Metaphysical autobiography of Q. Dean Sloan
On the night of April 13, 1974 I had the karmic fortune of experiencing the natural uprising of kundalini (Sanskrit word for energy that lies dormant in the Muladhara Chakra at the base of the spine). I was sitting in my living room reading a book, and suddenly felt a pleasant intensification of energy. The energy quickly increased in magnitude and rose up my spine in the manner of a divine flood to my head, and at the same time I began hearing the "OM"* being sounded forth by the "Solar Logos"; the enormity of the sound was such that, as far as I could tell, it filled the whole universe. I consciously experienced the divine nature (within everyone) of my multi-dimensional higher self in the 5th dimension (heaven world), and realized that my consciousness¹ was immersed within the consciousness of the One sounding the OM. The ensuing mystical experience was extremely divine, enlightening, and wonderfully long. I experienced clairaudience of the 5th dimension and the energetic essence of the Biblical statement "in Him we live and move and have our being." I was in a state of ecstasy/bliss, but with a sharpness and clarity of intellect that is impossible to describe. I had partial etheric & astral vision, and saw a lavender/rose colored haze, the movement of which was barely perceptible. There was instant recognition and memory of having already experienced this before this lifetime, which was extremely empowering to say the least. An expansion of consciousness occurred that enabled me to understand many things that I couldnt before. The experience lasted for about an hour before it began to subside. It diminished imperceptibly, and about six hours later I could still hear the OM and feel the divine energy of the 5th dimension. I was in a very heightened state of awareness, and didn’t go to bed until the following evening. I was 35 years-old then and had never heard of kundalini or the Solar Logos (in this lifetime that is).
* The OM Note: The sound is beautiful and is as close as you'll get to the genuine clairaudient & physically, as well as consciously, energetically divine, paranormal experience.
¹ Plotinus describes the powerful consciousness expanding awareness realised in mystical experiences in the last sentence: Consider the soul by taking away that which is extraneous. Or rather, let him who takes this away survey himself, and he will see himself as immortal when he beholds himself in the intelligible world, and situated in a pure abode. For he will perceive himself as intellect surveying not anything sensible, but an eternal power contemplating that which is eternal.
I spent a year with Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass as a guide before synchronistically stumbling across The Secret Doctrine by H. P. Blavatsky, an extraordinary & monumental work, which contained knowledge of the human aura and kundalini, and at the same time found A Treatise on Cosmic Fire by Alice A. Bailey (amanuensis for the Tibetan, Djwhal Khul). I intuitively knew that I had spent some time with DK in a former life, and have recalled some good memories as well as one unpleasant memory related to another disciple at the Panchen Lamas Tashi Lhunpo monastery in Shigatse. I have a few very pleasant memories of daily life in the monastery, which entailed being instructed by the wise monks, including the Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, in one of his incarnations, as well as a lot of study and yoga, including hatha, raja, pranayama, and kundalini yoga. I also have an unpleasant memory of an event that happened there: Due to being particularly talented with the cultivation of plants, I had developed a park in which all of the chelas (disciples) went to meditate in the beautiful surroundings. One of the chelas was somewhat mentally disturbed and jealous of my talents. He psychologically lost it one day, as the saying goes, and went through the park tearing up all the beautiful shrubs & flowers. Because of the foregoing effect on my subconscious I had difficulty associating with disciples early on this time around in life, but overcame it later on in the resolution of psychological issues, just like most everyone else has to deal with.
I have studied theosophical metaphysics for 30 years, and the accumulated knowledge enabled me to intuit the answer in the paper that I wrote in response to Dr. Edgar Mitchells paper.
My book, Creation & Metempsychosis (Evolution of the
is a compilation of
theosophical metaphysics that provides the technical metaphysical
rationale for Creation itself, as well as Creation of the human
Soul ("crown chakra" or
"egoic lotus") and is based on the psychology of the
Seven Rays. The petals in the crown
chakra unfold slowly over a long series of lives, and every soul
achieves relative perfection when they have completely unfolded.
The majority of people are unaware of the underlying metaphysics
that are the foundation of all religions, and the Catholic See in
Rome, with its superficial pontification, is responsible for much
theological dogma¹ that has kept the major religions from
uniting and making progress. The inculcation of exoteric
theological doctrines upon Christians and Catholics over the
centuries has prevented them from realizing that the dogma
of one life to live in conjuction with an only begotten
Son/world-savior who will release them from their karmic
obligations is bogus theology that ignores the root basis for our
individual existence, i.e., the
Sahasrara chakra in the human aura or etheric causal
field (spiritual body).
