91. Gevin Giorbran published his book Everything Forever: Learning to See Timelessness in December 2006. His website has lots of great ideas, check it out. Unbelievably, March 2020 is already the twelfth anniversary of his death, but I still hear regularly from fans of his book. As many of you know, just before his death Gevin asked me to take over responsibility for his project and it has been my honour to do so. Thank you Gevin for your genius!

92. A white chalice to take into your dream. A cornstarch monster gives the illusion of life because, as Schrodinger said, "all is waves". And we are always each observing the same wave, intimately connected through quantum fields in the fifth dimension. 

93. A newborn baby is 78% water! Physicists say we are all connected by quantum fields. I like to imagine how we also are all connected through water.

94. Covid-19 has changed the working lives of so many. But what if we find we prefer this new arrangement? Environmentally, the planet is already seeing noticeable improvement. Staying home and supporting our local economies keeps us safer while we await a vaccine. Imagine that! A single virus mutation at some distant time in another species has the power to launch our universe off on a new trajectory within Everett's Many Worlds. That's the power of a point. #westartwithapoint

95. I'm hoping as people get used to the idea of protecting others with face masks that we will see more and personalization, keeping others safer and letting their personal style shine through with whatever adornments and decorations they want to add. But for those who can, staying home more is such a great idea: with modern connection speeds there's no reason you can't have a nice face-to-face with whoever you want. I'm not set up for home mixing yet, but once I leave my Dolby theatrical studio behind I'll continue with my same work from my sister and brother-in-law's basement, and be spending way less on gas. Works for me! By the way, I just finished the complete audio post and 5.1 theatrical mix on a mixed martial arts movie called Cagefighter: Worlds Collide. Check it out! 

96. Thank you to @circuitdoll for giving me permission to use this image from her feed for this slide. It's easy to get bogged down in the endless possibilities of Everett's Many Worlds, but physically we each get to experience only the universe we are in. Does that mean we are each on a solitary journey? No, we are all in this together. As physicist Sean Carroll explains: "There aren't separate wavefunctions for each particle. There is only one wavefunction: the wavefunction of the universe." And like a ballerina balancing on her toes, this fine balance that allows the matter we see around us to exist will maintain its dynamic tension from the beginning to the end of the universe.

97. Consciousness and gravity are equally singular. Right now we are all falling towards Omega at a terminal velocity which we call the speed of light. Consciousness, gravity, God, doesn't matter what you call it, there is something that is always there. Kip Thorne calls it The Bulk. Tegmark calls it The Ultimate Ensemble. Teilhard called it the Omega Point.

98. Once again, thank you to @circuitdoll for letting me use this image as the backdrop. The delicate balance of forces and constants that define our universe are like a beautiful balancing act, a ballerina on her toes. Think of that, balancing on a series of Planck-frame-sized points in the fifth dimension, creating a unique 4D worldline from the beginning to the end. Physicist Sean Carroll, like Gevin and I, has suggested that "before" and "after" the universe is the same thing, a return to symmetry. So when we reach the end, we fall back to the "floor". Like I always say, everything fits together in the end.

99. I believe the cornstarch monster (example pictured here) teaches us that we recognize life as a vibration, and that is true at all levels of the universe down to the Planck length... as the prophet Schrodinger tried to convince us all almost a century ago, when he said "I insist upon the view that all is waves".

100. In 1989 14 women were gunned down in what has been, up to now, Canada's worst mass shooting in history. Those women never got to see their best future self within Everett's Many Worlds. Now, in April 2020, that record has been broken, and Canada mourns more senseless loss, as branches are brutally snapped off within our probability space.

81. "The universe, according to quantum physics, has no single past, or history. The fact that the past takes no definite form means that observations you make on a system in the present affect its past." - Stephen Hawking #westartwithapoint

82. There's a clear connection between the rising acceptance of Simulation Theory, and the embrace of Everett's Many Worlds by mainstream physicists like Nobel laureate Kip Thorne. Both represent a mathematical and geometric understanding of the underpinnings of the quantum world, where "bits become its" as Wheeler was heard to say. And both still represent something amazing and beautiful, that is worthy of our praise and wonder.

83. I heard Keith Urban say "the only thing that's really real is now". Very true. How else could we have a universe made of particles and still understand what Schrodinger meant when he insisted that "all is waves". And because we are all here in the same universe, we are all observing the same universal wavefunction, and in that sense we are all really just one thing: the universe observing itself.

