About me

20130728_133231Updated 12/1/2021

My name is Dr. Theodore (Ted) J. St. John.

I am a retired U. S. Naval Officer (Commander, O5). Over a 30-year naval career I served as a nuclear submarine officer, a licensed senior reactor operator, Science Advisor and head of science and research at the Naval Dosimetry Center in Bethesda MD, head of radiation physics and radiology department at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth VA, second in command of the Naval Medical Research Unit in San Antonio, TX, and clinical radiation therapy medical physicist at Naval Medical Center San Diego, CA.

I have a dual BS in physics and electrical engineering from Jacksonville University, Jacksonville FL and Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne FL, an MS in physics from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, an MA in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College in Newport RI, and a Ph. D. in nuclear and radiological engineering (specialty in medical physics) from the University of Florida, Gainesville FL. I am currently enrolled (started in Fall II term 2021) as a graduate student in Theology with the Catholic Distance University (CDU). I chode the Catholic school because I was baptized as a Catholic. However, I quit going to church regularly when I started learning science, so now, as a sort of outsider, I see all branches and denominations of Christianity as one self-organized, self-sustaining, living being centered on the truth (expressed in body and Spirit as Jesus Christ).

It’s not that I need another college degree; I just know that it is important to investigate both sides of the story – the dramatic search for truth – and for a long time, I thought of religion in general as a form of mind control (emphasis on control), another tool used by the “deep state”. However, I confessed to myself that had not given religion a fair say in the matter. After just half a term in THEO 503 (Catholic Theological Tradition) I realized AGAIN how ignorant I am. Thank God I didn’t have enough faith to call myself an atheist. My ultimate goal now is to assimilate the two, to serve as Matchmaker and convince Sir Science and Lady Religion to get married. I intend to do it by proving that they are “two peas in a holomorphic pod.”

Another reason for enrolling in school is that I have my VA educational benefits (post-9/11 GI bill) and don’t want that to go to waste. So in effect, I am an independent scientific researcher and my affiliation is the US Veterans Network. I am registered as an Independent and rather than getting involved in politics, I am promoting holomorphic politics or “holotics”.  


I realized that I was part of the holomorphic process in 1992, when I envisioned a quantum particle as a spherical holographic image. It was a eureka moment that inspired me to understand, explain and prove that everything is light, that we are “Beings of light” and that our bodies are just vehicles that allow us to transform into consciousness. I already had a BS in physics, so I went back to school and got a master’s in physics in hopes that I would bring this newfound wisdom to light, no pun intended.  I was surprised to learn that I hadn’t discovered anything new. They already knew it (“they” being the people who understood quantum physics). But most of them didn’t seem to interpret it the way I did. To them, the particle/wave duality meant that everything, including light, is physical. It’s called the substance or material philosophy. So rather than being  “Beings of light”, we are made up of “units of energy”.

Although we covered Classical Mechanics, Wave Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics, we barely touched on Relativity theory. And Quantum Field Theory (QFT) was only mentioned. I wanted to know more but for various reasons, not the least of which was that the math was getting too hard, I got my Ph. D. in Medical Physics instead of something like QFT, Condensed Matter physics or Cosmology. The real reason was that the Navy would pay for my graduate school, but as a Radiation Health Officer, I had to choose a degree that fit the needs of the navy, and Medical Physics was it.

For the next 16 years, I continued contemplating foundational physics. It seemed like there was something about the way that fundamental concepts “set us up” and practically forced the physical, substance interpretation. The problem with that is that it spreads from the classrooms and labs into the world of everyday perception. That is where perception has become our reality.

In 2005, I had another eureka moment about the nature of time (see my article in Quest magazine, Timeless Epiphany) that units of measurement are what set us up (see The Nature of Time and Spacetime). The bottom line is that time doesn’t move like we are taught to think; instead, we move through time, i.e. we move through the process of life and just call it time. Then, nearly 10 years later, I finally came up with a model (The Unity of Space and Time) that I thought would blow the lid off of the big bang theory. But it was rejected for publication by a couple of journals. So I tried to simplify it or at least break it up into sections. The first section describes The Space-Time-Motion (STM) model. The next section was an explanation of time, called A Practical Perspective: It’s about time.

Finally, I was contacted by an editor from Archives of Physics Research and invited to publish in their open-access journal. So I gathered up everything I had learned and written and wrote The Holomorphic Process: Understanding the Holographic Nature of Reality as a Metamorphic Process and posted at viXra, along with my other papers. It was published in the Autumn 2018 and can be downloaded at here.

The purpose of this blog is just to put the information out there for your consideration, discussion and use. Feel free to take whatever you like. You don’t need my permission, but if you cite me and my work, you will help bring others together by getting rooted in the common ground – the term holomorphic process (the living movement) and the word holomorphosis (the seed). The more research I do, the more I find that my insights are already out there in different subspecialties, but there seems to be gaps between them that prevent them (the people working in those areas) from seeing the big picture. My goal is to bring them together and show that they are all in harmony with and participating in the same process.
