"Through the Barrier" is a collection of nine papers. They are presented exactly as originally published by the author without revision or editing. The papers describe a theory concerning the fundamental nature of our universe. They were written in essentially the same sequence as the development of the theory itself, and thus tell a story of the author's own enlightenment.
The material is directed at hath the layman and scientist. The layman will find advanced concepts made clear and be led into new ways of perceiving. The scientist will find challenge in new formulations and should have his outlook broadened. Both, however, will find that the material must be read carefully and slowly for its full comprehension. On turning the last page, the true seeker wi1l have realized the substance of the author's theory. That substance may be summarized as a precise mental concept which makes the following metaphysical statements at long last perfectly logical and consistent.
"We see the great truths that everything is within everything, that all things exist at all times, that the outside is the inside, and strangest of all that dynamic changes in space and time have no reality apart from our self awareness of them!"
Said by Sir Edgar to Albert
The nine papers build one upon the other and are meant to be read in sequence. The first paper employs an imaginary space voyage as a literary device and is a broad exposition of the author's concept of the universe.
The second paper is a formal mathematical presentation and summary of the first.
The third paper is again more informal and explains how many diverse phenomena (Hying saucers, ancient astronauts, etc. ) tie in with the author's concept.
The fourth and fifth papers examine in detail the nearby galaxies and give support to the author's contention that they form a true atom.
The sixth paper shifts emphasis to the electron and also introduces a "warp grid" associated with the earth. The seventh paper expands on this warp grid and gives greater precision to the structure of space in relation to the mind.
The eighth paper is titled "Odds and Ends" and covers several short topics.
The ninth and final paper examines ancient Mayan drawings in detail and provides an original translation of astounding significance to modern man!
