The Holographic Universe . abilitiesof the mind, the unsolved riddles of brain and body, and the true nature of theuniverse. The Universe book image. Michael Coleman Talbot (September 29, – May 27, ) was an American author of several 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 hologram based on the of "The Holographic Universe" (includes Talbot's Introduction to the book). The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot - book cover, description, publication history.

Bohm is not the only researcher who has found evidence that the universe is a hologram. Working independently in the field of brain research, Standford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram has also become persuaded of the holographic nature of reality. The brain as a hologram Pribram was drawn to the holographic model by the puzzle of how and where memories are stored in the brain. For decades numerous studies have shown that rather than being confined to a specific location, memories are dispersed throughout the brain.

In a series of landmark experiments in the s, brain scientist Karl Lashley found that no matter what portion of a rat's brain he removed he was unable to eradicate its memory of how to perform complex tasks it had learned prior to surgery.

The only problem was that no one was able to come up with a mechanism that might explain this curious 'whole in every part' nature of memory storage. Then in the s Pribram encountered the concept of holography and realized he had found the explanation brain scientists had been looking for. Pribram believes memories are encoded not in neurons, or small groupings of neurons, but in patterns of nerve impulses that crisscross the entire brain in the same way that patterns of laser light interference crisscross the entire area of a piece of film containing a holographic image.

In other words, Pribram believes the brain is itself a hologram. Pribram's theory also explains how the human brain can store so many memories in so little space.

It has been estimated that the human brain has the capacity to memorize something on the order of 10 billion bits of information during the average human lifetime or roughly the same amount of information contained in five sets of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Similarly, it has been discovered that in addition to their other capabilities, holograms possess an astounding capacity for information storage -- simply by changing the angle at which the two lasers strike a piece of photographic film, it is possible to record many different images on the same surface.

It has been demonstrated that one cubic centimeter of film can hold as many as 10 billion bits of information.

The Holographic Universe – The World and Mind As Hologram

Our uncanny ability to quickly retrieve whatever information we need from the enormous store of our memories becomes more understandable if the brain functions according to holographic principles. If a friend asks you to tell him what comes to mind when he says the word 'zebra', you do not have to clumsily sort back through some gigantic and cerebral alphabetic file to arrive at an answer. Instead, associations like 'striped', 'horselike', and 'animal native to Africa' all pop into your head instantly.

Indeed, one of the most amazing things about the human thinking process is that every piece of information seems instantly cross- correlated with every other piece of information -- another feature intrinsic to the hologram.

Because every portion of a hologram is infinitely interconnected with every other portion, it is perhaps nature's supreme example of across-correlated system. The storage of memory is not the only neuro physiological puzzle that becomes more tractable in light of Pribram's holographic model of the brain. Another is how the brain is able to translate the avalanche of frequencies it receives via the senses light frequencies, sound frequencies, and so on into the concrete world of our perceptions.

Encoding and decoding frequencies is precisely what a hologram does best. Just as a hologram functions as a sort of lens, a translating device able to convert an apparently meaningless blur of frequencies into a coherent image, Pribram believes the brain also comprises a lens and uses holographic principles to mathematically convert the frequencies it receives through the senses into the inner world of our perceptions. An impressive body of evidence suggests that the brain uses holographic principles to perform its operations.

Pribram's theory, in fact, has gained increasing support among neurophysiologists. Argentinian-Italian researcher Hugo Zucarelli recently extended the holographic model into the world of acoustic phenomena. Puzzled by the fact that humans can locate the source of sounds without moving their heads, even if they only possess hearing in one ear, Zucarelli discovered that holographic principles can explain this ability.

Zucarelli has also developed the technology of holophonic sound, a recording technique able to reproduce acoustic situations with an almost uncanny realism. Pribram's belief that our brains mathematically construct 'hard' reality by relying on input from a frequency domain has also received a good deal of experimental support. It has been found that each of our senses is sensitive to a much broader range of frequencies than was previously suspected.

Researchers have discovered, for instance, that our visual systems are sensitive to sound frequencies, that our sense of smell is in part dependent on what are now called 'cosmic frequencies', and that even the cells in our bodies are sensitive to a broad range of frequencies. Such findings suggest that it is only in the holographic domain of consciousness that such frequencies are sorted out and divided up into conventional perceptions. Regressions into the animal kingdom In the s, while conducting research into the beliefs of LSD as a psychotherapeutic tool, Dr.

Stanislav Grof had one female patient who suddenly became convinced she had assumed the identity of a female of a species of prehistoric reptile. During the course of her hallucination, she not only gave a richly detailed description of what it felt like to be encapsulated in such a form, but noted that the portion of the male of the species anatomy was a patch of colored scales on the side of its head.

What was startling to Grof was that although the woman had no prior knowledge about such things, a conversation with a zoologist later confirmed that in certain species of reptiles colored areas on the head do indeed play an important role as triggers of sexual arousal.

The woman's experience was not unique. During the course of his research, Grof encountered examples of patients regressing and identifying with virtually every species on the evolutionary tree research findings which helped influence the man-into-ape scene in the movie Altered States. Moreover, he found that such experiences frequently contained obscure zoological details which turned out to be accurate.

Regressions into the animal kingdom were not the only puzzling psychological phenomena Grof encountered. He also had patients who appeared to tap into some sort of collective or racial unconscious.

If the mind were like a holograph, it could be projecting these images. The Holographic Universe states that the holographic model of the mind and of reality can explain so much that materialist science cannot.

The West has provided advanced science, but education has led to the erosion of belief in non-material occurrences, and with it the untapped powers of the mind. Physicist David Bohm formulated a holographic model of the universe, and so along with Pribam, he is one of the two heroes of this book. For example, quanta subatomic particles manifest themselves as both waves and particles, but they only seem to manifest themselves as particles when they are being observed.

If this is true, this threatened the authority of scientific experimentation.

Bohm formulated the idea of non-local interconnectedness to explain the uncanny relationship that may exist between perceiver and perceived, as well as between different particles of the same system. Bohm later wrote a distillation of his ideas called Wholeness and the Implicate Order, which posited implicate and explicate orders.

For Bohm, the universe is a holomovement between the two orders, the explicate, which we call everyday reality, and the implicate order, wherein phenomena such as subatomic particles reside.

Although his theory has received repeated experimental support, predictably it has been resisted by physicists. Pribam and Bohm are the twin pillars of The Holographic Universe,which goes on to explore psychological and psychic phenomena, and to include a wide diversity of ideas that fit the holographic model.The holographic theory of the universe encompasses consciousness and reality as we know them, but can also explain such hitherto unexplained phenomena as telepathy, out-of-body experiences and even miraculous healing.

Another is that psychic functioning is often very difficult to pin down in the lab, and this has caused many scientists to conclude it therefore does not exist.

Book ratings by Goodreads. I am lucky. In the final parts of the book, it became almost anti-scientific and I can't justify in any possible way the results the book presumes to explain.
