Mass communication has progressed through four major transformations. The first revolution separated the author from his audience by means of writing; the LITERATI became a secret society of COGNOSCENTI that used its exclusive knowledge to dominate the ignorant masses. Modern democracy began when movable type made it possible for a message to be received by everyone who could read. Recently, radio broadcasting countered the first and second revolutions by delivering messages to everyone who can't read; television is likely to be the MATADOR of democracy. The capital cost of printing plants and broadcasting studios limits the messengers to parties of power and wealth, whose messages are determined to maintain the STATUS QUO --- natcherly --- especially their own status plus all the more quid they can quo. The tragic consequence of mass communications has been the dissemination of tendencious knowledge to enslave the minds of mankind, rather than free us to experience our own ignorance until we learn better. A truly free press for truly free minds could not exist until the personal home photocopier brought publishing within the economic capacity of every person with a message and postage. As well as reducing the cost of copying to a few pennies per kilowatt hour, the computer completes the revolution of mass communications by restoring audience feedback. As camels and soups show, quality goes down as participation increases, but participation is better for the participators; eventually, participators support higher standards. Since authors began to write, instead of speaking directly to their audience, ideas have flowed in one direction, only. It is, however, as impossible to teach without learning as it is to learn without teaching, which is why so little is learned from reading books. For the first time since the advent of writing, the computer makes it possible for readers to contribute to the discourse and transform a lecture into a dialogue, a conversation, a seminar, a workshop, a global town meeting. Finding a publisher for my first book, "How To Build A Flying Saucer", took nearly ten years; nearly ten more years passed while my market grew to critical mass by word of mouth. Now people are reading my first book as if the ideas were as hot as tomorrow's news, but a whole generation has grown up to drinking age --- and another generation has died of cirrhotic livers --- since I was working out those early insights. My ideas develop so rapidly that I had to rewrite the manuscript every year until it was published. Once printed, however, the printing plates are as immutable as graven stone. As soon as I began to write my personal correspondence on computer, I realized that this electronic medium keeps discoveries alive and growing through pooling contributions in ways not feasible by any other means of communication. The entire industry is builtby fielding half- baked ideas and then improving them with consumer feedback, as it goes along; no other industry advances so fast, and in no other industry do the suppliers lag behind the advances made by their own demanders. And thus it came to pass as I was speaking to the Global Sciences Congress, held at Denver in August, l987, that the idea came to me to offer my audience my current manuscripts explaining HYPERSPACE to everyone who would participate by also sharing their ideas on computer discs. Ideally, a book of this nature should be transmitted over wires to be downloaded by Special Interest Groups on international networks. In the present state of the art, however, computers still cannot replace paper. This unrealistically jealous industry has not yet made files universally readable, like sound and film tapes, and it is still impractical to transmit text formats and illustrations through wires. Even after the computer industry gets its parameters together, all of us early worms will remain stuck with our capital investments. Therefore, I have decided to print my manuscripts onto discs for postal distribution to the computers being used now. This enterprise will succeed only if each reader will make at least two copies and pass them on. Some readers may not know three other people with compatible computers, so it is hoped that readers with the most popular computer models will pass on to their computing friends as many copies as they feel this publication is worth. If anyone can make conversions to unpopular computers, a copy returned to me will be passed on to other readers out in left field. This brings us to the matter of copyrights. Most people believe that anyone may freely copy published material in any numbers for any purpose as long as the copies are not sold for a profit (*1). If legal process were not so expensive, a lot of copycats would learn how very mistaken they are. Copyright entitles the author to assign legal permission to make copies and set the conditions of contract. Although I am assigning all my readers the right to make copies and distribute this literature freely, the formal copyright remains mine. Any party enterprising enough to reproduce these discs by the hundred for sale at a profit will very likely interest my attorney to offer a royalty contract as a more attractive alternative to a court ordered remedy. Any party that fails to include my byline and copyright notice will be taken to task for the more serious offense of plagiarism. Heckling is a part of all public speaking, and most of the fun. If hecklers had a fair chance to give their opinions, many of them would have more to say than the speakers, and some may have better ideas. The only way a reader can add his two bits worth to a discourse is by scribbling in the margins of public library books. Anything that can be done will be done, so hecklers will always be with us, and so will graffiti, along with carefully considered letters to editors. Since it is so easy to add and subtract opinions to a magnetic publication, a lot of opinionated readers are going to do it. The main purpose of this venture is to turn audience feedback into an advantage --- for everyone --- by encouraging constructive criticism guided by rules for fair comment within the laws governing copyright and public utterance. By the nature of this medium, this publication is going to be shared by an unknown number of readers. Those who want to give us the benefit of their superior information are asked to follow these rules. On those matters that readers can wait for, please append your comments to the end of the file. If you feel that your information needs to be interjected, then mark the beginning and end of your contribution with lines or stars.Please include your name and the date so that we know whom to credit. If you find mistakes of fact, your immediate correction is eagerly asked for. Critics looking for an argument improve their chances by including their addresses. If you are so offended by some statements that you are compelled to make deletions, please mark your censorship with a notice of the amount of text you deleted, in numbers of lines or bytes, and include your name and date to prove the courage of your convictions. Anyone who wants to retain his copyright on contributions is advised to include notice of their legal claim so that no one will assume that all commentaries and contributions are in the public domain. Expect disputes; democracy is not for weak stomachs and faint hearts. Depending on the number of readers who distribute more copies, and the number of contributions added --- not to mention subtracted --- my original text will be unrecognizable by the time this print passes through a dozen recopies. There is no way to know whether all contributors have marked the changes they make. Neither is there any way to know whether they have their facts correct, unless they cite their sources for reference. Furthermore, these discs are communicated person-to-person through private, first- class mail, making the message into a conversation between acquaintances rather than a publication to strangers; it is permissible to say things in private and personal mail that is regarded as unethical, if not illegal, in public utterance. Therefore, all readers must always remember and bear in mind that the copy they are reading is a BOUILLABAISSE stirred by many cooks, not a FILET MIGNON SAUTEED by a chef. Unless you receive a copy that you can certify as unaltered from the original, do not believe anything that offends your common sense and don't hold the original author or signed contributors responsible for statements and/or context that may have been altered by hecklers who prefer to remain anonymous (*2). My own editors have altered my manuscripts until I could hardly recognize my publications as my own compositions --- usually for the better. If some party suffers personal injury from this special interest group disc, everyone who receives it becomes suspect. This is an utterly novel kind of case for the courts to rule on, not quite so much privileged privacy as a closed computer conference but still a one-on-one private correspondence. I dare say that honest mistakes will be excused with a pointed finger, but deliberate malice producing suffering to an identifiable person, when proven unjustified in these litiginous times, will be liable to legal penalties. We may protect ourselves from slanderous or obscene remarks by scanning each disc immediately before mailing, to check that no one else has run the copy and added comments disgraceful to polite company. I have enough discoveries in my head to keep me writing full time for ten years --- I should live so long. In the likelihood that my insurance is vastly underrated, I am curtailing my research and graphic design in order to put as much of my time as I can into getting my ideas written. Unfortunately, the charter members of this publishing revolution will receive bare bones of text, a dearth shared by everyone who buys Version 1.0 of any program. The economy of electronic publication, however, enables me to update my text whenever I get a break, add animated illustrations in colour, and enliven the text with creative layouts in future editions. Most important of all, as copies eventually find their way back to me with accumulated reader input, new editions can be issued with the latest and most extensive information --- better than anything I can do. This publication can be considered as a book written by its best qualified readers. In order to receive updates and new books, all readers will have to send me their names and addresses, regardless whence they received their copies. Please bear in mind that my resources are exceedingly limited, and expect to wait like a Christian for me to follow up in my spare time. I expect this enterprise to be taken over by more resourceful enthusiasts. The definitive version of this disc book will be written on an APPLE IIc, in ASCII files; the animated illustrations will be rendered with DAZZLE DRAW and FANTAVISION --- if I can't find more practical graphics programs. I invested in the APPLE system because I believed all the press reports that the computer field has more APPLE trees planted than anything else. I am deceived; MS-DOS is the most widely used operating system on this scene. This original version, however, is written on a KAYPRO II operated by CP/M 2.2 in WORDSTAR 3.3. files. It will take me time to convert WORDSTAR files to ASCII, and then convert both to MS-DOS. The few graphics included on this disc are drawn with keyboard characters. Since the ASCII code is standardized only for alphanumeric characters, computers using different keyboard codes will produce surprising characters --- the trouble is not in the disk or your computer. As long as computers remain inconvenient to read in bed or on public transportation, I shall concurrently try to find publishers for paper versions of my disc books. These discs hold the beginning of a 75,000 word paper book, heavily illustrated with animated illustrations included on disc, under the title TIME TRAVEL --- The Secret Science of The UFOs. Availing myself of the impermanent and quasiconversational nature of magnetic correspondence, I have included many speculations and tangents on these disks to stimulate response; these unessential essays will be deleted from the paper version. The heaviest reading is the Second Chapter; once you establish the theoretical foundation laid in my repetitive manner of logic, the rest of the book is freeway, much like the First Chapter. For the first time, the theory and engineering of time travel are explained in sufficient practical detail for young physicists to begin constructing their own Philadelphia Experiments in their home workshops; at least one researcher I know is doing it already, in California. Let me know whether you are willing to buy TIME TRAVEL --- The Secret Science of The UFOs at a prepublication price of $10 or a postpublication price of $16. Send no money. I only want to know whether there is a market for a paper book before I invest more than I can afford to print it. I apologize for my inability to acknowlege subscribers to this paper book by individual letters, as they are received; at a dollar a letter, the cost of mailing is prohibitive. Subscribers will be notified individually to write their cheques when the response is sufficient to underwrite publication. In the meantime, enquiries from royalty publishers are welcome. Zees is a bootstrap production, Dollink --- my apologies to Zsa Zsa. END OF FORWARD *1 This is the belief taken by the Government of the United States, especially its Public Broadcasting System. Assuredly, what the lord hath given us starving authors with one hand, he taketh away by truckloads driven by the other. With legal protection like we got, we are better off with our pirates. Unless you are a government authorized freebooter, however, the first hand lays down the law. Readers who copy programs published in magazines are subject to the same legal strictures. The magazine publishers do not assign its readers the right to make copies of their text to give to their friends, much less sell. ---------------------------------------------------------- *2 The most heavily edited and censored book in the world is the Holy Bible, yet its readers are convinced every copy is the original and every last Word of God. Evidently, God has afterthoughts --- The New Testament. The Holy Koran is an even later Word of the very same God compiled from the very same orginal Scriptures. And don't forget the equally Holy Book of Mormon. I can relate to Him; I am also compelled to rewrite my original words innumerable times as I get my act together. I believe the Bible; it is the publishers I question. I have no doubt that God inspires all His chosen publishers, but I wonder whether He chose every publisher; after all, the Bible is in public domain. If God inspired the American Constitution, in which I believe more than the Bible, He is the Source of the First Amendment --- entitling Larry Flint to turn a dollar in the pre-eminently profitable