LATEST DIALOGUES The Holographic Principle and the Shadows That Bind

holographic-universe

As is the human body, so is the cosmic body
As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind.
As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm.
As is the atom, so is the universe.
~ The Upanishads

In Plato’s “The Allegory of the Cave,” prisoners are chained inside a cave, able to look at only shadows cast on the wall by puppeteers standing in front of a fire behind them. For these prisoners, the shadows—not the real objects that cast those shadows—represent their entire reality.

It’s only when prisoners are released from the cave that they understand the true nature of reality—that what they called a “book” or a “man” were really just shadows of the real objects projected onto a wall.

Plato’s point is that even for us, outside the cave, we may not perceive reality accurately. For example, we may confuse the name or image of an object in our mind with the actual object itself.

Physicists, however, are starting to see that “shadows” like those experienced by Plato’s prisoners may be a much more accurate representation of reality than the philosopher realized, and could help tie together previously unconnected physics concepts like spacetime, gravity and quantum entanglement.

This realization stems from The Holographic Principle, a concept proposed in the 1990s by a group of theoretical physicists that included Gerardus ’t Hooft and Leonard Susskind. Their assertion was that all of the information contained within a region of space can be represented on the boundary of that region. So the contents of a three-dimensional space would be described on the two-dimensional boundary that forms the border of that space.

If this is difficult to imagine, picture a room whose walls are covered in mirrors. The complete information about the three-dimensional objects within the room is present in their two-dimensional reflections—“holograms” or “shadows”—in the mirrors. That means you can actually reconstruct those objects based upon their reflections.

The Holographic Principle also holds true for a five-dimensional spacetime, with its information represented in four dimensions on its own boundary. Seen this way, our world is a four-dimensional “shadow” on the wall of that five-dimensional “cave.” If you move away from the wall where our reality exists, you enter a fifth dimension.

But this concept has an even more important purpose in physics that just boggling the mind. Physicists have also found that the Holographic Principle could help tie together quantum physics with gravity. This connection involves quantum entanglement—the strange connection that certain particles continue to share even when separated by large distances.

Essentially, spacetime and gravity emerge from quantum entanglement, all through the power of holography. So, far from being delusions about reality, as in Plato’s cave, these “shadows” are actually threads that tie together some of the major facets of modern physics pointing to a deeper understating about the nature of reality .

    A woman posted a comment on my new Connected in the Deep website today that she believes we are all multidimensional beings, stuck seeing ourselves in 3D. I’m curious whether physicists see us stopping at a 4- or 5-dimensional universe in general…. aside from the multiverse concept…. anyone have research to point me toward?

      The word “stuck ” is a good word for playing in 3D. Makes so real the illusion of playing helpless and being the “victim however part of the game is to forget who we are for a 3D life cannot know all . The game is to discover and reawaken the authentic self. It is always a choice. What a tough one too. I can recall just moments during and after birth seeing a trailer film ( so to speak )of some of my life plans ahead of me. I freaked and made an attempt to hold my breath. the doctor slapped it out of me and I cried because I was alive. Since this woman posted we are multidimensional all selves are happening adjacent one another in different times and circumstances. One of the great things about knowing this is to use the holographic nature of Human consciousness to acquaint yourself with the rest of You. A good book I read once called “the Education of Over Soul Seven” by Jane Roberts chanel of Seth opened my world to the possibilities of being a conscious multidimensional being. Still working with this.

