Correcting Aristotle

Taken from the book The ABC’s of the New Physics by Claudia Pacheco.

Claudia: An English translation of Norberto Keppe’s book, The New Physics, has recently been completed. This profound book is an exploration of Trilogical Physics and is based on a disinversion of metaphysics. I have been using some of the contents of this book in our teleclasses to look at psychogenetics, energy, the laws of Physics and the link between the biological, physical and metaphysical sciences. We cannot separate the understanding and study of those areas because they affect each other substantially.

Simply put, we cannot fully understand what happens in human psychology if we do not understand Physics that is based on a true metaphysics. We can’t understand what happens in our psycho-genetics without this link either because there is a connection between all these elements.

This book, The New Physics, is a little difficult for beginners to understand. For one thing, the book is highly scientific. Keppe discusses many of the ideas from traditional Physics in order to explain his new Physics, and since most of us have never studied Physics this will be a challenge to understand. To better understand, we will go step-by-step and review each concept. This is why we have invited Cesar Sóos to join us in these discussions, so we can make sure that we cover the ABCs of Physics as we consider Keppe’s deep and profound book. Cesar is a mining engineer and a researcher in both Physics and metaphysics. I think it is safe to say that he is the foremost researcher in Keppean metaphysics in the world today. We’re also fortunate to have Alexander and Roberto Frascari joining us as well. Both Alex and Roberto are engineers who have been deeply involved in Physics and scientific research for many years now. They bring with them a wealth of understanding and knowledge in this complex but vitally important area.

A good place to begin our discussions about this book would be the introduction: Ever since I received a degree in philosophy—the basis of which was Aristotelian metaphysics—from FAI (Faculdades Associadas do Ipiranga) and Catholic Pontifical University, I have been trying to convey that the process of knowledge is spontaneous and that science comes from act (which is the whole) and not from something potential (which is partial). Therefore, this book investigates what I call psychoenergetics and psychogenetics, the study of an underlying energetic factor, and the transmission of psychological elements in the human being—indeed psychotics carry abnormal psychotypes (and neurotics clearly less.)

Cesar: There is a lot to be said about this first paragraph, isn’t there? I think what is most important to understand is that all of science as we know it today—be it Physics, biology or psychology—is based upon Aristotelian philosophy. However, we are not told this in school when we study these disciplines. An analogy might be that Aristotelian metaphysics is the soil and our science is the tree that grows in this soil. If the soil has a problem, the tree will also have a problem. What Keppe has managed is a correction of Aristotelian metaphysics—a correction that allows us to perceive very clearly the problem with the current scientific view, or, continuing our analogy, with the soil the scientific tree is growing in. And what is the problem that Aristotelian metaphysics passed on to our scientists? Well, let’s approach this from the age-old question: which came first, the chicken or the egg? This has been a big conundrum for centuries, because the chicken came from an egg, but that egg came from a chicken, and that chicken came from an egg and so on. We have never been able to figure out which came first. Keppe has given us a new orientation with his discovery of the phenomenon of Inversion. He was able to correct the Aristotelian metaphysics by saying that all knowledge comes from the abstract concept. For example, the egg already has the form of the chicken inside; the complete form of the chicken is in the egg. So we can say that what comes first is the whole and then come the parts. What comes first is the origin of life, the origin of objects, the origin of things in reality. The parts are already complete. Nothing needs to be completed in the future, through a process of evolution.

Evolutionists would have us believe what? That the chicken evolved from some inferior life form over billions of years until arriving at the current physical shape we call a chicken today. Conceivably, then, over the next one hundred billion years or so, it could become something else, but for now, it’s “locked” into the form of today’s chicken. For evolutionists, the parts are drawn together randomly (and mysteriously) and then modified in response to external stimuli, especially related to survival; for Keppe, the parts are organized together in relation to a prior complete idea—which would be in

God’s mind. Understand the distinction? One perpetrates the idea of random chance and mutation to arrive at a whole; the other bases itself on a complete reality that exists prior to its manifestation—complete—in the material realm.

In Keppe’s metaphysics, we must think first of complete things. The parts, then, come from these complete things. So it’s the chicken that comes first. We will have a better understanding of these concepts as we continue our discussion.