religious market. It isn't belief in the Bible that fomented the most vicious wars, but belief in the infallible veracity of the publishers. An INTRODUCTION to ******************* HYPERSPACE ********************* in Your Everyday Life WHERE IS HYPERSPACE? ------ and ------ HOW DO WE GET THERE FROM HERE? ----------------------------- THE Ancients imagined a timeless space beyond human comprehension that they called Heaven, Hades, Valhalla, Gehenna, Limbo, Elysian Fields, Happy Hunting Grounds, each in his own language. The mysterious supernal and infernal regions were populated with gods and goddesses, devils and demons, angels and fairies, ghosts and goblins, chimerae of every conception. On an Olympian stage, the immortal spirits acted out the universal human drama in myths teaching the meanings of life and death, good and evil, morality and nemesis, until the advent of modern science brought discredit to intangible realities. Man does not live without myth. As the traditional morality plays lose their power to rule men's minds, lively new myths are composed to replace the dead. If the modern priests of science refuse to address the problems of the human soul, the modern poets of science-fiction will use the ken and cant of science to answer spiritual needs for intangible ideals. Mentor and Merlin are reincarnated as Obi Wan Kenobi and Yoda; as the last of the Jedi Knights of a Round Table on some planetary Camelot, Luke Skywalker draws a laser Excalibur from the Stone to wield The Force on a cosmic odyssey. After running for centuries at Olympus, followed by a century of full houses at Dodge City, the spiritual epics are now playing in hyperspace. Hyperspace is known to science only as a calculation of pure, abstract mathematics. Physicists are unaware that they are actually charting the tangible landmarks of hyperspace while they plot the PSI factors defining the virtual state of the quantum field. Like Moliere's BOURGEOIS GENTILHOMME, everyone lives in The Twilight Zone without knowing it. After reading this book, you will be able to recognize the landscape of hyperspace in your everyday life. The immortal spirits are very real entities, and God is alive and well on the street where you live. __________________________ I I I Creatures that drift I I in the depths of the sea I I are the very last I I to discover the water. I I__________________________I THIS thesis has grown over twenty-five years since I noticed that the ceremonial KATAS of the ZEN martial arts express the very same energy equations that physicists write in mathematical notation. Once I discovered this key, I realized that all forms of art are mathematical equations expressing transformations of energy more subtle than brute strength. Works of art are a special kind of physical machinery that projects higher-dimensional structures into lower-dimensional spaces for some convenience of perceiving. You can see the way art performs this function by applying the rules of optical perspective to represent a three- dimensional structure on a plane surface. The most familiar kind of pictorial perspective presents the appearance of its subject from but a single viewpoint. In order to comprehend a solid structure in its entirety, it is necessary to render it from as many aspects as are required to reveal all of its structural details in their correct relationships to each other; many tridimensional perspectives must be studied in order to construct a conception of a hyperspacial entity. The art of mathematics presents alternative aspects in the form of tautological equations, each expressing the view from a different frame of reference, such as a=lw, l=a/w, and w=a/l to describe the two-dimensional structure of a square by one-dimensional semantics. All the codices of mathematical equations express different views of the single hyperspacial entity known as the universe; our comprehension of the universal structure is far from complete. Artists have a vocation to express their perceptions of hyperspacial realities from every point of view that man can reach, at every different time that man can live in, to provide us with handles on universal truths. All the myths and all the religions present us with different pictures of the same hyperspacial entity, and that entity is ourselves. ========================================================== Most lovers of literature know that "Gulliver's Travels is a satire on the politics of Jonathan Swift's time and place but did you realize that "Alice In Wonderland" and "Through The Looking Glass" are cryptic explorations of hyperspace? Alice's adventures are a comic dramatization of the very same protean confusions, instabilities, fantasies, whimsies, cruelties, and self-contradictions of the virtual state of the quantum field that you are about to tour by way of a more mathematical direction. Lewis Carroll is the pen name of the Reverend Charles Dodgson, a mathematician more competent than he dared to reveal to his contemporaries, so he became better known under his real name for making sensitive photographs of pretty little girls all bare naked with no clothes on. ___________________________________ I I I Scientists and artists I I are both mystics I I competing in the myth business. I I I I The differences between them I I are mainly a matter I I of professional jargon. I I___________________________________I YOU are able to perceive voluminous space only because your mind fuses the two different perspectives received by your two eyes. *1 From one point of view, your inner eye sees merely plane images. In order to perceive solid structures in voluminous space, you must move around the subject under observation and fuse an indefinite number of aspects from all sides. A cone, for illustration, is seen as a circle in plan view, a triangle in elevation, and various angles subtended by various arcs in all other views. The solid structure of a cone is conceived only after fusing all images in the mind. If your mind were not able to construct this gestalt, you would be unable to recognize the triangular aspect of the cone as having the same identity as the circular aspect. The ability to fuse an indefinite number of plane images into a solid image in the mind is usually achieved during childhood as we master language, so no one is aware of common aberrations. As an example, few people saw the view from the top until everyone travelled by air. Without flight experience, you don't learn to fuse plan views of the landscape with the familiar elevations; therefore, aerial photographs remain unintelligible to most people. You would be surprised by the number of people who cannot read blueprints because of their inability to fuse all sectional drawings into a dynamic tridimensional gestalt. Cubism is four-dimensional perspective; the art of Cubism makes no sense to people who cannot analyze plural perspectives and recombine them mentally to form a hyperspacial image of the pictorial subject. Since George Eastman provided everyone with a camera, we find that most snapshots, like driver's IDs, can't be recognized by the subject's mother. How is it possible for the camera (that cannot lie) to produce unrecognizable portraits? From the infinite number of views you see of your nearest and dearest, only a certain number are selected for fusion into the mental image of the person you identify. The zillions of other views are occulted from the visual consciousness because they are insignificant or because the differences are great enough to produce the painful condition of cognitive dissonance that prevents fusion of disparate ideas. Cognitive dissonance is produced by harmonic discord among the vibrations defining ideas, images, and sounds. All differences produce cognitive dissonance until discordant phases are cancelled and the remaining vibrations are resolved into a harmonically integrated gestalt in a higher dimension, like a musical chord. Wave cancellation is the physical basis of the concept of psychological repression established by Freud; these wave mechanics also produce KARMA. (*2) Interference between (mental) waves transforms them into other frequencies so that objects are not perceived as they really are, if they are not rendered altogether invisible as a consequence of cognitive dissonance. Therefore, each person sees and hears truly only those signals that are congruent with the conceptual patterns already defining one's own mental structure; all other perceptions are distorted and repressed, occulted behind the Veils of Maja. (SIDE-2) At the bottom line, intereference produces a pair of predominant patterns separated by 180o of phase. As a result, reality is perceived to be polarized between good and evil, black and white, strong and weak, male and female, etc. Just as only one side of a solid structure can be seen at a time, without a mirror, only one phase of a hyperspacial structure can be perceived directly at one time. It is natural, therefore, to assign a unique identity to different phases that exceed the observer's capacity for resolution into a single gestalt. Virtue is not recognized as the front of vice, no light is seen in darkness, and you have to know your TAO to find strength in compliance. Union of complementary opposites transforms them both into a structure of higher dimension. The degree to which you can resolve polar opposites establishes the dimensional scope of your Consciousness. An understanding of hyperspace enables you to answer problems that defy all philosophers limited to three-dimensional concepts; given sufficient scope, you will even understand the opposite sex. (*3) ========================================================= Assigning different identities to different aspects of the same structure is most commonly experienced in interpersonal relationships. During the initial rush of love, all perceptions that trouble the purity of the relationship is repressed. Admonitions from friends and family to watch where you are giving your heart are ignored as utterly irrelevant to the paragon identified with all the virtues of true love, and none of the vices. When dissonant aspects of the loved one appear from behind the Veils of Maja, they are perceived to belong to another person, a stranger in your home and a devil in your bed. Unable to conceive that pleasure and pain can come from the same parent, infants perceive a good true-parent and a wicked step-parent. Most people still cannot identify God with the devil, nor can they perceive that Heaven and hell are complementary aspects of one real world. ======================================================= The Latin mind has no imprinted concept of the English SCHWA sound. Without the mental concept, the Latin ear cannot distinguish between his and hees. The sound of big activates the concept of beeg, and beeg is what the Latin mind hears. Likewise, the Japanese mind has no imprint for the ell sound; in the Japanese mind, the elle sound is heard as arr. Male and female mentalities are imprinted with different concepts making it physically impossible for the opposite sex to receive the same message that is sent. Communication between sexes is like communication between different species. No matter how many times arguments are settled, the very next argument is the very same argument. Acquiescence is not agreement, but resignation and tolerance of the incomprehensible. ----------------------------------------------------------- *1 If your mind is unable to fuse plural images, the brain is confused, and all images but one are erased from your visual Consciousness. The eye transmitting the voided image loses its functional capacity. It may be speculated that other sense organs also lose their function when their information is voided. ----------------------------------------------------------- *2 If Freud studied physics before medicine, he wouldn't have invented a square wheel in his theory of sexual determinism. Psychology and psychiatry would be radically different if a grounding in elementary physics were prerequisite. These professions will soon be demolished and reconstructed by the hard science of artificial intelligence. The soft sciences are not soft by their very nature, but because soft ideas attract people incapable of comprehending hard, mathematical concepts, and once soft- heads populate a profession, hard-heads move out of the neighbourhood. As a consequence, the soft sciences degenerate into nonsense until they become too impractical to hold their customers. If astrology were not so soft- headed, actuaries would be calculating horoscopes instead of statistics. The essential difference between the hard-head and the soft-head is concentration of mental focus. Whereas the hard-head defines particulars, the soft-head senses the overview. Both heads are half-wits if they cannot vary the scope of their focus to integrate particulars with wholes to comprehend both at once in a higher dimension of Consciousness. ----------------------------------------------------------- OOOOOOOOOOOOO\ The confusion produced by the O\ O \ Necker cube is due to seeing the O \OOOOOOOOOOOOO inside and the outside of a box O O O O at the same time. When seen as a O O O O plane image, a transparent cube O O O O presents a different structure OOOOOOOOOOOOO O from every point of view, and \ O \ O except when seen in a plan or \OOOOOOOOOOOOO elevation, no aspect resembles the shape of an opaque box. This is an object lesson in the difference between the structure of an entity in hyperspace and the form it presents in a lower dimensional space. Since God is an Entity of utmost dimensional extent, no man can look at a complete image of It in this lifetime --- and that is the reason for the religious prohibition against graven images. In order to preclude any manifestation of The God That Is All That Is from being worshipped as the One Big I, The First Commandment is engraved, "Thou shalt not hold any god before Me." Anything less than God is the very devil, and the devil grows more diabolical as it grows more Godly; the devil is the Brightest Angel of them all. The worship of anything less than God, no matter how Godly, is Satanism; the good people of this world are far more dangerous than the bad. You see, the only difference between bad people and good people is that bad people say that all wars are good, whereas good people say that some wars are good; both sides agree that no war is bad unless it is lost. As the child prays, "Dear God, please make all the bad people good and the good people nice." THE mind is able to fuse two visual images only when there is practically no difference between them. Fusion of visual images into a stereo gestalt becomes impossible if the two perspectives differ by more than the interocular distance. In other words, there is a limit to the amount of difference that can be resolved without producing an identity crisis. To illustrate, if your views of a cone were limited to the extremes of plan and elevation, only extraordinary conditions and mathematical calculation