Essay Abstract

Three (3D) dimensional phenomena can be thought of as an unlimited number of OD point-centered locations and processes that remain undivided (as one point) in the fourth dimension of space (4D) which most physicists think of as a point in time. This higher dimensional 0D/4D point localizes the nonlocal whole as an ‘observer-driven mechanism’ re-calibrating and re-generating all electromagnetic and gravitational field potentials. This means that to directly experience, recognize, and understand this phenomenon, human beings must be consciously observing ‘it.’ All 0D points maintain their ‘non-material absence’ as the indivisible ‘presence’ of a primordial (Godlike) awareness which we (can) experience - both individually and together - as an ‘insightful witnessing all-knowing mirror-like intelligence.’ (In other words, our experience is made possible by that which is always present, all-knowing, and therefore all powerful.) Primal 0D awareness (can) be experienced as the basis of our self-centric (subjective) experience. 0D/4D observation determines how we appear physically and psychologically. It demands that we make sense of our experiences. It functions as our very own (self/Self-aware) observer. Free will is the effect of 0D/4D observer-driven consciousness on 3D geometry, biology, and psychology. The manipulation of things, thoughts, and activities in 3D requires 0D/4D self-aware-consciousness. If stressful, ‘this’ is experienced as pain and suffering (i.e., psychophysiological tension). 0D/4D consciousness of our 3D experience encourages us to utilize our free will in meaningful ways, to discover evermore beneficial ways of directing our attention. 

All that can change is precisely coordinated by what does not change. This ensures that every moment of our lives can be experienced as incomparably unique. Yet, the majority of scientists have searched for what is fundamental in what is undecidable, uncomputable, and unpredictable.

Author Bio

Since an N.D.E. at four I’ve been exploring humanity’s capacity to share a commonly-sensed consciousness. One-on-one, or as a group facilitator, I love sharing experientially and insightfully. For forty years, I have explored two-way telepathic awareness with hundreds of groups and thousands of individuals. With a background in physics, neuroscience, (para)psychology, philosophy, art and art history, healing, mysticism, and filmmaking, I adore learning with you. As founder of the Human Connection Institute, I orchestrate a large-scale, spiritually-inspired, multinational, scientifically-based, media project, designed to facilitate humanity's imminent leap into collective enlightenment.

Prof Andrews,

Let me congratulate you for writing an excellent essay !!

Your Words……..

'Each higher polar point serves as an observer-driven mechanism, measuring and manifesting gradations of self-organizing electromagnetic and gravitational potentials. All 0D points also sustain their ‘non-material’ absence—in space over time—as the indivisible presence of a primordial (Godlike) awareness which we can consciously experience as an ‘insightful witnessing all-knowing mirror-like intelligence.’ …. Are very nice.

Can you please elaborate how any material can be equipped with knowledge???

It is interesting and astonishing to know that you remembered your ‘NDE at four’ till now, any comments???

Dear Sir,

I'm not sure why my essay has not answered your first question.

I have chosen the following passage from my essay as one among several that may (hopefully) address your question succinctly.

"In this model, observational measurements (OM) are (virtual) dimensional, spatiotemporal, energetic, and material structures that result from 0D/4D observations. OM re-generates, re-visits, and re-members re-uniting what was with what could be—as what is. Formless (all-D) observations, at every dimensional level, allow for an ever-evolving recreation of forms to remain fundamentally undivided. This is why our sense of consciousness is ubiquitous."

I'm offering that material is non-material by its very nature.

In answer to your second question, my NDE experience is not a memory, it persists timelessly as if it were still happening in an eternal now.

Thank You so very deeply and sincerely for your kind consideration and interest.

With All Love,

Sperry

Dear sir,

Thank you for your reply. But some how I could not grasp it, can you please reword it.....

your NDE at four.... do you do do meditation???

If you are replying any of comments I posted on your essay, I request you to post a copy or intimation that you posted reply, on my essay

“A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy”

also,so that I can continue discussion….

Yes, I meditate ...

Please tell me if you understand what I am saying here.

"This essay suggests the universe is an

observational measurement system which grows by

re-uniting with its ‘Self.’ That which cannot be

divided against itself (i.e., an absolute Void) is by

definition unbounded, immeasurable, and

(virtually) non-existent. It can retain these qualities

as any number of non-dimensional (0D) points. The

introduction of any ‘form’ of spatial process -

between and among 0D points - is ‘bound’ to be

accompanied by some form of (albeit virtual)

spatiotemporal field phenomena."

Also, please note, can you give me a link or way to find your essay?

Dear Prof Charles Sperry Andrews,

I am sorry for the late , I did not visit your page and just saw your reply, So those non dimensional (0D)points are self ....

In my opinion this is Consciousness and is a constant guidance force which guides all aspects of life..

for particles like electron, this may the charge. For astronomical bodies this the Universal Gravitational Force acting on that body at that instant of time and space (UGF). This UGF varies with time and space and configuration of Universe around it at that instant.

Hope you can spend a little time on my essay to see how the above definitions in more detail. ( https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3416 ) Title of the essay...

Dear Charles,

I was happily surprised when I began reading your essay. The 0D Point has many equalities with my Point Zero inside Total Simultaneity.

Your “observer driven consciousness” I like my “partial consciousness” of a conscious agent.

Your illustration 1/4 shows me that like me you have thought a lot about how to organise the reality we are experiencing and its origin.

Your quote of Schrodinger on page 5, fits boh your mine interpretation, so is your quote of Max Planck on page 5, however, I find it more in line with my interpretation.

On awareness/consciousness pls see my essay.

“Consciousness is never experienced in the plural” see my reference of reference.

I am very happy to have met someone who is thinking in the same direction as I. I hope you will be able to read and comment also my essay

and can to learn from each other. (but don't forget it is difficult to be accepted in Institutional Science)

best regards and success

Wilhelmus de Wilde
