According to an astro-physicist on tv the other day a new sub-atomic particle has been discovered which causes a radical review of our view of the universe. Now, it is being proposed, the universe appears to be a hologram. I am not an astro-physicist but I have said for many years now that the Sun revolves, with its sister stars, around a centre we call a Cosmos. I use the plural form ‘we’ since I was taught this by others. That Cosmos, which is known to us as the Pleiades, revolves around a greater centre called a Nebula, or series of star clusters (Cosmoi), which in turn floats in the Galactic sea.
As we look out at the night sky it is suggested, from this scheme, that what we are looking at is the universe reflected through a series of ‘lenses’ or, better perhaps, surfaces, which themselves reflect the universe from their level of expression.
Could this be the hologram the scientist was speaking about?
Consider how light is refracted and reflected as it passes into and through water. Each cosmos is a droplet in the Galactic Ocean and the light from within it will be ‘bent’ by the surfaces it passes through. Who can say how many reflections it will cast out into the wider universe to be apprehended by others as distinct points of light or stars when viewed from another vantage point in Space? Rather like the famous ‘disco ball’ of the 80s.
Firstly there will be the reflections within the Cosmos itself, from the inner walls of the external form. Then there will be the same objects reflected in the inner, and outer, walls of the other Cosmoi of the Nebulaic system. These reflections may appear as distinct objects in their own right, independent of the first reflections observed from within the parent Cosmos. Then, of course, there will be the objects themselves.
Does each new surface of consciousness – Solar System, Cosmos, Nebula, Galaxy – carry a discrete ‘skin’ which contains it, and, in this way, gives rise to further walls to reflect upon?
Or are we simply witnessing the latest revival in ‘the Universe made in man’s image’ that has become popular in science over the last few decades?