would enable you to realize that the two mutually incommensurable figures were aspects of the same identity in a higher dimension of space. Ordinarily, you are able to relate one extreme view to the other extreme by innumerable other viewing angles revealing the gradual transformation of the circle into the triangle. Even after identifying the circle as an allotropic aspect of the triangle, you would still be unable to form the concept of a solid cone unless your mental space were large enough to comprehend three dimensions; you would believe that the conical structure alternates between a circle and a triangle according to the viewing angle; it would be the wave- particle paradox all over again. On the atomic scale, hyperspacial rotations occur at such speed that transition phases between extreme views cannot be resolved within the temporal precision of the experiment. The wave-particle dichotomy is refractory to scientific comprehension not only because an electron flips between its two phases faster than the instruments can follow, but also because both wave packets and particles are three-dimensional concepts. Mentally unable to comprehend ultratridimensional entities, physicists identify different projections of one subatomic particle as several new discoveries, and that is why there is no end to the number of elementary particles. At least four dimensions of space are required to fuse several three-dimensional structures into a single identity in the same place at the same time. The most highly respected scientific authorities aver that it is impossible for any human intellect to visualize space extending in more than three dimensions. Nevertheless, your mind reveals the mathematical parameters of four-dimensional hyperspace every time you fuse more than one three-dimensional image into a gestalt. Look at that, would you; like the atom, the inner space of your mind is hyper! Hyperspace is as familiar to you as your own mental concepts. How 'bout that, Dr. Einstein? The science of physics is actually the physics of perception. Your mind is a house of many mansions. Most people never see the doors in the walls of their nurseries; they spend their entire spiritual lives confined in the crib where they were born, while they can only wonder about the sounds of family activity that transpire dimly into their windowless compartments. In these pages, you will read the construction plans of your spiritual palace. Once you realize that the barriers limiting your experience are merely partitions, you will open the doors of your mind to explore the manifold halls of self-knowledge. You may even leave your father's house to make your way as a grown person in the big hyperworld outside. Of course, it is dangerous out there, and not all who venture return sound and successful, but that is what real life is all about when play school is left behind. The physics of consciousness is what this book is all about. =========================================== The limits of identity provide a universally practical principle for getting what you want out of life -- especially if you have to get what you want out of other people. To wit, it is impossible to change anyone's mind except by nicely graduated argument that slowly turns the other's point of view to your direction; if you argue too strongly, you only provoke rage, denial, and repression of everything you say. The TAO teaches that the battle does not go to the strong, nor the race to the swift, but to the gentle and the patient; this is the true meaning of Jesus' promise that the meek will inherit the Earth. Beggars, flatterers, and cheaters take more than workers, racers, and robbers. ___________________________ I I I It is not in our stars I I that our troubles arise, I I my dear reader, I I but in our telescopes. I I___________________________I FUSING disparate images depends upon the development of a faculty for ignoring differences. The mind learns to ignore differences by subsuming them to a common feature, such as association of time, place, utility, or physical property. The subsumption of ideas into abstract classifications is produced by wave interference; and so, particular, individual differences are repressed to the Unconscious as the mind grows from perceptions limited to tangible sense data to comprehend abstract concepts. Plato wrote the original hyperspacial theory explaining that each of the material bodies in this world is a manifestation of an Ideal Form in Heaven. In modern mathematical terms, Plato can be paraphrased to say that each individual structure is a unique cross- section (or projection) of an entity existing in a space of more than three dimensions, intersecting with our tridimensional world. Plato conceived his concept of Universal Form by the mental process of verbal abstraction, and then with true philosophic backasswardness he declared that the particular is derived from the abstract, instead of the other way 'round; nevertheless, Plato is right. Since Plato explained that all individual differences are unique aspects of the ideal, and since wave interference is proven to be the physical mechanism that subsumes differences within the gestalt, the technical means for revealing a tangible manifestation of the Ideal Form is self-evident. By superimposing an indefinitely large number of individual images of the same class of tangible manifestations, the individual wave-forms arrange themselves according to the principle of the Conservation of Energy into a single, harmonically integrated structure. Photographers will recognize this process as the way to make a hologram. A hologram, therefore, is a tangible hyperspacial structure. How 'bout that, Dr. Gamow? A hologram looks like nothing so much as a compounded vortex. A compound vortex is what a hyperspacial entity looks like when it becomes manifest in its entirety as a tridimensional form. When Cecil B. DeMille represented the God of Moses as a vortex of light, he was revealing his Unconscious knowledge of the platonic Ideal. _____________________ I I I Beauty is the Beast I I_____________________I ============================================== Children notice microscopic differences; they inspect details minutely, and object to the slightest change in their environment --- especially food. Children lose their preternatural discrimination of tangible reality as they learn to speak, and everyone spends the rest of his life trying to find the original reality of the child, by way of sensory excitement, philosophizing, religious disciplines, and chemical keys to the Kingdom. Childish minds that grow big without growing up make a profession of details without being able to realize their meaning in a universal gestalt; they are favoured to become scholars and authorities. Swelled heads are illustrated by the learned philosophers who argued about Adam's navel while remaining incapable of questioning Adam's rib. But however narrow their perspective, scholars are broadminded enough to realize that it does not profiteth a man in this life to gain the whole world in one vision. The joys of youth, and its bellicosity, are the intense excitement produced by the perception of differences. Conversely, most of the normal depression which grows with age is the result of losing discrimination so that nothing new is perceived under the Sun. The conventional wisdom believes that the senses atrophy along with the thymus gland, the gonads, and the digestive organs, to produce ennui from lack of excitement. Actually, the sense organs atrophy as interest in differences is lost because of terminal classificationosis. Your tour of duty on this planet is done when you no longer find any difference between one day and the next, one season and the next, one person and another, one sex and the other. VIVE LES DIFFERENCES! ========================================= Christ is the God of Man, variously called The Son of God and The Son of Man. The epithets of Christ mean that He is the platonic Ideal of the human species, and each of us is a unique manifestation of this Universal Ideal Human Being. A special kind of holographic portrait of the Christ can be produced by superimposing an indefinite number of life-size photographs of people. This technical photography has actually been done. In this process, the superimposed waves do not produce a vortex; instead, the wave interference pattern is manifest like the superimposition of musical notes to produce a predominant key tone. The image resulting from this extraordinary holographic process reveals an ineffably beautiful human body of exquisitely perfect proportions. Christ is quite simply the One Perfect Human Being from Whom all mortals are imperfectly projected. Individuals possessing features approximating the human average manifest some of Christ's Divine Beauty, and that is why all us mortals who deviate from the average are moved to adore these paragons of pulchritude. Unhappily, the instinct to deify the norm has the necessary consequence of abhorring deviation as the very devil. The great truth revealed by this photographic demonstration is not that good looks are as good as God; the image of the Perfect Human Being is composed of every one of the ugliest and most deviant among us, as well as the most beautiful freaks. Beauty without ugliness is less than the whole platonic Human Being, and anything less than perfect is diabolical to the degree that wholeness is lacking. The youthful, female form divine tends toward the average human proportions; the elderly, male form is the ugly deviant. Mortals who have seen the Christ Spirit testify that His counten-nance is like an unmarked youth with compassion that is learned only through eons of suffering; His ugliness radiates beauty. The closer a nearly holy creature approaches perfection, the greateris its power for evil, and that is why Satan is the Brightest Angel of them all, second only to the Creator, Itself; the buck private's mistakes will kill him, but the general's mistakes kill everyone. Before damning the practically good, execrating the almost true, and abominating the compellingly beautiful as Temptation, always remember and bear in mind that Money is not Evil; it is the worship of Money that possesses one's soul. We are given beauty to enjoy while it lasts; the mortal sin is worshipping beauty --- or any other god that does not incorporate its proper devil. WORDS are ultraspacial structures created by abstracting common features of significance while ignoring unique features. Words amplify similarities and eliminate differences by wave interference. Words are the product of fusing all the unique images of several structures into an ultraspacial gestalt. The gestalt represented by its abstract noun is not visible to the material eye because it is a ultratridimensional physical structure that is manifest to our Consciousness only as a form of what we conceive to be mental energy, more rarified than electromagnetic substance. A word is an image of an ultraspatial mental Form; words are the very Ideas that Plato talked about. The tridimensional material eye can see only a unique, material example of the gestalt at any one time. In other words, a gestalt exists as an extension of its material manifestations in the form of a trajectory through time and space; to wit, a mental concept extends through no fewer than four dimensions. The minds comprehends the dimensions of time; this is why intelligence is identified with the sense of time. Abstract verbal concepts are understood only as they can be comprehended within the temporal dimensions of one's mind; a mind is perceived to grow to the extent that it perceives precedents and consequences. Athena is merely the god of intellect; the ruler of consciousness is Kronus, the Overlord of Time and Change. The nemesis of abstraction, as Korzybski pointed out, is that the symbol becomes the reality, and the individual differences in the real world are occulted behind the Veils of Maja. As the focus of the mind shifts from the immediately tangible world to verbal concepts, the mind becomes separated from the body and both lose their health. Paradise is a myth about a preverbal Consciousness, before men created words and subsequently mistook the symbol (idol) for reality (God); the Fall of Man and his Expulsion is the consequence of worshipping verbally fashioned images. Philosophers pretend to lead us back to reality on ways paved with more words of higher abstraction, like devils promising to lead us to Heaven. If the devil is the Father of Lies, words are surely the Mother. Conscious mind is a creation of words. Therefore, no one in his socially defined, right-thinking, right-handed mind can perceive anything not previously defined by words. Experiments have found that people lacking the words to describe subtle colours are also unable to distinguish fine differences in hues, but as soon as they are given the words to define the differences between crimson, scarlet, and vermillion, for example, they no longer see all reds as red. Poets expand the common Consciousness by giving new meanings to old words and by coining new words. Words referring to abstract concepts are projections of spiritual structures from hyperspace into our mental space. We are unable to know the higher dimensions of the hyperspacial universe we live in because our culture lacks the verbal concepts for our minds to perceive what our eyes plainly see. Although there is no way that you can learn to swim without getting wet, reading is the most efficient way for you to acquire the vocabulary of hyperspace that you need for your eyes to open on the New Heaven and New Earth of hyperspace. Hyperspacial vocabulary is what this book is all about. Scientific knowledge is nothing but verbal knowledge, and knowledge is the key to power; humanity is ruled by words. The physical and mathematical principles that explain the material world of three dimensions also control the manifestations of hyperspacial energies; e.g., e=mc^2 opens the way to the high-dimensional energies of the atom. Furthermore, the very forms in which higher-dimensional energies are represented serve as a handle for wielding the power. This is what magic, idols, charms, amulets, spells, incantations, hexes, and prayers are all about. (*1) Artists, scientists, and mystics who glimpse spirits dimly through the Veils of Maja limn a projection of the eternal entities into the human dimensions of literature, theatre, music, dance, architecture, engineering, philosophy, mathematics, justice, politics, morality --- in a word, culture. Like pictorial art, all cultural artifacts compress hyperspacial structures into fewer dimensions so that ideas are represented in more or less tangible forms. The form is the specialized language of its poet and the meaning of the form is the essence of the myth. The difference between science and religion is the difference between the quantified equations of mathematics and the unquantified equations of metaphore. Those who cannot focus their mental