As a society, we have the tendency to see the universe as a collection of separate objects rather than a unified living process. We fragment the world in an effort to make better sense of it, defining our individual selves as separate from the universe, the earth, and other human and nonhuman beings. Despite our best efforts, looking outward for meaning and answers has not given us the peace we seek, instead causing innumerable problems in science and society.
Ultimately, in order for us to evolve beyond this perspective and become more fully aware of the expanded reality within which we exist, we will need to invoke something within us which reaches beyond materialism. We will need to recognize and use our higher capabilities.
As a neurologist/neuroscientist, I have experienced the brain and consciousness from numerous perspectives in a variety of clinical and research settings. In my college days, I had taken a road less traveled to medical school by concentrating my coursework in physics, chemistry and mathematics, subjects which were not only fascinating, but which also provided very different ways to approach and reflect upon reality and the universe.
Throughout my scientific training and subsequent career, I found myself consistently gravitating not only to the science and medical sections of bookstores but also to the metaphysical, New Age, self-help and spiritual sections of such stores in search of answers to many of the ongoing mysteries of science and to many of life’s most profound and perplexing questions.
The Theory of Reality (TOR) represents an amalgamation of all of these perspectives and how they complement and inform one another rather than how they compete with or detract from one another.
Although important bits and pieces of the TOR and its infrastructure and underpinnings have been presented in various forms over the past 100 years, the TOR differs from anything else that has been previously advanced. It’s unique and integrative approach allows a transformative new level of understanding of ourselves, our lives and our place in the universe.
With the support of world leaders in neuroscience, we have created a new knowledge base which provides compelling scientific evidence for existence beyond the brain. We have credible new evidence that you can exist and function separately without your brain; that the you beyond your brain is indestructible, even by physical death; that your brain does not create your thoughts; and that your brain and body are temporary vehicles rather than your core identify. Deeply understanding these concepts is fundamental to virtually any form of what has been referred to as spiritual enlightenment.
We have found that near-death experiences and other types of peak experiences are valid, real phenomena and not hallucinations, seizures or some other aberration. These experiences can be induced by many techniques. Facilitation of peak experiences, seconds to minutes where one feels the highest levels of peace, happiness, connectedness, harmony and possibility, can advance one’s higher understanding and spiritual discovery.
Such experiences are often pivotal moments in a person’s life and are commonly associated with key insights, “waves of understanding,” uncommon creativity and/or “thought balls” (large packages of thoughts/ideas that arrive instantaneously and unfold in real time as they are processed and expressed through our brains).
A variety of tools and techniques have been associated with producing or facilitating peak experiences or with otherwise deeply enhancing one’s creative, intellectual, visionary or integrative understanding and/or capabilities. Everyone has the capacity to accomplish all of the expanded-reality techniques discussed in the TOR if they are so inclined and if they dedicate some time and energy to it.
The TOR also provides credible proof that consciousness is not something that arises from the human brain, but rather is the fundamental fabric of all that exists including ourselves.
The purpose of the TOR is to empower people with knowledge and tools to look inward for their own answers to profound questions. Deeply understanding the TOR brings with it personal enlightenment, decreased fear of death and/or anxiety in general, and greater effectiveness, compassion and fulfillment in life. It provides a compelling new vehicle to help anyone to take control of their own life journey and allow inspiration, uncommon creativity, and greater happiness to unfold.
