Scientists Discover Reality Consists Of Nine Spinning Dimensions,
Not Just the Four Space-Time Dimensions that we daily experience.

The implications are enormous.

“Our reality will never again be the same: Whereas for a century we spoke about Space and Time never beingseparate, now we realize that the triad of Space,Time and Consciousness are always inseparably together—from the tiniest particle to the largest astronomical phenomenon.”
Dr Vernon Neppe, September 2013.

The profound Close-Neppe breakthrough could lead to other discoveries such as:

  • solving what were previously insoluble problems in physics because we now have 9 spinning dimensions to work with;
  • understanding the strange findings of Consciousness Research such as psi phenomena;
  • linking science with spirituality;
  • the concepts of infinity, Divinity, life after death;
  • the different dimensions of Time;
  • unifying the broader disciplines of Physics, Consciousness, Biology and Psychology;
  •  the fundamental role of mathematics;
  • the mystical existence of hidden realities;
  • translating science into a philosophy that works;
  • extending the finite 9 dimensional spin model to conceptualize and demonstrate new findings in Quantum Physics.

Very speculatively but now opening the door to further research, it  could even lead to science fiction concepts resolved in a new way:

  •  “Space travel”  to the most distant galaxies
  • Moving forwards and backwards in Time


Seattle, WA. Wednesday, July 17, 2013, latest update 3 September 2013
Edward R. Close, PhD, PE, and Vernon M. Neppe, MD, PhD, FRSSAf, have 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 spinning 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. These additional dimensions might provide many keys to life as we know it, and explain many of the mysteries of science including amplifying Consciousness Research and solving some of the apparent contradictions of the Standard Model of Physics. It might even suggest new models in Space and Time.”

Is this the genome for Physics?

Could this be the ‘genome for physics’? Dr. Neppe was careful in his response: “Certainly, like a biological genome, a 9-dimensional finite spinning reality, might reflect a key scientific and mathematical blueprint about our cosmos. But this is just a beginning, albeit an exciting one. We postulate that there is far more, too, to a finite genome imprint, as the ‘infinite’ may also be part of our broader reality enveloping the finite. Additionally, we provisionally propose based on mathematicologic, but cannot yet prove that there are three finite dimensions each of Space, Time and ‘Consciousness’. These combinations could have similarities to the amino acids in the genome, and with their tethering together (as TDVP postulates) the whole would produce a unitary message.” Close added: “The 9 spinning finite dimensions could reflect a component of the bigger picture of TDVP such as the transfinite and the infinite.” Neppe continued. “But, for the present, a nine-dimensional spin reality allows us to understand far more than we ever could have conceived of before. The hidden, now, is just a little less hidden.”

What is the impact for science for this finding?
The existence of 9-dimensions revolutionizes thinking not only in our current model of physics, but in other sciences, too, such as biology, psychology and consciousness studies, and may have major implications for the fundamental structure of our universe.  Amongst the mysteries clarified by the recognition of a nine dimensional finite spin reality might be new ways of conceptualizing subjective experience reports including meditation, near-death experiences and altered states of consciousness, and even possibly space-time travel. The impacts of the Close-Neppe 9D spin finding range from reformulating some basic assumptions of science to revising core ideas on philosophy and the previously unfathomable. Mathematically, applying the 9-dimensional approach might shed light on key unsolved problems or paradoxes in physics. It might even possibly alter space-time travel.

How did this finding come about?

It began in February 2012 when a Johns Hopkins Professor of Astronomy quipped, without having read the proposed ‘Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm’ (TDVP) —the ‘Theory of Everything’ (TOE) model of Drs. Neppe and Close: “When you can explain why the Cabibbo Angle is what it is, then I’ll believe you.” It was interpreted as a conversation stopper in a closed scientific group. The astronomer knew it was very, very unlikely that the Cabibbo Angle could be explained. After all, no scientist had ever solved this challenge despite the Italian Physicist, Nicola Cabibbo’s original research-based discovery in 1963 of this ‘mixing angle’ in the elementary subatomic particles that shortly thereafter were named ‘quarks’.
But can they explain the strange size?

Specifically, no-one had been able to solve the mystery of why this ‘Cabibbo mixing angle’ in elementary physical particles was the strange size it was, namely 13.04±0.05 degrees. Technically, the astronomer’s challenge was not completely fair because he was requesting a proof relating to ‘content’ and the extensive Neppe and Close paradigm of TDVP dealt with a ‘process’: a ‘procedure’—a form of looking at the big picture—and not with the specific content, although content could possibly technically follow by applying the principles, as in this case. But Close and Neppe not only explained the why of the Cabibbo angle, but in so doing, they stumbled upon a dramatic breakthrough in the nature of reality.


