Living In A Hologram: Our Holographic Reality

We grow up thinking and believing that the world and reality in which we exist in is something tangible and physical and is just as is perceived. However, not only does this thought-process become disillusioned with various difficult-to-explain phenomena, but perceptions becomes realized as completely subjective that do not reflect an objective reality, if such a reality even exists. With the significant advances in the knowledge and information attained by the human race in its most recent history, radical shifts in how reality is perceived are being formulated.

Where the universe was once seen as an empty space with bits of matter scattered about is now being seen as a holographic projection stemming from some primary reality unseen to our biological and technological instruments.

The evidence for a holographic reality is becoming quite plentiful; too much to be disregarded. What gives it more credence is that those who have experienced higher states of consciousness and echelons of reality via meditation, astral projection, or entheogens have been proclaiming very holographic-esque musings and aphorisms.

To give just one example, there was the research done in 1982 in the University of Paris which 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 did not matter whether they were 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seemed to know what the other was doing. The great physicist David Bohm believed that these findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.

Within a hologram, the whole is within the part. No matter how many times you divide the whole, the part will always contain it’s totality. Just as higher consciousness realizations show that each part, as seemingly small or separate it is from total reality and the Source of reality itself, contains that very Source and v.v. The deduction from the holographic experiments conclude that autonomy and separateness are an illusion and that all is one.

Oneness is a concept found in seemingly every major belief system ever manifested within the realm of human consciousness, so it only emboldens recent discoveries pertaining to our manifested reality. If this indeed is the case, (and enough evidence shows that it is) then the universe is itself a projection, a hologram. If the apparent separateness of subatomic particles is illusory, it means that at a deeper level of reality all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected. The electrons in a carbon atom in the human brain are connected to the subatomic particles that comprise every salmon that swims, every heart that beats, and every star that shimmers in the sky. Oneness prevails.

In a holographic universe, even time and space could no longer be viewed as fundamentals. Because concepts such as location break down in a universe in which nothing is truly separate from anything else, time and three-dimensional space, like the images of the fish on the TV monitors, would also have to be viewed as projections of this deeper order. At its deeper level reality is a sort of super-hologram in which the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously.

The three-dimensional universe we live in is the hologram created out of a primary reality that is outside space and time so it is a copy of something “real” so it would make sense in such a case that our real self is in another reality. Our consciousness is the real us. Consciousness is everything and therefore it is nothing, since all that is, is consciousness.

To further build the case for a holographic reality, consider the following:

  • A holographic universe explains nearly all paranormal and mystical experiences.
  • Near Death Experiences can be explained by a holographic universe, in that death is a shifting of a person’s consciousness from one level of the hologram of reality to another.
  • Current neurophysiological models of the brain are inadequate and only a holographic model can explain such things as archetypal experiences, encounters with the collective unconscious, and other unusual phenomena experienced during altered states of consciousness.
  • A holographic model for the universe explains lucid dreams, in which such dreams are visits to parallel realities.
  • Synchronicity can be explained by the holographic model. Our thought processes are much more intimately connected to the physical world than has been previously thought. Also note that synchronicity tends to peak just prior to a new realization or insight.
  • Telepathy, precognition, mystical feelings of oneness with the universe, and even psychokinesis can be explained through the holographic model.
  • Holography can explain how our brains can store so many memories in so little space (our brains can store 280,000,000,000,000,000,000 bits of information).
  • Holography can also explain how we are able to recall and forget, how we are able to have associative memory, how we have the ability to recognize familiar things, how we have the ability for the transference of new skills, how we have the ability to construct a world “out there”, how we are able to have “phantom limb” sensations, and how we are able to have photographic memory.
  • The brain itself, would therefore be a holographic projection created out of a primary reality outside of space and time.

All relative realities are created by consciousness existing in relation to itself. We are that consciousness. We are that consciousness existing in relation to itself and interacting with itself.” There is nothing else. None of the things we perceive as separate have an independent existence, as all are in actuality relational extensions of the underlying unity of consciousness. Physical reality is a product of consciousness.

Consciousness is not a product of physical reality. Physical reality does not interact with itself in some unknown fashion to cause consciousness to come into existence. Consciousness in the process of repeated and progressive self-relation becomes the awareness of experience, and thus creates physical reality.

There are realizations concerning the nature of the universe being a holographic projection, through the experience of enlightenment. Once enlightenment is experienced, one can understand exactly how the holographic universe operates and is indeed, very real. There comes an understanding that we are multidimensional beings that exist simultaneously in many levels of quantum reality.

There is no reason to get annoyed, angry, stressed, etc over the things that happen in one’s physical reality, which is the lowest dimension of our awareness, because it is all trivial in the grand scheme of things. Focusing on the specifics of reality may divert one’s self from discovering and realizing the reason he or she exists right now. This is why one of the steps to becoming enlightened is to replace fear and anger with wonder and curiosity.

