Are you saying that Einstein didn't invent a Jargon that classical physicists

Where's the contradiction?   Just saying it makes no sense. I was speaking of 
the zero-point prior to the big bang at the singularity which replicates 
itself in the center of every coenergetic field down to the center of the fields 
composing each physical particle.   That center (without its encircling 
spinergy or angular momentum) cannot be considered a "particle" -- since it is 
totally empty of all attributes.   

If you don't understand that, say so, and point out what I'm being 
contradictory of (whether something I said or a rule of science which is not applicable 
to my theory) and why you think so, instead of making a flat out denial.   

The ABC Theory is proposing a new model of reality, a new paradigm, so to 
speak -- in order to explain the connection between consciousness and matter 
that, admittedly, is in direct contradiction of material science and its 
"particle" theories -- which may explain the dynamics of the metric or physical world 
-- but which has no value in explaining subjective consciousness and how it 
links to objective matter.   Nor will they ever have.   ABC's fractally involved 
coenergetic fields that are coadunate but not consubstantial and exist in the 
Planck space are beyond the mathematics and dynamics of conventional particle 
physics. The only physics that might come close to explaining all this is the 
metaphysics of string and QFT in conjunction with the holographic paradigm and 
implicate-explicate order theories of Bohm and Pribram.

Really?   If I take a ball and rotate it in either direction, clockwise or 
counter clockwise on any of its spherical or great circle's axes -- how many 
such axes can YOU count?   Well, the spinergy surrounding a zero-point spinning 
in all angular directions simultaneously is equivalent to that ball -- if we 
could hang it by all its axes and manage to spin it around all of them 
simultaneously.   Have you forgotten your solid geometry?

And, now, you are really stretching at straws, based on your total lack of 
imaginative understanding of metaphysical principles.   I never said the ABC 
theory could explain the formation of ice. 

I was referring solely to the symmetry breaking of the initial coenergetic 
fields of the Cosmos, after their radiation from the spinergy of the 
singularity, their involution down to the physical plane, and inflation during and after 
the big bang.   What has that got to do with the physical process of ice 
formation (which could only occur on the physical plane considered by quantum 
physics) when water didn't even exist when cosmic symmetry was broken? 

To bring in the ice analogy, which I already explained was not appropriate 
with respect to its change of information on a material level is mixing apples 
with oranges.

Now, we're really getting down to brass tacks -- when you have shout and 
stoop to ad hominem arguments that are simply blowing in the wind.   If you know 
so much physics that can disprove the ABC theory, or can find a better 
explanation of consciousness and its linkages to matter, let's hear it.   However, why 
waste time -- since it's obvious you can't follow my logical explanation that 
draws a multidimensional metaphysical and geometric and topological picture 
of fields within fields within fields, that take some imagination to see and 
follow it's Mobius-like twists and turns and its coenergetic transitions.    

If the photon particle wasn't also a spinning wave that is the front of a 
radiating field, then what is it?   How do you account for the double slit 
anomaly that breaks down when it is observed without resorting to the quantum 
indeterminacy cop out?   Or, how do you explain the ability of a Polaroid material 
to polarize that light beam if the entire photon wasn't spinning and had the 
form of a triune field generated from a zero-point?
see symbolic diagram of spinning field (and imaginatively extrapolate it down 
to a single triune field front) at:

That's an argument?   Where's your reasoning?   Did you ever read my 
explanation of how the visual system works?   If not, how can you judge it?   Maybe 
you should ask me to explain it if you have any interest in shooting it down 
using reason and logic and any science you know that explains it better.

It's amazing how you continue to point out how you haven't really understood 
anything I have been talking about -- that no one else seems to have any 
trouble understanding -- even if they don't agree with it, and never fail to say 

As for the Ancient Masters, when, if ever, did I claim they knew anything 
about spin or fields, or that they had taught me anything about the zero-point 
spinergy?   But they did talk of "Laya points," "abstract motion," "primal 
origin" from such points, "fields of consciousness" (which they called "planes" or 
"realms"), etc.   I just used my intuition and reasoning to put those 
teachings together with the scientific fundamentals like spin, waves, fields, and 
particles, compared them with the ancient diagrams and glyphs symbolizing 
cosmogenesis, along with the numerical field formulas in the ancient Book of Dzyan, 
the sciences of holography and fractal geometry, the mathematics and conclusions 
of string and M-brane theories, as well as the "three fundamental 
principles," as taught by the ancient masters (all of it outlined, explained and 
referenced in Blavatsky's Secret doctrine, BTW) -- and constructed a theory that would 
link them all together in a metaphysical cosmogenesis that links with and is 
consistent with modern physics and its well proven laws, and that would 
explain all the missing links, anomalies and paradoxes of conventional material 
science -- while reasonably answering all the hard problems of consciousness and 
qualia, brain mind binding, etc.

