Location: Seattle, WA, United States of America

About Me

Vernon M Neppe MD, PhD, FRSSAf, BN&NP,  DFAPA.

How does one portray relevant information about oneself on a site such as this? it's certainly pertinent to know more about one's colleagues. This is particularly so if there could, in the future, be any possible collaborations, trust, sharing, influences, ideas, new directions or leadership involved.

Consequently, may I present to you a little about me? My approach here is to endeavor to maintain some objectivity in a very subjective area. Consequently, I've chosen to relate pertinent information derived from several published or Internet sources.  

Thank you,

Vernon.

He practices medicine in Washington state, USA. He is Board Certified in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (UCNS),  anbd (ABPN), and also has an overseas specialist qualification with majors in Psychiatry and Neurology (DPM).

Broader professional recognitions:
Vernon is apparently the only medical specialist listed in as many as five different medical subspecialties or specialties in  the peer-selected book Castle Connolly’s "America's Top Doctors". This is as a Neuropsychiatrist and Behavioral Neurologist plus as a Psychopharmacologist (author of the booksInnovative Psychopharmacotherapy on the subject for colleagues, and Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope for the general public), as a Forensic Specialist (namely, variably Forensic  Neuropsychiatry or Forensic Psychiatry) (author of the e-book, How Attorneys Can Best Utilize Their Medical Expert Witness: A Medical Expert's Perspective) and as a Psychiatrist. He has been listed in all editions of this book "America's Top Doctors" (2000-2016). Prior to that, he was listed in all editions of the other peer-selected book, namely Woodward White’sThe Best Doctors in America    Besides being an author, he is also a playwright (latest play Quakes). He is unofficially a philosopher (with his detailed model —in several books—with Ed Close PhD, called Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm). He is an internationally sought-after professional speaker, consults on computer Internet Security, and is completing a book on nutritional supplementation. Vernon's other major area of study is Consciousness and Phenomenology in both the neuroscience and biopsychophysical context.

Historically relevant information:

In 1986, Professor Neppe established (and became Director of) the first Division of Neuropsychiatry in a Department of Psychiatry in the United States (at the University of Washington in Seattle). His major current academic university affiliation reflects the unusual special honor of being an (adjunct full) Professor, Dept of Neurology and Psychiatry (and prior to that of Psychiatry and Human Behavior) at St Louis University, St Louis, MO (1700 miles away). He is also an attending physician at Overlake Hospital, Bellevue, WA.

He is also listed in America's Top Doctors as a Psychopharmacologist (author of the books Innovative Psychopharmacotherapy on the subject for colleagues, and Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope for the general public) and also as a Forensic specialist. (Forensic [Neuro-]Psychiatry) (see his monograph, How Attorneys Can Best Utilize Their Medical Expert Witness: A Medical Expert's Perspective) and as a Psychiatrist, making him apparently the only medical specialist listed in this peer chosen book listed under five different subspecialties. He is also an author and playwright (latest play Quakes) and philosopher (with his paradigm of Triadic Dimensional Vortical Paradigm ( previously Vortex Pluralism).

Dr Neppe is also a consciousness researcher/ parapsychological researcher / anomalistic psychologist / dimensional biopsychophysicist, an epileptologist and a professional speaker.
Amongst his latest books are the five editions (and a sixth revision) of Neppe VM, Close ER: Reality begins with consciousness: a paradigm shift that works Seattle: Brainvoyage.com, 2012- 2014. (www.Brainvoyage.com) (RBC5), with associated two versions of Neppe VM, Close ER: Glimpses and Glossary (2013- 2014) and Neppe VM, Close ER: Reality begins with consciousness: Key Features (2013- 2014).

These latest books are with Dr Edward Close involving their combined pioneering work. Much of the original detail is in our e-book Neppe VM, Close ER: Reality begins with consciousness: a paradigm shift that works (5th Edition) Fifth Edition. Seattle: Brainvoyage.com, 2014. (www.Brainvoyage.com) (RBC5).


He founded the PNI in Seattle, WA in late 1992. The PNI aims at serving as an international model in the discipline of Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry with clinical, academic, research, forensic and educational emphases. Prior to that, he had trained and worked at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa (medical degree, internship, specialist post-graduate training and as a consultant attending then senior consultant). He was also honored as the Witwatersrand University Overseas Traveling Fellow for 1982-3 and worked at Cornell University Medical College, New York where he consolidated his psychopharmacology, chronobiology and sleep-wake disorders, epileptology, geriatric and neuropsychological experience.

