Applying the Holographic Model to Abrahamic Creationism
“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. The universe is not separate from this cosmic sea of energy.” – David Bohm.
As we have seen thus far, neither cosmology, philosophy, physics, nor Abrahamic religious creation theories can provide a definitive explanation of creation. None of these theories abolish the others beyond a shadow of doubt. However, there is one theory that connects them all together in some ways. It seems to fill in the holes that the other theories do not, and it does so in a manner that makes all of the other theories more plausible, but also more believable. That theory that seems to unify them all is the Holographic Principle.
The holographic principle basically states that the world we live in a hologram, and that what we currently consider reality is really just a perceived version on reality that might not be a true representation of what is really out there. It is an interesting, yet controversial opinion that is widely rejected by the scientific community. However, the holographic universe does help to fill in the gaps that current theories in cosmology and physics cannot. This fact alone, makes it one worth delving deeper into.
The holographic universe as first presented by theoretical physicist David Bohm suggests that reality as we experience it is only a hologram, and that our ‘reality’ isn’t real at all. This theory is reminiscent of indigenous peoples who believed that our existence is no more than an illusion or dream. How this theory works in science is that our universe is viewed as a consciousness hologram, and our reality is a projected illusion that exists within the hologram. Some believe that what we think of as reality is really just a large virtual experiment that created time in a linear fashion (According to relativity time is a linear measurement and that it only moves forward) so that the collective consciousness hosting the experiment can study human emotions.
The theory suggests that our hologram consists of grids, matrix etc., that is created by a source consciousness that is brought into sentience through electromagnetic energy at a physical level. The hologram uses Sacred Geometry to create the dynamic grids, which implies that some sort of self-aware beings created us and are monitoring us from a distance. This is likely where the concepts of ‘alien’ life forms aiding ancient man with minor technologies gets it steam.
During Bohm’s research into the behavior of how particles behave, he came across a cylinder experiment that helped to shape his ideas on particle behavior later on. At that time, scientists were trying to figure out if particles act as waves or if they acted as mass at shorter distances (when viewed closer) .During this experiment, Bohm saw that if you added a drop of ink to a cylinder filled with water and turned it clockwise, the ink spread out and disappeared; when you switched direction and turned the water counterclockwise, the drop of ink would come back together and appear solid again. This phenomenon gave Bohm his first epiphany in how particles may work.
Research being done at that time had noted physicists like Albert Einstein postulating that particles can only be measured at great distances when they were being observed (from greater distances particles can be viewed which means they have mass), and that when observed at a shorter distance, they seemed to disappear (possibly meaning that they act as waves). From this perspective, Bohm wondered how the particles behaved when unobserved, and if they still behaved that way at varying distances. That’s when the cylinder experiment gave him an idea. What if, after particles became entangled (connected), they stayed connected, and continued to communicate when separated despite the distance between them? What if once particles became entangled, they continue to exist in the same state, at the same moment in time regardless of their distance apart?
Why does this information particle behavior matter when you delve into creation? It’s that particle behavior that started it all. That behavior that may define whether the universe operates at random or with forethought. Once Bohm realized that once electrons were in a plasma, they stopped behaving like individuals and starting behaving as their were a part of an interconnected whole, as if they were alive (a fact that Bohm himself once commented on).
What makes Bohm’s discovery so important theologically is that it implies a predestination at work in nature. It implies an overwhelming sense of order, intent, and intelligence to seemingly random events that occur on a molecular level. It sets the stage for religious ideologies that would eventually dominate the human subconscious eons after creation occurred. Bohm’s work is very influential in that his book Quantum Theory, 1951 presents a clear account of the orthodox Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics, which was created mostly by Neils Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in the 20’s.
In regards to quantum theory, Bohm assumed that elementary particles are actually systems of an extremely complicated internal structure that act as amplifiers of data that is contained within a quantum wave. Because of this amplification, Bohm developed a new theory of what reality really is that he coined ‘implicate order’. Implicate order basically connects everything to everything else in the universe. Bohm used his concept of implicate order to explain bizarre occurrences in nature from the behaviour of subatomic particles, which quantum physicists still cannot explain.
The bizarre behavior I am speaking of is how particles, once they come into contact with one another, remain interconnected throughout time and space as mentioned above. He believed that this sort of connectedness requires a subliminal signal being sent between them, and that this signal travels faster than the speed of light (which would be instantaneous if the particles ‘felt’ rather than ‘sent’ information between one another. Bohm called this type of instantaneous communication between particles the EPR effect, (an abbreviation of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen; based a thought experiment conducted by them).
This hidden form of communication may reflect a deeper dimension of reality, but it may also suggest that its caused by unobserved sub-quantum forces and particles, and may be produced by hidden means that do not conflict with how we normally see reality. This is the very nature of the implicate order and offers an explanation of why we are all connected in a way that allows us to view information about every other element on earth and in the cosmos simply by looking at one individual element. The information available in one element, is available in all of them. Religion often implies the same thing, but uses the spirit to explain it.
In the end, the holographic model brings together theories that otherwise are not linked; including theology, and determinism. Why does this matter? It becomes part of the foundation for my later research which is slowly making its way to these sections, so keep a look out.
