For the past forty years, Tom has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness. His books, videos and workshops have reached millions of people around the world and have changed lives and opened eyes to a new way of thinking about reality: a new way of understanding physics, and a new way of understanding who, what and why we are.
Tom’s research into consciousness began with Robert Monroe (The Monroe Institute) in the early seventies. Bob asked that he and Dennis Mennerich provide scientific documentation for his out of body experiences. His research later on as both physicist and consciousness explorer eventually led him to a better understanding of how reality works and consequently to deriving a big theory of everything. My Big TOE. The “My” in My Big TOE refers to the fact that it is his model and infers that with your own experience you can arrive at your own big TOE.
Tom’s model of reality represents a big picture perspective that unites the objective and subjective worlds of mind and matter, physics and metaphysics, normal and paranormal, secular and religious…. and leads to both a better, more comprehensive physics and a more peaceful, giving, and loving approach to life.
By demanding high-quality repeatable, empirical, and evidential data to separate what’s real (exists independently and externally) from what’s imaginary or illusory, Tom has scientifically derived this new model of consciousness and reality -- which is being increasingly accepted by scientists and spiritualists alike. This unique perspective of our reality has been compiled into a trilogy of books -- entitled 'My Big TOE (Theory of Everything).
From his childhood onward, Tom experienced many spiritual journeys and some of these he would later re-experience in his search for the questions he wanted science to answer: How does this reality work? What is our purpose here?
The MBT trilogy combines his work as a large complex systems analyst and as an explorer of the large complex system we call reality to conclude that LOVE is the fabric of our reality.
Tom's statement “If it is not your experience, it is not your truth” highlights the message that he wishes to impart, encouraging everyone to engage with their own experiences, to learn and to evolve.
