The scientific concept of the “Fifth Dimension” was advanced by Swedish physicist Oskar Klein. Einstein’s theory of relativity gives us four dimensions – longitude, latitude, altitude, and time. Klein’s theory proposed a fifth dimension, unseen by humans where the forces of gravity and electromagnetism unite to create a simple but graceful theory of the fundamental forces in nature.
While I was employed at NBS/NIST in Boulder, Colorado, we had contracted with Professor Neil Ashby to do the relativity needed for GPS, and we published several papers together. After I retired in 1992 and during our time serving a mission for our church in Cote d’Ivoire, I was asked by John Wiley and Sons to write a collage text about GPS and Precise Timing. I started that when I got back to the states, but then felt impressed to do some experimentation in Unified Field Theory, which Einstein had not finished before he died.
While doing this we found experimental evidence of a “Fifth Dimension” and we learned that when we pray we couple into that dimension. We showed experimental evidence of diallel-field lines. During some energy density experiments we were able to modify gravity. More detailed information concerning these studies can be found in my book “Its About Time.” Chapter 21 relates the seven experiments we have done to date validating this theory, and in Chapter 22 I share that when we were born as children of God in a premortal epoch. We were given a diallel-field line connection to God that is always there.
During the sixties, there was an explosion of attention given to the “Fifth Dimension” consciousness. It presently is an excepted concept. In other words, The “Fifth Dimension” is more than just the name of a 1969 vocal band.
The Power of Meditation
On November 5th and 6th of 2018, I was interviewed in our home regarding my life’s work by Dr. Elizabeth Donley for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Dr. Donley pointed out to me that there is a great number of people out there who are interested in meditation.
Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa who is an American physician and medial researcher in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease, strongly advocates meditation. I was so impressed with Dr. Khalsa’s insights that I wrote a report on his book: Brain Longevity; Regenerate Your Concentration, Energy, and Learning Ability for a Lifetime of Peak Mental Performance. I refer to his work 16 times in my book, “It’s About Time.”
I would like to share some of Dr. Khalsa’s insight in regard to meditation.
Dr. Khalsa has a simple and profound method of meditating:
His meditation exercises were so successful that he offered a course for doctors getting ready to take their board exams. He says, “I showed all of them how to meditate, and how to apply the mental training techniques of peak performance. . . .the doctors taking my course had over a 90-percent pass rate, compared to the national average of about 50-percent..”
His guidelines for how to meditate are very simple:
• Find a quiet place with no distractions;
• Allow 10 to 20 minutes; don’t use an alarm;
• Sit comfortably and relax all of your muscles from bottom of toes to the top of your head;
• Stop all internal dialog and mind chatter;
• To help you stop thinking and calm down, silently repeat a pleasant word or phrase — like peace, love, that has religious significance;
• Don’t be concerned if thoughts intrude; inhale and bring yourself back, relax, and meditate;
• When you finish, sit quietly for a minute or two, and try to merge your calm state of mind with your normal outlook.
“That’s all there is to it. If it sounds simple, that’s because it is.”
The Importance of Meditation in Dealing With Stress
He has also unveiled a very important cause of mind and memory degeneration, and gives ways to avoid that cause. His claims have been clinically validated, and help us to:
• think better,
• become more productive and optimistic,
• overcome age-associated memory loss,
• increase our brain’s strength and vitality, and
• meet the world with energy and joy.
Stress Management and the Cortisol Connection
Dr. Khalsa points out that “Cortisol is one of the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. It’s secreted in response to stress — the natural “fight or flight” mode. In moderate amounts, cortisol is not harmful and is secreted for our protection. “But when produced in excess, day after day — as a result of chronic, unrelenting stress — this hormone is so toxic to the brain that it kills and injures brain cells by the billions,” reports Dr. Khalsa. Hence, we see the need for being at peace in the midst of the storms of life. Dr. Khalsa further reveals that the secretion of excess cortisol is a major cause of memory loss problems. He also believes that this “is one of the primary causes of Alzheimer’s disease.”
Dr. Khalsa points out that “Wisdom comes naturally to older people. It is the natural product of experience. Our neurons are biologically built for wisdom. As the years of our lives. . . unfold. . ., each of our neurons. . . sprout. . . new dendrites, and. . .[make] new dendritic connections with other neurons. . . Living long is the only way to achieve this abundance of multi-branched dendrites, with billions of connections.” Hence, we see that wisdom can come with age if we haven’t suffered serious degeneration and if we have used our brains to process worthwhile information.
The Power of Prayer
I was also happy to read of Dr. Khalsa’s great support of the power of prayer. He has a whole section on “The Healing Science of Prayer.” He points out some excellent documented sources of the power of prayer in healing and in moving one into a healthy meditative state. He prays for his patients, and believes that health care is just that — truly caring for his patients. Chapter 22 of It’s About time, is devoted to this most important topic.
Dr. Khalsa categorizes four kinds of prayer: (1) colloquial conversation with God; (2) petitioning God; (3) ritualistic prayers (employing a prepared script); and (4) meditative prayer. He says that all four can “elicit the meditative state, and the relaxation response. “It appears, however, as if the formal meditative prayer — which involves listening to God more than talking to Him — is the most effective style of prayer for creating a subjective perception of closeness to God. Survey respondents were twice as likely to feel a ‘strong relationship with God’ if they used the meditative style. . . The style that least elicited a subjective sense of connection to God was the petitionary style.”
Meditation and prayer are beneficial for our mental, spiritual as well as our physical health. Citing the work of Dr. Lissa Rankin in my book, she shows that the relaxation response turns on the bodies healing powers, while the stress response turns them off. Prayer has been scientifically proven to be effectual, and Chapter 5 shares an incredible prayer miracle with the story of our Grand-daughter being miraculously found on Mount Hood after being stranded there for six-days and nights.
Prayer, the most oft’ repeated commandment in the scriptures, is our means of communicating with the God of our fathers by way of the “Fifth Dimension”. The power of prayer cannot be underestimated and we are blessed as we let meditation and prayer be part of our lives. As I have said, the connection to God is always there, and all sincere prayers are heard and answered in a way that God knows is best for us. “Prayer is our umbilical cord to God with no maintenance.”
