From the Back Cover
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, Michael Talbot's The Holographic Universe is a landmark work whose exciting conclusions continue to be proven true by today's most advanced physics, cosmology, and string theory.

The chapters structure in the book is also really chaotic and the author seems to be jumping from one point to the next without a smooth flow.
Another thing, we are in 2018 now so it is quite outdated and should perhaps not be the first choice of readers but something more timely relevant that is out there.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a great read but drawbacks that I mentioned above are a lot and doesn’t deserve 5 stars.
I have since recommended this book to everyone I know

Such a brilliant writer and thinker
It's such a shame his life was cut short I can only imagine what other great revelations he would have next come up with
Buy it you won't regret it and you're life will never be the same again
All in all though, this is an intriguing mixture between science and a spiritual philosophy of sorts which easily stands the test of time.
Today, we live in a similar world to the one of the Egyptians, the Romans, the 'believers'. Today, science as a tool, delivers astonishing facts and ideas but then they too are filtered into a main stream and material sense of reality. I love science as a tool. Alas, I see how it, today, is a filtered system of correctness. Break me out of the prison, of politic, of reputation, of justification of career intent, and tell me the ideas which are considered an answer and a rational model for the reality I am part of, please, someone!
Michael did it. He thought about it, freed himself from the bias of most of the entrenched camps, and put together a book which can allow you to consider what great minds have thought about and fought about. He delivers a convincing set of answers to everyone who really wishes to consider the unanswerable questions. What is mind? What is reality?
Sadly, his presentation here in this physical facet of a more profound reality has faded away prematurely, but not the legacy of his mind and his ability to stitch together astonishing, ground-breaking evidence that reality itself is far more than bits of matter bouncing around to be forever probed for the bits which do not really exist.
Bravo, Michael. The road opens for new Galileos, fresh 'heretics' to present a case well. I for one would smuggle this one out to introduce to a world and a people already the blind disciples of the wrong kind of scientific preaching.
This is no Thor, no Odin; there is no one God; there is no atom; there is no quantum magic solved by universes fracturing on the whim of an observer witnessing a particle event; no multi-verse: it is all quite different and the theory of the Holographic Universe is probably a more solvable practical issue now than ever before.
The implications are staggering!
The experiments have begun, in late 2014, to find even more evidence of the evidence and clues already discovered.
Here is a possible answer which out distances all other rational alternatives.
Try it and see if it works for you.
One thing is certain: the universe is a very mysterious place indeed and sometimes the arrogant attitudes of certain prominent professional scientists are quite baffling and, ironically, also quite naive.
The principle works in other disciplines than science. Our basic principles in both education and medicine are similarly rigid. As Ivan Illych said some years ago, "Medicine exists to keep you sick, education exists to keep you ignorant". It is certainly true that many treatments provided for patients in fact often add to their illness, and sometimes the treatment kills them before the disease does. From my own experience, I would agree with David Icke that religion exists to prevent its adherents living the fullness of life as God intended it to be, and as in reality it IS - in God. I don't think it is at all necessary to throw God out because of that. It is rather essential that we start to realise that it is precisely IN God that we all live and move and have our being. The idea that we "create our own reality" is hinted at in DLS's "The Mind of the Maker", where she says that as we are made in the image of God, we are by nature creators, like our father...co-creators WITH him.
But one doesn't have to believe in God to see that Talbot is pursuing a line in this book which radically alters our understanding and perception of what we call reality. I found it an exciting read, a bit of a roller-coaster really, and I heartily recommend it to anyone who is interested in expanding their view of life and the world. Cassandra
I suppose Michael now has the answers to all his questions given he died shortly after this book was published.