But why has  the Cabibbo angle not previously been explained?

The Standard Model apparently simply cannot explain the Cabibbo Angle because our current reality experience based on a 4 dimensional model (3 of space—1 of time) appears insufficient to derive it. As the prevailing appropriate model for science, most scientists have not gone beyond these 4 dimensions, even though certain areas have been difficult to explain, or even worse appear to be contradicted.

Why is there a need for a nine dimensional finite model?

In late 2011, as part of their TDVP model, Close and Neppe had postulated a 9 dimensional finite vortical reality based on the known scientific and mathematical data. Their mathematical derivation of the Cabibbo angle was therefore not achieved by accident or contrived. Close and Neppe had predicted this derivation because their TDVP model predicted exactly what they found.

So why only 9 dimensions?

The Cabibbo angle can only be derived from a 9 dimensional model because the mathematics only works with nine dimensions, not eight or ten, or any other number of dimensions. The calculated values for other dimensional models produce results that simply don’t match what is known about the empirically demonstrated size of the Cabibbo Angle. The Close-Neppe 9-dimensional spin results for the Cabibbo angle are, as predicted by TDVP, exactly correct, namely 13.032 degrees (calculated to 5 not 4 decimal places as in the original empirical Cabibbo finding). Feedback from peer group review supports this new Close-Neppe finding.

What is this TDVP model?

The TDVP model proposes a unifying broader model integrating the broader sciences. It can explain the narrower day-to-day physical realities, as well as many broader unexplained models in Consciousness Research, order, life and biology, and the psychological sciences. Many aspects of TDVP are validated by mathematics. Contained within this broader paradigm, are carefully developed concepts such as dimensions, consciousness, communication, unification of finite and infinite, and distinctions. These are described in the book Reality Begins with Consciousness by Neppe and Close (

But why can’t we use other theories instead?

No other theories have developed the concept of finite 9-dimensional rotation. For example, some String Theories involve 10 Dimensions, and suggest 9 ‘spaces’ with 1 time dimension. But these generally involve folding of dimensions, not spin, as a predominant feature, and do not fully explain basic derivations such as the Cabibbo Angle.


Will you please provide a bottom-line that is understandable to the ordinary person?


  • This finding solves one of the mysteries of physics: The reason for the size of the Cabibbo angle been solved—but that is just a curiosity.
  • Much more importantly, the Cabibbo derivation has provided a definite, necessary and new gateway to demonstrate that there are multiple dimensions of finite reality, and that these have a specific, defined quality—nine dimensional spin. 
  • Applying the 9-dimensional approach could lead the way to solving some of the other problems of science that appear contradicted or unexplained at this time. The 9-dimensional spin finding is dramatic enough that scientists might need to rethink almost everything they’ve thought before. 



The Proofs Behind 9D-Spin:

Peer review and proof

Numerous scientists have gone through the Close-Neppe Cabibbo research in the past three months. No experts have refuted it and many are impressed. “Preliminarily, our work appears correct and no reviewer, scientist or mathematician has refuted it.” stated Dr Close. “We continue to have the calculations and theory examined by leading scientists, and we continue to get the responses from reviewers that the ‘derivation appears solid but we are not expert enough in all these areas to confirm everything definitively.’ At this point, based on the evaluations of a large number of experts, there is a very high probability of our model being correct, but we need to put together the opinions of peers in multiple different specialties. The newness of the finding and its broad reference elements make this work so specialized and interdisciplinary that there are few peers available who can judge all of it as a whole.”

Dr. Neppe emphasized another important aspect: “Three elements make this discovery particularly difficult to scientifically peer-review, namely: 

  • Theoretical physics, particularly expertise on Cabibbo-like mixing angles;
  •  the mathematical requirements, specifically of dimensional extrapolation with an assist from the calculus of distinctions, both fundamental to TDVP mathematicologic; and 
  • the cutting-edge theoretical knowledge of the broad scientific and mathematical model that we’ve called TDVP, as this allows appreciation of the logic behind the 9-D spin hypothesis. 

Moreover, because of the radical implications of these findings, there are those who will not officially confirm that they agree with them, although they may privately express such an opinion. Mathematicians and theoretical physicists who are open-minded to a profound new paradigm are invited to evaluate this work.”

