My sent e-mail for many researchers and colleagues
Without any vanity, I believe that my discoveries related to the brain and visual representation will open up a new area, when it can be really understand by scientists, in the brain research, cell research, artificial intelligence, visual prosthesis and several further areas. In spite of this, I currently live in Hungary, day by day, I can barely sustain my financial life. The Visual Research Institute is non-profit, I do not go money. My partner and son are unemployed. But, so many researchers like my new models, without concrete some minor financial support and assistance, I can have not chance. I have stopped my research, I just 2 papers coming that was previously submitted. This is the life on the Earth.
Reply from Professor Persinger:
Dear Dr. Bokkon,
I have read your email several times. I am saddened by the fact, as you aptly concluded, that genius is not recognized in any substantive manner by the person's contemporary culture.
The negligence of acknowledgement of such exceptional scientists and thinkers, such as you, by funding agencies in my opinion is reflective of a process that has almost extinguished the creative spirit.
Although there has been the insidious infiltration of over-regulation and rigid control from almost every government structure, the major responsibility for the demise of scientific inquiry originates from most modern scientists who hide their prejudices and cognitive rigidity behind anonymous "peer" reviews, rumour, and social corruption.
If there is any consolation, you are not alone. There are kindred scientists now and from the past that share this burden with you.
If you surrender to these most oppressive forces from the conservative status quo and the fear of pursuing the unknown, humanity cannot progress.
We are on the cusp of a change in social and scientific paradigm.
Never give up Colleague.
I would need supporter for that I can go ahead with my researches!

I deal with the natural biophysical substrate of visual perception and visual imagery. The main goal of my research is to prove that intrinsic pictures can be emerged by redox and biophoton processes in retinotopically organized neurons of visual areas during visual imagery, visual hallucination, and REM dream pictures within the brain.
Kosslyn`s reality simulation principle states that visual mental imagery mimics the corresponding events in the world. However, my concept of intrinsic biophysical visual virtual reality (by bioluminescent photons and iterative processes) in early retinotopic areas may be nothing else than the first possible biophysical basis of the reality simulation principle.
I hope that my researcher of biophysical picture representation can bring a brand new ways in the brain and cellular researchers, visual prosthesis, and artificial intelligence in the future. I can explain numerous brain related phenomena by biophysical picture representation model in a convergent manner (such as: phosphenes, negative afterimages, saccades, blind sight, visual imagery and perception, REM dream pictures, visual hallucination, autism, savant skill, some color illusions, synaesthesia, etc.
I do not claim to solve the secret of consciousness, but propose that the evolution in the higher levels of complexity made possible the emergence of intrinsic picture representation of the external visual world by regulated redox and bioluminescent biophotons in the visual system during visual perception and visual imagery.