    Holographic Principle has been a major part of how I conduct transformative sessions with clients. I have found it not only advisable, it is essential to reawaken the authentic human imprint by way of an Initiation so that they can be an actual participant of the holographic experience. It is a natural fearless intelligent curiosity that inspires the capacity of a fully realized Human to be facilitated to access the inherent bond of Innocence /Wisdom. These two apparent opposites are the wings of Infinity that are both the vehicle and the navigator able to experience any combinations of time – space and dimension for contributing to the evolutionary integrity of Life as an “Author of the Living Library”. This title is my book in progress. So thrilled to see the body of my fellow humans uniting in Holographic investigations and nurtured by their contributions in the quantum field of One. I welcome sincere inquiries and conversation

      Hi Felicia. I am wondering. You mention curiosity. Have you experienced this pure curiosity as an existential aspect of consciousness (that which hooks into and unhooks from thoughts/feelings/sensations)? What is this unconditional curiosity in the method you are mastering?
      It is certainly a common motor behind both nonduality and science 🙂

      • October 07, 2014 at 6:29 pm, Felicia Mareels said:

        Hum Juicy question. Yes this curiosity is an existential experience where the limitations of 3D sensations fall away from the ability to respond all at once and without prejudice to the wholeness of an event, person or situation. This is is curiosity in a holographic perspective is exactly what changed my life right in a Transpersonal Empowerment psychologist’s session. He was attempting to Gestalt me through a traumatic experience with a pediphile. I suddenly could not take alternate sides in the discussion of who did what to whom for a quantum call to Unity had me stand between the two chairs and became both of us synchronously. I was not able at first to speak all that I was perceiving even though I was aware of my Psychologist. Something within encouraged me and I would call it compassion or empathy. I was curious why I felt this way and followed it. the sense of it was also holographic in that I garnered information in a nonlinear way and my whole body was alight with receptors that I never knew I had. I could see my victimizer in front of me he looked older than when I knew him at 6 years of age. It seemed perfectly natural to see through his body to his heart and observe his heart showing me how all the energy of hate I had felt for him had caused him to have a heart attack and to die earlier than he may have. Now in the background I could hear the psychologist asking what was going on. I was to some degree impatient with his interruptions however I just began to speak aloud my experience. after I realized how horrified i was at how i had killed him. Did I hear the psychologist say “forgiveness” ? I may have because I was suddenly saying” Oh please forgive me. what you did to me was only moments of distress. you have to know I did not realize that every time I thought of you I was sending you hate.” I didn’t even know I hated you. Can you forgive me please?” and I began to sob deeply more from the revelation of the deepest pain in all of this and in that the release of my imprisonment. Why was I released so easily? Because in mere fragments of time forgiveness washed over the two of us and released us both. My psychologist was wide-eyed and mouth open when I first saw him and he surprised me when he said, ” oh my goodness are you ever brave.” I knew then that he had never experienced this for himself or he would have known fear did not exist with me in this place of pure curiosity because there was no separation or conditions of any kind. I was both free and able to respond. (responsible). There was an solid and indestructible validation of Humanity as wonderful and fully realized. My first question was when i got out of doors was ” have the leaves always been this color green?” You asked about senses. Well my senses had been educated and I was inseparable from the color green and laughing because no one would know this but me.

          Wow! What a beautiful account and experience. Now I get the “Natural fearless intelligent curiosity.”
          It sounds as if consciousness was liberated from the story through the account (but one leap) and released the whole plane of sentient awareness through the heart in pure empathy. What an amazing account! Thank you!
          I also feel that this natural fearless intelligent curiosity is a quality of consciousness – and the Witness resource in trauma (often mistreated as dissociation),
          Yet this witnessing was also observed, I suspect in the account – through the eyes of the heart, containing also the witnessing and opening the compassion and empathy. Is that right?

            Very nice observations. Heart intelligence is so interesting since it is the first organ to appear in the assembly of the human form. the tongue is the next and then the brain. We give so much leverage to the brain, however the heart elevates all parts of the body including the brain to have a fully conscious experience. I have several mentors now who are well known however they never mention the intelligence of a fully aware human being as an inseparable authentically inspired and informed combination of Innocence/Wisdom. This research and practice is a stride in information for science, philosophy, psychology and spirituality. Innocence Wisdom disengages us from the attitude of a romantic tragedy where both these qualities of humanness set us up unavoidably in our 3D assignment saturated in suffering, loss, and deprivation. The leap you speak of is an initiation of the original human blueprint with both Innocence/Wisdom inherent in the design. The heart will break over and over again when it does not have full engagement and empowered eloquence to enrich the human experience as intrinsic to the Heart of One.

