What does it mean to align with the flow of The Unified Field?

By Theodore J. St. John, MS, MA, Ph. D.                                                       15 Jan 2021


I recently discovered a website called the Thrive Movement (thrivemovement.com) and watched the documentary video “Thrive I”. Although I don’t know enough to comment on the conspiracy theories they present, their discussion about the unified field was very much in line with the holomorphic process. One of the take-home messages was the assertion that “the solutions to virtually all our problems come through alignment with the flow of the energy in the field.” The question I would like to ask (and offer an answer) is: how do we do that? In order to know how to do it we first have to know what it means to be aligned. In the video, the unified field was represented by the torus, and as a physicist, it made a lot of sense to me. It came as an epiphany because I had always focused on a spherical model of quantum particles and a spherical shell model of atoms. But then I realized that the torus model fell into alignment with everything I knew, from nuclear physics to life in general. I’ll explain in my next post, “A Geometric Model Based on Frequency That Reveals the Nature of Time“, an article that I had written long before I saw the Thrive video.

            My wife watched the video with me and she was not able to grasp the importance of the torus. As a housewife, full-time mother and now a grandmother, she has a worldview that didn’t resonate with the torus model even though I believe that for the most part, she is in “alignment with the flow of the energy in the field”.  I see this as a missing link, a line of reasoning that is needed to connect one’s current worldview, represented by the torus itself, to a person’s center, represented by the central core – the “hole” in the center of the torus.  So in this paper I will present an explanation that I hope will provide the missing link for others.

It’s about time… or rather timing

            Some would say that “aligning with the flow of the energy in the field” means to live in harmony with nature. But as Arthur Young explained in The Reflexive Universe, Evolution of Consciousness most processes that are in harmony with nature act in ways that increase entropy, i.e. increase disorder or disorganization. Then he pointed out that there is a critical turning point in nature: a point where energy, in the form of a polymer (a group of physical molecules), somehow becomes able to go against nature and reverse or decrease entropy. Rather than just being complex chains of molecules (polymers) they become organisms in the true sense of the word: they organize, decrease disorder. As a result, the whole becomes greater than the sum of its physical parts, i.e. the parts synergize. Not only are they able to store energy, they are able to choose how to use it.

            As a nuclear engineer, I am very familiar with this phenomenon in non-living matter. We call it “mass defect” and it is the source of the energy of a nuclear bomb. And we understand how to use it in a controlled nuclear power reactor to provide heat and generate electricity that can then be used to support life. So it is a very real and powerful phenomenon. But what Young points out is that, unlike heavy metals used in nuclear power, organic polymers that make up proteins have molecular bonds that, within a specific range of temperatures, allow the polymers to be flexible – to move in a free and random fashion. And they move as a result of interactions with their surroundings. Sometimes they move in phase with those interactions and sometimes they are out of phase. When they move in phase, they experience what is commonly known as a standing wave, which can collect, store and cause mechanical systems to release a bunch of energy (the Tacoma Narrows bridge disaster video shows a great example). The key point that Young makes early in the book (see pg. 49) is that the ability to synergize and then use correct timing to control the release of the stored energy is what distinguishes life from non-life.  That, he says, has to be learned.

            But how do you learn correct timing? Like learning to dance, first you have to learn the basic moves of the process that you want to time. Not only do you have to know the basic moves, you have to know the order in which they happen. Timing then is just a matter of recognizing cues that signal the next step is about to happen. Clearly, if there is a “correct” (right, good, etc.) direction that supports life and points us “forward” in the process, there is an “incorrect” direction. Based on this, I would say that “alignment with the flow of the energy in the field” implies the “correct” direction of the flow – the direction that results in synergy. Therefore we need to learn the basic steps and the correct order, which is what I will present as the holomorphic process model.