84."Imagining the Zeroth Dimension" continues to be one of my most popular videos. The idea that we can think of the underlying symmetry state our universe or any other comes from as adding up to a big beautiful zero was explored so well be Gevin Girobran in his book and website In the 1920s, physicist Paul Dirac developed an equation describing electron behaviour, for which he theorized the underlying symmetry must require there to be an "anti-electron", which he called a positron. A few years later, positrons were duly discovered in cosmic rays, and today they benefit the millions of people who get their medical diagnoses from positron emission tomography (PET) scans.

85. I'm still waiting for my campaign to rename the beginning of our universe The Big Bong to catch on. :) My "strangely musical" approach to visualizing the dimensions fits to what the quantum physicists say: information equals reality. Think of the beginning of the universe, they tell us, as being like the striking of a giant bell. The 4D worldline we are observing is part of a continuous recording that began back then. But that recording has a fluid past and future, according to quantum mechanics. So the recorder is continually able to jump from one possible future and past to another as the recording is being made. Genes, memes, atoms, fields, all are like repetitive songs made from the timeless vortices defined by the shape and position of the Big Bong.

86. What if we build bowls that reflect off each other up to our electromagnetic ceiling (the ionosphere), place them around the planet, and create the subharmonic equivalent of the horrible squeal of a mic too close to the speaker? When feedback happens you get more than you put in. When that feedback is down at the subharmonic resonance of the planet, you have a wave of sufficient punch as to create a new energy source around the world.

87. If we had a device capable of tuning into a 7.83 Hz wave ( the fundamental frequency of our planet's Schumann Resonance), that energy could be used to bounce a device into the air, driving a piston as the device falls down. I believe this is a form of a gravity pump I'm really describing here, something already known to sci-fi fans. Free energy for the world.

88. "If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." - Nikola Tesla.

89. Thank you to lc_cherubim_goddess1133 for letting me layer the Tao and my words over her imagery. Terence McKenna and David Jay Brown both talked about us being drawn towards a perfected future self with an inexorable force that is very much like gravity. To which I have added, the version of me that dies tomorrow exerts very little force on me today, while the version of me that lasts the longest naturally has more of a pull from the future.

90. Here's a little to flowerpot to paste on your dream. #westartwithapoint

71. Looking out into space is looking back in time. "Now" includes the photon's perspective, where its emission from a distant star and its reception at your retina are simultaneous events, as we discuss in my video Light Has No Speed. So our Planck-frame-sized "now" includes not only our mind-bogglingly large 3D space, it also includes what Einstein was thinking about when he said the distinction between past present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

72. Could an all-powerful God make a rock so heavy They couldn't lift it? That's the engine set in motion at the striking of the Big Bong. The eternal pulse that drives the Universe is within us all, because we are all observing the same Universal Wavefunction.

73. Schrodinger: "I insist upon the view that all is waves". The geometry of our simulation has a frame rate defined by Planck's constant. But moving from one frame to the next is more like the sample rate in digital audio. The closer you waveform's vibration gets to half of the sample rate, the less accurately you are able to represent it, an echo of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. And yet, within the "Now" of our flipbook universe we see a universe made not of waves and interference patterns across the dimensions, but of point-like particles being pushed in two dimensions at right angles to each other. Virtually everything in the universe adheres to the same infinitely scalable field equations, that's how simple reality is. Right now, out of all possible universes we are observing this one. Because of this decoherence, this uncoupling from probability, you and everyone on the planet are observing the same wave, each from our own perspective, and in that way we are all One Thing.

As the point describing a wave calculated by Everett's Universal Wavefunction, we return to a viewpoint that was embraced by the God-fearing God-loving men and women who pioneered quantum physics. Consciousness is fundamental. And the fact that we don't feel it in our bones that general relativity and electromagnetism, and the hologram we are observing all reside with the fifth dimension is part of a 20th-century campaign to declare all religious and mystical thought as delusion. Would you like to meet a scientist willing to acknowledge forces from beyond our spacetime reality could be using extra-dimensional gravity to cause us to move on different trajectories with Everett's Many Worlds? Please read Nobel laureate Kip Thorne's The Science of Interstellar. #westartwithapoint

74. With, Gevin Giorbran gifted the world with a beautiful set of ideas. You can go to  if you'd like a PDF to help support his memory. The sacred ideal of a perfectly balanced underlying symmetry state has come under scientific suspicion of late, but we humans have always tended to support the idea of a loving creator that exists timelessly. Mathematically, we come from Tegmark's Ultimate Ensemble. Knowing that fact makes our presence as observers of this universe no less sacred, no less worthy of praise and wonder at the sheer audacity of it all! Omega is love. That's what God means to me.

