If you have any questions please call:[masked]. A weekly drop-in study group in our “Science and Consciousness” series, Reading and Discussing The Holographic Universe Suggested donation: $5 Nearly everyone is familiar with holograms – three-dimensions images projected into space with the aid of a laser. Two of the world’s most eminent thinkers believe that the universe itself may be a giant hologram, quite literally a kind of image or construct created, at least in part, by the human mind. University of London physicist David Bohm, a protégé of Einstein and one of the world’s most respected quantum physicists, and Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, an architect of our modern understanding of the brain, developed a remarkable new way of looking at the universe. Their theory explains not only many of the unsolved puzzles of physics but also such mysterious occurrences as telepathy, out-of-body and near-death experiences, lucid” dreams, and even religious and mystical experiences such as feelings of cosmic unity and miraculous healings. Michael Tlabot’s The Holographic Universe is a landmark work whose exciting conclusions continue to be proven true by today’s most advanced physics, cosmology, and string theory. – from back cover “What is reality? This book may answer that question once and for all.” – Fred Allen Wolf, Ph.D., author of Taking the Quantum Leap “In The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot argues nothing less than that the universe is itself one giant hologram. Mr. Talbot thus explains out-of-body experiences, quantum-theory problems, the paranormal, and other unsolved riddles of brain and body.” – New York Times “Astounding….Talbot is onto something exciting.” – St. Louis Post-Dispatch “A classic in the field of science and spirituality….A new scientific story is emerging, offering evidence that all matter exists in a vast web of connection.” – from the foreword by Lynne McTaggart, author of The Field, The Intention Experiment, and The Bond
