The primary function of this website is to offer a model to enhance therapeutic efficacy, for any type of therapy – physical, cognitive or spiritual, and will have utility both diagnostically and prescriptively. The richness of the model has made it challenging to present it in a linear, book form, and is presented here as a collection of interlinked documents, which seems to better capture the many facets, or “lenses”, through which the information can be viewed. Delving into this material has been an intriguing journey of self discovery, during which I have encountered a more complete understanding of the nature of self as a living organism, and self’s relationship to the organic and inorganic other.
There are things known to be “true” at the level of theory. The framework presented here illuminates connections between a couple of theories, and hang hypotheses from these connections. The twin theoretical pillars of the Dimensional Mastery model (DMM) are the geometric nature of space (Platonic Geometry) and Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, and by extension the theory of Exaptation, which posits that more complex living systems are adaptations and extensions of more primitive ones. In the same way in which we are still adapting to Copernicus’s theory that the sun is at the center of our solar system – we still talk about sunrise and sunset, and much of our thinking is flat earth with infinite as opposed to finite resources, we are just beginning to adjust to the idea of and engage with Darwin’s hypothesis that we are one form of life among many. The repercussions of adjusting to this perspective cross cultural, social and individual limitations to include child and personal development, health and social planning issues.
The DMM explores how living organisms rationally must have evolved one dimension at a time, first inhabiting a point in space and persisting through time, as plants still do, and then extending as animals sequentially into the line, plane and volume aspects of physical space. Each leap into a dimensionally more complex environment required a corresponding leap in physical and neurological complexity, repurposing and extending the abilities of the underlying, fully functional biological systems, which meanwhile continued to support whatever necessary requirements persisted of their original role. The DMM extends beyond the spacetime dimensions to elucidate and explore the created and potential human experience.
The DMM both complements and supports the Gaia Hypothesis, which states that the most accurate view of life on Earth is one where all life is considered as one living organism, with the differing species and individuals functioning similar to how individual cells maintain specific roles in our bodies.
Understanding the capabilities of these “layers” of function opens up new therapeutic avenues to fully actualize their capacities, and can even support conjecture on further evolutionary possibilities. The therapeutic utility of this model is the reason for this website, organizing both assessment and correction tools in a way I have found improves their efficacy.
I have presented an introduction of the model as a revision of the creation story in Genesis:
I have also included by way of introduction the first paper I wrote on this subject, with an emphasis on the therapeutic aspects of the model:
