of paper, "Consciousness as a sub-quantum phenomenon"
major problems in cosmology are addressed and solutions given. One is the result
of the failure of theorists to find a way of switching off the explosive
"big bang" of creation they postulate. The continuing explosion is
then called the problem of the "cosmological constant" pushing the
galaxies apart at absurdly high rates. The other is the failure of all attempts
to reconcile Einstein's theory of gravity called, "general relativity"
with the other so-called, "pillar of 20th century achievement - quantum
theory. The latter deals with the small-scale mechanics of the atom.
solution published in "Frontier Perspectives" showed that a background
medium needs to exist built of two kinds of energy: positive and negative. The
negative kind is defined as having the force needed to accelerate an object
pointing opposite the direction of motion it produces, instead of in the same
direction as in the case of positive energy. This idea is not new but the way it
is applied is novel. Primary particles of these two kinds are shown to self
create by collision and also mutually annihilate to form a filamentous
background structure appearing very like the neural network of the brain. It
evolves an immortal conscious intelligence but all it can do is to produce waves
rather like the brainwaves we record. It uses these waves to generate the
illusion of matter out of itself and at the same time the same waves produce
long range density gradients. These produce the force of gravity and
mathematical analysis matches the predictions of Einstein's relativity theories.
The latter need therefore to be abandoned: nobody is ever going to reconcile
them with quantum theory because no background medium can coexist with
the new approach suggests that human minds could be partitioned-off fractions of
the background, "ietheric mind" and so could be immortal. Most other
psi or paranormal phenomena can also be shown to fit in nicely with the new

Ms De Swarte,
Professor Bernard Carr, to his credit, seems to be doing his
best to maintain a balance between conflicting factions of the Society for
Psychical Research. The scepticism of some members is so strong as to be totally
obstructive and has to be set against that of members looking for explanations
of psi as real phenomena. However, he makes one statement in his reply in PN
dated March 17 which needs a response: it shows some proof is needed that the
SPR really is attempting to be even-handed. Action speaks louder than words.
He states that the journal of the SPR (of which he is President)
is not appropriate for cosmological issues "even if they do have
implications for psi". This seems to indicate his intention of keeping
quantum physics and psychic matters in separate boxes so that they cannot
influence one another. This has been the attitude of mainline physicists all
along and is an anathema to us.
Most physicists fear the paranormal. The very prominent
physicist, Professor Stephen Weinberg, for example, said on TV that if Professor
Jahn of Princeton University proved psychokinesis true, by the experiments he
was doing, it would discredit all science from Newton onwards. He then used this
to justify Jahn's demotion from Dean to Associate. This illustrates the
prevailing attitude: one which will discredit science right across the board if
no change appears very soon.
Theorists are searching for a 'Theory of Everything' and yet
deliberately ignore the major factor: that psi phenomena suggest that something
else must exist behind the universe of matter. The paper which is our main bone
of contention, one that the SPR refused to consider, showed that solutions to
two outstanding problems in cosmology appeared in a manner which brought psi
phenomena within the compass of physics. It also showed consciousness could be
immortal since mind appeared as part of a background structure.
Mainline physicists insist that mind is mere brain function and
dies with the brain.
Since then the SPR has published its exciting and comprehensive
'Scole Report'. This provides scientifically validated evidence that
consciousness survives death. The SPR therefore needs to back this up by looking
for a quantum compatible theoretical explanation.
I submit, therefore, that for progress to be ensured it is
essential that cosmology be integrated with the research the SPR is already
pursuing. The SPR refused my paper on grounds that it needed to first appear in
a scientific journal because the expertise needed for its assessment did not
exist within the SPR. This condition is now satisfied since the paper has been
fully peer reviewed and published in the Spring/Summer 1997 issue of 'Frontier
Perspectives' under the title, 'Consciousness as a Sub-Quantum Phenomenon'. Is
the SPR now prepared to prove its claim of having no corporate policy by
publication of this approach?
