What is TDVP?
TDVP stands for the Triadic DimensionalDistinction Vortical Paradigm
Space, Time and broader ‘Consciousness’ are tethered together
Triadic: The triad of Space, Time and Consciousness are always tethered together. They are never separated. Dimensions of extent involving mathematical distinctions.
Vortical: Vortices(curved movements) interface across dimensions (Indivension)Paradigm (Metaparadigm /Theory of Everything) across the sciences and mathematics with unification of the infinite and finite resulting in the philosophical model of Unified Monism.
TDVP: The Triadic DimensionalDistinction Vortical Paradigm is a metaparadigmatic model developed equally by Drs. Vernon Neppe and Edward Close. It is based on the available broader empirical data of all the sciences (physical, biological, consciousness and psychological), validated partly by mathematical theorems, applying LFAF for scientific validation, and applied to philosophy (as “Unified Monism”). The key features are STC tethering, 10+ Dimensions, broader “Consciousness”, Infinity, plus a model of life and order.
TDVP: A Priority Perspective A priority perspective: What exactly are the essential elements of the TDVP model of Neppe and Close?
Fundamental basis of TDVP
In TDVP, reality is a unit. This single indivisible unit of Reality always exists in everything. It has an infinite component ("infinite subreality") and a finite component ("finite subreality"). The finite is entirely embedded in the infinite which makes up that single unit of Reality.
Drs Vernon Neppe and Edward Close in 2011 in their TDVP model motivated scientifically and mathematically for the essential linkage of Space, Time and Consciousness. These three substrates can never be entirely separated. This is a radical and new paradigm shift.
Elaboration:
Historical Relevance: A century before the NeppeClose TDVP model, Dr Hermann Minkowski in 1908, had recognized that Space cannot be separated from Time. This became known as the 4 “dimensions” (3 of Space, one of Time). These 4 finite dimensions are still pertinent in TDVP because this is what is directly experienced by living humans. But today, Close and Neppe have mathematically demonstrated that these are not just these 4 dimensions of experience, but that there are 9 finite (discrete) spinning dimensions, so that most of these measurable dimensions with their own extent are not directly experienced and are hidden components of reality.
Additionally, there are “tenth plus” dimensional domains that we call countable infinity (the transfinite) which still is measurable theoretically. We call the “finite 9 spinning dimensions” and the “transfinite” together the “metafinite’
The discrete metafinite subreality is contained (embedded) in a continuous (infinite) subreality.
Unified Monism: In TDVP, reality reflects everything. It is one whole: a single unit. And therefore the philosophical model is called “Unified Monism”. Reality consists of more than the Universe that technically is “finite”, because it is made up of zillions and zillions of separate quanta, like the tiniest of pixels on a TV. These finite components make up what we regard as entire cosmos/ universe. But there is more to Reality because that finite, discrete cosmos is embedded in the ineffable, continuous, without end, Infinite. that still has a neverending Space, Time and Information. When Information is translated into specific Meaning, becomes broader “Consciousness”.
Reality and Subreality: The term “subreality” conceptually differentiated descriptively the major elements of Reality but Reality remains a single unit, though with different main functional elements: The Finite Subreality is countable and has specific components because it is quantized (it is discrete); the Infinite Subreality (in conceptual terms it is a superreality!) is continuous, inaccessible, without end and without beginning.
Consequently, almost all of reality is hidden. We, living beings can only experience a tiny fraction of it. That part that we experience is in part of those 4 dimensions, but intermingled always with meaningful information (“consciousness”).
Reality consists of all of what exists.
The infinite and finite (more correctly metafinite) subrealities make up an indivisible holistic unit.
In TDVP, a subhypothesis is that this discrete metafinite is likely embedded in the continuous infinite. It requires the S, T and C, its inseparably tethered components.
In sentient beings, reality is that which is subjective, perceived or experienced. Common reality may be verified independently by a majority of conscious observers.
However, much of reality is hidden so that what exists is far greater than this common reality.
Reality conforms to natural law.
Metafinite: (NeppeClose TDVP). The discrete transfinite plus the lower finite dimensions. All the discrete, quantized, pixilated. This is embedded in the infinite continuity (see “Transfinite”).
Transfinite: The transfinite is sometimes called “countable infinity”: Realistically, the number is so large, it blurs and by definition cannot be counted. However (in TDVP), “transfinite” essentially still involves a discrete extent (so it is technically quantal though ordinal in measure). Transfinite is contrasted with the “infinite” that is never discrete or countable, though continuous, but the “finite” also includes the lower dimensions. Transfinite is sometimes used with several meanings and therefore, we have added the new term “metafinite” to resolve this ambiguity.
The equivalent discrete element of the continuous infinite is the “metafinite”. The metafinite includes the discrete finite 9 dimensions, plus the “transfinite” (we’ve called this the higher “10th plus dimensions”). The (discrete) metafinite is contained in the (continuous) infinite and can be conceptualized as the discrete, actual pixels of the infinite continuity.

