Multiple dimensions of space is a notion developed by nineteenth century mathematician-theologians to explain the idea of God in scientific language. Today, with the development of unified field theories in physics, such multiple dimensions are thought by many to have a factual basis which accounts for sub-atomic interactions.

In this 2018 video, he points out that tribal beliefs concerning reincarnation can be found among indigenous people throughout the world.

Here he suggests that the current systems of chakras have antecedents going back to the Indus Valley civilization over 5,000 years ago.
