Synchronicity and the Holographic Universe (UPDATED)



The late Michael Talbot. A synchronicity in and of itself. More to come- watch this space.

UPDATE: This is timely:
OXFORD - With the shades tightly drawn in the darkened Miami University classroom and a $200 pair of funny-looking 3-D glasses covering your eyes, you can see the future of American higher education.

You can go inside a jet engine or a molecule, simulate a firefight in Baghdad or study a 10-year stock chart, all in three dimensions.

It's part of the Armstrong Interactive Media Studies program at Miami, which spans academic departments all over campus and includes about 300 spots. Most of the classes are filled within seconds after online registration opens.

  1. This book comes up OVER and OVER and OVER again! I read it about 15 years ago. I stumble on it, re-find it, find it referenced - and other people show it to me.

    Whitley Strieber and Mac Tonnies both reference this book as very important (and now Chris Knowles, and ME!)

  2. Dude, talk about syncs... he's explaining the concept in terms of a holographic laser image of a rose... I just got done reading up on Umberto Eco's "The Name of the Rose"... talk about semiotic stew...

  3. Talk about syncs! ... Over the past week I've been revisiting Talbot since stories about the GEO600 experiment have been floating the web.

  6. I feel like when he talks about seeing the fish in the fishbowl and realizing that the two separate images are actually the same its just like people seeing synchronicities in what others think is coincidence.

    Its a great way of explaining it.

  10. Speaking of synchronicities: I couldn't help but notice a certain resonance, catching bits of the Chilean earthquake coverage on tv, between the current Telemundo logo and the 'T'-shaped monumental structures of Göbekli Tepe.

    Pillar vs. Logo

  12. The Big Study blog references a pair of recent articles in New Scientist that struggle with the holographic mind concept.

    http://thebiggeststudy.blogspot.com/2010/02/where-is-mind-science-gets-puzzled-and.html

    Favourite quote from the blog:

    "The writers really don't want to give aid and comfort to the spiritually-inclined "enemy", but even in their waffling they seem to be saying that some kind of wider view of the Mind and it's different nature from the stimulus-response brain is looking to be necessary. They are reduced to a bit of speculative babbling at this point, in my opinion..."

    My pal has a blog, and the first sentence is about HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE. She has paranormal stuff following her, and she is not shy about writing it...

  16. WTF! trippy neg-synch on my part. I just finished reading the chapter in Talbot's Holographic Universe called A Pocket Full of Miracles, covering all sorts of faith healing, extensive chronicling of disease remission across the spectrum. Essentially showing the ultimate power of thoughts over the body and by extension material reality. Well maybe not 'over' but intimately linked to say the least. Anyway as the chapter title suggests it all seems so miraculous and as Talbot is excitedly suggesting the evidence shows that this power lays dormant in all of us, all walks, educated, uneducated etc ect. His line of thought precedes What the Bleep / The Secret/ Emoto et al. by almost two decades. I'm impressed reading this book now having myself been so influenced in this direction over the years, induced placebo, quantum entanglement etc.

    I'm really enjoying the book so I spontaneously decided to check his Wiki page to find out more about him, and BAMM says he lived to be 38 and died in 92 from leukemia, just a year after publishing his masterwork of hope and potential. F*CK!!! that was a buzzkill, not to mention that I'm 38 reading this now. B*tch *ss 'Coincidence' to be sure. dbl f*ck. anyway you get the point. I'm reeling...

  18. Thanks for posting this Chris.
    I probably would never have come across this show,if you hadn't of posted this clip on your blog.
    How timely it was for me to view this here,as I was about to begin another book (I have about 70 books purchased from Amazon to be read),but when I saw this I took it as a sign to take
    "The Holographic Universe" from the pile and read that next.
    Sorry,but it was at the expense of "Spandex"...but that will be the next one...unless you post something about another book in my "to read" pile,that is.-)
