A most unusual near death experience (NDE)

Generic introduction

This introductory paragraph to this blog has been inserted on May 17th 2015. It post- dates my writings below. If you have a special interest in this particular topic, I urge you to also acquaint yourself with the contents of a generic statement blog that I have created.

The story of a man who went for a ninety minute cosmic journey immediately after he died and returned to tell the story. Only you can decide if this story is believable or not.

I am of the opinion that our personal sense of awareness and consciousness are distinctly different from each other. As those readers who have already perused some of my ideas relating to sub-quantum phenomena you will probably identify with phenomena the author shares with his readers. If you are contemplating reading the accompanying PDF file titled “Near death experience” I urge you to keep in mind that I write principally from a secular perspective and as such I am not necessarily endorsing the religious connotations entwined within certain sections of Mr. Mellen-Thomas Benedict’s essay. If you are interested in this topic also read my blog the AWARE study. You will also note I have underlined certain texts within the essay to help you better identify with what I feel are the more important science related aspects of the work. I point out that the author is not promoting any particular brand of religion. I have also attached a separate reference statement to the original document. The author of this document verifies this particular NDE story is authentic as well as that of Mr. Mellen-Thomas Benedict’s life history, including his professional involvement with Quantum Biology. That is, how biological systems work.

I have underlined sections of text that I feel may be of most interest to you, more particularly text that I feel is commensurate with my secular-physics views about the inherent nature of reality. I mean by this a reality that is governed by a backdrop of primordial (cosmic-instinctual) awareness as well as thought. For example, this means when the author is talking about himself traveling in a void I am suggesting it is his personal sense of awareness in tune with, and resonating with, primordial cosmic awareness as a whole. I say personal consciousness has absolutely no role in this alleged cosmic journey whatsoever.

Mr. Mellen-Thomas Benedict talks about information transfer after death as well as his notion of a cosmic matrix and he felt at the time of his cosmic journey as though he was in direct contact with what he calls “the source of life” I ask readers to keep in mind that I claim our personal awareness and as such it would not necessarily be unrealistic for his personal sense of awareness to feel this way as it melded with primordial-cosmic awareness. The author talks about a type of grid around the planet where our higher selves are connected and there is a subtle level of energy within this grid. I refer to this analogical grid as being commensurate to my concept of an over arcing fourth dimension.

When the author talks about how beautiful we all are in our inner core I associate his words as being as though he is in a deep state of transcendental (meditative) awareness which in turn implies his personal awareness is in direct liaison, with primordial awareness devoid of the logical parameters of consciousness. If you care to know more about my ideas in this area please follow this link what is cosmic consciousness? as well as what is death?

Mr. Mellen-Thomas Benedict also talks about the cosmic void as not being a void at all. He states it is full of different forms of energy with which I can identify with as being the inherent nature of my notion of a fourth dimension. The author states we are immortal beings that live forever and that we are part of a natural living system. Once again I can identify with the author’s words because I argue that our personal awareness (instinctual awareness) is directly linked to the cosmic living system of primordial awareness and thought. The author says we are literally God. Once again I agree with him but I will not use the word God in this particular context. If one chooses to say primordial awareness is God, then I would argue our personal awareness is a manifestation of the wider God within us all. Keep in mind I am continuing to write from a secular perspective.

I hope you get fun out of reading this article and that I have been successful in at least partly explaining how my secular views pertinent to physics seem to meld with this man’s NDE experience. If you care to view the blog titled “A comparison of three models of reality physics” you will find at the bottom of both comparison models of reality physics that are cited that each caters for describing metaphysical phenomena that occurs after death. The Hiley-Bohm model of physics does as well. If you care to read an essay about David Bohm’s gnostic ideas I suggest you read this essay, more especially pages 7 to 9. You will find Bohm has distinctive ideas about the phenomenon of an afterlife. His ideas support many notions that I have in this area as well.

Scientists as Mystics. Is this good science?

The common division of the world into subject and object, inner world and outer world, body and soul is no longer adequate

The sub title above is quoting Ken Wilbur.

This is an older blog that I have re structured and re-posted. I feel that its contents are timeless and as such they deserve contemporary interest.