Have you experienced a shift in perception concerning reality yet? At the very least, hopefully you are able to now expand your mind to realms previously unvisited. Reality is a mysterious and exciting place. Let’s all be explorers of this enchanting life experience.

    The one thing that does not get touched upon is the fact that all religions state this. Unfortunately people get caught up in the Metaphors and can’t see the truth. Once this happens you have religious zealots that miss the true meaning and wind up becoming Zionists, Muslim Fanatics, or Christian Fundamentalists all which took their scriptures “literally” and wound up creating hell on earth.

    Another note, God is the primary observer/conciousness whereas we are the secondaries. He is the Grand creator whereas we are the subcreators. The bright light we see when we pass from this world is merely a melting away of the 3 dimensional illusion on to the next which the Primary observer/God has waiting for us. Once we remove the shackles of this limited capacity world our creative prowess will be unleashed in the next.

    I’m excited about the next world God has waiting for me. What fantasma/higher illusion awaits remains to be seen (no pun intended). I can’t wait for my creativity to be unhinged and be able to really create in the next playground God has waiting for me. This low vibrational ego driven death cult we call present reality is no home for me. Iv’e given up eating meat entirely. I no longer have ambition towards “making it” in this world. Give me the basics to survive and I’m the happiest person in the world.

    After reading the works of Nisargadatta Maharaj, all this sounds very familiar – nondual mysticism dressed in scientific language. I’m happy to see the two dovetail!

  • Vivek narain

    Matter is mostly space.reality is mostly subjective because people are mostly engrossed in themselves and don’t notice the objective sand and air and sea,those who grieve on a death will in no time be grieved themselves,death comes to all,death seems to be the most objective reality but infact it is the most subjective experience.

  • Yes everything is Energy but it must be understood exactly what all energies are, time, mass, space, plasma, light, life, thought, every known or unknown form of energy ever conceived, they are all information, grains of information that interact, transmute, expand, constrict, but always build upon themselves, expanding out in all realities. These energies all follow simple underlying constraints, firstly they are all based on pure dichotomies, and the very nature of dichotomies are the realities that always lie in-between the two extremes/opposites, secondly energy is in a state of evolution, its constitution needs to ultimately transubstantiate into ever more complex forms of information, thirdly all knowledge is connected, a single ocean of unity. When understood it becomes clear, we exist in an illusion of the perception of the real, generated from the manifest , that always remains hidden to our perception. Yes it Holographic!!!!

  • the paradox concerning the nature of objective validity is by design and degree instinctual

    curiously the earth suffers the presence of a “JEWISH” so-called State where there are no Israelites only “proselytes”

    at one time not long ago gay meant happy and Africans lived in Africa

    not in caged cubicles in “America”

      as Vananda Shiva said: “you cannot insert a gene from a bacteria into a seed and call it life. you havent created life instead you have only polluted it.”
      the process of ‘mixture’ has already begun -.- and its a nuisance to go and try to call life on earth something different than -earthling-.

    This has nothing to do with holograms. The brain can access the words in your memory because reading out the words (whose first and last letters are correct or visually similar to correct)provide sufficient connections to the patterns of those words in your memory. The letters at the beginning and ends of the words are mostly consonents and adding incorrect vowels in between doesn’t change the pattern enough to cause a connection to the wrong word.

    The Hologram is Latent, not perceived, because Reality is operating on a computer model, with Materialization being a program. This is the basis of Good and Evil, Hologram and Control. All mythology details how Reality became a Dominion construct wherein Everything is designed to be doomed. Hence the dominance of Dark Energy and the future disintegration effected by accelerating expansion. Alternately, the Oneness paradigm transcends the Neediness that makes Dominion a cradle to grave mastery of consciousness. Thus it is Soul’s Conscience that is the basis of Inspiration such that one can see through delusion and access the enlightened perspective that is fulfilled by the Hologram’s hyperspace, omnipresent Resource. Thereby, one is without need, being in a state of Optimization. That status, not exploitation, is the true destiny of ensoulled humans. Dominion is fueled by Id, ambition for empowerment; whereas Fulfillment is an optimization based on sufficiency, recognizing that peace and harmony are the true expressions of Good/God.

    The entire universe and all of human history, indeed, earth’s, is one long dream of God. Woe to the evil and clueless among us when He finally wakes up.

    • Luke Truthwalker

      !!! I love it. Does that thought have any history?

  • Also, note that all of what we perceive as solid matter is 99.99999% empty space. But, that empty space is actually the quantum field that powers the atoms, connects each to all others, contains most of the energy in the universe and orchestrates reality.

    Yeah, the rub.

