WE LIVE IN A

VIRTUAL REALITY

Tom Campbell´s My Big TOE (Theory of Everything) is a revolutionary scientific model explaining why the physical universe emerges from consciousness – and how this gives purpose and meaning to our existence.

Get to Know the Theory

If you’re new to My Big TOE, this is the place to start. A step-by-step introduction to the model explains why our universe is best seen as a virtual reality in which we are players learning to make good choices. What at first glance seems an outlandish claim resolves in a single stroke a multitude of puzzles in physics, philosophy and psychology that had previously resisted rational explanation.

Look at the world as a virtual reality and suddenly e verything starts to make sense.

Meet Tom Campbell

A nuclear physicist who worked in the NASA systems risk analysis, Tom also championed for more than 50 years the drug-free research into altered states of consciousness. Through systematic exploration of his own consciousness,
Tom was able to develop a scientific model of reality explaining how and why the physical world only exists in our minds.

My Big TOE Trilogy

Icon for MBT Books Print, E-Book and Audio Book

The 2003 classic lays out in meticulous detail the My Big TOE model of reality. On 824 pages, Tom engages the reader in a good-humored conversation about physics, philosophy, psychology and the paranormal. Learn all about the evolutionary struggles of consciousness playing avatars in a probabilistic, virtual universe that is but a small subset of an evolving Larger Consciousness System.

"If ever there was a manual to understand what life is about, it is My Big TOE. Had it been written anciently it would have been a Bible that defies making organized religion from it."

Skeptical?

Is this a load of nonsense? Where is the evidence? Isn't consciousness created by the brain? How can one guy alone come up with a Big Theory of Everything?
Skepticism is the right approach. Don't believe anything. My Big TOE is not about belief. It's about scientific evidence, radical rationalism and first-hand experience.
But be open-minded. Always question your own assumptions. Disbelief is just another kind of belief. Consider the possibility that reality is stranger than you ever thought.

Tom's Quantum Physics Experiments

Wave/particle duality, non-locality, random decay: the strangeness of quantum phenomena has puzzled physicists for more than a century – but they’re exactly what one would expect to find in a probabilistic virtual reality simulation. To support My Big TOE’s claim that our physical universe is indeed virtual, Tom has designed a series of quantum physics experiments. If successful, they will also bring us closer to a complete explanation of quantum mechanics.

How to Get Rid of Fear, Ego and Beliefs

Tom discusses the practical applications of My Big TOE in many interviews and as a regular guest in Laurie Huston’s “News for the Heart”. By getting rid of our fear, ego and beliefs we not only fulfill our ultimate purpose in this virtual universe – we also become better human beings, improve our relationships and live happier, more productive lives.

My Big TOE Glossary: What Is an IUOC?

As a Big Theory of Everything, My Big TOE can sometimes get a bit technical. The online glossary contains plain-language definitions of the model’s own terminology, of everyday words such as love, fear and ego, and of technical terms from fields such as information technology, physics, philosophy and parapsychology.

Consciousness

What makes consciousness so special? Why can't it be a product of the brain? My Big TOE sheds light on the most mysterious thing we know.

Information

Information is more than just data – it is meaning, significance, content. Only a consciousness can truly "get" the information encoded in data.

Virtual Reality

Our universe is neither the Matrix nor an ancestor simulation run by future human civilizations. Reality is way more complex – and meaningful.
