Society of Spiritual Physics (SSP) is an organization designed to serve as a keystone in the bridge between science and spirituality
Greetings and welcome to the SSP Home page.
My name is Dr. Theodore St. John, founder and president of The Society of Spiritual Physics. The purpose of this organization is to create a vocation, a branch of science similar to Medical Physics (my current profession and doctorate). However, rather than focusing only on mainstream physics and medicine, Spiritual Physics will focus on the science behind our spiritual nature – something that has been sidelined for many years by the materialist perspective. Physics is supposed to be a study of the underlying essence of reality, and if spirituality is part of reality – even if it is complementary to the material part of reality - it deserves to be understood in scientific terms.
The basis for my devotion to this is my own spiritual, transcendence experience in 1992 that eventually led to my paper: ”The Unity of Space and Time” – a theory that treats spacetime as a process, a unified essence that we perceive as motion which we conceptually separate into two complementary aspects, i.e. space divided by time. An experience of timelessness, which is a spiritual experience itself, is a deep awareness of the unity – a profound feeling of knowing that time is only a concept and that we are part of this eternal process. When it happened to me, I realized that we are missing something vital in our understanding of reality. In response to that experience, I went to graduate school and achieved a Master’s degree in physics. I discovered that Quantum Physics provides important concepts that allow us to better understand our spiritual nature. Of course my QM professor did not discuss the concepts with any hint of spiritual context, but there are those who believe that mankind is ready for the spiritual context to become part of mainstream science. All that is needed is the willingness to recognize the non-material aspect of the creative process. The author of the QM text book, Dr. Amit Goswami, has laid the groundwork in several of his books – starting with The Self-Aware Universe; how consciousness creates the material world, and his latest book, The Quantum Activist. I recommend the Youtube video (The Quantum Activist) for more information.
The purpose of this organization (SSP) is to create the basis for an educational program leading to a degree called Spiritual Physics. There are many mainstream physicists who practice meditation (mostly in private), who would contribute to a better understanding of our spiritual nature, but a career in physics encourages a focus on the mainstream physical model. There are also people who call themselves Spiritual Physicists without having any education in physics and they use the terminology in such a way that demonstrates a lack of understanding, which creates (or fortifies) a disdain by mainstream physicists. The title of Spiritual Physicist needs to be an earned title, reserved for those who have the honesty, intelligence, and willingness to study a broad range of information that needs to be understood in order to grasp this astronomically important concept. This may include religion, philosophy, and mythology, as well as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. A spiritual experience can happen spontaneously, and anyone can have an intuitive grasp of what it means to them, but understanding it in terms of science takes a concerted effort. It’s beginning to enter science via mental health professionals, in terms of Mind-Body Medicine, but I submit that it can be understood in terms of physics – i.e. Process Physics - a physics of Unity.
Anyone is welcome to become a member of SSP at no cost, to help build the foundation and curricula stated in the Mission statement, and then to help support those who succeed in obtaining the degree to provide guidance to the rest of humanity as they reach that level of awareness.
The society and this website are relatively new and still require a tremendous amount of work. We only have a few members and we are still working on the organizational structure and bylaws.
