In last week's blog post I wrote about a CBC article on new scientific study of the holographic universe idea first looked at in the 1990s. That article says the experts don't have the words to describe what it is they think they know and that leaves a lot of room for someone like me to play around with the idea.
I'm not a scientist, definitely not. I barely understand what real scientists write about. Fortunately there are wonderful writers these days, scientists and others, making science accessible to non-scientists, even not-too-bright non-scientists like me.
For a few decades now, interesting discoveries and ideas in science have also been written about in accessible ways by new age writers, some with a science background, some not. One of those authors was Michael Talbot. He explored some of the science around the holographic universe idea in his 1991 book, The Holographic Universe.
In the introduction to that book he tells us, '…there is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it—from snowflakes to maple trees to falling stars and spinning electrons—are … projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time.'
In other words, it is beyond, outside, or in back of the Big Bang, back where something we humans might call 'God' might have spoken something we might call 'words' exploding this reality into being.
