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.
Escaping the Matrix full length June 11 2011 original upload by aodscarecrow
In a recent Scientific American Article the topic of Non-locality was discussed at length in relation to special relativity. It is good to see that the subject of Non-locality is making headline news because the understanding of this will revolutionize our current scientific understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe. A few portions of the paper I would like to mention are as follows:
“And so the actual world is non-local. Period.”
“Only a very small minority of physicists… grasp that Bell’s proof and Aspect’s experiments meant the world itself had been discovered to be non-local”
“Moreover, his theory introduces a new variety of non-locality into the laws of nature- a nonlocality not merely in space but in time!”
“Quantum-mechanical wave functions cannot be represented mathematically in anything smaller than a mind-bogglingly high-dimensional space”
“…then we need to take seriously the idea that the world’s history plays itself out not in the three-dimensional space of our everyday experience or the four-dimensional spacetime of special relativity but rather this gigantic and unfamiliar configuration space, out of which the illusion of three-dimensionality somehow emerges. Our three-dimensional idea of locality would need to be understood as emergent as well. The non-locality of quantum physics might be our window into this deeper level of reality.”
You may first ask, what exactly is non-locality? Well this could probably best understood by its opposite; the principle of locality, which states objects are influenced only directly by its immediate surroundings. Basically you can only influence an object by direct physical contact or chain of contacts; ex. Touching an object or using a ‘local’ force field of some kind. In non-locality objects can influence each other across vast distance of space with no in between forces or chain of events. This has been scientifically verified to happen and is well known in the scientific community as quantum entanglement. Electrons have the ability to influence each other over millions of miles faster than the speed of light completely defying our Newtonian mechanistic perceptions of the universe and world we live in. Our day to day experiences are thus not an accurate reflection of the deeper workings and mechanics of the universe, which seem to defy logic.
What does this all mean? It means that if objects can be connected non-locally then the entire universe may be a gigantic non-local gestalt. That means distance as we perceive it, is merely an illusion and the universe exist fundamentally nowhere and everywhere simultaneously. The universe itself is not composed of space because space implies distance and distance is an illusion as are all the dimensions we live in by sheer virtue of the property of non-locality. In this regard the universe can only exist as one thing a blob of sorts, that escapes all quantifiable forms of measurements.
Ultimately this means that all of physical reality as we perceive it is an illusion and exists only in an illusionary dream like state. Instead of reality being viewed as Newtonian and mechanistic, under the context of non-locality it is probably best understood of as a dream for it has the same properties.
When you dream the experiences are very real. You can taste, touch sense and feel. You can walk about and travel as well as interact with objects and the dream environment in meaningful ways. But where exactly does this dream reality of yours exist? Does it have a tangible foundation other than being purely an inward mental projection? Your dream reality exists as a virtual reality, likewise our universe has been discovered to also be entirely virtual because of quantum entanglement. If someone were to ask you where the places you visited in your dream exist, you would have to say they are mental holographic like constructions only existing in your mind. They don’t exists in any one specific place and the buildings and places you may visit in your dreams are not made up of any tangible stuff. Likewise our universe exists in exactly the same way except it is one massive dream in which many people take part in. If we could visit each other in our dreams, this would be an accurate representation of our current physical reality.
If our universe truly is non-local it only makes sense to treat it like a dream. Except this dream is one in which many people consciously co-create unlike your personal dreams which remain almost exclusive to your subconscious creations. Both conscious physical reality and our dream realities are both projections. But projections of what? Seemingly consciousness is the only logical answer as it is the only thing we know of that has the ability to continuously create subjective projections which it can then itself experience. It is quite easy for the mind to create a projected landscape, and then project itself into that landscape and view the landscape as it were separate from that landscape even though it created it. This begs the question if you construct landscapes in your mind, are these projections separate from you or ARE they literally you…are they inside you, inside your mind perhaps? And where does your mind exist, inside your brain? Can you locate with spatial coordinates and measurements the precise length of the roads in your mental projections? Of course not. We take it for granted that our mind has the ability to make mental projections uncharacteristic of our daily perceived reality. But we also take for granted that somehow our physical reality is not a mental construct and that it has a tangibility that exists independently from mental projections. But what if all of physical reality where a massive mental projection. What if mental projections was all there ever was? For example you can create a hilly landscape in your mind, and then project yourself into that landscape as if you were standing on the road winding through the hills as you look around.
In a non-local universe it also makes sense to understand it as pure unabridged consciousness. For how else could the universe create the magnificent illusion we call reality?
What this seems to imply is that the entire universe is a mental construct and exists purely in a psychological gestalt, for within a psychological gestalt, space, dimensions and time are all constructs. It is like the places we venture to in our dreams, they have no physical tangible reality but yet they are valid places our consciousness can go and experience its creations. Likewise the entire universe seems to exist in a matrix, where time and space are illusions and we are all parts of the illusion that have a part in creating its reality. To try and make sense of a non-local universe it only seems feasible and logical that consciousness exists within and IS a multidimensional matrix of sorts which acts as the prime mover creating realities in a collective endeavor such that the experience of life as we know it can be attained. It could be said that consciousness is all there is, and therefore fundamentally no such thing as inanimate matter even exists. All matter is conscious, sentient and self aware… for it creates itself.
All of our current physical reality can be broken down into molecules. Molecules can be further broken down into individual atoms, and those broken down into protons neutrons and electrons. Those can be broken down even further into exotic particles such as quarks, muons and leptons. Beyond that the individual particles can theoretically be broken into very tiny vibrating strings. Now what are the strings composed of? Well energy. And what is energy composed of? …Energy. All of reality and material existence breaks down fundamentally into energy. And while energy itself can be quantified and measured to a degree it’s tangibility still remains an abstract concept for it exists in a multidimensional super space of sorts. It is within this abstractness that the true non-local nature of reality lies.
