At 17 Jan 2012 Scientist at GEO600 laboratory for gravitational wave detection published an article claiming that now they have scientific proof that the entire universe is a holographic projection.
I don’t claim that I am an expert in the subject area. Nor I will say that I have lots of information about the subject. I simply want to express some ideas and thoughts. This is an existential question. Who am I? am I defined by the physical appearance as a being? Is this physical projection even real? What is real and what is false? If I want to define myself, can I claim that I think and that is why I exist? If the entire universe is a projection and I am included in this projection do I come from the same source as you? In that case, if we are built from the same source and same projection, are we the same? I don’t believe that we are. In reality, we are different. We like and dislike different things. Our knowledge is different and probably we are speaking different languages. Let’s compare two table produced at the same factory with the same material and basically identical. Can we say these tables are the same? I guess we can say they are identical but not the same. These two tables are two different objects and projection So, if there is the difference between you and me, logic dictates that there must be an additional difference between us which make us unique.
In the old days’ people were calling this a soul and nowadays it is called consciousness. But the bottom line is that the moment this projector is turned off, you and I no longer exist. It is like a cinema when we look at the film the content of the film does not exist on the cinema screen but in the film, which is in the projector. furthermore, the actors cannot do anything of their own, what we see is recorded so, the content always will be the same.
Is there an intelligent being behind the projector?
Let me introduce you to another concept. Akashic records. Wikipedia explains this term as follow:
In Theosophy and anthroposophy, the Akashic records are a compendium of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future. They are believed by tTheosophiststo be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the etheric plane. There are anecdotal accounts but there is no scientific evidence for the existence of the Akashic records.
I am not sure, but this sounds a lot like our projector which projects holographic universe. In my mind, this will have the following implication: Nothing we have is our own. If we believe that the knowledge, information, emotion etc. from past, present, and future is recorded in this etheric plane, we no longer possess anything we have of our own. Everything we think, feel and know at the present and future is already in this etheric plane. I don’t want to come to this conclusion really but if I don’t exist and everything we know and do has been always been there, then we are not unique. So, the question remains, who am I? or who are you?
