Hi Upasana! TY very much, it makes me smile. Nov. 19 is my Meditation Birthday. How old am I? I’m not sure. I used to tell people I judge it from my last significant past life, and that’s yet another story. And now that I think about it, perhaps I’ll write a piece…
But, to the point of this one, when I started to connect to what I call the “Edge,” about 6 months ago, a lot more things, energetically, started to fall into place. There’s a lot of idiocy you can find about the “Holographic Universe,” & some true things, too, but, in essence, it’s a conjecture by Cosmologists, which springs from an actual fact in Physics about Black Holes. Physicists had an apparent conundrum with Entropy, ie, Information: What happened to all the Information contained in the stuff that fell into a Black Hole? The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics says it can’t just … disappear! And, yet, they thought that’s what was going on. Stephen Hawking showed that the “memory” of what exists in the 3D interior of a Black Hole is stored in the 2D Event Horizon (the ‘point of no return’).

So that’s what the Holographic Universe REALLY means: It’s a conjecture that all the information in the 4D (space-time) world we experience may be contained in a 4–1 “Hologram” in the Boundary, ie, the Edge, of our Universe.

Cool … Now, plug that into so many non-scientifically stated traditional concepts … the Akashic Records or (if the Universe is alive:) “God knows all.” Wow! or, also, how do “past lives” actually work?

And I’ll drop you just one more: In the Special and General Theories of Relativity, there’s something called the Equivalence Principle, that there’s no absolute frame of reference — WHEREVER you are, you appear to be at the Center — conversely (get ready) and this is me talking again, wherever you are, you’re in the Edge. William Blake, a universe in a raindrop. Hold onto your hat!

Isn’t that fun? Thanks, Upasana! Catch you again later! I must have put something in my coffee…
John
