MessageToEagle.com - Stanford brain researcher and the quantum physicist, Dr. Karl Pribram, was long puzzled by a
perplexing question of how and where memories are stored in the brain.
Did they possess specific locations in the brain?
While trying to figure out where in the brain memories are located, he found that the human brain is holographic.
He found that memories are not preserved in any particular part of the brain, like books lying on the shelves,
but were rather spread out or distributed throughout the brain as a whole.
Even people with medical conditions that received a portion of the brain surgically removed, have not shown loss
of specific memories.
No matter what portion of the brain was removed, their memories could not be eradicated, because they
were omnipresent, in the brain at the same time.
But Karl Pribram knew of no mechanism or process that could be responsible for the memory distribution of this kind,
until he was confronted with the concept of holography, for the first time.
If a hologram of an apple is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain
the entire image of this apple. Even if the halves of this apple are divided again and again, in small
portions - an entire apple can be still reconstructed from each small portion!.
Simply, each small portion contains complex version of the entire original image (in this case - apple).
This procedure cannot be done with a normal photograph because only a holographic part contains all the information
recorded in the whole.
Apparently, in a very similar way, our brain and memories work. Instead of having their locations in the brain's
neurons, memories are encoded in patterns of impulses crisscrossing the whole brain, in the same way as laser lights
can crisscross a piece of film containing a holographic image.
Every portion of the brain also appears to contain the whole of the brain's memories, which means the brain
is itself - a hologram!
Every piece of the original object contains the entire structure of the whole.
If it is possible for every portion of holographic film to contain ALL the information necessary to create a
whole image, then it is equally possible for every part of the brain to contain all of the information indispensable
to recall a whole memory.
Hungarian-born physicist and mathematician, John von Neumann (1903-1957) was without doubt, one of the scientific
geniuses of the 20th century.
According to his calculations, over the course of the average human lifetime, the brain stores 2.8 x 10 to the 20th
(280,000,000,000,000,000,000) bits of information!
Our almost supernatural ability to quickly retrieve whatever information we need from our brain's enormous storage
of memories is similar to hologram's enormous capacity for information storage.
In a hologram, simply by changing the angle at which the two lasers strike a piece of photographic film, it is possible to record
many different images on the same surface. So, any image recorded in this way, can be retrieved by illuminating the film with a laser
beam possessing exactly the same angle as the original two beams.
Using this method, researchers have been able to calculate an extraordinary thing! Namely, a one-inch-square of film can store
the same amount of information contained in fifty Holy Bibles!
The only possible mechanism that explains such a vast capability is that our brain is a kind of highly sophisticated
The functioning of the brain is holographic, and the brain stores its data, especially memory, throughout its
Karl Pribram's excellent theory is supported by an notable body of evidence suggesting that the brain uses
holographic principles to perform its operations.
It has also gained a strong support among neurophysiologists.

Do We Live In A Computer Simulation Created By An Advanced Alien Civilization?
The captivating idea that we might be living in 3 dimensional holographic simulation has been put forward by various scientists.
We will explore this mind-boggling idea further and examine some intriguing questions.
If we suspect that we are programmed beings living inside a simulation is there any way for us to find out if this is true?
Is it possible to change the outcome of this virtual game?

Death Is Just An Illusion:
We Continue To Live In A Parallel Universe
For as long as anyone can remember philosophers, scientists and religious men have pondered what happens after death.
Is there life after death, or do we just vanish into the great unknown?
There is also a possibility there is no such thing as what we usually define as death.
A new scientific theory suggests that death is not the terminal event we think.
Girl Who Can Start Fire With Her Brain Mystifies Scientists
Many think this young girl has supernatural abilities and scientists are puzzled by what she has accomplished so far.
She is now being called a global scientific phenomenon.
According to the family, their 11-year-old daughter has a bizarre ability to set things aflame by just being near them.
Is A New Race Of Super Earthlings Being Born
Or Is This The End Of The Human Race? - Scientists Ask
Scientists have made an unexpected and unsettling discovery - a large number of new and previously unseen mutations have been detected among humans.
There are those who suggest that there will soon be fantastic X-men among humans. These super earthlings do not come out of secret laboratories,
as in famous blockbuster movies, but are born naturally. Other scientists are less optimistic and consider the unforeseen development can to lead to
unknown changes in the human body.
Several "God Spots" Are Responsible For Spirituality
Spirituality plays an important part in many peoples' daily life.
For years scientists have wondered whether there is a particular place in the brain, a so-called "God spot" that is responsible for spirituality.
What mechanism does determine why a person is more spiritual than others?
Our Brains Wired Like The Checkerboard Streets Of New York City!
The brain appears to be wired more like the checkerboard streets of New York City than the curvy lanes of Columbia, Md., suggests a new brain imaging study.
The most detailed images, to date, reveal a pervasive 3D grid structure with no diagonals, say scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Dancing Snakes - The Illusion Our Brain Wants Us To See
Scientists have long wanted to explain the mystery of how the Rotating Snakes illusion tricks the brain.
Visual illusions demonstrate the ways in which the brain creates a mental representation that differs from the physical
world. By studying illusions, we can learn the mechanisms by which the brain constructs our conscious experience of the world.
Entering The Worlds Of Moving Holograms
Moving holograms have long been considered science fiction, but now with new technology emerging you will soon be able to see how holograms
do almost everything, from watching TV, playing chess, walking the dog or even talking to you, giving you advice.
Holographic technology is not as new as many people think. The first holograms were invented by Dennis Gabor in 1947. He was trying to find
a method for improving the resolution of electron microscopes.