These nine quotations below are a reminder to us all that non-local (metaphysical) physics remains alive and well in all epochs. In my opinion this situation will never change. For example when you think that the Standard model does not say what causes particles to have the properties that they do, or where mass and charge come from you know that there are still huge numbers of metaphysical ‘gaps’ for them yet to fill. This is with respect to them  forming a unified theory of everything. Furthermore, and perhaps more significantly, physicists cannot yet accurately demonstrate that which is microscopic and macroscopic in physics. (Metaphysical means ‘things’ that scientists have not yet discovered or been able to scientifically describe and test yet. It does not  mean pseudoscience as is commonly believed in the wider community). This is although  they mostly know such ‘things’ are real. Consciousness is a good example of this. I believe that one day scientists will be subtly driven to the conclusion that reality-physics is a process. It is a both a pre-geometric and geometric process relative only unto to itself. The original source of the following quotations can be found at the bottom of this blog. All scientists quoted remain highly respected in the science community.



Scientists as Mystics

Max Planck
“…I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”
The Observer, London, January 25, 1931  )

Werner Heisenberg
“The common division of the world into subject and object, inner world and outer world, body and soul is no longer adequate.”

Erwin Schroedinger
“Subject and object are only one. The barrier between them cannot be said to have broken down as a result of recent experiments in the physical sciences, for this barrier does not exist”.

Schrodinger (1961) claims that the Vedic slogan “All in One and One in All” was an idea that led him to the creation of quantum mechanics.

“Consciousness is never experienced in the plural, only in the singular. How does the idea of plurality (emphatically opposed by the Upanishad writers) arise at all? … the only possible alternative is simply to keep the immediate experience that consciousness is a singular of which the plural is unknown; that there *is* only one thing and that what seems to be a plurality is merely a series of different aspects of this one thing produced by deception (the Indian maya) – in much the same way Gaurisankar and Mt. Everest turn out to be the same peak seen from different valleys.” (From: What is Life)

Sir James Jeans
“Mind no longer appears as an accidental intruder into the realm of matter; we are beginning to suspect that we ought rather to hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter.”
J. Jeans, The Mysterious Universe (New York: Macmillan, 1932), 186.

Sir Arthur S. Eddington
“All through the physical world runs that unknown content, which must surely be the stuff of our consciousness. Here is a hint of aspects deep within the world of physics, and yet unattainable by the methods of physics. And, moreover, we have found that where science has progressed the farthest, the mind has but regained from nature that which the mind has put into nature.”
Sir Arthur S. Eddington, Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory (1920)

Bernard d’Espagnat
“the doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment.”
Bernard d’Espagnat, “The Quantum Theory and Reality,” Scientific American, Vol. 241, No. 5 (November 1979), pp. 158-181.

Roger Penrose
“…the contemporary understanding of material is very different now from the way it used to be. If we consider what matter really is, we now understand it as much more of a mathematical thing…But I think that matter itself is now much more of a mental substance…”
Journal of Consciousness Studies 1:24

Freeman Dyson
“[Is mind] primary or an accidental consequence of something else? The prevailing view among biologists seems to be that the mind arose accidentally out of molecules of DNA or something. I find that very unlikely. It seems more reasonable to think that mind was a primary part of nature from the beginning and we are simply manifestations of it at the present stage of history. It’s not so much that mind has a life of its own but that mind is inherent in the way the universe is built.”
Interview with Freeman Dyson in U.S.News and World Report, April 18, 1988, 72.

What few words could possibly favorably change the world forever?

I strongly believe there is a fundamental truth in the eleven philosophical words below. I suggest that you seriously think about them as well.

“See people for what they are and not who they are”

(Original author unknown)

Perhaps another way of conveying the same message is words such as ‘will the real Mrs Smith, and the real Mr Brown, please stand up’. In other words the real character and personality of an individual in lieu of any add-on-dressings such as culture, gender, religion and like that may otherwise dominate their essential selves as human beings.

What is the SMUT particle?

The SMUT [Static Mass Universe Tracking] particle is the defining particle that validates the Awareness model of physics.

The extract that follows is a brief summary of the SMUT particles properties and its associated potential value in the creation of potentially new cosmological insights.


“…We believe that if particles with imaginary properties, i.e. (imaginary charge, imaginary spin, imaginary mass) and so-on exist, then particles with imaginary momentum must exist, as it can be an attribute of a particle. The most famous particles with imaginary properties are tachyon particles.

If a particle has imaginary momentum (which is imaginary motion) it cannot have real momentum (real motion). It therefore must be static because imaginary motion would completely exclude real motion. We call this particle the Static Mass Universe Tracking [SMUT] particle. “Static mass,” because it is a static mass and “Universe tracking” because it tracks through the universe in relation to a side experiment that can be done in addition to the main experiment we are proposing.”