The basic steps and the correct order

            As explained by Young, the starting point for understanding consciousness is “light”. He defines light energy as a “unit of action” and he develops a map, called an “arc” that lays out the downward path of transformation (“the fall”) that energy naturally takes due to increasing entropy in the process of becoming physical matter. Then he explains how there is a region within the spectrum of process where certain types of chemical compounds exist in the right state of flexibility (their chemical bonds behave in a free and random fashion) and within a range of temperature that allow them to experience motion. And their motion, which is initially caused by random interactions with other units of energy, can become resonant motion, thereby allowing them to store energy.  At that point, it is possible for them to use that stored energy as feedback to control the timing of their own “bodies” and reverse entropy by increasing organization. This is the turning point – the point at which physical molecules gain a degree of self-control – that he defines as “the origin of life”.

            He explained that “the fall” was a stepwise loss of freedom, referring to the number of degrees of freedom that the energy experienced while transforming from light into nuclear particles and eventually into chains of molecules. This, he explained, could also be seen as an increase in the number of constraints to movement. The turn then corresponds to the point where matter regains some freedom (the freedom of movement), which gives it the ability or potential to climb back toward a state of total freedom (no constraints) – as light. But it is only the potential to do so; it requires work (a form of energy) and it requires some trial and error to learn which actions allow it to rise forward and which actions will cause it to fall backward again.  I submit the holomorphic process, which I will explain below, as a model that provides evidence as to which is which – a practical model that can be used in daily life. But first we need to drill down even deeper into Young’s model.

            Young provided a good model at the physical level, assuming you consider nuclear particles to be physical. He mentioned that an underlying cyclic process was repeated at every level of development, resulting in tiers, levels, sub-stages, stages, etc., which he applied to living beings and categorized them as kingdoms, species, families, etc. He said, “In each case, a plurality of units at one level is a unit at the next level.” And again, he discussed directionality in terms of the “fall” and the “turn”. So he recognized the tiered nature of the pattern present at each level and had good reason to conclude that the process segmented itself into seven distinct steps or stages at the physical level. The eighth step, he said, would correspond to a complete transformation – a metamorphosis into a new type of being: a new kingdom.

            But Young never went deep enough to what I consider to be the “kernel of process”, i.e. the fundamental process that makes the whole theory work. He alluded to it as a “unit of action” and mentioned parts of it when he discussed duality and polarity, such as the separation of unified energy into a duality – binary bits, like a proton-electron pair. And he briefly mentioned a torus as being the intersection of two circularities (pg. xxv), as shown below in Figure 1. But I submit that the bottom line of the process is where we can find the missing link – the line of reasoning that will provide a common theme between worldviews – the key to directionality. Then we should be better able to use that key and unlock our own source of power.

            It is my contention that the cyclic motion between two extremes, and its associated direction, which is what puts the “vector” in the vector equilibrium discussed in Thrive I, is the most fundamental “kernel of process”. Here the word “kernel” is interpreted like the permanent computer code that is at the core of a computer’s operating system. It instructs the computer on what to do at the machine level in order to boot up and operate; and it has complete control over everything in the system. But a kernel also means “the central or most important part of something” and “the soft, edible part of a seed” when used in the context of living things. In that analogy, the holomorphic process would be a “gamete” and is an appropriate model for developing the toroidal seed of process.

Figure 1 Two circularities in the torus. If the horizontal circle represents a magnetic field, the straight arrow would represent the direction of an electric current (discussed in the appendix). The two vertical circles could then be interpreted as a complete path, which is required to make an electric circuit.

The “correct” direction

            The torus is an excellent 3-dimensional representation of a kernel (or seed from which life springs forth) because it provides a visual model of two cyclic processes modeled as two orthogonal circles coupled exactly like an electromagnetic wave. It provides directionality, but its directionality as a whole depends on the direction of the two circular components. Understanding the individual components will allow us to apply this directionality to process in everyday life. The individual components represent individual standing waves, which cannot be considered life even though they store energy. It is the combination and interaction of two that gives it both sustainability and direction as a unit.

            Each circle acts like one of two “gametes” that must combine properly with each other to make the “seed” fertile. They are the mono-processes that have a “correct” direction relative to each other that allows them to couple just like electric and magnetic waves each have inherently “correct” vector directions (in accordance with the right-hand rule). For the purpose of relating the correct direction to events in everyday life, the holomorphic process model breaks the circle into four phases (separation, projection, reflection, and reunification).

