Recently, I ran into an interesting science article that illustrates how science can come ever closer to a consciousness model, yet not even be considering that as its conceptual framework.
Personally, I consider the analogy a little weak, but it does point to the idea of the world as Maya, a dream.
The article describes an experiment to measure gravity waves in minor perturbations of a laser beam. They have however been struggling with noise. Noise from passing clouds and distant traffic. But also noise that may illustrate a limit of space-time, where they’re actually sensing the subtle fundamental vibration of space-time itself on it’s boundary.
This is essentially what might be called the event horizon of space-time. And the primordial sound. It’s recognized as potentially being as important as the accidental discovery of the cosmic microwave background, the “afterglow” of the big bang.
The theory suggests that we live in a giant hologram. “Our everyday experience might itself be a holographic projection of physical processes that take place on a distant, 2D surface.” The event horizon encodes the information within it. What people in my field would call the surface of mind. I’d just take out the words might, physical, and distant.
“If space-time is a grainy hologram, then you can think of the universe as a sphere whose outer surface is papered in Planck length-sized squares, each containing one bit of information.”
The correct concept is an egg-shaped structure, long described in the Rig Veda as hiranya garbha. What we call the universe is a reflection of that, stirring the “event horizon” or inner surface of the awareness bubble into action. This surface is also known as universal mind.
They may be beginning to be able to measure the activity of universal mind. And that’s just noise too. 😉
