The Holographic Universe
The Revolutionary Theory of Reality
“In The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot argues nothing less than that the universe is itself one giant hologram. Mr. Talbot thus explains out-of-body experiences, quantum-theory problems, the paranormal, and other unsolved riddles of brain and body.” — New York Times
Now featuring a foreword by Lynne McTaggart, 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.
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.

“A wake-up call to wonder, an adventure in ideas.”
— Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Space, Time & Medicine
“Elegant. . . helps to bridge the artificial gap that has opened up between mind and matter, between us and the rest of the cosmos.”
— Lyall Watson, author of Supernature
"In remarkably readable prose (even when dealing with physics), Talbot explores the ways in which our concepts of time, personality, and even consciousness are altered by defining them as holographic. . .controversial but fascinating material."
“Astounding . . . clear and convincing. Talbot is on to something exciting.”
