Special Announcement 22 August 2016:

Dr Vernon Neppe and Dr Edward Close win prestigious ISPE international prize: the Whiting Memorial Award for 2016.

Dr. Edward Close and Dr. Vernon Neppe were honored earlier this month (August 2016) with the coveted 2016 Whiting Memorial Award for “expanding boundaries of scientific understanding”. The Whiting Memorial Fund is a philanthropic fund administered by the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry ("ISPE") (thethousand.com) to reward individuals and groups, whose accomplishments and goals exemplify the ideals of ISPE. (Official Announcement: TheThousand.com)

The official announcement mentions that:

This international prize is open to anyone worldwide in any discipline. It is given to a “person/ persons or organization (outside or within ISPE) who typifies the ISPE ideal of someone who strives to benefit society in general through advanced enquiry, original research and/or creative contributions, and who has demonstrated significant progress in these endeavors.” This sought after prize may be conferred yearly, but historically has seldom been awarded, because it is only conferred when the committee unanimously chooses a worthy nominee. ISPE’s only mission is “to attract the world’s most intellectually gifted individuals and hopefully direct their achievements for the betterment of all humankind.” ISPE advances no political, governmental, religious, race, gender, ethnic, activist or academic agenda. “This is what ISPE is all about: Making our world better by encouraging profound excellence”, emphasized Stephen Levin, the ISPE President. “This award should have happened a long time ago to Drs Neppe and Close. It’s well-deserved and too long coming.” 

What is unique is that the ISPE organization played a special major role in this first joint award of the Whiting Prize: Vernon Neppe MD, PhD, Fellow Royal Society (SAf), and Edward Close PhD, PE, actually met through their ISPE membership. Moreover, these two scientists deliberately specifically joined ISPE to collaborate with another member on developing a unified theoretical model for reality: They had both already developed their own models but “we regarded that as insufficient. We needed to combine any expertise and knowledge we had to progress with this task, which we regarded as, and still regard as, the ‘song we’re singing in this world’. This work gone beyond us and we realize that development of an entirely new model of reality is of groundbreaking importance,” Dr Neppe commented.


The two scientists have subsequently worked together for eight years and probably spent 4000 hours each on their TDVP paradigm shifting work. Drs Close and Neppe have needed to apply the empirical and theoretical findings of quantum physics, mathematical logic, philosophy, biology, psychology and consciousness research. But often it has been their creative jumps into the unknown that have been most important. Hundreds of scientists worldwide have examined aspects of the Neppe-Close work, which many have compared with an advanced multidisciplinary graduate degree which requires significant study and application. Therefore, there are only a few experts worldwide.


The Whiting Prize has not been awarded to an ISPE member since 2008. The ISPE is a worldwide 1 in 1000 intelligence organization currently with about 500 members that emphasizes progression through different levels of accomplishment. Drs Close and Neppe have both attained the highest public level of ‘Diplomate of the ISPE’ (where there are about 2 dozen worldwide). Diplomate is the highest public level of ISPE achievement: Currently there are about two dozen such Diplomates worldwide."


This is not their first award for their research: In February 2013 in Puebla, Mexico, Dr Neppe and Dr Close received the well-respected Gabino Barreda Award and medal involving the earlier version of their critically important metaparadigm “Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm” (TDVP).

By that stage, Close and Neppe had empirically shown how Space, Time, and Consciousness (STC) are all separate, and not just being ‘derivative of each other’ in our 3S-1t reality. Instead, STC is always in union. They further argued cogently that we have gone beyond Minkowski’s 1908 union of ‘Space-Time’ and as of 2011, we have their new proposed union of ‘Space-Time-Consciousness’ (STC).

The Space-Time-Consciousness (STC) union is strongly substantiated in their massive 500 page book ‘Reality Begins With Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift that Works’ (www.brainvoyage.com) and in peer-reviewed publications. They contended there must be a ‘triad’: Not only is Space and Time always together, but that three of Space, Time and the Extent of Consciousness are inseparably tethered together.

They had also demonstrated that the Neppe-Close model of the ‘Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm’ (TDVP) is very versatile in explaining numerous facets of reality without contradiction: TDVP scores perfectly on criteria for a a so-called 'Theory of Everything' (TOE). TDVP scores 39/39; other than their own previous models at 27 and 23/39 respectively, none of the 21 others examined have scored even 20/39.

They had also proposed a mind-brain philosophical model that could justify our regular three spatial dimensions in a moment of time experience of reality, as well as the infinite, survival after death, altered states of consciousness, and psi. This is the Neppe-Close philosophy of Unified Monism, incorporating their TDVP scientific and mathematical model. This is well supported. and allows a different perspective from the philosophically restricted options of ‘Consciousness is derivative of Space-Time or Mass-energy’ or vice versa: ‘Consciousness’ in this context has its own dimensional ‘extent’ identity—this ‘extent’ of consciousness is necessarily inseparably tethered to Space and Time. They argued that life, and order have links with the infinite, and that there is still meaning in the inanimate.