scope with sufficient precision to count must guesstimate relationships by comparing superficial attributes to derive meanings from their experiences. The errors of both science and religion are produced by logical deductions made from inherently faulty language, but the errors cannot be perceived by people who mistake their words for real things and their language for a real map. Philosophic disputes are word wars; those who live by their words also die by their words. The highest energies are manifest in the power of pure thought, which mortals call God. Words are the coins of thought, like money is minted power. It is the extraspacial power of the human God expressed through the words of men that vouchsafes our articulate species dominion over all the dumb beasts of the field, and word power is the very Divine soul deficient in all other planetary life. The extraspacial power of God expressed through the word is attested in John 1:1, IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD. Parsing the language of hyperspace reveals the very diction, syntax, and grammar of Creation, Itself. ============================================ A trajectory is a mathematical and physical reality that lacks tangible substance, confounding all scientific philosophers. A trajectory is a commonplace example of a pure, objective thought form. A compound vortex is an infinite trajectory compressed in time until its entire extension can be comprehended within a single view. ---------------------------------------------------------- *1 The automobile is actually a mathematical idea expressed in a material form, like an idol, that enables us to use the power of gasoline for propulsion. No other idol possesses its devotees so compellingly as the automobile, nor does any other god demand such human sacrifice, not even Ares; the apple of our modern Eden is a red sports car. ________________________________ I I I The sound of one hand clapping I I is the echo I I of your own praise I I for your own beliefs I I reflected from the wall I I of an indifferent world, I I and heard only by yourself. I I________________________________I AS modern physics becomes mystical, "the ZEN of science" has become a parlour cliche among the scientifically literate. ZEN Masters penetrate the Veils of Maja cast by verbal logic to apprehend reality by direct experience. (SIDE-1) Since they eschew words, ZEN Masters write no books and preach no sermons. ZEN disparages texts because no mathematical terminology existed in its high and far-off times when the YOGAs were developed empirically. (*2) Nevertheless the Masters knew a mathematical language, and they used it to express their knowledge of hyperspace. They composed their KATAs as mathematical equations in the languages of art, music, chanting, dancing, theatre, graphics, and architecture. The arts inspired with ZEN are exquisitely measured. The Hyperspace Trilogy is a Rosetta Stone translating the language of the ZEN arts into the language of modern science. This book could be called The Physics of TAO. The sage says, "Seek and ye will find. Ask and it will be answered unto you." Scientists are fond of saying that their business is discovering the right questions to ask. If scientists weren't so cocksure that they knew everything there is to know about their business, any lawyer could tell them how to discover the right questions. The correct question is the question to which you already know the answer. If you don't have an immediate answer, you must know where to find it. No other questions are of any use in the enterprise of deducing Nature's secrets. ZEN Masters are fond of answering disciples asking for wisdom by a question called a KOAN. KOANs are believed to be nonsense intended to confuse one's mind until a critical tension precipitates a mystical insight. KOANs are not nonsense; they are a special kind of question to which you already know the answer, but you don't want to know you know because such knowledge is self-knowledge; the most heinous crime of this civilization is to be caught in possession of self-knowledge. Self-knowledge, you see, is the special kind of knowledge that releases a person from the KARMIC wheel of life and the rule of Satan, however you conceive your devil. As soon as you answer the KOAN, you are expelled from Plato's cave, and the game of darkness is over. The Laughing Buddha in the heart of your personal Lotus Blossum isn't ready to cash your chips because of Enlightenment until damn good and ready. The mental crisis of the KOAN is resolved by formulating a plausible answer that satisfies the curiosity without actually taking the terminal gaze into the brilliant Face of God. Psychoanalysts get plausible answers from all their patients; the trouble with psychoanalysis is that the entire science is nothing but a plausible answer to estop its advertised purpose of self-discovery. All those posing unanswerable questions, or declaring that their questions can't be answered are not in the business of creating science, nor do they have any intention of informing the public; their real purpose is obscuring knowledge and confusing you in order that they may gain and hold their advantage over you. Rhetorical questions take many forms, and none are so beguiling as the scientific poser. Rhetoric manipulates automatic psychological reflexes so as to make the audience believe that the authority who cannot answer his own questions knows something that his audience doesn't know. The only thing he knows that you don't know is how to get well paid for knowing nothing you don't know --- and telling you to your face. ================================================== ZEN defies comprehension by Europeans for reasons similar to the incomprehensibility of mathematics by broadly focussed minds. It is simply impossible to describe the essentially hard-headed precision of ZEN practise by soft- headed language, and it is just the softest of American heads that are attracted to ZEN as an escape from responsibility, rather than for love of order. Like a symphony and a cathedral, ZEN is pure mathematics with out words. ZEN is the essence of art. (*1) ---------------------------------------------------------- *1 I used to tease waitresses by ordering two fried eggs, the first egg fried on one side and the second fried on the other. Eventually I met a serving maid who gave me exactly what I asked for. She sure shut my mouth. I wonder what she is doing, now? I've never met a ZEN freak who used KOANs to blow his mind. They were all playing one upmanship on me, in the curious belief that posing an unanswerable question made them superior. They invested all their faith in the conviction that the KOAN can't be answered logically, so they have something greater than reason going for them. Children delight in playing with words to create statements that are self-contradictory and impossible to realize;it is a childish mind that believes unanswerable questions are more significant than answers. When the KOAN is answered, like drawing the Sword from the Stone, they not only lose their game, but they also lose their faith. It satisfies their competitive humility to proclaim they are stupid, but no one can be smarter than their GURU, so they are wiped out when their GURU's bluff is called. -------------------------------------------------------- *2 Every arcane study has devotees of vastly different degrees of competence. Groupies preserve and preach all precepts indiscriminately, because they don't know the difference between genius and learned fools. The moral is that everyone who believes he knows what's what should write his solutions for world salvation. Sooner or later, people will regard every recorded folly as inspired wisdom; it could be yours. ____________________________________________________ I I I Like proverbs and all other legislation, I I every scientific law and mathematical equation I I is contradicted I I by another scientific law and mathematical proof. I I I I Wisdom is a matter I I of choosing the law I I which satisfies your purpose. I I____________________________________________________I YOU will find nothing of theoretical importance in this book that you don't already know; all you will find in this book is innumerable different views of what you already know and believe in different contexts. Since the TAO of "phasics" turns everything into its opposite, you will find that everything you believe is self-contradictory; nevertheless, PLUS CA CHANGE and all that. How much of this book you will understand and believe depends entirely on your ability to maintain mental focus on the structural points of the subject so that you can hold its identity as I change the perspective. By the time you finish this book, you will realize that the entire universe is your own self, turned around every which way and inside out. This is not a scholarly thesis; it is not the product of laboratory experiments, abstruse calculations, nor of library research. Everything you will read in this book is derived from observation of everyday, ordinary life. I shall introduce cardinal cases with commonplace observations or some commonplace facts and see what comes by way of some commonplace logic. As you follow my line of reason, you will see that your common sense leads to insights that are ignored and denied by authorized versions of truth. Now, what do you do? Do you deny your own senses and let authorities tell you what your life is all about, or do you decide for yourself the basis of your facts and take responsibility for making up your own mind? Professional authorities are convinced that the public is too stupid and ignorant to understand science, health, religion, and politics, not to mention teaching your children. The authorities have always condemned the Socratic dialogue as a corruption of youth. You won't think you are so stupid and ignorant by the time you finish reading this book. It is just because this thesis is based on common experience that you can satisfy yourself of its truth. If you do not agree with me after checking my observations and facts against your own, tell me about it. You may be right; we may both be right from our respective points of view and frames of reference. If you find me mistaken, this book will have served a worthwhile purpose as an object lesson illustrating the ways that observations are susceptible to misperceptions, common facts are liable to be mistaken, and common sense can lead to common delusion. You need only look at the continual revisions of established scientific facts to see that the most highly qualified experts are just as subject to changing views as the rest of us --- which is why they should not be believed with less question than you are expected to direct at this book. (*1) The best advice your medical doctor will ever give you is "seek a second opinion"; the advice is just as wise when you attend doctors of philosophy. During earlier years of my life while my livelihood depended on orthodox beliefs, I refused to give a thought to any of the ideas I am able to entertain now that my employer doesn't care what science I believe, as long as I don't bad mouth his politics (I work for the government, now). So do not suppose that I have no sympathy for the authorities; I have believed their doctrine for the same reasons they maintain their faith. I use satire only to reduce the awe of authority that stultifies people under oppressive doctrines. As you know, no one hates smokers more than a quitter --- who longs for a drag. The critical word in the previous sentence is oppressive. As long as a doctrine is bigger than its believers, it opens their minds to explore the vastness of its comprehension; no believer is going to give up that space --- nor should anyone. But when its believers outgrow their doctrine, it becomes spiritually oppressive, and they seek a greater freedom. And so, you see, no doctrine is inherently true or false; its truth depends upon how well it fits the vital needs and the mental stature of the people who believe it. Try this book on for size. If it fits your head, give it a test run on your road of life; if it cramps your style or rattles your chassis, you should have learned by now that we have to kiss a lot of frogs before we find our princes, and lick a lot of muddy feet before we find a God that repays our belief with as much support as we give. My comments on religions are not informed by scholarship but merely reflect generally held conceptions that outsiders entertain about creeds other than their own, like ethnic jokes express one's perspective on foreigners. Outsiders perceive meanings quite different from insiders. Confession, for example, has an entirely different meaning for Romans than for other people; you have to be a Catholic to experience it. Which is the true meaning? It depends on whether you are looking from the inside or the outside, doesn't it? Nevertheless, ethnic jokes express human identities, values, and follies more acutely than anthropological studies --- especially the identity, the values, and the follies of the teller. Some pious people may not be able to tolerate the respect I have for any church but theirs, nor can they tolerate any mention of their obvious follies. I ask you --- is a sense of humour and appreciation of the ludicrous a gift of the devil? No soul could abide in a Heaven without humour if hell holds all the fun. If I failed to offend anyone, let me know and the next edition will treat you the same as everyone else. If you find this book intolerable, it is mainly because you have not been exposed to this kind of ideas before. You will be surprised at how inoffensive they will be the next time you have an encounter of this challenging kind. The initial denial, ridicule, and scepticism of Flying Saucer sightings gradually changed to belief for no reason other than the persistence of the reports for forty years; it doesn't matter that most of the reports are not true, and UFO hysteria was composed by the media to supply popular demand. If you haven't come here from Buckminster Fuller, see how his "Synergetics 1 & 2" grab you when you go there from here. Most people expect to understand a book on one reading; a book baffling at first sight can't get a literary review. I expect many readers to appreciate the insights into their special interest and competence, but be lost through the pages referring to other kinds of knowledge. You must realize, however, that this book would have no reason for its existence if it explained hyperspace from the mathematical view, alone --- as all other books on this subject do. This is a synthesis of many disciplines and philosophies; your mind must be capable of fusing the concepts and languages of many arts, crafts, sports, and sciences into a single gestalt in order to understand the physical structure and manifestations of hyperspace in your everyday life; this book is a holy scripture for the working days of the week. Mathematics and metaphore, high philosophy and vulgarity, are combined in