75. "Consciousness is a singular for which there is no plural... the total number of minds in the universe is one." - Erwin Schrodinger

76. "I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness." - Max Planck

77. This is the essence of Wheeler's self-excited circuit. Two forces at right angles to one another (in the fourth and fifth dimension, a.k.a. time and imaginary time) create the 3D shapes defined by modulating a point of indeterminate size to create the waves of our reality, all of which obey Maxwell's infinitely scalable field equations.

78. This screengrab is from Eugene Khutoryansky's excellent physics video channel at YouTube, here's a link. Over that I superimposed the same simple drawing of two waves at right angles to one another producing a spiral which we see above.

Understanding that the fourth and fifth dimension are just as spatial as the other dimensions, even though our 3D physical world only gets to experience them in one direction - as time and imaginary time - lets us see how the fifth dimension is always just "outside" of spacetime, with its additional degree of freedom allowing the fifth dimension to include the probability space of Everett's Many Worlds.

79. Wherever we go within the multiverse of Everett's Many Worlds, we all go there together... because we are observing the same wave function, the same universe. And as Schrodinger said "consciousness is a singularity phasing between all beings".

80. I saw this quote on twitter from @ElliotG78 and loved it: "My favourite tv moment was when I got voted off the weakest link, and host cornelia frances said 'I understand you like golf. Well, your teammates have decided your game was below par' to which I said 'that's a good thing' and they had to do a retake and change the script for her."

61. Genes, Memes, and Spimes, time crystals and gravity waves. All ways of thinking about the fourth dimension in a timeless spatial way. #westartwithapoint

62. So many great minds of the 20th century insisted that free will is an illusion. That point of view works great if your life is going well, but can impart a feeling of hopelessness for those facing adversity. Think of a time in your own life where you said "hell no, that's not going to happen". The alternate outcomes still exist out there within Everett's universal wavefunction, and you got here by a combination of your free will, chance, and the actions of others.

63. "Everything that we regard as existing postulates consciousness." - Planck
"I insist that all is waves." - Schrodinger
You are the point observing Everett's universal wavefunction. This is both a mathematical and a spiritual approach to visualizing reality, whichever interests you more.

64. I would recommend all school chidren be shown Neil Turok's brilliant presentation The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything. It explains so much, and puts our place in the universe in the right perspective. Imagining how something as amazing as our universe can be generated from a point moving in spacetime to describe the 5D universal wavefunction has been my thing too, our course.

65. Becoming homeless and moving into my sister and brother-in-law's basement was my November, how was yours? I look forward to the happy tomorrow that I know is still on its way.

66. I see the multiverse concept takes some heat in a review of Sean Carroll's new book in Scientific American this month. Picturing Everett's Universal Wavefunction and all its possible outcomes as a single timeless whole still seems like the obvious connection to simulation theory, which does have huge support lately.

67. Here we are in Turok's messy middle, in much the same way David Jay Brown describes it. There is our version that lasts the longest, and through retrocausality it pulls us towards it with the changes it makes in the present, as Stephen Hawking said it could. And epigenetics shows that we can change where that future bifurcation to us not being here lies within the multiverse. It's all a lovely circle, John Wheeler's self-excited circuit, humming along at the Planck length.

68. Richard Dawkins described to us so beautifully the "River Out of Eden" that represents the genetic connection we all share back to the first chemical chain that engaged with its fifth-dimensional probability space of Everett's Many Worlds - where the equations of general relativity and electromagnetism are resolved.

69. No matter what happens, we all go together in the multiverse. I wish you all the very best for the coming year!

70. Imagine each of these triangles, starting with the "now" triangle at the base, represents our Planck frame sample rate of the third dimension. As with digital audio, the closer you get to the sample rate the less well you are able to represent the information accurately, and most actions either happen instantaneously through entanglement, or as a result of repeating waves, like the ones in motion bo our Big Bon. Notice the downward pointing arrow? That's you, observing the universal wavefunction and all the rest of our physical reality in the fifth dimension, one Planck frame after another. I've added a little blob at the top left branch of the arrow to show how consciousness is fundamental, observing point-like particles from out of a sea of waves.
