Here is a link to the Kindle page for the TOE booklet, which also has a quick link to the mind-body book. The ebook version of the TOE booklet is updated with new findings made since 2005.

Quantum theory is reconstructed using standalone causal sets. The frequency ratios inherent in causal sets are used to define energy-ratios, implicating the causal link as the quantum of action. Space-time and its particle-like sequences are then constructed from causal links. A 4-D time-lattice pattern is defined and used to model neutrinos and electron clouds, which together constitute our 4-D manifold. A 6-D time-lattice is used to model the nucleons. The integration of the nucleus with its electron cloud allows calculation of the mass-ratio of the proton (or the neutron) with respect to the electron. Arrow diagrams, along with several ball-and-stick models, are used to streamline the presentation.

This thread on a physics forum has a down-loadable PDF of my paper, “Eliminative Panpsychism.”  It’s an early draft of my article “Finite Eventism” in David Skrbina’s book Mind that Abides: Panpsychism in the new millennium, Benjamins, 2009.

“The Adequacy of Language for Finite Domains of Reference”  — The paper above summarizes the logic and language underpinning the reduction of physics to temporal succession.  It was written for a Whitehead conference held in Salzburg in 2006.

The above link takes you to an essay “Challenging the Assumptions that Conflict with Causal Set Theory.”  It’s my best general summary of causal set theory.