the same paragraph, if not in the same sentence, so that you may realize that all languages express the very same truths. Thus, the believers of every faith will find scientific substantiation of their religion in the structure of hyperspace, and artists will find their common identity with scientists in politics' strangest bed. Mathematics, science, art, philosophy and religion cannot be experienced in everyday life unless they are expressed as everyday ideas in everyday language. This book is as paradoxical as its subject. It is clear and confused, profound and superficial, comic and tragic, ludicrous and reverent, it has no single thread of reason but spreads a tapestry, it is incoherent but an indivisible whole, it is fact and fantasy --- with more truth in the fantasy than in the fact. Writing it has been my KOAN; I composed it to be your KOAN. There is at least one epiphany for every reader, but, like a joke, you must be baffled to get it. This is a book for reading many times between reflections on life because it yields different meanings as you learn your living. Read it like a Bible that can be understood only in parts, according to your experience, intelligence, and wisdom --- and the number of children you have raised --- especially the little darlings who came with your second spouse. Understanding hyperspace is nothing but the ability to comprehend plural concepts, including polar opposites, within the same gestalt. Not only have I written the text to reflect the confusion of hyperspace, but I have also composed the format to serve as your object lesson in comprehending multiple views simultaneously. A magazine style should present no difficulty to a generation brought up on split-screen movies, multi-media light shows, and studying for academic exams while watching television with a friendly friend of the opposite sex. After reading the sidenotes to get the relevance, the logic is woven by the continuous text. On the third run through, you may read the footnotes without feeling interrupted. Reading this book is somewhat like listening to a symphony; on first hearing, it is noise. It is only after the structure and the details have imprinted a gestalt in one's mind that melodies and counterpoint can be heard as musical architecture. The meaning of music is the gestalt; otherwise it is only notes; the beautiful sensation of music is produced by experiencing the energy of the gestalt amplified by harmonic resonance with each note. Likewise, the meaning of this book is in its gestalt, a synthesis of all its disparate parts in a higher dimension of consciousness. Nevertheless, each page can also be fruitful without further reference; this book offers something for everyone at any time. Once you are informed that lw=a, no further instruction is required for you to realize that a/l=w and a/w=l; the three equations express the very same structure. If you can only memorize equations, however, they will always seem mutually contradictory to you; lacking any intuitive understanding of why lw=a, the only proof you have of its truth is that the wallpaper fits the wall. As a consequence, Hitler was adequately trained to cut wall paper, but his groupies are unable to calculate the cost of deceptive packaging. There is nothing in this book that is not self-evident from elementary equations known to everyone before entering high school. The only reason this book can be considered necessary reading is to clear your mind of the rote thinking inculcated by formal schooling. Formal education is determined to prohibit everyone from relating facts into a whole body of knowledge that inspires wisdom. Deprived of faculties for judgement, the public is unable to understand what is really being done to them; thus, everyone is forced to pay the professional establishment exhorbitant fees for simple services everyone can do for himself --- like filing divorce papers --- and rendered susceptible to believing everything one is told, like perennial children. Liberated women know exactly what I mean. You don't learn about hyperspace so much as you grow into understanding as a consequence of mental/physical/spiritual evolution, like you grow into walking, talking, and sexual consciousness. Always remember and bear in mind that hyperspace extends through more than three dimensions, so you must be able to read construction plans easily before you can make sense of this book. In short, hyperspace is not difficult to understand; if its meaning does not develop like music after some rumination, comprehension is simply impossible, so don't sweat it. ---------------------------------------------------------- * I am impressed that the speakers at conferences are determined to persuade their audiences to believe, not criticize, and the audiences are seeking something to believe rather than a mandate to exercise their judgement. Thus, both parties waste the opportunty to learn something - -- like, maybe they are mistaken. ________________________ I I I The Hyperspace Trilogy I I is a universal theory. I I________________________I "TIME TRAVEL --- The Secret Science of The UFOs " is the first volume of a trilogy. This First Book puts you on The Yellow Brick Road by way by studying some simple models illustrating how familiar space is converted into familiar time by increasingly fine division and increasingly accelerated velocity. Once you arrive in The Emerald City of hyperspace, you will learn how higher dimensions are defined by the familiar measurements of energy; i.e., frequency, phase, and amplitude. You will see how the familiar physical fields of force known as nuclear, electromagnetic, gravitic, sonic, and even life and mental forces, constitute a scale of successively rarified hyperspacial worlds manifest to our senses as pure energy. Hyperspace is nothing but energy, and the geometry of hyperspace is nothing but a mathematical plotting of the laws governing transformations of energy. "TIME TRAVEL --- THe Secret Science of The UFOs"presents a graphic solution to the Unified Field Equations that has defied the entire scientific world for a century. Unlike e=mc^2, which could not be implemented without an army of the world's most creative engineers funded by national treasuries, e=mc^3 is within the economic capacity of a home workshop, enabling free-enterprising Yankee know-how to open a new era of peace and prosperity like the palmy days of Edison, Ford, Tesla, the Wright Brothers, Tim Leary and Hugh Hefner. To the degree that the experiments of Henry Moray, Thomas Townsend-Brown, Bruce de Palma, and Pat Flanagan are as successful as they claim, the first lights are already shining into the New Age. Professional engineers will develop this Unified Field Theory to technical details beyond the scope of this book -- - not to mention the competence of this author. After giving a ringful of keys to several adventurers who would be kings, the rest of this book will speculate on the probable design and engineering of the Flying Saucers. Once we have some practicable idea of how the Saucers operate, the possibilities of who builds them, where they come from, and what they are doing here are reduced to a practical argument. The Second Book of Hyperspace, titled "LIVING CRYSTAL - -- The Philosopher's Stone", explains the theorems of hypergeometry, providing inventive explorers with a mathematical foundation to create new engines, sciences, and arts. The discovery of the New World of Hyperspace will transform our civilization more radically than the discovery of America. Like the early explorers of this world found wealth, power, and fame, the explorers of the New Reality on the other side of the universal Klein Bottle will also found their empires and fortunes --- if they manage to avoid the savage cannibals prowling the hyperspacial jungles and the jealousy of the nobility when they return with their finds to civilization --- you are better off with the savages. Success could be yours, if you are young, energetic, enterprising --- and if your spouse will support you while you get your act together. The theorems of hypergeometry actually describe the properties of crystals, the quintessence of solid state physics. Crystals provide the means for tapping the titanic energies of hyperspace for human industry. By the time you read The Second Book of Hyperspace, you will realize that the human body is actually a living crystal, the most highly evolved crystal in this world. Miracles are worked by holy men, such as Jesus, when they learn to alter the crystal parameters of their bodies. The Rock on which Christ built His Church is the very Philosopher's Stone sought by alchemists throughout history; like the Riddle of The Sphynx, Peter is the human body. The very fact that the Philosopher King Arthur's Stone is sought indicates that this hyperscience was known by prehistoric cabals; they are probably still alive and herding the human livestock on this lively little planet for their own benefit more than ours. Anyone who trusts the shepherd when he comes bearing gifts has got to be some kind of sheep. "KARMA --- The Birth, Life, and Death of YOUR SOUL" completes this trilogy. You will learn why some people are healthy, wealthy, and wise, while others suffer various deficiency diseases. Even love, marriage, and happiness are determined by each person's position in hyperspace, commonly plotted by astrologists. Just as modern science has already opened hyperspace for trade and commerce without knowing what they hath wrought, the spiritual dimensions of hyperspace are all described in the world's religions without anyone knowing what the great Teachers were really talking about. You will realize the meaning of your life and your eternal soul by the time you complete The Hyperspace Trilogy. (*1) If I live long enough, the story of how I made all these discoveries in the ZEN martial arts will be told when I finish writing the first book I began, "FIERCE LOVE --- The Secret of Spiritual Power in The ZEN MARTIAL ARTS". The Flying Saucer is a challenge to science and politics. As far as the millions of wonderersare concerned, however, the UFO phenomenon is an essentially religious excitement, the secular apotheosis of the Messiah. Unlike any other study, The Hyperspace Trilogy responds to all public concerns by explaining the technological, the political, and the religious mysteries concurrently. This book is the beginning of a literary work destined to be a seminal classic of the New Age, a text for researchers, inventors, engineers, farmers and gardeners, psychologists and psychiatrists, religious disciples, medical doctors and interminably ill patients, politicians, advertisers, artists, architects, athletes, science-fiction writers and everyone who wants to know why people are such problems, especially the people we love. You are not starting to read a book but beginning a graduate university course of studies that will change your perception more drastically than an O.D. ticket on the SugarCube Express. The Hyperspace Trilogy is the kind of study that enables its readers to fullfill their vocations to become holistic teachers needed to lead people into the New Age. ----------------------------------------------------------- *1 Everyone prays that "Thy will be done", and then prays that "My will be done". We'll get one or the other, shan't we. __________________________________________________ I I I Curiosity about hyperspace I I is the mental forerunner I I of our metamorphosis I I into the Kingdom of Christ, I I like curiosity about sex I I is the forerunner I I of sexual maturation.

Rather than seek a teacher, you are better advised to find your instincts; your Christ Consciousness is nothing but your higher instincts. The little child sent to lead us is a symbol of our instincts. The child will show you your way by the following pentalogue. A real little blind child led me --- which just goes to show that the blind can lead. 1. The Universe does not hide from Her Children. The Truth is always in plain sight. But the Truth is always subtle. The Child must be perceptive. 2. The Universe does not deceive Her Children. The Truth is always simple. But the Truth is always comprehensive. The Child must be responsible. 3. The Universe wants Her Children to know Right from Wrong. The Truth always works. The Truth works immediately. The Truth works without effort. The Truth is always gentle. The Child must be practical. 4. The Universe wants Her Children to love life. The Truth is always joyous. But the Truth is always changing. The Child must be reborn each day. Rebirth is the other side of death's door. 5. The Universe is an Equal Opportunity Teacher. She answers all who ask in commitment to the answer. It's a wise Child that knows when to stop asking questions. It is a wiser parent that knows when to stop answering them. ******************** CHAPTER ONE ********************* The Universal Hologram ====================== SCIENTIFIC authorities aver that the fourth dimension is a concept of purely abstract mathematics, and no human intellect can possibly visualize a tangible hyperspacial structure. The natural reflex of lay people to proclamations from Olympus is to believe the gods without question --- especially if you don't know what they are talking about. If you can resist your Unconscious reflex to suspend your disbelief, however, your critical faculties will be aroused to demand an explanation. And you want to be told in terms you can understand; an explanation you can't understand is no explanation at all --- like being paid money you can't spend. An expert can't explain anything to you unless he knows what you can understand. Therefore, it is necessary for you to tell the exegist what you know before he can begin to tell you what he knows. So, how do you tell the expert where you are coming from without drawing a detailed map of your entire life territory? The expert sees what you know by the questions you ask him. Now you may wonder what kind of a question tells what you know, already. The right question to ask for a comprehendable explanation is the question to which you already know the answer; any other question will elicit a reply that can only confuse the matter. You can prove the practicality of this tactic by observing what happens every time your child asks a question without knowing what he is talking about. If you can't think of a question that you can answer immediately, ask a question for which you know how to find the answer. You can always find the answer to your question if you ask what the mystery does and what you can do about it? Directions you can understand but cannot implement mean that the matter is of no concern to you, so you are only wasting your time by investing more than idle curiosity. Anyone who can't give you directions you can follow doesn't know what you are talking about, and probably doesn't know what he is talking about, either, so you are only wasting your curiosity, never mind your belief. The main importance of knowing the answer when asking questions