    Good post about Holographic, but if we are going to reality, reality is beyond any principle, if we go according to principles, we will find some new principle, alike we are made up of atoms, so we are itself Universe, As is the atom, so is the universe.

    • October 07, 2014 at 5:17 pm, Felicia Mareels said:

      I agree that reality is beyond any principle. In transformational work with clients who have been reawakened to their original blueprint the hologram is simply a platform and a vehicle to work through and with. It is an exciting opportunity and a permission to be part of the creative process. In this case we are working with traumatic situations that have been powerful enough to lock them into unconscious and sometimes conscious dysfunction that cannot be reasoned with. The holographic experience allows the person to be guided by their authentic intelligent curiosity and be able to travel through time, sometimes many generations or lifetimes and not always as an Earth being to the exact moment where the difficult illusion was seeded. Holographic exploration also allows that any question posed can reveal information way beyond the limitations of any likely or typical answer or common understanding. Holographic experiences are deep, thorough, expansive, exciting and rewarding as well as informative in the trinity of what completes a transformation. There is a wisdom that surrounds, encompasses and weaves it all together in equal measures of Love Peace and Joy. the person is self realized in a way that is supported by All There Is and it is an experience that is recognized as transpersonal. The question about finding a new principle is never distressful because the natural authentic Human ability and skill of being an experience of Innocence Wisdom is a fearless interest in possibilites. From this perspective all science is just a ponder, a look, a concept a choice and a decision to play in the information that was discovered . There is a real need to make things into absolutes. And we pretend to know it as a fact. This is just an experience of playing Creator and I quote the Christian Bible. “And God said . . .Let there be Light . . .And so it is.” Remember that humans were imagining and interpreting the impossible to know stuff. Why because Humans have a great need to know. Developing and establishing principles is just a way of exploring. In a real way freeing knowing into a principle delays real knowing No laws in reality could be absolute because we live in a ever evolving Living Library. The holographic perspective is a delicious perspective because it thankfully never becomes a principle.

    Nice article, but your timings off. Michael Talbot wrote “The Holographic Universe” in 1986 (great book by the way), Karl Pribram and David Bohm formulated the holographic principle in the 70′. I submitted a masters thesis on the holographic principle in 1982 entitled “The Holistic Revolution”.

        Perhaps I didn’t explain myself clearly. The subject is certainly important and I am pleased to see this article again bring the subject to the fore. I am simply calling attention to the fact that the statement “….The Holographic Principle, a concept proposed in the 1990s by a group of theoretical physicists that included Gerardus ’t Hooft and Leonard Susskind.” is not in line with the facts of history or scholarship. Karl Pribram, neuropsychologist of Stanford, Yale, and Georgetown, and David Bohm, quantum physicist of Birkbeck College, jointly proposed the Holographic Principle in the 1970s. Bohm’s seminal work, “Wholeness and the Implicate Order,” published in 1980 discussed the subject in depth. The two of them working together came up with now relatively famous statement, “The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”

        I just read the article you referenced above. I love it. I haven’t really though much about the holographic principle in an active way for quite a few years. You are stimulating me to dust off some of the cobwebs and pull out the brain matter once again. My study of the hologram led me to meditation. I was a full time meditation teacher for almost 10 years. Have lived in Ecuador for the past 8.

    We observe the universe and proclaim it is made of space and form, each of these is made up of information. But that only takes on meaning if we choose to analyze the space and form and express the analysis in language. I do believe we are experiencing this reality within a holographic construct, from our point of view it is a 3D virtual reality. Our nervous system, sensors and brain process the information very much the same way 3D glasses allow you to experience a 3D movie. As in a movie there is that which is being projected and that which is being observed, we are the observer of this process.