      Can you please expand on what you mean?

  • keldoone

    All of this matters and at the very same time none of it matters. Largely because there is so much to know and nothing at the same time also. It is an incredible conundrum and easy. It is all in the variables. There are no constants except what we “need” as constants so that our equations work. The speed of light is ~5,000 miles per second except when it isn’t. Gravity always is except when it isn’t… people do not survive cancer without medical intervention except when they do. There is more than a “ghost in the machine” there are the constant variables that makes life exciting and scarey… depending on how it is perceived. Explain to me how it works that a multible personality can have one health as “joe” while this same person as “fred” has diabetes and a third personality “mack” has cancer and “bill” has incredible allergic reactions to a variety of things. Yet when “joe” is here the diabetes, cancer and allergens do not exist….etc.
    Where is that except in hologram. And time… wow!, time. What a concept. Time is right on the clock,,, spot on, except when it isn’t. Explain these and how they function…? And please do remind me… how does one walk on red hot coals barefoot and not burn ones feet… not blister, but burn??? I did this without a singe and it absolutely blew my mind into an expansion that I still ponder 15 years later. We are so boastfull… we are “civilized” and “scientific”… Oh, yes, remind me what does the uiverse weight and which universe are we talking about? What total absurdity. What the universe weighs… as if one could take a scale out into the very center of the universe (as if we knew where the center is of something we cannot isolate) and set the scale up and weigh us.
    Forgive me… that is laughable. I recall back in the very late 1980’s there was an article about there having been discovered a new part of the universe that was so big it was being called the wall! I loved it…. because all of a sudden everything we thought we knew had to be reset…. when the irony is, that we really don’t know much. As a matter of fact… we know so very little that our boasting of what is said to be known is embarrassing to anyone awake.
    Coffee anyone?

    Nice summary. While I’m not up on the latest on this, the book The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbott is a great and easy read that explains this well, and also provides remarkable anecdotal evidence – timeless and well worth a read.

    • Guest

      Yes, a great book.

  • “Perceptions becomes realized as completely subjective that do not reflect an objective reality”

    Yes and No ! Of course perceptions are by definition subjective. They are created by our mind and not the actual thing or process they represent but they do not reflect an objective reality ? We must agree to disagree.

    I will confess I feel frustration sometimes by the way people take a few quotes here or there and a little knowledge of quantum mechanics putting 2 and 2 together and making infinity ! Our consciousness IS a reflection of an objective reality. Just because it doesn’t reflect it perfectly doesn’t mean the reality doesn’t exist.
    The sand on the beach, the ocean waves, the air we breath. These are all objective reality in the sense that they exist outside our consciousness in and of themselves and would continue to exist whether we use our senses to perceive them or not. How we perceive them in our minds is of course subjective because we are, whether we like it or not – on the inside looking out. Our eyes and ears are not for nothing ! We use them to subjectively recreate our perception of that reality and since we are all more or less able to go swimming in the sea, feel the sand between our toes and take deep breaths of air.. the consistency in the way we describe these things is clear evidence of that reality.

    We have all heard the zen like question about the sound in the forest. If a tree falls and there is no one in the forest is there a sound ? The answer is no but that doesn’t mean there is no reality and that we conjure all this in our minds. The full answer is that there are sound waves. ie: The vibration of air molecules. They are in themselves not the sound. If there were someone there those vibrating air molecules would vibrate the eardrums of the person and they would perceive sound and that perception would be a reflection of the wave caused by the falling tree.

    So our perception of the objective reality around is just that: A perception and the reality may be in the form of waves and particles but the form that those waves and particles take exist independently of us and maintain such a consistency that our perceptions reflect their arrangement in the best way possible.

    Niels Bohr helped in developing Quantum Physics. If particles made up matter,then no matter would exit in a vacuum. In a vacuum,a Geiger counter or similar instrument wouldn’t register,but they do. So matter cannot be made of particles. A Particle ,as used in the Quantum ,are not little ball-like atoms-instead they are dependent on the observer. One may look into the cold vacuum and observe a cold vacuum, however, if he is in motion, he sees a warm gas of particles.In addition, you may observe a trace line of say-Bubbles but Particles don’t move-what you see as tracks are considered to be “events”. Particles can also become entangled. But nowhere, in current research is the holographic that you speak so highly of. So stop selling. Bohr said: “Everything we call real is made or things that cannot be regarded as real.” Research continues.

      “In a vacuum,a Geiger counter or similar instrument wouldn’t register,but they do. So matter cannot be made of particles”

      Not so – the vacuum you refer to is in fact a ‘quantum foam’ or sea, out of which particles appear and disappear constantly.

      “But nowhere, in current research is the holographic that you speak so highly of.”

      You might have a look at research on microwave background radiation.