Dr Neppe is regarded by his peers as the world's leading authority on the déjà vu phenomenon: His phenomenological classic,The Psychology of Déjà Vu(1983) was the first scientific book in the area and this has been followed by a trilogy of books in 2006, namely Déjà Vu Revisited, Déjà Vu: A Second Look, andDéjà Vu: Glossary and Library.

Professional Responsibilities:
Major international recognitions include Vernon being apparently the first physician living in the United States to be elected to Fellowship of the Royal Society of South Africa (Foreign Fellow, 2002), being elected a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, leading the first international (and USA) delegation in Neuropsychiatry and Psychopharmacology (to China People to People Ambassador program, 2006) and being selected to lead the first US and International Delegation in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropharmacology (but the recession caused its cancellation). He was also elected Diplomate (also Senior Research Fellow) of the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (ISPE - www.thethousand.com) (also Social Network Administrator of this society plus Elections officer) and, and is Executive Director of the Exceptional Creative Achievement Organization (www.5eca.com).

He is a fellow or above of seven and member of fourteen professional associations (including the American or International Psychiatric, Medical, Neuropsychiatric, Epilepsy, Psychogeriatric, Psychopharmacological and Psychological Associations and Societies). His Consultancies have included the Epilepsy Institute in New York, the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual III, IV and IV-R, and  serving as psychopharmacological consultant for the latest Wechsler intelligence and memory scales (WAIS-4, WMS-4).

Other background information:
Amongst his other current special honors are current listings in the books "Marquis Who's Who in the World" and as one of "The Leading Physicians of the World". He was recognized inMen of Achievement,Five Thousand Personalities of the World, Two Thousand Notable American Men,Five Hundred Leaders of Influence,America's Top Psychiatrists andBest in the US. Listings also include  International Man of the Year 1992-3 "in recognition of his services to Neuropsychiatry, Psychopharmacology and Anomalistic Psychology", Millennium Medal of Honor and Great Minds of the 21st Century.

Publications and presentations:

Dr Neppe is an internationally sought after lecturer and has made more than a thousand scientific presentations in eleven countries including chairing international conferences on four continents and radio and television appearances around the world. He has lectured at about 90% of the medical schools and hospital/ clinic affiliates in the USA and Canada.

Vernon has extensive scientific publications (including abstracts and internet, well over three hundred; on every habitable continent).He is author of seven books, served as founding editor of a journal, guest editor of another, and on the editorial boards of numerous others. His book, Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope, written for the general public, patients and family members, as well as colleagues in the medical, pharmaceutical, psychological and legal professions, has been perceived as a major contribution and a classic, defining as it does, the new literary genre of "sciction".

Pioneering research:

Professor Neppe  has pioneered  research  in five distinct areas: neuropsychiatry, neurpsychopharmacologiy, paradigmatic change,  phenomenology and consciousness studies.

  • Neuropsychiatry

Dr Neppe has developed several measuring neuropsychiatric instruments, inventories and historical screens which are currently in varying stages of development. These include the BROCAS SCAN (Screening Cerebral Assessment of Neppe), The INSET (Inventory of Neppe of Symptoms of Epilepsy and the Temporal Lobe), the STRAW (the first time / severity measure for tardive dyskinesia), a geriatric inpatient instrument namely the PBRS (with JP Loebel) (The Problem Behaviors Rating Scale), the Neppe Psychological Screen Questionnaire (NPSQ) (in his WAIS consultancy), the NEQ (Neppe Eating Questionnaire) and Narcolepsy Questionnaire, as well as research Subjective Paranormal Questionnaires. He has also described new medical terms, new medical conditions, new medical classifications, and the distinguishing criteria of several nosological categories.

  • Psychopharmacology

Prof. Nepe's pharmacological areas include demonstrating the value of anticonvulsant drugs in psychiatry: He was recognized internationally as one  of three major pioneers of this whole area of research that continues to impact on the lives of millions; use of high dose buspirone as the only consistently successful treatment for the previously incurable tardive dyskinesia;  and the extended use of azapirones in aggression and attention deficit disorder. He has also developed pharmacologically relevant concepts in medical areas such as deinduction, non-vertiginous dizziness, dysproccia, chindling and possible temporal lobe symptoms.

  • Paradigm

Dr Neppe's magnum opus is an ongoing project. With Dr Ed Close, he has developed a new "theory of everything", a paradigm called the Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm: The N-Dimensionometric CST Matrix Entropic-extropic Mathematicologic LFAF Model: An integrated space, time and “consciousness” matrix reflecting event-horizon, warping-N-dimensional extrapolation, extent-content-intent distinctional-C-matrix open-closed, holistic-unified, finite-infinite biopsychophysical reality (TDVP). This has been a labor of a quarter of a century and was privately released for peer-review in February 2011, and two scientific books are in process at present.

