a paradigm shift that works (5th Edition) Fifth Edition. Seattle WA,, 2014; and my chapter in the AAPS Volume I, first edition entitled Is Consciousness Primary? Edited by Drs G.E. Schwartz and M.H. Woollacott (2019).

In my opinion, once the basic laws governing the physics of rotating objects spinning at near light speed are understood, the mathematics proving the existence of gimmel, the non-physical component of the proton, are not beyond that which a bright student of algebra at the high school or first-year college level can easily understand. However, I have promised to avoid mathematical notation and jargon as much as I possibly can in these posts, so I will do my best now to explain the analysis that resulted in the proof of the existence of the measurable non-physical component of reality in terms that I believe anyone can understand.

Eleven members of the family of 12 elementary objects known as quarks are all very unstable when not locked into combinations to form the hadron building blocks of physical reality and the elements of the periodic table. But when two of the smallest quarks, the most stable of the family, called up quarks, and one of the next larger quarks, the down quark, combine, they form the most stable known object in the universe, the proton. Application of the quantum calculus I call the Calculus of Dimensional distinctions (CoDD), with Triadic Rotational Units of Equivalence (TRUE) analysis, to this combination reveals that the proton cannot possibly be stable without the existence of specific numbers of additional Triadic Rotational Units of Equivalence (TRUE) of something that cannot be either mass or energy.

The CoDD TRUE analysis provides the mathematical and physical explanation of the fact that stable subatomic objects and consequently the elements of the periodic table are formed exclusively by the combination of three elementary objects, not two, four, or any other number. Because the TRUE are defined by the mass and volume of the smallest stable elementary object, the free electron, the redefinition of the fundamental operation of addition in the new quantum calculus, is mathematically analogous to the combination of quarks forming the proton. This leads to a variety of clearer and mathematically simpler explanations of the quantum processes that form all of the stable structures of the physical universe.

Learning about reality is its own reward because knowledge is power, and knowledge of the structure, meaning, and purpose of reality leads to ultimate power over the negative forces of our dualistic existence on this planet. The pathway to this knowledge may be difficult, but, as Jesus said to his disciples:

The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”

In future posts I plan to discuss how explanations derived from applications of the quantum calculus and spiritual siddhis lead to a deeper understanding of quantum reality that will allow us to learn how to consciously impact reality at the quantum level through positive intent, in ways that will be beneficial to all.

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

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

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

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

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

Light, Consciousness, and Reality

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reality Awaits Discovery

© Copyright 2022, Ed Close

Dreaming the Unreal

As mentioned in the last post, the idea that there might be a way for conscious beings to “re-imagine” and change reality in whatever way we might want to, has become increasingly popular, and the history of science and technology attests to the fact that we do actually affect real changes in processes that start with imagination because some things that surfaced in human imagination as science fiction 50 to 100 years ago, have actually manifested and radically changed our lives. Not only that, certain advanced experimental and theoretical developments suggest that some aspect of consciousness may interact directly with physical reality in some way, at the quantum level.

It is obvious that conscious beings interact with reality all the time at the macro level, in ways that effectively change some of the natural features of reality for specific purposes through the organization and preparation of materials, followed by appropriate construction activities. Examples include everything from insect and animal nests to skyscrapers, computers, and rocket launchers. But the dream is that we may be able to affect reality in a more direct way by making changes at the quantum level. But before we can do that consciously and safely, with any hope of producing positive results, we need to have a far better understanding of exactly how consciousness relates to physical reality at the quantum level.

A very formidable barrier we have to overcome before we can think about how to affect changes at the quantum level without wreaking havoc, is the huge difference in size between what we perceive with our physical senses and the scale of elementary quantum objects. Prof. Jon Butterworth’s attempt to help us grasp the true magnitude of this unimaginable size difference was quoted in the New Approach Part 24 blog, under the heading Taking a Deeper Look, posted on May 1, 2022. Underlining his point, I’d just like to say that the difference is far greater than the difference between the size of a grain of sand and the size of the Earth or sun; it’s more like the difference between a grain of sand and the size of the milky Way, or the volume of the largest spiral galaxy in the physical universe.

This relative size barrier, while ostensibly overwhelming, is not insurmountable because of an innate skill that will eventually be available to us all. It’s a yogic siddhi (a spiritual sense perception in this case) enabling a conscious being to magnify anything to a size that is as large as is needed. In a couple of books and previous posts I have described how I first experienced this innate ability spontaneously while sitting in a classroom when I was eleven years old.

