Author Talbot writes that ". . . there is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it. . . are also only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time." Hence, the title of his book. Beginning with the work of physicist David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, both of whom independently arrived at holographic theories or models of the universe, Talbot explains in clear terms the theory and physics of holography and its application, both in science and in explanation of the paranormal and psychic. His theory of reality accommodates this latest thinking in physics as well as many unresolved mind-body questions. This well-written and fascinating study is recommended for science collections.

As for the book: It presents a unique concept of a ‘holographic’ universe; one that is hard to believe but, given the wide-ranging ‘non-scientific’ evidence, just as hard not to believe. The reason for this incongruity, I’m sure, is that although a holographic view of the universe seems to make sense and explains much that pure science can’t explain; a holographic universe simply can’t be visualized nor even satisfactorily expressed in mere words. True, it is based in limited-part on physical properties (particularly those of the human brain), but it relies almost entirely on psychic and spiritual (or religious) phenomena and a massive amount of anecdotal evidence. Perhaps, as someone noted somewhere in this book, the holographic universe is the point at which the physical world intersects with the psychic world. But, if so, it’s still a bit difficult to envision. One thing for sure, however, the Holographic Universe, as described herein, opens at least as many thought provoking doors as it seems to close. Happy reading: go for it.
It's a bit like a follow on the Tao of Physics but far more over arching in its breadth. READ IT...
Even this book stretched my beliefs even more! Just when I feel that I understand the deeper structure of life and the universe, this takes it a level deeper. I'm especially intrigued how the quantum physics explained in the book is proving ancient wisdom to be true!
