Biography: Vernon Neppe MD, PhD, FRS(SAf), DFAPA is an internationally known Neuropsychiatrist, Behavioral Neurologist. and consciousness researcher. His book, with Reality Begins with Consciousness, with Dr Ed Close, is regarded by colleagues as a landmark achievement that may change thinking. Professor Neppe is Director of the Pacific Neuropsychiatric Institute (PNI) in Seattle, WA and also (Adjunct) Professor, Dept. of Neurology and Psychiatry at St Louis University. He is also the author of the acclaimed books, Innovative Psychopharmacotherapy as well as Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope. He is the world's leading expert on the deja vu phenomenon and has studied anomalous phenomena for thirty years writing his series of three electronic books on deja vu and also wrote the first academic book on the subject in 1983.
Biography: Dr. Edward R. Close studied at Central Methodist College, the University of Missouri, Johns Hopkins University, and four other schools, earning degrees in math, physics and environmental engineering. The focus of Dr. Close's work is the integration of science and consciousness studies. As a physicist, his areas of research are relativity and quantum mechanics. Since 1959, his exploration of the physical sciences has been enhanced by the intensive practice of consciousness expansion techniques. A member of several professional organizations, MENSA, the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (ISPE) and Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), he has traveled extensively and taught mathematics, physics, and meditation techniques. He has recently accepted the position of Science Editor for Telicom, the journal of the ISPE.
Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Vernon Neppe and physicist Dr. Edward Close discussed their work integrating science and consciousness studies, and their most recent breakthrough, positing that we live in a 9-dimensional spinning reality. While human experience is restricted to the first four dimensions, the additional hidden dimensions could provide keys to life as we know it, and explain some of the mysteries of science, they contended.
There has been a standstill in finding the link between science and consciousness, and their new theory connects them, said Close. Among the nine finite dimensions, there are three that encompass consciousness, Neppe stated, adding that their theory was mathematically sound, and helped solve certain physics conundrums like the Cabibbo angle.
Each dimension is embedded within the next higher dimension, "and everything begins to have meaning when you have a science that can explain things like UFOs, time travel, out-of-body experiences, and psychic phenomena," said Close. Another component of these higher dimensions is the transcendence of self, Neppe commented. The two also spoke about their research into the phenomenon of deja vu, and how in certain incidents, one knows what a person is going to say before they say it. Deja vu could be a kind of time distortion or a type of psychic awareness, Neppe offered, while Close noted that time isn't something that always flows in one direction at the same rate.