            By observing life in action, we can recognize each phase of this process at every level and verify that it is “correct”, i.e. it resonates and supports life. In fact, it has been used as a guide throughout history in the form of mythology, expressed as the “hero’s journey” – the quest for enlightenment. Joseph Campbell relates all enduring myths from all cultures to the “monomyth”, which he lays out as separation, initiation, return. It’s the same process, but Campbell combined projection and reflection into one word, “initiation”. And he explains how the myths warn against trying to go back or refusing the return. There are plenty of examples of how processes that try to operate in the opposite direction die out or lead to crises.  I’ll discuss this in the last section, Evidence of the Holomorphic Process. Thus it can be used as a guide to tell us which way is “up” or “forward” (the direction after Young’s “turn” that supports life and results in a rise in consciousness) and which way is “down” or “backward”.

The torus and the helix of life

            In addition to accounting for the two processes, a torus model can also account for the apparent separation of spacetime (the unified field) into space and time. Here’s how:

            When using a 2-D circle to represent a cycle, we normally consider the end of one cycle to be the same point on the circle as the beginning. But that’s not really the case in spacetime because the end is shifted in time with respect to the beginning. So it would be more appropriate to use a helix, which clearly has an up-and-down or forward-and-backward direction depending on how you orient at it. If you were to draw lines to represent a vortex spiraling into a torus and follow it through the center, out and around for several cycles, you would see a helix.

            The holomorphic process model is simply a way to label one cycle of this helix, with four words: separation, projection, reflection and reunification. The name of the fourth step is reunification rather than return because the model represents a real physical entity that appears to remain unchanged even though it has progressed in time, so we see it as being reunified or renormalized. In effect, it becomes a newer version of its “former self” each time the intersection of the helix with cross-sectional plane moves “up” or “forward” and aligns with the previous version. And that is why it is appropriate to model living beings that evolve.

Expanding consciousness

            Another way to look at the model is by starting with a flash of light and considering quantum particle as being the surface of an expanding sphere of light. As a particle model, it is modeled as two other cyclic phenomena (angular momentum and spin) like a two-axis gimbal that has a “particular” size in space and is distinct from its surroundings. But as light, we would model it as two coupled waves. According to the probability interpretation, it already exists as a particle in potentia and were we to observe it, it would appear to have “collapsed” to that particular size. The problem with that is, if the flash of light were considered to be a regular spherical wavefront, it would expand radially outward and in any amount of time be physically larger than before. Therefore, an observation would have to collapse the “outer sphere of light” into its own center. And light as we know it in the form of photons doesn’t do that. There would have to be a reflector, like a physical mirror in order for the light to turn around.

            So rather than a “flash of light”, we would have to be considered it to be the unified field – the undifferentiated essence that doesn’t move but is implicit to the universe – as opposed to the explicit form that can be measured (photons).  In that case, we might consider our minds to play the role of reflector. And the reflection happens the moment we make an observation, which transforms our “outer space” (images of the physical world) into “inner space”. I use the word “transforms” rather than “brings” our “outer space” into “inner space” because it doesn’t move; it just happens in no time. The information “outside” reshapes the mind of the observer who is “inside”, giving it a broader perspective and expanded consciousness – represented by the “surface” of the torus.

Toward practical application in life

            Regardless of how you get to where you are in life, eventually something happens (either positive of negative) that makes you realize that life has taken you somewhere (by an action or process). So you can model life (a process) as a vehicle (a complex physical “thing”). Then you can look at your vehicle and compare it to other people’s vehicles and wonder why yours runs better or worse than anyone else’s. Or maybe you look back and try to find the “road” that your vehicle took you down to get to where you are. Arthur Young did both, but he made it clear that there is no “road”. Instead, it is more like a flight-path that is not physical but can be illustrated on a map, which he called the “arc”. He looked at the vehicle and noticed how it had changed in a stepwise fashion, experiencing quantum-leap metamorphic transformations as it proceeded on life’s journey. Then he analyzed it and identified the seven waypoints along the journey where the major transformations had occurred.

