By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

The Theory of Absolutes was written out of a personal passion to understand life.  As a child I felt overwhelmed by the complexity of life and wished to exert some control over it.  I felt that if I were able to know the fundamental rules and nature of life that it would be easier to judge what should be done in each situation.  My study of engineering, nuclear power, medicine, psychology, politics, economics, philosophy, metaphysics, and spirituality were all outgrowths of this deep hunger for mastery of the life.  But, beyond the simple survival aspects of life, I had a deep hunger for simply knowing the Truth on all levels.  

The seminal concept pervading this book is that life is built upon points of consciousness, which were created by God, and given laws to follow (which included the ability of God to command behavior by fiat).  The interaction of the resultant set of particles, laws, and volitional consciousness comprising the spiritual universe resulted in the behaviors seen in the real world.  It should be noted that in this theory there is no dualism, no absolute divide between the physical and spiritual realm, there is only a spiritual reality, with the appearance of a physical universe separate from the physical.

From the single assumption of a conscious particle capable of perception, processing, and action, all the complexity of life can be understood.  The conscious particle provides the building blocks by which we may understand, derive, and see the implications of the relationship of man with nature and God.  The conscious particle provides the mechanism and medium by which God has manifested miracles and creation, force, energy, fields, movement, chaotic complexity, the infinitely large and small, mathematical relationships, relativistic phenomena, quantum mechanical phenomena, and the subatomic particulate forces and structures.  The implications and derivatives of the Theory point the direction toward an optimum/proper relationship of people in political and economic interaction.  The Theory provides a framework by which the enduring questions and considerations of philosophy can be given rational answers based upon the boundaries laid by the possibilities of the structure of reality.  

The current version of the Theory as it is published contains many unedited versions of explanations of phenomena as it evolved over the past 20 years.  I have copyrighted this version of the Theory as a partial documentary to the the process of development that the theory took in its path toward the most current version of thought.  This edition provides a historical glimpse into the development of a theory.  Future editions will hopefully be more integrated and provide a more cohesive presentation of the Theory, meaning that it uses the same set of Laws throughout to explain how they successfully model and reflect experimental reality.  

Some of the concepts that have been given multiple explanations of the same phenomena throughout the essay include:

1) Force: as a spherically radiated shell occupying all space versus a radiated Force Particle-mediated effect.  Both concepts are workable, but the shell concept is more complex to implement.

2) Photons: as a tumbling Dipole Particle versus a volume of Dipole Particles influenced by a propagating wave of force particles.  The tumbling Dipole Particle theory has been completely abandoned, as need not be considered at all as a viable concept for future  

3) Kinetic Energy: This concept was examined numerous times throughout the essay, taking many different tacks.  The concept integrates heavily the underlying theoretical nature of the Dipole Sea, the formation of E fields from changing B fields, and B fields from changing E fields.  This concept probably has errors within it, and the implications of those errors are spread widely through the theory in applications associated with Maxwell’s equations.

4) Mu and Epsilon: The mu and epsilon of space is a parameter which describes the permeability of magnetic fields and permittivity of electrical fields.  It is unlikely that these parameters are primary and computed by the Dipole Particles.  But, in an earlier version of the Theory, this parameter was described as being elemental and computed by the particles.  In later versions of the Theory, the mu and epsilon of space are computed based upon more fundamental processes such as the concentration of the fields at any point in space.

5) In the initial versions of the Theory, the Dipole Particles were called IAMons, in reference to the creator of the universe, who identified Himself to Moses as I AM That I AM.  After recognizing that the ground substance of space had positive and negative polar properties, as indicated by the spontaneous emission of positron and electron from the passage of a gamma ray close to a heavy nucleus, these particles were named Dipole Particles in the Dirac Sea.  The Dirac Sea was so named in honor of Paul Anton Maurice Dirac, who predicted the existence of the positron.  The Dirac Sea was later renamed the “Dipole Sea” to reflect the functional nature of the ground substance of space.

The theory could be criticized as being simply a post experiment exercise in constructing a theory to match the data, because the theory was developed to match reality.  And this is as it should be since the manifested world of phenomena is the source from which all theories ultimately spring from the complex brew of the manifested world of phenomena.  But, the question is whether the theory has any predictive value.  The answer to this question is yes and no.  I have used the principles of the Theory of Absolutes as a metaphor to model human behavior, and I have found it useful in my counseling practice.  I have used it to understand the Bible, and why God has designed the creation in the manner we see.  But, in its current form, the Theory of Absolutes is more qualitative than quantitative.  Thus, it has been left to those with a disposition toward such endeavors to take the axioms, postulates, and hypotheses of the Theory and convert them into equations and models which could be tested by experiment.  

