Unified Reality Theory describes how all reality evolves from an absolute existence. It also demonstrates that this absolute existence must have consciousness as an attribute that’s intrinsic to its being. Thus, Unified Reality Theory shows that consciousness, rather than being a product of the evolution of physical reality, is itself the source of what we experience as physical reality, and that physical reality is itself but one aspect of an evolving universal consciousness.
Unified Reality Theory shows that, most fundamentally, this absolute consciousness-existence evolves into reality by means of a single process: self-relation. That is, consciousness-existence becomes reality by forming relationships with itself, analogous in a very limited way to what happens to a rubber band that’s twisted repeatedly upon itself, i.e., it remains whole while differentiating into other forms.
Thus, Unified Reality Theory demonstrates that reality is a state of existential self-relation. The idea that the universe consists of existence which has formed relationships with itself isn’t new; Taoists have understood this idea for at least a couple of thousand years. What’s new here is the presentation of this idea in the form of a detailed, defined, and dynamic structural model that correlates with the behavior of physical reality as described by science in general and physics in particular.
Ultimately, Unified Reality Theory uses science and logic to demonstrate that God actually exists, as a pervasive and absolute consciousness that transcends the realities of space and time, and that we, as well as everything else, are that!

Unified Reality Theory is a model of reality that describes in detail how the universe gets something from nothing—that is, it shows how the somethings we experience as reality evolve from a more fundamental level that's nothing. "Nothing" doesn't mean nonexistence, just existence that's not a "thing."
The level of existential nothingness from which experiential somethings arise is referred to in the model as absolute existence. Central to the description of how something can come from nothing is the understanding that absolute existence must have consciousness as an attribute that's intrinsic to its being. That is, consciousness isn't something separate from absolute existence, but rather the word "consciousness" and the phrase "absolute existence" are two different ways of pointing toward the same undefinable level of nothingness from which all somethings arise.
In viewing consciousness as fundamental, Unified Reality Theory takes a position on the nature of reality that's in opposition to the dominant material realist conception of reality held in the West. Material realism includes the idea that the machinations of physical reality in general and brain function in particular somehow give rise to the phenomenon we call consciousness.
It is my position that material realism is the flat-Earth idea of our time, in as much as it is a mistaken view of a situation derived from a limited perspective. Unified Reality Theory broadens that perspective by showing how physical reality evolves from consciousness, from a reality that is completely non-physical.About the Author:
