Welcome to our information gateway.
What is unique is that the ISPE organization played a special major role in this first joint award of the Whiting Prize: Vernon Neppe MD, PhD, Fellow Royal Society (SAf), and Edward Close PhD, PE, actually met through their ISPE membership. Moreover, these two scientists deliberately specifically joined ISPE to collaborate with another member on developing a unified theoretical model for reality: They had both already developed their own models but “we regarded that as insufficient. We needed to combine any expertise and knowledge we had to progress with this task, which we regarded as, and still regard as, the ‘song we’re singing in this world’. This work gone beyond us and we realize that development of an entirely new model of reality is of groundbreaking importance,” Dr Neppe commented.
The two scientists have subsequently worked together for eight years and probably spent 4000 hours each on their TDVP paradigm shifting work. Drs Close and Neppe have needed to apply the empirical and theoretical findings of quantum physics, mathematical logic, philosophy, biology, psychology and consciousness research. But often it has been their creative jumps into the unknown that have been most important. Hundreds of scientists worldwide have examined aspects of the Neppe-Close work, which many have compared with an advanced multidisciplinary graduate degree which requires significant study and application. Therefore, there are only a few experts worldwide.
The Whiting Prize has not been awarded to an ISPE member since 2008. The ISPE is a worldwide 1 in 1000 intelligence organization currently with about 500 members that emphasizes progression through different levels of accomplishment. Drs Close and Neppe have both attained the highest public level of ‘Diplomate of the ISPE’ (where there are about 2 dozen worldwide). Diplomate is the highest public level of ISPE achievement: Currently there are about two dozen such Diplomates worldwide."
This is not their first award for their research: In February 2013 in Puebla, Mexico, Dr Neppe and Dr Close received the well-respected Gabino Barreda Award and medal involving the earlier version of their critically important metaparadigm “Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm” (TDVP).
By that stage, Close and Neppe had empirically shown how Space, Time, and Consciousness (STC) are all separate, and not just being ‘derivative of each other’ in our 3S-1t reality. Instead, STC is always in union. They further argued cogently that we have gone beyond Minkowski’s 1908 union of ‘Space-Time’ and as of 2011, we have their new proposed union of ‘Space-Time-Consciousness’
The Space-Time-Consciousness (STC) union is strongly substantiated in their massive 500 page book ‘Reality Begins With Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift that Works’ (www.brainvoyage.com) and in peer-reviewed publications. They contended there must be a ‘triad’: Not only is Space and Time always together, but that three of Space, Time and the Extent of Consciousness are inseparably tethered together.
They had also demonstrated that the Neppe-Close model of the ‘Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm’ (TDVP) is very versatile in explaining numerous facets of reality without contradiction: TDVP scores perfectly on criteria for a a so-called 'Theory of Everything' (TOE). TDVP scores 39/39; other than their own previous models at 27 and 23/39 respectively, none of the 21 others examined have scored even 20/39.
They had also proposed a mind-brain philosophical model that could justify our regular three spatial dimensions in a moment of time experience of reality, as well as the infinite, survival after death, altered states of consciousness, and psi. This is the Neppe-Close philosophy of Unified Monism, incorporating their TDVP scientific and mathematical model. This is well supported. and allows a different perspective from the philosophically restricted options of ‘Consciousness is derivative of Space-Time or Mass-energy’ or vice versa: ‘Consciousness’ in this context has its own dimensional ‘extent’ identity—this ‘extent’ of consciousness is necessarily inseparably tethered to Space and Time. They argued that life, and order have links with the infinite, and that there is still meaning in the inanimate.
However, ironically, that Mexican award preceded what might have developed into even more major contributions, which were direct results of those previous hypotheses and findings. But this time they could prove their work mathematically and extend it in paradigm shifting ways. These scientists were able to mathematically demonstrate tha
Effectively, their work goes a long way to showing that spirituality and science are linked together and that mathematics is part of the broader reality of our existence, not just a way of calculating.
These scientists look forward to furthering their work and facilitating others to incorporate these concepts into their further research. They have never received any funding and hope this recognition may be an impetus for this to change.

Scientists Discover Reality Consists Of 9 Dimensions,
Not Just 4 Space-Time Dimensions
This Breakthrough Could Lead to Profound Discoveries
This is applied not only to the actuality of the "jewel in quantum physics" but of the pertinence for all of reality not only quantum particle physics.
The new mathematics of the Calculus of Distinctions could be the metaphorical diamond in the jewel because of its great versatility.
Space, Time and Consciousness advance enormously with these findings.
Edward R. Close, PhD, PE, and Vernon M. Neppe, MD, PhD, FRSSAf, today announced a profoundly important finding that affects the basic assumptions of physics and changes the way scientists understand life and the Universe.
“It appears that our current concept of reality is incomplete,”
Dr. Neppe commented. “Dr. Close and I have demonstrated that we live in a 9-dimensional finite reality, not just our traditional three dimensions of space happening in a present moment of time. We experience physical living in our restricted 4-dimensional finite reality, but the rest of our reality appears to be hidden beyond our direct view. Yet these additional dimensions might provide many keys to life as we know it, and explain many of the mysteries of science."