            The “arc” map even showed the vehicle-manufacturing part of the process. It started at the top of a hill and each step in the assembly process was moved along automatically (suggesting no need for an external vehicle-maker), as if it was “falling” into darkness (loss of freedom). Near the bottom of the hill, the vehicle had developed its engine (“a hypothetical monad”, “a quantum of action”, “a ghost in the machine”, or “a spark of life” all mentioned on pg. 46), already idling and on the tracks that led to the turning point at the bottom of the “arc”.  

            A few points that I found important were

  1. The “vehicle” isn’t really a “live” vehicle until it has an “engine” that can move or self-motivate it. He said, “Light is pure action” (pg. 11) and later discussed the importance of proper timing as a key factor in the origin of life (pg. 49). So I interpret the “engine” to be a unit of action that is self-sustaining and therefore properly timed.
  2. The vehicle wouldn’t actually move unless it had direction: a purpose or destination, which he identified with a very profound statement (also on pg. 11) that “light is not seen; it is seeing”, which is an action. So the destination is a state of seeing, i.e. insight or conscious awareness.
  3. Although the first turn or “bounce” launches the vehicle automatically, the rest of the flight must be intentional, i.e. self-controlled and directed to the next waypoint. Considering the number of waypoints from nuclear particle to human life, it is a very long flight and requires a lot of patience.
  4. And most importantly, the vehicle is “living” because it can reverse entropy by learning to find its way and learning the dance (timing and attitude, i.e. direction).

The holomorphic process

            So how does this help us live in alignment with the unified field? First, it tells us we have to direct ourselves to the next waypoint. That is where the torus model and holomorphic process come in. First you must realize that a torus is a physical model – a “vehicle” that helps us to visualize the process. And the points that I want to make are: how it serves to model the process to reverse entropy, allowing us to harness and store energy; and more importantly, how that “free energy” provides power… and can be wasted in the form of force.

            In terms of physics and mathematics, force = energy divided by distance. So force is associated with distance, i.e. separateness. Power is a unit of action; power = energy divided by time, measured in Joules per second or watts and is therefore associated with time. David R. Hawkins discusses this in his book Power vs. Force. He says, “Because force automatically creates counter-force, its effect is limited by definition… Power, on the other hand, is still. It’s like a standing wave that doesn’t move.” He uses gravity as an example, but like gravity, the unified field doesn’t move. “Its power moves all objects within its field but the gravity field [or unified field] itself does not move.” (pg. 132) The same could be said about truth.


            So picture a group of people trying to find a win/win solution in a spherical room. The spherical shape represents the first harmonic in three dimensions because everyone has organized (in harmony at some frequency, perhaps a very high harmonic) for the purpose of finding a solution. They all have separateand perhaps very different (not harmonic) ideas. Imagine that they stand at the center of the room facing outward and projecting those ideas out for everyone to “see”. Now imagine all these ideas as visual images projected onto the outer surface of the sphere (a screen model). In order for them all to see all of the ideas regardless of where they are facing, imagine the images revolving horizontally around the screen. Obviously it takes some amount of time for everyone to see all of the ideas, so the power that we hope to obtain from this effort has already separated into energy (the vibrational images) divided by time (temporal units – the inverse of temporal frequency).

            Next, the people must reflect on all of the ideas. Reflecting is a form of turning and is what creates the potential for the sphere to turn into a torus. This is not automatic. It requires the people to open their minds to new ideas. To visualize this, imagine that the images that are revolving horizontally around the outer screen begin moving up vertically as each idea “rises up” in each person’s consciousness, resulting in a spiral motion upward. When new ideas resonate with each person, the projections reach the top of the sphere. Their open minds are represented by the path for the spiral of information to move down from the top and into the center (for reunification) forming a vortex that transforms the sphere into a torus.

            Because they are ideas, they flow right back out the bottom of the torus (separation) and project out to the outer surface again for everyone to see. But now they form a new pattern – an image of a solution that is produced by the synergistic combination of all resonant parts of the individual ideas. Then, the people reflect on the potential solution and if that solution is not the “true solution” this new image interacts with any dissonance remaining in the peoples’ minds (reunification). So they separate and project new ideas (or new versions of their old ideas), which rise up and around again and continue to give the new image its form and clarity. With patience and perseverance, they can arrive at the true win/win solution. 