Activities

His book, Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope, written for the general public, patients and family members, as well as colleagues in the medical, pharmaceutical, psychological and legal professions, has been perceived as a major contribution and a classic, defining as it does, the new literary genre of "sciction".

Professor Neppe's major research areas include pharmacological, neuropsychiatric and phenomenological elements. He developed several measuring neuropsychiatric instruments and inventories including the BROCAS SCAN (Screening Cerebral Assessment of Neppe), The INSET (Inventory of Neppe of Symptoms of Epilepsy and the Temporal Lobe), the STRAW (the first time / severity measure for tardive dyskinesia), a geriatric inpatient instrument namely the PBRS (with JP Loebel) (The Problem Behaviors Rating Scale), the Neppe Psychological Screen Questionnaire (NPSQ), as well as research Subjective Paranormal Questionnaires and Narcolepsy Questionnaires. His pharmacologic areas include the only double blind study demonstrating the value of carbamazepine in dyscontrol and psychosis thereby being one of three major pioneers (with Okuma in Japan, and Post in the USA) of the whole area of anticonvulsant drugs in psychiatry, research that continues to impact on the lives of millions, the use of high dose buspirone as a successful treatment for tardive dyskinesia, and the extended use of azapirones in aggression and attention deficit disorder. He has also developed concepts in medical areas such as deinduction, non-vertiginous dizziness, dysproccia, chindling and possible temporal lobe symptoms.

Dr Neppe's magnum opus is an ongoing project. With Dr Ed Close, he has developed a new "theory of everything", a paradigm called the Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm: The N-Dimensionometric CST Matrix Entropic-extropic Mathematicologic LFAF Model: An integrated space, time and “consciousness” matrix reflecting event-horizon, warping-N-dimensional extrapolation, extent-content-intent distinctional-C-matrix open-closed, holistic-unified, finite-infinite biopsychophysical reality. This has been a labor of a quarter of a century and was publicly released in February 2011.

Nonlocal (dimensional) biopsychophysical activities
A significant proportion of Dr Neppe's activities has been in the areas relating to nonlocal biopsychophysics, anomalistic psychology and phenomenology.

 


Consciousness research activities

Interests:
A significant proportion of Dr Neppe's consciousness research activities have been in the areas relating to a consciousness research, parapsychological research, anomalistic psychology, dimensional biopsychophysics, dilemmas of nonlocality versus time and space, phenomenology, and neuroscience and psi phenomenology.

Vernon has a wide variety of interests in scientific consciousness research and has published, inter alia,   on developing pertinent models, phenomenology, neuroscience and subjective experience, approaches to research methodology, spontaneous events, terminology, classifications, survival, déjàvu, theory, models, classifications, psychopathology, organic brain elements, OBEs and NDEs. He is actively involved in research including precognition. He is particularly interested in developing the interests in consciousness research of scientists outside the discipline and with assisting less experienced faculty. Much of his previous leadership has been directed in that direction.


Leadership activities: These include:
* Prior to leaving his native South Africa in 1986, founder and editor of the Parapsychological Journal of South Africa in 1980 (through its last edition in 1987). This was abstracted by PsychInfo.

Further key background to Dr Neppe’s current consciousness work:
In this RBC5 book we define a new axiom. No longer is it just Space-Time unification (as per Hermann Minkowski in 1908) but the extent contains necessarily Space and Time being inseparably tethered into a union with Consciousness. And, this, in turn, supports our broader metaparadigm called TDVP (the "Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm"). Unlike 23 other so-called "Theory of Everything" models, which are shown to be incomplete, the data demonstrating TDVP has continued to be reinforced with further scientific validations over this time period. TDVP scores a perfect 39/39 using objective criteria. Other than the Neppe and Close models no others score even 20/39. TDVP, inter alia, necessarily includes several important components: consciousness, extra dimensions, infinity, new mathematics and tethering in the TDVP model. No other model contains all these features.
Yet the TDVP model still can take into account our regular physical laws and our day-to-day reality because these basic experiences are still embedded in those 9 dimensions, and those 9 dimensions are themselves contained in a broader infinite reality. In 2014, Close and Neppe demonstrated the 9 dimensional spin model, which they postulated this included consciousness. This was no accident: It was confirmation of a hypothesis. They had already postulated that our finite reality had 9 dimensions based on TDVP.

