Survival Physics By

*Note prior to retirement and switch
A major paradigm, accepted across all established
scientific disciplines, states that mind and consciousness
result from brain function alone. This means that mind must
vanish at the instant of brain death, a conclusion totally
at variance with the evidence. This evidence has been building
for over a century and is now so firm as to effectively
constitute totally convincing proof of survival. Roll (9)
and Zammit (12) cover this aspect exhaustively.
The reason scientists in general go to great pains to discredit
this evidence is because it conflicts with all theories
physicists have so far developed. Until a major paradigm-shift
in physics has occurred there can be no hope of any change
of attitude. Hence it is of paramount importance that the
flaws in existing physics are resolved so that it becomes
extended to incorporate survival and other controversial
This article shows how a successful search made to solve
three difficulties in physics resulted in providing just
such an extension. The resulting “Survival Physics”
shows that, as a natural consequence of the mathematical
logic, at least the sub-conscious mind is the true reality
at the base of all that exists. Although the brain must
die its exact copy lives on to be connected with another
parallel universe. Built the same way as our own, these
seem just as real as ours when the mind is in register.
This is not the only attempt at producing a theory of survival.
The states of others, presented at an SPR conference on
24 April 2004, seem less advanced.
THE PROBLEMS WITH PHYSICS
Theoretical physics has so far been unable to resolve three
major difficulties. In consequence greater and greater sophistication
in concepts and mathematical formalism has resulted, yet
no solutions are yet within sight. Could it be that theorists
are all leading each other into a blind alley so that a
totally different approach is required? This article shows
that when a return is made to the logic of common sense,
in which only fairly elementary maths is required, a solution
to all three problems appears simultaneously.
One problem concerns the big bang theory that purports to
explain the creation of the universe from nothing. It is
clearly flawed since it makes a major false prediction known
as the “Cosmological Constant” (CC). Theorists
are unable to switch off their creative explosion. To show
how serious this is I quote the Nobel laureate, Steven Weinberg,
(11) who wrote in “Reviews of Modern Physics”
January 1989 that this “represents a veritable crisis
for physics”. Even today the situation remains unchanged
after the 25 years of its existence. In 1987 this author
realised his own expertise was potentially able to solve
the difficulty. Unfortunately the second difficulty known
as “wave-particle-duality” needed simultaneous
When matter is repeatedly divided the atom is eventually
reached. Then further division shows this to constitute
sub-atomic particles. Quantum theory is the study of the
mechanics operating at this sub-microscopic level of reality.
In the 1920’s it was discovered that at this level
nothing moved as it does at the visible level. In fact motion
seemed governed by a plan formed by interfering waves. If
two pebbles are thrown into a pond simultaneously waves
spread out in rings and the rings cross into each other
creating a patch of rough water. This is the interference
pattern characteristic of waves. At the quantum level, particles
only appear where the wave amplitudes add up; none are seen
where they cancel out. The conceptual difficulties are best
illustrated by reading a book by David Deutsch (2) called,
“The Fabric of Reality” (Penguin 1998). He says
the only possible interpretation requires the universe to
split in two every time one of these particles has a choice
of two ways to go. It involves an almost infinite set of
universes existing in the same place each multiplying at
an almost infinite rate! This is needed if consciousness
is kept out of the solution. One of the original ideas from
the 20’s, however, is called the “Copenhagen
Interpretation”. This says that a particle only exists
when an observer “collapses the wave function”.
So this interpretation had already accepted consciousness
to be involved in the creation of matter.
To me this meant that the quantum level had an unreal quality
and had to be contrived by consciousness. There had to be
a true reality at a deeper level having a structure able
to evolve a conscious intelligence. It could not, therefore,
operate on the wave mechanics of the quantum level but needed
to exist to make those waves. It was more likely to operate
on the classical mechanics found satisfactory for explaining
how stars and planets moved: “Classical Mechanics”.
This introduced the third difficulty for which no resolution
has emerged for over 70 years. Einstein’s theory called
“General Relativity” (GR) is accepted as the
best since it has survived almost every experimental check.
Unfortunately it is incompatible with quantum theory. It
was also impossible to apply it to solve the problem of
the cosmological constant owing to the assumption that only
motion relative to the observer existed. Now as objects
are speeded up they gain energy of motion called “kinetic
energy”. In relativity its value differs from one
observer to another if the observers also see each other
in motion. Consequently kinetic energy, according to GR,
has to be regarded as illusory. To solve the problem of
the CC kinetic energy had to be real. Consequently a new
mechanics had to be derived. I had to be, not only compatible
with quantum theory, but also had to match all the experimental
checks that had elevated the status of GR to one of the
two major achievements of 20’th century physics.
To provide a satisfactory alternative to GR seemed to present
a formidable obstacle since this had to be derived first.
However, by applying the mechanical engineers logic of common
sense a satisfactory new “Exact Classical Mechanics”
(ECM) soon emerged. It matched all the data just as well
as did relativity theory but had the advantage of starting
out quantum compatible. It was first published in Russia
in 1991 (5) but can be found on the “Campaign for
Philosophical Freedom” website of Michael Roll, (1)
very professionally organised by Paul Read.
ECM theory had all motion referred to the local background
medium, to be called the “i-ther”. So now kinetic
energy could be regarded as real. To enable a paradox free
theory of creation from the zero energy state of nothingness
to appear it was also necessary to extend the theory to
yield an, “Opposed Energy Dynamics”.
