This is the astonishing idea behind the holographic theory of the universe, pioneered by two eminent thinkers: physicist David Bohm, a former protege of Albert Einstein, and quantum physicist Karl Pribram. The holographic theory of the universe encompasses consciousness and reality as we know them, but can also explain such hitherto unexplained phenomena as telepathy, out-of-body experiences and even miraculous healing. In this remarkable book, Michael Talbot reveals the extraordinary depth and power of the holographic theory of the universe, illustrating how it makes sense of the entire range of experiences within our universe - and in other universes beyond our own.Read Less
Some in depth study is required. Good book. You cannot just read through this book in one setting and receive the whole picture. It takes you on an in depth study.

The author states that matter does not exist unless it is being observed. This is impossible to prove. Take the conclusions in this book with a very large lump of salt.

Talbot is not a MENSA candidate
Talbot does what folks dealing with pseudo-"anything" do, grabs one or two established scientific facts and a couple of "buzz" words and then launches off into flights of fantasy. The book does not deal with what its title suggests, except in the most tangential manner. He does follow in the footsteps of such "great intellects" as Erich von Daniken and his, "Chariots of the Gods."

All that we have been thought about the nature of the universe is based on theories that now are being proven wrong. This book delves into the recient research in Quantum Physics and leads the reader down a path worthy of Alice in Wonderland, where all is wonder and puzzlement. Its an exciting journey!

Change the story about your reality, and change your life. We have been forced into an old Newtonian paradigm. It is time to move into a new view of the nature of reality. A good layman's book that attempts to connect various phenomena into a cohesive universal holographic universal principle. I actually started buying multiple copies and handing them out to friends & coworkers. Those people have thanked me repeatedly for opening their eyes. A must read, skeptics welcome!
