Spiritual Counseling: Are We Living in the Matrix?
In Latin, the word holographus is derived from late Greek holographos. The root “holos” is defined as “whole or complete.” The holographic principle is a property of quantum physics and string theory which states that all the information in this three-dimensional universe that we call our reality is stored as a two-dimensional hologram.
One of the world’s most respected quantum physicists and former protege of Einstein, David Bohm, as well as the esteemed neuroscientist, Karl Pribram, believed that the universe is a hologram, a construct of sorts, created by the human mind. Sound familiar? If you think this sounds a lot like the storyline behind “The Matrix Trilogy,” then you would be right. No doubt, its creators, Larry and Andy Wachowski derived many of their concepts for their movie trilogy from the holographic theories of Bohm and Pribram.
Interestingly enough, this revolutionary new way of perceiving the universe explains not only many of the unsolved problems of physics, but also the unsolved supernatural mysteries such as telekinesis, telepathy, levitation, remote viewing, teleportation, near-death experiences (NDE’s), out of body experiences (OBE’s), kundalini awakenings, and other experiences of miraculous healings and cosmic (unity) consciousness.
Within a black hole, the rules and laws of our three-dimensional reality dissolve completely. I propose that the black hole singularity is, in fact, a portal to this two-dimensional reality which is much like a data bank where all of information of our holographic universe is stored. I also propose that what the ancient Hindu Vedic texts refer to as “the unmanifest,” or “source,” is also describing the black hole (whole) singularity.This 2D unmanifested reality can also be interpreted as a “reality potential” or where information is compacted and stored efficiently without any hint of form.
The holographic principle states that the sum total of everything that exists, either known or unknown, real or unreal, detectable or undetectable, is an illusory reality. Our brains act as some sort of quantum computer that constructs this reality based on frequencies from a two-dimensional realm. What we perceive through the five senses of touch, smell, taste, sight, and sound are simply electrical impulses interpreted by our quantum computer brain. The two-dimensional realm is a patterned primary reality that transcends time and space. The 2D realm preceded the 3D realm. We came from it — not the reverse. This is the true purpose of the black hole. In other words, the brain is a holographic construct translating data from a two-dimensional reality (via the black hole) into a much larger construct (holographic universe) that we define as our three-dimensional reality.
Bohm suggested that if we were to observe the universe without the lenses that outfit our telescopes, it would appear to us as a hologram. Pribram expanded this idea by stating that if we were to view our three-dimensional reality with out the lenses that outfit our eyes, it would also appear as a hologram. After looking closely at what these modern physicists have to say about the nature of our universe, it would seem that modern science is finally catching up with ancient wisdom.