But, what has all this nit picking about existence of non existence have to 
do with discussion or comments about the nitty gritty of ABC theory and its 
So is my ABC theory "metaphysics."   Does that make it wrong?   Do you know 
where consciousness exists?   When did I say consciousness is defined by the 
fields or their modifications it experiences?   And haven't you read a number of 
time in my writings that "consciousness" is defined as "awareness" and 
"will"?   When Hameroff read that in one of my letters to Psyche-D, he agreed with 
me, and then went about like a real scientist to try to logically point out the 
flaws he perceived in my theory -- without negating any of its metaphysics.   
He even admitted that he thought consciousness as so defined was beyond the 
explanation capability of quantum physics -- which is only concerned with the 
brain's physical mechanisms.   So, how many times do I have to repeat it before 
you understand what I am talking about.   

So, if they are not scientific, it's only because they can't be falsified by 
scientifically objective means.   But, that doesn't automatically make them 
wrong.   Why can't they be confirmed by direct subjective experience?   Or, have 
scientists forgotten how to observe their own inner experience with an 
objective mind?   Besides, consciousness is not in the fields but in the zero-point 
of absolute space at their centers of origination -- whose SPINERGY is the 
mother of those "FIELDS OF CONSCIOUSNESS" -- which are "coadunate but not 
consubstantial" (that I hope you look up in the dictionary and find out what it 
means) and the basis of all forms of matter or substance -- from the first 
coenergetic and metaphysical field in hyperspace down to the physical fields of metric 

So, when did I state that my field theory wasn't pure metaphysics (and only 
coupled with physics at their lowest energetic level or phase or order)?   The 
whole idea of the ABC theory is to link that metaphysics with physics -- which 
I see you haven't the faintest idea how to do it, although string theory and 
QFT is getting close -- but still not close enough... Since, they've left out 
consciousness (1) as an a-priori, independent yet phenomenally integrated with 
matter, entity in itself, and (2) as a "function" of the absolute zero-point 
(which can't be measured since it is NOT a "property" nor an epiphenomena of 
anything).   Mysterious?   Yes, but so is relativity and QM to those who don't 
understand their inherent logic (that you ascribe to their mathematics, but 
which still doesn't tell us anything about the true nature of reality).

I said it was a theory.   In my mind, I have a perfect justification to think 
it is true -- since I can't find a better scientific theory to deny it.   

All I know is that the ABC model satisfactorily solves all the problems of 
consciousness and mind that science can't get a handle on.   And, shouldn't the 
wholeness of the Universe include BOTH consciousness and matter?   Eliminating 
consciousness from their equations they (scientists) have only half a theory 
to explain the nature of ALL reality -- which must include the objective as 
well as the subjective aspects of its existence.   

How could there be consciousness without matter or matter without 
consciousness -- starting right at the singularity prior to the big bang?   

The whole essence of the ABC theory is that fundamental reality. Therefore, 
consciousness, requiring stasis must be at the zero-point, and matter, 
requiring motion, must be rooted in the spinergy surrounding it.   That's the "whole" 
of both the "singularity" or laya point and the entire metaphysical (and 
physical) universe that springs out of it.   

If physical science can show me that that is not true, I would be happy to 
accept it's view in lieu of my metaphysical view of reality.   But, I'm afraid 
that the Hindu's, Buddhists, Taoists and Theosophists are right when they say 
that the physical Universe with its constant changes due to entropy and other 
conscious causes, is "nothing but an illusion of unchanging consciousness"... 
That I conclude, therefore, must be the inherent function of the zero-point

Nothing but perturbations as well as energy fields as proven by the Casimir 
effect.   What is that, if not SOMETHING?   You are still stretching at straws 
to fault my theory, for which you still, apparently, have no understanding of 
its inherent logic.   It's like the classical physicists who first heard 
Einstein's theory of relativity and said he made it up out of nothing.   