Claudia: Keppe also mentions psychoenergetics and psychogenetics in the text we’ve just been reading, and these are important terms for us to study. A lot of scientific schools of psycho-pathological thought ask the question, does a person inherit malignant characteristics that determine his pathological behavior? In other words, is a person born a schizophrenic or does he develop this later because of cultural and social influences or sexual complexes? Depending on a person’s beliefs, one might think that genetic factors are most important in these cases, or that environmental factors influence the person, or that it’s a matter of free choice or something inside the person. What exactly is what in determining the behavior of a person?

Keppe emphasizes how greatly science is interconnected—particularly genetics, which is not only physical. He is introducing us to psycho-genetics, meaning that things are psychological and physical at the same time. The DNA can influence our psychological lives and vice versa, and through the RNA, the social and cultural elements can influence a person’s DNA. That’s how analysis or environment can influence genetics. This process is very beautiful, and if we didn’t interfere in it things would work perfectly.

Cesar: There is a field of genetics today called epigenetics. Epi means the source of, or the cause. Scientists today are puzzled by the fact that in a pair of identical twins, one can present symptoms of schizophrenia while the other might not. If twins have exactly the same genetic code, and if schizophrenia supposedly comes from genetic factors, how to explain that only one of them develops the disease? What’s even more puzzling is the fact that human beings have inborn genetic correctors for these conditions. What causes the correctors to work or not to work in a person? We can begin to see that these correctors are connected to the way a person thinks, which leads us to the psychological life of the person; our attitudes, our ways of reasoning with regard to reality, our willingness to accept or not to deal with our problems—these will be the important factors that affect our DNA. We can even say that these factors can force our DNA to change for the better or for the worse.


In order to understand Physics, we have first to grasp all the energetic elements that are involved in magnetism, and its immediate derivatives: electricity, electronics (force and motion, light, chemistry, time and space). Everything that exists is energetic vibration in its structure, also appearing in gaseous, liquid and solid form. The same energy that elaborates time and space constitutes the human being; that is the reason why we are living inside them. Physics is a fundamental science whose laws have immediate universal application, if they are properly understood in their true dimension.

This book is divided into seven parts, with the three first ones related to the study of Physics; for the readers who are not acquainted with this field and have no patience to decipher it, I suggest they go to the last four ones which deal with the human and social pathology that has arisen from the vibratory and energetic element of that science. I also show that it is not necessary to unify the phenomena in Physics, but just to discover how they are already unified in their origin (the fifth part). Next, I explore the close relationship between genetics and Physics, the latter being the way to know not only biology, but psychology itself—closing the cycle of knowledge with metaphysics (sixth and seventh parts). In general, I am trying to show the existing identity among Physics, biology and psychology.

Experimentation alone is not enough to explain all the phenomena encompassed by a science, so that the researcher has to resort to the deductive area of his habit of thinking in order to make comparisons and to succeed in comprehending well the significance of the experiment. The modern researcher has to perceive that a question of science, philosophy and theology is just a matter of dimension; in comparison with Physics science would be similar to movement, philosophy to magnetism and theology to electricity. As we know, movement is typically human, magnetism already involves a greater dimension (dealing with strange factors), and electricity the great dynamo of action that affects everything—although the order appears to us to be reversed!

Cesar: Let me make one comment about the fifth part of the previous section when Keppe says, “I also show that it is not necessary to unify the phenomena in Physics but simply discover how they are already unified in their origin.” Scientists today believe that the origin of all sources of energy comes from particles like electrons, protons and sub particles inside the atom and because scientists think this way, they try to unify the physical. Scientists are trying to reach the single source of energy through the unification of these different particles. For example, they want to know which particle is responsible for magnetism, which is responsible for the other force of gravity, which is responsible for binding the atom together, and so on. At the end of this search, scientists have theorized that there are four different particles responsible for all forces in nature (Strong, Weak, Electromagnetic and Gravity), but they have been unsuccessful in finding these particles because, in fact, particles are not responsible for these forces. It’s exactly the opposite actually; the particles come from a single force. The forces do not need to be unified from particles because the particles are already consequences of a unified force in nature. The problem is that scientists today base their findings on a materialistic philosophy, which means that scientists understand, believe and accept what they can find in laboratories and what they can sense through their instruments and devices. If a scientist can’t study a phenomenon with his senses, through lab instruments, he discards it as non-existent. This is the case with intelligent extraterrestrial life, survival of the soul after physical death, instant communication faster than the speed of light, and so on.

