The Holographic Universe, Perceiving Reality!

The Holographic UniverseThe holographic universe is a book by Michael Talbot, (1953-1992), he was also the author of a number of books highlighting parallels between ancient mysticism and quantum mechanics, and espousing a theoretical model of reality that suggests the physical universe is akin to a giant hologram.

The main architects of this astonishing idea were two eminent thinkers, the first one was David Bohm, a protege of Einstein, physicist in the University of London and one of the world’s most respected quantum physicists. The second was Karl Pribram, a neurophysiologist at Stanford University and author of the classic neuropsychological textbook Languages of the Brain.

The most interesting part is both Bohm and Pribram worked in two different fields and arrived at the same conclusion from two very different directions.The Holographic Universe Bohm became convinced of the universe’s holographic nature only after years of dissatisfaction with standard theories’ inability to explain all of the phenomena encountered in quantum physics. Pribram became convinced because of the failure of standard theories of the brain to explain various neurophysiological puzzles. Anyway, enough of that talk its kind of difficult to understand these principles when you have not experienced shifts in the space time continuum in your head.

These two videos will explain the part of the holographic universe and how our brain perceives, its a very well made video to enable understanding of these principles.

Earlier I had written on a Conscious and Participatory universe, where we had quoted Gregg Braden, and included a couple of his interviews, this video bridges the gap in understanding our place in the holographic universe.

The experiment that kick started the entire concept of the holographic universe was Alain Aspects’ in 1982 at the University of Paris related to the EPR Experiment, a consciousness experiment which had been devised by Albert Einstein, and his colleagues, Poldlsky and Rosen, in order to disprove Quantum Mechanics on the basis of the Pauli Exclusion Principle contradicting Special Relativity.

Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing.

The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein’s long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain Aspect’s findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations.

While the finer points are beyond me I do understand the concept of holography being interference waves which become the picture when a second focused light shines on the interference wave patterns. Maybe this is memory.
The important point being that the reflection mirrors store unimaginable amounts of data and then alter the angle (maybe just 1 degree, fraction of a degree, I don’t know) and you can store all this and more again, move the angle, same thing. Think of maybe sets of mirrors, any of whose angle can be altered.
That means there has to be a key or gate address, take you pick, that sets the specific memory-location. We have no idea of how this works. My guess is we never will.
Think diamonds: in order for the diamond to have the sparkle, the cut at the bottom has to be exact. Too wide and the light is not caught, too narrow and too much. The exact angle is 45.75 degrees. This catches the light. We will never know our address or angle. We do not have that ability. We are playing at science and we cant even do fission. Lasers are locked at the same level. We get to the fine print and things become too difficult.
No faster than SOL. But then again I never thought the 2nd law was anything but immutable.
Consider the Hoag stellar object. There it is, what appears to be a brand new globular cluster. If indeed it is a new cluster, then all the laws of physics are overthrown. That is the problem with the neutrinos that enter the Earth. There aren’t leaving. Are they adding mass? Again, physics is on shaky ground.
Conjecture: since we have immutable globular cluster and super clusters, existing since time, and all in darn good shape, what can we say about our poor spiral galaxies? Are they destined to consume energy and expand anistrophically from the magnetic trap (aka black hole) into a beautiful globular cluster? That is in violation of the 2nd Law. Are they collapsed clusters whose jets blew energy out? But then why us and not the oldest clusters? They seem to hang on to their energy permanently; they are immortal. This describes what astrophysicists call broken symmetry. This quantum locality is the problem that led Bohn to the deeper layer which in turn sounds a lot like how the ancient pre history Egyptians explained the beginning: the watery Abyss but it was nothing, had no quality. The Creative Principal Atum parted the Abyss and pushed out the sun. Atum (shown as a dung beetle) made Ma at and then Shu. Seems a lot more simplier but the same.