As for the Planck space, isn't that where superstring theory postulates (with 
their mathematics to back it up) their "hyperspace" dimensions are enfolded 
in a Calabi-Yau manifold within the Plank vacuum?   Of, course, you are 
justified in saying that such theories are still unfalsifiable.   But, ABC theory 
doesn't depend on them.  However if such multidimensional hyperspace theories 
could be proven, it would certainly verify part of the ABC theory that speaks of 
similarly enfolded fields.   The only difference being that ABC theory speaks 
of the dynamic connection of those fields to consciousness, while string 
theories -- which are still totally materialistic (or substantialistic, since their 
hyperspace fields must still be energetic :) -- don't.

Any real scientist would ask me what I meant by that statement before judging

It's you that has to stop e-mailing me -- since you started these personal 
diatribes, and have not only shown your lack of scientific openness and 
consideration (especially when I've publicly asked scientists who understand my theory 
to help with the mathematics) -- but have become downright abusive to the 
point of using foul language.   And you call yourself a supposedly unbiased 
scientist with a Ph.D. in physics.   Who are you kidding?   

What are you afraid of?   Is it that my ABC concept, if proven true (which 
right now is just a carefully considered logical deduction from fundamental 
principles linked with [so far] proven scientific theories underlying the standard 
model) might upset your beloved material science that you might have also 
shoehorned into your philosophy so as to justify whatever religious beliefs you 
might have?   

Well, I'm not and have never been an eliminative or scientific materialist or 
subscribed to any particular religion. (Neither have I ever been a member of 
any theosophical organization BTW) And, as for being a scientist, I have 
always been a philosophical scientist/engineer and overall generalist -- with no 
philosophical or scientific biases whatsoever, and willing to give anyone's 
ideas an even break, along with careful questioning, analysis and synthesis before 
I make a considered judgment.   Can you say the same?   

Besides, isn't my geometric and topological analysis based on fundamental 
propositions enough for a mathematical interpretation?   Did Einstein have any 
mathematics when he intuited (as Feynman pointed out) relativity and E=mc^2?   
Didn't he then have to devise a new tensor mathematics to prove it after he 
went to collage at least four more years to learn advanced mathematics and obtain 
his physics credentials?   Well, I don't have any time left for that -- since 
I didn't intuit ABC until I was well into my 60's, after studying the Secret 
Doctrine for a number of years and learning its occult metaphysics.   Einstein 
did all that before he was out of his teens -- as I and others have verified. 

So, come down off your high horse, and start judging your own mind's problems 
and heal it before making judgments about others, while denigrating them and 
their ideas with your uncontrolled emotional outbursts -- which has no place 
in an intellectual or scientific discussion. 
I'm crying for your angst.   But I never said that the "singularity" I speak 
of (the primal zero-point and its spinergy) that started this whole universe 
(that your physics and its mathematics justifies, but still doesn't understand) 
is NOTHING.   How could such a complex universal reality, containing both 
consciousness and matter, rise up out of nothing?   The real problem is; You have 
nothing in your imagination or your wisdom and knowledge that can wrap itself 
around the abstractions necessary to support either consciousness or matter 
(in its fundamental essence) and bring them both together in a logically and 
mathematically (geometrical and topological) as well as pictorially consistent 
theoretical scientific metaphysics (to be later coupled with physics)... 
Whether being able to be falsified or not by objective means (which must remain 
impossible unless science includes repeated subjective evidence in such means).   

As for predictions... The ABC model predicts everything that science 
predicts, including the big bang and ALL that came after it, including the anomalous 
and little understood mechanisms of sensory perception, thinking, recollection, 
psychic phenomena, etc.   As for science's reductive studies and 
verifications of the material universe's physical properties with their endless quest to 
understand the general by picking at its particulars...   As a logical as well 
as imaginative thinker, I have no need of any of that to satisfy me that my 
model is substantially correct and solves all the hard problems of consciousness 
and its linkages to matter... Although, I am still open to another model that 
can also accomplish that with whatever other means are possible.      

Best wishes, that you might wake up someday and show a little unbiased and 
unemotional good sense, reason, and theosophical brotherhood (since you 
professed to be one).
