How we think about reality is largely based on what we are taught; hearsay.
Whenever people come to new insight this can upset conditioned collective cultural convention: hearsay is called heresy.
The following is a step-by-step guide into
thinking about the universe as a hologram
Science is collective hearsay. Atoms, electrons, photons exists only in our mind. The same is the case when we describe the same in terms of waves
The following helps you to come to regard the universe that you are part of, as a system of waves.
Staring point lies in what you can see in the world around you:
- cloudscapes, water waves, landscape tectonics.
These all have an underlying pattern: known as (hydro)dynamics: the flow of matter.
This can be described in more general terms: as the functions of mathematics. Mathematical functions model what we se in nature, in terms of an interplay of symbols. Reality is what we perceive; mathematics is what we think.
Dennis Gabor developed an elegant method to describe this; much later the mathematics model for holography was actually created: the hologram. He received a nobel prize for this.
There is a branch of hologram mathematics.
Michael Talbot has helped to make these ideas more known to the general public.
Physicist David Bohm described the transition level between the classical particular model and the integral wave notation: the Rheo Mode”, and “the implicate order in wholeness”.
Consciousness researcher Karl Pribram showed how they can help understand how we think. He has provided tremendous amounts of work on the relationship between holograms, consciousness, realisation and the brain. Stuart Hameroff is one of those taking this work further.

Itzhak Bentov (inventor, engineer, who measured brain waves) showed how this determines our experience in/of our body:
- Model of the Universe as seen by Itzhak Bentov (2:50)
- Itzhak Bentov - From Atom to Cosmos (1hr48)
“Itzhak Bentov (1923-1979) was a scientist, inventor, and an early pioneer in the research of consciousness. By blending analytical knowledge and intuitive insight, Itzhak Bentov was the first to develop what is now widely accepted today as a holographic model of reality. "I am attempting to build a model of the universe that will satisfy the need for a comprehensive picture of 'what our existense is all about.' - Itzhak Bentov This program is based on Itzhak Bentov's two books, "Stalking the Wild Pendulum," on the mechanics of consciousness, and "A Cosmic Book" on the mechanics of creation. Includes a rare recording of Itzhak Bentov's last television appearance and his inspirational exploration of consciousness and the cosmos, presented in its original form by his wife Mirtala. Ultimately your perception of reality will be turned inside out by the facts presented in this critically acclaimed program. "A ground breaking work. Bentov offers a revolutionary image on the human mind and the universe." - Dr. Stanislav Grof "An astonishing work, an absolute must for any pioneer on the spiritual journey." - Judith Hollister«

Michio Kaku (physicist)
In order to understand complexity, we need to use language tools which will help us do that; compare changing from using a stick, to chop sticks, to a fork.
One of the reasons to do this is seen in the clumsy attempt to understand in the 2 minute clip String Theory.
I mathematics we see this transition in the change from Numbers to Functions to Fractals to Holograms.
In each step, the complexity of the tool for description increased; due to which the simplicity of the description increased also.
Mathematical functions, Mathematical Series, Complex Fourier Analysis and Gabor Holographic models followed - logically - one out of the other.
In the same way this changed the view on Numbers, to vector to matrix to Sets.
Each time the way of looking changes, that what was seen changed also.
The art of Mathematics is to CREATE the mathematical tools (formulation) to help achieve the simples form of description.
Beware: there are no ‘proofs’ in mathematics.
A ‘mathematical proof’ can be compared to ‘proper speech’.
It is (only) an agreement that the language has been ‘properly’ used.
Mathematics is not about proper speech, but about inventing net words, syntax, functions and new logic.
Progress in mathematics is seen by the emergence of NEW LOGIC, indicating that we (humanity) managed to start to think in a different manner.
Mathematics simply helps to communicate/express that.
Famous is the example of Evariste Galois, who was ridiculed (at the Polytechnique) for his ‘strange mathematics’, which later started a new stream in mathematical thinking.
It is in this way that this course/page invites you to think in a different manner.
In order to see reality as it is, look at your realisations.
Use art to change your way of thinking.
Use meditation to resolve/dissolve fixed ways of thinking.
Not the form matters, but the forming: information in formation.
Mathematician Lawrence Edwards offers the key to understanding life; and freedom of choice. He showed that the Vortex/Egg is the natural shape of a point, line. plane, space turning inside out on itself. This is the mathematical basis of Systemic Inversion, System Singularities, Functionality and Formation.
His work was pivotal to the creation of this web site and the principles of dimensional transformation, which is its essence. In a vortex the dimension 0, 1, 2 and 3 are logically interconnected. It is this principle which, in different forms, provides the whole understanding of the principle of g.o.d., creation, consciousness and information.
His work is based on Projective Geometry: the mapping of a form from one dimensionality to another; such as a sphere onto a plane (a circle or ellipse, parabola or hyperbola).
This principle is seen also on the relationship between:
a number, vector, tensor and spinor(rotation); or
a number, vector, matrix and Gabor matrix(unfolding), or
a number, vector, fractal and holon(extension).
(The holon is a integral dimensional singularity inversion.)
All these transitions, too, are related by Dimensional Transitions. The Alchemical Four Elements represent the same concept.
Works such as Forms & Forces, Forms of Nature, The Laws of Form and the Geometry of Meaning all emerge out of this understanding.
Dan Winter has given beautiful visual representations of the concepts involved.
At this point in the conversation, you might want to opt for a change of mind; and experience what is being described:
