In this 2018 interview, Vernon Neppe explains that, though we only experience our physical lives of 3 dimensions of space in a moment in time (3S-1t), we nevertheless still exist in a discrete nine-dimensional finite universe plus a separate “countable infinity—the discrete transfinite. These are made up of innumerable ‘quanta’ —Planck lengths in quantum physics. [...]
In this video from 2016, he provides a detailed analysis of a chess match played between a living grandmaster, Victor Korchnoi and an ostensible deceased grandmaster, Géza Maróczy, whose moves were communicated through the auspices of a spiritualist medium using automatic writing. Neppe argues that this is a strong case supporting the hypothesis of survival [...]
In this video from 2016, Dr. Neppe defines déjà vu as an “as if” experience that is accompanied by the impression of inappropriateness. He notes that there are dozens of different kinds of déjà vu experience that he divides into four different types. Associative déjà vu is the most common type and is non-pathological. As [...]
Here, Dr. Neppe describes the many factors requisite for proper prescription and monitoring of psychiatric medications. He maintains that these drugs can be remarkably effective, and even life-saving, when used properly. However, there are instances in which physicians do not adequately take into account such factors as body sensitivity, multiple diagnoses, nutriceutical interactions, therapeutic windows, [...]
Here, Dr. Neppe notes that the various professions concerned with consciousness all have different definitions and different concerns regarding the nature of awareness, consciousness, or mind. As a neurologist he is inclined to describe neurological levels of awareness, and as a psychiatrist perceive different kinds of psychological consciousness. But these are very different from a [...]
Here, Dr. Neppe explains that physicists working in cosmology have calculated that dark matter and dark energy constitute about 95.1% of the universe that we inhabit. Because these ‘dark substances” are invisible and have never been directly detected, their exact nature is speculative. Dr. Neppe then describes his own discovery with physicist Edward R. Close, [...]
Here Dr. Neppe argues that evil is very different from psychiatric illness. Evil occurs far more commonly in the general population, and antisocial/ sociopathic/ psychopathic criminal, or evil behaviors ought not be excused just by applying a label of ‘psychiatrically ill’. To equate evil with mental illness removes responsibility and is an Insult to the mentally ill, who only [...]
Here he reviews the many causal factors that determine human behavior: genetics, environment, social conditioning, habit formation, etc. He argues that, because of these factors, human free will is not absolute — but only partial. He also reviews research on precognition and, then, elaborates on some dramatic personal experiences with precognition. He explains that the [...]
