Nearly everyone is familiar with hologramsthree-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser. Two of the world's most eminent thinkers believe that the universe itself may be a giant hologram, quite literally a kind of image or construct created, at least in part, by the human mind. University of London physicist David Bohm, a protÉgÉ of Einstein and one of the world's most respected quantum physicists, and Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, an architect of our modern understanding of the brain, have developed a remarkable new way of looking at the universe. Their theory explains not only many of the unsolved puzzles of physics but also such mysterious occurrences as telepathy, out-of-body and near-death experiences, "lucid" dreams, and even religious and mystical experiences such as feelings of cosmic unity and miraculous healings.
Now featuring a foreword by Lynne McTaggart, Michael Talbot's The Holographic Universe is a landmark work whose exciting conclusions continue to be proven true by today's most advanced physics, cosmology, and string theory.

At the quantum level, it becomes evident that separateness is an illusion. I've heard that before--that all things are vibrantly, dynamically interconnected--but Talbot helped me see it in fresh new ways. He explores how different thinkers illuminate this profound insight.
Especially powerful to me was his explanation of physicist David Bohm's view that space is not empty; it's chockfull of energy. I've been drawn for years to the idea of the "fertile void" in my life. It has allowed me to take risks--such as leaving job and home to travel the world--knowing that something will always come. In fact, I now look at most any circumstance, even the brain surgery I had, as an opportunity for something new to arise. I love thinking about how this disposition is actually lining up with the way the universe works at the subatomic level.
Ultimately, this book asks the question: What is Reality? And it shows how Quantum Physics is drawing the conclusion that Reality is infinitely more than we perceive with our conscious minds, that it's interconnected and infinite and limitless. In other words, science is confirming what mystics have said for thousand of years.
Wow, wow and wow. This book will have you thinking more about things that you haven't thought of before. Being a scientist I thought that I could change my present situations by just thinking something different and it worked. I was able to change the hologram to my liking. Let me explain: In a larger sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as two-dimensional information on the cosmological horizon, the event horizon from which information may still be gathered and not lost due to the natural limitations of space-time supporting a black hole, an observer and a given setting of these specific elements, such that the three dimensions we observe are an effective description only at macroscopic scales and at low energies. Cosmological holography has not been made mathematically precise, partly because the particle horizon has a non-zero area and grows with time.But this books tries to explain that even though the hypothesis has not be explained through mathematics.
But in recent readings an article from Slashdot posted on Techlick shows that some black holes can erase your past and give you unlimited futures and this is proven by math. You can read by doing a search for "Math Shows Some Black Holes Erase Your Past and Give You Unlimited Futures" and in another article at Physics Review do a search for "Quasinormal Modes and Strong Cosmic Censorship".
All I can say in the simplest form is that the Universe is the most beautiful thing given to mankind but while some give their time and effort towards studying the beauty of the Universe others would rather just destroy what beauty we have here on Earth instead of putting that energy towards advancing the knowledge of our race even further.