            I think this is also helpful to decrease the tendency for one person to fixate on his own ideas. It clarifies the importance of patience and maintaining an open mind. Although my idea resonates with everything I know (so they seem perfect to me), some of the details are likely to be out of harmony with the true solution. But I won’t see that unless I reflect on other ideas. If I do so humbly (i.e. without fixating) then any parts of my ideas that don’t resonate with the true solution will be met with some other idea and interact with them in a way that informs the error into a shape that I can see and make the necessary modification. Therefore, the details of who was right and who was wrong no longer seems to matter. “Wrong” ideas can be seen as important parts of the process.

            Free energy? 

            So how does this relate to free energy? First let me say this: just like the adage, “freedom isn’t free,” I submit that “free energy isn’t free” in the sense that nobody has to work for it or sacrifice (trade) for it. The word “free” just means it has been freed up for use because although it was required in the formation process, once the metamorphosis has occurred, it is no longer needed for that purpose and can be put to better use. However, using it for another purpose will be a trade off because, in the case of nuclear binding energy for example, the atom that you take it from must lose its particulate form and separate again, i.e. fission. As a nuclear engineer, I don’t yet see how a device can harness usable energy out of the unified field like those discussed in the Thrive videos, but I’m working on it. But it is still an important topic I’d like to discuss as it applies to our personal power to effect change.

            When you gain free energy in the psyche, you know it because you feel it. You suddenly get a feeling of awakening – the Ah-ha! moment – a feeling of an epiphany and a charge of energy. It is a feeling of being raised up to a higher level of awareness when the details fall into place, the extra details fall away as byproducts of the process and you rise above all of the differences. As a member of a group you feel reunited with the people and you feel a collective “high”. This reunification is the fourth step in the holomorphic process (separation, projection, reflection, reunification). You feel the power, i.e. the energy that had been divided by the time it took to experience the process. Remember, energy divided by time is power and you feel “empowered” to take on the next challenge. This power is in the form of the skill and willingness to take the actions necessary to solve a problem. In the words of psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, you enter the Flow zone. “Flow” is a state that you experience when you have the right level of skill (not too much and not too little) and the willingness to accept and meet challenges in your life. It produces a sense of movement in the right direction because it feeds itself and supports its own life.

Evidence of the Holomorphic Process

            In my yet-to-be-published book Holomorphosis and the Hologenetic Universe, I describe how the holomorphic process and its effects are evident in many areas of life, starting with our daily routine: after waking up we separate from home in the morning, and project ourselves out into the world to meet the challenges of our vocations (our daily hero’s journey). Once we gain whatever is needed for survival, we reflect on home and return home to unwind and reunify with our family.

            If you live in the flow, the feelings that are associated with each of these phases are evident. Again, I label them awakening-high-challenge-unwinding, in that order. If you love your job and family, you wake up every morning with joy and enthusiasm about getting to work and challenging yourself or tackling any challenges that present themselves. Afterward, you spend the rest of the day relaxing and finally falling sleeping, which is when your body experiences a mini fall to allow the process to reestablish physical quantum units for you to use the next day when the process repeats.

            Waking up is the event that corresponds to the turn. It’s a holotropic metamorphosis that I call “Holomorphosis”. “Holotropic” means turning as a whole. I took it from Stanislav Grof’s book title: The Holotropic Mind.  In my book I discuss how the feelings that come from every day turning experiences can be used as clues to whether we are flowing in alignment with or against the flow of the field. Each turn affects attitude (meaning the way we feel) in a way that depends on our attitude, (meaning our direction). As Young explained, the process requires a destination in order to progress, and we choose our destination with our attitude. The “right” destination is to a state of increased freedom, which is a state of conscious awareness. That is our destiny. But, as can be seen in the torus model, the journey is not linear and there is a period in every cycle that requires us to fall a little, to recharge enough for the next step. That’s the part that requires no effort on our part.

