Being is the light and life within us that is shrouded by our denial and confusion. Being is that which disturbs our insistence on remaining in the life-numbing realm of our secret desperation. It is the itch that cannot be scratched, the whisper that will not be denied... read more

The Unitary Theory of the Physical and Biological World

The fundamental equations that combine quantum mechanics with special relativity have a forward in time solution and a backward in time solution. The backward in time solution was rejected in the 1920s since it implies retrocausality which contradicts the assumption that causes always precede effects. read more
