Publisher's Summary

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, The Holographic Universe is a landmark work with exciting conclusions that continue to be proven true by today's most advanced physics, cosmology, and string theory.

Fail

I expected this book to reviewed inconsistencies in physics theories and show how holograms can resolve them, similar to how string theory may resolve inconsistencies between quantum physics and general relativity.
Instead this book is a collection of psychic stories and paranormal accounts, which the author argues can be explained by the holographic nature of the universe. The failure is the logic doesn’t work the other way; these paranormal accounts don’t require holograms. You can substitute “holographic universe” with “God” or “aliens” and make the same exact arguments.

excellent

This title was intriguing and one I'll revisit often. I've had beliefs that I'm just now locating scientific resources for my whole life. This audible text is one that affirms my 'knowing' of spirit and life.

I listened to this twice it was SO good!

I really connected to this book as so much was pertinent to my healing work. I am currently navigating through my Healing Touch apprenticeship. I will be incorporating much of this into my practice. There is so much information, I really did have to listen twice.

Holographic equivalent of Ancient Aliens

disappointing, I was expecting at least something on the holographic principle concerning black holes and information. there was none of that, instead he went off into half baked conjecture without going into much depth.

Brilliant, thought provoking work

Talbot fills this treatise with so much scientific evidence that you can help but have your perspective on the world shift and expand. He makes it profoundly clear that our minds are capable of much more than we normally utilize. I reread this book on audible after reading it the normal way years ago. It was just as profound this time as the first. Highly recommended.

truly insightful thoughts into the universe

Brilliant and thought provoking commentary into the infinite universe of the mind and spiritual being. The holographic universe can only be described as life changing and mind altering. Some of the concepts talked about in this book only reinforce my beliefs and I look forward to exploring more on this subject.

On my very short list of life-changing knowledge

Every 5-10 years I come across a book that answers all the questions that I have accumulated since a last book had such an effect. I look forward to using the lessons from the holographic universe to accelerate the arrival of the next and the next after next such book.

At best, half truths, but mostly paranormal babble

Mistakenly bought this book in the belief that this would be be an exploration of how the holographic principle as developed by the likes of physicist Leonard Susskind resolves the black hole information paradox within the framework of string theory, which it certainly is not. Promising start that rapidly becomes unlistenable for large chunks of the play time.

The long awaited audio version - well delivered

A wonderful exploration of the multiple realms that can be better understood from a holographic perspective. Lots of well documented research, interesting connections and anecdotes. A bunch of ideas i still don't quite accept, but i didnt buy it to maintain my present understanding and welcome the challenge. I'll be listening to it all again in the near future.

a very thought provoking book.

i can honestly say that this book has changed the way that i see things. some people might think that some of the claims are a bit reachy, but there is much food for thought.

Fantastic Book

Loved every page, amazing listen. The research even made my girlfriend think about things differently after looking up some of the studies, and she is a or was a true nonbeliever.

Excellent

Very well researched, and deeply thought provoking.
The nature of consciousness needs to be investigated. Our potential can only be imagined.
