What does 'Theory of Reality' propose? Is it to do with manifesting reality
shaped by thoughts? Or is it a coping methodology of everyday life?
The Theory of Reality (TOR) involves both
(a) changing human thought around the nature of consciousness and the nature of
the universe and (b) empowering others with new knowledge and tools to look
inward for their own answers to profound and not so profound questions, and to
advance their learning, creativity and human development.
the support of world leaders in neuroscience, we have created a new knowledge
base, which provides compelling scientific evidence for existence beyond the
brain. We have credible new evidence that you can exist and function
separately without your brain; that the 'you' beyond your brain is
indestructible, even by physical death; that your brain does not create your
thoughts; and that your brain and body are temporary vehicles rather than your

been referred to as spiritual enlightenment.

variety of tools and techniques have been associated with producing or
facilitating Peak Experiences or with otherwise deeply enhancing one's
creative, intellectual, visionary or integrative understanding and/or
capabilities. Everyone has the capacity
to accomplish all of the expanded-reality techniques discussed in the TOR if
they are inclined to do so and if they dedicate some time and energy to it.
TOR also provides credible proof that consciousness is not something that
arises from the human brain, but rather is the fundamental fabric of all that
exists including ourselves. Q.
How can science, which is obsessed with facts and evidence reconcile with the
metaphysical? Is Theory of Reality a religion (way of life) based on
The response goes to the heart of what the
TOR is about. At its core, the TOR
involves a combination and an integration of neuroscience, physics and
a neurologist and neuroscientist, I have had the opportunity to experience the
brain and consciousness from numerous perspectives in a variety of clinical and
research settings. In my college days, I had taken a road less traveled to
medical school by concentrating my coursework in physics, chemistry and
mathematics, subjects which were not only fascinating, but which also provided
very different ways to approach and reflect upon reality and the universe.
my scientific training and subsequent career, I found myself consistently
gravitating not only to the Science and Medical sections of bookstores but also
to the Metaphysical, New Age, Self-Help and Spiritual sections of such stores
in search of answers to many of the ongoing mysteries of science and to many of
life's most profound and perplexing questions.
TOR represents an amalgamation of all of these perspectives and how they
complement and inform one another.
important bits and pieces of the TOR and its infrastructure and underpinnings
have been presented in various forms over the past 100 years, the TOR differs
from anything else that has been previously advanced. Its unique and integrative approach allows a transformative new
level of understanding of ourselves, our lives and our place in the universe.
science underneath all of this exists—(some of it has only come to light in
bits and pieces over the past couple of decades). Part of the reason it has been difficult to piece all of this
together relates to most of the attempts coming from within one field at a
time--largely physics or philosophy--and virtually no attempts from
neuroscience or a combination of neuroscience, physics, metaphysics and
multiple other sciences.
amalgamation of fields and approaches has often been exceedingly difficult in
human endeavor. Individuals have
generally tended to approach life and its various issues and questions from a
certain vantage point which often relates to a particular field of one's
training. This, in turn, has often led
to a lack of open-mindedness and to defending one approach against
rather than to finding the common denominators, which define how the different
So instead of framing the issue as 'science vs. spirituality' or
'neuroscience vs. physics', for example, and detailing how each field might
compete with or detract from another, we need to look carefully at how each of
these areas informs the others.
Without recognizing the nature and scope of these intersections, we miss
a big part of the whole.
TOR contains many spiritual aspects but does not represent itself as a specific
religion or spiritual tradition. It
recognizes and respects the potential value of (and is compatible with) all
spiritual and religious traditions.
Is there an alternate reality?
Yes, there is considerable evidence for
other dimensions enfolded within the same time and space as this one.
(discussed in detail in the book-TOR Secondary Evidence #6 ).
is also considerable scientific evidence that the material (physical) universe
that we perceive around us constitutes only a miniscule portion of all that
exists (see TOR Secondary Evidence #8).
Moreover, physics tells us that the vast majority of the energy that we
are missing and are unable to access resides in the higher frequencies where
energy densities are greater than what we generally deal with in our day to day
lives on this physical plane—and much greater than the densities of our bodies
or even substances such as lead which we consider to be very dense. Together, these factors strongly suggest
that what we are currently missing in our materialist perception of reality
must involve other dimensions at higher (finer) frequencies.
we cannot readily "tune in" to these higher frequencies needn't come as a great
surprise to us given that our brains are a form of transducer which is
constantly converting waveform information into particle type information and
often "stepping down" frequencies in
the process (see TOR Secondary Evidence #2, #3, #4, #7). It is analogous to tuning into the right
frequency ("being on the same wavelength") to listen to a particular radio or
television station—when we (or the transducer we are using) are not on the same
wavelength or frequency, we can't perceive the station even though it is there
around us in what appears to be "empty space".
Again, the station exists in the same space and time, yet if we're not
tuned in, we don't perceive it.
Obviously, if we did not have any transducer or filter and were tuned
into all frequencies (including all TV and radio stations in all languages on
earth, as a modest example) at once, it would be more than a minor overload in
terms of our processing capabilities.
experimental neuroscience studies by Russell and Karen De Valois at Berkeley in
1979 (which have subsequently been confirmed by many other laboratories)
provided compelling evidence that the brain does not respond to material
features but rather to wave or frequency interference patterns (demonstrable via
Fourier transform processes as discussed in TOR Secondary Evidence #3). These wave or frequency interference
patterns are clearly "more fundamental" than the material objects that they
represent and must emanate from a different, more fundamental level than our
is compelling evidence to suggest that consciousness does not arise from the
physical matter of the brain or any other matter on this physical plane (see
TOR Primary Evidence #3), and hence, consciousness itself must emanate from a
more fundamental (deeper, higher frequency, enfolded) level than this material
work of Alain Aspect and colleagues in 1982 and subsequent related experiments
by Bouwmeester et. al. in 1997, Zbinden et. al. in 2001 and others (see TOR
Secondary Evidence #1 and #4), which established that photons (light particles)
are able to communicate instantaneously whether they are a few feet or a few
billion miles apart, also showed that such communication occurs with no
exchange of energy . Such findings
provided novel, reproducible, convincing evidence from many laboratories of a
form of communication or signaling occurring without the use of power (unlike
radio, TV or cell phone signaling, for example). Such communication between photons (light particles) was also
documented to be occurring at speeds far exceeding the speed with which light
can travel on this material plane. It
is clear that such signaling must be occurring from a different level, which is
more fundamental than energy as we perceive it on this physical plane.
evidence for higher levels of existence can be found in the thousands of
researched accounts of Near- Death Experiences (NDEs) that include features
highly suggestive of a finer, more energy dense (higher frequency/lower wavelength)
realm or realms including: non-locality and extraordinary awareness of
interconnectedness; instantaneous telepathic exchanges of information in a
timeless, placeless dimension; extraordinarily enhanced light, colors and
radiance of everything including beings; and, in some cases a variety of other "unearthly" environmental
features. In addition, phenomena such
as congenitally blind individuals having the capability of seeing during NDEs
are highly suggestive of function at a different level than our physical
plane. (See TOR Primary Evidence #1)
"world" that we see as mountains, oceans, buildings, planets etc., is
illusionary at its core yet real in its perception. This is the basis for mystics speaking of the illusionary nature
of our world. Both this plane and its
deeper counterparts can all be thought of as "real" or forms of "reality"-this
may be the easiest way to think of them.
Alternatively, all (or all but the deepest level of pure consciousness)
could be thought of as illusionary depending upon one's vantage point and
