Hello. My name is Kurt Johmann (my photo is below). If you are an intelligent person, and if you have ever wondered about yourself, whether or not you have a past or future beyond your physical body, and whether or not your awareness (aka consciousness) can exist without your physical body, then you may be interested in my own experiences and analysis, given in a book I wrote, which I have described for the print form of the book as follows:
Physical computers are a recent invention of mankind, and they are so useful and can do so much that they have spread thru humanity like wildfire. The position taken in this book is that the reality we experience is itself a result of computations by an underlying network of computing elements that fill 3D space. Physical matter and our physical world and how it all interacts with itself is a result of computations, but the computing elements themselves are not physical, and neither one’s awareness nor one’s mind is physical, despite one currently occupying a physical body.
Beginning at age 19 and continuing up to age 25, the author had hundreds of out-of-body experiences, and that was his primary motivation for writing this book. His background with computers, which includes a PhD in computer science and having done a lot of programming work, allowed him to infer and describe a computed reality that includes the physical but goes far beyond, including, based on his out-of-body experiences, a detailed description of the two stages of the afterlife: the bion-body stage and the lucid-dream stage. Also, one’s time in the afterlife ends with reincarnation.
Parts of this book include algorithms, data structures, code and procedures, for such things as: message transmission thru 3D space; determining relative locations of particles; multicellular development; seeing and manipulating physical atoms; constructing and holding together a bion-body during a bion-body projection so that it maintains the size and shape of the physical body that it came out of; body feelings sent to the awareness; and gravity. Other parts of the book consider many different subjects, including, for example, the subject of ten emotions and the purpose of each: anger, joy, the laughing feeling, depression, happiness, fear, loneliness, the crying feeling, sadness, and anxiety. (The book’s detailed Subject Index will help you find items of interest.)
The book ends with a brief autobiography of the author, which includes a detailed description of his three most important out-of-body experiences: his two solitonic projections and his one dense bion-body projection. There’s also a description of his kundalini injury.
The 12th edition of my book, after about 2½ years of work on it, was completed in 2017 and is titled A Soliton and its owned Bions (Awareness and Mind), and subtitled These Intelligent Particles are how we Survive Death. It is available in three different forms, and each includes the entire text of the 12th edition:
As a Table of Contents webpage linking to eight other webpages on this website, that you can view now. This form of the book is free.
As a single webpage named tciy-12th-ed.html that is in a zip file that you can download and read offline. This form of the book is also free.
As a printed book, at Amazon’s CreateSpace and elsewhere. This costs $17.95 plus shipping. This is an image of the cover of the printed book:
At the time I am writing this paragraph in October 2017, I am 61 years old, retired, and living in Florida. Below is a photo of myself (without my glasses that I normally wear), taken when I was 57 years old:
I created this website to host the 12th edition of my book. Earlier editions—editions 1 thru 11—were titled The Computer Inside You. The previous 11th edition had been hosted since 2006 at my old website johmann.net, but after placing the 12th edition on this website, I removed that 11th edition from that old website.
I finished the text of this 12th edition on September 17, 2017, and on that date I placed the entire text of this 12th edition in the public domain, because my goal for this book is to spread enlightenment as to the true nature of both ourselves and the reality we find ourselves in, and I hope this book will outlive me and I’ll be able to come across it in my next incarnation and be enlightened by it. That, at least, is my hope for this book. Also, this is the last edition of this book that I will be doing. I am satisfied with this 12th edition as my final edition.
Shortly after completing the text of this 12th edition, I made it freely available in its entirety on this website.
The Printed Book
After the 12th edition was on this website, I started work on turning this 12th edition into a printed book (the last time I created a printed book was for the 2nd edition in 1994). On October 20, 2017 I completed this process. Here were the steps involved:
The desktop-publishing program, QuarkXPress 2017, that I had bought to prepare my book for print, does not accept an HTML file as input, so I used Microsoft Word to convert my single tciy-12th-ed.html file into a Microsoft Word docx file, to get the text of my book into QuarkXPress 2017.
I then spent 10 days learning QuarkXPress 2017 and making hundreds of formatting changes. For example, all my HTML <blockquote> occurrences that I had in tciy-12th-ed.html to indent my text in code parts and elsewhere, were discarded by Microsoft Word when it converted my HTML file to a docx file, so I had to reindent everything by hand in QuarkXPress 2017. And besides that, there were many other formatting matters to deal with.
Next I spent 14 days, using QuarkXPress 2017, making a detailed Subject Index for the printed book.
Then I used QuarkXPress 2017 to export my book as a PDF file that I then uploaded to Amazon’s CreateSpace, which is the print-on-demand company that I selected to print my book.
I had already used CreateSpace’s Cover Creator to create the cover for my book (see the image of the book cover above), and after CreateSpace’s PDF approval process was complete, and I had completed several other tasks at CreateSpace such as setting the book’s price and writing the book’s description that will appear on Amazon’s webpage for the book, the process was complete, with a publication date of October 20, 2017.
