A Scientific American View of Human Holography
In August of 2003, Scientiic American published an issue posing the question "ARE YOU A HOLOGRAM? (Quantum physics says the entire universe might be)." The cover illustration depicts the universe as a sphere around the individual's head, where the 'mind' is, or it is assumed to be. However, within the article inside, there is really nothing said about how the mind might work, or how it might embody the universe as a hologram, or about the mysteries of human consciousness--even though this is suggested by the cover.
| Anyway, in a fascinating article, Information
in the Holographic Universe, Dr. Jacob D.
a physicist of black holes and mini-black holes, discusses how

third force in modern science-relative to the older
of matter and energy. The article also illustrates what happens
science tries to penetrate into the nature of the void, into the deep
of being at the levels of the Planckian units--down at the zero points
levels at which physical differentiation begins. Dr. Bekenstein's
Yet if we have learned anything from engineering, biology and physics, information is just as crucial an ingredient. ... a century of development in physics has taught us that information is a crucial player in physical sytstems and processes. Indeed, a current trend, initiated by John A. Wheeler of Princeton University, is to regard the physical world as made of information, with energy and matter as incidentals. (Bekenstein, SciAm, 2003, p. 59)
According to Dr. Bekenstein, as one petrates down into the nothingness, at Planckian levels, immense amounts of information might actually be contained in a minute volumes of space, or surface area. Paradoxically the physics of black holes suggest that as a physical system of matter and energy collapes down to the level of the Planckian units at 10-33 cm, and beyond, the amount of information which might be contained in Space becomes huge.
Beckenstein considers the amount of information which might be contained within 'a Planck area,' which is a square of two Planck lenghts of 10-33 cm. A Planck's area is 10 -66 cm2. As one gets down to Planckian or zero point levels, in the quantum vacuum or aether, the information content and capacity is huge. Beckenstein states "The entropy of a black hole one centimeter in diameter would be about 1066 bits, roughly equal to the thermodynamic entropy of a cube of water 10 billion kilometers on a side." (pp. 62-3)
In Beckenstein's model, the more we penetrate into the heart of being, vast amounts of information might be contained within the seeming emptiness, and there might be complex inner worlds. Dr. Beckenstein writes:
Given the dizzying progress in miniaturization, one can playfully contemplate a day when quarks will serve to store information, one bit apiece perhaps. How much information would then fit into our one-centimeter cube? And how much if we harness superstrings or even deeper, yet undreamt of levels? Surprisingly, developments in gravitational physics in the past three decades have supplied some clear answers to what seem to be elusive questions. (pp. 60-1)
. ... the deepest level of structure I shall refer to as level X. ... (p.60)
Dr. Bekenstein argues that there seems "to be no limits to how densely information can be packed-and that our universe might be like a giant hologram." Although the article is dealing with theoretical ideas in physics-on black holes, information theory, and the newest model of holography, it all has application to our mystical considerations of the zero-point origins of human consciousness, and in relationship to our studies of the zero point origins of the Cosmos, and of superstrings.
Atkins (2003):explains some of the astonishing ideas of Superstring Theory and M-theory, concerning such elements:
This basic conception of 7 dimensional Calabi-Yau elements, with inner holes, reminds one of Madame Blavatsky's descriptions of the laws of nature. She writes:

a deeper teaching that the Heart is the true centre of the human being,

Dr. Bekenstein certainly does not

Mystical teachings offer such a profound view on the nature of reality,
by the suggestions that human beings have such zero point origins,
some type of triune Monad essences, little Calabi-Yau Spaces,
in higher dimensions.

There are overwhelming evidences for such phenomena, and so many
within science itself which point to the need for a new paradigm within
science--especially when it comes to consciousness studies.
Consider Yogananda's experience of cosmic consciousness as evidence for the mystical conception of the Universe, and the existence of "I" as a zero point source. There are varied reports within the mystical literature of individual experiences which illustrate these paradoxical ideas, about the dimensions of the jivatma and the paramatma, the microcosm and macrocosm. Paramahansa Yogananda, a twentieth century Indian saint and master of kriya yoga, was one of the first eastern sages to become prominent in the west as founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship in America. In his classic Autobiography of a Yogi, Yogananda provides an extraordinary account of his realizations of the true nature of Self. The following is Yogananda’s description of his experience in “cosmic consciousness,” which his Master initiates by striking him gently 'above the heart'--to awaken Yogananda. Yogananda receives grace from his Master in order to “fulfill his heart’s desire.” He then experiences these extraordinary states of enlightenment and cosmic consciousness:
The whole vicinity lay bare before me. My ordinary frontal vision was now changed to a vast spherical sight, simultaneously all-perceptive. Through the back of my head I saw men strolling far down Rai Ghat Lane, and noticed also a white cow that was leisurely approaching. ... After she had passed behind the brick wall of the courtyard, I saw her clearly still.
All objects within my panoramic gaze trembled and vibrated like quick motion pictures. My body, Master’s, the pillared courtyard, the furniture and floor, the trees and sunshine, occasionally became violently agitated, until all melted into a luminescent sea; even as sugar crystals, thrown into a glass of water, dissolve after being shaken. The unifying light alternated with materializations of form, the metamorphoses revealing the law of cause and effect in creation.
An oceanic joy broke upon calm endless shores of my soul. The Spirit of God, I realized, is exhaustless Bliss; His body is countless tissues of light. A swelling glory within me began to envelop towns, continents, the earth, solar and stellar systems, tenuous nebulae, and floating universes. The entire cosmos, gently luminous, like a city seen afar at night, glimmered within the infinitude of my being. ... The divine dispersion of rays poured from an Eternal Source, blazing into galaxies, transfigured with ineffable auras. Again and again I saw the creative beams condense into constellations, then resolve into sheets of transparent flame. By rhythmic reversion, sextillion worlds passed into diaphanous lustre, then fire became firmament.
“It is the Spirit of God that actively sustains every form and force in the universe; yet He is transcendental and aloof in the blissful uncreated void beyond the worlds of vibratory phenomenon,” Master explained. (1998, pp 166-8)
The next illustration depicts esoteric mystical and spiritual teachings about the structuring of the Cosmos. The heart is portrayed as the center of both the individual and the universe, and a multi-dimensional Star of David pattern is established around this--as the matrix of creation. A e human hologram as based on 7 energy centres, chakras, with the Heart Chakra as the central one. This human hologram is founded upon a pixel within the heart, and a vacated space, and the descent of light from within/without through hierarchical planes of being.
Whereas modern science assumes that material
the brain create human consciousness, in a soulless and spiritual-less
biological being, mystical and spiritual teachings depict the heart as
the centre of the human microcosm. These last two illustrations
the 'head doctrine' and 'the heart' doctrine.
Returning to Dr. Bekenstein, he is not likely to realize how such ideas of information theory, black holes and higher dimensions, might relate to the issues of the mind, the heart, or of human consciousness. He does not conceive how a human being might be such a Calabi-Yau Space, vibrating away ceaselessly in seven dimensional hyperspace--potentially within the 'Mind at Large' of Huxley, or the Absolute of Blavatsky, and his own favourite Factor X. I wonder also if he is familiar with the Kabbalist depictions of creation, and how a minute point of Space was vacated, before the descent of the line of light from higher dimensions. How might such things relate to his concepts of the information available within black holes. I will return to address Dr. Bekenstein's article further and to fill in, and to pursue a Kabbalistic metaphysical explanation of dimensions, in the light of modern physics--in our continuing adventures.
