Today nearly everyone is familiar with holograms, three-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser.

Now, two of the world's most eminent thinkers -- University of London physicists David Bohm, a former protege of Einstein's and one of the world's most respected quantum physicists, and Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, one of the architects of ou...more

I have decided to add a new shelf called 'slowly reading'. I am reading this book slowly and carefully. Sometimes a paragraph or two is enough for me to stop and digest. Also, often I want to 'spin off' from a section and read related stuff, in books or on the internet. I am reading this in conjunction with Murray Gell-Mann's 'The Quark and the Jaguar', and as happens sometimes they seem to make a good pair. Both are very different in content and approach, yet they are similar in that they show...more

خرداد 87 كه به كتابفروشي رفتم ديدم اين كتاب براي چهارمين بار تجديد چاپ شده است و خوشحال شدم. چهار بار چاپ همچين كتاب جدي و سخت‌خواني نشان‌گر اين است كه خواننده‌ي جدي خوان نيز در بين كتابخوانان پيدا مي‌شود

Q: So the Universe is one enormous holograph aye?
A: Uh-huh.

Q: Does that mean that all those AmRep Dope, Guns, and F*$@ing in the Streets cassettes aren't as good as I remember?
A: No. And I'm not sure how they directly relate to the book.

So every part of a holograph contains the entirety of the holograph. So if you were to cut it in two, each piece would contain the whole "image." Suddenly you would have two pictures of a dolphin jumping over a rainbow. Then four! Et cetera!!! This books likens...more
نظریه ی هولوگرافیک اعجاب انگیزه , اما در حین این که با (اون کله ی هولوگرافیکتون!) در این کتاب غرق شدین این رو هم داشسته باشین که این به هر حال هنوز تنها یه نظریه ست
و حقیقت محض نیست.
و در ضمن ترجمه ی خوبی نداره(چون که مترجمش کارگردانه یعنی در واقع مترجم نیست اصلا!) مخصوصآ حدود صد صفحه ی اول که خیلی علمی تره ترجمه ی بد - به نظر من- بیشتر از اون چه که هست پیچیده ش کرده.
با همه ی این ها این کتاب هنوز ارزش پنج تا ستاره رو داره
...و ارزش این که تو کتابخونه ی همه باشه
تئوریها و نظریه ها، گاه بسیار حیرت انگیزند، باورنکردنی. این گونه کتابها را سریع میخوانم و میگذرم. در خواندن این یکی به دلیل یادداشت دوستی دانشمند، بر هر سطر، پارگراف و گاه بخشها، با تامل بسیار گذر کردم، اگر واقعه ای مرا میآشفت، مطلب را دوباره، گاه چندین بار خواندم. اگر شک با دلم همراه بود، یا آنگاه که مشابه بازگویی رویدادی را خود شاهد بوده ام، اندیشیدم. به هر بخش جدید از کتاب که رسیدم، بر حیرتم افزود، تنوع تحقیق و بررسی های پژوهندگان حیرت انگیزتر از روایت ها بود. در متن، نگارنده به منابع اشاره ک...more
by michael talbot. this is a fun forray into the grand theory of everything. basically, everything is a hologram acording to physicist David Bohm ("Wholeness and the Implicate Order"): waves interfere with each other to form images, objects, everything. that which we can perceive is the explicate order and that which we cannot is the implicate. the implicate contains the explicate, and the boundaries are also constantly wavering. the interesting thing about a hologram is that every part of the h...more
The book that will change your life. Without wanting to spoil the read, or without the urge to get to in-depth about the subject matter in a simple review, I can sum the book up as an alternate view on both quantum physics and neuro-science, and the postulations that the book makes throughout its course are simply marvelous to read about. If there were 6-stars, I'd give this a 6.

The Holographic Universe

This must be one of the most fascinating, if not the most fascinating book I have ever read, and it is a must-read for anyone who is even remotely curious about who and what we really are or who wants to see spirituality meeting science. The claims that are made are backed up by numerous scientific studies, but it doesn't blow you away with scientific jargon. It's written in an easy-to-read style and the different chapters are split up into subsections, which also helps....more
With The Holographic Universe Michael Talbot has created his Masterpiece.
For anyone even remotely interested in the convergence of Science and Metaphysics, this book is a must-read. Talbot masterfully combines science, research, theories on Human Consciousness, and eloquence into a colorful collage which in my opinion remains un-rivaled as the pinnacle of its genre. His narrative is factually detailed while remaining unpretentious; at times he is capable of reducing the empyrean to the mundane....more
کتاب قدری پیچیده و تخصصی است ولی "نویسنده معتقد است که برای عموم نوشته شده نه برای متخصصان فیزیک و فلسفه و اگر خواننده بتواند سی چهل صفحه اول را تحمل کند، کتاب او را برده است...

جهان هولوگرافیک آن جهانی است که هر قطعه کوچک و هر ذره ی آن قطعه، تمام ویژگی ها و اطلاعات کل را در بر دارد، یعنی تمام محتوای کل در هر جزء نیز مستتر است. و این به واقع خصلت مغز ماست که ساختاری هولوگرافیک دارد و خاطره و درد و تجربه و برخی چیزهای دیگر را نه تنها در مغز که در هر ذره کوچک آن نیز نگهداری می کند. و نیز همین خصل...more
Very fun book to read! This book presents anecdotal and scientific evidence in the argument that the universe is actually a combination of various frequencies which our brains then interpret into what we experience as reality. The author uses examples ranging from Near Death Experiences to salamander brain experiments to argue his point.
Overall, I believe a lot of what he is presenting. He does a good job of noting references, but near the end he starts getting a bit more personal in presenting...more

This book is a popular treatment of the ideas of psychologist Karl Pribram and physicist David Bohm, which in turn are based on the concept of holography. Hungarian scientist Dennis Gabor invented (discovered?) holography, and was awarded the Nobel Prize the development of the laser allowed University of Michigan scientists to verify Gabor's theory in the laboratory. Holography produces, in thin air, the three-dimensional image (a hologram) of an object. This is accomplished by splitting a laser...more
This book was probably one of the first to divulgate the conceptions of Bohm about implicate/explicate order, and of Pribram about the nature of brain's activity, and to derive from them some conclusions for our daily world view. This by itself makes the book worth having, though the actual discussion it includes may not please everyone.
Bohm and Pribram agreed that our reality is in fact holographic, and so was the operational principle of the brain (a reader of information concerning the hologr...more
In this book, the presentation of numerous historical accounts of the miraculous from the point of view of a believer is the central theme. Out-of body, near-death, and otherwise supernatural experiences are discussed, and the uniting theme is that the "natural laws" within which physics operates cannot explain all that we observe. What does, you ask? Well, imagine that everything is actually a pan-dimensional interference pattern stemming from a truly holographic universe. What does that mean,...more
There is much fascinating material in Michael Talbot's book, including discussion of scientific theories of the nature of reality and our perception thereof, as well as anecdotal accounts and clinical data regarding a vast array of parapsychological phenomena. Talbot believes that the holographic model of space-time and consciousness developed by David Bohm, Karl Pribram, and others can explain phenomena ranging from UFO encounters to psychic abilities and religious miracles, all of which, it is...more

I have to admit, when I first encountered the idea of us being holograms in a holographic universe it rocked my world. This book builds a case for it being perhaps the most logical theory about the universe shared by many, though certainly not all, physicists. Physics dominates the first third of the book. Talbot makes this portion fairly easy to follow, with some included diagrams.

A holographic universe can account for psychics, clairvoyants, out-of-body and near-death experiences, and other od...more

Recommends it for: everyone
Recommended to Jennifer by: BodyTalk Reference
Basically, a mind-blowing book that should be a requirement for anyone interested in the universe, themselves, others, and how they are all really the same thing. Explains paranormal abilities incredibly well...enough to make the skeptic take note. Incidently, also explains how BodyTalk works...i.e. there is truly only one person in the room during a session. Muscle testing is used to confirm what the practitioner already knows.

Recommends it for: the phy-curious
This foray into the new physics of the 20th century, including the most theoretical of the theoretical, the holographic model for the universe, is on the short list of books that knocked down some walls inside my brain. Maybe you have to read it when you're young, though, before you brain gets calcified with age, unbending, certain. I'm glad I read it when I did.
Thought-provoking book, and one of my all time faves. I have purchased this book a few times and after reading it I always loan it to someone with no expectation that I'll ever get it back...and I never have. An absolute must read!
One of the most scintillating books I've ever read! :)

حرکت روی لبه‌ی علم؛ محتاطانه. تالبوت در پیشگفتارِ کتابش خیالِ دانشمندان را راحت می‌کند: جهان هولوگرافیک یک نظریه‌ی علمی نیست. لااقل هنوز. او با این حرکتِ استراتژیک خیال خودش را هم راحت می‌کند. به این طریق می‌توان پریبرام و بوهم را به حضرت عنایت الله خان و عرفای مسلمان دوخت و فحشی را هم به جان نخرید!
نویسنده یک پیشنهاد دهنده است. در نهایت این خواننده است که محتوای کتاب را برمی‌گزیند. این کتاب را به عنوان ماده‌ای اولیه برای گسترش مرزهای جسارت برای تخیل‌ورزیِ داستانی خواندم. از این منظر کتابِ پرثمری...more
The premise of The Holographic Universe drew me to this book of which I quickly became and remained skeptical. The early chapters start off discussing the properties of holograms (of which I was not aware), well-known corollaries of quantum mechanics, and the mind-body-wellness connection. The idea that the universe and the mind are arranged like holograms—where a piece contains all the information of the whole, among other properties—is intriguing and plausible, despite the paucity of data prov...more

The first part of this book is fascinating as the author explains a theory of how the brain works like a hologram. Apparently if you cut a piece of holographic film, each piece still contains the entire object. The theory states that each section of the brain contains all of our memories and knowledge. Then it moves on to a theory of the universe as a hologram, stating that every electron actually contains all the matter and time of the universe. I'll admit I found the physics theory hard to com...more

This book.... whoa. I didn't at first like it because metaphysical theories usually make sense to me intuitively and the pace seemed kind of slow and pedantic, but that's just necessary since most would not find the information easily digestible. As it picked up steam... quite amazing. There were many times in reading where my inner skeptic was yelling in protest, but the psychic, "supranatural" phenomena he discusses are well-documented (though not understood). Yet the mainstream science commun...more

Recommended to Sam by: I found it myself
This is a very interesting book. It is a theory on how the universe is made up of one huge hologram. It discusses things from outer space to what is going on in your own head, such as dreaming.

This book has taught me to the look at the worlds a little differently. It discusses things along the lines of how the universe was made to a theory similar to "If a tree falls and nobody is around, does it make a noise." The main theory of the book is that the whole Universe is a hologram. It explains tha...more

Many readers of The Holographic Universe will have doubted religion earlier in their lives, and so may be skeptical about spirituality in general. The Holographic Universe is one of those books that proposes the reunification of Eastern and Western thought: the East offering thousands of years of wisdom about the unity of all things; the West providing triumphant Science, which in turn spawns the mixed blessings of the atomization of all reality. Luckily, quantum physics, is now said to bear str...more
The Holographic Universe is a fascinating work. If you are interested in the paranormal – primarily in regards to psychic and telekinetic abilities – you will enjoy this book. Although Talbot’s analogy of the universe as a hologram in the first couple of chapters might be difficult to understand if not hard to swallow, the cases, scenarios, and experiments he refers to thereafter are quite intriguing. Even if you are skeptical of Talbot’s dated perception of the hologram, it is a pretty fun read...more
The first few chapters were excellent, but the book quickly focuses on 'all of the things science cant currently explain' and simply states..."but if the holographic universe idea is real...then all of this can suddenly be explained!"
I really liked the direct comparisons this book makes between current scientific understanding and this new way of thinking...I also liked the facts, the experiments, the unusual findings that have been documented and simply make so little sense that it begins to...more
Starts out promising, with two respected scientists, one who theorizes that holograms can explan some quantum physical properties and the other who uses them to explain how the human brain behaves. Up to that point, I'd have given the book 4 or 5 stars. Then, suddenly, it degenerates into talking about ESP, out of body experiences, telepathy and every other paranormal thing one could dredge up. I ended up skimming over the latter parts of the book because of that. If you have any interest in thi...more
Physical reality is a hologram

This is an interesting book by an author who passionately believes that existence and physical reality perceived through consciousness is generated by a holographic phenomenon. In other words the holographic universe creates reality. This book is described in three parts; the first part describes the central concepts of physicist David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram. The second and third part of the book does an exhaustive review of the work of many psychol...more
