The Four Hypotheses
The first hypothesis is that there are two co-dependent realms of existence: the physical and the non-physical. The book explains that the physical realm deals with the tangible, material, and concrete aspects of nature. The non-physical concerns intangible, spiritual, and/or abstract facets. The book refers to these collectively as metaphysical to include everything that is non definable, non locatable, and non measurable by current scientific methods.
The second hypothesis is that the mainstream laws of Western Physics deal exclusively with the physical plane of existence. It is accepted as fact that Western Science is exclusively concerned with entities that can be quantified. As such, The Standard Model (Western Science's compendium of laws which have evolved from centuries of carefully tested hypotheses) can paint a reasonably accurate picture of most of the known objective, material entities. However, this compilation of laws cannot address subjective, metaphysical entities, including intangible emotions such as love and hope. Western Science's response for this exclusion has been that the metaphysical domain is outside the bounds of reality, and it therefore cannot be quantified or rationalized.
The book's third hypothesis is that Eastern Science and Eastern Philosophy (what the books brands as "Eastern Metaphysics") embrace the metaphysical realm. Eastern Metaphysics views the physical and metaphysical domains as equally real and co-dependent. To explain and support this third hypothesis, the book delves into how the physical and metaphysical realms interact and how these substantively different and behaviorally distinct entities comprise the complementary Eastern concept of yin and yang.
The book's fourth hypothesis centers around a newly developed construal that identifies and explains important similarities between Western thought and the brain's left cerebrum hemisphere and Eastern Metaphysics and the right cerebrum hemisphere. This book introduces and explains how the comprehension of Western and Eastern constructs is primarily processed within only one of the two hemispheres of the cerebrum section of the brain. It extends this fourth thesis to sketch how each hemisphere has evolved to best interpret the physical and metaphysical worlds. This hypothesis helps to explain why Western Science developed into its current form and how we can make use of this knowledge to help us ordain reality.
The book employs the foregoing propositions to construct a new view of nature which will augment portions of the current paradigm of physics known as The Standard Model. As its principal cornerstone, the new interpretation will recognize the existence of the metaphysical realm to help explain many of the enigmas facing contemporary theoretical physicists while rationalizing the occurrence of paranormal events, particularly that of ordaining reality.
To support its propositions and to help compose the new perspective, the book traces the discovery of the newer theories within Western Physics that have unsealed the lid to valid scientific acceptance for the type of paranormal activities I have investigated and experienced. I will also explain why and how the Eastern body of knowledge uniquely views and rationalizes metaphysical phenomena, and, unlike the Western perspective, does not make a hard distinction between the third-person physical and the first-person metaphysical realms of existence. Much of this book is dedicated to reconciling these contrasting views, and the reward for this knowledge will be a clearer understanding of nature and a significantly greater ability to positively influence events in your life.
