The Holographic Universe concept assumes that our physical reality, including the entire universe, is a kind of hologram. It is a projected reality down to the smallest detail, coming from a source that is beyond our perception and imagination. This source is subject to a lot of speculations.
Underlying this notion are atomic physics and quantum mechanics. Atomic physics reveal, that our physical reality consists of emptiness, filled with electrons. Quantum mechanics reveal that electrons occur as both, particles and waves. This is described in the Double-slit experiment.
Remarkable in this experiment is the observer role. When observed, in whatever form, Electrons occur as particles, and without observation they occur as waves. As particles they are physical detectable; as waves they are not! This fact also creates a lot of speculation around the nature of our physical reality. In waveform they are called quanta. These quanta are constantly popping in and out of our reality through Quantum fluctuation, and appear to emerge and immerge from and to a state that is called The Quantum Vacuum, Zero Point Field, Non-Locality, or simply The Field. The field can be represented as a ubiquitous imperceptible force field of waves of possibilities and potentials. This field also would be beyond our perception and imagination. ‘Who or what’ is using this field to create reality, is again subject to a lot of speculation.
In order to clarify this affects to our reality, we can for example take electromagnetic radio waves who need a receiver, a radio or tv set, to convert the invisible radio waves into ‘real’ video and audio. It gives an idea, how those waves of possibilities and potentials from the field, received by our brain, are converted to a visible and tangible reality. Within this view, the brain generates the reality which we are conscious of in a personal manner. This vision is described in the Holonomic Brain theory.
So there would be no solid reality, but a projected and reflected holographic reality that, when observed, only in our brain is experienced as solid.