    If this is true there must be many programs at all levels, we don’t like to talk about or examine in depth the fact that we are programmable but it is a fact. There are natural rules and laws that govern our perceptions as a result they create our reality. If we accept this, we must then admit a program is leading us to discover all that we discover.

    Once you realize it is all an illusion, the rest is just describing the trick.

      I was just speaking to a teacher of Heart Math and she says she has difficulty with 3D because she knows that at one time she used to not be in conflict and in the exhausting dilemma of choice after choice after choice. My thought and conversation with her was that it was also a choice to be cranky about choices. The game or “program” of 3D is that conflict major part of it unless. . . Ta da. . . you choose to side-step that one and find peace first and see what choice comes up for you then. Most people’s nervous systems are overwhelmed by choice because “the program” or game attempts to confuse us with a barrage of them. Gosh, if we talk about being Programmable as though something else or someone else was responsible for it 3D is a huge spiral into the abyss of being abused and victimized By what . . .Freedom? And yes the fear of the unknown as a choice of freedom is another program 3D offers to anyone who may find a benefit in exploring it. Natural Rules and Laws are that no one has not planned to be in the game. Pure consciousness is the game for any players of any program to evolve through discovery. I realize you were using the word to lighten up the topic however at the core essence of it all there are no tricks. It’s all sincere investigation for untapped integral skills and abilities to develop through choices of particular game constructs and infinite choices within them. Every living Being the microcosm is playing the Big Game for the Macrocosm; contributors one and all not matter if we are conscious of it in 3 D not. No useless lives in bogus games. It all counts.

        Felicia,

        Our experiences have lead us to a different understanding of
        the reality we find ourselves in. You can only be exhausted by choice if
        you think you are the chooser. Tell your friend to stop choosing and
        she will see nothing will change, life will go on.

        If there is a purpose for us, it is not in our control and it is being observed from a very different point of view. The definition of purpose is “an anticipated outcome that is intended” for the sake of sanity let’s say there is a purpose. As to us as a species an anticipated outcome that is intended has to be planned and there must be a planner out side the group.

        According to us, we are the most advanced form, experiencing this
        dimension, we should first question that assumption. We base our opinion on the observations and the values of a reality we have created. Our reality is only what we are willing to believe and what we believe has been programmed into us since birth. The physical being is programmable, he is not the director of the play or the thinker of thoughts, he is not even the writer of his own story. He is like a marinate and he dances to the music of the universe. It is a great gift to be here.

        love always

          Hi Mit I had to ponder your comment for a time and so now I want to ask you how this relates to the holographic experience of being? If every aspect of the hologram is part of the One what does that say about the responsibility of choice or choosing. Why does the Programmer of all life have all these lives experiencing life at all if we in the individual experience of the One did not have the freewill to choose for ourselves in the specific circumstance and situation and aspect of the moment? Yes I think that each of us is like a cell in the body of One or a star in the Universe. Clearly each cell in the body must have the right to chose from its own wisdom and the body must rely on this or the body would be overwhelmed by the dominant complexity of control and even if the Planner makes the puppet dance to the music of the universe,this music is made up of many songs. Each person is like each planet for instance as recently recorded singing very unique melodies . Even the belt around Saturn has a number of songs it sings. What would you say to the idea of planning the holographic experience of an integral evolutionary journey where the True North Compass so to speak would be intrinsic in the design of all things . . .a built in purpose would grow from this in an individual’s life because keeping on purpose would be a practice of choosing from the integral aspect of self. ( like a ring true feeling) If this is the greater Plan you speak of and it is the Planner that is doing it all then why freedom? Why not just put keys in our backs and wind us up and let us go until we drop? What of the larger aspect of (I am going to call it Creator rather than Planner. . .the Creator’s curiosity of it’s creation? Could you imagine the thrill the Creator would experience from a wave of evolutionary enlightenment when a build up of chaos transforms- on mass and humans feel compassion or excitement or that freedom of struggle is lifted on purpose – with determination and commitment and vision.