Replication and mathematical proof

Proving this again is simply a mathematical calculation: In many empirical areas of science, one needs to replicate the findings. Often scientific experiments need to be repeated sometimes multiple times to ensure that there is no error, or that the finding is not by chance. However, in this instance, because the exact figure for the Cabibbo angle can be easily calculated here, the proof can be derived mathematically. Dr Close added: “So it is easily replicable and demonstrable by just doing the correct calculations. One can even work backwards to check the calculations and they still work. In fact, the final stage of the derivation is a simple multiplication, based on the number of dimensional rotations necessary in 9-D reality. This is one reason why we can stipulate 9 not 8 or 10 or any other number of dimensions. And 9 dimensional spin was exactly what we expected based on our TDVP model. Particularly interesting would be an extension of this work, mathematically testing other models that have not yet been validated or contain conundrums, by applying a 9-dimensional spin finite reality. This would generalize the findings to other areas, and would remarkably confirm that the prevailing worldview of 3S-1t is incomplete, and also, that this Cabibbo result is a sound derivation, not just a lucky accident.”


An overview of the key Cabibbo derivation

The Physics: The Close and Neppe derivation of the Cabibbo angle requires knowledge of certain well-known fundamental parameters, such as the radius of the hydrogen atom, the speed of light, and some basic understanding of physics and chemistry. The physics also requires special corrections such as the Lorentz transformation (because the electron rotation speeds approach that of light speed), and appreciation of the conversion of the magnetic moment of an electron into electron angular momentum (spin moment).

The Mathematics: The mathematical derivation involves orthogonal delineation of dimensions and the application of radian measures where appropriate. Ultimately, the derived Cabibbo figure is calculated by the process of ‘dimensional extrapolation’, a mathematical technique developed by Dr. Close allowing rotational communications across and between higher dimensions. In this instance, the extrapolation is through to the ninth dimension, applying the half-spin properties of elementary particles, of which quarks and electrons are the naturally stable examples. Also pertinent is the ‘calculus of distinctions’ (CoD). CoD is a fundamental system of logic and basic mathematics which Dr Close originally developed, and later amplified with Dr Neppe. In the CoD, the fundamental concept of ‘dimensions’ are conceptualized as ‘variables of extent’ —Space, Time and Consciousness substrates that can be measured. Applying CoD principles, these scientists have been able to precisely conceptualize a 9-dimensional reality mathematically. By further applying the CoD, the dimensions are conceptualized relative to the types of measurable numbers used in our conventional experiential 4 dimensional Euclidean reality.


Exploring the unknown: The mathematical derivation of the Cabibbo angle appears complex only because apparently nobody before had applied nine finite rotating dimensions into the derivation. However, when a solution involving this 9-dimensional spin reality is applied, the calculation becomes clearer: Under those circumstances, applying known fundamental physics laws and constants, plus the new mathematical extrapolation approach to rotating across multiple spinning dimensions, works. Consequently, explaining this Cabibbo mixing angle in fermions— the elementary particles such as quarks and electrons that have ‘half-spin’ properties— is simply the recognition that our finite reality actually has nine dimensions, and that these ‘half-spin’ properties of elementary subatomic particles are constantly rotating, like vortices, through these nine dimensions.


 Where TDVP fits in:

To understand the context of the Cabibbo finding, knowledge of TDVP is useful because this explains why the hypothesis of a 9D finite spin reality was being tested. It suggested the logical reason to predict a 9-dimensional finite vortical model as Neppe and Close had formally predicted this in late 2011 in their TDVP model. The Cabibbo derivation tests only this TDVP hypothesis because it appears to be the only formally developed 9D-spin model. So effectively, Close and Neppe’s demonstration a year-and-a-quarter after their challenge to derive the revolutionary Cabibbo angle, led to a 9-dimensional spin derivation that has become a powerful validation of the finite theoretical underpinnings behind TDVP. The Cabibbo finding itself is a curiosity; the consequences, apparently very significant. These findings are described in detail in the peer-reviewed Fourth Edition of the Neppe and Close E-book Reality Begins with Consciousness: A paradigm shift that works (Chapter 9) , and in a published peer-reviewed article , guest edited by an Israeli Dimensional Biopsychophysicist, who is very familiar with the Neppe-Close TDVP model.

What else could this explain? Again Dr Neppe was very careful in his answer. “Significant findings tend to develop new hypotheses that we cannot even conceive of at the beginning. If this finding is significant, and a 9 dimensional finite spin reality certainly appears to be, then there should be other areas that such a model does explain.” 

“Like what?”

