Publisher's Summary

Nearly everyone is familiar with holograms - three-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser. Two of the world's most eminent thinkers believe that the universe itself may be a giant hologram, quite literally a kind of image or construct created, at least in part, by the human mind. University of London physicist David Bohm, a protégé of Einstein and one of the world's most respected quantum physicists, and Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, an architect of our modern understanding of the brain, have developed a remarkable new way of looking at the universe. Their theory explains not only many of the unsolved puzzles of physics but also such mysterious occurrences as telepathy, out-of-body and near-death experiences, lucid dreams, and even religious and mystical experiences, such as feelings of cosmic unity and miraculous healings. Now featuring a foreword by Lynne McTaggart, The Holographic Universe is a landmark work with exciting conclusions that continue to be proven true by today's most advanced physics, cosmology, and string theory.

Dangerous gibberish

To repackage mysticism as exciting frontiers of science is exactly what we should expect in this godless age of self-indulgence.

A Deep Book

There are a lot of complex and interesting concepts covered in the book, which fly by you quickly in an audio format. I've owned the paper version for years, it is one of my favourites. I got the audio book as a refresher, which is what I would recommend to others. Or, listen to this first as a primer, but then you'll want to get the paper version later to allow more time to digest it as you go.

This is what happens when a metaphors is taken literally

A lot of anecdotes with very little proof presented. The concept of a lower dimensional space-time generating our higher dimensional universe through holographic-like principles seems like a very good metaphor needing further investigation. But to take it literally is akin to literal interpretations of the Old Testament.

Fail

I expected this book to reviewed inconsistencies in physics theories and show how holograms can resolve them, similar to how string theory may resolve inconsistencies between quantum physics and general relativity.
Instead this book is a collection of psychic stories and paranormal accounts, which the author argues can be explained by the holographic nature of the universe. The failure is the logic doesn’t work the other way; these paranormal accounts don’t require holograms. You can substitute “holographic universe” with “God” or “aliens” and make the same exact arguments.

excellent

This title was intriguing and one I'll revisit often. I've had beliefs that I'm just now locating scientific resources for my whole life. This audible text is one that affirms my 'knowing' of spirit and life.

I listened to this twice it was SO good!

I really connected to this book as so much was pertinent to my healing work. I am currently navigating through my Healing Touch apprenticeship. I will be incorporating much of this into my practice. There is so much information, I really did have to listen twice.

Holographic equivalent of Ancient Aliens

disappointing, I was expecting at least something on the holographic principle concerning black holes and information. there was none of that, instead he went off into half baked conjecture without going into much depth.

Brilliant, thought provoking work

Talbot fills this treatise with so much scientific evidence that you can help but have your perspective on the world shift and expand. He makes it profoundly clear that our minds are capable of much more than we normally utilize. I reread this book on audible after reading it the normal way years ago. It was just as profound this time as the first. Highly recommended.

truly insightful thoughts into the universe

Brilliant and thought provoking commentary into the infinite universe of the mind and spiritual being. The holographic universe can only be described as life changing and mind altering. Some of the concepts talked about in this book only reinforce my beliefs and I look forward to exploring more on this subject.

A Gorgeous Presentation of Michael Talbot’s Immortal Wisdom

I’ve started this book many times over the past 7 years but could never seem to get through it, despite resonating with the content. Thank you for making this important work accessible to so many more people. You’re doing a real service to humanity. Brilliantly narrated and produced. And over the last 7 years I’ve lived so much of what Michael talks about in the book; exploring levels on consciousness many people wouldn’t yet understand. Michael was so ahead of his time. It’s mesmerizing he wrote about this in 1991. What a gift!