Phenomena that fall outside current scientific means of measurement are relegated to the field of superstition and fantasy—even delirium. As Keppe states, science today is based on a strictly materialistic approach that is inverted, and because of this, science cannot explain the phenomena that fall outside current measurement capabilities. Keppe’s disinverted metaphysics makes it clear that the unified energy in the universe is a transcendental energy, and this transcendental energy cannot be captured and measured by devices or instruments—just like our thoughts, which cannot be measured in the laboratory.

For example, a sculptor has an idea for a statue. He takes a block of stone and begins to shape it according to the figure he has in his mind. It’s impossible for anyone to know what image the sculptor has until after the figure begins to take shape in the stone. What I just described is the process of transferring an abstract, transcendental image into the physical realm. Essential, universal energy is similar to the sculptor’s idea in his mind and is undetectable using instruments. In Keppe’s metaphysics, the very existence of matter is proof of the existence of an essential form of energy beyond the matter that is constantly supporting it within space and time; otherwise the matter would instantly disintegrate. Essential energy is the energy responsible for the creation of matter itself, but because of our materialistic viewpoint, we believe in only what we can touch, see, feel, etc. This is our big mistake. As Keppe says, “This energy already exists and it’s there to be used.”

Magnetism is a manifestation of this essential energy in the physical world. Although you can’t see magnetism, you feel it when you bring a magnet close to iron. It’s obvious there is a force operating behind the phenomenon, but as I explained before, scientists tend to believe that this magnetism comes from particles, i.e., electrons that orbit around the atomic nucleus. And because scientists are basing their theories on Aristotelian metaphysics, they consider that the process moves from the lesser to the greater, which leads to their insisting that magnetism comes from these particles called electrons. By using this approach, scientists never reach the true cause of magnetism, which is this essential energy.

In Keppe’s view, electricity is magnetism in movement. For example, in simple terms, a turbine is a spinning magnet. When the magnet spins, it grasps electricity from this essential or scalar energy field, and this magnetism in motion then essentially “pumps” the electricity out into the physical dimension. So electricity is also a by-product of this essential, scalar energy, as is magnetism. Magnetism and electricity are secondary energies that originate from this scalar energy, not primary sources of scalar energy.

The limited view established by Aristotelian metaphysics has misled quantum physicists to believe that nothing would exist prior to these quantum packets of energy. The consequence of this view is that the whole background of reality, the supporting web of essential energy, has been hidden from science. This concept must be clarified in order to understand what essential energy is.

Claudia: The same explanation that Cesar gave for Physics applies equally well to psychology, biology and human beings. Cesar explained that all physical manifestations of energy and all matter are byproducts of this essential scalar energy, which is transcendental and invisible. Well, we can say the same about being. Our being is not just the sum of the material elements of brain and heart and organs and thoughts and feelings.

We are whole beings, and our beings come directly from this scalar, essential energy. All the other elements are byproducts of this being. Thought, feeling, motion, action, everything is a byproduct of the being, which is the direct, essential energy coming from God.

In the statement, “Science would be similar to movement, philosophy to magnetism, theology to electricity,” things become subtle, more refined as you approach electricity and theology. And in keeping with our metaphysical orientation now, remember that reality occurs first from the higher elements and moves down to the lower. In this respect, we could consider electricity as the first element that comes from scalar energy and leads to the phenomena of magnetism and motion. Keppe also considers that this electricity and theology would be love in a deeper sense. We can see that love is the primary element in our lives. Love gives form to everything else. Love is the primary and first element that comes directly from scalar or essential energy. Love is the great dynamo that moves everything.

Continuing our move upward, we could also say that essential energy could rightly be called divine energy. This divine energy is expressed through love, which is the great force that moves and activates everything, inseparable from movement and magnetism.

Cesar: We human beings are like motors that need to work in order to live longer. A car sitting in a garage breaks down much faster than one that is in constant use.

Magnetism is like an intermediate element between transcendence and matter. If we want to let the essential energy flow through us, we must put ourselves into action—but not any kind of action; we must act in accordance with the universal laws, which are goodness, beauty and truth. A magnet standing still does not transfer essential energy to the physical world. But if a magnet is spinning, it can generate electricity. Now, transferring this to human experience, we cannot be healthy if we do not act. We could say that every human being has a certain charisma, and this charisma is like magnetism that needs to be set in motion so as to complete the cycle of energy from transcendence to matter.

