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.

# Links to online papers

Here are links to my key papers online:

**Finite Eventism** gives the philosophy of science of Russell and Whitehead’s event ontology. The concluding section gives an account of the mind-brain interaction sequence by treating the brain and its “dominant monad” as a purely sequential formation, or causal set.

**Causal Set Theory and the Origin of Mass-ratio**

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.

**The Adequacy of Language for Finite Domains of Reference** — This paper 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.

**Whitehead and the Reduction of Matter to Mind** is an informal paper focused on Whitehead’s panpsychism of occasions of experience engaged in temporal/causal succession to form the physical universe.

**Challenging the Assumptions that Conflict with Causal Set Theory** This entry in a fqxi contest is my customized introduction to causal set theory.
