Holographic Everything

So, in one of my previous posts, I talked about Holography, how it works, and  the brain being holographic in nature.  In this post, I want to talk about Holographic Everything!  After all, since we are nothing but a brain with mechanical controls and sensors, if the brain is holographic, it would follow that everything around us is also holographic.

Just to recap, the holographic principle basically states that everything within the space-time lattice sphere we occupy is a 3-D projection from an eight-dimensional mathematical pattern with 248 points called an E8, and the information to project this image is inscribed and stored on tiny pixels on the lattice sphere’s surface.

Remember my cute and sexy Ningishzida, who talked about all this fun stuff in the third line of his Emerald Tablet?  Let me repost the third line so we don’t have to keep going back and forth from the Emerald Tablet to this posting:

3.  And all things sprang from this essence through a single projection. How marvelous is its work! It is the principle [sic] part of the world and its custodian.

All things sprang from this essence through a single projection—that’s pretty self-evident when we consider the 3D world springing out of a holographic projection of the 2D essence we call E8.

Ningishzida also said It is the principle part of the world and its custodian.  Who is It?  Well, if It is the principle part of the world, wouldn’t that describe a God?  And if It is the caretaker of the world, wouldn’t that also describe a God’s job?

As cool as Ningishzida is, before I believe every word he says, I would still like to have some scientific evidence to give me something firm to stand on.  Sorry Ningishzida.  Nothing personal.  It’s just in my nature to ask lots of questions about what I am told, even by a deity.

Lucky for me, I find all the answers I look for, even as I am looking for them so I don’t have to ahem—challenge one of my favorite deities.  That’s because I am alive and thriving in 2013.

If I haven’t told you before, I am telling you now.  I am super excited to be living in this day and age, partly because life is a cool adventure and partly because I don’t have to work so hard to acquire information.  For the most part, scientific information has only been available to be disseminated and built upon with the advent and the proliferation of the internet.  All of a sudden, information is at our finger tips.  All we need to do is read it for ourselves and then use our mental energies to think it all through.  The answers are there, floating between all the messengers and the message itself.

Here is where physics corroborates what Ningishzida talked about.  Consider an immersive world computer game where we are playing with hundreds and thousands of other people, in a fantasy world where we can do wondrous things.  In the middle of game-play, it does not take much to throw us out of the fantasy and back into our reality.  Any glitch, any pixelated image, any stops-and-starts will serve to remind us that we are simply playing a game.

Once we turn off our computer game, we go back to a world that is real.  This means that we don’t hit glitches in the game, it doesn’t all of a sudden freeze up on us and give us the blue screen of death, the objects we touch and see do not get pixelated even if we look at them up close.  We can even put them under the microscope and we will still not see pixelation.

So let’s talk about pixelation in a video game.  If we zoom in a bit on the image, reality fades away into small squares that are aligned on a grid.  The better the computer, the finer the grid.  The finer the grid, the more realistic the images become, but there is no getting away from the grid.  That’s because the grid is a necessary aspect of computer graphics.  The tiny squares which make up the pieces of the image have to have a designated spot on the grid lines to occupy.

So—let me ask you this.  What does it imply if we are able to locate the grid lines of matter in our universe?  Here is the more interesting question.  What if we have already found these grid lines?

According to an announcement from a team of physicists at the University of Washington [1]:

Currently, supercomputers using a impressive-sounding technique called lattice quantum chromodynamics, and starting from the fundamental physical laws, can simulate only a very small portion of the universe. The scale is a little larger than the nucleus of an atom, according UW physicist Martin Savage. Mega-computers of the far future could greatly expand the size of the Sim Universe.

If we are living in such a program, there could be telltale evidence for the underlying lattice used in modeling the space-time continuum, say the researchers. This signature could show up as a limitation in the energy of cosmic rays. They would travel diagonally across the model universe and not interact equally in all directions, as they otherwise would be expected to do according to present cosmology. [2]

In other words, zoom in far enough to any part of the universe and we see something interesting.  Where the grid work lattice occurs, the energy of the cosmic rays would be curiously missing.  Moreover, it would be missing in a very regular and lattice-like pattern.

It would make sense then that our brain is a hologram and all our senses use holographic method to allow us to experience the universe.  After all, it would take a hologram to make sense of a hologram.  Or to put it another way, “It takes one to know one.”

Wait a minute.  Didn’t Ningishzida imply that It was a God in his Emerald Tablet?  I didn’t just say, in my usual random blonde moment that “It takes a God to know a God”, did I?

OK, let’s just say we are not Gods, but if It is a God, then why does God need a lattice?

As Above, So Below

solar-system A

When I was seven, I found out from my older sister’s science book that the solar system looks like this.

I thought to myself.  Ooooohhhh!  That’s awesome!  I was jealous because my science book didn’t have cool pictures like this.  All my science book had were pictures of katydids and stick bugs.  I read through the entire science text book in a matter of a couple of days hoping to find more interesting things.  I did learn about the nature of sunflowers following the sun around, and acorns which grew into acorn trees (but we have to call them oak trees to appease the indigenous population…I think…not sure).  I couldn’t wait to grow up and learn from the third grade science books.

As it turns out, this picture is all wrong any way.  I wasn’t missing much, that’s for sure.

When I was ten, I found out that the atom looked like this.

atom_structure A

I thought, woooooow!!!  So cool.

