THE COSMIC HOLOGRAM
For this month’s blog [The Hundredth Edition] I wanted to look at something deep and meaningful to celebrate. Hence the Cosmic Hologram was born.
The blog takes a brief [and layman’s] look at the latest thinking on the structure of the universe and mankind’s place within it. I am no expert on matters relating to quantum physics and its allied fields, but the topic is very close to my heart. For the universe to make sense our position in the scheme of things is critical to understanding our universal surrounds.
What is the Cosmic Holographic Universe?
The holographic universe, a concept first suggested in the 1990s, is one where all the information that makes up our perceived dimensional ‘reality’ (including time) is contained in a 2D surface on its boundaries.
Scientists have been working for decades to combine Einstein’s theory of gravity and quantum theory. Many believe the theory of a holographic universe has the potential to reconcile both. If this turns out to be the case [and even if it is only a part of the truth] our view of existence and consciousness will change drastically. Basically, it means that we are part of something huge, and it does not stop with this life or planet!
Professor Kostas Skenderis of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton explains: “Imagine that everything you see, feel and hear in three dimensions (and your perception of time) in fact emanates from a flat two-dimensional field. The idea is similar to that of ordinary holograms where a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card. However, this time, the entire universe is encoded!”
And there’s more:
Here’s another quote:
‘There is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it – from snowflakes to maple trees to falling stars and spinning electrons – are only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality literally beyond both space and time.’ This is the revolutionary idea behind the holographic theory of the universe, pioneered by two eminent thinkers: physicist David Bohm, a former protege of Albert Einstein, and quantum physicist Karl Pribram.
The holographic theory of the universe involves consciousness and reality as we know them but can also explain such hitherto unexplained phenomena as telepathy, out-of-body experiences and even miraculous healing. In his book, Michael Talbot reveals the extraordinary depth and power of the holographic theory of the universe, illustrating how it makes sense of the entire range of experiences within our universe – and in other universes beyond our own:
For me, this explanation of our total surroundings can explain many things, including so-called supernatural events, the afterlife and our religious inclinations, and even why we are here at all.
In the future, I believe, we will come full cycle and recognize that spirituality and science are as one.
The video listed below, an interview of Dr Jude Currivan, is so emotionally and intellectually stimulating that I recommend everyone to view it. You will need an hour or so to digest it.
The supposition that we are microcosms of cosmic intelligence makes sense to me.
And to state some quotes on Dr Currivan’s book :
Dr Currivan’s brilliant synthesis incorporating consciousness as a fundamental element comprising the fabric of the Universe provides a bold and hopeful vision for the future of human civilization—and how each of us can fully participate as co-creators of the world to come.
Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, Stem cell biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution (with Steve Bhaerman) and The Honeymoon Effect
This brilliant book will, I believe, serve as a major catalyst to the most profound evolutionary moment facing humanity today – the recognition of who we truly are…microcosms of cosmic intelligence co-creating, evolving and transforming on multi-dimensional levels of existence.

Coober Pedy – Opal capital of the world
Introduction Coming down to earth, this month’s blog takes a look at the fascinating town of Coober Pedy in South Australia. This town, located in northern South Australia, is some 846 km or 526 miles north of Adelaide on the Stuart Highway. The town is often referred to as the “opal capital of the world”…Continue Reading