ECM theory yields Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2
by a totally different method but without reference to relativity
in any way. This equation shows that matter is made out
of energy. So energy is the ultimate building substance
of the universe of matter. Since matter had to emerge as
a construct of the i-ther, this ultimate level of reality
had also be made from the same stuff.
For energy to appear from nothing it had to exist in two
opposite and complementary kinds: positive and negative.
We assume we are made of only positive energy defined by
Newton’s laws. He said that when an object was caused
to accelerate it had to be pushed by a “force of action”
pointing in the same direction as the motion produced. An
object made of negative energy would move in a direction
opposite this force. Although difficult to accept at first
introduction, this actually involves no conceptual difficulties.
If two objects both made of negative energy are imagined
to collide, both have their responses reversed and so the
effects cancel. Consequently if all matter were negative
it would behave in exactly the same way as that we observe.
Indeed it is impossible to say which dominates for our matter.
For creation to occur both kinds need to exist as a balanced
mixture of minute real particles to be called “primaries”.
These are the only true particles that really can exist.
Then it is also possible for the positive and negative primaries
to cancel each other to zero, so enabling an existing mixture
to annihilate itself to become nothingness. So what would
actually happen during the collision of opposites? They
would certainly all be in vigorous motion, like the molecules
of a gas, eternally colliding and bouncing off one another.
Opposed energy dynamics gave the answer. Another law of
mechanics called the “conservation of momentum”
had also to be satisfied. The momentum of an object is defined
as its mass multiplied by its velocity. The sum of the momentums
of all objects colliding has to be the same after the collision
as it was before, as measured in any specified direction.
Instead of annihilating this condition forced both colliding
primaries to gain energy of their own kind in balanced amounts.
They were breeding like opposite sexes! A detailed computational
study taking collision probabilities into account showed
that the average energy gain would be 0.091 of incident
kinetic energy if the average speed were 99% of the speed
of light. The proportion rose to 0.199 as speed fell to
10% of light speed. Of course the incident kinetic energy
rises rapidly as speed increases.
In consequence the i-ther would form a rapidly growing ball
but its density would also increase until an unstable condition
was reached. And this solved the problem of the CC!
The entire flow field now broke up into minute cells divided
by watershed-like boundaries, possibly forming a regular
pattern like a honeycomb. Inside each cell, flows converged
to a central point and here conditions, again governed by
the need to conserve momentum, favoured mutual annihilation.
In the outer annulii of each cell a gas-like fluid existed
forming a breeding blanket and nearly all this creation
was cancelled out at the central focal points. A minute
net creation remained causing a slow growth, over aeons
of time, to the vast size of the universe we see today -except
for one thing: matter did not yet exist. The i-ther is only
the source of matter. However, when matter eventually appeared
it would go with the flow. And the flow predicted was one
of accelerating expansion. Every part would be moving away
from every other with both speeds and accelerations proportional
to separating distance. This was predicted in 1992 and in
1998, as reported by Schwarzchild, B (10), astronomers discovered
that, contrary to their expectations, the expansion was
indeed accelerating. So Survival Physics has made an important
prediction later confirmed by observation.
A SUB-QUANTUM CONSCIOUSNESS EVOLVES
There could be almost spherical centres of annihilation
(hubs) or long filamentous shapes (links) all of finite
diameter and consisting of primaries in the act of mutual
destruction. Hubs and links, however, would themselves form
permanent structures. Many links could couple to a single
hub as one of an infinite variety of geometries that could
form by chance.
This structure formed a source of power that could only
manifest as waves: so explaining why the quantum level has
to operate on wave mechanics. The waves need intelligent
organisation, however, but arrangements of hubs and links
could be imagined that looked very like the artificial neural
networks that scientists, such as Hinton(3) have shown to
have memory and learning capability. The speculative part
of the emerging theory had to assume that in the fullness
of time a neural network would evolve and that further evolution
would lead to the emergence of the conscious intelligence
needed for wave organisation.
This meant that at least the sub-conscious mind had to exist
as an i-theric structure. It would need to contrive matter
by the clever organisation of real quantum waves. A sub
atomic particle would be formed by the repeated focusing
of waves at points chosen at random but confined to regions
of constructive wave interference patterns. In this way
a satisfying interpretation for the enigma of wave-particle-duality
emerged. A particle, such as an electron, would no longer
be regarded as a single object travelling along the curved
paths caused by the action of electric and magnetic forces.
Instead electrons would be sequences of wave focusing events
joined end to end in time but not in position. These positions
would be chosen mathematically so that, as observed by scientists,
electrons would only now appear to be acted upon by a real
force of electromagnetism. The other three forces of nature
could be similarly interpreted. Hence our universe now appears
as a semi-virtual reality. It is built from real energies
but these are intelligently organised.
Each i-theric mind would have to be separated from the universal
sub-conscious by some form of information filter-barrier
programmed into the i-ther, so that it could interact with
other minds in meaningful ways. This could explain why at
least one matter system had to be organised to provide a
temporary housing in which such interaction could occur.
Then on the demise of that housing another based on different
laws of physics was provided so that development of individual
minds could continue. The i-ther could build several interpenetrating
universes all occupying the same space but tuned to different
quantum wave frequencies. Then the i-theric mind could tune
into just one at a time. If the brain has its own consciousness
then a copy is carried in the i-ther.
In this way a theory emerged, that had survival as its core
feature. It had appeared from the simultaneous solution
of the three major difficulties of physics. With this model
the entire spectrum of the so-called “paranormal”
can be given an explanation as potentially real effects
including mediumshiop, telepathy, psychokinesis, healing,
apports, OOB’s, NDE’s and prediction.
