A holographic information
In the heavenly abode of the deity Indra, there was cast an infinite net reaching in all directions, and at each node point in the net there was a jewel, each reflecting the light of all the others - infinitely.
Should any jewel be touched, each of the infinite other jewels would instantly be affected, presaging physicist John Bell's theorem that everything is interconnected in this interdependent universe.
In particular, the Buddhist vision illustrates the concepts of dependent origination and interpenetration (all phenomena arise together and are intimately connected "in a mutually interdependent web of cause and effect" 104).
This essentially describes a holographic universe which organizes its emergent phenomena fractally - our holographic universe.
In The Tao of Physics, Capra explains the relevance of Indra's net to particle physics, stating that,
This is a principle of the hologram: that each part contains within it the information that codes for the whole.
In other words, all information fundamentally exists
nonlocally, infinitely reflected in all the facets of existence.
Then the second beam is allowed to collide with the reflected light of the first on photographic emulsion (film). When this happens they create an interference pattern that is recorded on the film - an image that looks nothing at all like the object photographed, and somewhat resembling the concentric rings that form when a handful of pebbles is tossed into a pond.
But as soon as another laser beam (or in some instances just a bright light source) is shined through the film, a three-dimensional image of the original object reappears. What's more, if the image is, for example, cut down the middle, or even divided into dozens of fragments, each section will contain not a particular section of the object, but the whole thing (albeit at a lower resolution).
The information is essentially distributed nonlocally throughout the holographic film. Sound familiar?
The hologram's ability to store and process massive
amounts of data is essentially due to the properties of light,
which, incidentally, the body's own DNA and cellular systems all use
to communicate throughout our physical organism. The photon itself
is considered to be localized information in its purest form.106
The number of pixels the hologram comprises is proportional only to the area of the region being described, not the volume 108 (which suggests that how far away the supposed "boundary" of our universe is, is unimportant in projecting our reality.)
The assertion that the multiverse is created by holographically organized information is increasingly being supported at all known levels of existence.
Recently, German scientists using equipment for detecting gravitational waves encountered a particular and unexpected noise, possibly the sound of the microscopic quantum convulsions of space-time, according to Craig Hogan, a physicist at Fermilab in Illinois.
Hogan had actually predicted the existence of this sound
and approached the Germans with his explanation, suspecting that it
may be due to the universe being a "giant cosmic hologram." 110
Further proving this applies to all scales (quantum in this case), researchers at IBM created a holographic projection in a carefully arranged assembly of several dozen cobalt atoms 20 nanometers in diameter.
When they inserted a magnetic cobalt atom into the ellipse
and bombarded it with electrons at one focal point of the ellipse, a
ghostly image of the atom appeared at the other focus of the
Indeed, David Bohm and Karl Pribram discovered the holographic properties of nature concurrently for themselves, working as they were in the physical domain and the realm of the human brain, respectively.
Adding to this, Laszlo and Currivan clarify that a system's information is more fundamental than the energy through which that system manifests and expresses itself. The probabilities describing a system are never random, but represent information, no matter the field of study - including quantum physics.114 Everything is fundamentally informational.
Anton Zeilinger states succinctly in Dance of the Photons that the
concepts of reality and information cannot be separated from each
The students analyzed the data using a statistical approach that allowed them to actually make predictions of many events within their frequency band.
They had become quite convinced that their theory actually "described the Reality," and statistically speaking, it did to some extent.
However, Chalko points out that by adopting a statistical approach the students completely missed millions of very real intelligent phone conversations, because they simply couldn't conceive that the data that,
The thought of
trying to decode their data never even occurred to them.116
The universe deals in intelligently encoded information that is perhaps intrinsically meaningful and thereby creates an ordered and meaningful Cosmos, but there are many ways to analyze and extract information and meaning from the one system (complementarity).
The phone calls taking place between people manifested within the EM band as seemingly random fluctuations, but in reality these fluctuations were the result of conscious choices being made each moment by the people holding the conversations that possessed and expressed meaning to them and their own particular methods of analysis.
The phone calls taking place looked random to the students because of the way they looked at them; they were not decoding them in a way that allowed them to extract or perceive the embedded meaning within privy to the speakers.
In a holographic and self-referencing ("holofractal") universe, if sentience and intelligence exists at one scale, it must exist on all of them.
It is interesting that Bohm's research into plasmas yielded the observation that electrons in a plasma configuration began to act as if they were part of a larger, interconnected whole, so much so that he frequently had the impression that the electron sea was "alive."