It was only in late 2105 that Close and Neppe put together the further major puzzle: Gimmel:
Gimmel is the Neppe-Close new term for the third content component/ substance/ flow. Gimmel is separate, but profoundly linked with mass and energy. Effectively, Neppe and Close propose that mass-energy cannot exist without gimmel. They also postulate that gimmel is reflecting at least in part, that gimmel involves "consciousness". Gimmel allows for "meaning" in everything in the finite, though we speculate it might derive from the infinite. This Content Consciousness is an extension then of their extent of Consciousness in RBC 5 Space and Time being inseparably tethered into a union with Consciousness.

Neppe and Close have empirically mathematically demonstrated that the interchangeable mass and energy content is insufficient requiring that gimmel (third mass-less, energy-less substance). They postulate that gimmel most likely, reflects, at least partly, a Content of Consciousness, effectively applying consciousness into the equations of physics. Therefore, our reality content, too, can be conceptualized as triadic (mass-energy-consciousness content) and involves rotations through 9 dimensions. Therefore, Gimmel and the resulting math calculation of Mass-energy with gimmel produce a new critically important concept "Triadic Rotational Units of Equivalence" (TRUE units). Gimmel and TRUE Units are therefore our reality containers, closely linked with and part of our TDVP model.

Close and Neppe published two major papers late in 2015 and after further interchanges and feedback, amplified these papers with follow-ups this year post-publication because as with any potentially significant finding there are always some additions, amplifications or alterations.
Close ER, Neppe VM Speculations: On The “God Matrix”, On The Third Form Of Reality (Gimmel), On The Refutation Of Materialism, And On Gluons. WISE Journal 4: 4; 3-30, 2015 (revision 2016). This "God Matrix" paper we attach is relatively non-technical, and generally written for non-mathematicians and non-physicists. In the lengthier "equations of consciousness " paper we provide detail on the empirical and mathematical demonstrations. The principles are what's pertinent. The second article is Close ER, Neppe VM Putting Consciousness Into The Equations Of Science: The Third Form Of Reality (Gimmel) And The “TRUE” Units (Triadic Rotational Units Of Equivalence) Of Quantum Measurement; IQNexus Journal 7: 4; 7-118, 2015 (again with this minor textual revision of 2016). This paper ensures the empirical data is carefully recorded, and given that it involves substantial mathematics, the data can be replicated, at will: you can examine the empirically based mathematical physics in some detail.