is that you also know when you are being answered truthfully, or you'll find out soon enough. Ah... so! A good question for starters is what are the identifiable characteristics of hyperspace that make it different from the ordinary garden variety of real estate where you hoe for a living. By strict mathematical definition, at least four dimensions are required in a space that can hold more than one (tridimensional) volume in the same place at the same time. All you have to do to find hyperspace is put two things in the same place at the same time --- and there you have hyperspace, already. See how easy it is to understand the inconceivable when you ask questions you can answer? Now, you are thinking that I am trying you for a fool. How can you put more than one thing in the same place at the same time? The directions cannot be followed; therefore, my own precepts prove I don't know what I am talking about. Trust me, and follow my directions. The professor demonstrates the fourth dimension to undergraduates by placing an object on his desk, then replacing that object with another object. This is supposed to show that two volumes can occupy the same volume at different times, proving that time is a fourth dimension. Do you see where the professor is breaking the rules? The mathematical definition specifies that two things must occupy the same place at the same time before the space can be hyper; occupying the same place at different times is not the same thing, at all. It is flabbergasting that profs have been bamboozling students for nearly a century without anyone blowing the whistle; anyone presenting this case in law school would be cashiered as soon as everyone realized he wasn't kidding. If you want to see real hyperspace, take one very level teaspoon of coarsely granulated sugar and one very level teaspoon of water. Now, drip the water onto the sugar until you have one heaping teaspoon of mixed solution. VOILA! you are looking at one teaspoonful of 80% pure hyperspace in your hand. How 'bout that, Mr. Spielberg? You will object that the water is merely filling the empty spaces between the crystals and the molecules of sugar. And there you have it. You have just discovered the principle of hyperspace. Genius is simply a matter of recognizing what you are looking for when you find it. You have just demonstrated that it is possible for two material volumes to coexist in the same space at the same time if they are not continuous. In other words, a continuous space is tridimensional, but a discontinuous space allows another discontinuous space to occupy the discontinuities, thereby answering the mathematical definition of four-dimensional hyperspace. Discontinuous space-time is what the Quantum Theory is all about. The molecules of a solvent do not have enough empty space between them to contain the molecules of a solute without some increase in the volume of the solution; the amount of additional space occupied by the molecular intermixture varies according to the kind of molecules. There is, however, enough space between atoms for another kind of atoms to occupy without increasing the volume of their sum. The proof is found in gas chemistry; when 44.8 litres of hydrogen is burned with 22.4 litres of oxygen, exactly 22.4 litres of water vapour is produced. When the volume of oxygen is chemically combined with the volume of hydrogen, the compounded mixture occupies exactly the same amount of space as the smaller volume of atoms. Chemistry, you see, is the applied science of hyperspace. (*1) A solution is not only a discontinuous structure manifesting four-dimensional properties, but the molecules comprising a solution are also so thoroughly mixed that any sample contains the same information that any other sample holds, and the information of any sample is identical to the information of the entire volume. A structure that contains all the information in every one of its parts, and all parts has the same significance as the whole, is called a hologram. Solutions are the original holograms and holograms are hyperspacial structures. Although the Greeks had words for wind, some writers say the Greeks were unable to perceive the existence of still air. Likewise, hyperspace remains unknown to science simply because it is manifest as the oceans of air, water, and light we live in. Einstein established the concept of the fourth dimension as a popular scientific fact, yet, he persisted in thinking of space-time as a continuum. You have just seen for yourself, that it is impossible to contain four dimensions in a continuum. It is the contradiction between Einstein's calculations and his beliefs that made him express his Theory of Relativity in words impossible to comprehend. Contemporary with Einstein, Max Planck plotted the four-dimensional coordinates of atomic space while ontinuing to express himself in tridimensional concepts. And so the two seminal genius of modern physics argued across the dimensional gap all their lives, unable to reach an agreement. Have you ever seen a three-dimensional square? A square is a two-dimensional figure, by mathematical definition; therefore, a three-dimensional square must be a contradiction of terms. A space that can contain more than one plane structure on the same plane at the same time answers the mathematical definition of a hyperplane. Actually, no one ever made this mathematical definition until now; nobody thought such a definition would ever be needed. Now, project a photographic diapositive slide onto a screen. The image you see on the projection plane is two- dimensional, isn't it? Now, project another image onto the same screen at the same time and look at the inconceivable mathematical impossibility, two perfect planes in the same perfect plane at the same time. The perfect hyperplane is physically possible because light is the very discontinuous wave phenomenon by which Planck discovered and proved the Quantum Theory. Make this demonstration in school to show your colleagues the five stages of psychological repression when the prof flips into a Freudian crash --- provided, of course, that you have already decided you don't need an academic degree to support your sex life in the style to which she wants to become accustomed. *1 Hyperspace can be deduced from the Pauli Exclusion Principle; to wit, two particles cannot occupy the same energy level at the same time. Exclusion is the effect of phase opposition. Atoms in phase harmony, however, can occupy the space at the opposite phase of the other. A chemical explosion occurs when a shock flips the atomic vibrations out of phase harmony, causing them to repel each other. ____________________________ I I I The Theory of Relativity I I changed everything, I I except the way I I Einstein thought. I I____________________________I MATHEMATICIANS define a four-dimensional hypersphere as a ball containing every point in its volume on its surface. In other words, a hypersphere is a globe that is all surface, inside and out. If you are baffled, it is simply because you are unfamiliar with the verbal statement. You have made hyperspheres all your life without knowing it by so many words; nobody told you that reg'lar fellas make a hypersphere every morning because nobody thought you had to know, so the concept was not included in high school family planning courses. Take a sizable piece of tissue paper. It is practically all surface and practically no volume, isn't it? Now, crumple it into a ball. VOILA! You got the whole hypersphere in your hand. The wad is all surface, inside and out, isn't it? Books are all surface, inside and out, and no words are so plane as the written word. Libraries are filled with four-dimensional hypervolumes. Whereas oral communication can be processed in Consciousness as small as four dimensions, the written language resists reading by minds no greater than four dimensions. This is why Johhny can't read after graduating from high school. Physicists are puzzled by the way some particles disappear at one place and reappear elsewhere, with no trace of passing through the intervening space and time. They say that locations widely separated in real space are adjacent to each other in the fourth dimension. The concept of wormholes is postulated to account for jumps through warps in atomic space-time; a wormhole is nothing but a quantum jump that doesn't know when to whoa. Now, if you look at the wad of paper in your hand, you will see that points separated by considerable surface distance are in contact. You are holding a handful of wormholes. If you could compress the wad to atomic density, every point on its surface would be practically in contact with every other point on its surface at the same time, making the entire wad into one humungous wormhole. Quantum jumps occur on the atomic scale simply because an atom is all wormhole. A structure containing every point in contact with every other point is a hologram. (*1) ============================================= The human brain has more surface for its volume than the brain of any other creature. It is necessary for the human brain to have a high ratio of surface to volume because the human nervous system operates at a high electrical potential. Tesla proved that a voltage moves to the surface of its conductor as its charge is raised. If the human brain does not have enough surface to contain its charge within its inefficient dielectric, nervous electricity will arc and the body will go into convulsions. As the human brain increases its surface, the operation of the human mind evolves from tridimensional activity to quadimensional activity. The mental faculty for fine-focus is actually splitting hairs to the fourth dimension. As a focussing faculty, language comes to us from the fourth dimension. We have dominion over the beasts of the field because language raises human consciousness to a dimension above all the other animals. If time is a higher dimension, then we rule the planet because we are conscious of time, also; words are timed. The ability of the brain to associate ideas that are widely separated by a line of logic is a manifestation of wormholes in the brain --- so you really do need holes in your head. The TAO says that a cup holds its contents by virtue of its emptiness. An absolutely empty cup is all surface, and that is the end to which the human brain is evolving. Empty space is all surface, as you can prove for yourself by simple palpation. The ambient electromagnetic field is the Universal Mind of God that has raised its voltage beyond the capacity of a material brain. Now you can see that your very own mind becomes the legendary Divine Cup when it is perfectly empty, and your own Consciousness is the very Holy Grail sought by all the more or less steined philosophers. ------------------------------------------------------- * Now that you know a hologram is the product of infinitesmal division and perfect distribution, you understand that every point-event in the universe is in immediate contact with a REPLICA of every other point-event in the universe. Particles don't jump through wormholes; quantum jumps are an illusion created when a particle accelerates above detectability (i.e. light speed) by drawing energy from another particle already above light speed. When the drawn clone drops into detectability below light speed, the perceived effect is identical to a single identified particle that disappears in one place and reappears instantaneously in another. ____________________ I I I The impossible I I doesn't take I I any longer. I I I I It is only I I the improbable I I that takes I I indefinite time. I I____________________I EVERY time you slice a ham for sandwiches, you increase the surface of the meat without adding anything to its volume. Ultimately, your ham is all surface and no volume. Since a hypervolume is all surface, division to finality is the physical operation that converts a tridimensional volume into a quadimensional surface. The single slice of ham in sandwiches sold on the Canadian Pacific Railway, fifty years ago, was shaved so thin that it was practically four- dimensional. Fine division transforms space from a continuum into a discontinuum. Fine division is what quantum physics is all about. The elemental substance of hyperspace is discovered by gradually dividing a volume until it becomes a mathematically perfect plane. We shall proceed with this process by way of a DEDANKEN experiment to discover the perfect four-dimensional element. Planets appear to be solid, tridimensional bodies, as in rigid, but this perception is mistaken. A planet is an exceedingly viscous fluid under the pressure of its own gravity, and it is centripetal force that molds both planets and raindrops into globular shapes. If a giant planet like Jupiter were divided into a few parts, all the segments would eventually collapse under gravity into balls. The plastic planet is actually a mixture of molecules in more or less solution, and you have just proven that a solution has more than three dimensions, although not quite four. Life as we know it, and everything in it, is in between three dimensions and four. If one of the planetary segments were subdivided progressively, a critical size would be attained when the cohesion of the material exceeds the force of its gravity so that it won't collapse into a ball. At this critical size, the planet becomes transformed into a chunk. Subplanetary debris is the nearest thing we have to ideal (tridimensional) volumes that will congregate by their mutual gravitational attraction. Trispace is the proper province of gravity, and it is by gravity that the trispacial world is described. Dividing the planetary chunk into smaller pieces does not produce a congregation of smaller chunks as one may expect from a general understanding of gravity; up to a certain distance, minute chunks effectively repel each other. Over the course of time and continued subdivision, the chunks become a belt of cometary debris extending around the entire length of the orbit. This observed phenomenon reveals that subdivision of a material body to a critical size releases a seemingly mutually repelling force that eventually overcomes gravity. (*1) As trispace is gradually converted into hyperspace by dividing chunks into crystals, electromagnetic forces become manifest until gravity is supervened. Quadspace is the proper province of the electromagnetic field which defines it. Subdivision of a chunk eventually reaches another critical size where individual crystals are defined. When the elemental crystal is divided, it ceases to be a crystal by reduction to a clump of molecules. The molecular clump can be divided until a single molecule remains. At this critical size, one more cut destroys the molecule into free radicals. After the radicals are sectored into electrically active atoms, the next cut demolishes the atom into particles. Eventually all particles are reduced to electrons; the electron is pure electricity. Notice that the electrical force and particle velocity