For the purposes of this discussion, I’m asking you to imagine, or to suspend your belief system momentarily if you can’t imagine it and accept that I am describing a real experience. In the study mentioned earlier, in which we determined the correlation between the Annie Bessant meditation viewing of atomic structure and results of TRUE analysis of atomic structure using the TDVP CoDD, we see experimental and mathematical evidence of the existence of the siddhi that allows us to magnify quantum details. This is essentially what I did to develop the CoDD, and that resulted in the discovery of gimmel, the non-physical organizing feature of reality.

Developing a quantum calculus (the CoDD) based on a quantum unit (the TRUE), defined as the mass and volume of the smallest elementary object, the electron, and applying it to analyze the most stable quantum-level process, the  combination of two up-quarks and one down-quark to form the proton, also revealed concepts in the current Standard Model that have no existence in reality. The most obvious are dimensionless and massless particles, one-dimensional objects, and two-dimensional objects. No such things exist in reality. They are purely conceptual. How do we know this?

Zero-, one-, and two– dimensional domains do not exist in a quantized reality because, as Einstein pointed out, space has no existence of its own, and Zero-, one-, and two– dimensional domains have no capacity to contain anything, not even one quantum of mass or energy. From a purely logical point of view, a mathematical singularity, a line, or an area, have no content, no mass, and no energy. They only exist as mental concepts. No real object can have less than one TRUE of mass, energy, or consciousness content. The inclusion of mathematic singularities, lines, and areas with no depth in reality models leads to contradiction, confusion, and logical paradox.

Paradox and Dimensional Patterns

Paradox, like pain and suffering, is God’s gift to those who take thinking about human existence seriously. Without paradox, there is no real progress: No real progress in Love, science, artistic creativity, intellectual understanding, or spiritual evolution. Real paradox means contradiction, conflict, and confusion – but also, most importantly, paradox presents profound opportunities for consciousness expansion and spiritual growth. Therefore, paradox should be welcomed as an invitation into a more comprehensive reality with opportunities for scientific and spiritual progress.

Paradoxes revealed when conventional mathematical descriptions of physical combinations are translated into the quantum calculus of the CoDD lead to the discovery of higher dimensionality and revelation of many more meaningful patterns of reality. The simplest example is the “imaginary” number of conventional mathematical calculation. The square-root of negative one is a paradox in 3-D space, but in 4-D spacetime, it is not paradoxical. In fact, the square root of negative one is the proper value of the unitary projection from the 3-D domain into the 4-D domain. An important invariant feature of hyper-dimensional domains is the transmutation of the basic unit of measurement into a more complex root of unity after each triad of dimensions. This becomes obvious in applications of the primary quantum calculus (CoDD), while it remains hidden in conventional mathematics because the units of observation and measurement are not related directly to quantum reality.

With the basic unit of measurement, the TRUE, defined by the mass and volume of the electron, patterns reflecting the physical features of quantum reality appear in the integer multiples and Diophantine equations of the CoDD model that are hidden in the conventional physical and mathematical analyses of the Standard Model by inappropriate applications of the infinitesimal calculus of Newton and Leibniz and by idealized concepts like dimensionless particles, and one- and two-dimensional structures that do not actually exist in quantized physical reality. Here are some examples of patterns revealed by the CoDD, with measurements in triadic rotational units of equivalence (TRUE):

The electron: 12 = 13, a perfectly symmetrical 3-D rotating stable object.

The up quark: 22 = 4, consisting of 4 three-dimensional unitary objects rotating around each other is not a perfectly symmetrical 3-D object, but the up quark is the simplest and most stable quark, and it is symmetric in three planes, making it almost as stable as the proton.

The down quark: 32 = 9, consisting of 9 three-dimensional objects rotating in one plane; not a perfectly symmetrical 3-D object, it decays in a little under 15 minutes when not in combination with up quarks to form a proton.

The proton: (2x3x4)3 = (24)3 =1728, a perfectly symmetrical 3-D rotating object.

The Hydrogen Atom:  (11x22x33)3 = 13x26x39 = (108)3 = 1,259,712, two symmetrical objects, an electron, and a proton, rotating around each other in three dimensions.

People known as numerologists have been fascinated with numerical patterns in mathematics for centuries, but most of the patterns they note are not directly related to the structure of reality because the conventional units of measurement are not quantum units. They are related to the fundamental operations of mathematics and the use of the number base 10. Change the number base or the operational rules of calculation, and most of the patterns noticed in conventional math by numerologists disappear or change.