• Atomic Materialism is refuted: Despite materialists arguing to the contrary, materialism in the atomic model is refuted. Atomic Materialism is simply mathematically impossible for the atom to exist applying current particle physics. That simple mathematical demonstration appears to be huge and a major paradigm shift.
• Gimmel provides essential stability: Moreover, mathematically the atom simply cannot exist without that third substance, gimmel. That gives the atom, and moreover subatomic particles (electrons, quarks in protons and neutrons) stability and symmetry. These are needed otherwise our world could not exist: Everything would otherwise fly away!
• The elements and compounds of life can be understood: We delineate for the first time that the elements of life that have special properties linked with gimmel and TRUE. These are stable and symmetrical elements, and contain more gimmel than the other non-life sustaining, non-inert elements. Moreover, amazingly, their overall quantized equivalent scores are multiples of the cube roots of 108 cubed (that is 2 squared times 3 cubed).
◦ Close and Neppe demonstrate fundamental elements of life are C, O, N, S, Ca, Mg and the major fundamental one is Hydrogen (H).
◦ Close and Neppe show, too, how a form of gimmel remarkably replaces the absence of a neutron in Hydrogen, making H by far the most versatile element.
◦ Close and Neppe demonstrate a special role for certain inert gases (Helium, Neon). This allows major insights into the Periodic Classification of the Elements.
◦ Neppe and Close show why water has the properties it does. Water is unique even in relation to gimmel. It has more gimmel than any other compound.
◦ Neppe and Close postulate why phosphorus must be a stable, asymmetrical element because it is energy related.
• The new mathematics allows greater understanding of reality: We emphasize new mathematical approaches to working with dimensions and quantized volumes. Non-mathematicians can gloss over this but it's important to emphasize this data is based on solid and innovative math, particularly, the "Conveyance Equation", the "Calculus of Dimensional Distinctions", "Dimensional Extrapolation" plus adaptations of Fermat's Last Theorem, and Pythagorean calculations and specific applications of Diophantine Equations). These techniques allows applying the new TRUE unit analysis: Triadic Rotational Units of Equivalence are the bases for the critically important way of measuring the elements and compounds.
• Meaning and Consciousness may be fundamental We propose the role of the content of meaningful information / consciousness container which is tethered to everything. This is where the "Conveyance Equation" comes in. For the first time, we delineate the "Equations of Consciousness". This is derived empirically: It was amazing to discover how all the elements of life fit into multiples of 108 cubed. From this, we can predict from that silicon must be one of the life elements: Si is the only other element in the periodic table other than H, C, O, N, S, Ca, Mg, He, Ne that fits this.
• Gimmel and TRUE might work even cosmologically: We further postulate the unification of everything from the subatomic to the cosmological levels and that gimmel pertains to all levels. This even impacts Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Gimmel appears to be universal.
◦ Remarkably, we postulated that the cosmological ratios of gimmel to TRUE in the most abundant elements (Hydrogen particularly plus Helium) would be similar to the ratio of volumetric dark matter plus dark energy together to the cosmos. This is confirmed and the results, in fact, appear to be exactly the same. Are these results purely coincidence?
• Gluons could be gimmel: Possibly the most remarkable latest addition to the God Matrix article, has been the mathematical demonstration that gluons cannot be making up the missing portions needed for the complete volumetric equivalence for the whole atom. This is because gluons are not coupled with electrons: This means that, mathematically, the atoms in the life elements would then become asymmetrically unstable. This appears to be a critical new finding because gluons, as physicists currently understand them are a kind of "particle glue" in protons and electrons. We markedly extend this contribution of Nobel Laureate Murray Gell-Mann: Yet we show the current gluon hypothesis appears incorrect as it does not fully fit the requirements for stability in particle physics. Gimmel, however, works well in electrons, as well as protons and electrons. This may be a finding of major significance as it supports the idea of TRUE units and 9 dimensions (and effectively disputes that gluons are just a strong "glue" in protons and neutrons; and the lack of gluons in electrons might make this idea even less feasible.) (God Matrix pages 21-23). It may turn out that what were regarded as gluons are far more extensive, actually having the properties of gimmel and allowing involvements with electrons.
• Amplifying current thinking: There are also some fundamental amplifications to current mathematics and physics:
◦ They extend relativistic thinking, by re-examining time and consciousness, but do not in any way compromise current thinking which is relative to our experience of 3 spatial dimensions in a moment in time.
◦ They point out the limitations of applying Newtonian infinitesimal calculus in a quantized finite existence.
◦ They postulate special roles for infinity and a real “God Matrix” (in contrast, with the journalistic “God Particle” of the Higgs Boson. which is unstable and ephemeral and has nothing to do with consciousness).
◦ In the equations article, they amplify a new model of the Pauli Exclusion Principle (p97-98) and of Daled (p109), plus These revisions have become even more pertinent because the implications involve several new paradigmatic ideas.
• Levels of proof: We differentiate several of the major levels of scientific authentication of these findings (specifically in the God Matrix article):

◦ What is proven: For example, the falsification of materialism as based on atomic physics.
◦ What is testable: For example, we demonstrate why gimmel might be linked with gluons; and why silicon can test whether our life elements hypothesis is correct.
What might reflect creative thought and speculation: For example, the metaphor of the God Matrix and gimmel, showing that the gimmel third substance may reflect extended consciousness and even come from infinity. This also has implications for "ordropy" (our term in RBC5 for multidimensional order, which we've postulated relate to the infinite).

The fundamental bases of science are further extended in three recent papers, Neppe VM, Close ER: What is Science? A perspective on the revolutions of change. IQNexus Journal 7: 1; 7-19, 2016.
Neppe VM, Close ER: Re-evaluating our assessments of science: The approach to discovery, applying LFAF to the philosophy of science. IQNexus Journal 7: 1; 20-31, 2016.
These in turn amplify their concept of Neppe VM, Close ER: Interpreting science through feasibility and replicability: Extending the scientific method by applying “Lower Dimensional Feasibility, Absent Falsification” (LFAF). WISE Journal 4: 3; 3-37, 2015.
Dr Neppe and Close have also described the first philosophical mind – body concept which is based on science and mathematics, and can be applied to both day-to-day reality as well as extended consciousness: Neppe VM, Close ER: The fifteenth conundrum: Applying the philosophical model of Unified Monism: Returning to general principles. IQNexus Journal 7: 2; 74-78, 2015.
And Dr Neppe and Close have described in detail a model to explain the mechanisms of psi phenomena: Neppe VM, Close ER: Explaining psi phenomena by applying TDVP principles: A preliminary analysis IQNexus Journal 7: 3; 7-129, 2015.
And similarly, they have proposed relative non-locality: Neppe VM, Close ER: Relative non-locality - key features in consciousness research (seven part series). Journal of Consciousness Exploration and Research 6:2; 90-139, 2015.