“Metafinite” allows a conceptual approach of the “10th plus (transfinite) dimensions”. It allows the linkage downwards to the “10th minus dimensions”. This provided a “topdown” approach to the first 9 demonstrable finite dimensions.

“Transfinite” is not, therefore, just the discrete equivalent of infinite continuity (metafinite is). The transfinite allows models of unextended, eternal, unending information at the Higher Consciousness levels with Space and Time fully contained inside that Csubstrate component of “consciousness”. The transfinite is conceptually separate from the 9 finite dimensions as it not countable but mathematically there is still a correspondence with each point; like pixels on a screen but so many that they cannot be conceptualized.

The transfinite is not conceptually equivalent to an extra dimension (the 10th) versus the first 9; it involves a (mathematicological) concept of discrete (and yet therefore, technically, ordinal in measure) unattainable higher STC awareness not an extra “space” or “substance” or “series”. Referral to Ndimensional realities implies the N dimensions of the “Transfinite” except that there are also 9 finite dimensions too (but these mathematically cannot make N+9 as the same rules apply to the transfinite as to the continuous infinite). Transfinite, therefore, refers to the quantized transfinite10th plus dimension equivalent of part (the transfinite part) of the infinite continuum, but there's also the equivalent for the first 9 quantized dimensions in the infinite.
Metafinite includes both the quantized, discrete transfinite and the quantized discrete finite and this is all contained in the infinite continuum.
Just as 4 dimensions are experienced in part and they're in the 9 dimensions, the 9 dimensions are what we can demonstrate mathematically as the finite, but they're contained within the Infinite Continuity and the equivalent discrete Metafinite.
Theory of Everything (TOE): A commonly applied but ambiguous term for a complete explanatory model of reality conforming to the laws of nature. TOEs should seamlessly reconcile with all the major theoretical models and authoritative sources of all the sciences and mathematics, but should not be construed as reflecting omniscience, instead implying application of principles. TOEs are sometimes regarded as primarily philosophical, yet the original, limited meaning was in Physics. We dislike the ambiguity, because its use can be misinterpreted. We have, instead, used the term “metaparadigm”. Nevertheless, applying metric comparisons to 24 “TOEs”, TDVP scores far the highest with a perfect score.
More on TDVP: The term TDVP is an abbreviation for “Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm”. TDVP is described in detail in the book by Vernon Neppe and Edward Close called Reality Begins with Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift That Works (fourth edition) (RBC4) (This is available exclusively atwww.Brainvoyage.com as an Ebook). With RBC, comes an illustrated RBC: Glimpses and Glossary to facilitate visualization of parts of the model, and a reference to the new vocabulary that is necessarily in this new multidisciplinary discipline that Drs Neppe and Close have pioneered namely “Dimensional Biopsychophysics”. This involves all the sciences (the broader Physical, Psychological, Biological and Consciousness Sciences), mathematicologic, Philosophy and impacts Philosophy of Science. This makes TDVP very broad and complex, not surprisingly. because the nature of Reality is broad and complex. The authors are working on a layperson book series “The Answer”.
Consciousness: The everyday use of the concept of "consciousness" has varied. It has traditionally been the most difficult of all terms to describe. We define it very precisely, applying it in the broadest sense in TDVP and recognizing 4 different though unified levels as well as three distinctions: “Consciousness” is the most subtle substrate of the STC triad without which reality would have no meaning: Because of this, we use the generic abbreviation “C“ to ensure this conceptual unification of the “meaningful”. It is a broad, unified, general term for a unit describing both infinite conscious meaningful information and finite awareness and responsiveness. There are 4 key TDVP elements in Consciousness.

A basic consciousness level always exists in everything inanimate or animate as everything contains the most fundamental discrete finite physical meaning linked in extent with space and time, and in content with mass and energy. We call this Quantal (or more broadly “Qualit”) Consciousness: The term “quantum” is used specifically to describe mass and energy, not purpose or meaning; the term “qualit” is a broader term meant to include quanta plus the more subtle qualitative aspects of consciousness.)

In all sentient beings, consciousness also involves various levels of awareness and responsiveness in the final common pathway—neurological consciousness reflecting a product of the functioning brain and nervous system, a biochemicalelectrical admixture occurring in restricted 3S1t.

This is always linked with psychological elements. Depending on one’s orientation, the psychological may or may not involve an addition to the neurological biochemicalelectrical consciousness. Nevertheless, it still involves the brain as an endpoint, but while it may be controversial, we must allow the possibility that there may be situations where it could also have components that derive in location from outside the brain.

Additionally, there may be varying levels of a separate transfinite discrete meaning (Transfinite Consciousness) and deriving from an unending continuous information repository resulting in meaning in the infinite (Metaconsciousness). We refer to this combination as “Higher Consciousness” because the two elements are largely inseparable. Higher Consciousness may not be experienced almost at all by many living sentient beings, or may be accentuated by such states as dreams or meditation, or may occur as a trait in, for example, mystics. It could be argued to be pertinent linked with other traits such as in neardeath descriptions.
This broader “consciousness” manifestation (abbreviated C) or “paradigmatic consciousness” involves any of these consciousness manifestations; defining a unit always made up of quantum plus meaning (qualits), of psychological and neurological consciousness in sentient beings, and of possible transfinite discrete and metaconscious continuous meaning linked with various levels of the continuous unending information repository in the infinite. In TDVP, consciousness always exists as a unit as a meaningful unit underlying every aspect of reality. C also reflects three distinction levels: “extent” (Csubstrate with S [Space] and T [Time]) “content” (Cmatrix) with Mass and Energy; and Cinterface (reflecting how Consciousness impacts and influences the extent and content of events and objects (mass and energy also can influence these). By contrast, the term in philosophy for “consciousness” appears more imprecise and ambiguous as it depends on the specific philosophical, mystical or theological model (It’s not applied in the TDVP context).
Basic Mnemonic to Remember TDVP: DICTUMS
TDVP can be conceptualized as having several major elements.

“Dimensions and distinctions”. Distinctions allow for differentiating and conceptualizing all components of reality. Dimensions are measured by extent. Like all concepts in TDVP, these are carefully and specifically defined, in this instance mathematically.

Infinity. Infinity is continuous: The zillions of discrete separated components of the finite are embedded in the never ending continuity of the Infinite. The Infinite is necessary in any “Theory of Everything” because without it there would be an incompleteness, and so we could not describe all of reality in that “incomplete finite box”. The infinite allows getting beyond that box.

Consciousness: Consciousness is used in its broadest sense. Effectively, it is meaning at every level. Physically, this ranges from the tiniest quantal components through to the astronomic. Biologically, this involves the inanimate to the living. Physiologically. it is expressed through the nervous system in living beings, and modified psychologically. In psi research and Consciousness studies, it also involves access of meaning to the repository of higher information that exists in the infinite and is mirrored in the transfinite and finite.

Tethering: Space, Time and Consciousness are linked together permanently from the finite beginning till the end (in the Infinite, there is no beginning or end). They cannot be separated, just as Space and Time during the 20thcentury was conceptualized as not separate.

Unification: The metafinite subreality is embedded in the Infinite subreality. The two are not separate like body and mind. They are one. This leads philosophically to Unified Monism.

Mathematics: TDVP argues that mathematics is integral to reality. Therefore, new mathematical techniques such as the calculus of distinctions, and dimensional extrapolation, and extensions of older theorems such as the Pythagorean Theorem and Fermat’s Last Theorem, plus Dimensionometry (involving the complex multidimensional algebras and geometry), and of mathematical physics (including relativity) are applied.

Subjectivity and objectivity: The applications of “framework of” and “relative to” and “subjectivity” and “objectivity”, and of, for example, modifying terms like “nonlocal” to “relatively nonlocal” become important. Most of our reality as sentient beings is relative to our limited experiences in three dimensions of space embedded in a moment in time.
Primary Hypotheses Pertaining to TDVP
Space, time and consciousness (S, T, C) are fundamentally always tethered together.
The discrete metafinite (finite and transfinite) is embedded in the continuous infinite. Discrete refers to the measurable pieces. They are like quanta, discrete, pixilated elements. But each element can be measured in Space, Time and Consciousness.
All aspects of Reality obey the Laws of Nature.
We cannot conceive of the spatial, time and information extensions of the infinite as they are unextended, eternal, pervasive repositories of space, time and information without beginning and without end.
STC tethering occurs in both the finite and infinite subrealities.
The whole reality is made up of infinite subreality which necessarily always impacts the finite subreality and vice versa. There is a continuous interchange across all the unified realities.
We experience reality as sentient beings "bottomsup" in the most basic reality 3S1t1C as STC is inseparable (so 3S1t without C is illusory though commonly interpreted as such).
We cannot perceive almost all of reality and we need to conceptualize reality experiences outside 3S1t.
STC began at its origin in the finite.
In the infinite, there was no origin. All time, space and information are pervasive, unextended, ineffable, without end and without beginning.
Most of reality is hidden but always relative to a framework of reference. In 3S1t, there are limitations to the experience of many elements e.g. infrared, ultraviolet, sound waves; the present moment in time; 3S1t1c restricts us from experiencing the 4 other finite dimensions; even in dimensional domains in the 9 dimensions, we are limited to conceptualizing the transfinite; and the transfinite can only mirror higher realities of the continuous infinite.
These all are expressed as relatively nonlocal. It always has to be “relative to” the “framework of reference” and not absolute.
Secondary aspects of TDVP
TDVP postulated that finite reality consisted of 9 spinning dimensions. This hypothesis was tested by mathematically deriving a complex particle physics angle (the Cabibbo Mixing Angle) which can only be derived from 9 dimensions. This was then replicated in a thought experiment.
We postulate these 9 finite dimensions are likely in a 3S3T3C context based on some supporting mathematics but the changes are dynamic so the 3S3T3C is relative to our experiences of a limited reality in 3Spatial dimensions embedded in the present (a moment in Time) (3S1t).
Therefore though it exists, there are hidden dimensions which we do not experience while alive. However, it might be that in certain ostensible, alleged altered stated of consciousness like “out of body experiences”, “near death experiences”, “ostensible survival of bodily death”, and simply certain kinds of “dreams” that we may experience some of these.
Besides these 9 finite discrete / pixilated/ quantized finite dimensions, there is what could be called "tenth plus" dimensions: This is the discrete transfinite of Ndimensions of finite subreality and extending through the transfinite. But the transfinite is still measurable: It is "countable infinity" and measured by ordinal not interval methods.
The finite and the countable infinity of the transfinite together can be called the discrete metafinite and is measurable and can mirror what is happening in an ineffable continuous infinite.
Reality can be conceptualized as a "topdown" approach, from these higher dimensional levels; or from our "bottoms up" experience, where we remain in the both that is 3S1t, and where we only have some pieces of the multidimensional jigsaw puzzle of the finite subreality.
In the infinite subreality, STC exists without end, unextended but specifically when representing the finite it is extended in that individual unit context.
Communication mechanisms occur across, between and within dimensions.
There is a higher level process that allows for this communication, and this can be at different systems levels and the content is through what is called "vortical indivension".
Keys to the mathematics are pertinent including the Calculus of Distinctions, Dimensional Extrapolation, modifications of existing Pythagorean and Fermat's Last Theorem, plus Algebraic and Geometric Dimensionometries.
"Consciousness" refers to meaningful information. It manifests at different levels from the smallest "quantum" or possibly subquantum equivalent to the astrophysical cosmological. It has inanimate and animate components— biological, psychological and neurological as well as "higher consciousness" components that impact the infinite subrealities.
All higher consciousness and all of NC is ultimately integrated through that finite 3S1t1C physical living component called consciousness in the nervous system in sentient beings.
LFAF: The concept in Philosophy of Science of Falsifiability required in science is pertinent. However, Feasibility is a key as well and sometimes more relevant e.g. in Medicine, responses to interpret a treatment as feasible may be more important than statistical significance; some aspects such evolution or the Big Bang are not easily falsified but must be feasible; in TDVP this is important, because in any multidimensional studies, and in the study of Infinity what is feasible is more pertinent than what cannot be falsified. In 3S1t we use jigsaw puzzle pieces to put together a picture. Neppe and Close described this advance in Philosophy of Science for the first time in the book Reality Begins with Consciousness. It is called LFAF: “Lower dimensional feasibility, absent falsification.”
Tertiary aspects of TDVP
Communication through dimensions is via a process (called "indivension" ) utilizing zillions of (content) "vortices ( interfacing with vectors, scalars, tensors) to produce vast finite and infinite interfacing tracks.
A model for understanding the apprehension and manipulation of objects or events (psi) is provided including the ostensible rare events, precognition and retrocognition, and freedom of choice.
The infinite has several elements all existing together:
 metaspace
 metatime
 metaconsciousness (meaningful metainformation)
 metalife (polife = potential life in the finite)
 metaorder (ordropy).
Quaternary aspects of TDVP
We do not know how to appreciate the infinite but exist in certain modifiable finite tracks that derive from the infinite.
Order always exists in the infinite eternally and pervades the finite as “multidimensional ordropy”.
Entropy always exists in the finite and impacts the infinite.
Meaningful information is called “metaconsciousness? in the infinite.

