Vernon Neppe, MD, PhD, FRSSAf, is a neuropsychiatrist and head of the Pacific Neuropsychiatric Institute in Seattle. Together with Dr Edward Close, he pioneered the new discipline of what they call “Dimensional Biopsychophysics”. He is author, with physicist and mathematician, Edward Close PhD, PE, of Reality Begins with Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift that Works. He is also author of Déjà Vu Revisited, Déjà Vu: A Second Look, Déjà Vu: Glossary and Library, Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope, and Innovative Psychopharmacotherapy. His professional publications number over 700. Dr Neppe has amplified many of his concepts in three of the websites linked with his work. On www.Brainvoyage.com, his books are amplified. www.VernonNeppe.org is his gateway and includes more information on the Neppe-Close model of the Triadic Distinction Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) and some of the key publications are on www.pni.org.
In this discussion, he explains that, while endeavoring to calculate the volume of subatomic particles as well as atoms, he and his theoretical partner, physicist Edward Close, discovered a mathematical requirement for a new substance that occupied volume but contains neither mass nor energy. This substance, he believes, may be consciousness. He calls it “Gimmel”, and argues that Gimmel is present in every single stable particle in the universe. He believes that this discovery resolves many other scientific mysteries.
