The Holographic Jesus

03/15/2013

An ancient Egyptian manuscript has just recently been translated.  Written in the Coptic language, this Christian text has an interesting spin on the Last Supper story.  Namely, that Jesus could change shape and form.  That in and of itself may not mean much, except that it throws new light perhaps on several of the other biblical stories.

Biblical scholars and theologians have never been able to adequately explain the post-resurrection stories about Jesus.  The ones where Jesus appears separately to the disciples and Mary Magdalene but they do not recognize him.  In Mary’s case, she thought Jesus was a gardener and the disciples thought that they were talking to a total stranger.  What’s more Jesus did not allow them to touch him.  How could he when he was not in physical form?  Finally, Jesus simply disappears right in front of the disciples!

In order to understand how those things are possible, one needs only to turn to quantum physics.  In his book ,The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot elaborates on this process as follows: “Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately projections from another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time:  The brain is a hologram folded in a holographic universe!”  In the movie, The Matrix, Morpheus stated it much simpler when he said, “What is real?  How do you define real?  If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”

Just as Morpheus stated, we create our reality as a result of our brains interpreting electrical signals received from our physical senses.  For example, our eyes “see” in 2D and transmit a 2D electrical signal to our brain which converts it into a holographic 3D image.  This image is then displayed in an area of our brain, all of which gives us the perception that we are actually seeing a real object outside of ourselves.  This area of the brain that sight takes place in is not only incredibly small, but contains no light whatsoever!

Albert Einstein said that, “Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one” and distinguished scientists like David Bohm, Alain Aspect and Karl Pribram agree.  In that vein, Einstein was the first to realize that space and time were constructs.  However if space/time is a construct (someone built them), then who are we and what exactly does that make Jesus?  Keep in mind that we’re talking about the Jesus who the disciples couldn’t recognize or touch.  In effect, we’re talking about… a holographic Jesus.

Epilogue

Of course, believers think that they already know the truth about God – their sacred books tell them so.  Each religion’s sacred book is considered by their followers to be the one and only Word of God because, for them, truth is in the eye of the beholder.  What new words of wisdom can you tell people who proclaim that they are God’s chosen people (as if God would ever choose one of his children over another).  Under those circumstances, what’s a prophet to do other than to keep on blogging?

“Since no one really knows anything about God, those who think they do are just    troublemakers.”

    Yes, and I think that so-called UFOs are quite likely holograms also. The small percentage that are not hoaxes that is. It would certainly explain why they are able to defy natural laws of physics, traveling at impossible speeds, making zero-gravity sharp turns and disappearing at will. The only question is, are they also projections by the same someone or something hiding behind a curtain that gave us the God complex?

    A man named Marcion, whose life straddled the first and second centuries after the ‘appearance’ of Jesus, hypothesised that those who saw him were hallucinating. Seems hardly likely, as reportedly many, many more people than just the apostles saw him. Was it a group psychological anomaly in action, or perhaps a hologram? But a hologram that can shed blood (on the cross)? There are contradictions everywhere in the story of Jesus so we end up back at the old saw, “for those who believe, no explanation is needed; for those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice.”

      You might want to consider that we are holograms ourselves.

      • Hugh Dee said

        Yes, like actors in a movie. To paraphrase Shakespeare, all the world is a stage and everyone in it is an actor. I suppose even the blood pouring out of Jesus when he was stabbed on the cross could be part of a hologram, a projected movie. But is the projector of holograms physical, i.e. inside an uncharted portion of our minds, or metaphysical, i.e. outside the material universe and thus incomprehensible? That would put a whole new meaning to the Islamic “insha’Allah” (in the hands of God.)

      • chicagoja said

        Outside the material universe. It’s only incomprehensible because we can’t directly experience it, except for the very few who can “see” beyond this plane.

      • Hugh Dee said

        Okay, but what do that very few, with their extra-sensory perception, see beyond this plane? Holograms acting out in another plane? or does it give them a periscope looking back into our dimension to watch our movie play out. Or do they just get to peek behind the curtain at the projectionist..?

      • chicagoja said

        They watch the movie play out. However, interpreting what they see is another matter. Different timelines, different futures make the picture murky.

      • Hugh Dee said

        Which takes us back to the word “incomprehensible” because the neurons in their human minds are incapable of putting together a clear picture of the immaterial. Kind of similar to the confusion of dream state, probably. Logically, can anyone perceive themselves from outside their psyche and bring back the experience into their physics-restricted mind? I think it is only fragmentary re-hashed information at best. Never mind trying to then explain it to anyone else…

        Something like that.
