About me

20130728_133231My name is Theodore (Ted) J. St. John.

I am a retired U. S. Navy Radiation Health Officer (Commander, O5) and Medical Physicist. Over a 30-year naval career I served as a nuclear submarine officer, a licensed senior reactor operator, Science Advisor (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 an independent researcher, a volunteer adjunct senior research scientist in the Physics department, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and member of the UL Radiation Safety Committee.


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 transform us 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, so to speak.  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 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 we had been “set up”. I mean it seemed like there was something about the way that fundamental concepts “set us up” and practically forced the physical, substance interpretation. 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). And 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 and discussion. 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 from seeing the big picture. My goal is to bring them together and show that they are all in harmony with the same process.
