The Geometric Structure of the More Fundamental Reality that Underlies Physical Reality

Steven E. Kaufman


This work presents a model of reality that represents a synthesis of the relativistic physics of Albert Einstein and the geometric spatial science of Buckminster Fuller. The result of this synthesis is an anatomical and visualizable model of reality, referred to as the relational matrix model, that demonstrates that the interrelations between space, time, energy, and matter mathematically described by Einstein in his relativity theories all exist as a function of relations that arise and exist naturally both between and within different levels of a geometric reality structure that exists where we perceive physical reality to be. Evidence that this way of modeling reality accurately reflects the way in which reality is actually structured, underlying the surface appearance that is physical experiential reality, is presented by using the relational matrix model to model the behavior of electromagnetic radiation and matter in a way that reveals the actual nature and basis of both chronological time and mass, as well as why both chronological time and mass are relative to material velocity. Once that evidence has been presented, the case is then made that if humanity is to continue to progress rather than decline as a species, human beings are going to have to overcome what seems to be our natural aversion to recognizing and accepting that physical reality is not what is actually there, where it appears to be. And we must do this so that we can finally begin to recognize and deal with reality as it actually exists, which is as something that is completely interconnected and inseparable from itself, rather than as it only physically appears to exist, which is as something that is completely separable and divisible from itself. Because as will be described, the aggressive human behaviors that continue to put us, as a species, at ever-increasing risk of wiping ourselves off the face of the planet, as a result of the self-inflicted wounds that invariably accompany such behaviors, have as their basis nothing more than the human belief that reality actually exists in the divisive way that physical reality appears to exist.