The important point here is not just that there are interesting numerical patterns in CoDD quantitative descriptions of elementary objects, but that these patterns tell us something about the actual dimensional structure of the quantized elementary objects that make up physical reality, and how they combine to form more complex objects. The numerical patterns in the quantum units (TRUE) describing the three elementary objects (the electron, up quark, and down quark) and two combinations (the proton and the hydrogen atom) described above, tell us the following:

1)   The primary features that make quantum physical objects stable are simplicity, symmetry, and spin, creating maximum angular momentum.

2)   The total number of TRUE is equal to a cube in the most stable objects, the electron, and the proton, indicating perfect dimensional symmetry.

3)   Objects with total TRUE equal to a square (like down quarks) are symmetric in one plane only, with limited stability when they are not in combination with other partially symmetric objects.

4)   Elementary objects do not combine like macro-objects, they merge in a manner similar to volumes of fluid at the quantum level.

In future posts I will describe the nature of quantum reality revealed by TRUE analysis in more detail and explain how this knowledge will help us to  be able to affect positive changes in reality at the quantum level.

Hello! My name is Ed Close. Who are you, dear reader? Maybe someone who has read some of my posts before. If not, then not only is this an introduction to what I am going to talk about in “Patterns of Reality”, it’s an introduction to me as a person, as well. As of this moment, I have placed 571 posts on this blogsite. One might think that is more than enough. The last one was number 24 in a series that explains pretty much who I am and what I’ve been up to for the past few hundred years. I also have several books in print and a number of papers and articles. You can read or re-read them if you have time and want to.

Notice that the by-line on this post is just my name. I’ve dropped the PhD, PE, DSPE, Charter Member…Distinguished Member…etc., etc. some of which I could legitimately still attach to my name; but I’ve done that for a reason: I am retired. I am not PhD-ing, PE-ing, or DSPE-ing, … any more. I’m just Ed Close, and that’s enough. I am still writing though, that’s part of who I am. You can still call me Dr. as a title of respect, if you’d like, or just call me Ed Close, or “that guy who writes all sorts of crazy stuff”. I don’t care. I don’t need any more accolades or praise. When I skip on the next life, I am hoping that I will have made some difference in the world for the good of myself and my fellow human beings who have to go on with this drama; but that’s not up to me.

I don’t mean to suggest that I am going to walk off into the sunset anytime soon. Not at all! I woke up this morning knowing that I still have a lot of work to do. The patterns of thought and structures of gimmel-guided electrons, quarks, atoms, compounds, cells, organs, and symbiotic organisms that make up my physical body are still very much active in the game of life, and this life is not over until the real “Big Guy”, the one who spoke the reality we all experience into existence, says it is. So there! Enough said about me.

In the pursuit of identifying the Patterns of Reality that can change lives for the better, I intend to draw on things I’ve learned during the 85 years of this life, and beyond. One thing I’ve learned, is that the experiences of life, even those that seem chaotic and uncertain – like a stumbling trial and error path through a frightening minefield of death and destruction - are actually governed by hidden patterns designed to further consciousness expansion and spiritual evolution. I tried very hard to boil a lot of the apparent randomness down in previous blogposts. The patterns I want to identify now, through a further distillation of life and death experiences, are the guiding patterns of reality that can be recognized by separating the patterns that are real and profound from the trivial and often illusory concepts that are not real.

Patterns Real and Imagined

The idea is surfacing more persistently as time goes on, that anything we can imagine can be manifested, and the history of the progress of science and technology over the past 200 years – a sizable part of which I have experienced myself – seems to bear this out. When I first started getting interested in science and mathematics in this life, a few years before the end of World War II, - “the war to end all wars” according to the hopeful US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt - television was a new invention and cars were replacing horses, even in the Ozarks. People began to imagine all sorts of fantastic things for the future, and some of it has come true.

If we can affect the patterns of reality by what we imagine, we must be very careful what we wish for. Reality is not as simple as it looks on the surface. It exists in more than two dimensions, and until our consciousness is expanded beyond the duality of simplistic two-dimensional thinking, trying to motivate reality to manifest what we wish for can be dangerous. In the part of reality that we perceive through the physical senses, i.e., the contents of three-dimensional space and one unidirectional dimension of time, the asymmetric 4-D pattern guarantees that what is manifested will rarely, if ever, be what the dreamer dreams of, and it may even be the opposite of what was intended, especially if the dream is absolute or profound. The concepts of true and false, and simple versus profound, are distorted by an incomplete understanding of the nature of reality.  

Niels Bohr, the Danish physicist who explained the layered structure of the atom and was instrumental in the development of quantum physics, put it this way:

The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.