          I feel I know a small version of this as a parent of adults. However if I had been able to plan everything there are so many painful experiences that would never have happened. On the other hand my children born free to Be have surprised and delighted me with the strides of confidence and abilities they have mastered with plenty of mistakes and struggle in the mix. Most of it I feel between the Creator and the Created (humans) is that they must master the surrender of their inner compass to their freedom to chose. It’s an alchemy like making love with a partner. We Be in Love with our integral human design that can really assist us to make choices that are empowered with the Creator potential. Choice is then not fragmented from the whole but a demonstration of synchronized harmonic intelligence and is power -driven by inspiration, imagination, compassion and passion and co-creation. . . a self realised gift of Being Present and inseparable from the One.

            Thank you for your response, I would like to
            begin by saying I don’t claim to know anything outside of my own experience and what I have observed. I write from and understanding I have been formulating for a number of years.

            Q- “Hi Mit I had to ponder your comment for a
            time and so now I want to ask you how this relates to the holographic experience of being?”

            A -Let’s say we both agree we are in fact
            experiencing a holographic construct which is producing our observable reality or virtual reality. By definition a holographic construct must be projected. As sensory beings we are the observer of those projections but the holographic construct does not produce the
            experience of Being. The hologram is BEING,
            projected from BEING.

            Q – “If every aspect of the hologram is part of the One what does that say about the responsibility of choice or choosing. Why does the Programmer of all life have all these lives experiencing life at all if we in the individual experience of the One did not have the freewill to choose for ourselves in the specific
            circumstance and situation and aspect of the moment?”

            A -The sensory being can not choose in the moment because he does not exist in the moment the sensory being is a projection, the
            choice is made by the creator of that being projected.

            Our sensory perception makes up the components, by which we imagine a physical self, but you are not the physical body, you are the observer of the senses. We come to this
            world in Spirit, through birth we manifest into a human being. Our spiritual connection which exists only in the NOW fades as we realize our senses. We must be isolated from Spirit to experience time, which is the canvass on which your story will be told.

            Q – If this is the greater Plan you speak of
            and it is the Planner that is doing it all then why freedom?

            A – As the child of consciousness we have a longing to return to source.

            Once one discovers the true nature of reality
            and the true nature of who we are, there is a freedom and a sense of loss. We spend many life times in this virtual reality the freedom comes when we realize we are no longer trapped by the illusion. The sense of loss comes from identities desperately clinging to time.

            But in the end, time means nothing to eternity.

            Q – Why not just put keys in our backs and
            wind us up and let us go until we drop?

            A – Look out at the world, replace the key with and electromagnetic operating system and you will see us running until we drop all over the
            place.

            Q – What of the larger aspect of (I am going
            to call it Creator rather than Planner. . .the Creator’s curiosity of it’s creation?

            A – I have no problem recognizing the
            existence of a creator, I believe we are guided to this path of self discovery because through this process the creator is trying to discover herself / himself / itself.

            Q – Could you imagine the thrill the Creator
            would experience from a wave of evolutionary enlightenment when a build up of chaos transforms- on mass and humans feel compassion or excitement or that freedom of struggle is lifted on purpose – with determination and commitment and vision?

            A – No.

            Love always

            Hi Mit, I do appreciate all the time and effort it took to reply with so well formed answers from your experience. I really want to discuss these complex ideas however where the energy of this share is coming from feels like Sophistry. I don’t know if that means anything to you and it may not if you didn’t study it. It is the art of debate for the pleasure of the debate itself. This may not be the whole of it however I feel as thought to change this from primarily an intellectual thread I would like to give you a living example of many of the concepts that are tending to be on side of aright and wrong perspective.

            I have been a transformationist for 25 years and into this trauma release empowerment work i do with clients I brought with me a good deal of dark and violent history that allowed me to feel compassion while not being frightened or judgemental by stories , behaviour, tragic choices etc. A bonus was that I was a writer since I could string a sentence and became an Auteur film maker in university. . meaning i learned to be creatively responsible for all aspects of the film and more hands on the less money you may have or the more control you wanted to maintain, which as you may see in a moment I came to appreciate later as having been a holographic experience.

