The Holographic Universe

Excerpt from "The Holographic Universe"

Richard Feynman, a famous quantum physicist, once said that if you really understand the Double Slit experiment, you can understand all of quantum physics, and how the entire universe works as well.

When we speak of an electron existing as a “wave,” it isn’t like an ocean wave, or a radio wave. It is more like a wave of possible locations where the electron could end up as a particle when it is observed – a wave of possibilities.

This “wave of possibilities” in which the quantum world exists has been called many names over the years, such as…
• the “quantum wave function”
• the “implicate order”
• the “Planck Scale”
• the “zero point field”
• the “superstring field”
• the “unified field”

Mainly it is just called “the Field.” It is a field of unlimited possibilities out of which everything is created.

The Field – it is a field of unlimited possibilities out of which everything is created.

Lynne McTaggart, author of “The Field,” defines it as “a field of all possibility.” (page xxi)

In other words, everything you can think of, and everything you can’t think of, and everything no one can think of, already exists in wave form in the Field.

So…. The “Field” is a “place” outside of space and time where everything (all possibilities) already exists, but only in “wave” form. This field does not contain particles; it is not matter; it is not part of the physical universe. Instead it is what the entire universe is made from – from these waves of possibilities.

The problem is that no one can prove that the Field exists. You can’t see it; you can’t photograph it; you can’t measure it; you can’t hold it in your hand. But when quantum physicists assume the Field is there, they can make incredibly accurate mathematical predictions about the physical universe and how it behaves, which they can not do without taking the Field into account.
Think of it like electricity. You can’t see electricity itself; you can only see what electricity produces.

In the words of Albert Einstein, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

But this idea that “reality” is an illusion is not a new concept. Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism all talk about Maya, or life as an illusion.

“The real sky is knowing that samsara … merely an illusory display.”
- Mipham Rinpoche, Quintessential Instructions of Mind, p. 117

The Kabala says that “the first aspect of God is all that there really exists; all else is an illusion.”

A Course in Miracles puts it this way… “In any state apart from Heaven life is illusion…. Outside of Heaven, only the conflict of illusion stands; senseless, impossible and beyond all reason…. Illusions are but forms. Their content is never true.” - T-23.11.18:8-19

What quantum physics has done is…

1. Scientifically confirmed what many other people have said about “reality” being an illusion, and…
2. Discovered that “reality” is actually a holographic picture that only looks and feels real.

2. Interesting thought I had prior to your post...

From each of our past lives( multiply that by trillions, right?), we have created several things...and what we actually see now, all of the "illusions" , are the result of all of us, everything we've created. We are working a grand artist's palette and and it is the sum total of all we've done, felt or thought throughout time from the creative spark from ALL of our lives.

This is based on the idea that we created the universe.

3. I believe that we will find "God" where Quantum science meets Spirit. I read The Field, awhile

ago, need to reread it as twice was not enough.

Thanks for the thread, mother earth!

4. I was pondering a related thought last night...about vibrations and "waves"...

and it resulted in this graphic. The whole microcosm/macrocosm aspect of this field.

Thanks, mother earth.

5. And that's the level that true astrology works on

that's why it's SO HARD to explain. Her book is great.
Content is all in our mind, imaginary, imho

6. This film series...

explores this topic. It's beautiful and so complex that I can't grasp the full meaning by listening/watching. I'm a visual/kinetic learner, and I won't understand this until I take time to make some notes. Even so, it is richly full of imagery for those things we don't see.