The first sentence of this statement is an obvious example of binary logic based on the assumption that a meaningful statement is correct if it corresponds with reality, and false if it does not. The second sentence raises some important questions: Are there distinctly different levels of truth? What is a profound truth? Is a profound truth absolute, a priori, self-evident, i.e., needing no proof? If so, the assumptions upon which systems of logic, including philosophical, political, and scientific theories are based may be profound truths. If they are not, the theories are flawed or at least incomplete. The existence of profound truths implies the existence of other, not-so-profound truths. What is the difference between a profound truth and a simple truth?

Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell, in their three-volume work Principia Mathematica, elucidating the foundations of mathematical logic, identified three types of statements: true, false, and meaningless. But in the development of the quantum calculus of dimensional distinctions (CoDD), we find that some statements that are meaningless in a binary system of logic are actually meaningful in a higher-dimensional triadic model of reality. This is consistent with G. Spencer Brown’s findings in Laws of Form. A truth that does not qualify as profound, is either simple or an indicator of the existence of a higher dimensional domain with more than 3 or 4 dimensions. How can we tell what kind of truth a given true statement is? Let’s look at some examples.

True or False

Let’s start with the statement: “All crows are black.” I think that this statement, if true, is a simple truth, the opposite of which is false. I grew up in the country where I saw a lot of crows. All of them were black. I have also seen crows in other parts of the world, and all of them were black. So, this statement may well be true, but I can’t prove it because I have not seen every crow that exists. But suppose it really is true. Suppose that at this instant, every crow that exists is black. That truth could change at any time. Some demented person might spray-paint a crow orange, or through mutation, a crow might hatch that is white or brown. Conclusion: The statement “All crows are black” may be true at one time and false at another time. A truth that can change to false over time cannot be classified as profound, and so must be classified as simple and provisional, as opposed to complex and profound.

One man, perhaps one of the smartest men who ever lived, Rene Descartes, famously said: “I think, therefore, I am.” That sounds pretty profound. But is it? If the statement can be verified as true and can be generalized to apply to all of thinking beings, - and if its opposite may be a profound truth too, then it will surely qualify as a profound truth. The first step is to determine whether or not it is true. The “I think” and the “I am” parts of the statement can be verified and accepted as true because there is no doubt that Descartes existed, and the fact that he did a lot of thinking is quite well documented. If the “therefore” part is also true, then the statement can be generalized to apply to all thinking beings simply by removing the personal pronouns and replacing the “therefore” with “implies’, so that the statement becomes: “Thinking implies existence”.

In this context, opposite means in opposition to, or in contradiction of the original statement. In this case, for Descartes’ statement, there are four possible statements in opposition to “I think, therefore I am” and its generalization, “Thinking implies existence”: there is one converse statement and three negating statements. To be thorough, we must look at each of them. The converse statement is “existence implies thinking”. This opposite statement certainly isn’t a profound truth because it isn’t even true. E.g., the rock I was holding in my hand in the picture above exists, but most people would agree that it doesn’t think. It holds a lot of information about the Earth’s crust in a certain location and time period, but it doesn’t think.

The negative opposites of Descartes’ statement are: The nominative negation: “Not thinking implies existence”, the objective negation: “Thinking implies non-existence”, and the complete negation: “Not thinking implies non-existence”. Considering each opposing statement separately, I think we can agree that none of them are profound, or even true. Therefore, Descartes’ statement “I think therefore I am” may be true, and it is certainly more complex than the statement about black crows, but is it also provisional like the black crows statement? The answer to that depends on the definitions of thinking and being, and the process that might make the conjunctive adverbs “therefore” or “implies” true. So, we must look deeper into what is meant by “thinking” and “being”, and whether or not they are causally connected.

Thinking is a mental activity associated with electrical and chemical processes in complex physical structures known as brains. Thinking should not be confused with computing, which can be done automatically by a properly programmed machine. And being is a synonym for existing, implying the status of being an existing part of reality. The discovery of the existence of gimmel, a stabilizing non-physical feature of reality, means that Descartes’ statement is true, if, and only if, the process represented by the word “therefore” or “implies” in the general case, is also supported by the presence of gimmel. Since any mechanism that could link thinking to being depends on the stability of electrons, and protons, which contain specific numbers of units of gimmel, Descartes’ statement is verified as a truth that is more complex than a simple truth, but not a truly profound truth.