¹ You'll find in The Esoteric Character of the Gospels (See footnote 25 in Part 2), who the life of Jesus of Nazareth was based on, i.e., Jehoshua Ben Pandira who lived a century earlier than the era called Christian, namely, during the reign of the Jewish King Alexander Jannaeus and his wife Salome, who reigned from the year 105 to 79 B.C. Accused by the Jews of having learned the magic art in Egypt, and of having stolen from the Holy of Holies the Incommunicable Name*, Jehoshua (Jesus), was put to death by the Sanhedrin at Lud. He was stoned and then crucified on a tree, on the eve of Passover. The Gospel story of Jesus is mythology, and was originally written by initiates for the purpose of veiling the 5 major points in the evolution of the human soul, from the symbolism of the birth at Bethlehem to the resurrection. See also The Historical Jesus and Mythical Christ by the highly respected, self-educated scholar, Gerald Massey.
* The technique of the Mysteries was unfolded by the Sage Illuminator, the Master of the Secret House. The power to know his guardian spirit was revealed to the new initiate; the method of disentangling his material body from his divine vehicle was explained; and to consummate the magnum opus, there was revealed the Divine Name--the secret and unutterable designation of the Supreme Deity, by the very knowledge of which man and his God are made consciously one. With the giving of the Name, the new initiate became himself a pyramid, within the chambers of whose soul numberless other human beings might also receive spiritual enlightenment.
² The division of Christian teachings into exoteric--public--and esoteric--secret--was understood by genuine Christian teachers to be the same as in other religious and philosophic systems. This is made particularly clear in Origen's book Contra Celsus: “That there should be certain doctrines, not made known to the multitude, which are [revealed] after the exoteric ones have been taught, is not a peculiarity of Christianity alone, but also of philosophic systems, in which certain truths are exoteric and others esoteric. Some of the hearers of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit; while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to profane and insufficiently prepared ears. Moreover, all the Mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he [Celsus] endeavours to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature” (extract from Chapter VII).

The wild Rainbow Lorikeets have become very friendly. The photos below were taken by my wife, Jan, on February 26, 2008 in our back yard in Burnett Heads, Queensland Australia.
I've had a bird feeder attached to a tree branch near by for over 3 years, and recently decided to use the dish to see if they would come to me and, as you can see, no worry's mate. They frequently land on either my shoulders or the top of my head, and I have to raise my left hand up to them slowly in order to transfer them to my fingers, so I can lower them to the dish. The one in my left hand in the photo below had landed on my right shoulder (as shown further below). The two on the dish are the leaders of the group. The reason I'm smiling is due to the fact that when I moved the one in my hand closer to the dish so he could get some seeds, the Lorikeet in the middle pecked at him, and I had just moved him back when the picture was taken. The rest of the flock can't have any until the leaders have had their fill, so now I put extra seed in dishes on the ground so the rest can join in.
I set them down slowly & gently
The Lorikeet looking at me below was the one in my hand that I moved forward to the dish for seed, but then pulled him back to safety from the bully on the dish. He thought the world of me after that and landed on my forearm once as I was walking to the garage. I had to stop at the door, turn sidewise and lift my arm in the direction of the birdfeeder for him to fly off. I'm standing only a couple of feet away in 2 of the last 3 photos posted here that I took after Jan went into the house.

I sent a letter to Dr. Edgar Mitchell on June 22, 2010, and decided to post it here also, along with his response. Mathematicians should contact IONS if they have any suggestions on the following subject.
June 22, 2010
Subject: Dyadic Model of Consciousness
Dear Dr. Mitchell
I communicated with you via email several years ago (sometime in 2002) in response to your paper: Natures Mind: The Quantum Hologram, and stated that I had the answer, or metaphysical rationale, for the energy transfer mechanism by which the classical states of a remote object are affected. The answer was/is the law of attraction, which you disregarded on the basis of it being a metaphysical assumption or conjecture and, therefore, not a possibility.
Being a somewhat humble man, Im aware of that attribute in others and, after reading your statement, our current knowledge base is certainly incomplete and may even, in many respects, be totally incorrect, I’m going on the assumption you’re very aware that your philosophical understanding/perception of the universe has been evolving throughout your adult life as you’ve acquired more knowledge & experience, and would agree that when evidence is presented (logical as well as perceptual) of our energetically connected, but autonomous, immortal self’s existence, that quantum mathematical formalism will naturally evolve to reflect that perceptual reality. In your own words: a new paradigm, one that properly addresses, in verifiable scientific terms, our collective relationship to each other, to the environment, to nature, and to the Universe. Certainly as a species we have a long way to go to gain a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of the true nature of ourselves and our universe.
