Throughout the millennia, mankind has mused over seemingly unanswerable questions: Is there life after death? Is there a God? What are we? Derbyshire scientist Ron Pearson believes that he may have discovered the missing link of physics, which would answer all the mysteries of the universe. Feature writer David Clensy reports.
It is quite an admission by anyone's standards, but Matlock-born scientist Ron Pearson believes that he may hold the answers to the secrets of the universe.
He says that his theory of the universe, which he has been working on for almost 20 years, solves many issues around supernatural activity, life after death and even the existence of a god.
But the 77-year-old, who says that he has always been an agnostic, claims that orthodox science refuses to even listen to his explanations on the true structure of existence.
"After 20 years of working out how the universe must have developed, I concluded that the ether does exist.
"I think that it's like an all-encompassing neural network, which transcends all matter in the universe and I think that this network would eventually develop a consciousness and actively create life and the way that living things see the universe.
"If you like, this ether is a kind of secular god. And as we're part of this ether too, when our physical body dies, our soul - the part of our mind which is not linked to the body - remains part of the ether.
"This means that we effectively have life after death - at least the soul part of our mind has life after death."
Now, after almost 20 years of theoretical musing, Ron plans to set about proving that his theory is correct - but he doesn't except that to be easy.
"I know that orthodox science will do whatever it can to prevent my work from taking place, because its existence would discredit all modern science.
"In fact I couldn't even get my theory published in the West. I had to travel to St Petersburg, in Russia, a couple of years ago just to get it printed."