In Search of Profound Truth

So far, we have only found examples of a simple truth and a complex truth. To be honest, I didn’t really expect “All crows are black” to be a profound truth, but I had greater expectations for “I think, therefore I am”. However, just like in the case of the crows, Descartes’ clever declaration turns out to be true and complex, but not profound. Do profound truths exist, as Bohr suggests, or are all a priori assumptions provisional because of the asymmetrical nature of time? If so, this could be the hidden basis of Gödel’s incompleteness theorems and there may not be such a thing as profound truth. But I don’t think so, and it is worth taking a moment to explain why I am convinced that profound truths do exist.

When symmetric dimensions of time and consciousness were added to the four-dimensional (4S-1t) model of the Standard Model of particle physics to produce the TDVP system of mathematical logic, we were able to derive a calculus that explained a substantial number of things that were paradoxical and contradictory in conventional Standard Model analyses. These included explaining why only triadic combinations of elementary particles produce stable subatomic structures, deriving the Cabibbo quark mixing angle from theory, explaining the additional mass of protons and neutrons formed from up- and down-quarks, and many more. Following the time-honored axioms of “the proof is in the pudding”, and the simplest possible answer is usually the correct one (the law of parsimony), I conclude that profound truth does exits.

To determine whether I am right, I need to find an example of a profound truth. Where can we find such a treasure? As indicated above, profound truths might be found hidden in plain sight among the a priori assumptions supporting successful theories like relativity and quantum physics; so, let’s look there. One unifying statement that stands out because it connects the two theoretical pillars of modern physics is Einstein’s statement: “the speed of light is constant”. This statement and the complementary declaration of “no preferred reference frame” is the basis of the special and general theories of relativity. The same statement, paired with Planck’s discovery that energy and mass are quantized also underlies quantum mechanics and quantum physics. So perhaps the constancy of the speed of light is a profound truth.

Surely, Einstein’s constant light speed is a more profound statement than Descartes’ thinking implies being, - or is it? First, we need to understand exactly what Einstein meant when he declared “the speed of light is constant”. Is the speed of light the same in every circumstance? No. Light travels through space and transparent and translucent things at different rates. The speed of light in water, for example, is about 25% slower than the speed of light in the near vacuum of space. This appears to be a case where the opposite is also true, conforming with Bohr’s remark that the opposite of a profound truth may also be a profound truth! The speed of light is constant for every observer, but the speed of light is not constant in every circumstance. But, if the speed of light varies depending on physical circumstances, isn’t that a provisional truth? And what about time? Might not the speed of light actually change over time? If so, can constant light speed really be a profound truth?

Obviously, Einstein was not saying that the speed of light is the same under all circumstances, but then, what was he saying? He was saying something more amazing and consequential – and more profound. He was saying that the speed of light is always the same for all observers, regardless of the motion of the source and receiver. For example, if astronaut scientists in two different rocket ships flying through space at the same time are measuring the speed of light coming from a light source into their ships and one of the ships is moving toward the light source at a high rate of speed, while the other is moving at a high rate of speed away from the source, they will both measure the speed of the sunlight they receive to be exactly the same! Contrary to the expectations of classical mainstream physicists of the 1800s and early 1900s, experimental evidence verified Einstein’s declaration that this is true.

If this concept of constant light speed doesn’t seem strange to you, then think about what it would be like if, instead of light, the scientists were measuring the velocities of moving physical objects like bullets or other projectiles. The scientist moving away from the place of the object’s origin would find a much slower object velocity than the one moving toward it. The actual velocity of each object could be determined by the addition or subtraction of velocity vectors. Not so with light. Why? If light is a purely physical phenomenon, then, whether scientists are measuring the speed of arrival of a photon or a wave front, why wouldn’t the law of addition of velocity vectors hold? The fact that it doesn’t, and all observers detect the same light speed despite relative motion of sources and observers, points to profound truths about the nature of space, time, and the propagation of light. It turns out that space and time have no objective existence of their own, and light is evidence of a primary universal constant.

The quantum equivalence unit, or Triadic Rotational Unit of equivalence (TRUE) used as the basic unit of measurement, is defined by setting the mass and volume of the free electron, the smallest stable elementary object, equal to one; and the quantum calculus mentioned so often in previous posts and publications, the Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions (CoDD), is derived by setting the speed of light equal to one. The result is a normalized whole-number system of multi-dimensional mathematical logic that serves as the descriptive quantified language for the Triadic Dimensional Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) model of reality.

Application of this normalized TRUE system of mathematical logic to analyze the simplest combination of elementary objects, i.e., the combination of quarks to form a proton, has revealed some interesting serial numerical patterns that may have significance for future research. The next post will explore some of those patterns.
