The paragraphs below each briefly explain specific aspects of the Integrated Theory of Consciousness. Following each paragraph are a number of works (suggested readings) that offer support for these concepts. For your convenience the links below will take you directly to the appropriate paperback unless otherwise indicated.


Evidence that information or consciousness should be included as a property of the basic fabric of the universe along with matter-energy-space-time. In the Integrated Theory of Consciousness the combination of information plus consciousness is being defined as Intelligence.

Evidence that the expansion of space implies more than just expansion of the universe. The swelling of space itself can actually microwarp space in the same sense that gravity warps space. This microwarping results in a very slight change in the direction of movement and therefore the position of subatomic particles leading to an erroneous conclusion that 10 or 11 dimensional space is necessary for the math to work at the Planck level in Superstring and other theories.

Evidence supporting the concept of consciousness in animals. The hypothesis is presented that in life forms, intelligence is manifested across a wide spectrum encompassing the consciousness of Man and the consciousness of other animal life forms.
