The Holographic Universe

 

The Holographic UniverseNew York: Harper Perennial, 1992.

The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot is an extraordinary book, and a captivating read from the first to the last page. Not only has this book merited more than five stars, it merits both a literary prize and a distinction for exemplary scientific research. As the author has already passed over into greater life dimensions, these are posthumous laurels. But my recognition of the author’s genius, his motivation, his purity, and his literary and spiritual maturity is real.

The book has been a true companion for me, and it accompanied me on all trips over weeks. To begin with, the author has not just delivered an extensive study on the vast realm of psychic phenomena, he also has consulted personally a number of researchers he refers in his book. As Talbot revealed in a few notes, he had himself strong psychic abilities and was psychic already as a child. This may explain in part his participatory experience as a scientist and his fundamental understanding of the topics at stake.

Talbot makes a strong point for the holographic nature of the universe and of psychic experiences in general, and I can virtually not see how his theory can be refuted, so well-founded it appears. An important point of departure, just as in Lynne McTaggart’s startling book The Field, is the acknowledgment of a plenum where mechanistic science claims to find a vacuum:

Space is not empty. It is full, a plenum as opposed to a vacuum, and is the ground for the existence of everything, including ourselves./51

The Conscious Universe

 

The Conscious UniverseThe Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena, San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1997.

In this well-written book, Dean Radin meticulously defines the scientific terms he is using for describing psychic phenomena. The following definitions are to be found on pages 14 and 15 of the book.

Telepathy

Information exchanged between two or more minds, without the use of the ordinary senses.

Clairvoyance

Information received from a distance, beyond the reach of the ordinary senses. A French term meaning ‘clear-seeing’. Also called ‘remote-viewing’.

Psychokinesis

Mental interaction with animate or inanimate matter. Experiments suggest that it is more accurate to think of psychokinesis as information flowing from mind to matter, rather than as the application of mental forces or powers. Also called ‘mind-matter interaction,’ ‘PK,’ and sometimes ‘telekinesis.’ Continue reading

Infinite Mind

 

Infinite MindScience of Human Vibrations of Consciousness, Malibu, CA: Malibu Publishing, 2000.

I found Infinite Mind by Valerie Hunt only recently, while it’s not a new book. It was published in 2000, but the research it is based upon dates back to the 1970s. But that does in no way turn down or diminish the importance of this book. In the contrary, it shows that every thorough research needs decades to really condense into something we call a science. And then, there is another lapse of time involved in this science to be recognized by the established science tradition and academia!

This has to my knowledge not been done yet specifically for Hunt’s Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness, but it has been done in a larger framework, within what today is called consciousness research, and which has been fertilized by many different sciences. Continue reading