Distinctions of interpretation recognize that everything is relative to one’s framework, hence the perceptual, conceptual and experiential; the subjective is separated from the objective; the infinite is separated from the infinite.

Existential distinctions differentiate extent, content and impact. Extent is directly measurable, such as Space and Time and the extent of Consciousness; content is what is contained, such as Mass and Energy and the content of Consciousness; impact involves the influences on content and extent including the impact of Consciousness—physical communications, psi, Divinity even, of massenergy in space and time such as volcanoes and earthquakes or physical forces.

Life tracks: The finite experiences in any of the nine dimensions are reflected in an infinite mirroring (like a picture on a screen) of choices that have been made: The branches could have changed producing a different outcome.

TRUE units: Triadic relative uniform equivalence is a new concept in TDVP reflecting the preeminence of “consciousness” at the quantal and subquantal level and ultimately having enormous relevance in such concepts as dark matter and dark energy. The “dark” element may be reflecting, in fact, a consciousness and this may be the “dark triad”.
Key Terms
10th plus dimension: A postulated 10th transfinite series of dimensions, predominantly containing Csubstrate qualities, with or without S and T substrates (though still linked to S and T by tethering across dimensions).
Finite: Limited extent in space, time or consciousness: discrete, discontinuous, countable set of values subreality. Infinite: (TDVP) Limitless, unbounded, continuous, without end subreality in Space, Time and Consciousness (C) Substrates. Interfaces with finite and though largely unknown, it obeys the laws of nature.

