The Event Horizon

The Event Horizon

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.

Our world may be a giant hologram

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.  😉

    That’s a little different. Sutras are threads. Superstrings are little coiled up bits, more like broken threads 😉

    Myself, I’m not convinced superstring is the way to go. It’s a little like Alice in Wonderland. How far down the hole do you wish to go? The more you look, the more you’ll find.

    The better approach is to understand whats going on in the first place. If a theory is getting too convoluted to be supported by observable phenomena, adding 95% hidden mass may not be the way to go. This is putting theory ahead of fact.

    1. Yes, thanks Chris.
      Interesting. I’ve studied some of Nassim’s work. This particular article is a short review of another paper. There is the mentioned assumption that consciousness is a by-product of complexity where actually, consciousness is the platform for form to arise in. Complexity is the result of iterations. Hence, evidence of fractals and holographic effects. (there is feedback loops also but consciousness is primary)
      Space itself is nested so there isn’t one event horizon but a whole series of them. This and the points they raise in the article are one of the reasons drilling ever smaller is a rabbit hole that won’t lead you to source, just progressively smaller and more abstract iterations. (quarks, superstrings, etc)
      It is very interesting that light and sound are recognized ways biology uses to structure itself, although I’m not sure how much of the comments are mainstream.
