The Realm of Supraphysics: Mind, Matter, Energy

Year of Publication
2003

The Realm of Supraphysics  attempts to capture an extremely large conceptual territory in which a wide array of forces operate and interact, giving birth to the individuals that comprise the cosmos and to the numerous universes of which our world is a small part. This work does not cover the extensive and varied realm of supraphysics in full, because it is simply too vast to be grasped in a single volume. However, it does open a window onto an enchanting realm of unmanifest factors, forces and processes and their manifest functions and operations.