            I just want to take apart the word holograph for a moment.

            Mit -Let’s say we both agree we are in fact experiencing a holographic construct which is producing our observable reality or virtual reality. By definition a holographic construct must be projected. As sensory beings we are the observer of those projections but the holographic construct does not produce the

            Felicia . . .To understand the meaning of the total word it began like this – holo – it was suggested I look to the word – safe- Once there I discovered something very pleasing _safe (holos means healthy and whole and secure from threat or harm. Gosh just got why they call it the Holy Spirit

            Hi Mit
            Yes yes I do know this conversation Not by this teacher but by others over the years , Very good. Science meets Spirituality is a good place to discuss the topic of Presence. And since I discovered a new depth to the word Holy I would say that presence is the safe and and unharmable constant of the infinite Source.
            Another teacher gave me a word to explore that made more sense of Presence and it is the word Presentment. Look it up in a good dictionary if you like and see what you get from this word.

            Hello,

            I prefer to word conversation over the word debate but I do
            understand the concept. In this conversation it will be important in many cases to clarify the definition of a word and the point of view from which the dialog is being projected.

            Example “safe” from one point of view it can be a place where one feels safe. A personal point of view associated with a feeling.

            From another it can be where things of great value are placed. It is a different feeling because you do not believe you are this thing of great value. You are outside the box it is a different point of view.

            The word presence has a similar problem in as much it can
            have different meanings for each individual. You speak of a sense of presence this is a feeling, it is related to the body/mind and space and time.

            When I speak of presence there is no location and there is no time, there is only space.

            Are the word presence and NOW synonymous in the context of
            this discussion ?

            Love always

            Safe as in the original word Holos is not as the Greeks created the word to mean as a feeling of safety but an absolute condition of non-harm. This would represent a non changing essence of the integral being. Doesn’t matter if anyone agrees with it or even for that matter if they ever use it to their own advantage or experience this condition. . .it is not changed by any one’s opinion or lack of knowing. This is an Isness of all life. The presence as you mentioned would need to be an awareness – a consciousness and yes it is an experience of the Now as the presence of “something” that for some of us, causes our emotions to peak with interest and curiosity when we explore our life in the moment. Safe or Holos allows us to stand in the moment and have a flashback and to be the author and editor of our past, Healing and transforming is the gifts of Holos or holy spirit at work with conscious contribution of a human unafraid to use time and dimensions as tools for transformation. Here is something that may be of interest to you .

            The word Holo in Greek also means “whole” which seems easier
            for me to except in the context we are discussing. We’ve started with the premise we are experiencing a reality within a holographic construct. We could step back and give ourselves a bit more room by agreeing we exist as energy, within an energy field. The nature of that field is less important to this discussion then the perception of how we relate to that energy. I believe the catalyst for this discussion
            was the idea of choice, are we the doer of things or are things just happening and we claim ownership after the fact.

            Is this a place where we can start ?

            I say the sensory being does not have the ability to choose the body mind human is a slave to the parts he plays, he is given a name and he enters the plug and play world of illusions. We don’t acknowledge that we are programmable, but if you examine our circumstance with an open mind you have to acknowledge that all structured
            society is a program created through ideas and concepts, there are rules and law and boundaries, there are role models, jobs and careers; there is competition, expectation and desire. This is the world of parts and pieces and the foundation of our physical
            reality. In this reality you can become one of the pieces. Being one of the pieces is comfortable, it is a controlled experience and one that most people choose. We call it normal; there are templates on how to become this piece or that piece. This or that is the illusion of choice, “I chose to be this piece, not that piece”. And of course this piece is better than that piece. Our entire existence is striving to be this or that, we have expectations of a future that does not exist and memories of a history that is not ours. We did not choose either.

            Love always