And I sincerely ask you, exactly what are verifiable scientific terms? It will be recognised very soon that
clairvoyant* sight is the ultimate scientific
research tool, because of the scientists who will have the
faculty and, together, verify their observations with published
papers. In your studies and research youve probably seen
the illustration of the atom¹ as given in occult literature,
including the spirillae within the atom. It wont be too
long my friend before main stream science acknowledges the
existence of the third eye² (ajna chakra) within the
human etheric³ causal field, and will also verify the existence
of the mental & astral spheres, along with the astral light
(atomic astral plane reflection of the akasha) and confirm the
holographic nature of existence thats naturally seen with
Since the OM (cosmic thought/ideation) is the originator of and pervades the cosmos (the zero point field), there is an astrological science to climate change (evolution) occurring with Sol & all of the planets in the solar system, as well as consciousness changes occurring in humanity and the animal kingdom.
As you say: Achieving new views of reality and, by implication, a sustainable modern civilization requires enlightened efforts to establish a fundamental shift in common perceptions leading to changes in thinking, values, behavior and actions based on the concepts of inter-connectedness, cooperation, and interdependence in all human endeavors. This shift can come about if a significant portion of humankind develops this new awareness and understanding and incorporates them into individual and societal belief systems. Science can support this shift by providing reliable and credible empirical data in support of these premises Humankinds next phase of evolution will be more an evolution in thought, knowledge, spirituality and consciousness than one involving our biology or physiology. It will likely be an evolution in consciousness triggered by research involving dramatic change in perceptions, values, beliefs and attitudes and a profound resultant shift in human behavior. As a consequence of this shift, the every man for himself paradigm fueled by greed will be supplanted by the all for one and one for all paradigm fueled by a new spirit of altruism and unity. Predicated on credible science, peoples of the world must come to understand that we really are only as strong as our weakest link; that what we do to others we do to ourselves; and that we are indeed our brothers keeper quite literally. When this comes about, it will be the dawn of a new day, and solutions to every other major threat, problem or challenge we face will quickly find their remedy, but certainly not before. To be sure, we must act quickly to embark on our journey deeper into the quantum realm, for time is not on our side.

And the following was Dr. Mitchell's response.
June 29, 2010
Dear Mr. Sloan:
Thank you for your letter dated Tuesday, June 22, 2010, which arrived today. Dr. Mitchell is in the midst of preparing for a trip to England, and did not have sufficient time to devote to your well-researched proposals for further consideration.
He is most appreciative of your study of the Dyadic Model of Consciousness and plans to give further consideration to your letter and its contents when time permits.
Thank you again for your interest and your extensive contemplation of this elusive subject matter.

I participated in Robert Bigelow's 2021 essay contest with regards the Best Evidence For Life After Death, which was originallyt titled - Best Evidence for Afterlife. There were
29 individual essays recognised, however, my essay wasn't one of them.
Here is my essay.
Best Evidence For Life After Death
The conclusive evidence for the afterlife is empirical, paranormal/mystical knowing/awareness of the heaven world, or intellectual realm of being, corroborated throughout history by the wisest souls who ever lived and Plotinus is a definitive example - “Many times it has happened: Lifted out of the body into myself; becoming external to all other things; beholding a marvellous beauty; then, more than ever, assured of community with the loftiest order; enacting the noblest life, acquiring identity with the divine; poised above whatsoever is less than the Supreme: yet, there comes the moment of descent from intellection to reasoning, and after that sojourn in the divine, I ask myself how it happens that I can now be descending, and how did the soul ever enter into my body, the soul which, even within the body, is the high thing it has shown itself to be...In the Cavern of Plato and the Cave of Empedocles I discern this universe, where the breaking of the fetters and the ascent from the depths are figures of the wayfaring of the soul towards the Intellectual Realm [Heaven]. In the Phadrus Plato makes a failing of the wings the cause of entry to this world; there are judgments, fates, and necessities driving other souls down to this order. In all these explanations he finds guilt in the arrival of soul at body. But treating in the Timaeus of our universe he exalts it [the soul] and calls it a blessed god and holds that Soul was given it [existence/consciousness] by the goodness of the Creator to the end that the total of things might be possessed of intellect, for thus it cannot be except through Soul. In the same way the soul of each of us is sent that the universe may be complete. This is how we come to read in the Phadrus that our soul, entering into association with that complete Soul and itself thus made perfect, walks the lofty ranges, and that as long as it is neither inbound to body nor held in any sort of servitude, so long it tranquilly bears its part in the governance of the All, exactly like the World-Soul itself; for it suffers no hurt whatever by furnishing body with the power to existence, since not every form of care for the inferior need wrest the providing Soul from its own sure standing in the Highest. . .(1).
