From inert particle physics to a conscious universe How the equations of elementary particle physics gave clues to higher dimensions and consciousness. • I was on leave in The Netherlands in 1979-1980. I was wondering about origins of religion. I spoke to protestant minister but didn’t follow it up. • I was also looking at equations for elementary particles (like electrons). In addition to the ordinary three dimensions of space (x, y, z) and time ( t), physicists assume that the particle is spinning about an axis in an artificial space. (This is called “isotopic spin” or “isospin”.) • Unit sphere in three extra dimensions. • If the axis points one way, then it represents an electron. If it points in the opposite direction, then it represents a neutrino. No other directions are permitted by quantum mechanics. • But the axis of spin points to the surface of a unit sphere. So instead of talking about the direction of the spin axis, we can talk about the point on the surface of the sphere. • As early as 1973 I took the surface of this synthetic unit sphere to be real, not just a mathematical device. (Edward Teller told me in 1983 he didn’t think it was real.) But surely Nature wouldn’t put particles on a spherical surface and ignore the inside. So I assumed that the inside of the sphere was real space too. As I discovered later (1981), this gave room for the wavefunctions to represent quarks as well as electrons. The three generations of quarks and leptons, plotted vs. mass (in MeV) along the vertical axis. E. g., electron mass = 0.511 MeV • But three extra dimensions just gave room for the wavefunction to represent a single generation. I needed room for all three generations. This was accomplished by adding a fourth extra dimension. Thus was born my eightdimensional model of elementary particles; the three of ordinary space, the one of time, and the four of higher dimensional space. • You will read that string theorists need 10 or 11 dimensions. My model requires only 8 because its sphere in the extra dimensions is much larger than the string-sizes. This allows the excited states to remain relatively light, so they can represent higher generations. In string theory, the excited states are so massive that they can’t possibly represent higher generations. Thus all the particles have to be put in the ground state. This requires more extra dimensions. • Is my model for real? Yes. A simpler version was published in the leading elementary-particle physics journal in the U. S., Physical Review D, in 1986. (It didn’t treat isotopic spin). A more general version was published in the leading elementary-particle physics journal in Europe, Nuclear Physics B, in 1998. (It does treat isotopic spin.) • Here is what the quantum-mechanical equation looks like in the simplified model. is the wavefunction, and the dimensions are x 0 , x1 , ....... x 7 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 0 x 1 2 2 2 2 2 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 0 2 x 7 2 How to view extra dimensions • It’s hard to picture extra dimensions in addition to the ordinary three (x, y, z). But one can show just one ordinary dimension, say z, so that particles move back and forth on this single axis, like electrons in the Stanford Linear Accelerator. Then instead of drawing x, and y, draw x-twiddle and y-twiddle. This still gives most of the physics. • The confining isospin sphere is now just a confining circle in the x-twiddle and y-twiddle directions. The particle can move freely along the z-axis, but can’t go outside the tube along x-twiddle and y-twiddle. (An electron is a “lepton”. Quarks come in three “colors”.) Consciousness • You will note that nothing has been said about consciousness in these elementary particle models. Yet consciousness is surely a part of this universe. As an extreme example, consider human out-of-body (OoB) experiences. A physics professor that I had at Yale, Henry Margenau, wrote how as a 14-year old student he went OoB to consult a geology book at his home many miles away to learn the geological ages, and was able to use that information to pass a test the next morning. • As another example, consider Edgar Cayce, the greatest psychic of the early twentieth century. He was able to go into a trance and “look” at patients at a great distance, determine what ailed them, and then prescribe appropriate treatment and medicine. What was he seeing with? Certainly not any one of the presently known fields: strong, electromagnetic, weak, or gravitational. • Or consider Robert Monroe. He found in the 1950s that he could go OoB at will and see and hear what was going on in distant places. (He founded The Monroe Institute in north-west Virginia.) What is also interesting: he could visit people in other places where the local physics did not correspond to our own universe. Where was he going? • For a clue, consider