As has been noted numerous times in this tome, the fundamental assumption of the theory is that the universe is composed of conscious particles, capable of perception, processing, and projection.  And, that these particles have as their origin the creative manifestation from the declaration of God’s word.  

Within these postulates are the assumptions of consciousness and law underlying all of creation, God as the original consciousness, God’s life as the animating principle behind all life and matter, and God as the lawgiver directing the mechanical action of the conscious particles.  All of the conjecture about the mechanisms of mechanics, quantum mechanics, particle theory, field theory, and relativity are considered to show that the postulate of a conscious universe is sufficient to produce a creation which can be rationally described by the hypothesis of a law obeying conscious particle.  

I believe the Theory of Absolutes in its current form shows promise in providing the framework of object, relationship, and process to unify all phenomena (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) under a common mechanism.  The implication of life and the physical universe being so formed is that life has meaning based upon the experience of pain and pleasure of the sentient participants in the play.

The implication of a universal mechanism, designed and ordained by God, underlying all of life is that we are living in a universe that has both behavioral and physical laws which must be followed to produce optimum results.  The rules of human behavior are seemingly more flexible or indefinite than the Newtonian predictability of the laws of motion and collision.  The chaotic outcome of actions is driven by uncertainty about the initial conditions and the extreme multiplicity of forces and factors operating in the human dynamic.  The limited ability of man to perceive with precision leads to an unpredictability of the future that adds to experience of free will.  Likewise, God can intervene in the smallest of unseen ways and influence the outcome of circumstances as the small effect multiplies over time and becomes dominant.  Life gives men the opportunity to choose and control life in the best of their wisdom, understanding, and character.  But, God is still sovereign and works in the lives, hearts, and minds of men to produce His end.

We live in God’s world, and the Theory of Absolutes is my contribution toward showing how rational argument, experimental evidence, and conventional theory can be seen as a subset of a more inclusive absolute framework.  Such a theoretical understructure is needed for the intellectual man to bridge the gap between science and faith in the God of the Bible.  The concepts presented in the book offer mechanisms of rationalizing a unifying connection between all the major fields of modern physics, and well as giving causal mechanism to Newtonian physics.  

The Theory of Absolutes uses inductive reasoning to prove its validity.  The theoretical proposed particulate elemental units of the creation (the Positive and negative Dipole Particles, the Gridpoints, and the Force Particles) cannot be observed directly.  The experimental data set used to validate the particles’ existence and properties is the whole of the set of physical phenomenon.  The particles are deeply embedded within all actually visible phenomena, which makes their existence and properties only visible over large scale observation.

The proof of the existence of these elemental particulate units, and the proposed rules by which they interact, is deduced by applying this set of rules to all physical phenomena, and then seeing if the model accurately reflects observed experimental phenomena.  If the Theory of Absolutes is correct, then all phenomena will be accurately modeled by the particles and the laws governing their movement and interactions.

The current examination of the laws proposed by the Theory of Absolutes contains only a small set of experimental phenomena as compared to the performance of the model.  Thus, we cannot declare whether the Theory is complete and accurate.  But, the Theory is sufficiently general and flexible to accommodate changes in law required to corrent errors that manifest between the model and experimental reality.  The Theory can be modified as required to so that it conforms to reality by simply declaring a new law by which the particle behaves.  After making a change in the Laws, the particles must not only behave in a manner consistent with reality for this phenomena, all other phenomena must then be examined again to insure that they still modeled results equivalent to the experimental observations.

The Theory of Absolutes is a theory, a documentation of the rules of reality, it is not the actual phenomenon itself.  The Theory it is a map or catalogue of the laws underlying the manifestation of phenomenon.  But, once a law is declared for a particle’s behavior, all other phenomena can be expected to be mediated by that law, and as such the law is predictive of the expected experimental results of a previously unobserved phenomena.  But, as always, reality is preeminent over theory, and if the theory predicts results inconsistent with observation, then the theory must be modified, or the model predicting the phenomenon must be expanded to include other effects not considered in the model.

I believe the framework of the Theory is sufficiently accurate in its foundational thesis, of a universe composed of conscious particles, that the only barrier to the eventual implementation of this theory as a generally applied model for all of life’s phenomena is the accurate discovery of the laws which guide the movement of these underlying particulate spiritual-consciousness based entities.

As a closing thought, we must again recognize that this entire theory is based upon the foundational concept that God has created the conscious particles, and created them to follow the laws He has implanted within them.  And, that He maintains a constant ongoing relationship with the creation by communicating with every particle, and every conscious spirit.  It is by this ongoing relationship that He implants ideas, desires, thoughts, and/or emotions that move the creation in a way that is in relationship to Himself and satisfies His need for love, and true companionship, which is the underlying principle that makes the universe and life meaningful and worth living in, for eternity.