However, ironically, that Mexican award preceded what might have developed into even more major contributions, which were direct results of those previous hypotheses and findings. But this time they could prove their work mathematically and extend it in paradigm shifting ways. These scientists were able to mathematically demonstrate that finite reality involves 9 spinning dimensions, that all particles are in union with the third property ‘gimmel’ thought to be consciousness at least in part, that this gimmel is mass-less and energy-less and in union with mass and energy such that every fermionic particle at the subatomic level have different properties and that the materialistic model of the atom is refuted, and that the proportions of dark matter and dark energy to the cosmos, correlates exactly with the ratio of gimmel to TRUE in the equivalent cosmological elements, namely predominantly Hydrogen and also Helium. These findings suggest that the same laws of nature apply for quantum, macroscopic and cosmological levels, something different from current thinking about ‘quantum weirdness’.

Effectively, their work goes a long way to showing that spirituality and science are linked together and that mathematics is part of the broader reality of our existence, not just a way of calculating.

These scientists look forward to furthering their work and facilitating others to incorporate these concepts into their further research. They have never received any funding and hope this recognition may be an impetus for this to change.

Scientists Discover Reality Consists Of 9 Dimensions,
Not Just 4 Space-Time Dimensions

This Breakthrough Could Lead to Profound Discoveries

This is applied not only to  the actuality of the "jewel in quantum physics" but of the pertinence for all of reality not only quantum particle physics.

The new mathematics of the Calculus of Distinctions could be the metaphorical diamond in the jewel because of its great versatility.

Space, Time and Consciousness advance enormously with these findings.

Edward R. Close, PhD, PE, and Vernon M. Neppe, MD, PhD, FRSSAf, today announced a profoundly important finding that affects the basic assumptions of physics and changes the way scientists understand life and the Universe.

“It appears that our current concept of reality is incomplete,”

Dr. Neppe commented. “Dr. Close and I have demonstrated that we live in a 9-dimensional finite reality, not just our traditional three dimensions of space happening in a present moment of time. We experience physical living in our restricted 4-dimensional finite reality, but the rest of our reality appears to be hidden beyond our direct view. Yet these additional dimensions might provide many keys to life as we know it, and explain many of the mysteries of science."

A 2018 addition
"These nine quantized dimensions only describe our finite side.  The 9 discrete finite dimensions are part of  a broader continuous infinite reality.   So on the one side we have the finite pieces that are whole —“quanta”, and on the other side, we have an ongoing infinite reality that goes on forever in space and time and consciousness. These 9 dimensions are embedded in this infinite that has no beginning and no end in time and in space, that pervades an infinite repository of knowledge and information that can be targeted specifically in meaning. This infinite pervades all of reality. Theologians might interpret this as G-d.
Amazingly, Drs Neppe and Close have yet to receive a penny of research funding for their work. It may be that their contribution is decades ahead of its time, but given that their contribution could be argued to be the most fundamental scientific findings of the twenty-first century, it is a tragedy. Both researchers are advancing in age and imagine what could be done if they had more time to devote to their work instead of needing to earn a living working full time and spending between them maybe ten thousand unpaid hours to discover the key elements of their work, namely that:
  • The quantized finite of volumes of space, time and consciousness, and the continuous infinite is one single whole reality.
  • there are 9 finite dimensions embedded in this infinite. 
  • that a third component of reality besides mass and energy is ‘gimmel’.  Gimmel is likely at least in part or whole pure consciousness. 
  • Mass, energy and ‘consciousness content’ (MEC) make up the content (the container) of reality. 
  • This container of MEC  is measurable by the extent of the dimensions of space, time and extended consciousness  (STC) that exist in everything.
  • MEC and STC are impacted by the influence and intent of events of mass, energy and content consciousness
  • It is this impact, content and extent that make can be mathematically portrayed in a new calculus the calculus of distinctions developed originally by Dr Edward Close.
  • Our reality is a unit, and there is no separate quantum weirdness. Once gimmel is explained then everything comes together: The quantal, the macro-world and even the vastness of cosmology.
  • The mathematics show that our concepts of whole numbers of protons, neutrons and electrons alone, or of components like quarks on their own is impossible. This refutes materialism at the quantal level. it is mathematically impossible.
  • It becomes possible when introducing gimmel and the concept of TRUE units (Triadic Rotational Units of Equivalence involving volumes of mass, energy and consciousness). 
  • TRUE. units leads to amazing findings: Dark matter and dark energy are explained by correlating with gimmel dramatically; Dark matter is in union with protons and neutrons. Dark energy is closely correlated with electrons. But how can 95.1% of the cosmos (dark substances in cosmology) fit into 4.9% (matter/ energy as we know it)?  It can because we don’t deal with just our 3S-1t material physical reality but the 9 dimensional model."
Now is all this speculation? No it is proven mathematically using new mathematical techniques. 
And the Neppe-Close TDVP model has just grown over several years.  No-one has refuted it possibly because it reflects fundamental truths. And this was well motivated even before their mathematical proofs.
An appeal for you to contribute to science
What can you, the reader, do?
Please recognize that this might be the most important, fundamental work in the world and needs funding. Philanthropists please help!  And we’re serious. There is, in our opinion, no more groundbreaking scientific research because it is basic to reality. Drs Close and Neppe are singing their song in this world, extending the work of Einstein, Planck and some of the great philosophers. Please help Vernon Neppe and Edward Close to contribute their selfless work to mankind before it is too late.