Claudia: If we want to get closer to God and manifest the energy of love, and experience more love, which is the highest level of energy in us, we should act. If you want to be better, if you want to get better, move yourself. Feel good things, think good things and use those inspirations to drive your actions. Act approaches goodness, truth and love. Motion and movement help us to grasp more of this essential energy in our lives.

Cesar: When we’re in good thought and good action, we grasp more of this energy. Claudia: Mostly good actions will enable us to grasp more essential energy. The good thoughts will come as a consequence of this and then love will pour into us.


In order for the intuition to function properly the individual needs to have his mind in order, and for that to happen the conscientization of errors is fundamental. Therefore, there is no other way out but the knowledge of psychopathology, so that the psychopathology does not impede the existence of truth. It is from the perception of the negative aspect that the positive arises, because merely the fact of noting its “existence” obliges the individual to search for the true element—that is to say that he had already been living in what was right, which was precisely what led him to recognize his mistake. Psychological life, being energy, has a dynamism which is unimaginable at first sight. The complete understanding of a phenomenon causes great satisfaction, because it lets into one’s inner self both external facts and especially those of one’s inner life; it is the best way of relating to a perfect and pleasant reality, so attacked and destroyed by the intransigence of those who have risen to power.

Claudia: In the previous paragraph, Keppe was talking about intuition. In the tsunami that occurred recently (editor’s note: this was on December 26, 2004), there were many people who saved themselves and others through this intuitive sense. Actually, there were a few people and many animals. There are reasons why we are unable to use these energetic, intuitive powers much anymore. Keppe attributes this to errors or pathology (the religious people say it’s because of sin), but it’s clear we don’t have access to intuitive power as much as we should. We could receive a lot of help from this energetic level through intuition but, unfortunately, our pathology blocks much of our ability to use intuitive powers. The tsunami is an example in practical terms of why we need to develop an understanding of intuitive power and why we don’t access and use it properly. Even animals do this easily.

Cesar: The human being is living inside this sea of essential energy, this ocean of love. If we don’t act in accordance with this, we will not be able to participate in the organizing harmonic powers of these energies, and the subsequent result will be sickness and loss of intuition.

Human beings today are very pathological—to the point where we could be compared to fish that refuse to live in the water. We want to be detached from reality and think that it is possible to live like this. We mostly think about ourselves—our things, our houses, our relationships, our families and money—and in thinking in this way, we’re not practicing love, which is our essence. We’re not thinking about giving to the world, we’re thinking about taking from the world, and this causes us to invert the sense of our actions. And by doing this, we act against ourselves because we sever the flow of this vital energy through us. The consequences of this are mental and physical illness. If we refuse to accept the idea of what we are doing, we block our intuition and then begin to blame other factors for our misfortune.

Claudia: We should also see that taking care of our dogs and houses and money first comes from an inverted thought, because if we really want to take care of ourselves, we should take care of what is essential, which is our eternal being. So we are not really even taking care of ourselves properly. We are inverted and upside down and almost totally attached to material things. We think that the sensorial life is the best we can achieve, when what is in our best interests is our being, our essence, that direct link to divine energy that we have in ourselves, and this is what we attack and violate and destroy all the time.

Cesar: Our outside, external world is a mirror image of our inner life and the way I treat this external world is exactly the way I treat myself. But we are looking outside and not inside. So if I have good action towards the external world it means that I take good action toward myself and so I will be the first one to benefit from this action. We have to be very careful when we think about things that happen around us and to really understand that the way I react to those things has internal meaning to me. When I am angry or full of hatred or some other bad feeling, I must first see that these attitudes are against me primarily, preventing me from grasping essential, scalar energy and being healthy.

Participant: One of the things that seems important to me is that if this essential energy comes from outside us, then even the great things we accomplish when we help other people are not solely down to us, are they? I think sometimes what tends to happen is that we say, “Wow, now I’m really being great. See all the good things I’m doing. Look at me now. Look how good I’m being.” This could be a form of megalomania, couldn’t it? Taking credit for something that is not solely to our credit. We need to be very humble.

Claudia: The greatest artists say that their creativity doesn’t come from them; the greatest scientists say that their discoveries are inspired. I think eventually when you all become more familiar with this way of thinking that you will find a whole new mentality, a whole new weltanschauung (philosophy of life), because this is a whole new dimension that we are bringing through these teleclasses. In the beginning this may sound like Greek to you or something that is coming from another planet that you don’t understand, but eventually you will enter this new dimension and it will start opening your mind and altering your perspective.
