This website addresses the most important questions for the survival of our civilisation:

Q1 Why are we trashing the planet and ourselves with weapons of mass destruction and climate change? .
A1 Because we are all programmed with the paradigm of materialism for our survival. Fear of shortages causes adrenalin which switch off our neocortex and our ability to think rationally, so we shoot first and ask questions afterwards.

Q2 What is the solution?
A2 Recognise this fear reaction, take 3 deep breaths, calm down, and look before you leap. Practice meditation. Promote a paradigm shift from materialism to holism.

Reginald’s books (Science v.Materialism 1940, Mind, Life and Body 1951, and Facts and Faith 1955) are a scientific exploration of non-material reality, for which he coined the word ‘diathete’, to create a new science of ‘diathetics’.

John’s papers (see section 9) build on his father’s foundations, but are also influenced by his mother who was a doctor. They describe the disastrous effect that materialism and reductionism has had on conventional medicine, and how a paradigm shift to holism can heal doctors and society. He acknowledges the contribution of his sister, Dr Elinor Kapp.

Holism sees reality as comprising both matter and diathetes. The body is the hardware, the mind is the software, the soul is the operator, and the spirit is the internet. You are neither your body nor your mind, but your soul which is eternal. You do not have to fear death, so can stop worrying about material shortages and live sustainably in the moment.