increases inversely with size. The final sectioning transforms the massless volume of the electron into photons. A photon is defined by mathematical physicists as a plane particle. (SIDE-1) In other words, a photon is all surface with no volume. When a tridimensional space is subdivided into its elemental photons, all of its volume is reduced to an infinite surface. At this point, the space is wholly transformed from three dimensions to four. (*2) The empty space of the universe is chock full of nothing but photons. Therefore, empty space is absolutely pure, hypersolid, Grade A, Government Inspected hyperspace. Four-dimensional structures manifest merely two dimensions in trispace (*3); all surfaces are the two- dimensional projections into material form of four- dimensional empty space. All surfaces are planes. All planes are pure energy. All energy is carried by photons. Photons are the agents of all transformation and transmutation. Therefore, all activity, chemistry, electricity, and change occurs on interfacing surfaces; this is why chemical reactions are accelerated by fine division. The geometry of energy is the mathematics of alchemy. When Einstein proved that time stops at light speed, the corollary that light speed is equivalent to infinite velocity also proves that light speed brings everything in the universe into immediate contact at the same time. Since the electro-magnetic field has light speed, every part of it is everywhere at once. In other words, all space everywhere satisfies the definition of a hyperspacial hologram and everything in the universe is in intimate contact with everything else through cosmic wormholes. Since the atom is a part of the universal hologram, every atom must contain all the information of the entire universe. No wonder there is no end to subatomic particles. Correlative with progressive subdivision, the velocities, frequencies, and energy levels of parts and particles increase inversely as an exponential function of size. When subdivision of a tridimensional material body reaches finality by total conversion of volume into plane, material is entirely transformed into pure radiant photonic energy defined by the velocity of light. (*4) In other words, hyperspace is nothing but pure, kinetic energy. The higher dimensions of hyperspace are the very dimensions of energy already measured, plotted, and equated by physicists and engineers since Newton wrote his PRINCIPIA. The same equations that accelerate velocity as an inverse exponential function of size also prove that size is diminished as an exponential inverse function of velocity. In other words, size is reduced by accelerated velocity. As a result, a star decreases in size inversely with increase in mass until it disappears into atomic dimensions upon collapse into the hyperlight zone of a Black Hole. Conversely, a photon grows to infinite size as it decelerates from light speed. (*5) Einstein used the equations of the Fitzgerald Contraction to prove that extension is lost on the axis of travel as a function of accelerated velocity until a structure is squeezed into a plane at light speed; plane photons is the result of that Fitzgerald Contraction. From our perspective, Lorentz Transformations occur instantaneously above light speed; immediately over the time barrier at the light limit, the plane contracts into a line and the line collapses into a superdense point. The lines are probably manifest as String Theory and the points are particles composing the strings. The rear end of a racing car crosses the finish line after the front end. From the velocity of the car and the temporal interval between the front and rear ends, the length of the car can be calculated; only professional athematicians would conceive of such a complicated way to measure the overall length. The front end of a bullet enters a target ahead of the back end. From the velocity of the bullet and the temporal interval between the front and rear ends, the length of the bullet can be calculated. The bullet, however, travels much faster than a car, and a bullet is also much smaller. It is considerably more difficult, therefore, to measure the temporal interval with any significant precision; for all practical purposes, the rear end of a bullet reaches the target in the same instant as the front end. When dealing with a particle as small as a photon travelling at light speed, it is physically impossible to detect any temporal difference between its bow and stern. Therefore, for all mathematical purposes, both leading and trailing surfaces of the photon pass the measuring point in the same instant. Mathematically, it is possible for two separated surfaces to occupy the same point in space at the same instant of time only at infinite velocity; as a consequence, light speed is mathematically equivalent to infinite velocity. Since four dimensions of space are required for two volumes to occupy the same location at the same instant, it follows that acceleration to light speed expands the spacial extension of a structure from three dimensions to four. Conversely, (*3) it is possible for the trailing end of a particle travelling at a finite velocity to pass the measuring point in the same instant as the leading end only if there is no distance between the two ends. A perfect plane is the only mathematical structure without any distance between its front and its rear. Since a plane has no extension in the third dimension, it is mathematically possible to lay an indefinite number of planes in the same plane. And that is why planes answer the definition of hyperspace. Furthermore, the elimination of capacity makes it impossible for a plane to carry any mass, and that is why photons are massless, plane particles. No mass or extension is lost by acceleration; the Fitzgerald Contraction is merely a mathematical illusion produced by the limits of precision. So now you know what the mysterious Fitzgerald Contraction is all about. A child can understand it easily, but professional mathematicians can confuse the obvious beyond the comprehension of a Philadelphia lawyer. -------------------------------------------------------- *1 The mutually repelling feature of small bodies produces the illusion perceived as the mysterious "Fifth Force". This illusion is produced when the proper velocity of particles/bodies exceeds the orbital velocity defined by their positions in their field. Collisions among congregated bodies in orbit exchange velocity to produce a gradual separation. ---------------------------------------------------------- *2 Whereas the electrically inert, gravitically active chunk defines the quintessential third dimension, the electromagnetic but massless photon defines the exact plane of the fourth dimension. During its growth, the gravitic field of a star is supervened by its electromagnetic field. When a star collapses into a Black Hole, all its manifest gravitic features condense into the electromagnetic force. A star that collapses into a Black Hole assumes atomic dimensions; the cosmic Black Hole is nothing but a glorified atom. Thus, the third dimension spans the space between quadimensional Black Holes defined by the atom and the quadimensional Black Holes of stars. ----------------------------------------------------------- *3 The same mathematics that prove a photon at light speed to be a plane is extrapolated to prove that a particle's trailing end gets ahead of its leading end when exceeding light-speed, to produce reversal of extension on the axis of travel and reversal of time. In other words, hyperlight speed transforms a structure into its negative. As a practical consequence, orbitting bodies are experimentally proven to precess in time as Einstein calculated correctly. The negative of solid material is mathematically emptier than the perfect vacuum, and that is why a hyperspacial structure can contain an indefinite number of trispacial stuctures in the same space at the same time. All fields have hyperlight centres, which is why all fields suck. All fields are glorified Bournelli Force. Field repulsion is defined wherever the velocity separating particles is less than light speed, but greater than zero. Thus, we find that mutual repulsion is reduced in both directions from a velocity differential of half light speed; the next chapter explains why mutual repulsion is defined by the square root of twice light speed, empirically. As a consequence, we find that all celestial bodies within the same scale of size repel each other more than they attract each other, and that is why all the planets maintain the largest possible average distance from each other, instead of gravitating into a clump. Velikovsky got pilloried for pointing out the mutual interplanetary repulsion that no astrophysicist could see. What greater punishment would have befallen Velikovsky if he managed to explain the phenomenon correctly? ---------------------------------------------------------- *4 A star cannot be tridimensional because it is a mass of free radicals, atomic particles, and blazing photons. A star is actually space in the process of condensing into hyperspace. Most astrophysicists will allow that a Black Hole is space concentrated into hyperspace by gravity. A Black Hole is calculated to be a gravitic centre of such intense concentration that anything falling into it exceeds the speed of light; even light cannot escape from the interior of a Black Hole. Now, if you take this information to an atomic physicist, you will be told that particles radiate intensely as they are accelerated to the speed of light. Specialists never compare notes under penalty of losing their membership cards, but as a lay person, there is nothing to stop you from putting the empirical fact of the atomic physicist to the calculated fact of the astro-physicist to deduce that everything falling into a Black Hole must radiate with the intensity of a quasar before disappearing into the gravitic maelstrom. In other words, it is physically impossible for Black Holes to be black; they must be the most brilliant centres in the known universe. And that is what a star is; a star is the brilliant photosphere surrounding a nascent Black Hole. ---------------------------------------------------------- *5 In a universe undergoing exponential aceleration, every observer experiences himself to be the One Still Point while everything accelerates away at a rate that increases with distance. Since wave strustures accelerate as a condition of their physical existence, the Big Bang is an unnecessary postulate. Since mass is a function of velocity, mass must increase as a function of distance. Infinite mass is found in atomic nuclei where velocities exceed light speed. In fact, all mass is defined by nuclear particles. Since velocity also accelerates to light speed at the event horizon, it follows that the event horizon must also be defined by infinite mass; astrophyicists are busy seeking a lot of missing mass and can't see it for looking. Since gravitation is a product of mass, it is necessary that the cosmos gravitate with accelerating velocity to the event horizon --- which is what the Big Bang is all about. The point is that the self-evident can be confused beyond all comprehension, with a little mathematics, if you don't know what the equations mean. ____________________________________ I I I Easy things are seldom done I I for the same reason I I that impossible things I I are rarely done; I I no one will pay I I for anything believed to be easy I I or impossible. I I____________________________________I A SIMPLE demonstration will prove that all empty space is a hyperspacial hologram. Fix your camera on a tripod and take a picture through the aperture set at f/16. Then, take another picture after you open the aperture to f/2. You can see that both pictures are practically identical, except for depth of sharply focussed field. The aperture opened to f/2 passes a beam of light sixty-four times greater in area than the aperture closed to f/16. This means that each beam of light, no matter how constricted, contains the same information as every other beam and all beams put together. The only change that aperture makes is the resolution of fine detail. Furthermore, no matter where you set the camera, your pictures reveal essentially the same information; the only difference that perspective makes is the relative sizes and positions of the image details. If your lens could accept rays from all directions, you would see that every location in space contains all the same information as every other location; the differences produced by different locations are merely a matter of spacial sequence, aspects, and relative size. A space that contains all its information in all of its parts answers the mathematical definition of a hologram. You can see for yourself that we live in a cosmic hyperspacial hologram. The hypothesis of the universal hologram is shaking scientific thought to its foundations at this time, but the proof has been self-evident to everyone since the effect of the pinhole camera was noticed. How 'bout that, Sir Isaac? William Blake understood the universal hologram when he saw the universe in a grain of sand; art is truth apprehended directly with no need for logic --- so is insanity. Everyone has seen holograms in charm bracelets, on credit cards, in science fairs, and on the cover of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC. A hologram can be understood as a moire pattern made with light waves. The EDMUND people at EDMUND SCIENTIFIC PRODUCTS International Operations Department 8780 Edscorp Building Barrington, New Jersey 08007 U.S.A. will sell you a kit of moire patterns to study. Moire patterns serve as moving pictures to illustrate this book. The hologram was inconceivable outside of a small cabal of theoretical physicists who plotted the mathematics since the beginning of this century, and a hologram couldn't be produced until the laser was invented to provide the necessary coherent waves. Without any parade of mathematics, I discovered the hologram while soaking in my tub, with my big toe protruding above the surface of the steamy water. I dare say many other soakers must have made the same discovery since bathing became intentional. (*1) Ordinary light can be represented by splashing water in a bathtub until the surface is covered with random waves. In contrast, a slow drip from the faucet into a tub full of still water covers the surface with a regular, parallel wave pattern, illustrating the coherent light waves in a laser beam. Now, if you set a firm object in the tub so that it breaks the surface of the water, the regular waves will reflect from the surface of the object, and the reflected waves intersect the regular waves at an angle determined by the angle of reflection. Soon the entire surface of the water is covered with a pattern of regular waves perfusing with reflected waves. The remarkable feature of this pattern is that the angles of intersection are about the same over the entire surface; remember