Is paranormal a mere fantasy, a creation of irrational self-suggestion? Or is there a deeper truth that can take mankind to the threshold of a higher existence?
IS THE WORLD A HOLOGRAM?
How can a person receive instant telepathic messages from somebody half a world away? Or will something to happen across thousands of miles?
Theories of electromagnetic fields and brain currents remain mere speculations in the absence of proof. And their unscientific nature or apparently paranormal characteristics make them unacceptable to conventional scientists.
The faculty of ESP itself seems rather fickle. Some people score high on one test and no more than average on another. Also, there is the non-repeatability factor in laboratory conditions. But can any scientist duplicate conditions under which the repeatability of the ESP phenomenon might be studied?
ESP, which largely depends on the states of mind and level of concentration, would need identical brain patterns each time the experiment is repeated, including emotions, moods, sense perceptions et al, for the study of its repeatability under identical conditions—an impossible demand.
Most scientific theories about the paranormal either discard it as illusion or fail to take into account many unanswerable questions. One cogent explanation seems to lie in the English Physicist David Bohm's theory of a holographic universe.
A hologram is a kind of optical storage system where each part contains in it the image of the whole. Thus, in a holographic universe, the parts that seem to be separated by time and space are in reality one, and any part at any given time has access to everything that is part of the universe.
In his book Languages of the Brain, Karl Pribram suggests that the brain operates like a hologram, which might have access to a greater hologram, the universe. The separate realms of time and space, things and events might exist in our limited perception but intrinsically they are all one and part of the same hologram.
This also seems to agree with the French philosopher Henri Bergson's concept of time as a row of infinitesimal points, which often give glimpses of infinity. Such moments, according to Bergson, are points of intersection when time meets infinity.
Experiences of ESP can also be regarded as similar intersections of time when the limited mind suddenly beholds the oneness of things in the magnificent hologram of the universe.