            Our power is what motivates us to take actions but our attitude defines the direction that those actions take us. In the book I provide historical evidence that society has always taken the direction that is opposite to the direction that would give it life as a “superorganism” (for lack of a better word). “Superorganism” is what I call the “being” that the holomorphic process suggests we will become at Arthur Young’s step 8, which is missing from his arc. It’s a new “kingdom” that is as different from humans as humans are from animals. The quantum change between this kingdom and the next is what I call “Hologenesis”. It was named by Daniele Rosa, an Italian zoologist around 1909 and I hope to revive it as a serious theory. 

            So a superorganism is not the entity we know as society in general, which is usually a selfish, destructive state-person. Historically, once a society becomes unified, it always allows people in authority to use the collective power for personal agenda. As a Commander in the US Navy, I’ve seen and experienced first hand the feeling that comes from having authority and I know how tempting it is to use that collective power for personal agenda. But as a husband, married to only one woman (for 40 years now) I’ve experienced the power of love, which motivates me to use personal power to feed the process. Why? Because it results in more love and more personal power. And nothing can take that kind of power away.

            Love is the feeling that you get from truth, which brings us full circle: I explain in the book that the “right” direction is the direction of truth. I open the first chapter of my book by relating the concept of Truth (capital “T” – implicit to the universe) to events that actually happen (explicit expressions – tidbits of truth) and can’t un-happen. Once an event happens, it is what it is and no matter what you try to do, you can’t make it not-true. It becomes written in the torus, some call the Akashic record. But you can use it to make something that is not based on (or centered on) truth appear to be true by projecting words (since words actually form event particles), and “spinning them” into chains like polymers wrapping the untruth up into lies and propaganda. A certain amount of spin is necessary and useful for structure (like nuclear particles, shelter and protection), but truth is the only thing that is true, so if the chain of words does not have a reflection in truth at its heart, (the metaphor of the “living dead” vampire) it cannot survive being challenged (e.g. honest scientific testing as a stake through a vampire’s heart).

            Authority on the other hand is a vector that points in the wrong direction. It can come from a real unity or a false unity, created for example by tricking people into thinking that, because we are all created equal, we ARE equal in every way. Rather than having equal rights, they convince those who refuse to accept the challenges in life that they can and should have the same… everything… even without working for it. But that is not how the process works. “God helps those who help themselves.” The process provides goods to those who provide for themselves. It moves us “up” the ladder only after we make the turn and provides what we need to accelerate our progress as we mature. By giving too much to those who refuse to participate in the process, we actually hurt them. We prevent them from reaching the turning point in their own lives.

            Maturity is a very important concept to include in the discussion, especially because it separates good, effective leaders from poor ones (see Steven Covey’s maturity continuum in The Seven Habits…). It is not as distinct as Young’s “substages” but maturity also refers to a level or a state. And it is not about being highly enlightened. It is simply related to our “position” on the maturity continuum and on the Flow diagram (challenge vs skill). Rather than having the skill to bring people together to find win/win solutions, immature and unskilled people who are in positions of authority react to situations with the projection of force, which creates separation. Notice how this sequence (unification, projection, separation) is the opposite of the first three steps of holomorphic process (separation, projection, reflection, reunification) and skips the reflection step. Reflection doesn’t happen until after the crisis, which always results when the opposing forces destroy the hard-earned work of civilization. Rather than the holomorphic cycle of awakening-high-challenge-unwinding, the result is a morphoholic cycle as crisis-high-awakening-unraveling. This sequence is described by Strauss and Howe in their book The Fourth Turning exactly like that, as generational attitudes of distinct eras in history: the crisis, the high, the awakening and the unraveling. They document how this cycle has always led to the next crisis. And they relate each era to a societal mood by naming the archetypes: hero, artist, nomad and prophet. I discuss these in the book and relate them to Jungian archetypes, but that’s beyond the scope of this paper.  

