Message from the Author:
I cannot remember a time when I did not thirst for the answers to the most fundamental
questions of life... “Who am I, what am I, where am I, or why am I here, and where am I going?”
Readers who also wonder about these things will enjoy this book immensely and probably
re-read it over the years as I still do. This book is written in understandable terms for
laypeople, but may also interest researchers on the quest for a Theory of the Everything.
There is no doubt that we occupy a human brain, but the TOR reveals that our conscious
awareness could not possibly exist inside a third dimension. Hence, the book opens up with
this huge conundrum. We then systematically solve it in a stepwise fashion using
illustrations. We expose thought provocative paradoxes that are unsolvable by present
means. We lay bare the erroneous perception of moving from one time interval to another.
We demonstrate the non-existence of a perceived future and past by using thought
experiments, rationalization, and science. We then qualify our hypotheses by solving the
old paradoxes under a new and different model of reality. We show that our state of
rd existence is outside of the 3 dimension, while naturally occurring in the same universe as
rd the 3 dimension. In fact, we are intimately close to this world. This book is among few
works that rationalize a spiritual state of existence. The grievous death-bound version of
our lives is no longer acceptable. Whether or not the TOR is entirely correct, it offers hope
and a more accurate paradigm of our existence.
I have occupied in the ministry, business world, martial arts, and the medical field. My
background for writing this book does not lie in just one area. The sum of my life influenced
the directions that my imagination took, rendering an intuitiveness to author this kind of
work. It contains over 50 illustrations, which came about over years of contemplation.
Sometimes I would wake up and jot down a new drawing. Other times, drafting one
diagram led to another. I would then add text to explain the diagram. Scientific facts in
support of this theory were added during my journey in academia. The result is an elegant
text/illustration book with a life-changing message.