Euclid's theorem that a straight line intersects all parallel lines at the same angle. In other words, every part of the surface of the water contains the same information; you have created a hologram in your bathtub. If it were possible to reverse the flow of the reflected waves, they would return to their points of reflection to reconstruct the cross section of the object. The coherent light of a laser beam functions as a moire screen. Waves reflected from an object function as a second moire screen to generate an interference pattern, like you can see in your tub demonstration. A sheet of microfine- grain photographic film placed in the laser light will record a moire pattern of swirls and whorls; no camera or lens is needed. The extremely fine lines defining wave interference function as a diffraction grating and a diffraction grating functions as a lens. When another laser beam is shone through the film, the rays are bent to meet at focal points corresponding to resolved points on the surface of the photographed object so that projection reconstructs the form of the original solid object as a ghostly image in space viewable from all sides. A real ghost is a natural hologram. Any movement while a hologram is being exposed will blur one wave into another to register nothing but an even light fog. Therefore, holograms are photographed on heavy stone tables firmly set on bedrock --- after consulting timetables for nearby railways and jetliner takeoffs, and the children are asleep. Furthermore, the photographic film must be at least as fine-grained as the moire pattern in the laser light if the image is to be resolved. Film speed varies directly with graininess, so holographic microfilm is the slowest emulsion since Daguerre clamped his portrait sitters in a vise. The growing interest in holography is likely to stimulate Great Yellow Father to improve the speed of fine-grain film, while inventors will figure out ways to simulate holography by more practical techniques formaking television images in-the-round; the solution to cheap holograms seems to be in computer graphics. Holograms confound common sense because few people have ever seen diffraction gratings, and fewer have any idea how they function as lenses. Light bends around the edge of material particles, like you can see waves bend around your own big toe sticking through the water surface in your tub. Waves are bent by the edges of material structures because every body produces photonic turbulence around its surface, and turbulence retards the smooth transmission of wave energy. The more edges a ray of light brushes, the more it is bent. The amount of bending a diffraction grating imposes on a transmitted beam is determined by the closeness of lines in the area. (SIDE-1) In other words, the refractive index of a diffraction grating is a function of the concentration of the lines; the refractive index approaches infinity as the lines crowd together; the material becomes opaque when the lines touch each other to become a continuous area. A continuously accelerated density of lines across the diameter of a diffraction grating can bend all rays to the same focal point, like a parabolic glass lens or a Fresnel lens. A holograph of a lens functions as a lens. Since it is easier to print a diffraction grating onto an optical flat than to grind and polish delicate glass, Japanese are trying to solve the problems of diffusion and opacity in order to manufacture camera lenses as compact, light, and inexpensive as filters. The swirls and whorls of lines you see on a hologram mean that the light-bending power varies over its surface. A hologram is a complex lens with many focal points. A hologram can also be conceived as an array of innumerable lenses of different focal lengths, each focal point corresponding to a point resolved on the original object. Therefore, a hologram projects a tridimensional image instead of the plane image defined by an ordinary lens with a single focal length. The concept of photographic negative is imprinted in the mind so that people continue to perceive the hologram as a negative image even though there is no image on the film. As a consequence, watching a hologram being cut into several pieces with each piece containing the entire image is utterly baffling, demonstrating as it does that Aristotle's Three Laws of Logic are not absolutely true, but merely expresses the way the mind defines its perceptions. This modern miracle of loaves and fishes is also self-evidently simple when you think about what you actually see instead of see what you think you see. A hologram is not a pictorial image, but an array of lenses that projects the same image from any light. You can see how a hologram works by looking through a window sectored into many small panes. The view through each pane is the same, except for parallax displacement, and the view is complete no matter how small the pane. Likewise, you will find the same view through each lens in an array. A hologram is composed of millions of lens-like panes, mixed as thoroughly as gas molecules in the atmosphere. Since every part of a hologram has an equal sampling of replicated lenses, it is obvious that each part must project the same picture in its entirety. As a hologram is reduced in size, however, the number of lenses it contains is reduced, and the holograph becomes fuzzy when there are insufficient lenses to resolve each point in the image, uniquely. (*2) The universal hologram is composed of points in a volume rather than lines on a film plane. Every particle in the cosmos functions as a point in a voluminous diffraction grating, bending light as Einstein calculated the curve of waves around the Sun. The bending produced by the Sun is noticeable only to astrophysicists looking for the phenomenon; the bending of light by atomic particles is immeasurably minute, but there are an infinite number of particles in the cosmos, and compounding their refraction over a few million light years adds up to the curve of space around the fourth dimension. Einstein's mysterious curve of space, you see, can be understood as an effect produced by the diffraction of light as it flows through the cosmos. The refraction of transmitted light by a hologram is produced by wave interference that amplifies phases off the projection axis so that the beam of light appears to turn to one side without any actual bending of the rays. You can see this effect in the way moire patterns are turned from the direction of their elementary waves. The trouble with using a diffraction grating as a lens is that it really diffracts light to produce the illusion of bending; diffraction also produces the colour fringing that blurs all holograms not viewed by laser light. Another way of understanding how a diffraction grating can function as a lens is illustrated by the pinhole camera. Light passing through a pinhole forms an image. Light passing through many pinholes form many overlapping images. The images of random pinholes fuse into a blurry patch of light. If the pinholes are spaced at regular intervals according to wavelength, however, the images will fuse into register to form a brighter and sharper image. A hologram can be considered as an array of pinholes separated at wave length intervals. ---------------------------------------------------------- *1 Itshak Bentov, author of Stalking_The_Wild_Pendulum and A_Co(s)mic_Book, discovered the principle of the hologram in a similar observation. If Diogenes had any water in his tub, he may have been the first Western philosopher to discover the structure of the universe. ---------------------------------------------------------- *2 A hologram is to a picture what a shape program is to a bit-mapped picture in computer graphics. A hologram is the digital code turning ANY light into pictures like a Compact Disc turns ANY electrical current into music. ____________________________________________ I I I Optics is Relativity in working clothes. I I____________________________________________I WHERE a current of water meets an opposing current, a bar or tidal rip is raised. The water in a opposed wave cycles, but the opposed wave does not travel; it remains raised in one spot as a standing-wave. A cup of coffee on board a motor vessel or railway car manifests a pattern of concentric, annular standing-waves on its surface. These rings are raised by vibrations radiating from the walls of the cup to the centre, whence they continue until they strike the opposite wall and are reflected to repeat the cycle. The wavelengths which meet each other in exact phase congruence generate the standing- wave pattern; the other vibrations do not interfere with each other. In other words, the standing-waves are a wave/phase interference pattern similar to a moire pattern. The molecules in the central standing-wave swirl in a vortex. The standing-waves you see in your cup is, in fact, a model of the Solar System and atomic structure. Wave velocity is a function of the average particle velocity in the medium. Like cars speeding in traffic, particles driven faster than the average soon pile up a resisting bow wave that forces them to turn. When particles are driven to twice the average velocity, they are forced to turn around a complete circle, effectively stopping most of their net travel and raising a wave that travels at the average particle velocity in the medium. Particles driven faster than twice the average velocity in the medium are forced to turn around a second plane, to generate a secondary wave flowing at right-angles to the primary. The wave pattern you see on the surface of open water reveals these orthogonal dynamics. Particles driven over four times the average in the medium are forced to turn around a third plane at right-angles to the other two, to produce a fluid vortex. (*1) A conical standing-wave is the negative of a vortex. The plane of particle cycling is at right-angles to the surface wave flow; frequency is wave velocity cycling at right-angles to wave flow. Since cycling is produced by exceeding the speed limit, it follows that frequency represents particle velocity above wave velocity. Since momentum increases by the square of velocity, it follows that wave energy must increase by the square of wave frequency. Therefore, when photon velocity reaches light- speed, the electromagnetic wave satisfies the equation, e=mc^2. And where a radiant wave meets another radiant wave in precise phase opposition, the photonic fluid must collapse into a vortex because their photons exceed four times average medium velocity in each wave relative to the other to generate the matter-wave frequencies calculated by de Broglie. Furthermore, the logical definition of a wave cycle makes a partial cycle impossible; therefore all radiant energy must exist in quantum units defined by frequency. Anyone could have deduced the Quantum Theory from observation of watery waves without waiting for Planck to analyze the Ultraviolet Catastrophe and for Einstein to confuse the Theory of Relativity. If you have followed the line of reason through the previous paragraph, you must realize that material particles are created where the photonic field constituting empty space collapses into atomic vorteces. Fluid vorteces, therefore, must manifest the physical properties of material. It is the density gradient of the photonic vortex surrounding material particles that bends light rays. If you inspect a vortex in your bath tub, you will see for yourself that it refracts the light it transmits to cast both a bright spot and a shadow on the bottom of the tub. A whorl comprising a hologram is a standing-wave vortex, and you can see for yourself that it also bends light to produce bright spots and shadows. A vortex manifests the inertia of its spin, and inertia is the definitive physical property of a material particle. Mass is nothing but a measurement of gyroscopic inertia. Physics students can prove in ten minutes that vortex equations are equivalent to field and matter equations. (*2) Since a hologram is defined by vorteces and since particles are vorteces, the universal hologram is a cosmic compound vortex that defines itself by the very waves it transmits. As particles bend light to focal points, and radiant energy condenses into particles at focal points, all the particles in the universal hologram literally procreate all the particles in the universal hologram. Continuous movements throughout the universe produce continuously changing focal points so that all material particles move continuously as they grow and decompose back to radiant energy in the eternal cycle of YIN and YANG. ---------------------------------------------------------- *1 The paradox of the vortex is that its acceleration results in a collapse of volume to produce increasing density while pressure falls; as a consequence, the surrounding medium is sucked into the vortex. In common experience, natural fluid vorteces are ephemeral because velocities exceeding four times the medium average are soon absorbed by the fluid field to raise the average energy of the medium. ---------------------------------------------------------- *2 Newton noticed the congruence between the equations for fields and vorteces, but he decided to omit the proof from his Theory of Gravitation, and postulated a hypothetical attractive force, instead, even though he admitted that it is physically impossible to substantiate an attractive force through empty space. (I credit Mr. Whamond for this historical information.) Einstein rediscovered the identity of field with mass in the calculation of his General Theory of Relativity, and de Broglie rediscovered the same equivalence twenty years later. It just goes to show that the foundations of modern physics could have been laid by anyone knowing the most elementary equations taught in high school without an incomprehensible parade of mathematics backed by national treasuries. ________________________________________ I I I The original concept of "universe" I I has the same meaning I I as the original concept of hologram; I I to wit, "all in one, I I which is the original concept I I of the God That Is All That Is. I I________________________________________I SCIENTIFIC research is a multibillion dollar industry. Scientists protest that fundamental research depends on megabucks. It is understandable why the scientific profession, like the artistic, medical, and teaching professions, believes that money produces quality. Historical facts, however, contradict the professional sales pitch; the quality of pure science correlates inversely with cash flow. All the seminal discoveries of science were made with apparatus put together for less than $100. Using a teaspoon of sugar, a sheet of tissue paper, a pinhole camera, and a basin of water, you have just discovered the answers to the greatest problems of pure mathematics, physics, and philosophy that defy all the genius in megadollar laboratories. And it didn't take a day of higher education, either, did it? END OF FIRST CHAPTER
