Neurologist/Neuroscientist Dr. David Wiebers Advances a Comprehensive New Theory on the Nature of Consciousness and the Nature of the Universe

Dr. Wiebers Presents Scientific Evidence from the Theory During Keynote Presentation Entitled "Theory of Reality" at the International Congress on Neurology & Epidemiology

NICE, France, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. David O. Wiebers, a world leader in neuroscience (with the support of other world leaders in neuroscience) today announced the advancement of the Theory of Reality (TOR), a comprehensive new theory regarding the nature of consciousness and the nature of the universe (which are interwoven), the release of a book entitled "Theory of Reality: Evidence for Existence Beyond the Brain and Tools for Your Journey," and the launch of TOR Group, and TOR Foundation.

The Theory of Reality (TOR) combines key elements of neuroscience, physics and metaphysical science to create an all-encompassing new level of understanding to address the most basic universal questions of humankind--Who are we?  Where are we going?  How do we fit into the universe?  In the process, the TOR provides answers to the two most important unanswered questions in science as defined in a special issue of the journal Science in 2005: "What is the universe made of?" and "What is the biological basis of consciousness?"

The overarching purpose of the TOR is to help people to live a happier, more successful and fulfilling life," said Dr. David Wiebers, co-founder of TOR Group and TOR Foundation.  "The TOR provides an approach which enables us to build upon and add to a purely materialistic approach to science, medicine, life and existence. It empowers people with knowledge and tools to look inward for their own answers to profound questions. Deeply understanding that the brain and body are temporary vehicles rather than a person's core identity is fundamental to virtually any form of what has been referred to as enlightenment."

The TOR includes compelling evidence supporting the validity of Near-Death Experiences and for one's survival following death.  Ten other key evidence categories are also included.  Consciousness, rather than something that merely emanates from human brains, is identified as the fundamental fabric of ourselves and our universe.

"This revolutionary discovery cannot be overestimated," said ICNE Congress Chair Valery Feigin, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology and Editor-in-Chief, Neuroepidemiology. "It can change our lives, not only as individuals but also as a society.  Dr. Wiebers makes a compelling case for applying the Theory of Reality to the ultimate understanding of ourselves, the purpose of our existence and our place in the universe. The underlying concepts are fully explained and proven using scientific rigor to scrutinize critical evidence in a way that has heretofore not been achieved."

The TOR also provides tools and techniques to facilitate Expanded-Reality Experiences, such as Peak Experiences that enhance creativity, vision and intuition; promote key insights and discoveries; and facilitate higher understanding of anything and everything, including profound and not so profound subject matters.

The Theory of Reality is available for purchase today on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Theory-Reality-Evidence-Existence-Journey/dp/0985937521/

The first half of the book provides scientific explanation for the TOR evidence categories. The scientific evidence is expressed in terms that can be understood by nonscientists and scientists alike. The second half of the book presents practical day-to-day applications to take control of your own life journey and allow inspiration, uncommon creativity and greater happiness to unfold. Methods range from esoteric metaphysical techniques to basic day-to-day approaches based on twelve key factors. Many of the people who were involved in publishing the book have called reading it a life-changing experience.

Dr. Wiebers and his colleagues formed TOR Group (http://www.torgroup.org) to serve the greater good of individuals and society throughout the world by advancing the kinds of research, education and service that support people's efforts to discover their essential selves and to advance their learning, creativity and human development.

They also formed TOR Foundation to provide education to the general public, scientific and physician communities and to provide financial support in the form of grants and special services contracts to organizations and endeavors that advance the TOR Group's message and strategic intent.