My personal experience happened on the night of April 13, 1974 when I had the karmic fortune of experiencing the natural uprising of “kundalini” (Sanskrit word for energy that lies dormant in the “Muladhara Chakra” at the base of the spine). I was sitting in my living room reading a book, and suddenly felt a pleasant intensification of energy.

I was in a very heightened state of awareness, and didn’t go to bed until the following evening. I was 35 years-old then and had never heard of kundalini or the Solar Logos (in this lifetime that is).
* Plotinus describes the powerful consciousness expanding awareness realised in mystical experiences in the last sentence: “Consider the soul by taking away that which is extraneous. Or rather, let him who takes this away survey himself, and he will see himself as immortal when he beholds himself in the intelligible world, and situated in a pure abode. For he will perceive himself as intellect surveying not anything sensible, but an eternal power contemplating that which is eternal.” (2)
As a result of my mystical experience I have recalled memories of a previous life on earth at the Tashilhunpo Monastery in Shigatse, Tibet. I have a few pleasant memories of daily life in the monastery, which entailed being instructed by the wise monks, including the Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, as well as a lot of study and yoga. I also have an unpleasant memory of an event that happened there that was the result of being particularly talented with the cultivation of plants. I had developed a park in which all of the disciples went to meditate in the beautiful surroundings. One of the disciples was somewhat mentally disturbed and jealous of my talents. He psychologically “lost it” one day, as the saying goes, and went through the park tearing up all the beautiful shrubs & flowers. Because of the foregoing effect on my subconscious I had difficulty associating with disciples early on this time around in life, but overcame it later on in the resolution of psychological issues (3).
Conclusive evidence with regards the afterlife can be found in a synthesis of philosophy & religion, which reveals that the human soul/godº is immortal¹ (“as above, so below”), therefore, has everlasting life and incarnates (voluntarily plunges²) periodically into a fetus out of evolutionary (4) and karmic necessity at the “appointed time”³ until it reaches relative perfection, as those (5) before us have demonstrated, after which it will go out no more.
º “I have said Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6). “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?” (St. John 10:34).
soul, Iamblichus says, is an immortal entity, unbegotten and imperishable,
indivisible and incorporeal, therefore, it could not have come into existence at
birth, nor will it perish at death. Furthermore, being indivisible, being
essentially incorporeal, and having nothing in common with the body, it cannot
be affected by anything, nor has it any concern with change or condition” (6).
² Plotinus: “Thus in sum, the Soul, a divine being and a dweller in the loftier realms, has entered body: it is a godº, a later phase of the divine: but, under stress of its powers and of its tendency to bring order to its next lower, it penetrates to this sphere in a voluntary plunge: if it turns back quickly all is well; it will have taken no hurt by acquiring the knowledge of evil and coming to understand what sin is, by bringing its forces into manifest play, by exhibiting those activities and productions which, remaining merely potential in the unembodied, might as well never have been even there, if destined never to come into actuality. . .” (7).
³ Job 14:14 “If a man die, shall he live again? All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.” [“change” is the acquisition of new astral & mental sheaths of the 4th ether†, along with the skandhas (8), which predispose the new personality – “lower self” that forms around, due to the law of attraction, the physical etheric mold created by the “four Devarajas”* at the life review.] The “appointed time” is established at the conclusion of the life review wherein the “Lipika Lord” “Atropos” (“Myth of Er”) inserts the soul’s “irreversible” karmic “choice” into the metaphysical “whorl of necessity”. The soul then bows, saluting the “throne of necessity”, and departs to await the time allocated before its “voluntary plunge” into the fetus – the physical “whorl of necessity.”
Job 14:15 “Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee; thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.” [to continue from where you had left off in the previous life, and reap the good, as well as the bad, of what you had sown].
† See diagram of human energy field within God’s energy field on page 16 of a paper I wrote, re: “Nature’s Mind: The Quantum Hologram”, in response to a paper written by the late Capt. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon (9).
* The four Devarajas rule over the four elements of earth, water, air, and fire, with their indwelling nature-spirits and essences..” “..it is the Devarajas who, having command of the elements of which the etheric double must be composed, arrange their proportion [percentage of substance of each sub-plane] so as to fulfill accurately the intention of the Lipika [Lords of Karma].” The Lipika “weigh the deeds of each personality [during the life review] when the final separation of its principles [lower mental & astral bodies/personality] takes place at the end of its astral life, and give as it were the mold of an etheric double exactly suitable to its karma for the man’s next birth”(10).
