Reality is an Illusion, Life a Hologram

Latest scientific studies show that the Universe is a giant hologram.

This idea unites religion, philosophy and science. Even in the most ancient teachings, in eastern religions and philosophies is spoken of the world being an illusion. And now science confirms it.

It turns out that movies like “The Matrix” are not just fiction.

The first who came up with this idea are two of the world’s foremost thinkers: David Bohm – quantum physicist, student of Einstein, and Karl Pribram – a neurophysiologists and author of the classic neuropsychological guide – Languages of the brain.

Interestingly, Bohm and Pribram reach their conclusions independently from each other, although working in two absolute different fields.

– the ability of people with only one ear, to determine the direction from which sound comes
– our ability to recognize the  face of someone we haven’t seen for many years
– the ability of the consciousness to affect the world
– predicting the future
– synchronicity
– the mystical sense of oneness with the Universe

A Complete Revolutionary View of the World.

The studies of Bohm and Pribram led to a big change the way we perceive the world:

Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately projections from another dimension, from a deeper order of existence that is beyond space and time. The brain is a hologram, shrouded in a holographic universe. What is “outside of us” is a vast ocean of waves and frequencies, and reality seems only real to us because our brain are able to perceive this holographic mist and turn it into stones, trees and other familiar objects that make up our world.

According to Pribram, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything outside of us.

It simply means the world has two different aspects of its reality.

When passing through the filter of the lens of our brain, it manifests itself in the way we know it. But if we’re able to get rid of our ophthalmic lenses, we’ll experience it as one interference picture.

The questions that started bothering Pribram:

If the picture of reality in our brains isn’t a picture, but a hologram, of what is she hologram of? Which is the true reality? A seemingly objective world, experienced by the observer or a mist of interference structures, recorded by the brain? Which of these aspects is real and which is an illusion? Both are real to me – says Pribram – or if you want me to pronounce it, none of them is real.

It’s really hard to grasp it. What creates difficulties is the fact that we don’t look at the hologram. We’re part of it!

Three-Dimensionality Is not the Only Remarkable Aspect of Holograms.

Another specific quality is that information of the whole is contained in any of its parts.

If a holographic image, containing the image of an apple, is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will contain the overall image of the apple! Even if the halves are sliced again and again, from each little piece of the film can be restored the image of a whole apple (although the image will become less clear with the reduction of the parts). Unlike normal photographs, every small fragment of the holographic film contains all the information recorded on the whole film.

Since the brain is a hologram, the memories aren’t contained in one place, but in every one of its parts. The studies of the great neuropsychologist – Karl Lashley proves this.

He carried out an experiment, training rats to perform various tasks while passing through a maze. Afterwards, surgically removes different parts of their brains and once again puts them in the labyrinth.

To his surprise, he discovered that no matter which part of the brains is removed, he cannot destroy their memories.

Memory isn’t the only holographic thing the brain can process.

Vision is Also Holographic.

Another discovery of Lashley is visual centers of the brain are amazingly resistant to surgical excision. He found that even after removing 90% of the visual cortex of the rat, the animal could still perform tasks, requiring complex visual skills. Similarly conducted by Pribram research shows that 98% of the optic nerves of a cat can be cut without seriously undermining its ability to perform complex visual tasks.

The Hologram Has a Fantastic Capacity for Storing Information.

Holography also explains how our brains can store so much information on such a small space. The brilliant physicist and mathematician John Von Neumann calculates that in the course of an average human life, the brain stores information in the range of 2,8 x U20 (280 000 000 000 000 000 000) bits.

This is a staggering amount of information and brain researchers have long been trying to find a mechanism to explain such tremendous opportunities.

The Hologram Contains a Hidden Order.

Similarly in the Universe there is a hidden order and all things are in oneness.

These ideas are proven in various studies of Bohm and other physicists. In his work, Bohm encountered a striking example of quantum interconnectedness while studying the plasma.

To his amazement, he found that when the electrons are in plasma, they cease to behave like individual particles and begin to act as part of a larger and interconnected whole. After long time researching, Bohm came up with the idea that maybe the things we perceive as messy, are not.

Under the hologram remains a hidden and deeper order of existence, a vast and primary level of reality, which creates all the objects and phenomena in our physical world, roughly the same way as a holographic plate generates a hologram.

In addition, Bohm reached to the staggering ideas that the Universe isn’t really composed of individual parts and cannot be divided into separate fragments or into animate and inanimate.

Everything in the universe is actually One!

Let us reflect for a moment on this. Look at your hand. Now look at the light coming from the lamp over you. Look at the dog lounging in your feet. You’re not just made of the same stuff. You’re the same thing. One thing. One, unbroken. One great thing, expanding its countless hands and growths in all visible objects, atoms, restless oceans and twinkling stars in the cosmos.

Both Bohm and Pribram note that experiences described by mystics throughout the centuries – a sense of cosmic oneness with the Universe, a sense of oneness with everything alive and so on.. – are too similar to the descriptions of the implicate order.

They suggest that perhaps the mystics are able somehow to peek beyond the usually manifested reality and see its deeper, more holographic qualities.

The psychiatrist Montague Ullman believes that patients with psychosis are also able to experience some aspects of the holographic level of reality. But since they cannot arrange their experiences, peeks like these only resemble those described by mystics.

The idea of a Holographic Universe explains the influence of the consciousness on the world, as well as dreams and lucid dreams.

Synchronicity could also be explained by the idea of a hologram. Synchronicity is actually a “crack within the fabric of reality.”
