about

regression (n.)
early 15c., from Latin regressionem (nominative regressio) "a going back, a return," noun of action from past participle stem of regredi.

In 1927, J.W. Dunne wrote "An Experiment with Time" developing the Theory of Serialism. Here, he points out that the physical brain itself inhabits only t1 (physical time), requiring a second level of mind to inhabit t2 (a higher dimension of Time) and it is at this level that the observer experiences consciousness.

He found that his logic led to a similar difficulty with t2 in that the passage between successive events in t2 was not included in the model. This led to an even higher t3 in which a third-level observer could experience not just the mass of events in t2 but the passage of those experiences in t2, and so on in the infinite regress of time dimensions and observers which gives the theory its name.

Dunne suggested that when we die, it is only our physical selves in t1 who die and that our higher selves are outside of mundane time. Our conscious selves therefore have no mechanism to die in the same kind of way and are effectively immortal. At the end of the chain he proposed a "superlative general observer, the fount of all ... consciousness".