STC: Space, time and “consciousness”: specifically, S, T and Csubstrates (S, T and C). Substrate: The source of all distinctions of extent and content: There is STC: a Space substrate, a Time substrate and a special kind of substrate of “Consciousness” (Csubstrate).

Space: (S) Volumetric extent including the dimensions of height, depth, and width (reflects three variables of extent with an interval metric) within which physical reality manifests.

Time: (T) Duration of finite moments perceived together as past, present and future and an infinitely continuous substrate. In finite reality, this encompasses three proposed dimensions of extent encompassing all lowerdimensional realities and events and necessarily moving through space and consciousness.

Consciousness: The everyday use of the concept of "consciousness" has varied. It has traditionally been the most difficult of all terms to describe. We define it very precisely, applying it in the broadest sense in TDVP: The most subtle of the STC triad without which reality would have no meaning: “Consciousness” is a broad, unified, general term for a unit describing both infinite conscious meaningful information and finite awareness and responsiveness (because of this we use the term Csubstrate to ensure this conceptual unification; we can also refer to “paradigmatic consciousness”).
There are four levels of consciousness as defined in TDVP:

A basic consciousness level always exists in everything inanimate or animate as everything contains the most fundamental discrete finite physical meaning linked in extent with space and time, and in content with mass and energy. We call this Quantal (or more broadly “Qualit”) Consciousness: The term “quantum” is used specifically to describe mass and energy, not purpose or meaning; the term “qualit” is a broader term meant to include quanta plus the more subtle qualitative aspects of consciousness.

In all sentient beings, consciousness also involves various levels of awareness and responsiveness in the final common pathway  eurological consciousness reflecting a product of the functioning brain and nervous system, a biochemicalelectrical admixture occurring in restricted 3S1t.

This is always linked with psychological elements. Depending on one’s orientation, the psychological may or may not involve an addition to the neurological biochemicalelectrical consciousness. Nevertheless, it still involves the brain as an endpoint, but while it may be controversial, we must allow the possibility that there may be situations where it could also have components that derive in location from outside the brain.

Additionally, there may be varying levels of a separate transfinite discrete meaning (Transfinite Consciousness) and deriving from an unending continuous information repository resulting in meaning in the infinite (Metaconsciousness). We refer to this combination as “Higher Consciousness” because the two elements are largely inseparable. Higher Consciousness may not be experienced almost at all by many living sentient beings, or may be accentuated by such states as dreams or meditation, or may occur as a trait in, for example, mystics. It could be argued to be pertinent linked with other traits such as in neardeath descriptions.
Therefore, C for Broader Consciousness defines a unit always made up of quantum plus meaning (collectively together called “qualits”), of psychological and neurological consciousness in sentient beings, and of possible transfinite discrete and metaconscious continuous meaning linked with various levels of the continuous unending information repository in the infinite. In TDVP, consciousness always exists as a unit as a meaningful unit underlying every aspect of reality. By contrast, the philosophical term “consciousness” appears more imprecise and ambiguous as it depends on the specific philosophical, mystical or theological model.

3S1t: Our conventional scientific reality (what, we, as living sentient beings experience)—3 dimensions of space (length, breadth, height) (3S) and 1 moment in time (1t) (the “present”), 1T is 1 broader time dimension with past, present and future; D is nonspecific for dimensions; 3D = 3 dimensions; 9 dimensions are abbreviated 9D or 9D.

LFAF: LowerDimensional Feasibility, Absent Falsification (Philosophy of Science approach to proof); the basis for including logically feasible concepts in hypotheses that may not be falsifiable in 3S1t. This is applicable at all dimensional levels.