I found out that everything was made up of these atoms and the first thing I thought was, there’s so much space in between the nucleus and all the electrons.  How does it feel so solid when there is that much space?

As usual, I read through the entire book within a matter of days to see if I could find the answer to that and a host of other questions, and then spent the next ten months doodling on the edges making cartoons run around the pages as I’m flipping through them.  That’s what artists do when we’re bored.  We decorate our environment with our thoughts.

In this case, it was perfectly OK to draw all over the book.  This diagram is all wrong any way.

Fast-forward roughly ten years later and I’m flipping through a strange ancient text written by Hermes Trismegistus (aka his birth name Ningishzida) called The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus.  It was an amazing text.  I was hooked on Hermes’ mind.  I thought he was the sexiest man alive (well…maybe not alive since he’s been dead for quite awhile).

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I’m no Hermetic Babe.  It’s not that I don’t believe that what the Hermetics believe is incorrect.  Au contraire!  I think his teachings are very valid, and as far as ancient knowledge goes, it is no secret that we are now barely rediscovering lost information from distant past.  I just happen to identify more with Taoism because I am Asian, and the most wonderful thing about Taoism is that it does not preclude my learning about the way from other sources.  There is much to learn from the Bible and the Koran and the Vedas.  There is also much to learn from the ancient texts of Egyptian and Sumerian tablets.  I dig them all.

So, back to the Emerald Tablet.

green tablet

Due to the fact that it was written on a stone tablet, the work only had 14 lines.  However, those 14 lines are quite dense and takes awhile to digest.  Here is the Arabic translation, taken from the Kitab Sirr al-Khaliqa wa San`at al-Tabi`a (“Book of the Secret of Creation and the Art of Nature”), dated between 650 and 830 AD and attributed to Apollonius of Tyana.  This is as close as we mere mortals are going to get to the original text.

Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus

  1. It contains an accurate commentary that can’t be doubted.
  2. It states: What is the above is from the below and the below is from the above. The work of wonders is from One.
  3. And all things sprang from this essence through a single projection. How marvelous is its work! It is the principle [sic] part of the world and its custodian.
  4. Its father is the sun and its mother is the moon. Thus the wind bore it within it and the earth nourished it.
  5. Father of talismans and keeper of wonders.
  6. Perfect in power that reveals the lights.
  7. It is a fire that became our earth. Separate the earth from the fire and you shall adhere more to that which is subtle than that which is coarse, through care and wisdom.
  8. It ascends from the earth to the heaven. It extracts the lights from the heights and descends to the earth containing the power of the above and the below for it is with the light of the lights. Therefore the darkness flees from it.
  9. The greatest power overcomes everything that is subtle and it penetrates all that is coarse.
  10. The formation of the microcosm is in accordance with the formation of the macrocosm.
  11. The scholars made this their path.
  12. This is why Thrice Hermes was exalted with wisdom.
  13. This is his last book that he hid in the catacomb.

Immediately, several lines sprang up and grabbed me.  The first one is line 2:  What is the above is from the below and the below is from the above. The work of wonders is from One.  The next line which caught my eyes is line 10:  The formation of the microcosm is in accordance with the formation of the macrocosm.  There it is again!  Ningishzida had a tiny little tablet to write important stuff on, and this concept was so important that he wrote it twice!  Basically, what he’s telling us is that we only need to look at what’s around us to understand what’s above us.  All this sounds very similar to another famous quotation from the Christian Bible in the book of Matthew 6:10:  Let your will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.

So this is the big secret…so big that people have been killed to try and silence this knowledge.  Entire libraries are destroyed to keep this knowledge from being common-place.  Holy books are wholesale hacked and slashed to remove this information from the general public.  The secret is:  As above, so below.

Ancient Taoist Sages take this one step further.  Since humans are a part of the universe, what is inside of us is also mirrored above and below; therefore, As within, so without.   This knowledge has always been within us.  We just need to look within to find it.  Taoists of ancient times understood the microcosm of humans mirror the microcosm of atoms and the macrocosm of the universe.  Lao Tzu’s prescription for the remembering of the knowledge has always been to look within to understand the external world, both great and small.

Tao Te Ching:  Chapter 47

Without going out the door, know the world
Without peering out the window, see the Heavenly Tao
The further one goes
The less on knows
Therefore the sage
Knows without going
Names without seeing
Achieves without striving.

~ Lao Tzu

So we look at the natural world and what do we see?  We see this:

Evian 064 vortex flowerfunnel cloudvortex seashellvortex cabbagedna vortexRose Of GalaxiesFibonacci spiral hurricane Sandy norway_spiral

All the most powerful, most stable natural structures are vortexes.  So why would we think that our solar system would be a flat spinning plate?  Why would we think our atoms would be flat plates consisting of a nucleus and some electrons spinning around it?

It doesn’t.  We do not live in a two-dimensional world.  In fact, we live in a multi-dimensional world, but we can only see in 3D because of our perceived limitations.  Our 3D bodies do no preclude us from seeing vortexes in the natural world, so when a vortex occurs, we see them as tornadoes, hurricanes, flowers, seashells, even whole galaxies.  From the micro to the macro, they are all vortexes.

Atoms look like this:

Our solar system looks like this:

All of Life, which includes the Universe and all her suns, is a swirling vortex of energy.  From atoms to galaxies, everything is swirling and generating energy at the vortex of the spiral.  There is energy swirling all around us and within us.  We just need to figure out how to tap into this energy and reclaim our birthright.
