A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.

T he exact biological process of how thought, emotion and “a sense of self” is formed is still unknown. In other words, it has never been proven where, exactly, a thought comes from. Consciousness itself, remains one of the biggest of mysteries.

Interestingly, one of the most renowned mind pioneers of the last century, Carl Jung, originated the concept that “perception is projection”. Basically, this means “the world you describe” says more about you than the world you describe.

Anyway, in the classic 1991 book, The Holographic Universe: The Revolutionary Theory of Reality, Michael Talbot expounded greatly on physicist David Bohm‘s and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram‘s holographic universe paradigm, and how it relates to perception, consciousness and the brain.

And now, there’s new evidence that suggests that the brain uses holographic principles to perform its operations. This recent, compelling support for the paradigm of a holographic universe is related to string theory. String theory (which introduces the possibility of parallel universes) is thought by many theoretical physicists to correctly describe all fundamental forces of nature.
