I'm reading a book, Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. made many references to the work of David Bohm and Karl Pribram in this book, one
of which was according to Bohm, the apparent faster-than-light connection between subatomic particles is really telling us that there is a deeper
level of reality we are not privy to, a more complex dimension beyond our own that is analogous to the aquarium. And, he adds, we view objects such as
subatomic particles as separate from one another because we are seeing only a portion of their reality.
Such particles are not separate "parts", but facets of a deeper and more underlying unity that is ultimately as holographic and indivisible as the
previously mentioned rose. And since everything in physical reality is comprised of these "eidolons", the universe is itself a projection, a
In addition to its phantomlike nature, such a universe would possess other rather startling features. 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.
Everything interpenetrates everything, and although human nature may seek to categorize and pigeonhole and subdivide, the various phenomena of the
universe, all apportionments are of necessity artificial and all of nature is ultimately a seamless web.
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 superhologram in which the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. This suggests that given the
proper tools it might even be possible to someday reach into the superholographic level of reality and pluck out scenes from the long-forgotten past.
What else the superhologram contains is an open-ended question. Allowing, for the sake of argument, that the superhologram is the matrix that has
given birth to everything in our universe, at the very least it contains every subatomic particle that has been or will be -- every configuration of
matter and energy that is possible, from snowflakes to quasars, from bluü whales to gamma rays. It must be seen as a sort of cosmic storehouse of
"All That Is."
This book is going to take me awhile to absorb, for me it's pretty heady stuff and even though it's a older book and I'm sure more updated theories
are now out there, it's still a interesting read.