Mircea Sanduloviciu and colleagues have even created plasma
spheres that can grow, replicate and communicate, fulfilling most
traditional requirements for biological/living cells.117
Scaling up still further, in his fascinating 1919 study, Modern Psychical Phenomena, Hereward Carrington detailed rigorous experiments on a group of especially talented horses which were capable of carrying out complex mental arithmetic - beyond even the mathematical abilities of the scientific men testing them!
intelligence and communicative abilities with humans surpassed
anything previously expected of the equine species.
This is what psychical
research and parapsychology have overwhelmingly shown. (I cite many
experiments proving this point beyond all rational doubt in TGI 1 -
The Grand Illusion - Book 1)
The overall success rate was 54.5% as opposed to the 50% expected by chance, registering odds against chance of 202 octodecillion (that's 2 × 1059) to one. Even accounting for an estimated "file drawer" of six unreported "negative" studies, odds against chance remained absurdly high at 1046 to one.120
There is an observer effect on living systems, in
other words, and
we can, under certain circumstances, attribute it to a "visual ray."
For instance, in data from four hours before the September 11 terrorist attacks (which, according to the FBI and the notorious Dick Cheney, cannot be evidentially linked to the late CIA asset and former "employee" Osama Bin Laden, and certainly not to the bare minimum seven "hijackers" who turned up alive after the fact - oops!), they found an enormous level of coherence between the RNGs, indicating a hyperdimensional "forewarning" of a large impending event and collective subconscious focusing on it.
The period immediately surrounding the event shows a huge spike in coherence as humanity's collective mind was focused consciously on events as they unfolded.
The same results occurred
before the Asian tsunami of 2004 and during the funeral service of
Princess Diana (whose death occurred under highly suspicious
It is this energy that appears to be responsible for virtually all mind-matter interactions documented in the annals of psi research and quantum nonlocality in general.
In fact, it is not unreasonable to think of torsion as "consciousness in action."
that spins [as all atoms do, for instance] generates torsion waves,
and any organism or structure made of multiple atoms generates its
own aggregate torsion field. In fact, virtually every process
imaginable generates torsion waves which remain embedded as
informational fields in the vacuum/aether/fabric of space. A
tornado-like vortex, for instance, can be thought of as a static
torsion field. Some researchers use the terms "scalar" and "torsion"
interchangeably. See my book for much more information on this
fascinating area of research.)
might be evidence of backward-acting influence; all future decisions
may always influence the past through the temporally nonlocal process
of "morphic resonance." This can be adapted to fit the torsion
picture which reveals that, since past, present and future are
nested together in the now, there can really be no ordinary linear
causality to start with.
Thus, time has three dimensions, or operates three-dimensionally - it is not a one-dimensional river flowing "towards" an imagined future.
Co-opting Larson's ideas, we might speculate that presentiment research has perhaps indirectly shown that the astral aspect of the psyche is responding to a stimulus that, to it (as a torsion field), occupies the present, but which has yet to unfold linearly in our "explicate order" experience of reality.
This is a bizarre notion - does the past still exist right now in the infrared frequencies of the EM spectrum?
Relativistic physics says the past still exists in the space we occupy, as does occult doctrine, while it is known that informational torsion fields can linger virtually indefinitely, coupling with EM energies which then leave a detectable imprint of the past in space (Poponin and Gariaev's experiments on the DNA "phantom" [see Chapter 13 of TGI 1] speak directly to this concept).
Evidently, the infrared zone is
indeed a "magic window" through which we can view (to a limited
extent at least) the Akashic record.
Working in a cemetery with his PIP (polycontrast
interference photography) imaging system, which detects the light
that interacts with subtle energy fields (such as human auras), Oldfield
captured not only discarnate presences, but the presence of a
mausoleum and stone monument in the background that were no longer
standing, which belonged to an earlier century (probably some 200
years ago, around the time of the Napoleonic wars, according to an
employee at the cemetery).128
For me, this research lays waste to the notion of time as a one-dimensional linear flow in which each present moment fades into oblivion as it becomes the "past" - and it offers strong support for the notion that the "Akashic records" of the past can be perceived consciously and "read" by sensitives with the necessary faculties.
Effectively this research appears to prove Larson's theory that time is 3-dimensional - one dimension of time for each of space.
Moreover, such material also supports the holofractal universe concept, since we can see now that the ever-present "past" is always nested within the now, meaning that time is indeed "holographic" (whole in every part) and unfolds in a "fractal" self-referencing manner.