the “tube” wherein particles are confined. In this picture a human body would be a string of about a billion quarks and electrons in the tube. • But the human consciousness might not be so confined. • There might be other universes (“tubes”) in addition to our own. Perhaps linked to ours by tunnels (or perhaps not). • So perhaps Bob Monroe’s consciousness extended over to another universe, even though his body stayed in ours. • And then there is Seth, who doesn’t have a body at all, and visits us from another universe. Seth, who maintains that consciousness comes first, and matter may or may not follow. • So where could consciousness come in to play in these elementary particle equations? Or is an equation not a proper vehicle for it? Marduk • In 1995 I visited the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE) which Edgar Cayce founded in 1929. I joined up and began to receive their monthly magazine, Venture Inward. In one of the issues, there was an advertisement for a book by Mark Macy entitled Conversations beyond the light [available at our bookstore]. I bought the book and learned about Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), messages that Maggy Harsch-Fischbach was receiving in Luxembourg from another universe on her tape recorder, radio, TV, telephone, and computer. • During one two-way radio contact in 1986, a rather strange computer-like voice entered the conversation. He said that they could call him Technician. “I am not human, I never incarnated, was never an animal. I am not energy and I am not a light being. Neither am I God. . . I was and still am a super human being assigned to planet Earth.” Another time he said, “People who never pray should not force themselves to do so. . . These are prayers too, when you pet a dog, when you smile at a child, when you are happy about the color of a flower.” • Maggy receives these signals from a transmitter on planet Marduk which is directed by Swejen Salter, a physicist who died on the parallel-earth Varid in 1985 in the midst of an experiment to alter gravity. She is assisted by 1000 others. Her special companion is Richard Francis Burton, a famous 19th century explorer, diplomat, scientist and scholar who is best known for translating Arabian Nights. • Marduk is three times larger in diameter then Earth, has polar icecaps, and most peculiarly, a 10,000,000-mile-long River of Eternity which winds around the planet dozens of times. Marduk’s physics is not Earth physics. It has about 50 million inhabitants, former Earth citizens, who stay there between lives on Earth. They mostly live along the River, natives in huts, sophisticated persons in cities; grouped by language, religion, culture. • After a number of incarnations on Earth, people can move up to level 4, the next higher spiritual level. Swejen Salter can live on level 4, and prefers to stay there, but she returns to level 3 to run Time-Stream, the sending station to Earth. • Technician is one of seven “Rainbow People”, who live on levels 6 and 7. • On June 23, 2000 I visited Maggy and Jules H-F in Luxembourg. Technician had left a short message for me on their telephone answering machine. [play tape]. • I asked Maggy to ask Technician why my life would have been different. Technician called Maggy and left another message for me on the answering machine. [play tape]. • Maggy gets whole pages of text on her computer sent by Swejen Salter for Technician and two other Rainbow People, Ishkumar and Nsitden (and probably others as well). • Ishkumar and Nsitden have included messages for me in text sent through Maggy. • Maggy’s research has shown that other universes do exist, probably in higher dimensional space, so indications from elementary-particle theory that higher dimensions exist are probably correct. • Elementary particle research has yet to reveal consciousness. However I am working on two experiments which I hope will show it. • Experiment # 1. I asked the famous remote-viewer, Joe McMoneagle, to “look” at a cosmic-ray event which occurred over Utah in 1991. He saw a particle hitting our local space-time with a velocity greater than light-speed. This must mean that the ray came from higher dimensions. [I have brought copies of the paper I wrote on it.] • I have advised a physics group planning to measure ultra high-energy cosmic rays to check to see if any rays arrive with velocities greater than light-speed. • Experiment #2. I have proposed an experiment to see if a person can psychically cause an electron to reverse the direction in which it is pointing. [I have brought copies of the paper describing it.] • The Texas A&M University physics department funded a graduate student for one year ($32,000) to set up the experiment under the direction of an atomic experimentalist. Unfortunately their schedules didn’t overlap, but a precedent was none-the-less established.
