Book: The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

This book is referenced in Paramahansa Yogananda’s book, God Talks with Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita. It is extremely interesting to me to see that the teachings of the ancient rishis of India and the findings of modern quantum physicists are in perfect accord. Talbot makes the new science easy to understand and skillfully places it beside ancient philosophy in a way that I found enlightening.

From Library Journal

Author Talbot writes that “. . . there is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it. . . are also only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time.” Hence, the title of his book. Beginning with the work of physicist David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, both of whom independently arrived at holographic theories or models of the universe, Talbot explains in clear terms the theory and physics of holography and its application, both in science and in explanation of the paranormal and psychic. His theory of reality accommodates this latest thinking in physics as well as many unresolved mind-body questions. This well-written and fascinating study is recommended for science collections.
