BIG HOLOGRAM:Question: I thought that when we speak about a holographic universe, it means we were all part of one big hologram. Answer: That’s a very common misconception, but it simply can’t be true. If  neurophysiologist  Karl  Pribram  is  correct  when  he  says  the  human  brain  is  a holographic receiver and translator… “The brain is itself a hologram… which mathematically constructs ‘hard’ reality by  relying on input from a frequency domain.”1 …then there cannot be one big hologram. If the physical universe we live in were one giant hologram that was shared by all of us, there would have to be one giant brain to receive it as it was downloaded from The Field and convert it from its natural wave state into particles we could perceive; and we would  all  perceive  those  particles  exactly  the  same  way.  We  would  all  see  the  same reality. That,  obviously,  doesn’t  happen.  Each  person,  in  fact,  seems  to  see  a  slightly different reality than anyone else. In fact, our mental hospitals are full of people we call  “psychotic” who see a very different reality than the rest of us. (“Psychosis means an abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term  for  a  mental  state  often  described  as  involving  a  ‘loss  of  contact  with  reality’…. People experiencing psychosis may report hallucinations or delusional beliefs.”2) Standing in a room next to someone who is psychotic, you might see a pleasant, safe atmosphere. The psychotic, on the other hand, could see a torture chamber. That simply would not be possible if there were one big hologram both of you were perceiving. It  is possible,  however,  if  you  are  each  perceiving  your  own  reality  –  a  separate hologram downloaded to each separate brain. A  simple  car  accident,  viewed  by  ten  different  people,  can  have  ten  different “realities” of what happened. You could walk out of a restaurant and your friend could comment on how rude the waitress was, and although you heard the waitress say the same words, you thought she was fine and helpful. Or… “Who are you going to host your website with?” “XYZ company.” “What! Them?” “Yes, why?” “I tried them once. Horrible experience. They really screwed me up.” “I’ve  been  hosting  with  them  for  ten  years, always had great  service,  and they’re  never down.”

There’s  even  a  better  example  I  assume  has  happened  to  all  of  us  at  one  point  or another.  You  see  someone  walking  down  the  street  and  you  turn  to  a  friend  and  say,  “Wow! Is that Brad Pitt?” And your friend looks and says, “He doesn’t look anything like Brad Pitt!” And you insist, “Yes! He looks exactly like Brad Pitt!” So what happened here? When you look at the movies or pictures in a magazine, you see Brad Pitt one way, and the person you saw walking down the street looked just like that,  to  you.  Your  friend,  on  the  other  hand,  sees  Brad  Pitt  in  movies  or  magazines differently, and also sees the person on the street differently, and therefore doesn’t agree with you. If we all lived in a giant common hologram – one big “holographic universe” – we would all see both Brad Pitt and the person walking down the street the same way,  and there would be common agreement on how they look. So  each  individual  human  brain  receives  and  translates  its  own  separate  hologram downloaded by its own Infinite I from The Field. This, of course, is inherent in the truth “you create  your own reality,” if we would just pay attention to what those words really say and mean.