A closer look at the SMUT particle

Concluding the SMUT particle discussion

Text and supporting references

The All Seasons particle can be derivative of a process whereby particles with imaginary properties can interrelate to form new particles. The particles with new imaginary properties can include particles such as tachyons, dybbuks, and the proposed SMUT (Static Mass Universe Tracking) particle. The process through which this interaction occurs is as illustrated on Fig. 1. The process in which the SMUT particle can be seen to be derivative of the all seasons particle is shown on Fig. 2, this includes how both particles come together to interact within my concept of a timeless primordial dimension. Fig. 2 is self explanatory. The process by which the SMUT particle is created can be via the All Seasons particle splitting is also as demonstrated in Fig. 1. The All Seasons particle can to choose to split into two particles with opposite attributes, this does not mean they are anti-particles of each other.

The SMUT particle has positive mass and imaginary (zero) momentum. A tachyon has negative mass and faster than light momentum. Mathematically the SMUT and the tachyon have many opposite attributes. This does not mean they are anti-particles to each other. That only applies to matter and anti-matter.

The process of an All Seasons particle splitting into a SMUT particle and a tachyon particle conforms to Quantum Mechanics (QM) laws as it is a reversible process. A tachyon particle and SMUT particle merging will recreate an All Seasons particle, in part because the SMUT and tachyon have opposite attributes.

We have classified the All Seasons, SMUT, tachyon and dybbuk as all in the same family of particles as they all have imaginary properties. The SMUT particle relates to the All Seasons particle in two ways: One is that the SMUT particle can be derived from the All Seasons particle, either with a tachyon or without. Two, the SMUT particle and the All Seasons particle are both particles that have imaginary properties. The SMUT particles has imaginary momentum, the All Seasons particle has other properties that are imaginary except that of momentum.

It has to be noted that the SMUT particle appears to move because it is static and the universe moves around it. If you were to detect a SMUT particle you would see it in motion because you are in motion due to the Earth’s movement through space. Because of this effect, from the point of an observer the SMUT the particle appears as a moving particle, but this is an illusion. The SMUT particle gives the illusion that it is in motion, but it is truly static.

SMUT particle and its relationship to the uncertainty principle:

This part of the blog is for those who may be skeptics of the SMUT particle concept in relationship to the uncertainty principle. The uncertainty principle only applies to particles with real momentum. The SMUT particle has imaginary momentum and this changes its relationship to the uncertainty principle. The SMUT particle does not speed up or slow down, this would cause it to lose energy and convert into cosmic rays. Its wavelength would not get larger as it slows down because it cannot change speed without potentially being destroyed.

In the experiment to detect the SMUT particle we do not know exactly where it was formed. After it has formed it becomes a wave as would any other quantum particle and appears to move towards the detectors surrounding the SMUT particle’s point of origin. The size of the wave is irrelevant as it still collapses as it appears to travel through the detectors, just as any other particle would. This negates the De Broglie wavelength theory. For more details of the SMUT particle experiment follow the link to the website. For more information see the weblink here: http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=36050.0

We have discovered online works done in relation to researching tachyons. The articles we refer to for this as Bilaniuk_Metarelativity, https://www.uam.es/personal_pdi/ciencias/jcuevas/Teaching/Taquiones.pdf and Fig 3. In these articles we found that the error committed in finding tachyons was trying to observe their effects, such as Cherenkov radiation. These experiments failed and the research was abandoned. The difference between the SMUT particle experiment and the experiments done decades ago is that my experiment tries to observe the SMUT particle directly as opposed to observing the effects given off by a particle. Trying to observe only the effects of a tachyon may be why the older experiments failed.

The same articles also refer to the mathematics involved in static particles. Admittedly the equations shown were not proof that static particles can be mathematically proven to possibly exist, as is the situation with the equations relating to the tachyon. It has to be said that the mathematics referred to in the articles lends weight to the idea that static particles, such as the SMUT particle could be proven to exist mathematically by someone versed in creating physics related equations.

The Casimir effect has an important role to play in the SMUT particle experiment as it is the way to access, i.e. create SMUT particles. The details of how the Casimir effect works are described in the audio provided below and in this Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRcmqZkGOK4. By the process of the Casimir effect on virtual particles in the space foam we can bring SMUT particles into our existence. From there we can measure them in the SMUT particle experiment.

The reason for the importance of the SMUT particle in the Awareness model of physics is that if you can prove the existence of the SMUT particle, as described in the SMUT particle experiment, then it proves that the All Seasons particle can exist. The All Seasons Particle is the backbone of the Awareness physics model.
