Is the Universe a Holographic Reality?

Is the Universe a Holographic Reality?
The Universe as a Hologram by Michael Talbot Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm? In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science. Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.

Did Comet ISON survive? Scientists see tiny hope (Update) A comet that gained an earthly following because of its bright tail visible from space was initially declared dead after grazing the sun. Now, there is a sliver of hope that Comet ISON may have survived. New images being analyzed Friday showed a streak of light moving away from the sun that some said could indicate it wasn't game over just yet. "It certainly appears as if there is an object there that is emitting material," said Alan Fitzsimmons, an astronomer at Queens University in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Basically a dirty snowball from the fringes of the solar system, scientists had pronounced Comet ISON (EYE'-sahn) dead when it came within 1 million miles (1.6 million kilometers) of the sun Thursday.

Synchronicity Synchronicity Gears of Time and Illusion Law of Attraction and Manifestation - Meaningful Coincidences - "The Secret" How the Hologram Works Suppressed Inventions and Other Discoveries - Archaeological Cover-Ups? by David Hatcher Childress Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past. George Orwell, 1984 Heavy Boots Editorial note: I received this as an email from a friend who got it from a friend who ... I do not know who the original author is, but I do believe this to be true. Who could possibly make it up? Heavy Boots About 6-7 years ago, I was in a philosophy class at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (good science/engineering school) and the teaching assistant was explaining Descartes. He was trying to show how things don't always happen the way we think they will and explained that, while a pen always falls when you drop it on Earth, it would just float away if you let go of it on the Moon.

10 Great Screenshots From The Maury Povich Show Love him or hate him, Maury Povich knows how to entertain. So for your enjoyment, we’ve scoured the internets for screenshots and gifs, and compiled a top 10 list of great moments in The Maury Povich Show. There are also several excellent Maury videos on YouTube, but we’ll save those for another list. Pleiades Observational history[edit] The Pleiades are a prominent sight in winter in both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere, and have been known since antiquity to cultures all around the world, including the Māori, Aboriginal Australians, the Persians, the Arabs (known as Thurayya), the Chinese, the Japanese, the Maya, the Aztec, and the Sioux and Cherokee. In Tamil culture this star cluster is attributed to Lord Murugan (Lord Murugan raised by the six sisters known as the Kārththikai Pengal and thus came to be known as Kārtikeyan). In Sanskrit he is known as Skanda. The Nebra sky disk, dated c. 1600 BC. The cluster of dots in the upper right portion of the disk is believed to be the Pleiades.

Step 6: Upgrade Your Brain Your intelligence is infinite. Intelligence is not fixed. Studies have shown repeatedly that with training, supplements, and time – intelligence can always be increased. Researchers warn against high emissions from oil palm expansion in Brazil Expanding millions of hectares of Brazilian land to produce palm oil for food or for renewable, clean-burning biodiesel could result in extremely high emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) unless strict controls are put in place. This is according to a new study published today, 14 November, in IOP Publishing's journal Environmental Research Letters, by a group of researchers from the University of California, Davis. The researchers found that unless the oil palm plantations are strictly confined to previously deforested land and not allowed to spill over into conservation or indigenous areas, the total amount of CO2 emissions from biodiesel, made from palm oil produced in that region, may exceed the carbon intensity of petroleum diesel, which biodiesel intends to replace. Brazil has drastically increased its production of biodiesel over the last decade. In each of the scenarios, 22.5 million hectares of land were converted, creating 29 billion gallons of biodiesel each year.

Geologic Clock Helps Scientists Determine Moon's Age Planetary researchers headed by Dr Seth Jacobson from the Observatory de la Cote d’Azur in Nice, France, say they have determined that the Moon formed nearly 100 million years after the start of the Solar System. Moon. Image credit: Luc Viatour. Dr Jacobson with colleagues simulated the growth of Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars from a disk of thousands of planetary building blocks orbiting the Sun. By analyzing the growth history of the Earth-like planets from 259 simulations, they discovered a relationship between the time the Earth was impacted by a Mars-sized object to create the Moon and the amount of material added to the Earth after that impact. Augmenting the computer simulation with details on the mass of material added to the Earth by accretion after the formation of the Moon revealed a relationship that works much like a clock to date the Moon-forming event.

8 Subconscious Mistakes Our Brains Make Every Day Editor's Note: This is one of the most-read leadership articles of 2013. Click here to see the full list. Get ready to have your mind blown. I was seriously shocked at some of these mistakes in thinking that I subconsciously make all the time. Obviously, none of them are huge, life-threatening mistakes, but they are really surprising and avoiding them could help us make more rational, sensible decisions.

RADIATION REACTION Inertial reaction forces (discussed in "The Origin of Inertia") are a commonplace of everyday life. When we push on stuff, it pushes back because of its inertial mass. Less common in everyday life are pronounced recoil forces -- a special type of inertial reaction force -- like those experienced when shooting a gun or stepping out of a small boat onto a dock. But we know that they're quite real. The generalization of those experiences is the realization that whenever some massive object ejects part of itself, since the ejected part carries away energy and momentum, the original object must experience a recoil force. 3D Space Scene HD Wallpapers DMCAPrivacy policy All submitted content remains copyrighted to its original copyright holder.