The non-spherical electron

 “Like the non-spherical electron: Already, while deriving this Cabibbo calculation, certain peripheral, but important contradictions appeared. For example, while calculating the effect of magnetic moment on electron angular momentum, one of the calculations balanced except the speed of light was exceeded.”  

“Now this is not possible in current physics.” Dr Close added: “So this was a conundrum that needed a solution. From this, we were able to conclude that the electron is not entirely spherical. One particular configuration slowed the rotation sufficiently to get results below the speed of light.”

“And is there anything more?”

Not always locating particles

“Yes, there is much more.” Dr Close continued. “For example, there has always been a mystery about why some particles, like electrons, cannot be located at times. They don’t of course, disappear from objective reality, it’s just they cannot be located in four-dimensional space-time. It appears one solution may be that we can apply a double normal distribution curve to the positioning of these particles in a 9-dimensional reality, and this may explain why these particles appear to disappear then reappear.” 

And this means?

Multidimensional Time

“I suspect that many of the unexplained conundrums in particle physics may become relevant using this model.” Dr Neppe added. “And it may be that we will be talking of 9 dimensions consisting of 3 of Space, 3 of Time and 3 of Consciousness, for example. If we had multidimensional time, could this imply some kind of movement across time.”

Could this mean we could ‘travel’ through space or time or both across these higher dimensions?

“This is a radical idea, certainly, but it is theoretically certainly a significant consideration that justifies further research.” 

 Dimensions of Consciousness

 If we had several dimensions of ‘Consciousness’ (and please remember we’re using dimensions in a very precise mathematical sense, and a precise new definition of ‘Consciousness’) there are enormous implications for higher awareness, emotions and motivations. But these are early days, although, we think that our book Reality Begins with Consciousness, cogently motivates some of these ideas.”

About the scientists


About The Neppe-Close TDVP collaboration: The Cabibbo Angle derivation confirmed the hypothesis that a significant fundamental component of TDVP, namely the postulated 9 finite vortical dimensions, appears to be correct. The Neppe-Close TDVP model is based on empirical scientific data, mathematical logic and further conceptual innovations, and the Cabibbo derivation is an example of its testability: The 9D spin and Cabibbo angle findings plus the TDVP model have been extensively reviewed by peers in many countries and this process is ongoing, as further ideas develop, potentially leading to other breakthroughs based on a 9 dimensional spin model.

After a combined half-century of separately working on their related theories, Neppe and Close, then paired together in 2009, recognizing that they needed to combine their expertise in divergent disciplines to maximize and unify their TDVP Theory of Everything model. TDVP is discussed in detail in the 50 chapter, 500+ page, Neppe-Close E-book, “Reality Begins With Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift That Works ( 4th Edition)” (RBC) ( along with a clarifying E-Book Glimpses and Glossary to make key portions of TDVP more comprehensible.
Edward Close became active in the field of Consciousness Research in 1986. Amongst his 7+ books is his classic book “Transcendental Physics: Integrating the Search for Truth”. ( showing how consciousness, mathematics and physics meet. Also, during the past two decades, Vernon Neppe became increasingly involved with the complex physics and mathematical models conceptualized in his multidimensional vortical model, and even became Science Editor of the journal of the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (, Telicom, a position now occupied by Dr Close.

Historical perspective on TDVP: However, even long before their Cabibbo findings, the TDVP model had profoundly challenged the current scientific paradigm. Dr. Neppe motivates: “Our TDVP model, based on empirical scientific data, mathematical logic and further conceptual innovations, was borne out of necessity because prevailing current physics contains some areas that simply do not fit.”TDVP seems to provide the first feasible multidisciplinary model for unifying Science and Consciousness, and this  Neppe-Close broader metaparadigm impacts thinking not only in the Physical Sciences, but in the Psychological, Biological and Consciousness Sciences, as well as in Mathematics, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy and the Transcendental disciplines. Based on objective criteria compared with 23 other models, TDVP appears to be far the strongest candidate for a so-called ‘theory of everything’. Despite being adjudicated prior to the Cabibbo information. RBC (earlier editions) was a bronze medallist for the Book of the Year (in Science), plus the Eric Hoffer Award finalist. The RBC book has gone to four editions in a year and half, as more and more information accumulated supporting the TDVP model and so that the authors could clarify concepts and amplify their ideas; What the Cabibbo Angle derivation has now done is to definitely demonstrate the hypothesis that a significant fundamental component of TDVP, namely the postulated 9 finite vortical dimensions, appears to be correct.
