Manifest in Manifold Quantum Forms

Touchstones of Consciousness Expansion

Revealing the Meaning and Purpose of Life

Wink has not touched my eyes, ever since I saw Thee!

-      Paramahansa Yogananda in Cosmic Chants


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


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


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


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


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


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


Reality: Everything that exists

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Origin of Logic and the Structure of Reality

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


Mass, Energy, Space, Time, and Gimmel

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


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


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


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


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


Gimmel Provides More Answers

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


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


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


The Quantum Calculus

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


Logical Systems and Personal Conceptual Models

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


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


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


The Purpose

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


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


Love is The Ultimate Experience

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

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

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