Origin of Theory
The material contained within this book represents a relatively comprehensive view of intelligence and consciousness, and the way that both relate to the rest of our material existence. It has been stated in such a way as to hopefully allow widespread reading and understanding by anyone who has an interest in the subject.
This book was written by an individual who metaphorically was entirely left-brained until the age of 45 years. He had a precise logical, analytical mind with very little imaginative ability. This does not imply any outstanding ability as a left-brained person, but rather admits to a deficiency in the right-brain domain, including a general lack of creativity, intuition and spiritual involvement. A peak experience resulted in the sudden awareness of certain mental attributes usually associated with the right brain, and stimulated the writing of this book.
The concepts discussed in this book have been unconsciously directed toward the left-brained scientist who has not discovered his right-brain potential and is therefore incapable of utilizing this latent ability. There is an overwhelming, justifiable tendency to deny the experiencing of supraconsciousness states until one has been there. This book is offered as evidence that new scientific theories and higher-order concepts can be generated through peak experience, thus accelerating the rate at which knowledge is accumulated and reality is understood.
The long-term goal is to study peak experience and validate the claim that it can be the source of higher-level understanding as well as the source of new insight to potentially anyone, including the research scientist.
Although peak experience has been a supraconsciousness state that has occurred sporadically, and more by accident than design until recently, it is now becoming apparent that there may indeed be ways to facilitate its onset. I hope this book will generate more interest by the scientific community in studying this phenomenon and finding ways to tap its unlimited potential.
To some, the material in this book will appear redundant and simplistic and to others it will be difficult to comprehend. It was written to the physicist who knows little about biology, paleontology and genetics, and to the biologist who knows little about physics, cosmology and psychology. Most scientists know a great deal about their own field but not too much about any other. What is obvious to some requires much detail and description to convince others.
One central theme of this book advocates that everything within the universe is interrelated. Our challenge is to define those interdependencies, and particularly to show how intelligence and consciousness intertwine with matter, energy, space and time. Together they are seen to represent the basic fabric of the universe. If in fact intelligence is one of the basic ingredients of the universe, then there must be many mathematical relationships that relate intelligence to matter, energy, space and time, just as the latter four have relative to each other. An attempt will be made to define a few of those mathematical relationships that I am convinced exist.