            In conclusion, I submit that the next phase of life – the 8th phase of life that follows Young’s seven – will be a major genetic transformation of humans into Holomorphs – beings of light who truly realize their interconnectedness with the whole cosmos, who exercise self-control and don’t feel the need to control others. I’m not sure how many Holomorphs are currently living among us as humans, but there are certainly plenty of Morphoholics, i.e. people who are addicted to the energy that is morphed into the physical world and therefore failed to reach the seventh grade in three successive lifetimes (giving them the “number of the beast”, i.e. 666, from Revelation 13).

            We hold these truths to be self-evident:

  • Truth is the only thing that is true.
  • Truth will set you free.
  • If I’m lyin’ I’m dyin’

Appendix: How the unified field transforms into a quantum particle

            Although quantum mechanics is the most successful and powerful theory in physics, it is thought to be impossible to present in terms of a visual model, like the Rutherford-Bohr model of the atom in which a nuclear core is orbited by planetary electrons. That model still works for most practical purposes, but when you look at individual quantum particles like an electron, you can’t treat them as solid, spherical particles. They must be treated as a superposition of standing waves, “eigenstates” of energy that don’t even take form unless they are observed (or somehow measured and thereby “realized”). So rather than trying to visualize physical waves, physicists refer to them as probability waves. But for most people, including myself, the concept of a probability wave is very hard to understand because it is not something that I can visualize. The solution I found is to take a step back and ignore the word probability and focus on the wave.

            A wave is just a cyclic phenomenon and it is easy to visualize or model a cycle as a two-dimensional circle with a reference point on the circle to mark the beginning and end of each cycle. Two circles around orthogonal axes that share the same center point (i.e. a cross) form a three-dimensional sphere and a sphere is what comes to mind when you think of a particle. So it seems like that would be an appropriate model for a quantum particle. But it’s not. A quantum particle exhibits two different kinds of cyclic processes, two types of angular momentum: one is orbital and the other is spin. So in order to model both of these we need two circles; but one circle has to be shown to orbit around the other, separating the whole into a duality. And they must be coupled together to make the duality into a whole. Clearly, a sphere does not meet these requirements, but a torus does.

            A torus, like a donut, is formed by two circles: a circle that defines its central “hole” and one that defines the circumference of the donut itself. Not only are the two circles on orthogonal axes, but the axes themselves do not cross at a common origin. However, if each of the axes are drawn as part of their own three-dimensional coordinate system, these “reference frames” can be “coupled” by a common axis or “dimension”.  I added the straight arrow in Figure 1 to represent the direction of an electric current that would correspond to the direction of the horizontal rotation. Figure 2 shows the complete torus and the vector that represents the direction of a magnetic field around the torus.

            Here, the “donut hole” represents the physical particle with spin and the donut represents the non-physical part of the field – the circle that orbits the particle, giving it orbital angular momentum. It also illustrates the fact that particles exhibit polarity (positive and negative charge) and why there is no such thing as a magnetic monopole.

            Light is an electromagnetic phenomenon quantized into a single unit, which we call a photon. But light is not the same as the unified field. The unified field does not move so it does not have linear or angular momentum.  This corresponds to a Higgs Boson. So a spherical model would work just fine. But when it interacts with either a photon or particle, it can become polarized, which aligns the electric field lines in a particular direction giving it angular momentum and thereby transforming it into a quantum particle.   

            According to quantum physics, an observation “collapses the quantum wave function”. But it also retains its wave nature. This makes much more sense if it is modeled as a torus, because it collapses only at a point where the information is “swallowed”. Previously swallowed information, which would have formed a quantum particle’s former self, would remain collapsed in its own center. The “new version” of the particle would then be the old version modulated by or “convolved” with and reshaped by new information. That “new information” is simply a quantity of vibrational energy that was “outside” of the “old version” of the particle.

            As a result, what started as a particle distinct from its surroundings morphs into one unit. I call it a “holomorph”; it has experienced “holomorphosis”. According to Young’s arc, it has reached a turning point of a sub-arc (at the lowest level of the kingdom arc) and morphed into a quantum particle. But remember, “particle” is just a physical model. In truth, it is still a unit of light that was constrained in size and position by observation; it just lost some of its freedom of action.
