Is the Universe a Giant Hologram?
The concept of the universe as a giant hologram containing both matter and consciousness as a single field is something that the mystics have been saying for eons. It may just answer the question, “What is reality?” Today everyone is familiar with holograms, three-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser.
The universe itself may be a giant hologram, quite literally a kind of image or construct created, at least in part, by our own human mind. In essence we, or should I say, our mind is the laser projecting our image of reality on the film of the universe. This remarkable new way of looking at the universe explains not only many of the unsolved puzzles of physics, but also mysterious occurrences as telepathy, out of body, and near death experiences. Even lucid dreams, religious and mystical experiences such as the feelings of cosmic unity and miraculous healing can be realized through this construct.
We desperately need new models of reality to fire up the imagination of what is possible, and to give us new visions of our place and purpose in the cosmos. It’s a wake up call to wonder, an adventure in new ideas, and the possibilities that by changing our point of view we can create a new reality for us and the world in which we live.
For a while now science has been converging with common sense. At the very lease, catching up with experience, confirming a widespread suspicion that things are far more connected than we were taught to believe. If you need to maintain your idea that science has proved that it’s all mechanical, and that there is no room in the universe for consciousness, soul and spirit, then we limit our potential as beings with the consciousness, soul, and spirit to create the reality we sense we should and could be living.
This holographic construct could be the lifeline that helps us to bridge the artificial gap or veil that has prevented us from living our full unlimited potential as human beings. This idea that the universe is a hologram and we are the light source creating the hologram image will help to bridge the artificial gap that has opened up between mind and matter, between us and the rest of the cosmos, and will allow us to create to our full potential as a loving member of the universal family. Finally becoming what we truly are.
